- What got us into this nightmare was a lengthy string
of mega-lies that originated within the twisted plans of Dick Cheney and
Donald Rumsfeld, back in the 1970's. The U.S. presidents that have come
and gone since then, have each played their part, in bringing us kicking
and screaming to this decision point. There are several major parallax-views
that have led the public to misunderstand and misinterpret the political
events and military actions in the Middle-East: Actions that have kept
our invasions going, and that now threaten to up-end the world-if these
lies are allowed to serve, yet again; for another cover-story that can
only end in chaos!
- The November elections set the stage for this final confrontation
between the desires of the public and the needs of the Outlaws: when it
comes to funding and perpetuating our illegal and unilateral military responses
to circumstances and to the control of those powers and resources that
have become the global stance which has always underpinned the players
in their intrigues in the Middle-East. Many nations now are involved to
the point of self-extermination in the literal outcomes of how our continued
presence there is handled.
- It has taken almost forty years to get to the point where
the United States government could be reduced from a single government
consisting of three branches-to a cabal that has absolute power and that
speaks for not only the other two branches, but who is totally opposed
to the preferences and the well-being of the people of the United States
- One indication of this paradox is the recent behavior
of Nancy Pelosi, in her capacity as the Speaker of the US House of Representatives.
If George W. Bush launches a pre-emptive war on Iran, House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi will bear full moral responsibility for that war; and her hands
will always have the bloodstains of millions of lives upon them so
long as she lives!
- "For it was Pelosi who quietly agreed to strip out
of the $100 billion funding bill for Iraq a provision that would have required
President Bush to seek congressional approval before launching any new
war on Iran. "'It would take away perhaps the most important tool
the U.S. has when it comes to Iran,' she said of the now-abandoned provision.
- "'I don't think it was a very wise idea to take
things off the table if you're trying to get people to modify their behavior
and normalize in a civilized way,' said Gary Ackerman of New York."
According to John Nichols of The Nation, Pelosi's decision to strip the
provision barring Bush from attacking Iran without Congress' approval "sends
the worst possible signal to the White House."
- "The speaker
has erred dangerously and dramatically," writes Nichols. Her "disastrous
misstep could haunt her and the Congress for years to come." Nichols
does not exaggerate.
- If Bush now launches war on Iran, he can credibly say
Congress and the Democrats gave him a green
light. For Pelosi, by removing a provision saying Bush does not have
the authority, de facto concedes he does have the authority. Bush and Cheney
need now not worry about Congress. They have been flashed the go-sign for
war on Iran.
- Nothing in the provision would have prevented Bush, as
commander in chief, from responding to an Iranian attack or engaging in
hot pursuit of an enemy found inIraq. Nor would the provision have prevented
Bush from threatening Iran. It would simply have required him to come to
Congress -- before launching all-out war. Now Pelosi has, in effect, ceded
Bush carte blanche to take out Iran's nuclear facilities. It's all up to
him and Cheney." (1)
- The Second Indication that something is dangerously amiss
are the numbers in the surge. The original demand was for 21,000.
That number has since been added to, twice; and now it looks more like
40,000 total. There was never any attempt to comply with the wishes of
the electorate or the congress, because the Decider acted immediately upon
the announcement of his stated decision as though no approval was
required, from either the people or the congress: This, despite the fact
that the public, the congress, and the world had all registered strong
disapproval for his plans from the moment he announced them. If The Decider
is determined to 'act as a president and not a Dictator-he has a direct
obligation to respond to obvious opposition, with something besides contempt!
- But that's only a sideshow: The real point is how these
'surged' troops will now be used. The Decider says they will be assigned
to Baghdad. But it's far more likely that these are the same troops that
a Russian Satellite has just spotted, massing along the Iran border with
Iraq-troops that will now be used to pre-emptively invade Iran. (2) Bush
is lying to the world one more time, to create yet another WAR-Without-Reason:
except of course to keep him, his friends, and his supporters out of jail
and still in office-until he can disappear into Paraguay, without a backward
glance. He's lied to the world so many times before, what's one-more-LIE,
when the world has apparently swallowed so many of his lies already?
