For what it’s worth, this
seems to be the consensus of “official” media opinion now: that Benny has been
talked down off the ledge and naaaaaaaah we don’t have nothing to worry about,
there ain’t gonna be no attack, nothing to see here, everybody turn your faces
back to the election dog and pony show. We gave Benny a nice speech at the U.N.
and that will do the trick.
Well…maybe. It could be that maybe Netanyahu staged the whole thing
as a tantrum to try and force the United States
into attacking Iran
for him. (Remember, Benny really does want a war, he just wants the U.S. to start
it and take the blame for the subsequent world disaster and misery.)
has received some kind of vague promises to attack Persia later from Obongo, after
finally being let in on the little secret that Obongo’s re-election is assured
and this whole performance is nothing but smoke and mirrors, so he needs to quit wasting his time schmoozing with Mitt Romney and the neo-cons because they ain't coming back.
But what about all that
military intel which indicates that the Persians are digging like a bunch of
lunatic gophers, and that by spring all their nuclear toys will be so deeply
buried underground that any bombing raid at all will be pointless?
super-Zionists have a point: things have reached the point where for the West not to attack now means that the Powers
That Be have tacitly accepted a nuclear Iran. Hmmmm….
We may have dodged the
bullet, in which case I have never been so happy to be proven wrong. But still,
I think I’m still going to be dating my next couple of Radio Free Northwests “1914.”
