If You’re Not VERY Afraid You Haven't Been Paying Attention!
THE BAD NEWS
In late September, The Nation magazine reported that the Pentagon had “moved up the deployment of a major "strike group" of ships, including the nuclear aircraft carrier Eisenhower as well as a cruiser, destroyer, frigate, submarine escort and supply ship, to head for the Persian Gulf, just off Iran's western coast.” Now, Buzzflash.com reports that the carrier group has already sailed and is scheduled to arrive in the vicinity of Iran around October 21, at the same time as a second flotilla of minesweepers and other ships.
And, thanks to the complicit corporate media, most of America had no idea this was happening.
In fact, we may be only weeks away from total disaster. Sometime before the November elections the madmen in the WH may very well launch a major air attack on suspected nuclear facilities Iran. Special ops have been waging covert actions in Iran for more than a year and Karl Rove has promised us all an ‘October surprise.’ But most telling of all is that the party of George W. Bush and cartel is in a serious political freefall. They cannot maintain their power in this coming election without some major intervening event that would once again instill fear and confusion in the minds of the American public (that is if you don’t count the massive election fraud that is taking place in our nation!)
And most of America, so immersed in the Foley Follies, hasn’t noticed a thing.
For a long while, right before IM sex took over the airways, the corporate media played and replayed their latest Bushco infomercials demonizing the villain du jour, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The usual band of pundits hammered home the message that Iran was out to nuke us all into oblivion while financing hordes of terrorists who hate us for our freedom. Network after network assures as that we’d better get them before they get us.
North Korea demanded equal time this week by testing some sort of nuclear bomb. But as luck would have it, the GOP debacle took center stage and few Americans were building fallout bunkers to protect them from Kim Jong Il. The terror trap was sprung, but it had a damaging rusty squeak.
But as usual, most of America hasn’t noticed a thing.
Never mind that Iraq and Afghanistan continue to smolder in the smoke of Bush’s wars. Never mind the chaos, the deaths, the kidnappings, the corruption and the daily horrors that are no longer newsworthy. Never mind that Lebanon is still mourning its dead. What matters is that election time is just over the horizon, and it’s time to sell Americans a new enemy and a new war.
Never mind that Iran can destroy us without launching a single nuclear weapon. Check your maps, folks. If President Ahmadinejad moves to close the Strait of Hormuz – Iran will control the flow of oil and choke our economy in a nanosecond. Never mind that brighter and saner minds than George Bush are warning of the dire consequences of a military strike against Iraq. Never mind all that. PNAC rules the roost and the best laid plans of neocons must not be thwarted. Never mind the consequences…. Just never mind.
Never mind, because all that matters is the need to make the people really afraid, and really submissive and really malleable so they’ll once again buy in to another war for God and Empire.
But, never mind all the smoke and mirrors. Most of America hasn’t noticed a thing.
