U.S. Funding “The Terrorists”

February 28th, 2007

Do you get it yet?

Via: New Yorker:

To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.

    Funny how we forget so soon that the U.S. was selling airplane parts to Iran (through Israel, who is supposedly so ‘threatened’ by Iran) in order for Iran to fight Iraq, who we were selling chemical weapons and spy satellite pictures to.
    The only common thread is ‘raising the price of oil’.
    Marijuana is America’s biggest cash crop, and it’s illegal here. A country of paradoxical unreal thinking, guided by the supernatural (outside of reality) visions of Moral Righteousness.

    Lifeboat won’t do any good when the oceans are boiling.
