-George W. Bush
Now that it is painfully obvious that the Bush administration is going to treat the much-hyped Iraq Study Group report with as much disdain as they have for the U.S. Constitution it becomes increasingly obvious that the Middle East pressure cooker that is Vietnam Redux to many, the chance to kick off Armageddon in preparation for the glorious reappearing of Jesus to millions of others and the much desired clash of civilizations (religions) is only going to become costlier and more dangerous. You see the Rapture Bus is now headed for the end of the cliff with the lunatic in chief and his enablers intoxicated by their lust for blood and power.
The reich wing neocon freaks have gone into full attack mode in the aftermath of the James Baker-Lee Hamilton public spanking to Le Enfant Terrible and the winged monkeys have taken to the media as this story from Sunday’s New York Times (subscription required) states:
The Wall Street Journal’s editorial page described the report as a “strategic muddle,” Richard Perle called it “absurd,” Rush Limbaugh labeled it “stupid,” and The New York Post portrayed the leaders of the group, former Secretary of State James A. Baker III and Lee H. Hamilton, a former Democratic member of Congress, as “surrender monkeys.”
As to why in the hell that the ‘liberal’ NY Times even bothers to legitimize that horse’s ass Rush Limbaugh by quoting that thrice divorced, hopped up sex tourist and longtime bigot who is unable to get an erection without pharmaceutical assistance is as damning a testament to exactly how low that our national discourse has sunk but also exposes the liberal media lie as exactly that.
As former Vice President Henry A. Wallace once stated:
“The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. “With the inclusion of the Limbaughs, Coulters, O’Reillys and the rest of their poisonous ilk as though they are actually purveyors of truth and wisdom rather than insidious demagoguery and propaganda the American fascists have accomplished their mission and a television addicted, ignorant and perpetually befuddled and fear filled flock of sheep that are the general public are their facilitators. The corporatists that control the media are well served by their shills who seek only to divide and conquer in the name of the glory of the almighty dollar and then there are the other interested parties in sowing the seeds of world chaos.
Iraq’s puppet president Jalal Talibani did the bidding for his neocon masters by rejecting the ISG report outright and snarling derisively that the it was an “insult” and that “we can smell in it the attitude of James Baker”, no comment has yet been issued by Ahmed Chalabi. Granted that James Baker is a snake and a corrupt one at that but the ‘Velvet Hammer’ is nobody’s fool and as a representative from the more pragmatic of the elite his primary duty is not to end the war in Iraq but rather to prevent one in Iran. The oligarchy knows that their cover has been blown by Junior and the neocons, news of their incestuous relationship with hard line Zionists is slowly seeping out (not in the corporate media of course) and they are killing the goose that laid the golden egg by exposing the entire rotten, rigged system for the fraud that it is through their insane determination to take down Iran next and kick off the war of civilizations that is as all consuming a desire so as to be pathological.
The Israeli Lobby as usual has their panties in a huge twist over the ISG report and Le Enfant Terrible is digging in his heels after Ehud Olmert’s acting like a spoiled child who threatens to hold his breath until he dies by ratcheting up the rhetoric on the coming joint venture with the neocons attack on Iran by responding to questions asked in Germany’s Spiegel on whether a strike on Tehran was imminient with an all too Bushian “I rule nothing out” and balked at the report’s suggestions that the Israeli-Palestinian issue was a large contributor to regional unrest. The remnants of the Bush-Cheney-Rove Axis of Evil have taken their share of punches, appeared to be on the ropes but have staggered to their feet and are coming out with bared fangs like cornered garbage rats and the emperor will present his own plan just in time for Christmas like a big ole lump of coal in the stockings for the already overstretched military and the maxed out national debt. After initially appearing receptive to the Baker-Hamilton group, Rove and Cheney and the dark ideological forces that drive them have successfully gotten Junior back on his feet and from early indications (and after Olmert’s hissy fit) are clawing and scratching their way back into the game with an assist from an accommodating and cowed media that is all too willing to poo poo the suggestions of Baker et al.
