Kill Kill Kill Kill Kill!!!!!!!!!

Apologies to the crazy general in Mars Attacks (truly a waste of 2 hours of your life that you will never get back)...

I thought I was done for the night, but I just stumbled across an article that really confirms my privately held thoughts and fears...the PNAC (Project for a New American Century, or alternatively, the crazy-ass neocons who currently run the shadow government out of Dick Cheney's and Don Rumsfeld's office) is interjecting themselves into the Iran situation already. And, true to their form, they're not even subtle about it...remember, these are the guys who pushed President Clinton to invade Iraq immediately to stop the imminent danger from WMD's...in 1997! He said piss off, so they just put things on the back burner for a while until Emperor AWOL got himself appointed to the Oval Office. Anyway, they're now rattling sabres in Iran's direction, and saying, hell, if we don't start bombing the shit out of Iran, the Isrealis should and will. (Click here to read the PNAC's original manifesto: Rebuilding America's Defenses. It should be required reading for anyone who doesn't know or doesn't believe that everything happening right now in relation to our usage of military power overseas and government power domestically was already planned. Bush jr. has a "vision thing," it's just that it includes perpetual war and fear.)

If we put aside for a second the (in my opinion, false and extremely condescending, ethnocentric, and hubristic) PNAC'ers view of the world as "Us vs. Them" (wait, where have we heard that before?), just read the quotes and understand that these are the exact same arguments made regarding Iraq...simply buy a consonent from Pat Sajack, swap an N for a Q, and you're right back down the memory hole again. The language that really should raise your cockells is:
Gary Schmitt, executive director of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), a neo-conservative think-tank, says that with "enough intelligence and spadework", the US could "do a good job" of slowing Iran's programme for a while. But, he cautions, the Bush administration would need a "game plan" for the aftermath. That long-term approach is lacking, analysts say, and has floundered in the debate over "regime change".
Asked whether Israel would take military action if the US dithered, Mr Schmitt replied: "Absolutely. No government in Israel will let this pass ultimately."

Ummmm...excusethefuckoutofme?! Did this Mr. Schmitt just let the cat out o' the bag?!!! It could be wrong, but it appears to me that said Mr. Schmitt is indicating an Isreali strike is in the works. Un...freaking...real. Two wars without end just ain't enough for these chickenhawks. The hubris to think that we, the United States, should and do have some omnipotent, inherant power and right to rule the world and dictate to other countries simply what they can and can't do, should be unpalatable to people. Unfortunately, the 'Merkin sheeple are too busy buying cheap plastic crap at Wal-Mart and watching that noted "Man of the People" Bill O'Liely to know what's really going on.


Enough for now, I think I just burst a blood vessel...

Your Post Is So Wrong! You can't buy a CONSONANT from Pat Sajak, you have to spin and then ask for it. YOU CAN ONLY BUY VOWELS. What is wrong with you?? Clearly you have no knowledge of game shows or anything related to foreign policy.

Just kidding. Great post!

Zipsix-
I realized I incorrectly spelled that word that means "not a vowel," but at that point I was way past my bedtime. As for Mr. Sajak, you're correct; I know next to nothing about that show (although I do know that if you won, you used to be able to "shop" right there on the show, with your dismembered head floating in the corner of the screen showing all the "fabulous prizes" that you could buy with your hard-earned money. Or wait...perhaps that was/is the Price is Right. (or wrong, if you're Happy Gilmore). Anywhoo, I'm just flattered that anyone besides Mr. Geidner reads this thing, what with my completely unattractive layout, utter lack of MoritzBlawg protocol (i.e. linking to the rest of y'all...it's HARD!) and general unfocused nature of the posts!

Happy reading, glad to keep you entertained for a skosh or two.
