Putin Visits Iran - Next day, Bush Threatens World War III

On October 16, 2007 Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Iran to participate in the Second Caspian Summit and met with Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The next day, October 17, during a press conference, United States President George W. stated: "We got a leader in Iran who has announced that he wants to destroy Israel. So I've told people that if you're interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them from have the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon. "
.
Gee, now WHO could Bush have been talking to? Could it be PUTIN?!?!?
.
Does he mean, when we eventually get around to nuking Iran, we'll nuke Russia, too, if it doesn't stop standing up for Iran's right to peaceful nuclear power?
.
Evidently Russian President Boris Putin thought the latter, because on October 26 he opined on Bush's plans to install a radar base in the Czech Republic and 10 interceptor missiles in Poland, both former Soviet satellite nations. Putin said: "Analogous actions by the Soviet Union, when it deployed missiles in Cuba, prompted the 'Caribbean crisis.'"
.
Why in the world would Putin say this??
Could it be because Bush has rejected Putin's offer to put such installations in Russia and Azerbaijan, much closer to Iran where any missile defense actually might do some good. So its obvious why Putin thinks this is just a the beginning of a plan to TRY to protect Europe from Russian retaliation when the U.S. decides to shoot some of its European nuclear weapons at Russia. (Not to mention the fact that Bush threatened World War III nine days earlier?)
.
For those who weren't alive to remember the Cuban Missile Crisis, you missed the scariest few days of your life. I remember being 14 years old and standing with my mother at the kitchen table - located just 25 miles from the heart of New York City, well within the heat and blast zone of the dozens of multi-megaton Soviet nuclear bomb explosions that would hit the Big Apple and northern New Jersey. I asked her, "Is there going to be a nuclear war? Are we going to be bombed? Are we going to die?" She started crying and said she did not know.
.
As I've said here before and will say again, Putin - and China - probably should be worried about whether Bush/Cheney and Neocons Right and Left are gearing up for an eventual first strike to ensure that the U.S. stays number one, if only number one in the ability to get other foolish nations to keep lending money to it.
A whole list of reasons the Russians and Chinese should be frightened is presented in the March/April 2006 issue of Foreign Affairs. See "The Rise of U.S. Nuclear Primacy" by Keir A. Lieber and Daryl G. Press.

For those who are fed up with geopolitical breast beating and threats by power hungry mad men, there is an alternative: the happy decentralized world of small communities (which network and confederate regionally) where any necessary community decisions are made only when 3/4ths or 9/10ths of all eligible voters have approved them. In such a world Hitlers, Bushes, Sharons and such like eager to grab other peoples' lands will have to work really hard to get their tyrannical programs passed. And even if they are so charismatic they keep their flock of a few thousand enthralled, they'll never get militarily strong enough to harm anyone else outside a tiny radius and certainly not peoples halfway around the world. Check out the alternative to nuke war fighting nation states on Secession.Net.

As for the photo above of Brittney Spears or Paris Hilton? Or was it Marie Osmond, Brittny Gastineau, Garcelle Beauvais, Elvis, Pamela Anderson, Rosie O'Donnell, Mariah Carey or Vanessa Hudgens? Anyway, I’m sure they’ll all be delighted to know I used their names to try to stop the nuclear Armageddon that George Bush is just waiting on god to start! Read the article and see this great video about these John Hagee-loving NUTS who admit on tape they are looking forward to Armageddon and the death of all Jews who don't convert to Jesus.

PPS: A few days later
Gordon Prather wrote an excellent article on this topic titled Go Ahead On – Start WWIII.

Does Putin really means what he says? I don't think so!
