War of Aggression Cancelled?

Cartoon bomb

If all goes well, the U.S. military won’t have to invade Iran on behalf of Israel after all. I recall there were times during the Bush administration when I thought we were just days away from another illegal war of aggression – a really big one against a country of 77 million people.

Some important points:

Really, this whole brouhaha isn’t about nuclear weapons at all. It’s about regime change. Or you could also say, it’s about punishing ordinary Iranians because their government doesn’t like Israel.

    Another sad, sad day for Republican drama queens. I’m liking life these days!

    Somebody wants to say, “The smoking gun could come in the form of a mushroom cloud.” But that’s one slogan that can’t be recycled.

    Obama diplomacy’s slippery slope has been put in motion according to Dick Cheney. Hannity’s head bobbles:

    It’s a matter of months until we’re going to see a situation where other people feel they have to defend themselves by acquiring their own capability,” Cheney said. “And that will, in fact, I think put us closer to use — actual use of nuclear weapons than we’ve been at any time since Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II.”

    I guess everybody just wants to die. What has happened to our once great country? :(

      Great catch. Cheney is still saying “smoking gun” but with different words. Funny how nobody seems concerned that Israel (a rogue state if there ever was one) already has at least 80 nuclear weapons.

      For Israel, War Is No Longer an Option — It Is a Way of Life

      The IDF now operates using the doctrine of “disproportionate force,” defined as “force that is disproportionate to the enemy’s actions and the threat it poses.” We used to call this “overkill.”

        I guess Cheney’s 1 percent solution includes a 1 percent chance of diplomacy. If this senile old man wanted to try and fix his Swiss watch, the first thing he’d reach for is his hammer and Hannity would be shaking his head yes, because he’s Hannity.

        All the other media outlets must have felt the burn from the last time they put Cheney on for a serious discussion.

    Josh Marshall: Right-wingers are opposed to the Iran deal because “it will take the US out of the confrontation with Iran business. For Israel and especially for Saudi Arabia that’s really not a good thing.”

    But it’s great for the USA, which is something American politicians ought to be happy about.