- The Third Indication is the immediate reactions by those
in the area, to what is obviously about to be. There were supposed to be
US war games taking place yesterday and today in the Gulf: last night the
media had "film at eleven" of two US aircraft carriers conducting
war-games just beyond the territorial limits of Iran, in the Gulf. An Iranian
Admiral has just denied that any such actions ever happened. (3) The Brits
are also making warlike noises over the detention of 15 British Sailors
and Marines, captured by Iran, in what Iran claims were Iranian waters.
Tony Blair says otherwise and is demanding their release. So now there
are two clay pigeons sitting outside or inside Iran either or both of which
can be used as the next "Tonkin Gulf incident" for Iran.
- The Fourth Paradox is perhaps the most complex and dangerous
element: yet in an ironic twist of potentials, this one may just offer
a possible way out, if it doesn't become the actual reason to launch this
operation-for in the twisted minds of the rabid American and Israeli war-mongers
they absolutely want these new wars to happen!
- "DUBAI, United Arab Emirates: The president of the
United Arab Emirates forbade the U.S. military from using bases in his
country to attack or spy on Iran as mammoth U.S. Navy maneuvers in the
Gulf entered their second day. Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who leads
this key U.S. ally, said Tuesday that the Emirates had assured Iran that
it was not siding with Washington in its dispute over Tehran's nuclear
- Leaders of Arab nations around the Gulf have grown increasingly
uneasy with the tough U.S. stance toward Iran, believing any outbreak of
war would bring Iranian retaliation on their own soil, which lies in easy
reach of Iranian missiles. On Wednesday, the U.S. Navy continued its largest
show of force in the Gulf since the 2003 invasion of Iraq, with 15 ships,
125 aircraft and 13,000 sailors taking part in an exercise that veered
within a few dozen miles of Iran's coast." (4) However it should be
noted that Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, and Turkey, along with a host of other
states would also be drawn, one way or another, into any new war on Iran.
- "The Russians and the Chinese for their part are
also concerned, beyond their strictly commercial interests in that nation.
"Russia's Foreign Ministry has sharply criticized the United States
for what it called over-reliance on force and warnedWashington against
military action against Iran, The Associated Press reported. Russia criticized
what it called "the creeping American strategy of dragging the global
community into a large-scale crisis around Iran," saying that Tehran
helps maintain stability in Afghanistan and Central Asia." In an already
scrubbed report, Russian and China had also warned the US thatWashington
must sit down at the table with Iran and solve this dilemma diplomatically.
Simultaneously they also told Iranthat they needed to back down from their
hard line position on developing nuclear facilities. It would appear that
these two major nuclear powers want this stand-off defanged, so that the
world can return to that time before the USA began to behave like the Hulk-of-all-Superpowers
that has become overly enchanted with their own purely-macho approach to
- This is the totality of what's on the table now, and
thanks to Nancy Pelosi, there is no congressional way to stop the Bushwhackers
from shattering the Middle-East-like the proverbial Piñata that
floats above the banquet-table of the war-mongers-drooling over the 'possibilities'
that await their next and perhaps final move to empower Israel, and to
capture the entire Middle-East, for the Corporatocracy and the Oil, in
a bold and savage move.
- The only final Paradox that remains, is that in all of
this American Military planners have failed to account for what they may
actually face with this new attack-exactly as they did when Rummy ran his
dog & pony show into Baghdad in 2003. No matter how many times the
lies of this administration are repeated-it does not make them true! As
the intensity of the bloodlust in their greed does not insure success;
so too the half-hearted assessments of the defense of Iran, will not change
the outcomes of the trajectories of Iranian missiles one iota. If this
misguided and criminal attack gets underway-at any time-the world will
suffer for this crime: for decades to come if any of us survive at all.
Congress is now irrelevant-again-but the rest of the planet is apparently
awakening to the reality that now threatened people everywhere. Why not
add your voice to those of the other peoples that oppose this Nightmare
