Neoconservatives Predict The Apocalypse Starts Tomorrow
Neoconservatives Predict The Apocalypse Starts Tomorrow



For months, neoconservatives have been pushing for regime change in Iran. In their latest effort to beat the war drums and undermine diplomacy, they are attaching great significance to August 22 the date Iran said it would respond to an incentives package from the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany.

August 22 is a day some Shiite sects believecould correspond to the end of the world. Thats enough for neoconservatives to conclude Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may have chosen to launch the apocalypse tomorrow.

Heres a look at the rhetoric being pushed by neocons to scare the American people into supporting military action:

2. Oh...alrighty then.
I guess it is possible, but my guess would be that someone a little closer to home that has had a twitchy finger on the big red button would be the one to start something.

3. The Apocalypse started on December 12th in the year 2000.
Scalia is directly to blame.

4. Here's the news for August 22nd 2006. (I changed the date in the song)
Turn on the TV
Turn on the radio.
Turn down that sound
Turn down that sound

Open the curtains
Open the windows.
What's happening around
What's happening around

I'll do some washing
I might go shopping
I'm going downtown
I'm going downtown

Someone told me, "nothing happened today."

I woke up late
I had a headache
I went back to sleep
Go back to sleep

I stood there waiting
Waiting for something
There wasn't a thing
Not even one thing

Someone told me, "nothing happened today."

Harry Hooper living in No. 10
Bought a toupee and glued it to his head
"It looks very natural," everybody said.
But then his wife said "Toupee, isn't that a French word?"
And Harry said, "Ole." She said, "That's a Spanish word."
And he said "O.K., can't tell the difference these days."

I watched TV
Cos I wanted to see
The late news at 10
It came on and then

She shuffled her papers
She swivelled in her chair
She looked up and said

The weather was fair
And then it turned cold
It started to rain
Pouring with rain.

Some people died
Some people were born
And some stayed the same
And some went insane

Tomorrow's Wednesday
Today was Tuesday
And this is the date
August 22nd

It was the morning
Then afternoon
And then the night came
And then the night came

Oh...and someone told me, "Nothing happened today."
Yes, someone told me, "Nothing happened today."
It happened today.
