Friday, President Bush made a statement refering to Iran as "the greatest threat to Israel", it's important to remember a couple of things. One, when Iranian president Ahmedhijhad said that Israel should be "wiped off the face of the Earth", he never suggested that Iran were to do this. he was merely responding to threats made against his country by Israel if Iran should continue it's nuclear power program. Two, Israel, which has not signed to NPT, has plenty of nukes of it's own, and could certainly nuke Iran should they try anything against them. It's that whole MAD (mutually assured destruction)thing that kept the USSR and the US from nuking each other in the Cold War. Israel has the biggest dick on the block and Iran is suffering from nuclear penis envy.
Of course, Bush never mentioned Iran as any threat to the United States. We certainly have enough nuclear weapons to keep any country in check and have proven time and time again that we're not bashful about using them. In fact, this past summer, Dick (head) Cheney even had STRATCOM draw up a contigency plan for nuking Iran should there be a terrorist attack on US soil, even if Iran was in no way linked to these attacks. If that's not a threat, then I don't know what is.
What President Ahmedhijhad is also doing is planning a conference to investigate the claims of the Holocaust. And being a Holocaust denier is rapidly becoming one of the greatest crimes in the world, next to opposing US imperialistic designs. While I may not be a student of the Holocaust, I do understand that there has been innummerable cases where one group of people has tried to wipe out another group of people. The US, for instance, has slaughtered millions of indigeonous people in order to build this great country of strip malls and strip clubs. Not to mention all the civilians we nuked in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Or in our participation in the firebombing of Dresden. Or, even the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians whose only crime was standing between the Bush regime and all that luscious oil in the ground they covet so.
In fact, I think it safe to say that the US has killed more civilians than the number of Jews that were ever were slaughtered in Nazi Germany. But the point is, why is the Holocaust more important than say, the ten million Slavs slaughtered under the brutal Communist governmentof the USSR? The millions slaughtered by Pol Pot in Cambodia? Are Jewish people more important than any other group on this planet? No. Of course not. We are just constantly reminded of their suffering everytime they commit an atrocity against the Palestinians.
Perhaps there can be a day when "Never Again!" applies to all people.
