Being An Empire Means Never Having To Speak Rationally

Iran Sanctions Are Meant to Prevent War, Bush Aides Say

"In approving far-reaching, new unilateral sanctions against Iran, President Bush signaled yesterday that he intends to pursue a strategy of gradually escalating financial, diplomatic and political pressure on Tehran, aimed not at starting a new war in the Middle East, his advisers said, but at preventing one."

What sad, twisted logic that these deluded, smug warmongers use. Apparently facing opposition from every direction in their frothing at the mouth determination to force conflict on the world, they resort to Machiavellian terminology.

Who in their right minds would consistently think they could make people do their bidding through the use of force? Nobody. This blood soaked mafia has a history of it, and every step in their efforts to get their way shows how deeply sick they are. To them up is down, war is peace, and the despicable MSM dutifully reports these unbalanced utterances as high level diplomacy.

Trade sanctions by empires are used to weaken economies, cause social problems, and turn people against their own governments. Countries under trade sanctions usually become more troubled with infighting, corruption, and violence than they ever would be without trade sanctions.

This, of course, is another subject that the corporate MSM avoids, and one of the most obvious cases is with Cuba, which has suffered from US-enforced trade sanctions for about 50 years. Whenever problems i Cuba are reported by the MSM, they are always blamed on Castro's government, and the long-standing trade sanctions are never mentioned.

And this crap absolutely won't work with Iran, and I believe the fascists know it and are only bloviating this nonsense for domestic consumption, as a lead up to some false flag provocation.
