Double Vendetta: The Insanity of the Iran Confrontation

How long can we allow the maniacs who are driving us to the brink of World War Three to stay in power? We’d better do something soon, or we will all be done for.

My special thanks to Gilad Atzmon, whose reading of the “Israeli Peace Manifesto” helps to point up the gulf between what they say and what they do. Gilad’s rather more honest writing can be found here. He’s a pretty cool saxophone player, too.

Any copyrighted material in this video has been used in the interests of the survival of humanity, and anyone who objects to its use is one sick individual. We have allowed the sociopaths with their wealth, greed and selfishness to rule us for too long, only by making an effort, ourselves, will anything ever change.

My thanks to those whose videos and still pictures have made my job just a little bit easier in trying to persuade people that all is not as it seems to be: To for the clips from the video “IDF Israeli soldiers beat local and international protesters.”

    Concise and sobering video which serves as a reminder of the history behind the conflict. Lawson rightfully admonishes us to do something to stop this illegal, imminent war on Iran. But how does the peace and liberty-loving reader stop such evil? Protests are no longer televised, the msm is an arm of the military industrial complex, and we’re still being attacked by weapons of mass financial destruction courtesy of wall street (with more bailouts on the horizon to fully bankrupt us) If we are lucky enough to have jobs, a roof over our heads, and the will to end such an atrocity, please advise as to what we really should do to stop such an cataclysmic horror as this (inevitable?) one. Thanks for an excellent post. Will be passing it on.

    try to set free a little truth:
    Attention Patrick McH: from Israel Shamir quoting J Martillo: “In his view, in order to understand Jews, it is not necessary to venture into days of Jesus Christ; history of Poland will do. He goes to the days of Rzeczpospolita, the Polish Commonwealth (from 1505 until 1795), then ethnic Ashkenazim constituted economic elite of the realm. They lost this status in the partitions of Poland. This is the destroyed Temple; in Martillo’s view, these are good old days the Jews miss. They want to be the elite as they were in the days of Rzeczpospolita. Jews did well after the collapse of the Polish Commonwealth, notes Martillo, but not the level as they would have liked.

    “Despite supposedly onerous Czarist oppression, Russian Jews had higher incomes, more education, and longer life spans than the non-Jewish populations among whom they lived. They were highly disaffected because of exclusion from the status and access to which they believed they were entitled, but they were not obviously more oppressed than the majority of the Czar’s subjects and less oppressed than others.

    The only way these war can come to an end is to follow the benefactor. Here the Zionists have big steak and have positioned themselves to benefit from the on going war against the Muslims. This is for the grater Israel. As Bibi said to B. Obama, there will not be a peace negotiation unless US bombs Iran. The audacity of the Zionists to give an ultimatum to our president.

    Iranians have gone through worse. After 1953 regime change that we tailored and destroyed their democratically elected government our poppet, Shah left a bad taste in their mouth and They will not put up with that again. The Iranians will fight as they did for 8 years against Saddam Hussein aggression and our backing. Id a single F-16 flies over Tehran, it does not make no difference who’s it is, Iran will retaliate and our soldiers will take the brunt of it, not the Zionists.

    Only we can voice our concerns by writing to our representatives and blog such as these and hope for the best.

    Recently, the Iranian President Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was interviewed by Jon Lee Anderson, staff writer of the Jewish owned daily The New Yorker. Anderson asked the same old Israeli Hasbara questions; Ahmadinejad wants to wipe Israel off the map, he denies the Holocaust and Iran’s nuclear program is a covert plan to manufacture nuclear plan which if not stopped through sanctions – could be grave threat to the security of Western countries and Israel which have a stockpile of over 23,000 nuclear bombs between them.

    In the interview Dr. Ahmadinejad made some of the following observations:

    “Today, nations are extremely distressed by the presence of US military bases in their countries, and demand their closure. This is while just 40 years ago they welcomed the bases on their soil. This means that America’s military dominance is over”.

    “While the US can maintain friendly, cultural and economic ties with the Middle East, nearly 97 percent of the region’s population are opposed to the US support of the Zionist Regime.”

