Bush's Iran-Friendly Policy
   by Ivan Eland

Bush remains convinced that the broad application of violence -- both by U.S. forces and
the Israeli army -- is the way to shatter the old Middle East and create a new Middle East
that will be more compliant to the interests of Washington and Tel Aviv.

To use the metaphor favored by Condi Rice -- that the ongoing slaughters are "birth pangs"
-- the Bush policy amounts to a forced Caesarian section carried out by deranged doctors
who have strapped the mother to the operating table. Even the supposed higher principle of
"democracy" is being sacrificed in the cause of these overlapping, purifying wars.

But beyond the questions of morality and war crimes, there is also the issue of practicality:
Does this brutal strategy have even the slightest prospect of success? In this guest essay,
Ivan Eland examines whether Iran will end up being the ultimate beneficiary of Bush's
Middle East adventures:

Reminder: The Bush Family Evil Empire has a history of making secret, illegal deals
with Iran and Hezbollah (not to mention Saddam) when there's a profit to be made.

Ahmahanjob: Destroy Israel, end crisis


Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmahanjob said Thursday the solution to the Middle East crisis
is to destroy Israel.   "Although the main solution is for the elimination of the Zionist regime,
at this stage an immediate cease-fire must be implemented," he said.

Ahmahanjob said the Middle East would be better off "without the Zionist regime."
Israel "is an illegitimate regime, there is no legal basis for its existence," he said.

"This guy is crazy!!

Diffhanjob: Sanctions to send oil to $200


Iran's Foreign Relations Vice Minister Manuchehr Mohanjob said, "The first consequence
of these sanctions would be an increase in the price of oil to around $200 per barrel."

The statement comes after the UN demanded that Iran suspend all nuclear development
within a month or face sanctions. Iran responded with, "Screw you - Bomb us if you want."

"$200 oil?  Yes!!!!

Subject:  Angry, sad and sickened


There are 500,000 refugees in Lebanon, most of them innocent women
and children who are being shreded with our Daisy Cutters. There are
500,000 innocent Israelis living in shelters. There are over 100,000 innocent
dead Iraqis, with their cradle of civilization decimated by the Neo-Con Nuts
who are screaming for More! More! More!

Who do they work for? Oil's $75.00 a barrel, profits have never been higher.
The more they fight, the more the potentates in Tehran, Riyadh, and Houston stuff
their pockets with billions. Why do you think Reagan-Bush I armed both sides
of the Iraq-Iran War?  Who won the Gulf War? Try Enron and Halliburton.


The "Band of Brothers" Unravels

"We were told that everybody on this island was hostile," Clagett said.
"They were al Qaeda insurgents, and we're going to kill all military-aged males,
  so be prepared."

Nightline: So you were told specifically to kill all military-age males?

Clagett: Correct.

Nightline: Were you ever told on any other mission that you were to kill
                all military-age males? Did that ever happen prior to this event?

Clagett: No.

Nightline: Never?

Clagett: Never.



Jeeze Bart what a difference a couple of months makes.

I have taken a well earned vacation from the media for a while, and decided to check in with you
to learn your take on the debacle that is Israeli foreign policy. To be chastising innocent civilians
who have lost their lives because they didn't possess the common sense to move away from the
so called "buffer zone", is to at some level sanction this violence which the American government
condones through inaction, and abets through giving the Israelis' arms.

Perhaps you misunderstood.

People are loath to leave their property and personal effects in favor of refugee status.
Secondly, you assume much when you just assume that the targeted homes are near the site
of missile attacks, and you assume even more when you suggest that the (dead) owners of
these bombed out houses, allowed the freedom fighters to launch the missiles in the first place.

As we could see from bombing raids in Iraq, the so called "smart bombs" found their way
to the market district, and residential neighborhoods with no apparent ties to the insurgency.
To think the Israeli government is above <snipage>

In short, your logic has many holes in it.

Could you point out a few of those many holes?
I've become accustomed to being the only guy on one side of an argument,
but I fail to see how leaving a place that's about to be bombed is debate-worthy.

To in any small way legitimize the "eye for an eye" type of politics coming out of Tel Aviv,
is below you, plus it is sooo Old Testament.

Ansel, why not take what I said at face value?  What I said was this:
> Trust me, if a missle launcher pulls up next to Casa de Bart,
> I'm not going to stand around and engage somebody in vigorous debate.
> I'm getting 500 yards away from my damn house as fast as I can.

People who are loathe to leave their about-to-be-destroyed property get killed.
I'm against that.
There's a time to engage in vigorous debate and there's a time to run like hell.

BTW, love your Yosemite work.

GOP Funded Green Party in PA
 Nader and GOP cozier than Jomentum?

OK, we've done it. We've nailed it down: Every single contributor to the Pennsylvania
Green Party Senate candidate is actually a conservative -- except for the candidate himself.

The Luzerne County Green Party raised $66,000 in the month of June in order to fund a
voter signature drive. The Philly Inquirer reported yesterday that $40,000 came from
supporters of Rick Santorum's campaign (or their housemates). Also yesterday, we confirmed
that another $15,000 came from GOP donors and conservatives. Only three contributions,
totaling $11,000, remained as possible legit donations.

