“Bomb, bomb, bomb... Bomb Iran.”
Evil Dick (the current Dick, not the smelly nasty dead Dick) wants to off Iran.
Don't matter our very own Department of State wants to play nice.
The Office of the Vice President wants to blow the ever-loving-shit out of them Arabs (Really they're mostly Persians but that's a level of subtly you can't expect from an Administration that can't tell a Sunni from a Shiite), blow the fucking shit out of the Arabs, anyone associating with the Arabs, anyone that looks like an Arab and their mangy mutts too.
(Pop quiz, hotshot: What's the difference between a Shiite and a Sunni -- prep material. And here's the quiz.)
A nice glaze surface glowing shiny like a firefly in the night would be fine. See that shine from space. Teach everyone -- don't try and sell oil for nothing but dollars. Nothing but net? Fuck that.
OIL: Operation Iraqi Liberation. Reusable too 'cause Dirty Dick is campaign-dollar Haliburton green. Operation Iran Liberation. Oil me up & oil me down. I'm the OIL man. Can you dig it? We're OIL.
Oil will keep sellin' for greenbacks. The Iranian Oil Bourse can go fuck itself.
(We've got a whole post coming on Oil, the U.S. dollar, and the coming great Chinese Depression. Hold on to your organs of reproduction kiddies. Life as you know it is a'changing.)
But not tonight. Tonight we're posting other stuff. Like that Israeli Bombing Run into Syria?
First it was nukes. You knew they were lying, but they kept talking and talking -- nukes, nukes, nukes. Hmmm... where have I heard that bullshit before and from whom?
Fucking Cheney wants to hit Iran and he doesn't care how he does it. Check this:
NY Daily NewsThe networks don't even want Condoleezza Rice on their Sunday blow-me shows any more.
Cheney allegedly considered asking Israel to do the dirty work of attacking a central Iranian nuclear facility in hopes of inciting a war, Newsweek magazine reported yesterday.
The revelation of the White House's alleged hawkish behind-the-scenes thinking comes just days after Iran's deputy air force commander warned his country was prepared to retaliate if Israel "makes a silly mistake."
Still, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has called for the annihilation of Israel, publicly rejects the notion his country is headed for a faceoff with the United States.
"It's wrong to think that Iran and the U.S. are walking toward war. Who says so? Why should we go to war? There is no war in the offing," Ahmadinejad said in an interview aired last night on CBS' "60 Minutes."
When asked if he was hellbent on getting a nuke, Ahmadinejad answered with a "firm no."
"You have to appreciate we don't need a nuclear bomb," said Ahmadinejad, who arrived in New York yesterday to speak at the UN General Assembly. "We don't need that. What need do we have for a bomb?"
U.S. officials have suggested Iran's main goal is to develop killer nukes while hiding behind a bogus claim that its uranium-enrichment program is for civilian energy purposes only.
The White House has also accused Iran of supplying Iraqi militants with training and weapons to fight American troops.
Newsweek reported that Cheney's former Middle East adviser David Wurmser told a small group several months ago that the vice president had brainstormed ways to quash Iran's nuclear hopes by luring it into war.
"Cheney had been mulling the idea of pushing for limited Israeli missile strikes against the Iranian nuclear site at Natanz - and, perhaps, other sites - in order to provoke Tehran into lashing out," Wurmser, who stepped down from his advisory post last month, reportedly told the group.
Such a strike would give the White House an excuse to launch attacks against military and other nuclear targets in Iran.
Citing two unidentified sources, Newsweek claimed it has corroborated Wurmser's remarks.
Wurmser's wife, Meyrav Wurmser of the neoconservative Hudson Institute think tank, told the magazine its claims were untrue.
Cheney's war-mongers have an edge over State in the propaganda wars.
Has the President sided with Cheney? Not yet. 'Cause Cheney keeps fucking up the spin. The truth is getting out WAY too fast to stick past the 25% born fanatics. (Born fanatic = born-again. Duh.)
