Iran's Hezbollah: Tipping Its Hand

So Iran's Hezbollah has threatens to attack American and Israeli interests, warning, "If America wants to ignite World War Three ... we welcome it."

How revealing. Seems that Newt Gingrich isn't alone in understanding what the stakes are -- and the fact that, like it or not, the bad guys are viewing everything that's happened as part of a global struggle, ultimately being waged against the United States.

"We welcome it"? I know he is a horrible excuse for a human being, but is he a total moron too? I thought he had some brains, evil, but not stupid. Well, I respond, "here!here! I welcome it too! The sooner the current regime is gone in Iran, the better"

Hear hear, Amber. I think he should be careful what he wishes for.

Shucks, just when the neocons had been discredited and put back into pandor's box, they all come out of hiding, displaying they are non-human and without souls.

Carol, you are too intelligent to continue down the road that you are on.

Facts Never Got in the Way of a Good War

Anthony Cordesman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies cautions in a new paper that "analysts and reporters need to be careful to stick to the facts in covering Iran's role in the current fighting" in the Middle East. He notes that "a number of sources -- including Israeli officials and officers" [to which company he might have added our very own U.S. hawks of the Bill Kristol-James Woolsey type] have inflated "suspicions and limited facts into full-blown conspiracies" to justify attacking Iran.

There is possibly no direct Iranian involvement in this particular campaign. I'm not optimistic this will do much to inhibit Israeli hawks (or the war-crazed Kristols and Woolseys of the world) who are baying for Iranian blood. One has to hope that the patent insanity of attacking Iran will suffice for cooler, saner heads to prevail.

There's no shortage of news these days suggesting that the world is more or less imploding. We've got Rush Limbaugh saying that Israel's invasion of Lebanon is a gift to the world and a lot of insane fundamentalist-types primed for rapture.

I would say that no one knows the Middle East like the Israelis. If they think it's time to whack the Iranians, they probably have the smoking gun to justify it. They are certainly well versed in knowing were the missles are coming from.

And let's give the Isreali's the support they need to complete the job. If they need a couple missles, extra guns, whatever.

Since our own left doesn't have the gonads to defend ourselves or other democracies from anyone, let's hope that Isreal can do the job we should have done years ago!

Now would be a perfext time time to do a regime change in North Korea and wipe Iran off the face of the earth. Just kill all of them with some bio or chemical weapons.

Let's give Israel what they need, be it a couple missiles, extra guns, or a few blustery, Cheeto-covered right-wingers rattling their sabers in basements all across America.

Okay, duke, we understand you clearly. Now, please, return to the French Presidential Palace and your buddy Chirac, where you belong. The lefty socialists are calling you!

And we understand you clearly, Pete. You won't be happy until every Muslim is disemboweled or charred to a crisp, and probably not even then.

If you could see past your enormous "gonads," you would understand that what you are salivating for will only perpetuate the cycle of hatred and destruction, tough guy.

Ditto:

The so-called "neocons" have NOT been discredited. Rather, the policies they've espoused are proving to be effective in the Middle East.

Evil regimes in Afghanistan and Iraq have been overthrown. The people there are fighting to establish free and fair governments.

Lybia has decided (for now) to cooperate with the international community.

Lebonon evicted what Syrians they were able.

Iran is beginning to panic.

Egypt is slowly beginning to implement democratic reforms.

Hmmm...

I'd say those old "neocons" are onto something. You only wish they were discredited.

Sure Greg, whatever you say. Isn't it time for you to get back to the Disney Channel.

Cliff,

As that other commenter said you're just evil. Ha! She nailed you.
