Greetings good citizen,

The world’s stock markets are selling off, the typical ‘profit-taking’ that we should all be used to by now.

And guess what today’s top headline on the NY Times is?

Their analysis, however, also includes the broad caveat that it is impossible to know the internal thinking of the senior Iranian leadership, and is informed by the awareness that even the most detailed war games cannot predict how nations and their leaders will react in the heat of conflict.

Yet these specialists continue their work, saying that any insight on how the Iranians will react to an attack will help determine whether the Israelis carry out a strike — and what the American position will be if they do.

Israeli intelligence estimates, backed by academic studies, have cast doubt on the widespread assumption that a military strike on Iranian nuclear facilities would set off a catastrophic set of events like a regional conflagration, widespread acts of terrorism and sky-high oil prices

War with Iran…

Can you believe it good citizen? We have been ‘at war’ in the Middle East for the past 25 years good citizen and the clueless motherfuckers want to go again!

And WHY do we want to attack the followers of the Ayatollah this time?

Same reason as last time, Israel is ‘scared’.

The last dozen years (which just recently sparked a massacre due to ‘multiple deployments) are winding down and all of a sudden the prospects of a ‘nuclear armed’ Iran is ‘scaring’ a country that doesn’t even share a border with Iran!

So I ask you good citizen, just how STUPID is the average American if they believe the leadership of Iran has suddenly become ‘suicidal’?

Because that’s the story you’re supposed to be buying, good citizen! That the Iranians, (being Moslems) are ‘too fanatical’ to be trusted with nuclear weapons.

Yet who is it that has repeatedly attacked it’s Arab neighbors and currently ‘occupies’ much of their territory as a ‘safety measure’ (while treating the original inhabitants of the region like second class citizens?

Why it is the same nation that is claiming to feel ‘threatened’. (It is also the same nation that has ‘access to’ US nuclear weapons stored on their territory…)

This is the ‘ally’ we are being asked to deploy US blood and treasure to ‘defend’?

We (as well as the Israelis) should be asking just how valuable their ‘friendship’ will be once the Middle East exhausts it’s exportable oil supply?

Some might even opine that such, er, ‘military adventurism’ is spurred by the prospects of the Arab world closing down the export spigot ‘early’.

As I have stated repeatedly, much of what is today known as the Western World would become ‘uninhabitable’ for much of the calendar year without a steady supply of cheap and abundant energy.

Let’s dial down the rhetoric a few notches, shall we?

The Israelis are no more frightened of Iran obtaining nuclear arms than we are. MAD still holds sway across much of the civilized world.

Which is to point out there is a far greater danger of Iran being nuked by US than the other way around!

Given the, er, ‘uncertain quality’ of US leadership, I’d suggest that Israel keep one eye fixed over its shoulder as well!

The scoundrels in charge appear willing to throw anybody ‘under the bus’ if they can turn the resulting situation to their personal advantage…

See, this is one of the, er, ‘difficulties’ that surround the global collapse of the ‘rule of law’.

Without the ‘safeguards’ the rule of law provides it all comes down to ‘who do you trust’?

Like they say, if you sit down at a poker table and you don’t know who the mark is…chances are its you!

Which would be okay if you were all ‘equally as vulnerable’ but we all know that’s not how it works.

First they gang up on you and bleed you, not quite dry but you’re hurting because you didn’t see it coming.

Then they set upon you again and now you’re in too deep. You can’t pay what you owe and all of a sudden your ‘old friends’ don’t return your calls anymore…

The truly disturbing part is there are a thousand guys just like you…and just like you, half of ‘em will end up getting ‘sacrificed’…because the others gotta eat, you know!

And when they’re all wise to the game, then what?

Now you CAN’T trust anybody and the whole ball of wax just falls apart.

Which is to point out that’s there’s nothing you can do.

Destroy the ‘rule of law’ and you ultimately destroy the ‘bond of trust’.

And once the bond of trust is destroyed, the whole game comes to a screeching halt.

Now the problem is what to you do for the next thirty or forty years while you wait for people to forget that they CAN’T TRUST NOBODY?

We’ll see.

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
