If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.
from 1984 by George Orwell
In Ghazni province in eastern Afghanistan, one child was killed and three more injured when the bomber pushing an ice cream cart detonated his device.[...]In another attack, 16 members of one family were killed by a Taliban bomb as they drove to a shrine in Kandahar province popular with day-trippers and picnickers.
These attacks epitomize what I claim is the actual modus operandi behind this "war": terrorists who are actually working together to destroy civilization, pretending to be attacking each other, but actually attacking innocent people as their proxies.
I suspect this is similar to what's actually happening in Syria too: a "Black Bloc" on both sides (government and protesters) perpetrating atrocities against people on both sides who are not part of the Black Bloc. The two actual sides are the Black Bloc (on both sides) vs. humans (on both sides). Keep it in mind as see if it doesn't explain a few things.
Well, enough of the trivia. You can now return to the crucial matter of the day, i.e. protecting Congress' veneer of morality and respectability, and preventing them from thinking about attractive young women  fawning over a certain large member, so it can back to the business of serving Satan and destroying mankind, forever.
 Or, in Barney Frank's case, himself.
