Here's a cheery little post

Paul Craig Roberts: Bush's Armageddon Wish:
"When the neocon nazis nuke Iran it will revive memories in Japan and break the US-Japanese alliance. Japan owns enough US Treasury bonds to be able to destroy both the US dollar and the market for Washington's endless red ink. Russia, China, India, and even our European lackeys will have it forcefully brought home to them that the US is an out-of-control rogue nation. They will unify against us. Most likely our bought and paid for puppets in the MIddle East will fall, and Islamic leaders will gain Pakistan's nuclear weapons. Al Qaeda will gain tens of millions of recruits.

Francis Fukuyama's phrase, 'the end of history' takes on new meaning."

I'm not sure if Bush has an Armageddon wish, but the fact that he somehow hearkens to a literal interpretation of certain Bibly prophesies leaves me to believe that the prospect of an Armagedonesque fallout from his policies is somewhat softened in perceived consequence much akin to the way the Haditha revelations for a wider audience were softened by the immeiately preceding fake McBeth story.

The known is not as ominously threatening as the unknown. The Bible has acclimatized its belevers to the horrible and that makes the horrible palatable - perhaps. That's the connection I see in moments of Dry Martinized clarity.
