Quit Pretending we "fixed" Iraq - Don't repeat same mistakes on Iran issue

From: Bomb Blasts Overshadow Biden Speech In Iraq

" At least five mortar rounds also fell in the Green Zone late Sunday when Biden was there, said Iraqi police officials. The Green Zone is the sprawling protected area in the heart of Baghdad that is home to the U.S. Embassy as well as the Iraqi parliament and prime minister's office.

... The twin explosions on the Fourth of July illustrated the vexing nature of the U.S. involvement in Iraq and its efforts to nudge the country toward stability and democracy."

I guess the Iraqis have run out of roses to throw at their American "liberators."

Vexing? Again: There were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Don't take it from me - take it from the guy who sold it to you: Colin Powell

" WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Secretary of State Colin Powell said Thursday his prewar speech to the United Nations accusing Iraq of harboring weapons of mass destruction was a "blot" on his record."

So let's all quit pretending that we are doing the Iraqis a favor by occupying their country and killing at least 100,000 to over 1.3 million of their people. Of course there is a battle over the figures - but even one unjust death is a tragedy. I haven't gotten into the depleted uranium contamination, or massive corruption. So when Biden gives his talk - it doesn't make much sense.

I'm glad Joe Biden is making himself useful - or trying to - but this presidency, like the last makes one wonder who the heck is in charge. Our president seems to be a toothless executor of commands from bankers, globalists and businessmen fiddling while Rome burns. On the other hand - the vice president, who has limited responsibilities assists the president in his mission as policeman of the world - the modern role of the vice president.

But Biden, like Obama is parroting the establishment rhetoric - that we're from the United States Government and we're here to help. One wonders if they are the only two idiots in the world that actually believe that? Perhaps an apology for marching in lockstep into two illegal wars and a withdrawal would help bring back some credibility to this government? Perhaps not - as the Pox News Public has been hopelessly propagandized into a trance that will take years to set straight. In other words, even if the Prez and VP wanted to come clean to the public - a large segment of that American public is psychologically incapable of absorbing the truth. But that's OK since there are no intentions toward honesty in American politics yet. Why?

One can only guess what the next radical moves of the neo-cons will be - don't think for a minute they've lost their power. As this administration is the flip side of the Bush globalist coin we can expect not honesty, but more faux news, bellicose rhetoric and imperialism. This brings us to Iran.

It is no secret the U.S. wants war with Iran. Recently a US Navy fleet was sent to the Persian Gulf to intimidate the Iranians. Although US government officials repeat over and over to the US public that Iran is enriching uranium to make nukes - there are equally credible reports to refute. So how can the lay person determine who is telling the truth?

Take a look at the propaganda. The saber-rattling and the evidence publicly available - it is almost an exact match of the techniques used in the run-up to the Iraq (with a Q) war. Yes - that's the Iraq we invaded based on false information as mentioned above. Is it possible that we are being fed even more fake information simply to set the stage for the demonization of the Iranians that is necessary to focus the latest hate-rage of the Americans their way? Perhaps a look at not-to-distant history will allow the reader to, at the least, take such diabolical acts of their own government officials into consideration.

Perhaps it would be wise to remember the clues Seymour Hersh provided some time ago regarding ways America may provoke war with Iran so as to bring about Iranian behavioral change:

" Speaking at the Campus Progress journalism conference earlier this month, Seymour Hersh — a Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist for The New Yorker — revealed that Bush administration officials held a meeting recently in the Vice President’s office to discuss ways to provoke a war with Iran.
... HERSH: There was a dozen ideas proffered about how to trigger a war. The one that interested me the most was why don’t we build — we in our shipyard — build four or five boats that look like Iranian PT boats. Put Navy seals on them with a lot of arms. And next time one of our boats goes to the Straits of Hormuz, start a shoot-up."


Before America commits to yet another war of aggression against a nation that has not attacked us we should remember the past so as not to repeat those mistakes and crimes again.

The US Federal government has lost all credibility regarding foreign policy as the chasm between words and deeds continues to gape. The government uses false-flag attacks to foment wars so as to stampede the public under emergency circumstances into catastrophe after debacle. Human suffering, property damage and criminal waste of our natural environment result with no benefit to populations anywhere. Is that not reason enough to pause and ask - Who, what, when, where, why - how will we pay for more killing, and where is the evidence?

If there are truly weapons in Iran - show the evidence to the American people. Put the pictures up on Google Earth and let us determine if we should believe what we see. After all JFK was able to show pictures of missiles during the Cuban missile crisis. Where is our magnificent scientific technology today that is supposed to be our holy saviour? Let's put that technology we keep hearing about to work for the people - then perhaps we can get past the politics, lies, and profiteering.

Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.
