“Iraq was yesterday's war. Afghanistan is today's war. If we don't act pre-emptively, Yemen will be tomorrow's war"
Yes folks, Smokin’ Joe Lieberman is on the warpath yet again. Like all the rest of the Vietnam-dodging chicken hawks he’s always full of fight. Providing he or his aren't doing the fighting.
The minute I read of the Nigerian Islamic plane burning incident I knew that the US ‘defence’ industry would see an opportunity. Not an opportunity to do anything about the real dangers of course, but an opportunity to launch another war that will use lots and lots of weapons and provide lots and lots of business for the Blackwaters and Halliburtons of this world.
Just what the US needs.... heading towards bankruptcy, embroiled in two unwinnable wars and an earlier humiliating in Somalia – all enthusiastically supported by Joe. But then – to me at least - US needs aren't paramount in his mind. He, with his dual American/Israeli citizenship, holds the unique position of being in effect Likud’s ambassador to the US while heading the Senate Committee on Homeland Security. ..
How daft does it get?
Fact is, America is bleeding blood and treasure, as it always has done, to fight Israel’s enemies in the Middle East. Don’t forget that Lieberman is also an enthusiastic supporter of using American men and money to attack Iran as well.
Lieberman is the best politician that money can buy. He’s paid his dues by emasculating the health bill (no bad thing in itself, pity about the motivation) at the behest of his (and his wife’s) paymasters in the health industry. And now he’s taking his marching orders from his political masters in Tel Aviv.
He’s laughing all the way to the bank.
He doesn’t worry. And he’s right. It’s probable that the American sheeple can be bamboozledyet again by the MSM into flying the flag and supporting this war, just like they were on all the others.
I'm convinced that in a hundred years time – if the Neocons’ wars haven’t finished us all of by then, that historians will look back and ask, in total bewilderment, how did the American people allow themselves to be so blatantly manipulated to enthusiastically participate in their own demise?
An afterthought: If the chickenhawk Neocons really want to fuck up Yemen, why don’t they deport all their Wall St. paymasters there? If they did a tenth of the damage they’ve done to the US they’d be better than a hundred conventional armies.
