as little as a week before the election

* it's open season in the comments here. does anyone have the words to describe the veep?

* uranus:
Global Security has an article suggesting possible dates for starting the war in Iran, past and future. Regarding using the war as our "October surprise," they say:
7 November 2006
The US Congressional elections of 2006 will be held on Tuesday, November 7, 2006. It is unclear how the United States election cycle would influence the timing of strikes against Iran. If the White House is risk averse, it would be unlikely to launch strikes in the run-up to the 2006 election [or the 2008 election]. However, as soon as the election concludes, risk averse domestic political inhibitions about the uncertain consequences of striking Iran might be greatly diminished. Alternately, it might be conjectured that the White House might judge that military strikes would rally the country around the President and his party. This would argue for timing the strikes as little as a week before the election, a pre-planned October Surprise.
Oh yeah, nothing like slaughtering some bad guys to get people to vote for you. We are Devo."

You can't make this stuff up! I sure don't. And people in my state say the news is boring. Pfftt on 'em.

Read this article. It's short and really startling. Remember, this sort of thing really happens.

And oh yeah, about Richard Cheney? Why, that cowboy mother fucker...it sounds better everytime someone says it...

lukery said...

say it loud, brother!

wait till rimone gets here! soon 'cowboy mother fucker' won't even get you into pre-school :-)

profmarcus said...

i don't have adequate words for cheney but i can offer what i believe to be a fairly representative visual... take a look if you dare...

prof - that's great.

what happens when he dies and goes to hell? does he collapse into a black hole as his entire ugliness falls into his head?

damien said...

Nice pic Prof. Remarkable, almost modern art by Hieronymus Bosch, decidely Freudian. Seems a shame to defame him by association with the Dickster.

Don said...

As if the poxy, miserable, war-mongering, weak-hearted, sonuvaratbastard would have the first clue what real art is, let alone the identity of any artist...

Apreciation of art requires heart and soul... this sorry sonofabitch can't produce a decent excuse for either.

'cowboy motherfucker' is usually one of my names for the preznit.

i can't help but calling cheney, first ages ago dick 'fuckoff patrick leahy' cheney, then dickless cheney, then mr dick '5 deferments' cheney.

never came up w/anything really good. i'm still working on it though. :-)

motherfucking bastard liar who flew away to hide on 9/11...wait--that's the preznit as well.

Did any of you read that article I linked? It's an eyewitness account of a strange weapon the U.S. used one day in Baghdad by Majid al-Ghazali. Excerpt:

...he told me he has seen virtually every type of conventional weapon employed in battle, and is well acquainted with their effects on people and machines, but nothing in his extensive combat experience prepared him for the shock of what he saw in Baghdad on April 12th.

On that date, al-Ghazali and his family sheltered in their house as a fierce street battle erupted in his neighborhood. In the midst of the fighting, he noticed that the Americans had called up an oddly configured tank. Then to his amazement the tank suddenly let loose a blinding stream of what seemed like fire and lightning, engulfing a large passenger bus and three automobiles. Within seconds the bus had become semi-molten, sagging "like a wet rag" as he put it. He said the bus rapidly melted under this withering blast, shrinking until it was a twisted blob about the dimensions of a VW bug. As if that were not bizarre enough, al-Ghazali explicitly describes seeing numerous human bodies shriveled to the size of newborn babies. By the time local street fighting ended that day, he estimates between 500 and 600 soldiers and civilians had been cooked alive as a result of the mysterious tank-mounted device.

In a city littered everywhere with burned-out civilian and military vehicles, US forces were abnormally scrupulous about immediately detailing bulldozers and shovel crews to the job of burying the grim wreckage. Nevertheless, telltale remnants remained as Dillon found when al-Ghazali later took him to the site. Dillon said they easily uncovered large puddles of resolidified metal and mounds of weird fibrous material that, al-Ghazali explained, were all that remained of the vehicles' tires. Dillon, who accumulated plenty of battlefield experience as a medic in Viet-Nam, and has since covered a number of wars from Somalia to Kosovo, told me that he has witnessed every kind of conventional ordnance that can be used on humans and vehicles. " I've seen a freaking smorgasbord of destruction in my life," he said, "flame-throwers, napalm, white phosphorous, thermite, you name it. I know of nothing short of an H-bomb that conceivably might cause a bus to instantly liquefy or that can flash broil a human body down to the size of an infant. God pity humanity if that thing is a preview of what's in store for the 21st century."


