Whose Benefit? …

… let’s “cut through the proverbial crap

Very interesting article in Payvand: Attack on Iran for whose benefit, may we dare ask? by Kam Zarabi

“… It is time to cut through the proverbial crap.

Let’s not kid ourselves. The movers and shakers in Washington were not misled by faulty intelligence to start the invasion of the Middle East, and are not pushing forward under some other mistaken guidelines. The Israeli Likud leadership is not driven by a genuine fear or paranoia that the Jewish nation is under an existential threat by Iran. And finally, the Iranian regime does not consist of a bunch of fanatic, suicidal maniacs who’d sacrifice their own lives and their country’s very existence for some archaic ideological ambitions.

No, the intelligence was not faulty … read more

    It is SIGNIFICANT that Ahmadinejad didn’t rant about his yello cake today–anniversary of revolution victory, as was highly anticipated! He is contained.


    Now I am only crossing my fingers that the voices of reason, logic, wisdom, humanity, accounting, congress, military, media, average peace lovin’ American will contain Cheney’s influence on Bush too!

    I’m of two minds about Ahmadinejad. On the one hand it’s nice to see everyone stand up to the United States who has the means. On the other hand, the risks seem to outweigh the benefits of playing too near the brink. The cost is too high in human lives and generations to come who revenge an unprovoked attack on Iran. Iran has the high moral ground at the moment. The U.S. has no credibility in most of the world and there’s no reason to believe anyone will ever believe anything the United States says ever again. But this administration is insane. If Admadinejad thinks he can gamble with people’s lives, then he is insane too. It’s one thing to say the truth and not be intimidated. It’s another thing to claim the role of God in seeking justice.

    All Iran has to do is continue to refute the daily load of lies that the American media deliver. No one pays any attention to the main stream media anyway. But Iran should be doing everything it can to prove that Bush / Cheney are liars using the media. The whole world is listening.

    Thank you Mattati! for your visit and your link. I like your blog, and I enjoy reading it.
    I am not very happy with this “Forever under construction”. I didn’t think much when I registered the blog, so you can call me whatever you like.
    In a way, this is sort of symbolic too. I am stuck with whatever I have… and it doesn’t matter… much … really … whatever 🙂

    Mattati: I don’t know how to post a comment on your blog!

    Serv: I agree with you, 100%
    Is there a place … called …..finger crossed, something-istan?
