The Ziocons are Back!

Here's a guy who feels for the oppressed Iranian people so much that he's tweeting in John Lennon:

Mark Dubowitz @mdubowitz

Imagine a free, democratic, independent, wealthy Iran. Giving full expression to beauty of Persian culture. Tapping into brains & spirit of its remarkable people. No nukes. At peace with its neighbors. Pray for peaceful end to this brutal and corrupt regime. #IranProtests (29/12/17)

Still, not everyone, is convinced:

Omar Baddar @OmarBaddar

It's remarkable how people who never one complained about Israel's nukes or its oppression of Palestinians suddenly discover the virtues of freedom and nuclear non-proliferation when their eyes move just a thousand miles to the east.

But then, Dubowitz is the CEO of the Ziocon finktank Foundation For Defense of Democracies (FDD). That's right, the Ziocons are baaack!

And just to let you know how lucky the Iranian people are that Dubowitz and the FDD have their back, check out this great humanitarian's thoughts on Syria: "When pressed by his interviewer about sectarian bloodshed that could result... from Syria's disintegration, Dubowitz mused that communal violence in Syria 'is not necessarily a bad thing. A Syria that is consumed by its own internal internecine wars,' he said, 'may be certainly less of a security threat than what we're seeing today,' since it would be less able to 'project trouble' in the region and 'cause havoc' for the United States and Israel... " (

OK, but he wouldn't want that to happen to the remarkable and beautiful Persians, would he? Well, sadly, ya know, you've gotta be cruel to be kind: "In particular, he has pushed for sanctions aimed at causing domestic hardship and turmoil inside Iran and argued against adapting US laws to ease the import of sanctions-exempt US medicines." (ibid)

Isn't it interesting how they claim that these Middle Eastern countries are a problem for the US? In what way? How are the Iranians or the Syrians threatening the US? Are they going to send a flotilla of ships to South Carolina? Are their bombers going to drop bombs on Texas? I want one of these people to tell me how Syria and Iran pose a threat without invoking Israel.

The message to take away from US behaviour in the aftermath of the agreement between Iran and the P5+1 on Iran's nuclear program is that no country in the world should sign any deal with the US. Its system of government makes it incapable of respecting such agreements.
