Out the Window
The War drums for Iran are getting louder.
It doesn't matter if it sounds crazy.
We have thrown sanity and morality out the window.
Here is an audio recording of Noam Chomsky's speech as he spoke to an over-capacity crowd in BU's Osterhout Concert Theater.
"World in peril"
There are dire consequences to the current direction of the U.S. foreign policy, said Noam Chomsky in a speech Saturday at Binghamton University. Among those consequences, he said, is a nuclear Armageddon."
Under the current U.S. policies, a nuclear exchange is inevitable," the 77-year-old MIT professor said in his presentation, "Imminent Crises: Paths Toward Solutions."

Logic out the window at the White House
By Gwynne Dyer
The biggest pitfall in predicting the behavior of radical groups like the inner circle of the Bush administration is that you keep telling yourself that they would never actually do whatever it is they’re talking about. Surely they must realize that acting like that would cause a disaster. Then they go right ahead and do it.
“(The Iranians) must know everything is on the table and they must understand what that means,” U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton told a group of visiting British politicians last week. “We can hit different points along the line. You only have to take out one part of their nuclear operation to take the whole thing down.”
In other words, he was calmly proposing an illegal attack on a sovereign state, possibly involving nuclear weapons. Bolton knew his words would be leaked, so maybe it was just deliberate posturing to raise the pressure on Iran.
But on Sunday, addressing the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in Washington, Bolton repeated the threat: “The longer we wait to confront the threat Iran poses, the harder and more intractable it will become to solve… We must be prepared to rely on comprehensive solutions and use all the tools at our disposal to stop the threat…” He may really mean it -- and no one in the White House has told him to shut up.
With the U.S. army already mired in Iraq, the Bush administration lacks the ground strength to invade Iran, a far larger country. The National Security Strategy statement of September 2002 declared a new doctrine of “preemptive” wars in which the U.S. would launch unprovoked attacks against countries that it feared might hurt it in the future, and in January 2003 that doctrine was elaborated into the military strategy of “full spectrum global strike.”

Iran threatens "harm and pain"

With the stage now set for a high-stakes U.N. Security Council debate next week on possible sanctions for Iran's nuclear program, Iran on Wednesday warned the United States that it, too, can inflict "harm and pain" and hinted its weapon could be oil.
The sharp statement, which followed a warning this week by Vice President Dick Cheney that Iran could face "meaningful consequences," came on a day when the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency concluded a series of meetings on Iran and forwarded its report to the Security Council."
Earlier this morning, an old friend sent this:
