Mark Twain by Public Doman




"Political language. . . is designed to make lies sound truthful and
murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure
wind."- George Orwell

NBC- "The White House announced new Iran sanctions Monday amid a
continuing impasse in international efforts to pressure Iran to curb its
nuclear program. President Obama issued the sanctions in an executive
order Sunday. In a pre-Super Bowl interview that afternoon, he said the
United States still seeks a diplomatic resolution to the Iranian nuclear
issue. Obama also said that he thinks Israel has not yet decided
whether it will carry out unilateral preemptive air strikes on Iran's
nuclear facilities--a development that the United States seeks to avoid.

"Any kind of additional military activity inside the Gulf is disruptive
and has a big effect on us," Obama told NBC's Matt Lauer in the
interview. "It could have a big effect on oil prices. We've still got
troops in Afghanistan, which borders Iran."

The President is fomenting a crisis where there is none, creating a new
crisis while pretending to prevent one. Sanctions are a legal definition
for a targeted blockade and a blockade is considered an act of war. The
world and the politics of the world have always been fucked, but
perhaps now, are just more fucked.

The United States is actively and deliberately pursuing an aggressive
military foreign policy. For more than a decade the United States has
declared arbitrarily the right to attack any nation or state solely
based on its own imaginary reasoning.

"In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of
us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to
win, but mainly to keep from losing completely."- Hunter S. Thompson
