- If you live near a military base or installation, as
I do here in New Mexico, you shouldn't be surprised if terrorists attack,
drive a suicide truck through the front gates and kill a whole lot of people.
- Fair is fair, as they say, in love and war, especially
- It shouldn't come as a surprise because the Pentagon
is now attacking the "military infrastructure" in Iran, as crack
investigative journalist Seymour Hersh reports. Of course, when the Pentagon
says "military infrastructure," it means not only missile sites,
ammo depots, etc., but also humans, the largest and most crucial part of
any "military infrastructure."
- "The civilians in the Pentagon want to go into Iran
and destroy as much of the military infrastructure as possible," Hersh
quotes a "government consultant with close ties to the Pentagon"
as saying, according to Reuters. "This is a war against terrorism,
and Iraq is just one campaign," a former high-level intelligence official
told Hersh and the New Yorker. "The Bush administration is looking
at this as a huge war zone. Next, we're going to have the Iranian campaign."
In other words, the Strausscons-who are, after all, the "civilians
in the Pentagon," put there by Bush and Cheney-are softening up Iran,
blowing things up and killing people in preparation for another invasion,
or at least an extensive bombing campaign since most of Bush's bullet-stoppers
are busy in Iraq.
- So, if "terrorists" strike the mall down the
street from where you live, you shouldn't be surprised, and you shouldn't
be angry with the "terrorists," or at least not the terrorists
in Iran, but rather those in Washington, the "civilians in the Pentagon"
who have killed more people in the Iraq over the last two years-100,000
and counting-than all "terrorists" combined have killed since
terrorism became an excuse to for the United States to invade countries
and steal natural resources (we can begin with the Philippines, Puerto
Rico, and Cuba, circa 1898). Of course, this does not take into account
the 1.5 million or so Iraqis killed since Dubya's old man invaded back
- "We obviously have a concern about Iran. The whole
world has a concern about Iran," Dan Bartlett, a top Bush aide, told
CNN after Hersh's article appeared. Isn't it nice for Bartlett to speak
for the "whole world," a world mostly in opposition to Bush and
afraid for the future, especially those who live in and around the Middle
East? In reality, only Bush, the Strausscons, and the Israelis are concerned
about Iran, that is to say they want to take out its government and re-install
the Shah, or his son anyway (who lives in America), and do a re-run of
what Bush did in Iraq. Problem with this, of course, is there are three
times as many Iranians as Iraqis, they fully expect the United States,
at the behest of Israel, to attack and have spent years preparing themselves.
Iran will be, to say the least, a tough nut to crack, but with the civilian
nuts in the Pentagon calling the shots this is apparently not much of a
consideration, same way it wasn't in the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq.
- Let's be objective for a second. If the Iranians were
"conducting secret reconnaissance missions" in America, that
is to say they were blowing up military sites and killing military personnel,
wouldn't you feel inclined to respond in some way, wouldn't you demand
your government bomb the heck out of them? Of course you would. So why
do we expect the Iranians-or the Iraqis for that matter-to react any differently?
Since Iran does not have the capability to sit off New York Harbor with
aircraft carriers or march on Washington with tanks and Humvees-the way
Bush marched from Kuwait into Baghdad-they very well may do the next best
thing to their way of thinking: attack America through asymmetrical warfare,
- Of course, they will not do this. It would be stupid
and counterproductive. It would give Bush an excuse to flatten Tehran,
Shiraz, Isfahan, Ahwaz, and other Iranian cities like he flattened Fallujah
in Iraq. Of course, he may do this anyway.
- But if terrorists did strike New York, Chicago, Los Angeles,
or numerous smaller cities in the United States, wouldn't it make perfect
sense? How would you feel if you were in the shoes of the average Iranian-looking
west toward Iraq and taking note of the destroyed water purification facilities,
the wrecked electrical grid, the deliberately targeted hospitals, sewage
running in the streets, knowing that you may be killed at any moment because
your government is run by people the Israelis want to rub out? I bet you
wouldn't take kindly to it. I bet you might talk about revenge.
- Naturally, far too many Americans believe their country
was attacked by Muslims-brother Muslims to those in Iran-on September 11,
2001, even though there is no evidence of this, even though it is absolutely
illogical and stupid to believe a handful of cave dwelling Muslims in Afghanistan
managed to pull off a terrorist attack only a well-organized government
intelligence agency-or any number of the 26 intelligence services with
a budget exceeding $30 billion in the United States (not to mention those
in Israel as well)-would have the resources and expertise to accomplish.
9/11 "was technically and organizationally a master achievement,"
Andreas Von Buelow, a former German Defense Minister. "To hijack
four huge airplanes within a few minutes and within one hour, to drive
them into their targets, with complicated flight maneuvers! This is unthinkable,
without years-long support from secret apparatuses of the state and industry."
But never mind. 9/11 was mission accomplished, millions of Americans believe
Osama and Saddam planned the whole thing, and Iran is the next target,
or one of several targets, including Syria and, eventually, Saudi Arabia.
- As Hersh tells us, it's not simply Iran, but almost anywhere
Muslims live. Bush "signed a series of top-secret findings and executive
orders authorizing secret commando groups and other Special Forces units
to conduct covert operations against suspected terrorist targets in as
many as 10 nations in the Middle East and South Asia." Now that Bush
has his "political capital," thanks to the Deliverance states
and Diebold, he will spend it killing Muslims all around the world, wherever
he and the Strausscons find them. It's a dream come true for the Israelis,
who have plotted against Arabs and Muslims since the first Zionists trekked
to Palestine, determined to steal as much land as possible and make life
a living hell for millions of Arabs.
- It's going to blow up in our faces. Obviously, the Strausscons
are criminally insane, and if America allows them to continue this madness
unchecked it will result in catastrophe, not only in the Middle East but
here in America as well. Our economy, thanks in large part to Bush's invasions
and the pilfering of government tax coffers by rich people and multinational
corporations, is about ready to crash and burn, maybe this year. No doubt
the Strausscons are aware of this and that's why "covert operations
against suspected terrorist targets," i.e., Muslims, are underway,
full steam ahead. Islam has to be eviscerated before the Sugar Daddy America
runs out of money. However, there are too many targets, limited resources,
and a smoldering resentment on the part of many Americans. It's simply
a too aggressive and accelerated a plan for the Strausscons to pull off,
not to say they won't do a terrible amount of damage before the bottom
- Even so, don't be surprised if "terrorists"
from "as many as 10 nations in the Middle East and South Asia"
decide they've had enough and attack America. Of course, this will be entirely
ineffectual because America is a huge country with an easily rallied public-polls
now indicate increasing numbers of Americans, especially in the Deliverance
states, want to intern American Muslims in concentration camps-and brainwashing
directed against Arabs, Persians, and Muslims in general runs deep, thanks
to the likes of Fox News and hate radio. Strausscons, of course, with a
lot of help from the "New Pearl Harbor" of September 11, planned
it this way. Terrorism is a good thing-as Binyamin Netanyahu said after
the attacks on New York and the Pentagon-and rest assured the Strausscons
don't give a whit about the murder of average citizens who, as the Strausscon
Lawrence Kaplan says, don't have the "stomach" for World War
IV. As dead Israelis killed in terrorist attacks serve the purposes of
Ariel Sharon and the Likudites, so do dead Americans serve the Strausscons.
- Thanks to Bush and the Strausscons, the possibility terrorists
will drive a truck packed with explosives into the neighborhood mall has
gone up exponentially.
- No amount of duct tape and plastic sheeting will make
