From: Bomb Blasts Overshadow Biden Speech In Iraq
I guess the Iraqis have run out of roses to throw at their American "liberators."
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.
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:
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.
