It
seems Conyers will do nothing, no matter how many people die because
of the crimes committed under the Bush regime.”

It
is happening. The plans for the Bush administration to begin mass
murder of the Iranian people have been put in motion. The plot was
stalled temporarily by the National Intelligence Estimate report
released last fall, a report which said that Iran did not have a
nuclear weapons program. Bush and Cheney were thrown off their game,
but not by much and not for long. They were inconvenienced but
ultimately took the small set back in stride because they both knew
they had nothing to worry about.

They
know that the press will report what they say without criticism or
analysis. They know that both Hillary Clinton and Barack
Obama have said that all options are on the table with Iran. They
know that European nations like France have publicly stated their
allegiance to Bush vis a vis Iran. British Prime Minister
Gordon
Brown

also bowed to Bushian bullying and declared that Iran must not be
allowed to become a nuclear power. Now Germany has joined the hall of
shame. German Chancellor
Angela
Merkel

groveled before the Israeli Knesset and essentially
iran_yr_nextpromised not to
protest when Israel assists America in creating an Iranian holocaust.
Apparently German sins of genocide against the Jews can only be
expiated by complicity with an Israeli genocide.

When historians write
about the catastrophes that struck the world in 2008, events that
have taken place in March of 2008 will surely loom large. The
worldwide economic meltdown finally became impossible to deny, with
the Federal Reserve using the workers’ dime to bail out a major
investment banking firm, Bear Stearns. Dick Cheney traveled to Iraq,
Israel, and Saudi Arabia, making sure his nefarious plans went off
without a hitch. John McCain claimed that Iran was the home of al
Qaeda, the bogeyman that sends already trigger happy Americans on
blood thirsty rampages. Democrats who had the power to stop Bush in
his tracks, once again pledged to do nothing.  

Apparently
German sins of genocide against the Jews can only be expiated by
complicity with an Israeli genocide.”

In
2007 both the Senate and House passed resolutions that backed war
with Iran. Impeachment, the one weapon Congress could use to stop
further war making, is ignored and forgotten by John Conyers,
Chairman of the House Judiciary committee.

In
recent days Conyers said he would begin impeachment hearings, but
only
if
Bush attacks

Iran. Apparently not enough human beings have been killed by Bush and
the body count needs to grow exponentially before Conyers will lift a
finger. On the other hand, the two-faced Congressman says he fears
impeachment because it will hurt the Democrats in the upcoming
November election. So it seems he will do nothing, no matter how many
people die because of the crimes committed under the Bush regime. 

The
attack on Iran is an open secret, but Americans, like a wronged
spouse, are the last to know. Dick Cheney must have told the Saudi
princes of his intended evil doing because Saudi Arabia is planning
for "the probabilities of leaking nuclear and radiation hazards
in case of any unexpected
nuclear
attacks in Iran
.
. . " Saudis know the deal, while John and Jane Q. Public are
still in the dark.

What
will the Democrats do when Iranians are nuked? When Israeli foreign
minister Tzipi Livni recently visited the United States, Obama
gave
her a phone call

and told her she shouldn’t worry about an Obama administration. He
said all the right things, that Israel has a right to defend itself
(kill Palestinians whenever it wants) and agreed that Iran was an
evil nation that shouldn’t have the nuclear weapons that Israel has
had for decades. So much for change.

The
saber rattling and furtive Dick Cheney meetings are just the tip of
the iceberg. The worldwide
economic
crisis is pushing the war agenda

more than any other factor. Black Agenda Report said as much nearly
one year ago.

Ultimately,
the parasitic class can only maintain its rule by force.
Manufacturing nothing, creating no value except on paper, they must
finally call upon the Armed Forces to impose their unearned advantage
on the planet. Such was the logic of March, 2003. The Great Offensive
failed, but the contradictions that compelled the captains of finance
capital to order their political servants to wage war, remain - and
are in fact more acute than four years ago. They
must
wage war, again, to fight their way out of the box.”

The
worldwide economic crisis is pushing the war agenda.”

Every
bail out of an investment bank is an omen of an oncoming worldwide
financial calamity, but it is also an omen of more American
aggression. The Obama/Clinton fight for the nomination is a sorry
side show spectacle. In any case, the new war will help John McCain
more than it will help the Democratic nominee. Even if the Democrat
should win, both Obama and Clinton have stated that they too believe
in maintaining America’s empire. Bush’s wars won’t end with a
Democratic administration.

In
the space of just five years, our nation will be waging another war
of aggression and we will all be accessories after the fact. Our
country may have also entered into a depression, so we will be poor
criminals too. To use an expression coined by Poppy Bush, we will be
in deep doo doo. Cheer up though. We won’t be in as much trouble as
Iranians. Many of them will soon be dead.
