Cowboys and Iranians

by MOHAMMED ALIREZA

It is a very sad day in Iranian history when an American presidential candidate needs to threaten to “obliterate” Iran so as to be elected.

The question that every Iranian needs to ask: “Why has Hillary suddenly transformed into a testes endowed nuclear warmonger?”

Is it the fact that the largest economy of the world, which is driven by the military industrial complex and uses 25% of the planets oil, has concluded that only Iran stands in its way to controlling 60% of the globe’s known petrochemical reserves?

Or, is it because it is only Iran that stands in the way of the apartheid-like behavior of the Zionists?

Surely it can’t be because of the nonsense that Ahmadinejad likes to utter because any well informed American “leader” knows he is a light weight nobody that will soon vanish into the pages of time.

So, why did Hillary suddenly decide she had to show she had bigger balls then all her rivals, even bigger than those hanging from that neurotic that sang that Beach Boys song and wants a third Bush term?

Here is a hint: follow the money.

At current prices the oil that sits below Iraqi soil is estimated to be worth over forty trillion dollars, and Iran has about the same. That’s with a “T” and twelve zeros!

For a superpower in decline, with China and India rapidly advancing into the realm of potential superpowers, and the European Union slowly eclipsing the United States, gaining control of the lifeblood of the global economy is the only path that guarantees Americas “vital national interests”, which is equivalent to the continued domination of the world’s economy.

The American Establishment would never have given Bush Cheney Inc. the green light to invade Iraq if the stakes were not so high.

The only problem is that they were sold a cheap occupation that now is approaching two trillion dollars in costs, which in actual fact are not costs, but a transfer of American taxpayer money into the coffers of the military industrial complex.

Obliterating Iran has many benefits for the American Empire. It clears the path for controlling the planets remaining significant petrochemical reserves, which therefore guarantees that America’s addiction to oil need not go into withdrawal.

Obliterating Iran also has the added benefit of removing the only remaining obstacle for Zionists from placing the Palestinians into reservations, a process that is taking place in Iraq today.

America was built through the genocide of Native Indians and the continued existence of America requires the same mindset, which the current Cowboy in Chief has put on display for all to see.

Question is will Iranians and Iraqis willingly play the part of Indians in this game of twenty first century cowboys and Indians?

And if you don’t agree with any of the above then what are those forts for that are being built in Iraq? Don’t know what forts are? Hint: They built a lot of them in “Redskin country”.
