Bush’s New Plan?

So, I am guessing this is Bush’s new plan for Iraq? Or is that the plan for Iran? Raiding Iranian embassies and kidnapping Iranian diplomats? Yeah, that will solve the U.S woes in the region.

  1. The irony is….there’s no country that’s been a bigger supporter of the Maliki government than Iran.

  2. Yes, that is indeed ironic. Ironic, too, is the fact that while virtually all other rulers elsewhere in the Arab/Islamic world have been characterized as puppets by Iran and HezbAllah’s Al-Manar TV, both have been mum on Al-Maliki & co. This is sectarianism being played out at its best. One would’ve expected, however, that Iran would lend vocal support to Muqtada al-Sadr. But we must keep in mind that this could be a strategic position, given the increasing Sunni-Shi’ite tensions, and how support for Muqtada al-Sadr would actually alienate Iran from its surroundings (not that it isn’t already), and put HezbAllah (and Hamas) in a very delicate position domestically. Plus, it would lend credence to U.S claims that Iran is supporting Sadr’s “insurgency”. And they wouldn’t want to give that image, would they?😉

  3. For years, we in America have supported Israel both financially and militarily because we perceived they were the innocent victims of hostile and violent neighbors. The US media has, for years, provided extensive coverage of every incident involving Arab-against-Israeli violence. From shootings, to car bombs to suicide bombers, we in America have seen it all. Or have we?

    Why would rational human beings, given a choice, choose to attack their neighbors rather than live together in peace? More pertinent, why would a rational human being choose to blow him up rather than live? The Israelis, the US media and our politicians would have us believe that the Arabs are simply not rational. They routinely tell us that Arabs are “religious fanatics” who “hate freedom” or “hate our way of life” to quote George W. Bush. These arguments are fallacious and intellectually bankrupt.

    The reason for Arab against Israeli violence is simple: The Israelis have been systematically repressing and brutalizing hundreds of thousands of Arabs on a scale unparalleled since World War 2.
