But what is normal about the goings on in the world.
If you didn't read the previous post on Syria, please do.
But before you do, take the time to read this editorial.
Written by Bill Keller, who is allegedly the former editor of NYT's. Which I guess says it all ?
Given the NYT's propensity to shovel shit and call it news.
This editiorial was so callous in it's disregard for everything human, I was taken back.
The level of blood thirstiness in it? I don't know?
I have probably read stuff equally as appalling in the so called main stream media, but, this entire piece was oozing with venom. Callous.
No regard for human life.
Filled with out and out fabrications.
I could hardly believe this much shit could be crammed into one piece. Can you imagine the plunger needed for this... much excrement.
And the use of election slogans????
I'll just post some highlights...
"OK, MR Obama, here's the plan. Some time in the next few months you order the United States Defence Department to destroy Iran's nuclear capacity. Yes, I know it's an election year, and some people will say this is a cynical rally-round-the-flag move on your part, but a nuclear Iran is a problem that just won't wait."
There is no nuclear Iran
America's pre-emptive strike, designated Operation Yes We Can
Operation "Yes We Can" Yes we can what, be genocidal maniacs?
"Civilian casualties? Not a big deal, sir, given the uncanny accuracy of America's precision-guided missiles."
Who is this guy kidding?
America's new bunker-buster, the 13.6-tonne Massive Ordnance Penetrator, will turn the place into bouncing rubble. Fordo is more problematic, built into the side of a mountain, but with enough sorties the US could rattle those centrifuges. Excuse me? Does that take care of everything? Um, that we know of.
Nuclear power plants are not illegal. The inspectors from the IAEA have always been in Iran.
In fact in the last paragraph of this call to war, Bill Keller acknowledges the ever present IAEA inspectors.
I will quote and bold-
"An attack on Iran is almost certain to unify the Iranian people around the mullahs and provoke the supreme leader to redouble Iran's nuclear pursuits, only deeper underground this time, and without international inspectors around."
Iran will probably try to score sympathy points by trotting out dead bodies and wailing widows, but the majority of the victims will be the military personnel, engineers, scientists and technicians working at the facilities. Fair game, in other words."
Well there would be dead bodies and "wailing widows" would there not? And children who lose their parents and parents who lose their children.
Fair game? Really?
"To be sure, America could just let the Israelis do the bombing. Their trigger fingers are itchier by the day. But they probably can't do the job thoroughly without the US, and America would get sucked into the aftermath anyway. You might as well do it right and get the credit. Really, sir, what could possibly go wrong?"
You had to know the Israeli card was going to be played. Do it for God, apple pie and Israel.
Why not let Israel just do the bombing themselves, with their ever itchier trigger fingers.
After all what weapons do they have that the US doesn't. What with their 200-400 nuclear weapons arsenal. American does not have to "get sucked in" If Israel want's to go for the jugular let them do that on their own. Wow, this guy is all for American's dying for Israel's gain.
The lunatics are running the asylum!
Or in this case the lunatics are running and ruining the planet
