Descent into Madness

11 Jun

Neoconservatives have agitated for bombing Iran because – well, that Ahmadinejad guy is crazy and hates Jews and denies the Holocaust! They want the US to bomb Iran back into the stone age and they want it done yesterday.

(At least Ahmadinejad didn’t open fire inside the Holocaust Museum.)

But Iran is holding an election Friday, and it’s quite probable that the insane jerk Ahmadinejad may lose.

The neocons who told us how awful and dangerous Ahmadinejad is are sad that he may lose.

From TPM Cafe:

At this point no one knows what will happen on Friday. But one thing that becomes clear as the neocons pray for an Ahmadinejad victory: there is no limit to what these people will support or endorse in order to achieve their goal of a civilizational war with Muslims, absolutely nothing. Don’t think they are motivated by love of Israel (which is obviously better off with Ahmadinejad gone). They are motivated solely by hatred of Muslims.

After all, imbecilic idioservatives like Debbie Schlussel blame yesterday’s Holocaust Museum shooting by a Nazi and anti-Semite on, naturally, Islam.

How about this. How about everybody stop shooting or bombing other people because they don’t like the man in the sky the other guy believes in?

I hope Iran elects someone who seeks rapprochement with the rest of the world, is willing to recognize Israel’s right to exist, is willing to withhold support of terrorist organizations like Hezbollah, and otherwise paves the way for Iran’s return to normalcy. That’s what I hope for.

Unlikely, but that’s how I roll.

    Does this go along with the right wing hope for the failure of our president.

    He’s failing way too good on his own—needs no help from anyone.

    I remember this voice coming from the TV that said

    “IF WE DON’T PASS THIS STIMULUS BILL RIGHT NOW, UNEMPLOYMENT WILL RISE OVER 8 PERCENT”

    Well, it passed, and now unemployment is at 9.4%

    Epic Fail.

    Iranians realize that letting I’m a Dinner Jacket continue in power will likely result in pre-emptive nuclear strikes by Israel.

    BP—the last time you believed in hope we got a President whose policies have helped over 2 million more Americans lose their jobs. Let’s try to find an alternative to that kind of hope.

    Conservatives sure are stupid.

    Our President has decreed the right of Iran to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes (electric power–although what they need nukes for is unfathomable, given the cost of oil there).

    Too bad he does not advocate the same right for the United States, eh?
