Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

it's the oil, stupid...

Iran. Iran has quite a bit of oil. Al-Jazeera reports:
China's oil giant Sinopec Group has signed a $70 billion oil and natural gas agreement with Iran.
You might remember that Iraq got invaded and a few cynical people said it was because Saddam was pissed off with George The Elder and so he was selling his oil to China rather than America. And you see, this did not suit George The Younger and his Texan cohorts, and so a further 100,000 Iraqi civilians had to die in order to re-secure America's oil "interests".

And now, surprise, surprise, America is sabre-rattling about Iran. You think it's because Iran is really a threat to the world? Grow a brain! An invasion of Iran is a part of America's oil-grabbing strategy to prevent the free trade of oil with China. Trust me. I know how these lunatics think. However, it could also be a precursor to a U.S. war on China a bit further down the track (say five to ten years.) Either way, headaches for everyone except the profit-mongers...

Pity the Iranian people. Hundreds of thousands of them will die if America is coming to get their oil. If you were the leader of Iran, wouldn't you be going flat out to crank up a nuclear weapons program if you had lots and lots of historical evidence that it's the one sure thing that acts as a deterrent against the resources-thieving Yanks?

In terms of nuclear powers already killing heaps and heaps of people with virtual impunity, the top three are:

1. America. (because of oil)
2. Russia (because of oil)
3. Israel (because they are "the chosen people" come to reclaim what's "theirs" after a short absence of a mere 2000 years)

There's your Axis Of Evil right there, guys. Start with them and work down from there.

Get behind the U.N. and sideline these crazies, is all I can say...

While I respect the "notion" of the United Nations, I hardly think that at this stage of the game, it has either the power or the will to challenge the U.S. If and when it does, Bush just ignores them anyway.

Let's face it Gerry, most of the world is afraid of the U.S., and under Bush, it should be! This lunatic of a leader is clueless when it comes to any kind of world unity or global community. That's why his Secretary of State Colin Powell won't be around even if Bush wins four more years in the White House. While Powell has been a "supporter" of his President, few know better than he does, just how narrow and reckless Bush and his fellow thugs are.

I beg to differ. Yes the UN needs a lot of work done on it, but it's a conference of many nations. Often, those nations have ignored America's will. That's why the "Coalition of the Willing" coudn't get the necessary UN resolution passed to authorise a war with Iraq.

Bush has learned that he needs the rest of the world to support him or he's a lame duck. And he's resorted to pleading and grovelling to get the UN to bail him out in Iraq.

I think the UN could stand up to Bush. In fact, it did, via the non-resolution to authorise war.

And now the rest of the world has seen a bit more of America's true colours, they've lost credibility in the UN. I think this will show up with even fewer countries in future willing to back America, and a lot more will be enboldened to speak out against the shit America is imposing on the rest of the world.

Nothing personal, Jeff.

Bush is not a "lame" duck (lame. yes), Bush is a WILD duck! He has ignored the U.N. before and he will do it again and the world has NO CHOICE but to stand back, quietly flip him the bird behind his back and run for cover.
