Mossad to Mitt Romney: “Shut the Fuck Up”

Just what we need, another loudmouth chickenhawk trying to incite war in the Middle East. 

Mitt Romney wrote a column in the Washington Post saying Iran is “racing to build a nuclear bomb.”  Americans of the non-chickenhawk persuasion aren’t the only people who are alarmed by Romney’s saber-rattling.

Efraim Halevy, former Mossad director, said Romney’s warmongering rhetoric could become a self-fulfilling prophecy by spurring the Iranians to hurry up and develop those nuclear weapons they supposedly have, in order to deter an attack in case Romney gets elected.

Efraim Halevy said:

“If I’m sitting here in the month of March 2012 reading this, and I’m an Iranian leader, what do I understand? I have nine more months to run as fast as I can because this is going to be terrible if the other guys get in.”

He also said:  “In the effort to demolish the president, Romney is making the situation worse.”

How many American soldiers are Republican politicians willing to murder, just to make Obama a one-term president?

Funny how “inciting a riot” is a felony, but relentless demagoguery that incites a war — costing thousands of lives and billions of dollars — is perfectly legal.

An interesting piece of history!

In 1272, the Arabic Muslims invented the condom, using a goat's lower intestine.

In 1873, the British refined the idea by first taking the intestine out of the goat.

2012 - republicans want to put the intestine back into the goat.

If I was a member of the world's ruling class who just happened to be born in Iran, I'd want nukes, too.

Halevy makes a good point. It's one that anyone with a lick of sense — anyone not blinded to anything but getting what he wants — would intuit.

Here's another one, from a woman who called Thom Hartmann's show a couple of days back. She said her brother works at Los Alamos Nuclear Laboratory. He tells her the engineers and scientists there aren't worried about Iran getting a nuclear bomb. What they are very worried about is the design and construction of Iran's nuclear reactor. The Los Alamos crowd sees it as woefully inadequate and very dangerous. Think Fukushima-type meltdown.

Mr. C: LOL. Where would those primitive Arabs be without the Brits to show them how it's done?

Jerry: Either that, or they want to put the intestine back into the American public.

Randal: I would too.

SW: That's very interesting (and not in a good way) and makes lots of sense too. A Fukushima-type meltdown from an Iranian nuclear plant -- having spent some time in Iran (in the mid 1970s), I can only say: that figures.

Chimpy showed us how many Americans they'll murder to hold onto power. And Willard is cut from that mold.

No one should put any vile act past him.

JR: You're right, Chimpy answered that question loud and clear.

I'm sure Mitt knows very little about foreign policy, and he would do whatever he thought might make more money for America. He would probably go along with pretty much whatever the Project For a New American Century told him to go along with. That group has kind of faded into the woodwork a bit since Obama took office, but they'd become quite visible once more with a Republican in the White House.

Snave: You can count on PNAC and other rightwing wacko groups coming out of the woodwork as soon as a Republican takes over the White House.
