“I love the smell of naplam in the morning” – Another reason to invade Iran

15 November 2011, 12:12

While we have our own issues down here in South Africa I can’t help but worry more and more about the state of affairs up north.

There is talk in the papers from all around the globe that Israel is planning a pre-emptive strike on Iran and wants it allies, the US and UK,  to join in on the “crusade”, once again under the pretence of finding and destroying Weapons of Mass destruction.

So maybe Iran has nuclear weapons project under way, but who can blame them?  A point rightly made on PrisonPlanet.com by one of the activists there reminds us that one of the most antagonising nations in the world, the US,  is the fore runner in the world of who has used the most atomic and chemical weapons against other nations.  Think about Agent Orange, the nuclear bombs dropped on Japan and the depleted uranium which was used in Afghanistan.

With this in mind, and the fact that the US and it’s allies have been in every major conflict in the Middle East and North Africa for the last decade would also prompt me as sovereign nation to develop a deterrent against a possible invasion.

America has changed considerably since it was founded, and I believe the Founding Fathers are turning in their graves right about now.  America, the land of the Free has changed into a police state where people who are protesting the wars, the expenditure and the cost in human lives are being treated as terrorists in their own country by a militaristic police force, much the same that has happened in UK with the 2011 summer riots.

So here is to another day, with the impeding cloud of doom hovering above our heads, and here is to a quote that sums it all nicely.

Robert Duvall as Lieutenant Colonel Kilgore … “I love the smell of Napalm in the morning. The smell, you know that gasoline smell. Smells like victory.” – Apocalypse Now