    “Washington could spend the hefty sum, it spent supporting the Zionists and on invading Iraq and Afghanistan to enhance the quality of life for its nation or for cultivating and investing in the Middle East”.

    “The US politician’s hostility towards the Iranian nations is not limited to recent years. The US government carried out a coup in Iran 57 years ago, for which Madeleine Albright claimed full credit. The US supported Saddam during the eight-year Iraqi-imposed war.”

    “The worst kind of suppression exists in the United States. During the tenure of Bush, they controlled postal packages and tapped phone calls”.

    Ahmadinejad said Iran was ready to “help bring the US out of the crises” it has created in Iraq and Afghanistan, where thousands of US soldiers and hundreds of thousands of civilians have been killed.

    “Iran is ready to help them, based on justice and respect. I hope there is someone with an ear among US politicians to understand this and brings no more deaths to the people in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as US soldiers,” he said.

    To understand Anderson’s state of mind, one has to read the interview he recently gave to ‘State of Nature’, in which he said: “Well, there’s Islamists and there’s Islamists, but when we’re talking about the kind of Islamists who are willing to commit mass carnage repeatedly, for the sake of creating a religious autocracy, I don’t think Che (Guevara) would have been in agreement, to say the least”.

    “staff writer of the Jewish owned daily The New Yorker.”

    The new yorker is an embarrassment to journalism, and to new york. And both of those dubious achievements take considerable effort, considering….

    Yes, no other term would fit more than “Double Vendeta”.
    And yes, this video should be spread all over the world and translated into the other languages of the world.
    The current situation will not only remind me at that in 1962, the “Cuba Crises”.

    Attention Wal Mart shoppers last night I was watching the the Kudlow show on CNBC the Capitalist New’s Broadcasting Company and they seem to be getting mean in a nice sort of way. The part of the show that got my attention was two guests and old Larry with I might add a new suit well the talk was Iran and the one guest said all attempts at reason with Iran have failed and look’s like about an eight day window and Israel will probably go in and take out some nuclear sites, oh crap. Then he said oil could go to 200 a barrel or higher and end the economic recovery we are in a recovery right? Then the other guest said at the end of this little talk that he has friends and they have a saying, “from our lips to God’s ears” then looked at the camera with what can best be described as a mean look. Ok that did it God are you out there far far away or am I looking at it in the wrong way a request can you make yourself known and do a few more miracles please I know your probably busy but I think we need your help on the third planet from the Sun in the Milky Way Galaxy. I don’t want to tell you what to do but a few thought’s maybe go on TV all the Channels Worldwide after all you did create the Universe piece of cake and tell all of us dumb ass human’s ok I gave you all a miracle of the Universe and look what you did what’s wrong with your minds? I missed something am having second thoughts on that little bit bigger brain part. Am going to help you one last time I have decided to turn all your nuclear weapons into lead and the Gold although you all have pretty much done that yourselves and the diamonds. You all have oil and coal now not all but almost all of it is now dirt I did leave you a little to change over to a clean form of energy as just on the off change you don’t make it it will be easier for me to clean up the mess you see your type of planet is rather rare in the Universe. Ok am leaving now and no more miracles am a busy God as there is other intelligent life in this Universe yes these’s more than one and others that need my help oh and when I say intelligent I say that with a grain of salt yes that’s still here. It’s up to you human’s if you wish to survive I’ll be back in about two hundred years for a look good luck keep it simple but not simpler.

    The Russians will start loading fuel into Bushehr next week. In the zionist corporate media, the attack Iran propaganda is reaching an hysterical crescendo right now.

    Iran counts down to nuclear power capability

    > “Despite supposedly onerous Czarist oppression, Russian Jews had higher incomes, more education, and longer life spans than the non-Jewish populations among whom they lived.

    It doesn’t seem that there is any source refernce given for such a claim, so it’s pointless to try to evaluate. Life-spans in Czarist Russia were crappy enough all-around that the claim might be plausible, but what’s the point?
