Yes, it has been a long time since my last post here. Oh well, my blog, my schedule.
Well, that was supposed to be funny or at least sarcastic. See, I have no schedule, not for posting there nor for much of anything else. Being retired allows me that option.
No doubt readers of this infrequent blog know by now that the vile creature John Bolton has crawled out from under whatever rock he’d been hiding under the last few years. He got space in the New York Times for an “op-ed” telling us how we “need” to bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran. Yes, I know, shade of old McCrazy in 2008 when he and failin’ Pailin ran for POTUS/VPOTUS. No doubt you will recall old McCrazy butchering the “Beach Boys” song turning it into “bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran”. Yeah, well, guess what folks? Those days are NOT gone and buried. Nope, crazy Bolton has brought that crapola back onto the very pages of the “Newspaper of record” as the masthead of the NYT still proclaims. Some record! Good grief, that very “newspaper” still keeps little Tommy Friedman on as a columnist.
Bolton says “we” must bomb Iran so that country cannot get a nuclear bomb. I would think that a person who is supposedly employed at a think tank would have read the US intelligence reports that have clearly stated that Iran is not, and has not, been working towards developing any sort of nuclear weapon for some years now. He seems to gloss over the fact that Israel, the zionist entity, DOES have nuclear bombs. According to various sources, the entity has approximately 200+ nuclear weapons. Of course we don’t know the exact number as the entity will not allow any inspections of its nuclear facilities. And yet, the very same entity wants the US of A too bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.
Why does the entity want us to do this bombing? Well, because the supposed leaders of that outfit say that IF Iran got a nuclear weapon that Iran would USE it, probably against the entity itself. Also, IF Iran got a nuke, that would set off a new arms race in the Middle East. Really? Then why hasn’t the FACT that the entity has nukes set off a nuclear arms race already?
Well, excuse me, but I smell double standards here. And man, do they STINK to hell and back. Of course in my personal opinion ALL double standards stink to hell and gone, but that is just me. Others may disagree. Ah well, their choice. Actually, I would not want everybody to agree with me all the time. IF that ever happened, I promise you all, I would be bored to death. We can disagree on all sorts of things, the trick is to keep those disagreements civilized. If only the neo-cons, heavy emphasis on the “con” part, could understand this rather simple thing. Somehow, every time somebody does not agree with these neo-cons, it is suddenly time to bomb and kill those who do not agree with them. Well, that might not be too awful EXCEPT, except for this fact; these same war loving neo-cons never DO any actual fighting. Nope, just like their main hero Mr. 5 Deferments Cheney, they “allow” the working class and poor kids to have that “honor” of doing the dirty work. They just sit back and take the credit, IF the plans go off as they claim they will. Um, er, uh, remember Iraq? Remember how the likes of Cheney, Bolton, Wolfowitz, etc. told the country that the Iraq war was going to be a “cake walk”? Remember how these same neo-cons told the country our troops would be welcomed with flowers, as liberators? Yep, and just how did that shit work out? No, I have not forgotten the “surge” and the now disgraced General Delayus (yes I mis-spelled his name on purpose, sue me). Funny how the general seemed to “fail upwards” until he got busted for giving classified information to his mistress. And even then, he is still allowed to walk around free. Holy crap, they locked up poor Chelsea Manning for telling the truth, and yet this clown blabs to his mistress, he was still married (can you say conduct unbecoming? YES you CAN), and he is still a free person. Well, of course, double standards, again.
America, what a country.
Until next time, be good to each other.
