Republicans Are Calling For U.S. Intervention in Iran

Isn't two Orwellian perpetual wars enough for this country? The war mongers, like Senator McCain and G.W. Bush think-alikes, are Christians who believe in the Bible and the afterlife.

The killing of Neda and others in Iran is an insult to reason and an insane act. Religious violence is a bad method of population control. Religion, with its emphasis on “be fruitful and multiply,” is screwing up the human experience.

Does it not say in the Quran, “do not kill innocent people”?

The only good that can come out of this protest against theocracy is Christians realizing that their religion is just as violent, just as whacky, as Islam.

Thanks, man.

My brother, Richard (HA! Same name as you, but he goes by Rick, not Rich) lives in California, but like I said, I can't go across the US border. I've never been to Florida, but would love to. Unfortunately, that ain't gonna happen. And yes, I read your DUI story, oh and I love your picture of you preaching to your "flock". Very funny!

Mac, I'd be happy to show you around Sarasota. We have the second most beautiful beach in the country—Siesta Key Beach. It would be a tight squeeze in my house, but hotels are dirt cheap. I could pick you up at Tampa International.

Is your brother in Palm Springs Florida or California?

Hey, Mac. Did you ever read my true DUI story? You can see what happens to you in the U.S They treat you liked you killed somebody. I had a six-pack under my belt. I told the cop, "I didn't want to kill any babies, Officer. I just wanted to get home from the party."

Perhaps I should have been clearer. You, Rich, and many others on this site know what your country has been doing, but most Americans haven't a clue, and neither do most Canadians. And as for the "no-fly-list", I have to go over, or around the US. I can't visit my brother in Palm Springs, or my niece in Denver. I also know a farmer in Bow Island, Alberta, who hasn't been able to visit the US since working for Oxfam in Nicaragua in the mid '80's.

Rich and Jac,
I've been following all these posts, and, as a Canadian, with an Internationalist past, I find it refreshing to follow the posts of two 'yanks' who seem to actually know what has been going on in the world with regard to American foreign policy. I would like to point out though that you need not look over sea for American foreign policy greed and fascist thuggery, just look south. Nor has the US imperialist oppression always been about oil. In some countries it has been about protection, and supremacy, of American fruit, veg, meat and cotton supplies. And now witness the military coup in Honduras, all of who's top officers were trained in the US, armed by the US, and financed by the US.
Any questions as to why so many people in the world hate the US? I don't, as I have witnessed it first hand. Even though Obama is a huge difference over Bush, even Obama's people have continued the bullshit, even about Canada having allowed the 9/11 sickos to enter the US from Canada (none of them entered the US across our border).

Jac, check him out on youtube. He's a great man.

Jac, when I was growing up, if you made a hundred dollars a week, you were doing pretty good. Cops made about $95. I have a friend at my nudist resort that used to play for the New York Titans, the previous Jets. He had to play both ways, offense and defense, and was paid $300 bucks a game. Just to give you an idea of the pay scale in those days.

So, when I was driving General Ansari, a Franklin seemed like a pain in the ass for the guy to carry in his pocket. What a disillusionment it was for me as a kid. Money wasn’t real.

A little tidbit: General Norman Schwarzkoff’s father, General Normal Schwarzkoff, Sr. founded and engineered SOVAK, one of the sinister secret polices ever.

My former teacher, Prof. Phil Zimbardo, once told my class, “the anal compulsive personality will always rise to the top like cream.” Like father, like son.

May I call you Jacky?

Dig this: In younger days I lived in NYC but I’m here in Sarasota, Florida, for the last 20 years. I had a lot of jobs in my time and one of them was a limo driver and the Waldorf and Regency Hotels —fun job.

One of our best customers was General Ansari, the Shah favorite enforcer. He was to the Shah was General Tor was to Ferdinand Marcos.

Ansari and his family passed petrodollars like it was diarrhea. One time I spent the whole day in front of the Waldorf waiting to take the kid to the dentist. That’s it for an all-day limo, charged by the hour.

It’s as if the Iranian powers-that-be had an agreement with the U. S. government. The U.S. buys petroleum at the going price and they in turn spend much of it here, stimulating the American economy. The job paid my bills, but it was no fun kissing the asses of spoiled, morally corrupt, vacuous and ungrateful people.

Jacqueline, I've been doing a little reseach on Operation Ajax.

the British-organized world-wide boycott of Iranian oil, ended with the signing of the Consortium Agreement of 1954. Pahlevi signed the agreement with the result that, for the first time, United States oil companies shared in the profits of Iranian oil, with the U.S. and UK evenly splitting 80% and the remainder divided between French and Dutch interests.[9]

What does that leave the Iranian people? These greedy stupid people. We're still paying for it because abuse like this is remembered for generations.
