Occupy IRAN (comic)

Wisdom Quarterly, Gildedageperiod89, ABC News

Since the people of Iran cannot hope to occupy Tehran -- due to our imposition of military dictators backed by a draconian clandestine force on the people after pulling down (illegally subverting, deposing, and replacing) the Shah in 1979 -- the US military-industrial complex is likely to do it for them.

The fast and furious plot to occupy Iran
(AJ) Washington is looking to increase sanctions on Iran as a result of the plot to kill a Saudi ambassador. Iran's supposed "threat" could simply be the US government's way of distracting Americans from problems at home. No one ever lost money betting on the dull predictability of the US government. Just as Occupy Wall Street is firing imaginations all across the spectrum -- piercing the noxious revolving door between government and casino capitalism -- Washington brought us all down to Earth, sensationally advertising an Iranian cum Mexican cartel terror plot straight out of The Fast and the Furious movie franchise. The potential victim: Adel al-Jubeir, the ambassador in the US of that lovely counter-revolutionary Mecca, Saudi Arabia. More

Iraq: No Immunity for US War Crimes


BAGHDAD, Iraq (ABC) - The prospects of the U.S. keeping a modest [just 40,000 or 50,000 "trainers"] military force in Iraq after the Dec. 31 deadline to withdraw nearly all troops was thrown into question Tuesday when leaders in Baghdad suggested that American soldiers would NO longer have immunity from prosecution [for US war crimes] as of 2012.

Washington has long been working under the assumption that immunity from prosecution was a crucial component of the pact that was signed with Iraq three years ago involving any U.S. soldiers who stay behind to train [the way we "advised" during our war on Vietnam] national forces.

Need to borrow more money on credit for the imperial war machine? Xie-xie!

However, Iraqi leaders, after a meeting with President Jalal Talabani, said that while they would welcome training and military equipment, "there is no need to give immunity for trainers." [So I guess it's on to Iran, an indefinite occupation, and further immunity from our war crimes there.] More
