Shaking my beliefs to the core

Strange quote du jour:
I havenít heard anyone lately saying they want a war with North Korea, for example. And the president was wonderful in that regard during some very tense deliberations over North Korea. He essentially put his foot down: I do not want a war on the Korean peninsula. And that was very helpful.
-- Lawrence Wilkerson, formerly Chief of Staff for Secretary of State Colin Powell, in a speech Wednesday (via Billmon).

W actually STOPPED a war? Why against that particular member of the axis of evil? The one that seems to actually have nukes? Okay, that's one reason. But another? Perhaps it's because this luney (sic intended) is still calling the shots:

The sleazebag billionaire pervert megalomaniac in the back right is the Rev. Sun-Yung Moon, who is heavily invested in South and North Korea, as well as the Bush family. I learned more about this whacko than I really wanted to know by reading Robert Parry's excellent book, Secrecy & Privilege: Rise of the Bush Dynasty from Watergate to Iraq. Why should you care about Rev. Moon? Because he basically OWNS your government.

Still--aWol preventing a war? Pretty amazing stuff, if true.
