US, Israel push world to brink of world war

In unleashing an all-out Middle East war with the bombing and blockade of Lebanon, and mounting escalations involving all surrounding countries in the region (Iran, Syria), Israel has committed an act of naked aggression and open fascism that easily rivals the worst acts of Hitler�s Third Reich.

In the space of mere hours, the world has been collectively incited, provoked, and dragged into an all-out war that is on course towards potential nuclear super power conflict. (Analysis from independent sources such as Electronic Intifada, Dahr Jamail, and Angry Arab News provide bloody detail on unfolding conditions, as well as historic context.)

What must be underscored and grasped at this historic moment are not simply the atrocities on the part of Israel, but the Bush administration�s pathologically sinister actions fanning the flames of this mushrooming war.

  • The insane Condoleezza Rice condoned the bombing of Lebanon, and then condemned Syria and Iran, and launched into the �terrorists� talking point mantra, repeatedly. Quoting the sick bitch (and I use the two words studiously and without hyperbole; they are accurately descriptive), �I am not going to try to judge every single act.� The fact that this monster is the US Secretary of State is beyond words.

  • The insane George W. Bush repeated the same �terrorists� talking point mantra, the same �get Iran and Syria at the same time� memo: �Every nation must defend herself against terrorist attacks and the killing of innocent life.�

  • The Bush administration and its insane UN Ambassador John Bolton cast the lone vote (1-10) against a UN resolution condemning the Israeli aggression, killing the resolution.

The entire world knows that only the US can stop it. The Bush administration won�t. It has only not even bothered to script words that sound like diplomacy, it has purposely congratulated Israel, which has spectacularly executed the shared 9/11-created policy of presumptive unilateral war against �terrorists� (all political opponents are �terrorists�).

Bush neocon maniacs like what its demented cousins in Tel Aviv have unleashed -- and want more. This comes in the wake of 1) the insane Donald Rumsfeld re-declaring war in the Middle East, reiterating that the US �is not going anywhere�; 2) a terror bombing in Mumbai (Bombay), India that can be traced to US-linked Pakistani terror groups, sparking possible India-Pakistan nuclear conflict; 3) new rounds of provocation towards Iran, and 4) North Korea.

Going back several months to the events that began this specific chain of events in the Middle East, what was the role of Israel and the US in the assassination of Rafik Hariri?

With the actions of Israel and the Bush administration, the words of Hitler burst forth once again: �The victor will not be asked, later on, whether he told the truth or not. In starting and waging a war, it is not Right that matters but Victory. Have no pity.�

Could the Israeli aggression be the Bush administration pretext for the bigger Middle East war that the neocons have long dreamed about, with the US and Israel destroying Iran and Syria simultaneously, daring Russia and China to stop them?

Is this the next stage of World War Three (begun on 9/11), or World War Four, a new and truly planetary holocaust?
