Iran and N. Korea Beware - (This is the world on my 38th Birthday)
In the last 16 hours, it has become blatently obvious what the Foreign Agenda of the United States government will be for the next generation.

First, there was a little story run about how N. Korea has obtained a real complete whole nuclear bomb on yahoo.

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=586&e=3 ...

Then, news starts to leak from the NYSun about an Iranian defector and some blather about crashing a plane into a nuclear power plant in the US.

http://www.nysun.com/article/6231

These little pieces of obvious propoganda really seem to say that we can trust no US media at all - I absolutely hate that I am having to say that. Sources like Knight-Ridder still ring true to me, but the point is that the near future, as the near past, is nothing more than a complex propoganda campaign with only vague references to the truth.

Because of the way Bush lies, we now must now seriously consider the possibility that major events of the last 4 years were fabrications for a later event and were justified with propoganda. Because there is no provocation against the US anymore, there is no stopping this machine.

If Bush* has his way, in the next four year the US is going to war with Iran and will remove Kim Jong Il of N. Korea. I believe they had hoped to accomplish this before the election, but major miscalculations complicated the situation in Iraq.

In his state of the union address on January 28, 2003, Bush* called by name the countries of Iraq, Iran and North Korea. His legacy is and has been dependent on this being correct no matter what the cost. And, unfortunately, his legacy is also that of the US.

The complicity of the media in this disinformation campaign is unforgivable, no matter what the reason (money or patriotism). No US media should be trusted. Likewise, no international media conglomerate (mainly murdoch) should be trusted. These stories may be true, but we have no way to know.

So, in the blink of an eye, everything I believed about the last 4 years are now totally in question.

It's an odd feeling that I know the future better than I know the past. But, on my 38th birthday, the future is suddenly much more clear to me. We will be attacking these countries. We need no further provocation. That is just an unfortunate reality now.

As American's, we must begin to build something somehow that will demonstrate to the rest of the world that we are not monsters. The fear factor is now alive and well and it will last for many many years. There is no possible way to avoid it.

I think the next 20 years will be about the US acting militarily and aggressively around the world. The 20 years beyond that depends entirely on the outcome. At first glance, our major hurdles and obstacles are hard to see, but they seem to include the threat of a nuclear bomb hitting the US or anywhere and the dissipation of allegiances. So, most likely, in 20 years the US will be much more heavily armed and fortified. Much more of the taxes will be going toward some type of security or military operation. The day of freedom is behind us and will likely never emerge again, since we have no way to know if there are more nuclear bombs out there.

God really looked kindly on the US in the 20th Century. If we ever needed friends, it's now.

You know what I'd really like to know, if I had a crystal ball?

Who is running our government?

2. I don't think the rest of the world will let us
They realize now that we have lost our sanity when it comes to being responsible global citizens. More and more conferences, both economic, military, and environmental, are being held without US involvement. China, our main trading partner, is seeking new markets in other parts of the world.

Like Russia, we are heading for a fall. The sad thing is, all of us who opposed this insanity will fall along with Bushco. I just hope he isn't so insane as to start a nuclear holocost.

3. Happy Birthday, Fellow Aquarius!
I see you have received the gift/curse of Open Eyes. The consolation is that, in two years, many people will see what you are seeing now.

:party:

4. Theres only one little problem with attacking
countries that have the bomb. There is nothing stopping them srom using it in retaliation. Dosen't he think that Iran hates us and so does N. Korea, and if we take any action at all there is a good chance that they will use the bomb on us. But not in combat, no, in a reprisal strike on us soil. This could be the start of armageddon. This administration, and indeed the repukes since Reagan have believed that they will be the one to take the US through armageddon :(

5. Happy Birthday
and dont worry too much about Bush being able to attack Iran or N.Korea. He wont get pass Congress. And the Republicans are not about to commit political sucide.

But keep up the pressure just the same. :crazy: in case the republicans are all confirmed nutcase.
