The Crazies and World War 3

Professor Juan Cole today has a very incisive analysis of current events in Lebanon, in the context of the neo-Conservatives plans to remake the Middle East.

The administration plan will fail.

It is not for nothing that George Bush, Sr. called the neo-cons the 'crazies in the basement.'

Colin Powel is said to have described the neo-cons, led by Vice-President Dick Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and his deputy, Paul Wolfowitz, as 'fucking crazies'. Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, one of Ronald Reagan's intelligence briefers, has said of this group:

“The people running our policies in Iraq and Iran were widely known in the 80s as the ‘crazies’. You come in on Monday morning and someone would say ‘guess what the crazies did late Friday night’ and you’d know who exactly the reference was to, it was to Wolfowitz, it was to Perle.

The crazies are in charge now. They believe in power and violence and nothing else, and they are moving the world toward a global war. Not only are their plans insane, although with their own insane logic, but we can be sure that they will be incompetently executed, as they were in Iraq. They will fail and we will all pay the price.
