Bored Condi Calls For Attacking Iran, Because What Else Is There To Do

by Wonkette Jr.

Original cartoon by DSF. You're welcome.America’s most lovable war criminal, Condoleezza Rice, likes only one thing more than hawking her new book, and that’s warmongering. So now that she’s been removed from the White House (too late), and is back to being a regular old academic-type person, with a new book, what do you suppose she’s doing with all her free time? Why, warmongering, of course! Recently, for example, she called up an Israeli newspaper to demand that everybody attack and kill Iran. What could go wrong? Then she crapped on the Arab Spring for good measure.

In a doom-laden phone interview with the Jerusalem Post, Condi wasted no time calling for throats to be slit. The story’s lead paragraph begins with this utterance:

“The Iranians are seeking a nuclear weapon and are a poster child for terror, supporting it abroad. This is the single most dangerous state in international politics…. It is time for regime change.”

Boom, just like that. No hi, I’m Condi and I play piano – none of that. Just let’s all go over and Fuck Iran, right now.

Predictably, and like her fellow war criminal Donald Rumsfeld, who also has a book (’tis the season), Condi also attempted to claim that the numerous war crimes committed by the Bush Administration were in some way justified. Yawn.

Oh, and what about the Arab Spring, which has toppled dictators and brought hope to millions of oppressed people across the Middle East?

“We should remember that the issue is that freedom and democracy is not the same thing… They have justifiably overthrown authoritarian regimes, but they now have a long process of turning that into democratic institutions.”

In other words, just because a brutal despot has been removed, and a new government installed in its place, that doesn’t mean you can just say “Mission Accomplished” and act like the job’s over. You break it you buy it. [Jerusalem Post]

Hi, I'm Condoleeza Rice. You might remember me from such administrations as the previous one and the next one. When I'm not living out every Emo kid's dream of trying to kill everyone in the whole world I'm giving crazed Zionists the reach-around.

Rice, who is once more a professor at Stanford, explained that her administration’s long-term goal for Iraq was as a robust US ally.
“We had the belief strategically in an Iraq that is an ally and friend of the US, doesn’t threaten its neighbors and would shift the regional balance [of power],” she said.
What, you thought we meant that business about promoting democracy, finding WMD's, preventing terrorism, or whatever other excuses we came up with were the real reason? No, we were just lonely and wanted to make a new friend, and we figured there's no better way to get a new pal than to send the troops and bombs…

coolhandnuke November 21, 2011 at 6:47 pm

If there is such a being as academic karma, may She direct one of Andrew Luck's errant bombs into Rice's thick skull.

Condi, meet John Pike. Pike, meet Condi Rice.

"President Ahmadinejad, could you tell us the title of the intelligence memo you read?"
"I believe it was 'Condaleeza Rice Determined to Strike Iran'."
"And why did you not act upon this memo?"
"It was a historical document, not a warning."

Negropolis November 22, 2011 at 12:04 am

Oh, that is a HUGE win.

Master Janitor V572 November 21, 2011 at 6:32 pm

She started with the NYT op-ed page and worked her way down, through LA Times, Chicago Tribune, Des Moines Register and at last only the Jerusalem Post was willing to listen to her self-justifying twaddle about why we need to kill more Browns. Hope they didn't pay her.

nounverb911 November 21, 2011 at 6:32 pm

Condi should ride the first bomb down, just like Major "King" Kong did.

anniegetyerfun November 21, 2011 at 6:34 pm

This was neatly coordinated with Ehud Barack's recent statements about "all options" being "on the table" in regard to Iran. I love that kind of talk, because what they mean by "all options" is "bombs."

Chichikovovich November 21, 2011 at 7:09 pm

I wish someone would just say: Really? All options? For example even peaceful overtures and negotiation without preconditions is on the table?

anniegetyerfun November 21, 2011 at 7:12 pm

"Oh, sorry, did we say "all"? Because we meant "some". And we'll leave it at "some" because we have a variety of bombs that we can use."

Lionel[redacted]Esq November 21, 2011 at 7:23 pm

Yes, but did you think about how many different kinds of bombs there are to drop? The options are almost limitless!

Negropolis November 22, 2011 at 12:06 am

At the moment, Israel is basically threatening the United States with starting another war in that region. They know Barry wants no fucking part of it, but they are going to try and shame him into complicity. Good luck with that, you bastards. If the neo-cons want a war with Iran, why don't they get the fuck out of this country and go live in Israel?

anniegetyerfun November 22, 2011 at 1:56 am

Yup. I've been watching this one fairly closely, and I know that there is nothing that Israel wants more than to bomb Iran. Iran's behavior is mostly aimed at Saudi Arabia, so my guess is that SA is working closely with Israel to try to keep shit in flames. Both of those governments benefit as long as the Middle East is in turmoil.

nounverb911 November 21, 2011 at 6:35 pm

Condi needs to get herself laid.

Generation[redacted] November 21, 2011 at 7:24 pm

She passed her sell-by date sometime during the Clinton administration. But I'd still hit that.

That Condi — always one regime change short of a utopia.

"I am become Rice, destroyer of worlds."

Chichikovovich November 21, 2011 at 7:25 pm

Thanks BTF – when you pointed me toward the Hindu scriptures, I made a real find.