Today, I confirmed that those came from GOP sources.

Subject: correction

Dear Bart:

Specter was not on the Warren Commission.  He was part of the Commission's staff.
He himself invented the single bullet theory.  Without it, conspiracy was the only possible
explanation for the bullet wounds the Commission could not ignore.

Before his work for the Warren Commission, Specter was a Democratic prosecutor
from Philadelphia.  Afterwards, he became a Republican Senator from Pennsylvania.
While this may seem like a large and unusual promotion,  you should see the one
Gerald Ford got for going along with Specter's theory.

Subject: yesterday's Fisk interview

I listened to Fisk's entire interview, and have never disagreed with your comments more.

You can't mean that.
I suggest people walk away when a bomb is guaranteed to go off very soon.
How do you disagree with that?

Expecting poor civilians in a war zone to be able to safely evacuate is like blaming
the dead in New Orleans for not owning cars to drive to higher ground.

I'm not sure you're thinking clearly.
Bombs delivered from Israel are 1,000 times smaller than Katrina.
Getting a block away would save lives.

Did you forget that Israel wiped out a caravan of civilians
who fled the border after heeding Israeli calls to evacuate?

Even if that happened, it's no excuse to sit down and wait for a bomb to arrive.
How can you disagree with that?

Fisk has lived in Beirut for 30 years and witnessed enough carnage for anyone.
We are all armchair commentators compared to him.

Fine, but Fisk's reports are tainted by his bias.
He might be 100% right, but he sees things Mel's way.

Are you happy that Hillary Clinton is the biggest recipient of AIPAC money
in Congress and that Rupert Murdock is hosting fundraisers for her?
 Tim W

I doubt anyone can win the White House without being a friend to Israel.
Betting on her is a smart move - she's going to be president.
I think it's funny that she's taking Murdoch's money.
Murdoch's no match for her & Bill.

What global warming?

Tuesday, House Majority Ass Roy Blunt (R-MO) said that if he remains in power after the
November elections, there will be no action on global warming for the entire 110th Congress:

Continued Republican House and Senate majorities would likely mean more of the same on climate.
"I think the information is not adequate yet for us to do anything meaningful," he said.

Actually, thousands of scientists have agreed that global warming is real, humans are responsible
for much of it and, unless steps are taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, there will be
extremely serious consequences.

For all we know, we're already past the point of no return on the environment.
No matter how hot it gets, no matter how much more powerful the hurricanes are,
the GOP will block solutions to this problem because they like their profits.


Subject: Israel

If Israel doesn't respect Lebanon's right to exist then how can
Israel expect the rest of the world to recognize its right to exist?

If you can't play nice with your neighbors then you might

Au Revoir, Freedom Fries

When Congress renamed French fries "freedom fries" before the Iraq war, House  Cafe Manager 
Bob Ney, said the change registered "the strong displeasure of many on Capitol Hill with the actions 
of our so-called ally, France." In the real world, it mainly allowed people to register their strong 
displeasure at how juvenile Congress was being. 

Now, Congress has quietly changed the name back.  "Freedom fries," like the "mission accomplished" 
banner that Bush cock-walked before, is now a stale relic of a naïve time, when the war-lovers were 
convinced that Iraqis would be free right after they finished greeting their liberators with rose petals.


Subject: extra-stupid questions

This will be my last visit to your site.

You're lying to yourself.
You'll come back again tomorrow, and the next day.

You must be a pussy if all you will do is "run", when you and your family
have been brutilized by over 20 years of viscious, hostile occupation.

When a Hezbollah rocket launcher pulls up next to your home,
you can "run" or you can die.  I'm glad you're not my father.

Tell me - if you were in the WTC the morning of 9-11-01 and got
notice it was about to crumble, would you be a pussy and leave?

Run away, you Red Coat pussy.
You are now reminding me of bush, cheney, et al.

buh bye, Coward.

Yeah, ask around - I'm a Bush-Cheney clone.

Just guessing, (because your argument consists of name-calling only), but would you
"stand up" to the incoming rockets and be the victim for the news that night?
Or would you engage the incoming missle in vigorous debate?

What is a Lebanese family supposed to do when the rocket launcher prepares to
kick the hornet's nest? Scream insults at anyone who offers tips for survival?

See you tomorrow ...and thanks for making me look smart.
It's not an easy thing to do.


 Iraq pumps 2,000,000 barrels a day,
(and that was before the 2003 Halliburton Upgrade)
 times today's oil price which is going to $100 a barrel
makes $200,000,000 Bush will steal every day.

You heard it here first.
Oil is going to $100 a barrel, then to $200

No wonder they were so eager to start a war

Bush's "Bring 'em on" death taunt is up to...

2580....2586 American victims

Bush's greed destroyed 
six more families 
since last issue.


By Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Bush will have killed
more Americans than his old partner Osama.

Subject: France

Dear Bart,

I see France as America's older brother, who smacks upside the head when we try to do
something stupid, as in the invasion of Iraq.  Let us not forget that France helped us gain our
independence from Britain, and we likely would not have won that war without their help.