It all comes down to the egos and agendas of the crazed Bush and Cheney, the dual loyalist neocons and the Israeli hard liners and the bodies are just going to keep piling up while irrational warmongers are allowed to continue to call the shots. Isn’t it time to stop supporting callous arrogance and apartheid? The intransigence of Israeli hard liners needs to stop being underwritten in American blood and taxpayer dollars because we are just being used by these zealots as though we are some unthinking Golem that can be unleashed as a proxy warrior. Just note the tone in a Reuters piece entitled: Israelis piqued by nuclear “confirmation” . This is regarding new Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ acknowledgement that Israel is a nuclear power:
“It’s quite unprecedented,” a retired Israeli diplomat told Reuters on Thursday when asked about Gates’s testimony. “I can only assume he has yet to get to grips with the understandings that exist between us and the Americans.”
Come to grips with the understandings? Just what in the hell kind of crap is that? Isn’t the dog supposed to be the one that wags the tail and not the other way around?
The Bush administration is now in lockstep with Olmert and the Israel Lobby who are unable to swallow the poison pill of accommodating Palestine and opening dialogue with Iran and Syria for the greater good of stability as well as allowing the U.S. to extricate itself from the Mesopotamian meat grinder that is now set on high. In fact if anything the Iraq Study Group report has ramped up the Israeli push for all out war and the propaganda is already being manufactured in stories like Syria preparing for war with Israel and the ultra inflammatory Iranian Holocaust Conference and will soon reach the saturation point once it seeps into the domestic media, you see the window of opportunity for hard line Zionist dreams of conquest and murder thy neighbor rather than engage in negotiating political solutions is about to close.
And Jimmy Carter, a man who does more in ten minutes for this good of this country than George W. Bush could achieve in ten lifetimes of his disrespectful, indolent existence is of course having to weather the storm of the dual loyalist swine and GOP operatives who have launched a withering barrage of vitriolic attacks against the former president for his very frank and honest book: Palestine: Peace, not Apartheid.
To hell with Israel! No, better yet fuck Israel and I am speaking as an American taxpayer who is sick of getting my blood sucked out by those vile warmongering parasites who exploit the red state fundamentalist knuckle draggers into uniting with them in an unholy alliance against democracy in America. It is a sad day indeed when being pro-American and anti-foreign influence makes one an enemy of their own fucking government but that is life in the post 9/11 through the looking glass version of Amerika and goddamn it, if the bought and paid for media would ever dare to speak the truth millions of others would similarly renounce those duplicitous, manipulative scumbags in Tel Aviv who yank our politicians around like puppies on chains due to their history of blackmail, bribery and outright thuggish tactics.
And if their American agents in AIPAC and other components of the Israel Lobby are offended by Mr. Carter’s book which they obviously are considering the amount of slander that they are engaging in then they should just get on a fucking plane or a boat bound for Israel and get the hell out of this country before any more American boys have to die in wars largely being waged for their benefit.
Unless they are prepared to abandon their abysmal human rights abuses then America needs to cut them loose like the petulant children that they are throwing temper tantrums now that the neocon agenda has been exposed and their influence over U.S. foreign policy threatened. If Americans had any semblance of an honest media they would be horrified if given an opportunity to glimpse the true faces of the wolves that they have been bedding down with against our own national best interest.
With the media cone of silence over any legitimate debate on the Israeli-Palestinian issue as well as the knee jerk attacks by the activists and operatives Israel Lobby against any and all critics of the brutal tactics of the regime as they continue to give the rest of the world the finger it is time for Bush-Cheney-Rove to face the most severe judgments possible under the law for their myriad of crimes against the constitution and humanity.
It is also time to call a spade a spade and until saner elements are able to wrest control from the Likudnik lunatics it is time to hang the nuclear armed rogue state Israel out to dry lest they drag America further into the hell of their own creation. As dangerous and influential arch-neocon ideologue Michael Ledeen so eloquently put it:
“Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business”
I personally couldn’t think of a better country to throw against the wall (or more appropriately under the bus) than Israel, the Judas Iscariot of U.S. ‘allies’ (remember the USS Liberty) and there would be no better way to show the world that we mean business by ceasing to provide weaponry and financial support to that crappy little country until they begin to see the light that their actions are unacceptable and have consequences.
It’s time to show the world that this nation is the United States of America and not the United States of Israel.
Support peace and not war and call your congressmen and senators, you can be damned sure that legions of Israel Lobby connected activists are.
