I, Obamanus Hussein Rex, Dragonslayer

I originally posted this July 13, 2008. Some four years later it is relevant again as Obama is today absorbing the adoration of his base for doing his job and agreeing to continue the quest to kill OBL. Making this moment possible took others many tireless hours of connecting the dots, political ridicule and name calling from lesser beings and impending personal danger to achieve over a long decade. Now some narcissist will take credit for himself. A classless buffoon who did everything in his power to oppose the policies and decisions that made this moment possible.

As my explanation unfolds substitute the Iraq War with the UBL killing. 


Back in 1981 there was a movie called Dragonslayer that has a scene towards the end that reminds me of the current situation in Iraq. This is a stretch but allow me to explain.

As of this writing the surge troops have been brought back. Some units that were scheduled to be deployed will not be and in recent days news has come that about 20% of our victorious troops will begin an accelerated stand down and the Iraqis stand up. Just as the President has been saying all along. I believe this acceleration my have some political motivation as the election draws near and that is where the scene from Dragonslayer comes in.

Briefly let me remind you of the gist of the movie. The people of Urland are plagued by a dragon. The King of Urland, Casidorus Rex holds a lottery every year where a virgin is selected to be sacrificed to the dragon in hopes of appeasing the it. Emissaries are sent to employ a magician, Ulrich, to destroy the dragon. Ulrich is too old and frail to travel to Urland but his young apprentice, Galen, takes up the challenge. He carried with him a magic stone Ulrich gave him.

Once in Urland Galen falls in love with the king's daughter earning him the hatred of the king and his men who take every measure to keep Galen from being the one to slay the dragon. They become rivals and the king wants the magic stone around Galens neck. When the king's daughter discovers that her father has withheld her name from the lottery she rigs it so her name is selected. Galen is then forced to battle the dragon to save her.

Galen risks his life trying to but the dragon is too powerful. He discovers that Ulrich has made the journey with his magic in the stone. Galen has been instructed to thrown the stone into the lake of fire in the dragon's cave. When he does Ulrich appears and together they slay the dragon.

Now to the point I want to make. In the end Galen has taken a beating, he is bloodied yet victorious. The dragon's carcass has crashed to the ground and the citizens are gathered around it. In comes the cowardly Casiodorus Rex who climbs upon the dragon's body, drives a sword into its body and proclaims "I Casiodorus Rex, dragonslayer."

Bush and his defenders who have taken the criticism from lesser people than themselves whose intent was more for political positioning than concern for our national security are like Galen and Ulrich. Those of the BDS persuasion are like the king and his men.

The troops cannot be withdrawn by the time Bush is out of office. Should Obama win the Democrats will certainly claim that Republicans started the war and Democrats ended it though it was going to happen anyway regardless who is President. ( The SOFA specified December 31,2011 as the date troops would be out of Iraq ).

I mean if they can blame Republicans for high oil prices who knows what other delusions they will try to promote. Since history is written by liberals, that belief will be taught as fact by the rest of the liberal indoctrination and support system's along with their other lies to future generations.
