1. It's like deja vu all over again
They may as well repeat the news cycles from 2002. Here we go again and the Dems will get their asses handed to them just like they did in 2002.

2. How about we make a deal with the Republicans?
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 04:42 PM by MikeG
They agree not to attack Iran if we let them blame it on Jimmy Carter.

5. Us and what army?
Of course the fact that there actually DOES seem to be genuine evidence of Iran's involvement with al Qaeda generally and 9/11 specifically needs to be factored in somehow. But post-Iraq (which isn't exactly very "post-" yet) it's kinda hard to figure out what army we'd use to attack 'em, even if it were justified.

6. This is a really bad idea,
If we keep attacking Muslimcountries they are all going to eventually turn on us, along with the rest of the world (those that have not already). This alos looks like a bigger grab for oil, than Iraq, so Europe, Saudis, etc. could start getting extremely nervous and banding together for protection. Germany just released a guy suspected of being involved in 9/11, does that mean we invade them after Iran? Where does this shit stop?

8. Looks like the same neocon alliance that gave us the Iraq war is at work
This almost reads like an ad for a summer blockbuster: From the same Producer that made Pearl Harbor, here is the same cast of characters that brought us Iraq.

Let's not forget our friends from AIPAC:

AIPAC APPLAUDS CONGRESSIONAL LETTER URGING PRESIDENT BUSH TO RAISE IRAN NUCLEAR ISSUE AT G-8 SUMMIT

Washington, D.C. AIPAC applauds both the House and Senate for dispatching strong bi-partisan letters to the President urging him to make Irans nuclear program a principal focus of the upcoming Group of Eight leading industrial nations (G-8) summit in Sea Island, GA. Raising this issue at the summit is especially vital, as the G-8 accounts for well over 40% of Irans international trade.

This effort, led in the House by Reps. Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Joseph Crowley (D-NY), and in the Senate by Sens. John Ensign (R-NV) and Bill Nelson (D-FL), is particularly important given the recent revelations detailing Irans continuing deception uncovered by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and reiterated in its June 1 report. The report points to further evidence that Iran is concealing from international inspectors what the United States says is a nuclear weapons program.

There is only a very limited time to stop Iran before the world confronts the realization that the leading sponsor of international terrorism possesses the ability to produce a nuclear weapon, says the letter. We hope that our G 8 partners, all of whom stress the importance of maintaining the international non proliferation regime, will take seriously their own words of concern about Iran and use their vast economic leverage with Iran before it is too late.
