How do you think the American People will respond to an attack on Iran?
Will Bush's approval go up or down?

Will it make the chances of Democrats retaking Congress even brighter?

1. Down
All that any democrat has to say is, even if Iran needs attackin', do you trust these guys to execute it properly?

6. exactly how do you "execute" a war properly......?
that is as insane as starting it in the first place....we should not honor the idea of another war by even speaking about it.

5. I don't know about the REST of America, but I suspect my
neighborhood, sometimes known as Teherangeles, will probably ERUPT. EVERYBODY here still has family and friends in the old country. So if Bush kills a SINGLE grandma or grandpa, LOOK OUT!!!!!!!!!!!

10. Badly
The result will be disastrous, there and here. Bush** will finally be seen for the madman he is, excepting the dead-head freepers. The Dems could continue to sit on their thumbs and still win handily if Bush** attacks Iran. But they will not want the absolute catastrophic mess the Repugs will be handing them.

"We broke the world, see if you Dems can fix it."

14. I can't believe that attacking Iran would help bush's approval.
Americans are sick and tired of the Iraq invasion and bush's rating on how he is handling the war keeps tanking. 27 more US military have been killed since the beginning of the month and it's only the 9th!! Does this administration honestly think if we invade Iran Americans will rally around bush?? I DON'T THINK SO!! This war was a gross mistake. Besides, who would fight a war in Iran and who would pay for it? Our country is out of soldiers and money. They would have to have a draft and borrow more money from China to fund it. How did we let this country get into such deep doo-doo?

17. Rally around the flag will
initially be the order of the day for 60%. This percentage will take a nose dive once the draft is re-instated.

18. Shock.
Nobody even believes in the possibility. They tell me we can't attack them or won't given the current situation in Iraq.

19. Scott Ritter said * is going to attack Iran. The Dems taking control
of congress might slow him down, but probably won't stop him.

If the idiot in chief attacks Iran, every person in the country should take to the streets and throw the entire repub party in Gitmo for treason. It's suppose to be illegal to plan a war with one country and use funds to plan it from another war.

20. If it's preceded by a staged attack on this country
which the cabal will immediately blame on Iran, his approval will go up. The cabal is desperate now, and I wholeheartedly believe these people will do anything to maintain power.

25. If Busholini attacks Iran at least a million people should
storm the WH and ________________________. You can imagine the rest.
