#562 — Apr22.2013 — Rogue nuke state Israel ambassador: wipe NoKo off the map

Bloged in Israelis, America, Koreas by Gutter Grunt Monday April 22, 2013 at about 7:20 am

One of the many interesting news stories that was buried by the marathon bombs coverage last week was this shit-head, Israeli mouthpiece, Dan Gillerman, excoriating Kerry for trying to lower the temperature on the Korean peninsula. Gillerman’s opinion, stated on (you guessed it) FOX news, is that NoKo should be “wiped off the face of the map” because of Kim Jong-un’s recent rhetoric. Gillerman’s rationale? Well, he reckons that by killing 25 million North Koreans the US “will send a message” to Iran, and, of course, that would suit Israel just fine.

Aurora.  Guns don’t kill people.  Bullets kill people.  Let the 2nd Amendment wackos have all the automatic weapons they want.  Ban bullets.  The 2nd Amendment protects the right to bear arms.  It doesn’t specify loaded arms.

Bulgaria.  In it’s PR counter attack against Israel over the Bulgaria bus bombing, Iran’s UN Ambassador Mohammad Khazaee argued in a UN Security Council debate on the Middle East on Wednesday that Israel carried out the bombing.  Khazaee further alleged that he could provide many examples showing that Israel “killed its own citizens and innocent Jewish people during the last couple of decades in order to blame others.”  I cannot remember an incident where Israel has been accused of a red-flag operation in which it has killed Jews or Israelis, other than Arab Israelis.  If any readers can provide any examples, please leave comments.

London  In this first report today from the Daily Mail, is any indication, the London Olympics are headed for trouble.  When the N. Korean women’s soccer team was announced prior to their game vs. Columbia, the idiot organizers put up on the jumbotron each player’s picture, NEXT TO THE FLAG OF S. KOREA.  N. Korea walked off the field.  There is no possible way to plumb the depths of British imbecility.  They are not competent to run an Olympics.

Europe  In this second report from the DM, there is an interesting graphic showing how the EU countries are slipping back into recession — all but Germany, whose GDP is 4% higher than 2008 and growing.  Why is it that Germany is doing so well?  I’ll tell you: It’s their defense contracts with Israel.  For instance, supplying Israel with Dolphin-class, nuclear capable submarines, as reported by the Daily Dish in June.  Where does Israel get the shekels to buy this costly gear?  From the US taxpayer, of course.  How is the US economy doing?  About like the EU’s, not quite as bad.  Maybe the $3Bn the US hands out to Israel each year could be better spent in the US.

Apario federal complaint  Justice Dept. has filed its complaint against Maricopa County’s racist sheriff Joe Apario.  It doesn’t ask for any punishment or fines; it only asks the court to make this creep with a badge follow the Constitution.  Big deal.  When they file a Section 1983 action against him, I’ll cheer.

Israel booted out of Chicago NATO conference.  NATO members and a couple dozen “friends” of NATO are heading to Chicago for an annual conference.  Israel won’t be attending this year, and, man, are they pissed off.  The problem?  Turkey, a NATO member, is flexing some muscle within NATO.  IOW Israel is getting blow-back from its killing 9 Turks on the Mavi Marmara last year.  Good.  They need some blow-back.

Obama = Bush?  Pro Publica has produced a helpful timeline of the Bush and Obama  approaches to torture, surveillance, and torture.  Sometimes it gets a little confusing as to whether Obama has followed up on his 2008 promises, and this timeline indicates that he has in a couple of cases (enhanced interrogation and black sites) but mostly he has continued to degrade the cherished American meaning of human rights.  Waterboarding may be way down, but killing innocent people with drones is going out the roof.

Correction to Okseok Seo story  Yesterday I observed the deathly silence over the death of IAEA inspector  Okseok Seo in Iran.  Turns out CNN ran the story the day before.
