Listening to ol’ Joey today, and I heard the Great Fat One bragging about how he predicted that we were going to ‘deal with’ Iran two years ago, and how this was now about to happen.
The day Bush named Iraq as the next target in the ‘War on Terror’, it was clear to me that the Joint Chiefs wanted to establish a ‘beachhead’ in the Middle East, a place from which to stage the pacification of the entire region, as needed. Obviously, Iran would be the follow-on target. That was a bit more than two years ago. If ol’ Joey only figured it out two years ago, then he must be slipping in his old age.
…The real question is, are the Iranian’s engaging in nuclear weapons research in anticipation of this event, and do we really want a nuclear Iran? I think the answer to the second question is “no”, but are we prepared for the consequences of that answer?
We’ve handed these people our money, hand over fist, for 4o years now. We’ve built up their infrastructure and taught them how to drill for oil. Sold them our weapons and trained them in their use. As always, we’ve gotten the best enemy money can buy. I wonder when we’ll learn to quit doing that?
