Bush And Iran

Bush kicked the rhetoric up a notch in his speech yesterday.

He told us that he knows for a fact that the Iranian government is providing material support for the Iraqi Resistance (err Freedom Fighters, I mean... Terrarists).

Lately the news has shown some of the munitions captured from Iraqis. Fortunately for the viewing public, it seems that Arabs label their munitions in English using English block lettering. Though this probably makes munitions more dangerous for people that can only read Farsi to handle, it does make it easier for us to determine that Iranians made them.

I did a check in my own home for munitions labeled in English, and found some. I didn't know that Winchester and Remington were Iranian corporations, but I guess we learn something new everyday.

As an experiment, I encourage readers to look around their homes for Iranian goods and products, labeled in the tell-tale English language. You'll probably find quite a bit of this stuff around the house.

Now if you want to see the speech yourself, you can go to CSpan and watch it. Or if you have and Bush speeches from the first quarter of 2003, you can watch those and mentally fill in the name Iran, everywhere Bush says Iraq.

Bush made it clear that we can't let Iran continue to munitions into Iraq. So I guess we'll have to bomb Iran, then invade, then rinse and repeat, with the next Middle Eastern Country on the list. That would be Syria, right?

I guess there is an upside, the resulting return of the draft is likely to remove a lot of right wing trolls from the intertubes.

I noticed the markings were in English right away. Bush is a pathological liar.

Did you know that English is the official air-traffic language anywhere and everywhere on the planet...even if it’s a flight from Spain to France? English is the common denominator for ALL bilingual humans on the planet (i.e. if you speak more than one language, then English is the most likely to be at least one of them, and more likely than every language on the planet).

It would make very, very obvious sense in situations as hazardous as flying, for professionals to require as standardization, the use of the greatest common denominating language among people involved in such extremely hazardous inter-lingual activities. With that said, it makes perfect sense for ALL military-standardized bombs to incorporate English labels and instructions to at least some degree. So, the fact of English block-lettering is of absolutely no significance when it comes to determining which language the bomb-makers speak.

But even more significantly, why does it matter WHO made them? The important thing is who currently OWNS them and who is now SELLING them to enemies of the US.

OK, so if some country is giving/selling/aiding your enemy during a war...what do you do? That would then make that country an accomplice to you enemy, would it not?

I think, Weaseldog, that you are just anti-America no matter what, and are willing to use any occasion as an opportunity to hurt us and help your own alien base, no matter the rationale. The end (attacking us) always justifies the means (faulty argumentation), right?

"I guess there is an upside, the resulting return of the draft is likely to remove a lot of right wing trolls from the intertubes."

Wrong, the return of the draft would force that segment of the US population not already affiliated with the military to affiliate. The right-wing trolls, you see, ARE the volunteer military. It is you limp-wristed, blue-blooded liberal elites who would be affected by a draft, not us ignorant rednecks. The poor are not affected by a draft…it are the rich kids who fear a draft. We already are the military, and we want a draft because it's not fair we are the only ones who put our lives on the line for the federal government.

First, we're not talking about bombs. We're talking about mortars and rockets. These are launched from the ground.

Also, in a typical air force, pilots aren't responsible for tracking, moving and loading bombs.

We have seen film and footage in the past of Iraq and Iranian munitions. they were labeled in Arabic script. I'm sure you've seen footage on television of ammo dumps discovered when we first went into Iraq?

Now true patriots support our troops and want them to stay in Iraq until they die or are maimed.

I don't want all of our young soldiers slaughtered and butchered, so I hate America.

These days, you have to want Americans dead to be a proper patriot. I can't wish for such a thing.

But sarcasm aside. The people diving this war must be satanists. Who else tells lots of lies in order to engage in the slaughter of Human beings? And who else but Satan's minions would allow themselves to fooled into supporting a war that goes against the teachings of Christ? Do the war supporters believe that they can trick God through ignorance? Is their God that stupid?

Sure it is. You are the ones who are always hawking war. You are the ones who believe the MIC lies. The libs don't want a war, you do. I think it is entirely fair that the volunteers fight alone, they are the ones upholding the corporate fascist power base and would likely oppress your own countrymen for a paper fiat dollar.

I'm surprised bush hasn't used a handy little catch phrase; you know something like, "weapons of mass destruction". Well, it should work with around 30% of the American population, wouldn't you think?
