Regime change in Iran now in Bush’s sights
PRESIDENT George Bush has promised that if re-elected in November he will make regime change in Iran his new target.
Bush named Iran as part of the Axis of Evil along with North Korea and Iraq almost three years ago. A US government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that military action would not be overt in changing Iran, but rather that the US would work to stir revolts in the country and hope to topple the current conservative religious leadership.

The official said: “If George Bush is re-elected there will be much more intervention in the internal affairs of Iran.”

The Iranian government announced this weekend that it had successfully eradicated all al-Qaeda cells operating in the country, but the statement comes as leaked reports from the US September 11 Commission show definite links between Iran and the September 11 terrorists.

1. If Chimpy is elected,
we will be in a lot of trouble. This is getting more serious by the hour. This is not a freakin' "trial balloon." He's going for world dominion. Wow, the Pope was right!

4. Does Condi sit in on the meetings...
where Boy Bonehead, Rummy, Wolfie, Colon etal. get all hard over the next opportunity to incinerate innocent people? Imagine her sitting there in a roomful of tent poles. Maybe she gets too lubricious to stay and has to excuse herself.

5. Up in NH/Maine the day of the VP thing,
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 06:25 PM by Gloria
Clark (Clark who??) predicted that Iraq wouldn't be the issue in Nov. it would be Iran/N. Korea.

He must have had a heads up on something, otherwise, I guess it was his usual talent for being prescient.

My dream is that Kerry announces he would be something like the NSC head, and then set him loose...with some sort of authority...to repeat this prediction AND educate the people of this country once again.

I doubt the various shows would touch him now, unless he has some name-tag bestowed upon him by the Kerry clan. "Official Foreign Policy Spokesman"; Official Chief Military/Foreign Affairs Spokesman...or somesuch.
And drag out some of the other members of the Military Advisory Board while Kerry is at it.

Kerry has to stop playing the fringes and this is the issue....

7. For a guy who once pledged to never get involved with
Regime change, this guy sure gets around.

Quite honestly this is great news for our side. Bush REALLY can't afford to be saber rattling like this after the way he bungled Iraq. It's just more undecideds coming our way.

8. He is looking for a connection between
al-Qaeda in Iran and 9/11 and he will do it. We all know they have WMD. This War Mongering SOB will not stop! He wants to Americanize the Middle East and God is on his side. We will not have to worry about 4 more years of * in office the way he is heading it should all be over before that. :argh:
