The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

America has always been at war with Iran

Most of the news from the last month has been about the escalation of the war that Bush is planning. Bush, Lieberman, and all of the other warmongers have been saying for a long time that troops would begin their withdrawal, but that was before the elections. Now that we are safely past them, the only strategy left for prolonging our involvement in Iraq is to escalate. From what I've been able to tell, the public, the joint chiefs of staff, the Congress, the generals who have up to now been in charge of Iraq, and even crazy Oliver North are against escalation. On the other side are Bush, McCain, Lieberman, and two or three people from the American Enterprise Institute (and of course, our evil overlord Cheney). AEI includes many of the deep thinkers who got us into this mess.

But whatever. I write this morning with this bad news: that we have started the war with Iran. This morning, we landed five helicopters on the roof of the Iranian consulate building in Kurdistan, stormed the building, and took at least six Iranians captive. This is an act of war.

Starting the war now makes some sense from Cheney’s point of view. It has long been their strategy to do so many evil things at once that before any opposition can organize against Evil Action A, they are outraged over Evil Action B, and so on until outrage overload overwhelms them. So by attacking another sovereign nation as the Congress gets ready to stop escalation in Iraq, Cheney creates what he hopes is enough confusion to get away with both atrocities.

I wonder if his heart will give out before his war crimes trial is over, like Milosevic.

Let’s all pray that this does not lead to the use of nuclear weapons. Nuking a Muslim country would paint a target on all Americans, forever, in the eyes of the radicals in the world.
