Once the Iran war starts impeachment won't only be off the table, it will out of the vocabulary.

It will be a huge rallying cry for Republicans again and they will answer the call and decry anyone who mentions impeachment as a traitor -- again.

Bush has the whole Congress, not just in his pocket, but up his ass and there's nothing you or I can do about it.

Might as well get the popcorn, watch the demolition of the American Democratic government and prepare our children for a neocon dictatorship for the rest of their lives.

Unless our Congress can move and move FAST to IMPEACH!!!!

Ha. As if that were possible.

2. How about "Remember the _______!"
Cuz sure as shit, if we bomb Iran at least 1, if not several, of those 200 ships in the region are going down - Iran has the anti-ship missiles to do it, and anti-missile defenses on board the ships are less than 50% effective. We could lose as many people in a day as we lost in the first two years in Iraq.

4. But the Fallows article in the Atlantic shows...this was all predicted in the wargames
and diplomacy was the only SANE course of action. But of course we know about Bush/Cheney's mental state now. Bush is wanting 'love' and wants intellectuals to come visit him, while he reclines on the couch.

3. Cheney is just craving for a chance to invoke the COG.
The domineering authoritarian future "First Citizen" has no intention of standing down his administration.

He's just looking for a way to get his Praetorian Blackwater guards controlling the streets.

6. Der Fuerher is already braindead and w/o a script it's laughable
Cheney, with his agenda and PNAC buddies, will run the show and Iran looks to be next up.
