Dueling presidents at the UN yesterday--Bush the street-fightin' alley cat, Ahmadinejad the Siamese, if you please, sprayin' all over the place, and accusing each other of their own crimes.
Bush's supposed shout-out to the Iranian people that their leadership was using "your nation's resources to fund terroism, and fuel extremism, and pursue nuclear weapons"--can I get a "Karl Rove"?--sounds hauntingly familiar.
If you're feeling generous toward Mr. Bush, you could substitute "tout" for "fund" and you'd have a hypocrite who knows whereof he speaks--from experience. Wonder what Bush imagines he's used US resources for if not for same?
Ahmadinejad countered several hours later (keep the kitties apart now, or else!)
that the US was using terroism as a "pretext for the continued presence of foreign forces in Iraq". True, imho, except he left out the part where Iran is benefiting from the situation immensely, and wanted the Bush regime to invade Iraq--who put Chalabi up to it after all?
The Iranian prez also criticized the UN for standing "idly by" during the violence in Lebanon--another spray toward the US who kept the war going, backed it, and probably came up with the idea to use the soldiers' kidnapping as the "pretext" in the first place.
So the tension was high, the kitties can't be allowed to pass each other in the halls this week or the fur will fly, and yesterday's showdown was a stand-off of Saturn-opposite-Neptune proportions. (Dates of their exact oppositions: 8/31/06; 2/28/07; and 6/25/07...the snarly cat fight continues.)
Authoritative Saturn = US; mystical, oily Neptune--always associated with the Middle East...you remember that Neptune was at 6 Aquarius on 9/11/01--the Medina degree...and so 9/11 marked a Neptune Return for Mohammed's entry into Medina--the founding of Islam. And bin Laden well knew this--perhaps Bush did, too!
9.20.06 11:43 am
Friday: See Lim's Limericks to add Chavez to the fight! And now 9.22.06 Armitage and Musharraf are snarly with puffed- up fur. Guess now we know why Pakistan was so QUICK to support Bush after 9/11--Bush was "taken aback", he says, to hear of the bomb-back-to-the-stone-age-threat all right--taken aback that the truth got out. Machiavelli's Stench rises again.
Someone pass the catnip PLEASE...Cosmic Catnip, if you have it.
