November 17, 2004: “The domestic situation is more or less quiet, aside from continuing noise about stolen votes. This will go nowhere because while there was indeed fraud on the part of the Rove people, it is difficult and very expensive to prove and believe me, even if it is proven, Bush will stay in the White House.
More interesting, and important, is the foreign situation.
Bush and his friends are completely determined to attack Iran as soon as possible.
What these fanatical dimbulbs do not seem to realize, although there is plenty of evidence available, is that the Iranians are expecting such attacks and are now putting the final touches on their own program to neutralize US/Israeli aggressive intentions.
Both US intelligence (via side-angle and overhead satellites) and foreign intelligence reports indicate that the Iranians have received at least several Russian-made long distance rockets with nuclear warheads included and these rockets have the ability to easily reach domestic US targets, at least on the East Coast.
A number of ex-Russian Israeli citizens are in the Israeli defense program and have been leaking information back to Russia with the results that this new defense/offense program has been rapidly accelerated.
No one but Tony Blair and the neocon nuts want to see an escalation of war in the Middle East.
There are several reasons why the Bush people want to take out Iran.
Iran has the nerve to sell oil to the now-feared Chinese;
Iran supplies money and weapons to the insurgents in Iraq and are arming and training anti-Saud Saudi- Arabians thus threatening the US oil connection there,
Iran dares to sell oil to the Asians, thus depriving the US of said oil;
Iran has been and is counterfeiting American money and if and when this ever gets public, there is a serious chance the dollar will collapse as international currency.; and most important,
Iran has <>dared<> to defy the wishes of our new Emperor.
As an aside, the Chinese, clever as always, have been heavily supporting the US economy by buying up Treasury Bills. Why? Because the US has become heavily dependant on this financial support and when the Chinese decide to cut off this aid, (which there is every indication that they will do) there will be a very quick economic collapse here. This is a very clever ploy and it is a bargaining chip for Beijing to play if and when it gets a good offer from other enemies of the US.
Our people are putting stories out about a fictional “super missile” that is speed-of-light fast and cannot be interdicted. This is pure PR bullshit. The concept has been studied but is <>not<> feasible and almost everyone else knows it. The newly-sycophantic press is eagerly putting this one out all over the place but outside the US, it is considered almost as big a joke as the fictional “Star Wars” program was.
Bush no longer wants, nor will have, any independent thought around the Monkey Palace. He replaced the very reluctant and, from his point of view, obstructionist, Powell with the ferociously butt-kissing Condi Rice. She has spent the first imperial term running all over the Beltway doing everything she can to support Bush, even though she lies through her teeth and is well aware of it. Also, it is repulsive to hear her suck up to Bush. She lavishly praises him in front of others, claiming that he is a brilliant man, which he <>certainly is not<>, and a fount of wisdom. Her favorite phrase is “Oh, you are right as usual, Mr. President!” and her conduct is very dangerous. Bush sucks up flattery and loves flatterers with an abiding passion. No one who wants to keep his or her job dares to give him information that is contrary to his beliefs or who dares to cross Fat Karl Rove in any way. One of Rove’s super-gay, joy-boy loving friends has now been elevated by Bush to a very important position but there is trouble brewing in that quarter and look for leaks to cause more rage in the Oval Office.
Queers, Likudists, Jesus Freaks and neo-fascists are all we see around here these days and the suction around the Imperial fundament sounds like a vacuum convention in full swing.”
