This is chilling stuff, given the source.

Pajamas Media has always struck me as Mockingbird for the blogosphere.

The source of the article in the original post is neocon lackey Michael Ledeen.

Yes, this Michael Ledeen:

Quote:Glenn Greenwald has taken Ledeen to task for what Greenwald calls his history of false statements and inaccurate predictions, calling him "one of the most dishonest and ludicrous jokes on the political scene."[28]

Writing in The Nation, Jack Huberman, who describes Ledeen as "the most influential and unabashed warmonger of our time", attributes these quotes to Ledeen:[29]

"the level of casualties (in Iraq) is secondary"
"we are a warlike people (Americans)...we love war"
"Changeabove all violent changeis the essence of human history"
"the only way to achieve peace is through total war"
"The purpose of total war is to permanently force your will onto another people"
"Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business"

The Buchananite journal, The American Conservative has claimed that Ledeen had strong sympathies for Italian fascism and that "Ledeen's careful distinction between fascist 'regime' and 'movement' makes him a clear apologist for the latter."[1] Ledeen is also scrutinized with some regularity at Antiwar.com, particularly by Justin Raimondo.

According to Christopher de Bellaigue of the New York Review of Books, Ledeen has purveyed a "distorted analysis of events in Iran" to his readers, claiming, for example, in National Review online that there were `something like a half a million` Iranians demonstrating the death sentence of Hashem Aghajari on November 22, 2002 when in fact Bellaigue, in Iran on that date, observed only about 5000 students in the biggest demonstration.[30]

"It means this War was never political at all, the politics was all theatre, all just to keep the people distracted...."
"Proverbs for Paranoids 4: You hide, They seek."
"They are in Love. Fuck the War."
