Justin Raimondo's latest Antiwar.com column, "World Politics and Showbiz," addresses the recent events at the United Nations General Assembly and specifically the comments made by Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez and Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
And as I sit here, neocon shill Glenn Beck (who can be amusing at times) is saying Ahmadinejad (whom Beck calls "President Tom") is preparing to attack us and/or Israel. He and many other neocon scum have been saying this, based on what? What proof do they have?
Yet, at a press conference, Ahmadinejad says: "And let me say that at the same time, we are Muslims. And based on a decree given by the leader of the Islamic republic, moving toward having a nuclear bomb is banned and forbidden. Therefore, no one has the right to move in this direction. In our country, it is not permissible."
So, what is it? Why are we about to go to war, destroying America in the process? Granted, Ahmadinejad is scarily slick and isn't cool when it comes to giving his people full freedom. Yet, you have to look at what he is saying and study it. Dismissing it out of hand is stupid and dangerous. These neocons know it, yet as Raimondo says in his column the pro-war propaganda in the media plays on the fears of the public on a "primordial, sub-literate level."
This is all insanity and in light of plotter Karl Rove calling for an "October Surprise." I wonder what the surprise will be?
