The Drums & Dogs of war

About: the drums of war on iran

Too bad S's sense of humor ran up his ass as he searches for wars to be anti-war to & thus gain a sense of self-righteousness.  This cartoon photograph is hereby contributed to all those who need levity at the moment. The silent questions you ask (yourself) while researching or reading (or posting) give you the answers you most urgently want, but not necessarily the truth of the matter. Ask better questions!
.... let's unleash the dogs of war! ....

Seth: ... I don't like to giggle about war. 
... thus proving where your sense of humor escaped to ..... here is another picture of what started out as an email entitled Why Dogs Bite People:

 I believe that the gods are laughing at what man thinks serious. Zen probably bares me out.

the truth of the matter as to what propells you in 4240.

What propels me in 4240 is a study of History.  That item has already helped me see this thing developing and changing over time.  I wish i had done that for the Iraq war.  There is nothing sinister in trying to ascertain if a war is coming and "how fast".  I actually think it is my duty as a citizen.  Note that today i was able to report unexpected good news , if we can believe it: apparently that war will not be happening with Bush's approval before the next president takes office.   Note also that this news is about something that may or may not have been said in May, 2008 - not September 2008.  We are just learning about it now. 

And since you seem to like to make big, ot splashes on my items ... here is my illustration of dogs of war.  Follow 3596 to it's source.  It's not a cute picture like yours.  I don't like to giggle about war.

Nice dog of war.  The purpose of 4240 is to chronicle a particular war.  To maintain that purpose,  i don't think i deserve to be insulted. 
I could dedicate this item to levity & remove your comment.  Basically if you can't laugh at yourself you're fucked.  You might look beyond the perceived insult to the truth of the matter as to what propells you in 4240. You & the rest of humanity might ask questions like how can we transform this evil into something good rather than how fast is the war coming. Ahmadinejad at the UN seems to want to crank it up - how can the UN crank it down? Insults are only there if they hit target & there's no way out.

... & FYI the dogs of war quote: Julius Caesar, Act III, scene i.
Anthony:
       "O, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth,
  That I am meek and gentle with these butchers!
  Thou art the ruins of the noblest man
  That ever lived in the tide of times.
  Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood!
  Over thy wounds now do I prophesy,--
  Which, like dumb mouths, do ope their ruby lips,
  To beg the voice and utterance of my tongue--
  A curse shall light upon the limbs of men;
  Domestic fury and fierce civil strife
  Shall cumber all the parts of Italy;
  Blood and destruction shall be so in use
  And dreadful objects so familiar
  That mothers shall but smile when they behold
  Their infants quarter'd with the hands of war;
  All pity choked with custom of fell deeds:
  And Caesar's spirit, ranging for revenge,
  With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
  Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
  Cry  'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war;
  That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
  With carrion men, groaning for burial."
I hope that somewhere down the line that fool Ahmadinejad gets a similar taste if he does something so foolish as to attack Israel or the US with atomic bombs!
