Hands Off Iran!

I am deeply troubled by low-level rumblings about an air attack upon Iran by Israel. If such an attack is launched, either with or without the use of nuclear weapons, it will instantly turn the entire Middle East into a gigantic fireball. No more Iranian oil to China will disintegrate the entire economic illusion that currently holds the US above the deep dark abyss of economic depression. We will literally be burning Dollar bills in our fireplaces. The conflagration will unleash God only knows what terrorism upon the unsuspecting populace of America, possibly demolishing every last shred of our civil liberties. Putin the Poisoner might well find it irresistible to start flinging stealth hypersonic Sunburn cruise missiles.

There was a time when the Israelis seemed to know exactly what they were doing. But no more. Now they seem fixated on an Iran that will not have nuclear weapons for at least five years. And even when they get them, they will never use them to attack Israel. Sure, Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad makes all kinds of noises about smashing Israel, but we all know perfectly well that he has no power to speak of. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei holds all power, and he merely wants to look out for his Shiite flock. He has no interest in starting any ruinous war against Israel.

And remember, Iran currently is not in tyranny. True, they do not have the democracy or separation of church and state that our founding fathers were so adamant about. But their society is arguably more open presently than any other in the Middle East.

If the more extreme elements heedlessly rush headlong into an attack on Iran that will basically lead to the utter destruction of the United States as we have come to know it. And the whole world will know perfectly well that the neocon fools in Washington were behind it all.

I must not sit around and wait for this lunatic scenario to play out any further. Maybe I am just overloaded with the fear and loathing for this disgusting mess. I have friends who are fighting in Iraq right now, and no one had better even think about allowing them to be butchered in the fireball that would instantly ignite if the now unworldly "leaders" of Israel attack Iran in any way.

Maybe I'm off my nut here, but I'm getting madder and madder, and I cannot just watch this nightmare unfold any further. So with infinite reluctance, I would say, if the maniacal Israeli "leadership" really does bomb Iran -- then we need to suddenly eliminate Israel. It is beyond awful, but we really must put some reasonable value on our own survival. After all, an awful lot of Jewish folks live here in America too. Hands off Iran, Dammit!

Could Santa come early this year...say, on November 8th?

...The master plan would need to be written and adopted by the Democratic leadership, and also made public, before the 110th Congress convenes on January 3, 2007. And it would have to be placed on the congressional table, displaying the impeachment of Bush and Cheney as its centerpiece...

Thank you, soldier, but you needn't fight for my freedoms

...I may be helping to pay the fare for the military, but I much prefer to get nothing in return. I mean nothing! Soldiers aren't fighting to defend America from enemy nations, nor are they fighting any frontlines of the war on terror. As for the idea that they are fighting for our freedoms, it borders on the ridiculous!...

Insurgents don't fight invaders...repulsers do

...These repulsers have been called just about everything under the sun, from patriotic heroes and martyrs to terrorist thugs. It's all a question of who is vocalizing either the accolades of admiration or the pejorative Rumsfeldian verbiage...