US Commander: Civil war?
 Slowly, they begin to admit the obvious


Sectarian violence has reached its highest level yet in Iraq, and the country could
slide into civil war if Iraqis do not take decisive action to stop it, says Bush's top commander.

Gee, could the sun also rise in the East tomorrow?

General John Abizaid offered the bleak assessment in a stormy Senate hearing on Iraq that saw
Democrats attacking Rumsfeld for the course of the war and declining military readiness.

"I have never painted a rosy picture," Rumsfeld protested after she accused him of engaging in
"happy talk and rosy scenarios."  "Because of the administration's strategic blunders and, frankly,
the record of incompetence in executing, you are presiding over a failed policy," she said.


Subject: burn in hell

Flash Bart!

All Christians believe Most Jews (except for a few Jesus saves) will burn in hell.

Did they change that?
When I was an obedient lil' altar boy, the rule was:
"If you believe in the wrong (non-Catholic) religion, God will understand
  and he'll give you a pass to Heaven because you were ignorant, not evil."

That was one of the few things they said that made sense.

So we're back to - Why would God create a race of people
that he could torture for all eternity with no end - ever?

The fundies are all for kill em all. The Muslims and Jews. They call for nuking Iran.
So who are the ones who want to kill for their faith?

ha ha
You can't trick me!
They all do!

Frank said it best:
It says in the book:
"Burn 'n destroy...
'N repent, 'n redeem
'N revenge, 'n deploy
'N rumble thee forth
To the land of the unbelieving scum on the other side
'Cause they don't go for what's in the book
'N that makes 'em BAD
So verily we must choppeth them up
And stompeth them down

See why Muslims have something to fear? Get a grip man!

Did *I* say Muslims had nothing to fear from America's Murder Monkey?
Wish I had a dollar for every time I was misquoted.


Bush and Torture

Retired Navy pilot Mike Cronin knows enough about torture to know it doesn't work.
After being shot down over North Vietnam in 1967, he spent six years enduring interrogations
in the Hanoi Hilton, the notorious holding block for American prisoners of war. His neck and
ankles were bound together with rope, causing him to lose consciousness. The nerves and bones
in his wrists were crushed. His shoulder was ripped out of its socket. He was forced to talk,
but he never gave the North Vietnamese the information they wanted.

"I told lies," explained Cronin, 65, in a telephone interview.
"When you put people in that position, the information you get is not reliable."


Subject: Robert Fisk on the Bombing of Qana


Or are you perhaps saying that the rules that apply (or are supposed to apply) 

to the armies of the US, UK, France etc need not apply to Israel ? 

One of us can't think straight due to temporary insanity.
For some reason, when I say "Move away from the incoming bombs," 
people write and ask when I'm going to stop sucking Israel's ass.

Why can't "move away from the bombs" just be "move away from the bombs?"

When cowards attack
   by Smoking Joe Conason

For a political operative of such skill and smarts, Karl Rove is surprisingly predictable. 
Since Rove entered the White House and took control of the Republican Party, there are 
two things he has done in every election. He goes directly after his adversary's greatest 
perceived strength -- and he reveals his game plan in advance. As this year's midterm 
elections approach, threatening his party's majority in both houses and possibly leaving 
his boss the lamest of ducks, Rove remains on the same course he charted last winter. 
Indeed, he announced his plan of attack in January, when he told the Republican National
Committee that the "failed resolve" of Democrats who seek to withdraw from Iraq is 
"worthy of public debate," and vowed that "this president and this party" would not 
allow America to 'retreat before victory.'


Thanks to Cosmic Debris for enduring the heat.

Subject: your ME peace plan

The documentary record shows deliberate Israeli attacks on strictly civilian targets. 
This is beyond reasonable dispute. It is also beyond dispute that the Israelis are <snippage>

With whom are you arguing?

Your charmingly naive directness in deigning to "assign blame" between aggressor and victim
simply fails to encompass a serious understanding of the context of this problem. 

With whom are you arguing?   My point is (if I'm allowed tp speak for myself) 
one needs to move away from areas about to explode. One knows when they see 
a Hezbollah rocket launcher that the area is about to explode. You can (and will) 
argue with that if you like, but the rocket will always win.

The context is American imperial ambitions and <snippage>

With whom are you arguing?

However, I do like your idea about moving Israel to Oklahoma. 

My solutions always make sense.

One proviso: you can have the okies, but the standard clauses must hold - we get to keep the oil 

How and why can I "have" the Okies?
Okies can have themselves - I only want one.

Shocked and horrified!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 Fundies faint when they see a breast


"Gross, I am sick of seeing a baby attached to a boob," the mother of a four-month-old said.
Another reader said she was "horrified" when she received the magazine and hoped that her 
husband hadn't laid eyes on it.

"I had to rip off the cover since I didn't want it laying around the house," she said.

Have you ever seen anything more shocking or horrifying?

They can't stand to look at a baby and his mother,
but they "stay the course" on the truly shocking and horrifying:
