God of Ahmadinejad, God of Bush

I read today that in the 18-page letter Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sent to American President George Bush, the devout Muslim asked the "devout" Christian what the prophet Jesus Christ would think of the warmaking and killing Bush has wrought in Iraq. It's a good question, even if it comes from a man we Westerners are encouraged to believe is totally insane. I respect those dismissed as insane more and more, so long as the insulated crazies elevated to power in America (and their media apologists and propagandists) are the ones doing the labelling, and they call anyone who disagrees with them insane.

Ahmadinejad's question is a good one even though Condi et al were quick to respond to the diplomatic overture by calling it meaningless stalling tactics. That's what they said about inspections in Iraq, because they already knew the war they wanted was inevitable so long as they were in charge of starting it. They lied then, and they lie now when they say they are seeking diplomatic solutions while trashing potential diplomatic solutions. The war in Iran has already begun: all that remains is the somber Presidential declaration on prime-time television. Oceania, here we come. http://www.commondreams.org/views05/1104-26.htm
