Persian Blues



The Iran thing is such a joke that it doesn't even make me laugh anymore.

We have just run up a huge tab in Iraq and Afghanistan.  With that money we accomplished little or nothing.  Our forces are beat up and tired.  Our command structure appears to be morally and intellectually bankrupt.

So now what do the AIPAC and the Neocons and the stupid ass bible thumpers want to do?  Let us invade yet another middle eastern country and see if we can break the string of none-to-good results that has been our lot of late.

Sit down and think about it.  There have been numerous articles outlining the lying and scheming by the military brass to keep their toys coming and their wars going.  The troops are on their seventh or eighth rotations in the rockpile now. 

Netanyahu and the three-pack of republican douchebags that are our current burden are having the gibbering shit fits about Iran.  Take that in the context of poseurs trying to get elected and a great deal of the smoke that they are trying to blow up your ass can be redirected someplace useful.

I am thinking that they really truly cannot be stupid enough to be thinking about this.

Can They?

I find the idea of an Iran with a nuke scary. Its as bad as those wingnuts in North Korea having one, but Iran is not nearly as isolated.

It is may not as bad as the combination of Pakistan and India having them.

War=profit. Especially in a "recession" that never really ended but became a depression which folks don't notice because the "soup lines" now come in the form of a handy-dandy debit card. Iraq and Afghanistan are "used up", so it's time to bomb a new boogeyman. War with Eastasia has now shifted to Eurasia, in fine Orwellian style...

Dammit, I can't get e-mail updates for comments here either! Thought it was just the pop up window comments that excluded the option, but now I see Blogger has screwed up this format as well. There is a special place in hell for "IT Professionals" who change perfectly good working shit just to justify their existence...
