Happy Memorial Day

On this Memorial Day weekend it's good to invoke two things that we are taught as children to help our minds grow.

The lost art of memory.

And how to 'connect the dots'

I heard about this 'little soundbite' when it happened, and quickly disregarded it as the 'news cycle' quickly flushed it IN and then OUT.

But then it resurfaces...Just look at the headline; "Iran mosque blast plotters admit Israeli, US links"

Now we should try and invoke the two things i mention at the top

MEMORY..1st, remember the event, the loss of life, the political climate;

George W. and Cheney and co. want war with Iran so their big-dollar firms all get a piece;

Feeding and resupplying the Armed Forces

CONNECT THE DOTS...2nd we try and put this new report of Israeli/US links with a bombing into the 'bigger picture'. Now, as I read the article, it sounds an awful like we are trying to destabilize as legit nation into A. War or B. Takeover.

What the fuck is wrong with America where on Memorial Day I can read this tidbit and see full-frontal deception and war mongering...Even as I watch Ken Burn's epic love letter the noble sacrifices of the Greatest Generation, the country's 'worst generation' are plotting to put our noble boys in the Armed Forces potentially BACK into harm's way.

It really is maddening and heartbreaking.

Please read, remember, and connect the dots. They're counting on you NOT doing so.


Iran mosque blast plotters admit Israeli, US links: report

Fri May 23, 1:46 PM ET

TEHRAN (AFP) - Iran's chief prosecutor said bombers who caused a deadly blast at a mosque in Shiraz had confessed of links to Israel and the United States, the ISNA student news agency reported on Friday.

"Those responsible for the attack against the Shiraz mosque have confessed to having links to worldwide oppression, in particular the United States and Israel," Ghorbanali Dorri-Najafabadi was quoted by the agency as saying.

They also admitted carrying out "one or two minor operations," the agency said, without providing further details except to say the group launched military operations a year ago.

The April 12 blast in the southern city left 13 people dead and more than 200 wounded. Authorities subsequently announced the arrest of 15 people.

Earlier Friday, senior Iranian cleric Ayatollah Ahmed Khatami said people had also plotted attacks in the holy city of Qom, 120 kilometres (75 miles) south of Tehran, and at a book fair held in the capital.

Iran has already accused Britain and the United States of training and financing those behind the bombing. In the past it has also blamed US and British agents based in neighbouring Iraq and Afghanistan for launching attacks on border provinces with significant ethnic minority populations.

The strike in Shiraz was the first in decades in Iran's Persian heartland. The normally placid city is not in a border zone, nor is it home to any significant ethnic or religious minority population.
