On the brink of war
The world watches and waits as the Middle East teeters ever-closer to full-fledged war, this time between nuclear powers.
|After Hamas defended a deadly suicide bombing Monday, Israel's U.N. ambassador warned that recent statements by the Palestinian government, Iran and Syria "are clear declarations of war, and I urge each and every one of you to listen carefully and take them at face value."|
It's a pity that the Maureen Dowd, Leonard Pitts, and Richard Cohen posse can't put down their Rummy-bats for even a second to consider the truly breathtaking events occurring in the Middle East. That would involve marshalling at least a dozen neurons apiece into a mesh devoted to intellectual honesty. And therefore it has as much chance of happening as Richard Burton returning from the dead to perform in MTV's "Yo Mamma".
In fact, this egregious crew will be among the first screaming bloody murder after the first atomic weapon detonates. And then their baying, blaming voices will be drowned in a crescendo of newly converted Republican defense-hawks.
|Ambassador Dan Gillerman cautioned that a new "axis of terror" — Iran, Syria and the Hamas-run Palestinian government — was sowing the seeds of the first world war of the 21st century.|
Yes, it's an all-star team of extremist, despotic nutcases devoted exclusively to mass murder. The latest Hamas terror bombing used rat-poison-coated shrapnel to ensure fatal infections. But, according to the Kos Kidz and the rest of the barking moonbats, the real enemy is the Bush administration. Would that they would expend one-tenth their energy and attention towards real -- not imagined -- enemies.
Somehow they ignore or gloss over the Iranian regime's incessant threats to utterly destroy all of "Anglo-Saxon civilization". Which would include nuking the U.S. and Britain. Oh, and I almost forgot, wiping Israel off the face of the earth. As a quick reminder, let's tune in to Iran's "President" Ahmadinejad: "Is it possible for us to witness a world without America and Zionism? …you had best know that this… goal [is] attainable…"
But, no, the mediacrats can't bother with this story. It's not "big" enough for them while Rummy, W, and Cheney are on the loose, pounding them like bongo drums in election after election.
|"A dark cloud is looming above our region, and it is metastasizing as a result of the statements and actions by leaders of Iran, Syria, and the newly elected government of the Palestinian Authority," he said.|
And the mediacrats: Dowd, Pitts, Cohen, and company. Couldn't. Care. Less.
