On May 15, the White House Moron, in a war-planning visit to Israel, justified the naked aggression he and Olmert are planning against Iran as the only alternative to the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.
But the White House Moron has the roles reversed. It is not Iran that is threatening war. It is Bush. It is not Bush who is appeasing. It is Iran.
Iran has not responded in kind to any of Bushs warlike moves and provocations. Iran has not sunk a single one of our sitting duck ships and has not given the Iraqi insurgents any weapons that would easily turn the tide of war against the US.
It is Bush, not Iran, who sounds like Adolf Hitler blustering and threatening. It is Bushs American Brownshirts, the neocons, who express the view: whats the good of nuclear weapons if you cant use them...
Commentary by ‘the European Saker’:
Reading this abject nonsense makes me wonder which is the superpower and who is the obsequious servant in this relationship. No doubt, Dubya himself has absolutely no idea how this kind of speech will be received in the rest of the Middle-East, but his Neocon puppeteers do. This is not some kind of diplomatic ‘faux pas’, some redneck idiot from Texas (which he is not, but nevermind) spewing off some ‘cowboy talk’. This is a carefully written speech whose message to the Israeli is simple: "we will stop at nothing to obey and please you". But even more importantly this speech is directed at the rest of the world and its messages is equally simple: Fuck you!
We don’t care about international law, we don’t care about human rights, we don’t care about decency, we don’t care about your suffering or your outrage, and as a matter of fact, we don’t care about you either. To all those who would want to see the USA as an honest broker, as a impartial negotiator or even just a neutral party we say: Fuck you!
To Hamas, Iran and Hezbollah the message is also clear: you will not prevail against the 307 million "Israelis" which oppose you. Just like the Borg in Star Trek, the USraelian Empire always repeats the same ultimatum: "Resistance is futile, you shall be assimilated".
Dubya could have somehow modified his Borg like message and say "Resistance is futile, you shall be assimilated, just like we have been".
Looking at the abject and total assimilation of the USA into Israel, Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran will not at all get discouraged, but in the countrary will be energized by the vital need to prevent a similarly sad fate to befall them and their people. In that sense, Dubya’s speech is most useful at this time in the Middle-East’s history: by showing the wretched condition which those who have been assimilated by the Empire are reduced to, Dubya’s speech provides the most vivid illustration possible of the fact that resistance is life and life is resistance.
The irony of George W. Bush going before the Knesset and mocking the late Sen. William Borah for expressing surprise at Adolf Hitlers 1939 invasion of Poland is that Bushs own family played a much bigger role assisting the Nazis…
