War Pimp O'Reilly:"Blowing Iran Off Face of Earth Would Be the Sane Thing"
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 05:57 PM by Clara T


O'Reilly: Blowing Iran "off the face of the earth ... would be the sane thing to do"

Summary: On his radio program, Bill O'Reilly stated: "You know in a sane world, every country would unite against Iran and blow it off the face of the Earth. That would be the sane thing to do."

On the March 8 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Bill O'Reilly stated: "You know, in a sane world, every country would unite against Iran and blow it off the face of the earth. That would be the sane thing to do." O'Reilly made the remark during a discussion of Iran's recent threat to cause "harm and pain" to the U.S. if it pursues sanctions against Iran in the U.N. Security Council because of Iran's developing nuclear program.

As Media Matters for America has documented, O'Reilly recently declared that "it's just a matter of time ... before we have to bomb" Iran.

3. This proves O'Lielly's insanity,
and makes me say once again that he should be taken off the airwaves for his mental health-and ours.

*A woman convicted for war crimes committed when she made propaganda broadcasts on behalf of the Japanese Fascists during World War Two.

Inciting aggressive wars of extermination is still a crime against humanity under the UN Genocide Convention. Maybe Bill needs a long European vacation.

27. Do you want to report him to Chertoff, or should I?
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 06:25 PM by leveymg
He appears to be making a bomb threat against a country that we're not at war with, doesn't he? Indicates a desire to inflict mass casualties, regardless of the certain death of millions of civilians.

This puts him squarely within the capital crimes penalties of the 1996 Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act, don't you think? We have probable cause right there.

Let's pick him up, tonight. I'll call the US Attorney's office.

31. We'll have to use the Gulfstream for that. Is it available tonight?
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 07:07 PM by leveymg
Yes. It's in North Carolina. We can land in Lynchburg Municipal by 9:00 and bundle up Jerry - yes, bring the oversized restraints. He's that big. Then off to Virginia Beach, ETA 10:45. Last hop to La Guardia to board Chuckles, 0-100.

Where do we have our best interrogators now? Uzbekistan? No, they went commie again. Egypt? No, they don't have the cultural sensitivity for this bunch. Salt Lake City? Perfect. We'll drop off there by 4am, and can go on and catch the last act at the Copa in Vegas.

Does that sound like a plan? Woohoo! Roll credits, cue theme song, "Party tonight!"

(BTW: I think we just sketched out the script outline for "Blues Brothers, 2006". This country's really gone to shit with frightening speed, hasn't it?)

33. Yes, with a few alterations.
We can load the toads off at the back of the Mormon Tabernacle, where John Smith and Brigham Young will take them into custody. :rofl:

How about we go on a peyote quest in Zion National Park, THEN go to Vegas in an old squad car with the roof removed... ala Hunter S. Thompson... and throw some music by the Funky Meters into the mix. :D

9. Did Bill forget to take his meds this morning?
Have the voices in his head returned?

People who advocate blowing a nation off the face of the earth are either seriously distrubed or are war criminals. Which one is it, Bill?

12. Some of you may lose your lives for Bill's insane plan
But that's a risk O'Reilly is willing to take. Tough-talkin' Bill seems to apple up whenever it's his ass on the line. As long as his employer is there to bail him out with a truckload of cash, he's as bellicose as they come. But when it's him having to take a risk? Gone like a fart in a windstorm.

19. War Pimp G W Bush Calls Iran Grave Threat- Video
Mar. 10 - U.S. President Bush called Iran an ''issue of grave national security concern'' during a press conference to a national newspapers group.

This after the U.N. Security Council, which has the power to impose sanctions, sent in a report this week saying it could not verify that Iran's atomic activities were purely peaceful.

''We want the Iranians to see that the world is speaking with one voice when it comes to their capacity to develop a nuclear weapon,'' Bush said.

