I don't understand how it is that Pirate George and his cronies can lie through their teeth to the American people, with a straight-face to the UN and carry on blowing smoke up everyone's arse, and getting away with it.
This last week we had I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby singing like a canary to a Federal Grand Jury about how Pirate George had authorised the leaks around the Palme affair. Was this a major news story? Nah.
The outing of Palme was more than just a vindictive attack against her husband, Joe Wilson, who exposed the lies around the Niger "Yellow-Cake" story that was used as proof in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. As Michael Riviero of WhatReallyHappened.com points out, the real scandal lies in the deceptions and manipulations that led to the 2003 conquest of Iraq:
But where is the outrage?
"However, months before Joe Wilson's article appeared, the International Atomic Energy Agency had examined the documents which had surfaced in Italy purporting to document the sale of uranium to Iraq and determined that they were forgeries, and indeed, very clumsy ones.
This is the scandal behind the scandal. The outing of Valerie Plame was not done out of revenge, or as the Washington Post reports, part of a feud between Karl Rove and the CIA. Joe Wilson's article started to focus attention on the fact that the documents used to claim that Iraq was buying uranium from Niger were fakes!" More...
Seemingly unphased by what should be a major scandal, Pirate George is content to sail into yet another war of conquest and plunder, this time in Iran. This week's most debated online article is going to be Seymour Hersh's "THE IRAN PLANS" in The New Yorker. It's a must read. It's also insane.
"A government consultant with close ties to the civilian leadership in the Pentagon said that Bush was “absolutely convinced that Iran is going to get the bomb” if it is not stopped. He said that the President believes that he must do “what no Democrat or Republican, if elected in the future, would have the courage to do,” and “that saving Iran is going to be his legacy.” More...We are all aware that Pirate George thinks he has a god-complex, but the man is like the anti-Midas; everything he touches turns to shit. His legacy is already a trail of death and destruction and now he wants to add Iran to that? With Nukes? WTF?!?
New Orleans is still a mess but there is $75 million lying around to beam VOA into Iran to stir things up so that Pirate George can get to see if that Red Button really does work. The last two planks holding up the US economy is the war spending and an over-inflated housing bubble - all it takes is one prick and what was known as the USA could come crashing down around our ears.
There is no threat to the US from Iran. There is a far greater threat, not just to the US, but to everyone if Pirate George and his crew launch an assault on Iran, especially a nuclear one. And this is what I don't understand - how come we haven't been able to stop this from getting so far out of hand?
