neo-cons hype y2k-style fearmongering
from propagandamatrix: Following a month or more of hysterical fearmongering from Neo-Con cells and their evangelist sympathizers, tomorrow, August 22nd, is being hyped by some as the potential 'end of the world' doomsday in which a massive Iranian attack will result in mushroom clouds over Israeli and US cities.
Quite how Madman Mahmoud is going to engineer the apocalypse when the CIA's own investigation said he was ten years away from the bomb is never explained by the festering alarmists.
Apparently it's all based around the commemoration of the return of the 12th imam - or is it the 14th bigfoot? The 32nd Loch Ness Monster? Well, who cares - when Chicago goes boom just blame it all on the 'International Islamo-Fascist network' and the proles will be eating from the hands of their security masters once again.
If there is some kind of staged attack then as always we will look at who has the capability and the motive to pull it off - especially in light of the fact that Dick Cheney's USSTRATCOM contingency plan calls for attacking Iran in the immediate aftermath of a 'second 9/11' - no matter who is behind it - which of course is going to be the cabal Dick Cheney fronts for itself.
On the morning of August 23rd I'm going to have a fantastic time making all these imbeciles eat crow when nothing happens. On the other hand, according to the doomsday prophets of Fox News, the entire planet and everything on it - including the Internet - will have been obliterated and so no one will get the last word anyway!
When August 22nd passes and the earth is still rotating around the sun, the Neo-Cons will be sure to invent a new threat and a new date on which we're all going to hell in a hand basket - unless we fight the 'Islamo-Fascists'.
I'm more concerned about Neo-Fascists who occupy the thrones of governments, command armies and stockpile deadly weapons, than I am of so-called Islamo-Fascists in caves on the Afghan border and in the Iranian Parliament.
That concern will not have changed come August 23rd.
