The Economic Crisis defined by the neocons, isn’t the fact that folks are losing their homes/jobs/retirements, etc. No, Economic Crisis for the neocons is the fact that folks are finally waking up to the fact that our country has been robbed blind and these sleepy folks may soon be seeking justice and/or blood.
The Political Crisis defined by the neocons isn’t the fact that our politicians and government have been bought by corporations and are corrupt to the core. No, Political crisis for the neocons is the fact that folks are finally waking up to the fact that our politicians and government agencies have been bought by corporations and are corrupt to the core.
Its a pickle for the neocons…..how can they continue with business as usual when so many folks are on to them.
The obvious answer is WAR.
War is the perfect solution, the ideal distraction, the ultimate insurance that the Powers That Be, remain in power and gain more power, even as the Masses finally wake up to the fact that greed and corruption have destroyed our country.
Have no doubt that WAR is seen as the solution to the rising problems faced by the dark forces that control our nation.
I can hear them now:
“No one would try to impeach a President when we are at war”
“It would be very unpopular to investigate our own government when we are fighting evil foreign governments”
“We have to focus on the enemy abroad not nit-picking at home”
“1000s of soldiers and civilians are dying we need to set our differences aside and focus on the real enemy of _______(Russia, Iran, Terrorists, Aliens).
Washington wants another war and they are dying to start it soon.
You may have a different idea about why they want another war, but have not doubt they will do all they can to get it, if they are not stopped.
What can we do to stop them?
Russia says that Georgia ‘s attack on the independence-seeking region of South Ossetia was likely executed with the United States ‘ approval.
“It is hard to imagine that (Georgian President Mikheil) Saakashvili embarked on this risky venture without some sort of approval from the side of the United States ,” Russian Ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, told Russia ‘s NTV television on Wednesday.
U.S. President George W. Bush on Wednesday expressed concern over Russia ‘s continued military action in Georgian territory, and said his administration would send humanitarian assistance to the embattled region.
Israel has also sent a shipment of humanitarian aid, in the first step of what it termed a broader aid effort. The aid, sent late Tuesday on a Georgian airline, consists of two respirators and seven EKG monitors.
In an official statement on Wednesday, Bush said that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would visit Tbilisi in a show of support for the Georgian government.
He also announced that a massive U.S. humanitarian effort was already in progress and would involve U.S. aircraft as well as naval forces.
A U.S. C-17 military cargo plane, loaded with supplies, already is on the way, and Bush said that Russia must ensure that all lines of communication and transport, including seaports, roads and airports, remain open to let deliveries and civilians through
The administration also will review what military help is needed for Georgia ‘s now-shattered armed forces, Whitman said.
Syrian sources told the daily that Damascus has taken several preventive measures against a possible Israeli strike. The sources added that the IDF drill in the north is increasing tensions in the region and is not in line with recent peace initiatives.
“The danger of these exercises is greater because they are being carried out near the cease-fire line bordering Syria ,” the sources were quoted as saying, “and because Defense Minister Ehud Barak and IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi supervised.”
Barak told IDF soldiers stationed in the Golan Heights on Tuesday that Israel is closely monitoring the strengthening of Lebanese militant organization Hezbollah.
Barak went on to criticize an expected cut to the Defense Ministry budget proposed by Finance Minister Roni Bar-On at part of the 2009 budget.
“We live in a country in which security is made up not only of tanks and planes, but also of the fostering of excellence, education and welfare. In a country like ours, we do not have the luxury to harm the defense budget,” Barak asserted.
Israel: Iran war not okayed by US

Israel’s defense minister says the regime has not received approval from the US to carry out a strike against Iran ‘s nuclear sites.
“The Americans are not ready to allow us to attack Iran ,” Ehud Barak told army radio on Wednesday.
“Our position is that no option is to be taken off the table but in the meantime we have to make diplomatic progress,” he added.
Israel , which is widely believed to have over 200 ready-to-use atomic warheads, says Iran ‘s nuclear program is a main strategic threat, although the UN nuclear watchdog has confirmed that Tehran ‘s uranium enrichment activities are within the limits of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
Barak’s comments follow reports about an armada of US naval battle groups heading toward the Persian Gulf with the aim of reinforcing US strike forces in the region.
The USS Theodore Roosevelt, the USS Ronald Reagan, and the USS Iwo Jima are sailing toward the Persian Gulf accompanied by the British Royal Navy aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal and the French nuclear hunter-killer submarine Ametlyste.
The deployment comes almost a week after Operation Brimstone, which was conducted by the US , British and French naval forces in the Atlantic Ocean . Apparently, the 12 warships taking part in the war games were preparing for a possible confrontation with Iran .
