The Tonkin Gulf 2008?! These Devils Are Insane!

From CNN:

“Iranian ships ‘harass’ U.S. Navy, officials say

The U.S. military said there has been a “significant” confrontation involving five Iranian Revolutionary Guard boats that “harassed and provoked” three U.S. naval ships in international waters over the weekend. The Iranian government responded today the incident was “something normal” and had been resolved, The Associated Press reported.”

If you believe this, I’ll show you where some weapons of mass destruction are in Baghdad.  They must believe we ARE this stupid?!

  1. As far as I can tell, we ARE that stupid. I linked to your blog from the story on CNN.com. Sadly, most of the other blogs I’ve checked out treat the story as gospel and even go so far as to denounce any potential disbelievers and decry any references to the Gulf of Tomkin from the “nut blogs.”

    Such is the state of America…if it comes down from the Pentagon, it must be true, right?

    I guess there are two types of people in the world, those who think on their own, and those who wait to be told what to think. I saw the story on CNN TV this morning and immediately smelled something awful. Far too many details to be coming from the Pentagon, and furthermore, it just doesn’t make sense…Iranian boats would happen upon three U.S. warships in international waters & decide, “hey, let’s mess with these guys, send some threats, drop some stuff in the water, that’ll scare ’em.”

    As if anyone would be that stupid….
    then again…it was on the news, so it must be true, right?

  2. Oh boy, it’s the Gulf of Tonkin all over again.

  3. Oh, please. The whole “incident” is nothing more than propaganda from the Warmonger-in-Chief. He desperately wants to get us into a war with Iran before he leaves office.

  4. i have taken to being skeptical of simply everything out of the press or white house area these days. burning tapes, misleading 9/11 commission, wmds, osama bin laden alive- i mean i could go on for days with all of the lies and half-truths these folks spew forth. no one should be sitting back for the status quo anymore- everyone should be questioning everything- period.

  5. It’s all about spin doctoring and language where they’re concerned. They’ve already made it clear that they need to solidify their hold on the area and that the occupation of Iraq was only one piece of the puzzle. Israel helps. But Iran will be useful, too, I think it’s because of its location? Correct me if I’m wrong.
    Now, all they need to do, for the sake of maintaining the illusion is to convey to the citizenry who they’ve undereducated for decades and taught to rely on double speak, that there is a reason for them to attack Iran. If they need to construct teeny tiny boats, swarming like tiny flies around a giant armed amerikkkan ship as an international incident, if that works, they’ll use it. The amerikkkan public, so raised to respond to indirect speak, to double speak, will mostly believe the lies they’re being told. The invasion is already a done deal. They just need to locate the “weapons of mass destruction”.

  6. DarkD: Make it plain, sista, make it plain!

  7. Small, teeny tiny little boats huh? Might I remind you of the USS Cole. How big was the boat that killed and injured dozens and nearly sank that ship? Are you willing to risk your life to go out there and find out what its like? Didn’ t think so

  8. Hasnotaclue: And the USS Cole was in our coastal waters, correct?

    Aside from 911 which was likely an inside job, all the “action” we Americans or our military confront is on someone else’s turf. Perhaps we shouldn’t be meddling in other people’s affairs (and stealing their resources).

  9. @Darkdaughta “…But Iran will be useful, too, I think it’s because of its location? Correct me if I’m wrong.” This is not so much a correction but an addition to the cipher. Land strategy isn’t the issue with Iran. Iran created the Iranian Oil Bourse (google this) on the French stockexchange, for the buying and selling of oil accepting the Euro as the currency of choice. The US greenback is still the supreme currency of choice for the buying and selling of oil. But, with Iran creating the Euro as an oil marker on French stock exchange, this and China along with Russia contracting to buy oil from Iran with the Euro is the deepest threat yet to the US greenback and this is killing the dollar, you see it as inflation/prices going up. This it the reason for what appears to be an inevitable attack on Iran. If you Rememer both Russia and China refused to participate in attacking Iraq, simply because they had deals to buy oil from Iraq using the Euro. Thus leading to the death of Sadaam.
    So watch out Iran!
    @Freeslave-Gulf of Tonkin was the first thing that popped into mind when I heard this story.
