Carpe Diem: 2019.06.19 HERE WE GO AGAIN

“Remember the Maine,” Remember the Maddox (Gulf of Tonkin).  Well, if you can’t, then get ready for “Remember the Straits of Hormuz”? Or whatever it takes—like those alleged Iraqi WMD—for the US to fake up a pretext to go to war with Iran on behalf of its Middle East satrapies—Saudi Arabia and Israel. After all, war is America’s primary export.

America has a fair amount of experience with false flag operations.  So, one has to wonder when we are fed a piece of video that looks like it was being shot by a cheap smartphone through the bottom of a Coke bottle as what Trump referred to as “incontrovertible proof” that the Iranian’s had attached explosives to a couple of tankers in the Straits.

Trump and his administration will lie about just anything, even the time of day while you were looking at your watch. So why should anybody believe these bastards when they are accusing the Iranians of blowing up anything that floats through the Straits of Hormuz and probably of pooping in it as well.

“Porky” Pompeo and “Got Milk” Bolton have been trying to pick a war with Iran as their life ambition—which would assure their lucrative retirements as board members for Raytheon, Lockheed, or some other American defense contractor—but without much success. So, when your desired adversary refuses to throw a punch, throw one for them. That’s what this suspiciously looks like and, of course, that dolt “Bone Spur” Trump fills the bill as the perfect guy to give that bullshit piece of video the stamp of credibility.

Now, another thousand troops have been dispatched to the area so that more Americans can be in harm’s way. Get ready folks.
