We must wait another 8 to 15 monthsHOORAY, WORLD WAR III IS CANCELLED POSTPONED: “In a July 25 story, The Associated Press reported that former CIA Director Michael Hayden told CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ that U.S. military action against Iran now ‘seems inexorable.’ A spokeswoman for Hayden responded that he made his reference to Iran’s push toward acquiring a nuclear program and not to military action.” [AP via Regret the Error]

oh good. I was hoping President Hayden would reconsider.

SayItWithWookies July 27, 2010 at 11:03 am

Thank you Mr. Hayden for that redumption of your previously ambirhombous lugubriations.

So I’ve dropped out of society and been stockpiling ammo, bottled water and canned food for no reason? Thanks for nothing!

I wuz born from some cross-fired yellow cake
And I howled, Ahmadinejad is such a pain
But it’s all right, in fact it’s a gas
Yes it’s all right, I’m uranyl hexafluoride
I’m a gas, gas, gas

a CIA director who obfuscates? whoa, Nelly!

but seriously, just put Lieberman in a bomber and point him in the general direction.

Just as long as all options are still on the table. A very big table indeed.

Former CIA director, please note. The current guy is an Calabrian grocer’s son from Monterey, and said on those same Sunday wankfests the other week that there are about 50 al qaeda members in Afghanistan. That’s why we’ve got 130,000 military and Jah-Weh knows how many contractors there. So the level of craziness has not declined much. In fact it’s spreading.

One has to remember that the Saudis, Kuwait staff and other Sunni’s are not overjoyed at the prospect of upstart Shia’s with atom bombs. These lines have yet to be drawn. Haydn wouldn’t have gone into this, since he is from the CIA and thus doesn’t know anything about it. Besides, he’s busy working on a cute children’s book called “Everything I Know, I Read in the Mossad Report.”

Too late. Slime Pickens is on his way.

Please, lets be real, we are so gonna nuke Iran. Israel’s chief US propaganda agents, Kristol and Krauthammer, and the Israeli foreign policy propaganda organizations that have penetrated US government (PNAC, the Cheneys), they will never rest, nor cease their struggle, until we attack Iran for the greater glory of Israel.

Prommie July 27, 2010 at 12:07 pm

Hell, look what it says over at libtard central, huffpo, today (and I didn’t read this till after what I just wrote before): “It’s still summer but the word in Washington is that, come fall, the neocon crowd that helped lie us into Iraq will be out trying to do the same thing with Iran. Commentary, the magazine which invented neoconservatism, is already announcing that sanctions have failed and it’s time for the next step. And this neocon manifesto argues that war is bad, but a lot better than no war. Of course, nobody takes Commentary seriously (it is too open about its “Greater Israel first” agenda). But it still is valuable because of what it tells you about neocon thinking.

But Jeff Goldberg of the Atlantic is something else. He writes for Atlantic and Atlantic (both the magazine and the blog made famous by Andrew Sullivan) matters. In late August, the influential Goldberg will be coming out with a cover story urging the United States to attack Iran so that Israel doesn’t have to. Goldberg, an American who served in the Israeli army as a guard at a Palestinian prison camp, is about as close to the “pro-Israel” lobby as one can be without actually working at headquarters.

He also was, as Harper’s reported in an important piece, a key advocate of the Iraq war, who recklessly spread some of the lies that helped create the debacle that cost so many thousands of lives.”

dex July 27, 2010 at 12:16 pm

i’m not quite sure which bothers me more – his warmongering, or that he’s unable to correcly use the word ‘inexorable.’

proudgrampa July 27, 2010 at 12:22 pm

[re=626388]Prommie[/re]: Jesus Christ, Prommie. You sure know how to cheer me up! Fact is, given the lack of sophistication the Obama administration is showing lately, I am afraid that they will get tricked into attacking yet another country in the Middle East.

Time to restock the liquor cabinet.

We are so freakin’ doomed.

Mad Brahms July 27, 2010 at 12:22 pm

[re=626331]snideinplainsight[/re]: I think he was looking for “inevitable”. Technically, the *meaning* of inexorable isn’t too far off, but the usage is so horrible I had to read it like three times to figure out what the hell he was trying to say.

V572625694 July 27, 2010 at 12:31 pm

[re=626388]Prommie[/re]: All wars everywhere, all the time. Makes sense to Xe. Duzit tuh yew?

War … War never changes.

Hayden…..when I look at that asshole all I see is NAMBLA member, Dr. Strangelove, and someone who hates kittens and puppies.

For further illumination on how this “diplomacy” thing works, check out the flick “In The Loop.” After watching that, you’ll be ready to kiss you ass fuckety-bye.

What a great way to show up the Iranians: We will let the North Koreans have the honor of starting the next World War. Where is your god now Ahmadinejad?

Mr Blifil July 27, 2010 at 2:36 pm

After my morning coffee I often experience an inexorable push.
