coming war with Iran
This is from Juan Cole's web site this morning: he posted an article written by Larisa Alexandrovna from Raw Story, about war with Iran:


Why censor Dr. Leverett's opinion piece on Iran when the CIA already cleared it?

Now given this entire context, ask yourself again why Saddam Hussein is being executed now, during Hajj even? What is the urgency?

What the Bush administration appears to be waiting for, stalling for, while they allegedly mull over the Iraq question is for the naval carriers and other key assets to fall into position. This will happen in the first week of January. Saddam Hussein is being executed (and I would not be surprised if every major networked aired it) to enrage tempers and fuel more violence in Iraq. This violence will justify an immediate need for a troop surge, although I think it will be described as temporary. Remember too that the British press has for the past week done nothing but report that Britain will be attacked by the New Year. Clearly they are preparing themselves for a contingency and that contingency is the massive violence that will erupt across the Muslim world as they watch (and I really believe it will be televised) Saddam's hanging and just before the New Year.

I really believe this is true. I get the same scary feeling right now that I had before our first entrance into Iraq. I was in the streets protesting and hoping that we could get enough public opinion to get them to stop, but it just wasn't happening. They don't care what we think. And obviously, they don't care that the recent election indicated the public's desire to get out now, not create more mayhem.

Right now I think the new Democratic Congress isn't in place yet, and Bush's brain, Cheney, is pushing behind the scenes just as always for more war and chaos, death and destruction, because they just don't understand the insanity of it all and don't care. So long as they keep making money. You know, it is very much like money hungry assholes during WWII supplying the Nazis. American companies. Anywhere the buck can come from. Bush's family has that in its blood as well.

I am one frightened person right now. Nuclear weapons are bound to go off with this kind of insanity running our country.

...common sense. Gulp.

He will have his war even if the citizens of the nation say no, and his generals say no.

It is a war of Commander AWOL's ego Vs. Whatever.

Who could have imagined that a deserter from the Texas Air National Guard could grow up to be in a position where he can send our sons and daughters in uniform off to die far away for republicon crony oil & munitions profits.

Phoooeee!

2.  I feel much the same way
When you realize life is not important to these war for profit freaks then you realize it can just as easily be americans who die off in great numbers just as it was the jews or any other nations people .

They have already proven this with the USA gulf coast and their lack of reguard for any human life or the planets environment . It's all about money and wealth , nothing else other than power for the few .
