A Dose of Reality for Douglas Feith

Tuesday, 14 December 2004 12:00 AM

To ward off yet another gratuitous and illegal U.S. attack on a Muslim country, Europe, the International Atomic Energy Agency, and U.S. experts such as Gordon Prather have exposed the Bush administration's false claims. But the Bush administration ignores factual truth. Bush has his own "truth," a delusional "truth" independent of all evidence.

Israel's right-wing Likud Party regards Feith as one of its own. The Dec. 12 Jerusalem Post described Feith as "a staunch supporter of Israel." In an exclusive interview, Feith told that paper that despite the intercession of Britain, France, Germany and the IAEA against a U.S. attack on Iran, the Bush administration has not ruled out taking military action against Iran.

In other words, the neocon Bush administration has already decided to attack Iran and Syria. The only question is what kind of lie can Bush use to get away with it.

But first Bush has to take over the IAEA, which has steadfastly refused to go along with Bush's propaganda against Iran. According to the Dec. 12 Washington Post, the Bush administration has been tapping the telephones of the head of the IAEA, M. ElBaradei, hoping to find damaging information with which to frame, blackmail or taint him as an Iranian ally.

Unable to find or manufacture any evidence against ElBaradei, the Bush administration is using an orchestrated campaign of anonymous accusations in an effort to oust the IAEA director and to replace him with a U.S. puppet. The problem is that ElBaradei is more highly regarded than any member of the tainted Bush administration, including President Bush himself. So far, Bush cannot find anyone anywhere in the world, including our British puppet, who is willing to be associated with the Bush administration's disgraceful intentions.

The important unanswered question is: Why do the neocons with their proven record of duplicity and delusion still hold the reigns of power in the Bush administration? Why isn't Feith in prison? Martha Stewart is in prison for "lying" about a non-crime. Feith's lies have killed thousands. The Iraq war is based entirely on neocon lies. The war is costing the United States a fortune it does not have. The war is producing U.S. casualties comparable to those of the Vietnam War and has killed a minimum of tens of thousands of Iraqi civilians.

The neocons have destroyed Iraq's infrastructure, alienated the entire Muslim world and made the United States the most hated country on the planet.

What does Douglas Feith think the effect would be on Shi'ite Iraq of a U.S. attack on Shi'ite Iran? The only reason the U.S. army in Iraq has not been totally destroyed is the wait-and-see attitude of the majority Shi'ites, who expect to take control of Iraq once there is an election. If the United States attacks Iran, the Iraqi Shi'ite clerics will not be able to maintain their neutrality toward the U.S. occupation of Iraq.

The current Iraqi insurgency is drawn from Sunni ranks. Sunnis comprise only 20 percent of Iraq's population. Yet, Sunnis have tied down eight U.S. divisions while inflicting horrendous casualties on U.S. troops. If Bush escalates U.S. aggression in the Middle East, he will create a larger insurgency.

Imagine the U.S. casualty rate if the Iraqi insurgency were drawn from 80 percent of the population. The temporary Shi'ite insurgency of the minor cleric, Al Sadr, caused tremendous U.S. consternation. What would be the U.S. casualty rate if, instead of sitting on their hands, all the Shi'ites had joined the insurgency?

Iran covers almost four times the area of Iraq and has more than 2.5 times the population. If Bush attacks Iran, he will create an insurgency there, as well, one that could spill over into Pakistan, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

Bush's war is achieving a Shi'ite unity that will redraw Middle Eastern boundaries and eliminate secular Muslim governments. Shi'ite unity will merge with the anti-American terrorists and drive all Western expatriates out of the Middle East. Indeed, the departures are already underway. Israel will be isolated, exposed to the consequences of its aggression against the Palestinians.

Fox "News" and right-wing talk radio crazies misinform us that we are kicking terrorist butt, but in non-delusional reality, we are unifying Islam and ending forever Western influence in the Middle East.
