Bomb Iran? "Yes We Can". A lunatic speaks.

Normally I don't post on the week-end.
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

  1. Penny,
    Could you possibly switch to using black ink instead of pale grey. I am having great difficulty reading your blog.
    It could be intentional that certain blogs seem to on the grey instead of black.
    Thanks E

  2. Hullo Pen,

    My favourite bit was You might as well do it right and get the credit. Ha ha ha, does it get any more Jewish than that sentence? Thinking about it, it's almost a perfect crystallisation of Jewish mindset. Not a word of truth in it and all of it covered in a glaze of unctuous flattery. Can you dig it?

    Anyway I wonder if Keller has any idea that he just declared himself such a caricature? I doubt it.

  3. Hey E

    I am going to do an overhaul of the blog asap and will change that

    The lettering comes automatically with the template unless I change the html, which I may have to

    Your not the first person to mention that.

  4. Hey Nobody

    good to see you stopping by, I hope all is well as you journey through life....

    This editorial was just over the top

    "Not a word of truth in it and all of it covered in a glaze of unctuous flattery. Can you dig it?"

    I can dig it!

    What also crossed my mind was
    what if this was an editorial emanating from Iran?
    How would this have played out in the western media

    Oh how barbaric
    How dare they!
    What else can one expect from those people
    Their backwards

    blah, blah, blah
    All that kind of shit
    I found the whole piece repulsive, really.
    Considering the so called west is so "democratic" and intelligent and moral and all the other lies we tell ourselves about our society to hide the ugly truth.

    (I exclude myself from that our and include the dummies only)

  6. then there was this old thing he wrote back in 2003, called,

    Is It Good for the Jews.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2003/03/08/opinion/is-it-good-for-the-jews.html

    funny how all that stuff he claimed was pure conspiracy theory turned out to be true.

  7. Penny, I think you might have missed this bit: "The scenario above is extracted from an article by Matthew Kroenig in the latest issue of Foreign Affairs. (The particulars are Kroenig's; the mordant attitude is mine.)"

    Not that I want to defend Keller, although he is satirising Kroenig his later comments show he's not on the side of truth and light. He's subtle but he reinforces the stereotypical zionist view of the mad Ahmadinejad and the notion that Iran is hell-bent on being a nuclear power and also raises the spectre of Israel's incineration (holocaust meme): "The opposite pole, also awful to contemplate, is the prospect of living with a nuclear Iran. In that case, the fear of most American experts is not that Iran would decide to incinerate Israel. (Mahmoud Ahmadinejad does a good impression of an evil madman, but Iran is not suicidal.)"

    He finishes with:
    "That short-term paradox comes wrapped up in a long-term paradox: 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."

    Apparently very moderate, but if you're a cynic like me (and I think you are) then you might read that as saying 'we need to bomb them into the stone-age so they can't redouble their nuclear pursuits'.

  8. Hey AP

    that was a "conspiracy theory"?
    Well then, it strengthens the case that conspiracy theory is indeed the unspoken truth.

    A cadre of zionists in the Bush office? check!

    Oddly enough he sort of contradicts himself near the end when he says..

    "What is demonstrably true is that Israelis believe that the war in Iraq is -- to use a phrase that is a staple of Jewish satire -- good for the Jews."

    So the was in Iraq was not being undertaken because it was good for Israel it just happens to work out that way??

    Same with Libya
    Most definitely the same for Syria
    Same for Lebanon....
    You get the picture?

    Must be serendipity?

    Let's quote Tony Blair, just for fun here.


    "As I recall that discussion, it was less to do with specifics about what we were going to do on Iraq or, indeed, the Middle East, because the Israel issue was a big, big issue at the time. I think, in fact, I remember, actually, there may have been conversations that we had even with Israelis, the two of us, whilst we were there. So that was a major part of all this."

    http://walt.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2010/02/08/i_dont_mean_to_say_i_told_you_so_but

    Then of course Olmert was all on about how good the war on Iraq was for Israel

    President Bush also said the Iraq was is good for Israel as is the entire "democratization" of the ME-

    President Bush
    "If you’re a supporter of Israel, I would strongly urge you to help other countries become democracies," President Bush declared Monday, in a major address defending American policy in Iraq and his wider vision for the region. "Israel’s long-term survival depends upon the spread of democracy in the Middle East."

