“Iran was dangerous, Iran is dangerous, and Iran will be dangerous if they have the knowledge to make a nuclear weapon. What’s to say they couldn’t start another covert nuclear weapons program?”
— Decider George on Tuesday
Yesterday, today and tomorrow, Decider George always decides what is right and wrong.
“The Iranians have a strategic choice to make. They can come clean with the international community about the scope of their nuclear activities, and fully accept the long-standing offer to suspend their enrichment program and come to the table and negotiate, or they can continue on a path of isolation.”
— Decider George on Wednesday
In the Rose Garden and in Nebraska, Decider George stammered, blubbered, and believe it not, still conducted hisself as an arrogant, hardcase asshole, as he tried to musterÂ answers toÂ the shitload of questions about his big mouth the last few months. Prime on his lips was the now-renown National Intelligence Estimate, the old NIE, which once again scorched his ass as it revealed Iran has no nuclear weapons program, and hasn’t since 2003.
In a kind of defense, Decider George told reporters Tuesday he’d only recently received the NIE report after getting a heads up on it last summer. “I was made aware of the NIE last week. In August, I think it was Mike McConnell (Director of National Intelligence) came in and said, ‘we have some new information.’ He didn’t tell me what the information was; he did tell me it was going to take a while to analyze…”
What a crock of shit.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, Ray McGovern, a former CIA official who gave daily intel briefings to Decider George’s daddy, was quoted as saying: “The notion that the head of National Intelligence whispered in Bush’s ear ‘I’ve got a surprise for you and it’s really important, but I’m not going to tell you about it until we check it out’ — The whole thing is preposterous.”
Yes, indeed. Many journalists knew the fireball NIE was in the works long ago. Inter Press Service reported last month the NIE was completed in the fall of 2006, but was rewritten three times under Vice President Dufus Dick Chaney’s hot glare. Long-time, noted veteran investigative reporter Seymour Hersh told CNN on Tuesday: “I think the vice president has kept his foot on the neck of that report…”
Dufus Dick did know. The bluster-faced shithead knows everything. In fact, he can read tea leaves. In an interview with politico.com this week, Dufus Dick said Iraq is going so well that it will become a certified nation by 2009: “I’m faily confident we’ll have (Iraq) in a good place, where we’ll be able to look back on it and say, ‘That was the right decision. It was a sound decision going into Iraq.'”
The Politico writer decribed Dufus Dick as relaxed for the meeting, in his shirt sleeves, leaning back in a big, lazy chair behind his much-cluttered desk (opposite of Decider George’s clean, empty Oval Office desktop), a Christmas tree all trimmed out.
What does he have to worry about, outside of a heart that could explode at any second? And to seriously think this cold-hearted asshole is just a heart beat away from really doing some damage.
A major element in this entire Iran bullshit is Iran. Not highly-publicized in the West, and hardly at all in the US, is how Iran is governed. Dufus Dick knew it, though, so did ‘Scooter’ Libby, Dandy Don Rumsfeld, Michael Bolton (Oops, sorry) John Bolton, Paul Wolfawitz, and an ugly host of others. They all knew Iranian President Muhmoud Ahmadinejad was just a figurehead. Did Decider George know? Intelligence is lost on some people.
Iran is a theocracy. Although Ahmadinejad gets all the headlines with his big mouth — a trait he and Decider George have very, very-much in common — the real power is the the hands of the religious people. Or should we say, just hand, as the big boy, the final-say guy, is Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
In early August 2005 — two years after they reportedly shut down their nuclear weapons program — Khamenei issued a fatwa, a religious rule/decree forbidding the production, stockpiling and use of those armaments.
The decree was unveiled at a meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna and recalled the Christian US bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Harry Truman said the bombs were just another weapon in the “arsenal of righteousness”). Khamenei’s statement begins:
“The savagery of the attack, the human sufering it caused, the scale of the civilian loss of life, turning individuals, old and young, into ashes in a split second, and maiming indefinitely those who survived should never be removed from our memory.”Â

How about able leaders of the US? Anything poetic from their blubbering lips about the horrors of killing a whole shitload of people just to continue a false premise? Maybe they’re nuts and US voters need to know in advance about these evil, lying-ass-sonofabitches.
Decider George is certifiable. In his Rose Garden talk on Tuesday, one reporter apparently noticing his body language asked if the president wasn’t “dispirited.” Doug Thompson at capitolhillblue.com went a bit further when he wrote on Wednesday Decider George during the press conference acted like a cornered dog with “the eyes of a madman.”
Maybe a brain scan would help voters decide. Dr. Daniel Amen, a neuropsychiatrist and brain-imaging expert, told MSNBC this week technology should be used to cull unworthy presidential hopefuls.
“For years, what I have thought about, talked about, is we should be scanning the brains of presidential candidates, because a president with a bad brain can ruin life on earth…I’m sort of tired of presidents who’ve had a bad brain that are not leading the country in a good direction.”
