Burns: Israel and U.S. Agree Iran Must be Bombed
Sunday February 18th 2007, 7:31 pm

Nicholas Burns, under secretary for political affairs for Israel—er, excuse me, the United States—has told the neocon-infested Jerusalem Post “that America and Israel are on the same page when it comes to Iran,” in other words, both agree the Islamic country will be attacked, as Israel has demanded this for years now.

“We have a very clear uniformity of views with the Israelis,” said Burns, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Order of St. John, headed until his death by the former SS official, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. “One of our major [priorities] is obviously to work very closely with Israel and to be a good partner with Israel.” Burns made the comments while speaking at the Brookings Institute, home of the Saban Center for Middle East Policy (the Israeli-American media-mogul, Haim Saban, has proudly declared, “I’m a one-issue guy and my issue is Israel”).

Burns said he does not believe “a conflict with Iran is inevitable; it is certainly not desirable,” but then, of course, this is what neocons always say, as it alienates people when you come off in public as a ghoulish proponent for mass murder and mayhem.

So, how do the Iranians prevent the destruction of their country, the nuclear-tipped bunker-buster slide into the Stone Age?

It’s a no-brainer, really—they simply must go prostrate, give up their nuclear energy program (as there is absolutely no evidence they are working on nuclear weapons, according to both the CIA and the International Atomic Energy Agency), boot out Ahmadinejad and the mullahs, allow Reza Pahlavi to reclaim the throne, and go back to the good old days when multinationals ran roughshod and SAVAK tortured all who dared oppose dictatorial, monarchial rule.

Otherwise, the neocons will nuke the place, although, if we are to believe Burns, they want sanctions to have a chance to work, probably the same way they worked in Iraq—ultimately killing 1.5 million Iraqis, 500,000 of them children. Of course, this will take too long, as the neocons are determined to “democratize” Iran with depleted uranium and “mini-nukes” before their cardboard cut-out of an appointed unitary decider leaves office in early 2009.

Bombing Iran, naturally, is a done deal. And that’s why big-wig neocon James “World War Four” Woolsey can get away with performing for Arnaud de Borchgrave on the sidewalk outside of the Metropolitan Club. “In response to my question about how he rated the odds of a bombing campaign against Iran,” writes de Borchgrave for the Moonie, er Washington Times, Woolsey did a little “parody of the Beach Boys hit ‘Barbara Ann’—’Bomb Bomb Bomb, Bomb-Bomb Iran.’”

In Bushzarro world, attacking sovereign countries with nuclear weapons passes for a comedy routine.
