Netanyahu at the U.N. or – Monumental Warmongering Bullshit

For all those who may, despite Netanyahu’s compelling argument at the UN yesterday, feel themselves teetering on the brink of falling for the foul-smelling propaganda about Iran and its “nuclear threat” to the world, there are a few things I’d like you to consider.

In the last 6 years or so, there have been literally dozens of official reports and comments about Iran’s nuclear program, and virtually all of them have stated that there is no evidence that Iran is planning to develop a nuclear weapon. The International Atomic Energy Agency has repeatedly stated that there is no evidence that Iran has diverted uranium to a weapons program. In addition, the true power in Iran, the Ayatollah Khamenei, issued a Fatwa against nuclear weapons in 2005.

What Iran is doing is attempting to achieve a ‘nuclear capability’ like nuclear power plants and Medical reactors etc. The problem for Israel (or so Netanyahu claims on behalf of all Israelis), is that once Iran achieves this ‘nuclear capability’ there is little to stop them from using that capability to ultimately produce a nuclear weapon, if they choose to do so.

Loony Toons Arrive In New York: Netanyahu’s Speech at the UN 2012

Well, what can I say. It was HI-LAIR-EE-OUS! The same tired old bullshit that a kindergartener could figure out, the “clash of civilizations” spiel, the encouragement to “be afraid, be VERY afraid”.

Here are a few choice quotes:

“Radical Islam wants to end the modern world”.

(For a bunch of CIA-funded mercenaries, that’s a pretty tall order).

Or how about this one:

“The future of the world is at stake. If you want to know what a nuclear armed Iran would be like, just imagine a nuclear armed al-qaeda.”

So eh, did I miss the news that ‘al-qaeda’ (the CIA’s database of mujahedin fighters) has now obtained a nation state of its own and successfully enriched enough uranium and acquired the parts to build a nuclear bomb? Wow, that afternoon nap I took was longer than I thought!

But my favorite part was Netanyahu’s cartoon bomb picture. This was a stroke of genius, after all, people love pictures, they convey the message so much better than boring old words and facts, and on that score, Bibi really needed a picture.

How did Netanyahu get hold of Iran’s bomb?

My sources have informed me that the diagram presented by Netanyahu was a modified version of an original, more accurate diagram. Here’s the original:

When this sucker blows, we’re all gonna be in deep doodoo. The bomb looks pretty nasty too.

Now I understand what Bibi is trying to do here, and I applaud him, but I can’t help think that he could have used an image from Iranian president Ahmadinejad’s speech at the UN one day previously. After all, it’s far more damning…

 

Now THAT’s a Bomb!

 

When I first saw Netanyahu’s diagram, I had a vague recollection of having seen something similar before. Then it hit me:

A Loony Toons representative’s speech to the UN a few years ago.

Being serious for a moment (I know it’s hard given Bibi’s farce); Bibi really shot himself in the foot with this one. Then again, that’s to be expected from a psychopath. Such deviant individuals generally end up over-extending themselves because they can’t fathom that there is a limit to the bullshit that ordinary people will believe.

Henry Kissinger, National Security Study Memorandum 200, Iraq and Afghanistan

National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests (NSSM200) was completed on December 10, 1974 by the United States National Security Council under the direction of Henry Kissinger.

The basic thesis of memorandum 200 was that population growth in the least developed countries (LDCs) is a concern to U.S. national security, because it would tend to risk civil unrest and political instability in countries that had a high potential for economic development. The policy gives “paramount importance” to population control measures and the promotion of contraception among 13 populous countries, to control rapid population growth which the US deems inimical to the socio-political and economic growth of these countries and to the national interests of the United States, since the “U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad“, and these countries can produce destabilizing opposition forces against the United States. It recommends the US leadership to “influence national leaders” and that “improved world-wide support for population-related efforts should be sought through increased emphasis on mass media and other population education and motivation programs by the U.N., USIA, and USAID.

This memorandum became the core of US ‘foreign policy’ for the next 38 years, and it continues today.

This memorandum explains the Viet Nam ‘war’, the US invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, the ongoing US imperial rampage throughout the Middle East, and, by implication, the 9/11 attacks as an inside job to provide justification for all of the above.

Note: the “U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad.

Now consider this:

‘Killing His Own People’

“Killing your own people” – a good strategy in the face of foreign invasions (if you’re an imbecile)

In case you haven’t noticed, Western governments have never shown much creativity when trying to find an excuse to wage a war against another nation. Usually, they just rely on the gullibility of the masses of people and on the mainstream media to repeatedly spread the lie. On several occasions, such a the Gulf of Tonkin incident, their creativity has extended to attacking themselves (or claiming they have been attacked).

