The so-called 'Neocons', including Elliott Abrams, and Max Boot, card carrying members of the notorious "Council on Foreign Relations" are once again up to their old, and sordid tricks: The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are just not enough for these blood-thirsty bastards. Hey, I fought for our troubled country in Vietnam, and watched a lot of young soldiers die. Basically, war is about making and selling profitable weapons systems to our country, and there's a lot of money to be made. Just as during the run-up to the Iraq war, so-called 'liberals' and 'realists' at the council seem to be abandoning their traditional allies, and sidling up to 'neoconservatives' which are neither neo (meaning new), NOR conservatives in the traditional meaning of that word. So-called 'analyst' Tony Karon, on his blog, called an attempt of an aggressor to control the level of a hot conflict amid tense relations 'quite simply bizarre'. Reality check: Of course, Iran is going to retaliate, and do it painfully, over years and decades. If you have followed my blog in the past, you will also remember the Russian anti-aircraft and anti-missile system which should soon be installed in Iran. The Russians responded to our threat in completing this purchase with the words: "We do not need advice from the United States about our weapons sales." So, there!
