Evil is As Evil Does - Neo Cons Level Lebanon

It is important for people to understand that it is highly UNlikely the USA would be at war today if not for about twenty five people - all Neo Cons.

The Rolling Stone has an excellent article on the planning of the invasion of Lebanon by the Neo Cons.

Iran: The Next War

Even before the bombs fell on Baghdad, a group of senior Pentagon officials were plotting to invade another country. Their covert campaign once again relied on false intelligence and shady allies. But this time, the target was Iran. BY JAMES BAMFORD

How did the Bush administration sell the Iraq war? Check out our award-winning story on the PR machine for regime change in Iraq -- and join a reader debate: Is war with Iran unavoidable?


on the morning of February 12th, 2003, a small group of eavesdroppers were listening intently for evidence of a treacherous crime. At the very moment that American forces were massing for an invasion of Iraq, there were indications that a rogue group of senior Pentagon officials were already conspiring to push the United States into another war—this time with Iran.

Just two weeks before, in his State of the Union address, President Bush had begun laying the groundwork for the invasion, falsely claiming that Saddam Hussein had the means to produce tens of thousands of biological and chemical weapons, including anthrax, botulinum toxin, sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent. But an attack on Iraq would require something that alarmed Franklin and other neoconservatives almost as much as weapons of mass destruction: detente with Iran. As political columnist David Broder reported in The Washington Post, moderates in the Bush administration were "covertly negotiating for Iran to stay quiet and offer help to refugees when we go into Iraq."...

Over breakfast at the Ritz-Carlton, Franklin told the two lobbyists about a draft of a top-secret National Security Presidential Directive that dealt with U.S. policy on Iran. Crafted by Michael Rubin, the desk officer for Iraq and Iran in Feith's office, the document called, in essence, for regime change in Iran. In the Pentagon's view, according to one senior official there at the time, Iran was nothing but "a house of cards ready to be pushed over the precipice." So far, though, the White House had rejected the Pentagon's plan, favoring the State Department's more moderate position of diplomacy. Now, unwilling to play by the rules any longer, Franklin was taking the extraordinary—and illegal—step of passing on highly classified information to lobbyists for a foreign state. Unable to win the internal battle over Iran being waged within the administration, a member of Feith's secret unit in the Pentagon was effectively resorting to treason, recruiting AIPAC to use its enormous influence to pressure the president into adopting the draft directive and wage war against Iran.

We need not lull ourselves into any sense of security in Canada or Australia where we too are currently UNDER Prime Ministers who are BOTH Neo Cons. Harper in fact calls this sorry sordid lot his, "shining light."

I remember a German man who returned from the Nazi slave camps and when discussing the Neo Cons of their time, he said, "these Nazis are not Germans, they are psychopaths, killers, murderers, but they do not represent MY country." Here we are in the macabre situation where we have a president whose family funded the holocaust, and who in fact start a war everytime one is in office. Odd how that works. It is also odd that in a country of over 250 million people, the same unelected cretins (Rumsfeld, Cheney, Powell, Bush) show up.

This is partly due to the simple nature of a single instrument, but the gentle tone of the piano itself also contributes to this phenomenon. Also, a high level of confidence and accomplishment can be achieved by caring for and owning an animal, no matter what type and size the animal is.
