Chimp Threatens Iran
His Chimpiness, George W. Bush, has warned of the dangers than Iran is supposed to pose. He went on to say that Iran needed to be opposed "before it is too late".
Opposed by whom, exactly? The Arab states are not going to get into a shooting war with Iran, and the Americans have still not managed to subjugate Iraq. So who is in line to do this opposing, in the interests of American capital?
Surely the chimp can't be planning an Operation Barbarossa all of his own? The idea sounds ludicrous, doesn't it, but we need to remember that we are not dealing with capitalism at its most rational and thoughtful.
Furthermore, the smirking simian will leave office in exactly one year from now. Neither of the wars against Afghanistan and Iraq have gone to plan, so the temptation to go all out for victory over someone, anyone, must be overwhelming.
Stay tuned. . .
