    Uh oh, Oopsters . . .

    Guz may be going just a little TOO far . . .

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 18 “The Everlasting Man-thing”(72) 5/23/2013 Thursday


    Panel One


    On board the USASC “Jason Biggs” about 12 kilometers from the Chula Islands. Commanded by Admiral Queege Bessemer who is in the C and C and is watching the big LCD repeater screen showing a combination of the SONAR, RADAR and satellite images and other Elint processed and combines into one color-coded-digital display for him to have full knowledge of the area of 50 sq.K. where his still secret Manta class Air and Sea ship. Been on patrol in secret for two years now in the Pacific dealing with “events” better kept out of the public eye. And part of the AUMF that has been SOP for at least a decade or more.


    Panel Two


    After one of their F-22’s was shot down, they went on alert and told CincPac and proceeded on course at best speed to reach the island chain after emerging from being in sub-sea rest mode.


    Then they got frantic calls from the “President/King” asking then demanding for their help. Lt. Stoltz told him the calvary was coming. He had to smile at that. So old fashioned yet still relevant in the early 21st century world of the continuing GWOT.
    -—-
    Pentagon officials today claimed President Obama and future presidents have the power to send troops anywhere in the world to fight groups linked to AL-Qaeda, based in part on the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), passed by Congress days after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Speaking at the first Senate hearing on rewriting the AUMF, Pentagon officials specifically said troops could be sent to Syria, Yemen and the Congo without new congressional authorization. Michael Sheehan, the assistant secretary of defense for special operations and low-intensity conflict, predicted the war against AL-Qaeda would last at least 10 to 20 more years. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) challenged the Pentagon’s interpretation of the Constitution and that the entire world is a battlefield. “This is the most astounding and most astoundingly disturbing hearing I’ve been to since I’ve been here. You guys have essentially rewritten the Constitution here today,” King said. “You guys have invented this term ‘associated forces’ that’s nowhere in this document. … +It’s the justification for everything, and it renders the war powers of Congress null and void.”+ (5/18/2013)

    Best not to talk to King Guz when he is so angry, Alley.

    And what if some of your soldiers start mutinying Guz? (which Alley may have included in his question — and you didn’t get)

    At the risk of being called “small minded” – How much longer will this ridiculous conversation continue?

    Second day in a row you’ve made this mistake. The word is correctly spelled c-a-v-a-l-r-y.

    Perhaps this is a commentary on the Republicans’ demands to keep on building more prisons?
    They also love to privatize prisons for profit. Look at Louisiana, which has most of its prisons privatized. Their incarceration rate is more than double the rest of the U.S., which herself has the highest incarceration rate of any developed nation.

    perhaps, ashburn, you read to much into a comic strip. Dem’s always looking under a rock to bash anyone who disagrees with them.
