""Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert begins a U.S. visit on Sunday, seeking from President [sic] George W. Bush a post-election picture of U.S. policy toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and Iran," read the headlines in CLG News. Think back, folks. What did Olmert and GWB do last time Olmert visited the White House? They planned the "war" on Lebanon.
So. What are George and Ehud gonna dream up this time? What do you want to bet that -- knowing Bush's addiction to killing people en masse and Olmert's love of things that explode -- that we are gonna see Iran attacked within the next two months.
Let's see. Olmert arrived at the White House in May 2006 in order to plan the attack on Lebanon. The attack then happened in July. That means that it took approximately two months for them to put their plans into action. So. Olmert arrives here in November. Let's do the math. Two months later? An attack on Iran just as the new Congress is getting it together? Perfect timing!
I'm willing to bet you a free all-expense-paid trip to Gaza that this is gonna happen. And this will be an easy bet to win! But if I lose, that's okay. If thousands -- if not hundreds of thousands -- of lives are spared in Israel and Iran because GWB's and EO's plans have been forced to be changed, that's okay with me. Plus Gaza is a closed military zone and they wouldn't let you in there anyway. Who wants Americans to see that their tax dollars are being spent to massacre women and children instead of being spent on schools, highways, public safety and healthcare back here at home?"