    And by the by isn't the ME being "democratized" as I type this very response?

    Why yes, yes it is!

  9. Hey Freethinker

    I read the entire piece

    I only post bits for the sake of brevity.

    Keller's "mordant attitude" is more sick then biting painful

    As for the particulars...

    Iran at this time is not nuclear armed.

    I put that paragraph into my post to demonstrate the lies of keller, he claims Iran has nuclear weapons, or implies it whichever, but contradicts himself within that paragraph by noting that IAEA inspectors may not be present next time- therefore they are always present now.

    And they are.

    In fact it is being reported today that Iran is willing to extend the IAEA inspections..

    http://www.timesofoman.com/innercat.asp?detail=54211

    Even the NYT's is reporting this, much to their chagrin I am sure

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/31/world/middleeast/iran-offers-to-extend-un-nuclear-inspection.html

    Freethinker, me a cynic...what?
    never ;)

  10. OH and btw, one more angle to look at this comment with

    Taken from the perspective of an ultra sensitive follower of Judaism

    This as an insult!

    "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.

    Israel the incompetent nation.
    So useless they can't even fight their own wars.
    Israel can't even get job done.

    LOL

  11. That's the reason I almost never read or watch the mainstream media anymore. This unbearable viciousness, this callous disregard for truth or justice is not good for my blood pressure. The most depressing once you realized that you're in bizarro world (or in the Matrix, choose your preferred metaphor) is to see people of your entourage, who are rather intelligent, being completely blind to the obvious bullshitness of everything. Really disturbing. I have a long time friend which whom I studied, a real ├╝bergeek, with mathematical abilities I could only dream of, who is so naive, it's touching again. For instance he hated Alain Soral's book "Comprendre l'Empire", probably because it didn't show a world that is self-regulating but instead full of conspiratory power struggle.
    When we discuss subjects of actuality, it's obvious he mixes everything up, because he doesn't know the players of the power strugle.

  12. Hey Gallier:


    Bad for the blood pressure.
    Definitely.

    "The most depressing once you realized that you're in bizarro world (or in the Matrix, choose your preferred metaphor) is to see people of your entourage, who are rather intelligent, being completely blind to the obvious bullshitness of everything."

    I understand that completely, you just listen to people talking and it's like.....what??
    Can't you see that this is bullshit or that is pure fabrication???
    But they can't. Wait a minute it is not that they can't it is that they won't.

    It is easier to deny the reality then face the truth.

  13. Let me know if the changes are better or worse for readability?
    Of course I think it looks clearer and I am partial to the burnt orange colour....sort of penny like ;)

    ReplyDelete
  14. That's true, the denial is obvious. The funny thing about my buddy, is that he needs the belief that "institutions" work as advertized. I don't know why he needs that, but it certainly would be to disturbing for him to see first corruption and then perhaps sometime integrity.

    With institutions I mean things like the "peer review process" in science or regulatory bodies like WHO and such.

    The funny thing with my friend is his selective blindness. He has no problem accepting the revisionist message but will not accept that 9/11 might have been done by mossad et al.

    One thing that gets me with him, is that he has first hand experience with the corruption of local politicians, since he accepted the role of administrating the library in the town he lives in. The former administrator and mayor used the library as means to recycle funds to more useful purposes (buying people and organizing lucrative events).
    That he refuses to make the leap that it is much worse the more there is money at play, is realy disheartening.

  15. i like the blog format changes Pen.

    and i agree that it is people who refuse to see, these people are the biggest problem. all this crazy psychopathy is allowed to go on because too many people just don't *want* to see the truth, it is just a little too inconvenient for them.

  16. Hey Gallier

    I honestly wonder if it some self preservation type thing at work?

    Which is weird to think of because it is better to understand the reality and ignore the theatre.

    Especially given this individuals first hand experience with corruption?
    How can he not apply it on a larger scale and understand it is systemic?

    I don't know?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks AP.

    And yes these individuals are definitely a part of the problem

    sigh....