GWB is totally & completely
You know it's a hard day for America (and the rest of the world) when our best hope of avoiding Dirty "why it's just like a penis, but smaller" Dick's palace coup is Barbara "I'm his wife, dammit, not his mother" Bush. When we lived in New Hampshire in 91-92, we used to travel up to the coast of Maine. Some nights my wife and I would drink in town just a few miles from the summer White House. You hear stories when people are drinking. Of her. Servants displeasing her and... Look, there's no way to prove anything and she's the former First Lady. All I'm saying is, people say some of the hired help never came home after her parties. And Mrs. Bush knows how to work the wood chipper.
Dirty Dick simply doesn't have the backing yet to pull a war off. The Chiefs are completely against yet a third war. So is State. So is Defense (separate from the Chiefs.) So is Homeland Security. And the incoming AG. The entire fucking Cabinet minus "his" guys, the kool-aid drinkers. Cheney's only hope is his very own Gulf of Tonkin. Like a boy, playing with fancy toy Tonkin trucks. Which is precisely what he's trying to do -- get Israeli to start something we'll finish or get a young pilot of ours to blunder into an attack and trigger an Iranian response.
Everyone knows what Cheney's up to. What does a teenage boy want? Duh. What does Dick Cheney want? Fucking duh.
People (bloggers, hurray!, and the traditional media) are all over big Dick's lies like a condom on my daughter's boyfriend. As in damn straight & every single time. (You hear me girl? No, not you; the other daughter. [Multitasking Daddy™ from Mattel. "That was such über-pwnage." Mad skillz. Kekeke!!!])
Raw StoryOne more time please.
Israel did not strike a nuclear weapons facility in Syria on Sept. 6, instead striking a cache of North Korean missiles, current and former intelligence officials say.
American intelligence sources familiar with key events leading up to the Israeli air raid tell RAW STORY that what the Syrians actually had were North Korean No-Dong missiles, possibly located at a site in either the city of Musalmiya in the northern part of Syria or further south around the city of Hama.
While reports have alleged the US provided intelligence to Israel or that Israel shared their intelligence with the US, sources interviewed for this article believe that neither is accurate.
By most accounts of intelligence officials, both former and current, Israel and the US both were well aware of the activities of North Korea and Syria and their attempts to chemically weaponize the No-Dong missile. It therefore remains unclear why an intricate story involving evidence of a Syrian nuclear weapons program and/or enriched uranium was put out to press organizations.
The North Korean missiles -- described as "legacy" by one source and "older generation" by another -- were not nuclear arms.
Vincent Cannistraro, Director of Intelligence Programs for the National Security Council under President Ronald Reagan and Chief of Operations at the Central Intelligence Agency's Counterterrorism Center under President George H. W. Bush, said Sunday that what the Israelis hit was "absolutely not a nuclear weapons facility."
The No-Dong 1 missile is a redesigned SCUD-C, which the Syrians are alleged to have acquired in the mid-1990s according to some estimations, while others say perhaps as late as 2000. According to the Federation of American Scientists, the No-Dong has a potential range/payload capacity of 1,000-1,300 km/700-1,000 kg.
The chemical explosion is believed to have included a Sarin nerve agent and made the area around the blast dangerous even after the fire from the explosion had been extinguished. The United Nations Chemical Weapons Convention treaty of 1993 outlawed the stockpiling of Sarin, but neither Syria nor North Korea are signatories to the treaty.
Some believe that the Office of the Vice President is continuing to battle any attempts at diplomacy made by the US State Department in an effort to ensure no alternative but a military solution to destabilize and strike Iran, using Syria's alleged nuclear weapons program and close relations with Iran as a possible pretext.
A Sept. 16 piece in the London Sunday Times alleged the attack proved Israel could penetrate Iran's air defenses.
"By its actions, Israel showed it is not interested in waiting for diplomacy to work where nuclear weapons are at stake," reporter Uzi Mahnaimi wrote. "The Israelis proved they could penetrate the Syrian air defence [sic] system, which is stronger than the one protecting Iranian nuclear sites."
It therefore remains unclear why an intricate story involving evidence of a Syrian nuclear weapons program and/or enriched uranium was put out to press organizations.Sing it again now...

Dick Cheney wants to off Iran.
Lying about WMDs worked once. Why not again?
