“The Crazies” Have Nukes … And Lies
This missive was going to cover a few more of the endless lies about Russia, NATO, the SMO, and WW3, but, again, it’s all lies. It always has been. And, I’ve covered them pretty well for the past five months. Instead, the bulk of this column is about other lies.
Let me get one little anecdote out of the way. I recall being told as a child many terrible things about Russia and life in the USSR. Miserable people lived somber lives of poverty, and so forth. I was told they didn’t even have the luxury of blue jeans. As a child, I never questioned any of it. However, just for fun and not long before the SMO started, I looked into what middle-class Russian life was like back around the time I was being lied to as a child. What did I find?
I found pictures of a typical factory-working family from Moscow, circa 1979. They – mom, dad, sons, daughters-in-law, and grandkids – were on vacation at their lakeside dacha. These poor, oppressed people were at their summer home, somberly enjoying the sunshine and craft beer. The kids were happily playing with modern toys. Everyone looked healthy and they were all wearing clothing and shoes, as bell-bottomly-tacky as anything in America during the same unfashionable period. But, hey, wait! Half of them were wearing blue jeans. In fairness to my memory, they might have allegedly been denied designer American jeans. Still, again, and again, and again … we just haven’t been told much in the way of truth.
Several years ago, I found myself in a conversation about nuclear weapons and the terrible specter of their usage. A reliable and intelligent friend expressed his concern about what would happen if “the crazies” ever obtained A or H bombs. It is, I think, a reasonable concern.
What he meant by “the crazies” was Iran and North Korea. Of course, we now have the big OOPS factor in re Pyongyang. We also have the undeniable truth that while the House of Kim has developed nukes and the systems to deliver them, they haven’t delivered them and they show no signs of doing so. For what it’s worth – probably not much – I hear they also have some first-class beer gardens they are keeping all to themselves.
That leaves Iran.
At the outset, and just in case any neocons or churchians read this, I have a link RIGHT HERE to some pictures that illustrate the horrible, unconscionable, and dismal oppression that simply is modern Iran. Shredding, chics in lipstick, a DJ, and that dude in a Batman shirt! Can you “even”?
I didn’t bother to look up any, but I easily recall some of the recent prevaricating headlines about Persia:
“Mad Mullahs Want Bomb”
“Iran Hates Our Freedom (Fries)”
“Tehran Threatens To ‘WiPe IsRaEL oFf ThE MaP!!!!!!’”
“Iran Weeks Away From A-Bomb”
“Iran Days Away From Nukes”
“Minutes To Iranian Warheads”
“You Were Probably Vaporized Before You Finished Reading This Lie!”
It’s all lies, all the time, in the WereWestern media. Still, sometimes a little remarkable truth manages to leak out. Last week at the Aspen Security Forum, amid many interesting revelations, threats, and hints (watch your back, little Ze!), Bill Burns, as honest a CIA director as any fake administration could ever appoint, said of Iran’s nuclear ambitions: “Our best intelligence judgment is that the Iranians have not resumed the weaponization effort that they had underway up until 2004 and then suspended, so that’s something, obviously we at CIA and across the US intelligence community keep a very, very sharp focus on”.
First, whenever I think of Billy the Spook, I always hear Homer Simpson’s voice say, “Mr. Burns.” You? Bet you will now. And second, don’t they have the Drudge Report or RT at Langley? Gekaufte Journalisten and all that? What kind of police state doesn’t even buy into its own idiotic fake headlines?!
It turns out that despite all the hysteria, Iran does not, in fact, plan to build nuclear weapons. Burns has the right time frame. In 2005, then-President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad mentioned the Fatwa issued by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei forbidding the development, possession, or use of nuclear arms as a violation of (Shia) Islamic law.
Yes, Cleetus, I realize the Iranians must have, at some level, their own propaganda and that certain subtleties may affect the Ayatollah’s ban. I just happen to trust Tehran’s (and anyone else’s) potential subterfuge more than Washington’s.
I did a little independent digging, and it appears there is an ancient Islamic injunction against what we might call total war or war by mass destruction. While it’s not perfect, this little summary is a good start. Abu Bakr’s orders sound somewhat like Christian just war principles. That’s probably one reason most Americans and modern Christians have never heard about them. It’s kind of like the extreme similarity between the Islamic take on the current whereabouts, seating arrangement, and future plans of Jesus and those found in the Nicene Creed.
While I was drafting, and while I was pondering the dichotomy between the foregoing and the revelations of Gitten 56-57, another, semi-ponderings-aligned headline came along: “Israel may strike Iran over atomic program.” They even admit what Burns was saying, which is what Mossad and the IDF have been saying, though they still whoop to conquer. Because, you know… Good luck with that! If there is any sort of major military strike by the USSA or Israel against Iran, then we likely won’t get the truth about how it fails.
We haven’t been told the truth. About much of anything.
We got lies about Iranian nukes.
We got lies about terrorism.
We got lies about Operation Nine-Eleven-Woods.
We got lies about Saddam’s WMDs.
We got lies about Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.
We got lies about the Hon. Gen. Qasem Soleimani.
We got lies about Soleimani’s war crime murder by the Empire.
We got lies about Iran’s just, proportionate, and total retaliation at Al Assad, at the consular office, and later, at the Mossad FOB.
We got lies regarding the CCB (“Chinese Communist Bat”).
We got lies about a bioweapon poorly disguised as a vaccine.
We’re already getting lies about the queer nothing that is Monkeypox.
Lie, after lie, after lie about all things Russia.
And about anything else of any importance.
Back to the crazies. The crazies already have nuclear weapons. They’ve had them for some time. And the very craziest among them, the evilest, have already used those weapons.
The final Strike Order for the bombing of Hiroshima (with Nagaski to follow) listed Protestant and Catholic service times for the 509th Composite Group. Mass was at 22:00, on Monday, August 6, 1945. On the morning of Thursday, August 9th, someone else’s Mass was interrupted. At 11:01 AM, local time, Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Nagasaki was the largest Christian Church in the Orient. At 11:02, the building was turned into a pile of blasted, scorched rubble, and the many parishioners present were turned into ash.
The Yankee Empire dropped an atomic bomb on a Church. Please tell us more lies about Iran, North Korea, China, and Russia.