How silly it seems that the press is full of accounts and discussions of nuclear and biological weapons and reasons to go to war, or not, when the evolution of modern weaponry has reached a point where anyone who advocates war is clearly and indisputably insane. Also, check out the site about scalar electromagnetics. It suggests a clean way to make unlimited energy, and weapons which make armies and all other weapons obsolete.

Yeah, and to think we could waste our time doing stupid stuff like building health clinics in Africa or schools in Pakistan. What a fucking waste.

LeeB said...

. . . and let's not forget health clinics and schools in the United States, and other parts of the world, like Louisiana.

Jerks.

Can't we just have the election NOW? I do NOT want to wait for November!

lukery said...

uranus - that's frightening. "abnormally scrupulous" made me 'laugh'.

imagine if we spent all that money on alternative energy. we could stop wars, and save the planet. but where's the fun in that?

rimone said...

Uranus, after reading about white phosphorus and the like being used, i quit reading stuff like the one you posted about a year ago.

i really can't take the wear and tear on my head. but i read it just now and remember i saw it a couple of years back. my Scottish friends Alma and Nomad sent it to me. i almost puked.

God pity humanity if that thing is a preview of what's in store for the 21st century.

and pity us all more when things like these pieces aren't in screaming headlines in newspapers all across the world (i've already given up on the news-nazis in amerika).

in an old post of mine, i once said 'we're gonna need outside help and fast' (or something like that). i truly think it's long past time for a world intervention, to stop US from fucking things up more.

Janet is a big reader of alternative websites, and believes alien societies have committed to stopping the world from destroying itself. I don't think that's the case. But she presented some material yesterday which makes me question everything I've learned in life. Once I've read a little about it, I'll show it to you. (She's taken a sound beating in life the past few years, and helping her realize she's the brains of the outfit around here is a slow, arduous process. As a criminal lawyer, she makes unbelievable and unexpected moves in court and saves people's lives, and causes the judge to call her every name but "a good milk cow." This is a corrupt part of the world.)

The scalar electromagnetics site is most thought provoking. It was a theory developed by Tesla, who, incidentally, invented broadcasting and alternating current, and was relegated to obscurity when he designed a system to transmit electrical energy without wires. It seems the powers that be couldn't have that, and still can't. A scalar electromagnetic generator consists of a simple dipole magnet operating in a vacuum, and generates energy along the time domain (whatever that means). Implicit in this description is the inference that adaptions to this arrangement could possibly influence the passage of time itself. The site also describes devices which could cure most any affliction, and weapons which could target individuals, limited areas or entire countries in almost limitless ways. This technology is not new, having been proposed a century ago. It is suggested that many of the UFOs and crop circles we see are scientists around the world learning to use scalar electromagnetic interferometers. It is also suggested that misuse and abuse of these devices could cause a number of catastrophes, including blowing up the sun. Like I said, I didn't believe any of that material...but my nephew says the Navy teaches them about all of it. Wow. No doubt people thought it was alarming and insane when, in the nineteenth century, it was proposed to be possible to send pictures and audio from one place to another, through the air, and people would invest major blocks of their time sitting by boxes watching and listening to broadcasts. It's great stuff! I wish I'd been born with a better gift for mathematics so I could have pursued electrical engineering.

that sound you just heard was my head going through my desk cause i couldn't find the gun to blow my fucking brains out.

where's that little .gif again? ah, here it is.

Uranus said...

If you like all that, just wait! The new stuff is more down to earth and immediate. I hope to be ready to write it in the next day or two. Ah, fingers don't fail me now. As a little preview, consider this: what if you were to discover that everything you'd been led to know was true and real was cut from whole cloth?? Well, my friends, that just how far the deception goes...

rimone said...

it is 12/9 at 21,06 (9,06 PM) now. i just deleted the comment i was posting to yours above, Uranus. Fahrenheit 9/11 is on More4. again.

i thought Remembrance Week was over yesterday. WTF?

BTW, i keep forgetting about Prof Marcus's lovely Bosch/cheney brain illo.

i have the helmeted bird monster (scroll down a bit for close-up; he's at the lower right of Prof M's repro). helmetbird dude's been sitting on my desk for the past year or so. i totally love him.
