Stephen Zunes writes:

"The Washington Post reported that an initially hesitant President Ford was assured by his advisers that Iran was interested only in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. Ford's Defense Secretary was Donald Rumsfeld, his Chief of Staff was Dick Cheney and his man in charge of nonproliferation efforts at the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency was Paul Wolfowitz."

When are those who are responsible for creating the instability in the first place going to be held accountable for their past mistakes??

3. blowback
All these guys do is manufacture BLOWBACK.

They create our enemies and then go to War on them.

I like where Cheney didn't do a goddamned thing with his "terrorism task force" in 2001 and now states that if we had indiscriminate spying on US citizens back then 9-11 may have been prevented.

9-11 WOULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED if Gore was allowed to defeat Bush by the Supreme court!

The gaul of these evil men.....

4. Why does everyone take up the Bush talking points?
Edited on Tue Feb-07-06 02:59 PM by LaPera
If Bush talks about it, its a lie and a diversion.

On March 20th oil rich Iraq will switch from the to Dollar the Euro for their petro...this is outrageous and can not be a trend that is allowed from BushCo's point of view...The world has always traded oil for dollars and BushCo controls the dollar.

When Saddam Hussein went with the Euro and decided not to trade in Dollars, Iraq was invaded. Now the US controls Iraqi oil and its being traded for dollars again.

Venezuela, is now trading in Euros and ignoring the Dollar as well, and course Hugo Chavez is being called every name in the book, dictator, communist, etc...and it's only a matter of time before the US plans another Coup against Chavez and gets Venezuela back to trading their oil for dollars again!!!

These bullshit reasons like nuclear power and weapons are exactly what BushCo wants people talking about...as long as their is discussion about nuclear in Iran, WMD in Iraq and Chavez being a dictator...the administration will always win with the bullshit talking points (as proven with the invasion of Iraq).

Be the real reason, greed and to get the whole world trading in dollars must never be allowed into debate, because then people would see right through all BushCo's rhetoric, lies and bullshit propaganda!!!!

Still Rove, Cheney are good...they have everyone talking about exactly what they want them to Iran and it's nuclear power.

Get real Iran knows it would be suicidal to ever use nuclear weapons. The US would blow Iran off the face of the earth and then keep their oil... Iran and everyone else know this. now here I am talking about the same bullshit talking points.

In essence, Iran is about to commit a far greater offense than Saddam Hussein's conversion to the euro for Iraq's oil exports in the fall of 2000. Beginning in March 2006, the Tehran government has plans to begin competing with New York's NYMEX and London's IPE with respect to international oil trades using a euro-based international oil-trading mechanism. The proposed Iranian oil bourse signifies that without some sort of US intervention, the euro is going to establish a firm foothold in the international oil trade. Given U.S. debt levels and the stated neoconservative project of U.S. global domination, Tehran's objective constitutes an obvious encroachment on dollar supremacy in the crucial international oil market"
