: Iraq: the Final Storm
: by Ron Jacobs
: "I will reserve whatever options I have. I'll keep them close to my vest. Saddam Hussein needs to understand that I'm serious about defending our country."
*****Same old trick the Brits used...the Israelis use now...great company for the US. You break into someone``s house...steal and rape...then you "defend" yourself from aggression.
***The United States, like Britain before it, went robbing and stealing in the MidEast...until the natives got resentful and struck back...now they come telling us they are "defending" America by bombing villages 10,000 miles away just because the people no longer are willing to be stepped on.
***The MidEast was doing well enough before the US masterminded the Mullah``s Revolution, then pitted Iraq against Iran, supplying both and reducing them both to backwaters they could then play with at will.
***Same in Israel. Those are Europeans, with all the prejudice and visciousness of Europeans running the show in Israel...not Jews of the MidEast. If Israeli society once had no one else to blame, their own internal discord would rip the country apart. And if not for some cooperative Muslims where would this Shrub be now...and all of his Businesscrook cronies?
Gee...you don``t suppose American industrialists and politicians would declare war on their own people...you know, the ones they love so much they encourage them to invest their retirement savings in an Enron knowing damn well it will be broke in a week...and they``ll get latest bit of cash to come in? Do you think they would do THAT?
***How profitable Patriotism can be...for some.
