Wait a second.
As soon as I stop laughing, I promise that I’ll start writing the actual post, but I need a few more minutes to compose myself.
Ok, here goes…
Guess who “U.S. military and intelligence officials” are now claiming is “helping to train Taliban fighters within its borders”?????
Ok, it’s none other than IRAN.
Ooops, I just did a spit-take on myself trying to drink water while laughing.
Isn’t this an amazingly serendipitous development, seeing as the Scotland Herald reported a mere nine days ago that “hundreds of powerful US “bunker-buster” bombs are being shipped from California to the British island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean in preparation for a possible attack on Iran.” In fact, it’s so serendipitous that one could almost imagine U.S. military and intelligence officials making it up so that they had a pretense to do what Israel has been begging the US to do for ages; attack Iran. Or as John McCain so blithely put it…
Bombing people is funny!
Especially when you can do it with the bravery of being out of range.
But you might ask, why on earth do we keep manufacturing reasons to go to war with Iran? After all, nobody likes war, do they?
Well, you’re not supposed to know this, but Iran does not play ball with the global banking elite. The Iranian government is among the very few to have very little foreign debt. It uses its state-owned banks to make loans and credits available, following the Islamic proscription against usury, which means that loans are made interest free.
This is no good for the global banking elite, because they’ve somehow convinced just about every other nation on earth that they need to BORROW money from them AT INTEREST.
This makes the global banking elite extremely, extravagantly, filthy freaking rich, and very, very, very powerful. As the godfather of Central Banking, Mayer Amschel Rothschild, once said:
“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes her laws.”
Well, most nations have given him and his family control over the past 200+ years (ok, ok, the Rockefellers are involved too, but I’m trying to keep this somewhat simple.) This is the secret control grid operating behind the scenes. A major quadrant of the matrix, if you will.
Iran, however, is NOT one of those nations, and I have to think that at this point, it’s REALLY beginning to piss in the banker’s lemonade that they don’t control them as well as everyone else.
And so we’ve had all of the bullshit stories about Iran’s supposed aspirations for nuclear weapons, even though the head of the IAEA needed to be replaced in order to get them to even come close to accusing Iran of attempting to build nuclear weapons. And all the while, Iran has steadfastly denied that they have any desire to build them.
I’d also like to point out the obvious double standard that U.S. administrations going back to the 1960s have applied with respect to Israel’s nuclear weapons. Israel’s suspected arsenal includes chemical, biological and more than 100 nuclear warheads, along with the capacity to deliver them.
And as I recently said here, between Israel and Iran, it is the former that has most recently attacked a neighbor.
So anyway, that’s why I find this new story so side-splittingly humorous. I mean, for crying out loud, they’re not even pretending like it’s hard to fool us any more.
I imagine a board room somewhere, probably at a “think tank” like the Brookings Institute, or the American Enterprise Institute, or possibly at the Council On Foreign Relations. Somebody says “You know, I think the masses are figuring out our game by now. Maybe we should couch this a little bit better.” Somebody else says “Are you kidding me? These people still haven’t noticed that one of their favorite news anchors is a Vanderbilt, and another is a Brzezinski. We could tell them that Iran is planning to crash the moon into the earth and they’d barely blink.”
So anyway, here’s CNN’s flavor of the Kool Aid.

Iran is helping train Taliban fighters within its borders, according to U.S. military and intelligence officials.
The United States has already said that the Taliban may be receiving limited training from the Iranians in Afghanistan, but the officials told CNN that training in the use of small arms was occurring within Iran.
“We’ve known for some time that Iran has been a source for both material and trained fighters for Taliban elements in Afghanistan,” said Army Lt. Col. Edward Sholtis on Monday. But, he said, it is unknown whether that training is occurring with the support of Tehran, or it is “simply something that is happening beyond the government’s control.”
“For some years, Iran has supplied arms and munitions to the Afghan Taliban,” said a U.S. intelligence official. “It has also helped conduct at least small-scale weapons training for the Taliban. There’s reason to believe that some of this training has occurred in Iran.”
The officials who spoke with CNN did not say how many Taliban fighters have been trained in Iran, or whether the training was sanctioned at the highest levels of the Iranian government.
Iran, which has always denied supporting the Taliban, said the training allegations were false.
An Iranian official at the United Nations said these are “…absolutely baseless and wrong allegations, and strongly rejected by the Islamic Republic of Iran.”
Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. military commander in the region, has said Iran was aiding the Taliban within Afghanistan but that its role was limited in scope.
