On May 15, the White House Moron, in a war-planning visit to
Israel, justified the naked aggression he and Olmert are planning against Iran
as the only alternative to �the
false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history."
But the White House Moron has the roles reversed. It is not
Iran that is threatening war. It is Bush. It is not Bush who is appeasing. It
Iran has not responded in kind to any of Bush�s warlike
moves and provocations. Iran has not sunk a single one of our sitting-duck
ships and has not given the Iraqi insurgents any weapons that would easily turn
the tide of war against the US.
It is Bush, not Iran, who sounds like Adolf Hitler
blustering and threatening. It is Bush�s American Brownshirts, the neocons,
who express the view, �What�s the good of nuclear weapons if you can�t use
It is the US that is funding assassination teams inside Iran
and using taxpayer dollars to fund dissident and violent organizations opposed
to the Iranian government. Iran is doing no such thing here.
It is members of the Bush Regime and US generals who
continue to lie through their teeth about Iranian support for insurgents, for
which they can supply no evidence, and about Iranian nuclear weapons programs,
for which the IAEA inspectors can find no sign.
It is the US print and TV media that serves the Bush Regime
as propaganda ministry for its lies of aggression.
All the war crimes that are being planned are being planned
by Bush and Olmert.
What would George Orwell make of the Bush Regime�s position
that anything less than a direct act of naked aggression is appeasement?
The Chicago City Council has passed a resolution
�opposing any US attack on Iran and urging the Bush Administration to pursue diplomatic
engagement with that nation.� But the White House Moron says diplomacy is
appeasement. He learned this false equivalence from the neocon Brownshirts
whose control over his administration has made America despised throughout the
world, with the exception of Israel.
After broadcasting false claims for weeks from US generals
and Bush Regime spokespersons that the US has �definite proof� in the form of
captured Iranian weapons that Iranians were �responsible for killing American
troops,� the great free American media went silent when LA Times correspondent
Tina Susman reported
from Baghdad: �A plan to show some alleged Iranian-supplied explosives to
journalists last week in Karbala and then destroy them was canceled after the
United States realized none of them was from Iran.�
A people devoid of a media are sitting ducks for tyrannical
government, which is what the US has.
What is the difference between Hitler�s concocted excuses
for his acts of naked aggression and the Bush Regime�s plan to use a briefing
by General Petraeus, with "captured Iranian weapons"
as props, as proof of Iranian complicity in US deaths in Iraq as a means to
break down public and congressional resistance to an attack on Iran?
Why has the Bush Regime suffered no consequences for this
blatant attempt to orchestrate an excuse for another war?
Why have there been no consequences to the regime for the
blatant lies it told in order to attack Iraq?
Why has the Bush Regime suffered no consequences for its
violation of US statutory laws against spying without warrants and against
In the US criminal justice system, three strikes and you are
For the Bush Regime is there any limit on its lawless
How many strikes? A dozen? Thirty? Three hundred?
Is there a limit?
