Gwen Stefani is one of the Great Satan's treasures. Hard, heartbreaking work, honing her craft and perfecting her art with No Doubt. Gaining fans, fame, and superstar stats the Orange County girl with legs right up to her neck breaks out on her own. Her second solo album "Sweet Escape" features a prophetic caveat. Gwen's latest video details an oathbound hot hookup drifting with the season into a detente' amor. Lines are drawn, positions are fixed it's an Early Winter. Mournfully melancholy, there is a forbidding franticness about the track that realizes this semi life/love sitch (like the tune itself) may never resolve.
"It looks like an early winter for us It hurts and I can’t remember sunlight An
early winter for us The leaves are changing color for us"
Just like a seasonal change - the NIE 2007 fallout has shifted the worlds axis. Pretty, pretty colors turn - many disappear. Chilling inevitability. After tons of analysis and disections, the Great Satan's preimer fashion 'stache' grande' is most likely the most "moderately confident"
"Rarely has a document from the supposedly hidden world of intelligence had such
an impact as the National Intelligence Estimate released this week."
Impact indeed. Like catching a long time BFF hanging with the weeded out rock band down the street, the ripples of impact reverbrate and develop into determinded disbelief. Demands and denouncements demand a call for a Congressional investigations. Senator John Ensign points out
"Iran is one of the greatest threats in the world today. Getting the
intelligence right is absolutely critical, not only on Iran's capability but its
intent. So now there is a huge question raised, and instead of politicizing that
report, let's have a fresh set of eyes -- objective, yes -- look at it."
Totally correct - and totally in touch - after all, 3 out of every 4 Americans think the NIE is "...Make believe..." In the Great Satan, smart people openly quiz and openly wonder if strategic supposition sold by supposedly smart people warrant dropping the 'Intelligence' from the Central Intelligence Agency.
Now what?" is hit up repeatedly re: respected realpolitikers, think tank Hank's and their bona fided Missuses. Kissing cousins idea wise - unreal realism with the same ancient played pre911 playbook "We are so last year" Containment, isolation and encirclement abandoned and upgraded to
"Dialogue, compromise, and commerce"
Dialouge? Rapprochment? Really?
Maybe it is time for dialouge and realism. Like, realistically ask why does Iran ally with Lebanese politician killing Syria? Why the joint support and hook up of HAMAS/ Hiz'B'Allah? Heck fire, HAMAS is totally psyched to home wreck honest brokering of the ME's raison de retarde' between the Arab League, the Little Satan and her client state Palestine. Zealously successfully coup'ing against the equally wicked Fatah in Gaza, HAMAS leader K'Leed Mesha'al hangs hoodwise in Damascus, redeems friendly flyer miles to Tehran - the very def of internal interferrence. Just like the CRS release citing NoKo training and stashing expertise in Lebanon How do realists respond to that kind of dialouge?
"...insistence that Arab states array against Iran could further destabilize an
already volatile region..."
Destabilize? Realspeak for sure - totally Bakerized - like the Study Group deal - Iran and Syria might help out stabilizing Iraq as soon as they got through destabilizing Lebanon, Gaza, the West Bank, Kurdistan, Afghanistan, Chechnya and of course - Iraq. Dialouge with Syria hasn't resulted in a blizzard of stabilization or compromise with targeting Lebanon's dwindling population of politicians.
Perhaps the concept of destabilization may actually make a better case for confronting, containing and ultimately regime changing an illegitimate murderously meddlesome oath breaking uranium enriching theocracy.
Fall out from the Nat'l Intell may indeed prove the old school Straussians and Pentagon Vulcans correct about many things. Neocons collectively since the ancient days of PNAC were totally jazzed on creating, sustaining and upgrading a future super cyber military. This fully crunk muscle power - about 30 years ahead of any unfree or semi free state - ever - is maxed to the max.
Boots on the ground, GPS eyes in the sky with worldwide line of sight and communications, fingers on the triggers, weilding high tech enemy annihilation on call with the utmost humanitarianism (brainiac drones that can fly and kill are intelligent weaponry - by def the ultimate in preventing innocent fatalities - also has the added benefit of putting paid to illiterate nonpatriots fave faux equation of American GI = terrorist formula). Facing down regimes that fear FaceBook or unlimited access to the internet could be fun and easy.
Or as an upgraded paraphrase from past UN Ambassador Albright might realistically read
"Why the heck have this 30 year in the future military if we can't use it toSec Def Gates pointedly points out realistically that
eliminate corrupt petty Hitlerian regimes? Regimes that torment their own people
and export torment?"
"The reality is that a number of countries, over the past 29 years, have engagedWhy are these cats so hot for Cold War? Why the addiction to their amoral Cult of Stability? And why the resurrected interest in a diplomatic defeatist mind set? And why not apply a healthy dose of realistic redefinition to realpolitik realism? Stefani's soundtrack sweetly serenades, sorrowfully bows to absurdity
economically with Iran. There are many companies that do business in Iran; many
countries that do business in Iran; that have hosted Iranian banks. There have
been significant economic ties and I see no evidence that any of that has
exercised any kind of a moderating influence on Iranian behaviour whatsoever. "
"Looks like an Early Winter. Why? Why? Why? Why do you act so stupid? Why? Why? Why? Looks like an Early Winter"
