Are They REALLY That Stupid?
One of the big historical questions of the Big Iraq Attack is now, and will remain: just how fucking stupid is George W. Bush?
Did he really not know perfectly well that Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction and that Saddam's Iraq had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11? (If indeed, any Muslim at all group did and 9/11 wasn't orchestrated by Israel to get the very results it did get?) Or was Bush simply too dumb or too drunk to question what Karl Rove and Richard Perle and Donald Rumsfeld and the other Jewish neocons whispered in his ear?
But what about Rove, and Rumsfeld, and Cheney, and Perle, and Kristol, and Feith, and Wolfowitz, and Bremer, and Ledeen, and Horowitz, and Dershowitz, and Netanyahu, and Robertson, and all of the other gang of neocon war criminals who have committed the crime against humanity that is Iraq?
Were they all really that fucking stupid as to believe the very same false intelligence reports which they themselves cooked up? (Okay, Condi Rice might have believed it. She comes across as being as dumb as a bag of hammers at the best of times. The nature of her true services to the President may be guessed. Granted, Clinton had Monica Lewinsky and others, but jeez, at least he never tried to make any of his mindless bimbi Secretary of State or Supreme Court Justice! But I digress. Where was I?)
No, I don't think the necocons are so stupid as to believe their own propaganda. I think there's a hidden agenda which explains the whole ghastly Iraq debacle in terms which are comprehensible. Amoral, evil, unspeakably cruel and heartless, but comprehensible.
Look at a map of the Middle East. Look at all the countries Iraq borders on: Iran, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, the volatile Kurdish country to the north. Not all, but a good number of the Middle East hot spots within striking distance, and most of the world's oil and natural gas, within spitting distance. Remember those four huge permanent bases that the United States military is building in Iraq?
Iraq is to become the "jewel in the crown" of the new United States of the World Oil Empire, with Israel as the ostensibly "junior" partner and nutcracker. I think the neocons were surprised and enraged at the stiff resistance the Iraqis have put up and continue to put up (Hadji Reb bagged another Imperial helicopter yesterday) and they genuinely thought it would all be over by now, with the Iraqis salaaming to their new Jewish and Southern Baptist masters and gabbling "Yes effendi, no effendi, three bags full effendi." That hasn't worked out, to be sure.
The purpose of the invasion of Iraq was simple: to seize a staging area for a troop buildup for the invasion of Iran. That's why those four permanent military bases are being built, and continue to be built full speed ahead despite the election results or any other attempt to restrain the drunken midget in the White House.
But now Jug is going to have to content himself with a mere aerial and naval bombardment of Iran. He's broken the toys Daddy left him, exhausted and demoralized and depleted the Army and Marines and worn out their equipment, squandered the Reserves and National Guard, lowered the recruiting standards so badly that America's crack combat troops are being replaced with 42 year-old men desperate for any job at all, and a bunch of black and brown crack addicts and criminals. All he can really do to Iran now is sling missiles and bombs, and maybe a few low level nukes. (He can't use full nukes because the Houston oil companies won't risk his contaminating the Iranian oil fields with radioactivity.)
Anybody out there a hunter? Then you know what happens when you wound an animal but don't finish him off. We see what happened in Iraq when we only wounded the wolf but didn't kill him. Now Jug is going after a full-grown tiger with bird shot, and all he's going to get is one pissed-off Persian tiger. A tiger that has its paws on the world's oil supply in the Strait of Hormuz.
Mother of God, why can't we seem to do anything about this moron and the Jews whispering in his ear?
