Nuclear War Drums

So the war drums are a’beatin’ – this time it’s against Iran. I’ve been hearing talk about this for a while, but dismissed it as simply “focus group” testing for the propaganda machine. You know…the Bush Regime putting out feelers to see if the public is gullible enough to buy another pack of lies, distortions, and fear-tactics to go to war again. But, as it seems to keep popping up these days, I guess I should talk about it.

For one, can you blame Bush for needing a distraction on his failed war on Iraq? (Which, in turn was a distraction from his failed war to catch bin Laden…) Bush worshippers everywhere will point out that Clinton bombed an aspirin factory in the Sudan to distract from the Monica Lewinsky scandal, so that automatically makes it ok for Bush to do the same thing when he needs a little "quick! look over there!" (Apparently, Conservatives forget that they marketed their guy as the anti-Clinton, who was supposed to be better than our former Chief Executive…. Liberals, on the other hand, have probably, and conveniently, forgotten all about Clinton’s misdeeds, and how they have set a precendent for justification of the current Warmonging White House…)

Personally, what I get tired of is being spoon fed the Hitler comparisons. First, Saddam was “Islam’s Hitler”, and his party compared to the Nazis but Bush Sr. Now, Bush, Jr. is throwing around similar comparisons about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

But the most startling aspect of all, is that this president is willing to use nuclear – nuclear! – weapons to accomplish his Utopian goals. For all the talk about Hussein having WMDs, and being a threat against his neighbors, and what is the Bush regime doing? Contemplating the use of WMDs and issuing threats against nations that aren’t even close to being our neighbors.

It must be a wonderful thing to be a Conservative. Kind of like dementia can be enjoyable.
