Voices of Unreason

America’s Secretary of War Robert Gates released a memo to the Press stating that the USA had no policy in place for dealing with Iran’s nuclear program. The contents of that message have been dribbled to the media who as usual have hit the panic button in fear that the Iranians will launch an Ayatollah missile at New York or Tel Aviv. Armageddon and the Coming of Jesus are frightful images for the uncontrite sinner as well as those not ready to witness the End of Times, however the USA and Iran haven’t spoken diplomatically since the 1979 overthrow of the Shah.

The capture of the American Embassy, Jimmy Carter’s failed rescue attempt,the Iran-Contra Affair, the sale of poison gas to Iraq during the Is-War, the downing of a Iranian jet liner, America the Great Satan, and Bush’s Axis of Evil are but a few of the highlights of the two nation’s failed political strategy against each other. In fact the only time our countries have found common ground was the pact between Ronald Reagan and Islamic Council not to release the hostages to guarantee the defeat of Jimmy Carter in the 1980 presidential elections.

While the chasm between these two government is wide, I have partied with mad Iranians in Paris, London, and Pattaya. We shared the same desires. Life, liberty,and the pursuit of happiness. Our mutual voices are ignored by the media. Instead they listen to the mad like the ayatollah who claimed that earthquakes are caused by women in short dresses and the adoption of the modern world. His counterpart Pat Robertson scored big points with the evangelical clique by damning the Haitian for their pact with the Devil.

“They were under the heel of the French, you know Napoleon the third and whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said ‘We will serve you if you will get us free from the prince.’ True story. And so the devil said, ‘OK it’s a deal.’ And they kicked the French out. The Haitians revolted and got something themselves free. But ever since they have been cursed by one thing after another.”

It’s obvious that when sane can’t get together, then it’s time for the mad to forge the bonds of friendship.

Mad ayatollahs and fucked-up Baptists.

Peace through the meeting of mad minds.

It’s worth a shot.