Just discovered! A lost passage from the Devi Mahatmyam
Original known text:
Out of the surface of her (Durga's) forehead, fierce with frown, issued suddenly Kali of terrible countenance, armed with a sword and noose. Bearing the strange khatvanga (skull-topped staff ), decorated with a garland of skulls, clad in a tiger's skin, very appalling owing to her emaciated flesh, with gaping mouth, fearful with her tongue lolling out, having deep reddish eyes, filling the regions of the sky with her roars, falling upon impetuously and slaughtering the great asuras in that army, she devoured those hordes of the foes of the devas.

Kali destroys Raktabija by sucking the blood from his body and putting the many Raktabija duplicates in her gaping mouth. Pleased with her victory, Kali then dances on the field of battle, stepping on the corpses of the slain. Her consort Shiva lies among the dead beneath her feet

New passage discovered: "Then Kali encountered the goddess Condi, emerging from the rice fields. I thought I told you stop bugging me you bloodthirsty demon, Kali cried. Such hunger for carnage as you display [or perhaps: as you spit from your eyes] even I cannot abide."

memzilla November 21, 2011 at 6:38 pm

Condi, you've got as much credibility talking about foreign policy as Newt Gingrich does talking about monogamy and faithfulness.

How about we start with regime change on Capitol Hill, you war-mongering bag of panderf**ktardity?

Blueb4sunrise November 21, 2011 at 6:44 pm

Well there's war crimes trials starting for Bangladesh (1971) and Khmer Rouge (1975). We just have to wait a little bit. Let's start with Henry the K.

mannacler November 21, 2011 at 6:45 pm

O course we should Condi because the two wars that you had a part in launching have worked out so well.

swordfis November 21, 2011 at 6:48 pm

I'm not sure I really understand the difference between freedom and democracy, but perhaps participants in the Arab Spring might be left to work it out on their own. Oh, wait – democracy is when I get to vote for one of two candidates who don't represent my interests at all; freedom is when I'm pepper-sprayed for sitting on the sidewalk.

flamingpdog November 21, 2011 at 6:48 pm

Recently, for example, she called up an Israeli newspaper to demand that everybody attack and kill Iran.

Jeezus, Condi, please leave the drunk dialing to Ginnie Thomas in the future, OK?

RadiosTyrone November 21, 2011 at 6:50 pm

Master Janitor V572 November 21, 2011 at 7:30 pm

Can't some Wonketteer comfort this poor lonely woman? Or just shove his cock in her mouth to shut her up, for freedom?

I'm thinking that there's a certain GOP Presidential candidate who might make her an offer.

Wait… "Condoleeza"? That doesn't sound like an AMERICAN name.

And here is an astonishing true fact (the best kind of fact) about Condi: she once was engaged to three-time-Pro-Bowler, two-time-league-leading punt returner Rick Upchurch of the Denver Broncos, presumably while she was a advancing the frontiers of human knowledge at University of Denver.

Rotundo_ November 21, 2011 at 7:49 pm

So is she able to travel outside the US, or is she in the "North and South America Only" club like Dubya and Cheney and Rummy and the gang? Maybe since she was only on the diplomatic front, and pretty clueless in general she isn't in danger of being busted if she sets foot in continental Europe. If that's the case why doesn't she take the pension, get a nice little flat in Paris and play jazz in some bar somewhere, it would have to be better than being an apologist for the worst presidential administration in history.

dadanarchist November 21, 2011 at 7:53 pm

If there was justice in this world someone would black bag her and leave her ass in the Nigerian delta and see how much those folks appreciated her long years of service for Chevron.

Way better, for sure, for those who don't have to sleep knowing that they represent the apotheosis of earthly evil. Condi's ilk, however, are doomed to wander the earth in an unending and doomed quest for absolution.

It's been too quiet. I wondered when Condi would rear its ugly head.

Lionel[redacted]Esq November 21, 2011 at 8:46 pm

For all of those who keep saying that Obama has just been Bush-lite. Please re-read Ms. Rice's comments, and those of Rumsfeld, Cheney, Bolton, Yu, etc. etc. etc. and look at the winding down of Iraq, and Afghanistan, our actions in Libya, the passing of health care and end of DADT, etc. etc. etc.

Yeah, I wish Obama would have more of a spine at times, but with a congress where the Republicans will do anything to stop anything that Obama even looks at, and enough Democrats are barely to the left of the GOP to give you shaky majorities at best, he has done pretty good. Plus, can you imagine where we would be at if McCain, or, worse, Romney/Gingrich/Perry/Cain/Santorum/Bachmann were in charge?

Obama is not perfect, and I wish he would show a little Teddy Roosevelt/FDR/Truman in him, but, Christ, look at what the alternatives would have been/could possibly be. Look at what the trend lines were on the economy before Obama got to work. Things are not peachy, but they are at least not going off a cliff anymore.

user-of-owls November 21, 2011 at 9:33 pm

That passel of cunts she ran with is still rooting around for a quagmire to drown what's left of this country in, the bloodier and more cataclysmic, the better. And Barry just cold keeps on actually making the US safer (oh christ, I'm gonna get if for that) by constructing foreign policy on the basis of rational self-interest rather than a desire to sate the Hobbesian instincts of the conservative mob. So yeah, Republicans, go ahead and try to win by convincing US Americans that what we really need is another and even more potentially disastrous military adventure. Really, bring that on.

BTW, I wonder why Iran would even want nukes, right? I mean, they are only wedged in by two nations that we've overthrown, and who we've been threatening since before forever.

Those fuckers are doing exactly what Pakistan did…except that we're all passive-aggressively buddy-buddy with Pakistan…because they have nukes. Watch, when Iran gets nukes, and as soon as some "moderate" is elected to their presidency, they'll be a new "ally."
