America's BTK Foreign Policy

It's like Oscar night. "The nominees are..." Everyone on the edge of their seats, rethinking those last-minute bets, "oh no wait, I wanna change my vote."

"May I have the envelope please?"

Condi Rice, a little giddy in her new role as starlet award presenter, simpers.

"And the winner is - "

For months, even years, people around the world have been speculating. Who will be next? Will it be Iran? Syria? Venezuela?

A couple of weeks ago, it looked like Iran for sure.

But then some Washington brows began to furrow. Maybe not. Iran is awful big. And it's got an air force. And bombs. Plus Russia says the oil there is theirs. And then there's the Michael Jackson trial. May sweeps and all.

And as quickly as the talking heads changed their predictions for best picture from Aviator to Million Dollar Baby, it was Suddenly Syria. And Lebanon, which as Uri Avnery points out in his recent comments, is not viewed with the same degree of separateness from Syria by everybody.

But when you're the US, how things are viewed doesn't really matter much.

If plausible deniability was needed once upon a time, it isn't today.

America's BTK foreign policy is not high maintenance.

And before you can say sparkle, terrible crimes had taken place in the Middle East which were immediately blamed on Syria.

The timing is pure coincidence, of course.

Anyone who suggests that it is hardly logical that Syria, a country with at least one company lapping up oil in Iraq, and a lucrative contract for outsourced US wetwork, would all of a sudden, within the space of a week, off a wily old Lebanese imperialist collaborator and then send a guy off to kill some Israeli gunmen on a bus in Tel Aviv is simply an anti-Semitic blame America firster and probably a single-payor-health-care-supportin' socialist to boot.

Syria did it, and that's that. Probably did the tsunami too, and they are occupying Lebanon!

Now this is truly astonishing. Both the US and Israel are simply outraged at Syria's military presence in Lebanon. Occupying another country! Can you imagine!

Within days, at least one US lawmaker had called for dropping nuclear weapons on Syria, Hilary Clinton, the wife of ex-US president Bill Clinton, chimed in to show that America is a moderate and gentle serial killer, suggested only that Syria should be punished, thus paving the way for a moving display of how the two allowed branches of the US corporate party will reach a compromise and only bomb Syria with conventional weapons, saving the nukes, presumably for Iran.

Meanwhile, Lebanon, in an unexpected burst of US-boosted people power, offered news cameras feeds of 60 thousand or so people in the streets, many carrying signs with slogans thoughtfully painted on in English, the government, said to be "pro-Syria," resigned, the army became somewhat divided, and the Israeli press reported that the US had given Israel the "go-ahead" to attack Syria.

The Golan Heights, natural settlement expansion, match made in heaven.

Or the boardrooms of Raytheon and Aliant, as they are called by the anti-BTK obstructionists, who would understand what paradise means for a hardworking serial warlord if they looked at those quarterlies.

Actions like Sep 11 do not happen in a vaccuum. Long before those hijackers ever stepped foot on the planes the damage had been done. They were brainwashed with the same type of garbage propaganda that is spewed from Fatwa's weblog.

I always thought that "The Enemy Within" was just a metaphore for liberalism, that is, until I encountered Ductape Fatwa. He should be in an orange jumpsuit for sure.
