Excuse me! I am relatively new to the intricacies of Israel and Palastine and such warrings and in fact I still get confused with the notation "I/P" (Internet Protocol? Iambic Pentameter? International Proletariat? Ah, Israel/Palestine). But might someone please tell me what Hamas has to do with Iran? For example, I am seeing douchebag's douchebag Michael Ledeen gushing about a piece in The Atlantic by douchebag's douchebag's douchebag Robert Kaplan where he sez "Israel’s attack on Gaza is, in effect, an attack on Iran’s empire, the first since its offensive on Iranian-backed Hezbollah in 2006." Um, pardon? Of all the people on whom it has been suggested Israel pawn off Gaza, Iran has not been one of them, ever, nicht wahr? And then of course there's Kristol, who said yesterday, "If Israel had yielded to Hamas and refrained from using force to stop terror attacks, it would have been a victory for Iran." And why is that? "The Iranian regime would be emboldened, and less susceptible to the pressure from the Obama administration to stop its nuclear program." Crazy! Crazy, over here, on its face! Crazy propaganda cleanup in aisle 4!
You crazy fucks! When did Iran ever have anything to do with anything? Unless perhaps it was 2006, when Dick Cheney decided that Israel's assault on southern Lebanon was going to provide a blueprint for a U.S. attack on Iran. In which case, for a whole new host of reasons, Kristol and Ledeen and Kaplan are fucking nutters! It is not 2006! We are not going to bomb Iran! Jesusy Christy Christ! Perhaps you jokers might consider crawling into the Cave of Circle Jerks and insane each other to oblivion!
