A Collective What The Fuck?

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's visit to NYC to address the UN's nuclear non-proliferation summit has spurred a slew of lies and wild accusations from politicians on this side of the aisle. So many, that indeed they must all be addressed one by one:
Keep investing in Iran and threatening our security
-Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) NY.
I'm sorry senator, but Iran poses no threat to our security. It has not been found to diverting any of it's enriched uranium away from it's nuclear power program. Moreover, we have nuclear weapons, thousands of them, which we keep as a deterrent against attack by any unfriendly nation with the knowledge that if they were to attack us first, we could completely wipe them out within a matter of minutes. We have, over the years, spent billions of dollars on this. We can hit any country on the planet. Iran cannot hit any country on the planet, because they do not possess, nor have they been found to be seeking, nuclear weapons.
“Ahmadinejad shouldn't just be protested in NYC, he should be arrested and tried for incitement to commit genocide.
-Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.)
Thankfully, we have something like Twitter these days, where our politicians can make bold statements, released in to the stream of propaganda with out ever having to be explained. I take this to be a reference to a much maligned and mistranslated statement that is not true. Pity our elected representatives are so ill-informed, but ignorance is bliss when you're making emotional statements.
“Once again, President Ahmadinejad has come to the United Nations to spout duplicitous and anti-Semitic propaganda before a world stage,”
-Jerrold Nadler (D)NY. I wonder, did Rep. Nadler receive an advanced copy of Ahmadinejad's speech? Is asking Israel to sign the NNPT and open their weapons program to IAEA inspections anti-Semitic?
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) also questioned the timing of Ahmadinejad's arrival in New York given the recent bomb scare in Time Square.
"It's sort of appalling that six blocks away at the U.N., Ahmadinejad is coming tomorrow to a conference on nuclear non-proliferation. What hypocrisy,"
-Sen Chuck Schumer (D)NY.
Did Iran plant the bomb? Or was the car bomb conveniently placed there to make this sort of association? Another false flag operation?
The demonization of President Ahmadinejad is the first step in the propaganda run up to a military strike against Iran. While I certainly don't have the most respect for the man, he hasn't been proved to be a liar. Both the IAEA and the NIE agree that Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons within it's nuclear energy program. So why all the hysteria?

All four of the assclowns quoted were Democrats. That's not very encouraging for people like me who keep hoping there's a difference between the two parties.

I especially liked "he should be arrested and tried for incitement to commit genocide." I think a certain buttwipe needs to step off his podium and buy himself a dictionary.

Like the US isn't committing genocide in Iraq, or Israel isn't committing genocide in Gaza Iran hasn't invaded anyone in 200 years. They're only a threat to their own people, like certain oil companies I could name.....

Check out David Duke's paper on Israeli false flag terror and 911.

Disclaimer: Dr. Kiss Injure is in no way, shape or form a Nazi - Neo or other-wise. I do not support Dave Duke nor am I in bed with his ilk, but he does raise some interesting points in this paper.

File under CMF - for CIA mind fuck.

We criticize Iran for violating the non proliferation treaty, but the US and all the nuclear powers are violating it by not completely dismantling their nuclear arsenals. (The corporate media conveniently leave out that part of the treaty.)