Bush also said he was concerned about the message being sent to Middle Eastern allies by the collapse of efforts by a Dubai company to manage major U.S. ports. ''UAE is a committed ally, in the war on terror. They are a key partner for our military in a critical region,'' Bush said.

Speaking to the newspaper group a day after the DP World ports deal fell apart, Bush also pledged to work with members of Congress on how to improve the process that led his administration to approve the transaction.

21. Um, yeah, Billy, that just EXEMPLIFIES sanity to me!
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 06:05 PM by geniph
Blowing up millions of innocent men, women and children who've done nothing whatever to you. Yup, that's the very essence of sanity.

I really think maybe his speech sounded better in the original German.

Perhaps it's time we stopped complaining about the fool here and started sending letters to Fox' advertisers. The man is clearly in need of professional help. He should be taken off the air before his head just explodes like one of the Martians in Mars Attacks.

...come to think of it, his big giant head looks an awful lot like one of the fake heads the Martian woman wore to get into the White House in that movie! OK, who's going to call his show and try playing Slim Whitman?

35. Standard Protocol These Days
The 48 Hour Media-blitz for War with Iran

By Mike Whitney

03/10/06 "ICH" -- -- In the last 48 hours all the major players in the Bush administration have issued statements warning of the impending danger of Iran. Cheney blasted the Islamic regime saying there would be meaningful consequences if it refuses to comply with international demands to stop its nuclear program.

Condoleezza Rice said, We face no greater challenge from a single country than Iran This is a country that seems determined, it seems, to develop a nuclear weapon in defiance of the international community that is determined that they should not get one.

Donald Rumsfeld warned at a press conference on Wednesday, I will say this about Iran. They are currently putting people into Iraq to do things that are harmful to the future of Iraq. We know it, and it is something that they, I think, will look back on as having been an error in judgment.

Bush chimed in too, Iran must not have a nuclear weapon. The most destabilizing thing that can happen in this region and in the world is for Iran to have a nuclear weapon. And then there was Bolton, the most vehement of all, saying that the Security Council should issue a vigorous response to Irans nuclear ambitions or the United States might have to consider other steps. Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns said, Its going to be incumbent on our allies around the world to show that they are willing to act.

32. WTF is it with the acceptability of this kind of hate in the US??
I moved to the UK in 94, returned several years later. And of all the things that had changed for the worse in this country with the Repug ascension, I was least prepared for the 24/7 hate that had gained acceptance on the airwaves here while I was gone.

NEVER EVER did I expect to return and find scum like O'Reilly HUGELY POPULAR. We watched him in the UK sometimes. Put him down to a blip on the radar. Outrageous in the Limpball/Stern sense, bound to have a few followers among the ignorant rebellious youth.

But NO! He's only one of many, and ADULTS idolize them all!!

I just don't understand. Someone please explain to me why sadistic hate-mongers like O'Reilly and Coulter and Malkin and Hannity and Crosby and Scarborough and -- jesus the list goes on and on, pick a cable news channel -- why they weren't pilloried the first time they drooled their hate on air. Hung, burned, tarred and feathered, run out of town on the rail.

The America I remember wouldn't have hesitated. These hate-filled cretins represent NOTHING American. And yet they SURVIVE. Unevolved plankton spewing their ignorant crap day in and out AND PEOPLE APPLAUD THEM...and (S)ELECT PRESIDENTS BASED ON WHAT THEY SAY!!!

What happened? Yeah, Bush** and the RW nuts came to power. But what happened to American decency? Did I miss some inverting of the space-time continuum?? Did aliens come and suck the values out of this country while I was gone, suddenly making it A-okay to give these mental midgets their own programs so they can inflict their venom and barbaric views nationally? Why aren't they attacked outside their studios or arrested for hate crimes??

Blow the entirety of Iran off the map? When did indiscriminate HATE and VIOLENCE become an acceptable, appropriate American value to be flaunted on tv??

WTF has happened to my country!!! I'm ASHAMED of it!!!