In recent years, as the US political and military juggernaut has grown more desperate in its search for new foreign resources to prop up the failing empire, the causus belli has been reduced to the puerile claim that such and such a leader is “killing his own people”. But the plausibility of this claim, in terms of the leaders against whom it has been used, and the context in which it has been used, rests on a belief that is entirely implausible. Read more »

Muslims Don’t Need a Badly Made Film Mocking Mohammed to be Incensed at the USA

A US flag burning at the US embassy in Jordan. One of many such demonstrations that have taken place across the Middle East on many occasions over the past 40 years.

Western governments and the Western media would love for the entire world to believe that the recent (and ongoing) attacks on US embassies in the Middle East, and the killing of the US ambassador and 3 CIA agents in Libya, are motivated solely by the publication of a poorly made ‘film’ that had been doctored to ‘insult’ Islam and Mohammed. This narrative pitches Muslims in general as simple-minded fanatical barbarians, ungrateful for all that Western governments have done for them, and attempts to convince the average Westerner that the only thing Muslims understand is force.

American Ambassador To Libya Reaps What His Masters Sowed

US ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, in the hands of Libyans who are not paid by the CIA.

As the US envoy to the “Libyan opposition” during the Libyan “revolution”, former US ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, oversaw the dismemberment of the prosperous and developed Libyan society that existed  under Gaddafi. Stevens’ masters in Washington and Langley, Virginia, were the main financiers of the “Libyan opposition”, a gang of paid mercenaries from other African nations. When the Libyan army was eventually defeated by these mercenaries, with the help of 11 months of NATO bombing of all major Libyan cities (and the murder of 40,000 Libyan civilians) Chris Stevens and his friends installed a select few of these mercenaries as the new Libyan government. Despite these facts, the US government, and that foul witch Hilary Clinton, have the effrontery to be surprised and “appalled” that Stevens and a few CIA agents were killed by Libyans angry at the destruction of their once proud nation.

Go figure.

One result of the 11 month NATO bombing of Libya was thousands of former Libyan army soldiers with no job and a serious grudge against the USA. So let’s get real here, which is more likely: that the attack on the US embassy in Libya was the work of Libyans incensed at a badly dubbed, US-made film that mocks Islam, or that it was a well-planned act of revenge by former members of the Libyan army (specifically the ‘Khamis Brigade) against the representative of the country that led an attack that killed 40,000 Libyan civilians and soldiers, and installed a pro-Western government that is entirely unrepresentative of the Libya people.

There was also a bit of a to-do over the following statement issued by the US embassy in Cairo, which was also the scene of protests over the last two days:

“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions,” the statement said, apparently in response to a vitriolic video mocking Islam that was promoted by anti-Muslim Florida pastor Terry Jones. “Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”

Apparently, some American senators and congress…eh… people, view the Cairo embassy statement as an apology to the protestors. If it WERE that, I’d applaud it, but what it clearly is, is the words of a group of Americans in the embassy in Cairo who were freaking out and willing to do or say anything to make sure they got to see their families again.

Religions – Mainstream Vs New Age

Mainstream religions’ like Christianity, Judaism and Islam offered a path to spirituality (and therefore human evolution) that required the subservience of human potential to an unknowable ‘higher power’ and the belief that we are ‘sinners’.

Then ‘New Age religions’ came along, and, as a reaction to mainstream religions, offered the opposite: a spirituality that is free from dogma (anything goes) and everyone can be as powerful as they wish, as long as they first believe they can. No more paying for your sins and kowtowing to religious authority, now you can just step into your inherent spirituality, your innate divinity, and it’s a done deal!

Both approaches are oversimplified extremes with a seeds of truth. The truth about human beings and any spiritual path or evolution open to them is far more depressing, which is probably why so many people don’t notice it or don’t want it.

For the mainstream adherents: There is a higher power, but it doesn’t care about you. There is a “heaven” but you ain’t getting there on blind belief in fiction and feeling holy through self-righteousness and periodic flagellation.

For the New Agers: You can discover your “innate divinity”, but first you have to spend a few lifetimes getting to grips with just how unspiritual you, as an average human being, are and how little you actually know about anything.

Before there can be any human evolution, both (which by now means just about everyone) have to first wake up to the fact that the human race, individually and collectively, is probably the most ignorant, selfish, arrogant, childish, immoral, conscienceless group of semi-sentient beings in the entire Milky Way. Evidence? The words ‘Milky Way’ made about 90% of people who read this think of the candy bar!
