...to "settle the score" with Iran. (Yitzhak Aharonovitch, Israeli Public Security Minister, in an interview with Israel Radio). Does anyone not see the hand of Uncle Sam pulling Israel's strings here?! It's not about the prospect of Iranian nukes, People; it's all about the Iranian pipeline and its government's invitation to various nations around the globe to trade in euros instead of our horribly de-valued dollar (FYI: that euro v. dollar thing was the real reason Saddam Hussein ended up swinging Texas-style, if you know what I mean). Hey, maybe now would be a good time for Israel to use some of those bunker busters President Obama tried to sneak by under the table a few years back! You know, one could just happen to go a little off course and accidentally demolish Iran's shiny new pipeline. Best hope it looks like an accident to China though, 'cuz word has it they like the idea of them oily euros. I'm just gonna say it: Israel is little more than a thinly veiled military outpost for the United States. I say "little more" because Israel's status as a 'sovereign nation' allows the US to don its soldiers and equipment like Halloween costumes in order to carry out the kind of work that can't be done openly as the USA. Case in point: the shizznit that's getting ready to go down between Israel and Iran. Question: is the issue of Iran's nuclear ambitions just a shallow pretense to enable the US (via Israel) to get at some deeper (yes,underlying) issue?
