The Lovefest Continues


Ah, yes, dear Mr. Freiburger and his
little neocon fantasies. What do you have to say about the fact that Iran curtailed its nuclear weapons program in 2003, yet King George just recently acknowledged the same fact?

The “fact” our lib-of-the-day refers to is actually a National Intelligence Estimate—which,
according to Alan Dershowitz, “falls hook, line and sinker for a transparent bait and switch tactic employed not only by Iran, but by several other nuclear powers in the past.” This, by the by, would be the same Iran that’s still doing this. And this. And this. Yeah, I really feel good about giving these guys a clean bill of health.

President Bush has been caught in a lie. Or is it a situation for people like you, Calvin, that you think the president’s own intelligence “cooked” the intelligence?

First, no he hasn’t. Second, what does “you think the president’s own intelligence cooked the intelligence” even mean? Is it a vain attempt at wit?

Maybe this quote by Herman Goering (he was a Nazi, in case you don’t know, since you supposedly received such a poor education at Fond du Lac High School) at the Nuremberg Trials can explain it better for you:

Such a poor education? I never said anything of the sort. Shouldn’t we expect
a college professor to read a little more carefully, and get the basic facts right when he attacks someone?

“Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding to the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger. It works the same in any country.”

Predictably, our friend sees Nazis around every corner. Never mind that the attack, and the continuing threat, are all too real. It figures.

On second thought, I’m trying to talk logically to a neocon.

“Trying” being the operative word…

  1. Must say I was thinking pretty much the same type of thing. Might I suggest responding to a few of these letters with another letter to the editor.
