… With his bodyguards and silver cane and every hair in place, he took whatever he wanted to and he laid all to waste... Lyric from “Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts” by Bob Dylan, from his album “Blood on the Tracks”
These words could apply to anyone of the swaggering harlots in Washington D.C. that the American people have elected to represent Israel and the Military Industrial Complex. To paraphrase Mr. Dylan, with crystal ball and turban on and every lie in place, prominent Republicans are vowing to oppose the peace treaty with Iran that the president has just negotiated, having never read it of course. From Trump the Chump to “How Dry I am” Boehner they are piling on to say once again that the facts don’t matter. If Obama did it, it is wrong.
The alternative to this treaty is likely to be all out war. The American people had better decide how much blood and treasure they are willing to throw at the heads of these overblown lunatics, fanatics and charlatans in order to fund their geopolitical ambitions and Netanyahu’s xenophobia.
