“Any Excuse Will Serve a Tyrant” ~ Aesop

As the corporate media hyena’s are howling that the guy with orange hair called off yet another Washington-hatched precision bombing campaigns on a sovereign nation because Iran had the audacity to shoot down a unmanned Navy surveillance plane that Iran claims had violated its airspace, the guy with orange hair did what he does best…promising death and destruction at a future date:

US President Donald Trump doesn’t want war with Iran, but if it happens, there will be “obliteration like you’ve never seen before,” he told NBC, adding that there are “no pre-conditions” for negotiations with Tehran.
You can’t have nuclear weapons,” Trump said, implying anything else was open to discussion – and if Tehran doesn’t want to talk, “you can live in a shattered economy for a long time to come.” The statements come after Trump said he had cancelled a Thursday night strike on Iran at the last minute in retaliation for the American spy drone shot down over Iranian airspace. – via RT.com

With 45 U.S. military bases encircling Iran, it’s not hard to imagine that Trump and Washington can do what they do best, laying another Middle Eastern country to rubble, whenever they are boned to do so.

But really, how many Americans could give a shyte about it all…it’s not like Iran has military drones hovering above the coast of New York.

It’s just another day here in the richest country in the world where 39.7 million folks live in poverty and over 500,000 are homeless on any given night – these kind of problems take a seat in the very last row of the theatre of f**kery from our elected “officials”.

Poverty, homelessness, the uninsured, a primitive health care system, climate engineering, telecommunication companies adding their electromagnetic goo to the mix – who gives a shyte about all this…but dammit, shoot down a $110 million unmanned surveillance plane over an airspace it has not business being over, and it’s time to start talking about some serious obliteration of yet another country.

 

“The tyrant dies and his rule is over, the martyr dies and his rule begins.”

Mozart: Serenade No. 10, for Winds, ‘Gran Partita’, III – Adagio – LSO Wind Ensemble
(Perhaps, one of the most under-appreciated of Mozart’s works – no matter how many times I might listen…I am still mystified by it)
