Once again, the Persian Kitty wins yet another round with Miz Liberty. Of course, Cheney, one of the stupidest warmongers on earth, lead the charge of this latest light brigade baffoons in his latest secret Middle East tour which was, if that is possible, worse than anything Rice could have done. This is why they are sending HER to Russia to insult people and screw up our foreign affairs. Cheney just went crawling on his belly to Ahmadinejad. To save us from our Iraq folly.
The United States and Iran plan to hold landmark talks to discuss security in Iraq, but will steer clear of longstanding differences between the arch-foes, officials said Sunday.
The talks in the coming weeks will involve Ryan Crocker, the US ambassador to Baghdad, and Iranian counterparts, National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe told reporters aboard Air Force One.
"This is not about the United States and Iran. This is about Iraq. This is about Iran playing a constructive policy role inside Iraq," he said.
Hahaha. Once again, my cartoons clearly showed what is really going on. Just as I knew we failed to stop the 'Me go BOOM!' baby Dragon of North Korea, so it is with the crafty Persian cat. Meow. Scratch. We stupidly parked all our ships right off the shores of Kitty Cat's home base. So the cat swiped us in Iraq. Ow. Cheney then flew to the aircraft carrier and yelled at the Kitty Cat and so the cat scratched back.
I'll set this to music: 'And the cat scratched back, the very next day. The cat scratched back, he couldn't be bothered, yes, the cat scratched back the very next da-aaa-aaay.'
My first cartoon of this claw-prone kitty was two years ago. I know the State Department looks at my blog. Can't they see the obvious? And Iran's leaders sent me an email last month, asking about the cat. Heh.
So here it is: Cheney, after 11 top Republicans sandbagged Bush in the White House and demanded he pull out of Iraq before the next election, ran off to the Middle East to see if he could get some way out. He went to the Shi'ites running Iraq and Maliki blinked and said, 'But we need you HERE. You must stay.'
Cheney is stupid but he isn't suicidal. He shoots others, not himself. So he yelped and ran off to the UAE to beg for help. 'Please find some way for us to leave Iraq,' he cried.
U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney arrived in Saudi Arabia's northern town of Tabuk on Saturday after he concluded his visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Cheney was given a red-carpet arrival ceremony at the airport and met with King Abdullah at a royal palace in Tabuk after his arrival.
According to earlier media reports, Cheney would hold talks with King Abdullah to seek Riyadh's help in Iraq, two months after the Saudi monarch slammed the "illegitimate foreign occupation" of the war-torn neighbor.
Obviously the visit with the UAE didn't work nor did the Saudi Royal visit work. I bet, several months ago, when the Saudi Ambassador suddenly left the USA to fight within the family to cut out the pro-Taliban/bin Laden older uncle, to cut him out of the line of succession, I said, 'The pro-bin Laden faction is going to win this fight.' And as usual, I was right.
The Saudis are furious with our invasion and with our inept battle with Super Persian Kitty and they want us O-U-T. They have a new ally, a creature with scales and sharp teeth and sharp eyes. The Chinese Dragon will be their protector as well as the Russian bear.
It gets even more hilarious:
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is holding talks with United Arab Emirates officials in a milestone visit, the first by an Iranian head of state.
Regional security co-operation and trade were discussed, while energy and Islamic issues were also on the agenda.
The Kitty was secretly in the UAE? HAHAHA. I saw this coming, too. Namely, when I drew the cartoon of the Persian Cat sitting on top of a closed gate to the Gulf of Harmuz, grinning because the UAE forbade American planes airspace for flying over Iran in a proposed attack. This game is done. I don't know if our monkey king can figure out, the cat won. Maybe he will. If not, we will be in for more pain. And even less gain.
- Iran and other developing nations on Friday forced a downgrading of the final statement on a review of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, objecting to what they called "imbalance" in a messy end to the meeting.
The setback reflected differences between developing and developed nations over the nature of the most serious threats to the 189-nation NPT's integrity, and cast a cloud over nuclear arms control efforts under the treaty.
Substantive debate was stalled for more than half of the two-week meeting by Iranian objections to an agenda it said gave the West free reign to attack its nuclear program. Diplomats said Iran also took a central role in Friday's rocky denouement.
I suggested to Iran last winter, talking about disarming the Security Council nations is the way to go and sure enough, this is their tactics now. And guess what?
They are right, they are in the moral high standing. We should disarm. If owning WMD is evil then the evilest nation on earth is the USA. From day one, it pissed me off to see the European empires joining the USA empire, demanding all Muslims disarm even as they, themselves were building more nuclear weapons and other WMD. Far from being the Security Council, these nations who have started thousands of wars of aggression over the last 1,000 years should be NOT on such a grave council. The rule should be, only NON-NUCLEAR nations should be able to veto UN votes!
And other nations are very much fed up with all this. And since the USA is going bankrupt and is being beaten to the ground by barely armed religious insurrectionists, it is time to reconsider the entire premise of the UN and our own 'security'.
Taiwan's top envoy in Washington says rival China is taking advantage of the United States' focus on the Iraq war and on North Korean and Iranian nuclear standoffs to boost its military presence and political sway around the world.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Taiwan's new representative in the United States, Joseph Wu, spoke of huge spending increases by China to modernize its military and of a massive Chinese push to secure influence in Southeast Asia, the South Pacific and Africa.
At the same time, he said, the United States seems to be deeply caught up in the Iraq war and other world crises.
And over at the other end of the earth, people now realize what my cartoons have long showed: the Baby Dragon won its confrontation with the world's biggest, most aggressive nuclear power. China continues to do what it planned to do and North Korea is cooperating so long as the US is shoved around, either we finally sign our peace treaty with them or we simply get booted out of Asia. One or the other. Either way, our empire is dead. And this is because of what I uncovered from the IMF data: Japan is selling American bonds and China is buying them. All our 'allies' are selling. Except for the UAE. And note that they are petting the crafty Persian Kitty!
Taiwan can see clearly, their days as an appendage of the USA are ending. Will it be in two years or four? The Chinese hold this key. We might bluster but it won't do a thing for us! We are FINISHED. Game over.
The triumphal road show taken by Pakistan's chief justice at the weekend has been hailed by local commentators as an "epic journey" with "few parallels in the country's history".
Tens of thousands of lawyers, political activists, and members of the public turned out to cheer on Iftikhar Chaudhry as he drove from Islamabad to Lahore.
Mr Chaudhry is whipping up support against his suspension by President Pervez Musharraf, who is also head of the army.
Pakistan has nuclear bombs and rockets. And the Taliban and bin Laden are closing in on this great prize. And what the hell is going to happen next? Well----the world will see yet another great change in direction. I would suggest the UN have an emergency meeting and decide how they will reorganize. And there is precious little time. Disarming the Great Powers is life and death for all humanity.
