Its incessant fear-mongering and ratcheting-up of tensions in the Middle East and around the world in recent times must give pause to wonder whether the Israeli-Amerikkkan axis of evil has gone positively mad.
And while the hate-fomenting rhetoric of Israel and of Amerikkka has become somewhat divided in recent days on the question of whether either should attempt to bomb Iran into pre-historic times in the very near future, the two most right-wing countries in the world remain largely united in advancing an extremely destructive worldview and agenda.
But the issue of Iran – as also the issue of Syria – may prove to be the twin challenges that create some disunity between between Israel and Amerikkka and amongst the bit players – the NATO countries – in this most dangerous axis of evil in the history of the world.
While Amerikkka purports to oppose an attack on Iran’s peacefully-purposed nuclear installations at this time, the rabidly-insane Israeli government – no more and no less rabidly insane than the governments of either Iran or Amerikkka (especially its so-called Congress) – is gung-ho to go to war.
As deluded as are the assumptions and the agenda of the Isreali-Amerikkkan axis, even they must question whether Israel, on its own, can prevail over Iran.
Iran may not have the 200-300 nuclear warheads Israel has, but it does have a fairly awesome military of its own.
If Isreal attacks Iran – and extreme right-wing Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu is just salivating at the prospect of doing so – Iran will most certainly strike back. And Israel will start to lose.
As the junior political partner and the senior military partner in the Israeli-Amerikkkan axis, Amerikkka will be compelled to come to the defence of Israel.
Why? Because Amerikkka gives fellow First-World country Israel $4 billion a year in foreign aid and AIPAC (the America-Isreali Political Action Committee) – one of the most powerful lobbies in Amerikkka – siphons off a huge chunk of that$4 billion to buy Amerikkkan politicians and make sure Amerikkka’s mighty military is always available to do Israel’s bidding when military push comes to military shove.
And as soon as Amerikkka starts to flex its military muscle in Israel’s defence against Iran, the entire Arab and Muslim world will feel compelled to side with Muslim Iran.
There will quickly be a rash of oil embargoes. Gas – to whatever extent it’s available at all – will soar to over $7 a gallon in the U.S. and over $2 a litre in Canada.
All of mankind would soon be thrust into a global depression worse than any in history and the onset of World War 3.
Will the Other 99 Percent allow the entire human species to be wiped out in the flash of a cosmic conflagration simply because the Top One Percent in Israel (which has 200-300 nuclear warheads) and Amerikkka (which has more than 20,000 nuclear warheads) will not tolerate Iran having even one, when Iranian territory is within range of the nuclear warheads of at least eight other countries, when Iran itself is surrounded by no less than 45 Amerikkkan military bases in other countries, and when Amerikkka and Israel having been waging a Cold War against Islam for more than a decade,
against Iran for more than three decades and against the Palestinians for more than six decades?)
Is the government of Iran really any more insane than the government of Israel or the government (and especially the Congess) of Amerikkka? Is the Top One Percent in Iran really any more insane than the Top One Percent in Israel or the Top One Percent in Amerikkka?
I think not.
