Digby, bless her Wes Clark-supporting soul, just doesn't get why the DINOcrats in Congress are coming out in favor of expanding the War on Terra with Iran.
There are 102 (at last count) comments in her comment thread telling her exactly why the DINOcrats are letting Bu$hCo-Cheneyburton precipitate World War III.
Follow the money. Follow the money. Follow the money.
The answer is revealed.
Of course, if World War III actually kicks off in earnest, that cash really will be nothing but trash. But the 0.01% who own everything, including the 'Merikan government, mostly seem to ignore that. Ignoring that does not mean they're ignorant of the possibilities. It's just when class war here shifts into World War, they figure they still have most of the gold and most of the bullets.
Let's add what's been said at Correntewire:
The government of Israel has always been the hand puppet of the Corporate State of ’Merika.
Oh, sure, the Israelis have their own fronts with strings that lead to the gullible and easily bought here in the CS’M, they have their Mossad, they take extreme offense if you suggest they’re totally dependent on Uncle Sugar, but basically it’s a dog and pony show.
It always has been. Appearances are cosmetic. They always will be. After all, there is oil under all that sand to the East and the South and the North of Israel, which itself is a lovely base of Company operations with an easily controlled paramilitary population.
Plant this into your database: the Company owns the Congress. We are going to expand the War on Terra into Iran. Chaos is the plan.
