Nikki Haley’s Dangerous, Mushroom-Cloud, Hearsay Hysteria

Britain, Foreign Policy, Intelligence, Russia, UN, War, WMD

If the US didn’t go to war with Iraq, RIP, the smoking gun would be a mushroom cloud, warned the insane Condoleeza Rice, Bush’s National Security Advisor. Now another blood-thirsty screech is inciting the same against another people. Airhead Nikki Haley is warning that “Russia could use chemical weapons in New York.”

Who told the harridan? The manta that “17 intelligence agencies say so” is not proof, it’s hearsay.

She and mad Rachel Maddow likely agree.

Washington Examiner:

“If we don’t take immediate concrete measures to address this now, Salisbury will not be the last place we see chemical weapons used,” Haley told the United Nations Security Council. “They could be used here in New York, or in cities of any country that sits on this Council. This is a defining moment.”
Haley raised the specter of new attacks during an emergency council meeting, held at the request of British officials who have accused Russia of using “a military-grade nerve agent” to target a former military intelligence officer who committed treason. Russian diplomats have denied responsibility for the incident, but British investigators say they have identified the poison as a chemical weapon produced by the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
“Time and time again, member-states say they oppose the use of chemical weapons under any circumstance,” Haley said. “Now one member stands accused of using chemical weapons on the sovereign soil of another member. The credibility of this council will not survive if we fail to hold Russia accountable.”
“A hysterical atmosphere is being created by London,” Russian Ambassador Visaly Nebenzia told the Security Council. “We would like to warn that this will not remain without reaction on our part.”

Russia faulted the United Kingdom for taking action before submitting to a formal investigation brokered by Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. “Those experts will not be convinced by their argument,” he predicted.

Does this irresponsible idiot know what evidence means? Does anyone in the West care about evidence? Or is assertion all it take to take the Anglo-American Idiocoracy to war?

Those who object to launching wars for Israel, should abhor the idea of doing the same for the “Perfidious Albion,” aka Britain.

2: How Do You Know You’re A Neocon? You Won’t Hogtie Nikki Haley To Save The World

Iran, Neoconservatism, War, WMD

The Global Village Idiot, neoconservative Nikki Haley, doesn’t want sovereign states to talk behind her back. Even if it’s to avert a nuclear holocaust. Via the Ron Paul Institute:

North and South Korea have agreed to hold high-level talks, to re-establish a direct communication link, and to participate in the coming winter Olympic games. Taken together, it appears a significant step toward reducing tensions on the peninsula and reducing the risk of catastrophic war. You would think the US would be pleased at the developments and hopeful that diplomacy might take over from saber-rattling. But you would be wrong. US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has poured cold water on the developments, screeching that North Korea must first give up its nuclear program before talks can even take place.

* Haley is also Yankee supremacist who, as South Carolina’s governor, did away with Southern heroes and history. That’s very neoconservative.

* With the same oblivion she’s showing the two Koreas, Haley declared that “removing Assad from power was one of a number of priorities for the US.” Hers is Jacobin interventionism. It’s not American and it’s never “America First.”

* Congenital idiots like Haley and her neocon cohort truly believe North Koreans, upon invasion, will come to love her and hate their chubby leader. Not at all. Most people do not wish to be told how to live by foreign busybodies like Haley. And even if North Koreans wanted Americans to subsidize their freedoms with America blood, the duty of an American leader is to Americans First.

The Nicest Letter About The Worst Of Times: The Invasion Of Iraq

History, Ilana Mercer, Iraq, War, WMD

Subject: Thank You

Ilana,

Years ago, in the early months of the Iraq War, I read my first one of your columns. You were against the war and pretty much predicted what would happen. I was so ignorant about what was really going on, and emailed you mistakenly calling you a liberal. You responded and called me a fool! It caused me to question my position, and was the beginning of my “red pilling”. As Tucker Carlson would say, “Thank you for that!”

Thanks again for keeping your foot on the pedal against this nonsense, insanity and, well, pure evil. I don’t even recognize our country anymore. This “thought crime” stuff is getting pretty scary.

Sincerely,
TK

This is the nicest letter. It takes a strong man to have written it after all those years. I regret calling the reader a “fool.” He clearly is no fool. (I would never do it today. It was wrong. But look at what I was dealing with. The readers were constantly trying to get me fired.)

A recent column this writer wrote hearkens to the times the reader remembers. “Beware The Atavistic Dynamics Undergirding Two American Wars” connects the “mass contagion” of the Iraq years to the “hysterical contagion” ongoing.

Support for the work done in this space is always needed and appreciated (PayPal: ilana@ilanamercer.com). It remains a largely “excluded perspective,” as Ron Unz puts it.

Rocket Man & The Messy Calculus Of Weapons Of Mass Destruction

BAB's A List, Foreign Policy, Military, War, WMD

Writes Barely A Blog’s resident physicist Myron Pauli:

Missile defense like the Israelis had against the HAMAS missiles “worked” because:

1. The missiles were poorly guided – hence only a limited number required defense.

2. The missile attack was not near-simultaneous – hence the system was not overwhelmed.

3. The missiles did not have nukes – hence they either fell harmlessly or one or two
hit a home or building with limited damage.

However, 34 years after Reagan’s “Star Wars” speech of March 23, 1983 and half a trillion dollars, we are still as vulnerable to massive damage in a nuclear war.

The other reality is that one cannot decouple “defense” from “offense” in that the US may be more likely to be offensively “reckless” if we think (real or delusion) that we are “invulnerable.”

As to THAAD (Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence): The Department of Defense contractors believe in them, but then they are just tested in DoD controlled scenarios. Still, China and North Korea think they are aggressive and this might get them to be more on a “hair trigger” to launch if they think the US is going to start a war. It is always a messy “calculus” of mass destruction.

The history of America’s “Hitler of the year” villains like Saddam, Qaddafi, Assad, and now Kim Jong Un is that the US seems incapable of learning from its mistakes. Kim Jong Un learned to never give up nuclear weapons – they are his lifeline. Even if he fired three at Seoul and three at Tokyo and only one got to hit both cities – that is enough of a threat to scare the shit out of everyone. With nukes, it doesn’t matter if you can stop “most” or if a few still get through!
