I do worry about this , so far I don't see much the people can do to stop this looking at protests not working and impeachment off the table . No one or at least not enough people are willing to do a general stike so what are we let with ?

This Lieberman deal with 97 to 0 votes also troubles me as well as the August vacation here and in Iraq .

I can't get a clear picture of what these carriers in and arounf the gulf means or how many are actually there , as if we would have their secret war plans handed out in plain view for all to see .

They are drumming up the terrorist attacks which also IMHO fot right into this madness and insanity .

We don;t know where most of these criminal are and what they are up to , we do know they are busy making plans and their plans always spell disaster .

So where does this leave us , I certainly have no answers , only questions and concerns .

They have been beating this Iran war drum for over a year now and it sounds very similar to how we lead up to Iraq . People say the people won't be fooled again well just what will the people do if they go ahead and attack Iran , we can't seem to stop them from their escalation and the senate handed them their funding so how can we stop them from this pending attack , once they do it all bets are off , they don't care about the people or how much death and destruction they cause , this should by now be obvious .

2. that is why I called Pelosi and left a message asking her to start impeachment
proceedings.

Once September comes I fear war with Iran will be underway if only as a distraction from the disaster in Iraq. It worked so well with Afghanistan, why wouldn't Rover try it again?

this is not going away, they need to hear us, Impeachment is a cure for a Constitutional crisis. And these Senators and Repigs know exactly what is happening even Boxer said we are closer to a dictatorship. They try to handle us with sanitized gloves when we all know very well what kind of a$$holes we are dealing with. No, these are thugs in power, and they have committed crimes beyond our imaginations, and they are still sitting there, no, Impeachment is the only way, call these Senators and Reps up, and tell them that we Demand it. really, this is our country and we have to take it back.

3. this group in the executive...
has never hidden what they were up to. PNAC published it's plans a long time ago. What makes you think that the rumors are not the truth?

6.  I do know about PNAC's plan .
I don't feel it's a rumor but the truth , what I was saying is we don't know at this moment how far their plans have gone and what part of the plan we are in now . I know their goal was to take over the ME and control it and the oil by the war machine . It's just that I can't figure out through all the issues which cloud things where we are now in this PNAC plan .

You hear all about the carriers being there then you hear this is normal rotation , I feel this is not normal rotation simply because these carriers are there in this time and seem to have a mission in the process .

It gets confusing because people hope this will not happen and try to find the hope it won't . All things seem to point to an attack and soon as far as I can see . We are dealing with criminals working in the shaddows here with big money to be made .

4. You're Dealing With A Cornered Rabid Animal
First...read Bryant69's reply about the Liebermann ammendment:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Next...Iran is both the distraction and the incentive to the 26%'ers...one that can't be dismissed, but let's look at a little reality.

The military is over-extended and any attacks on Iran would stress the military beyond the breaking point. They are having major moral and material problems in Iraq...an Iran folly could push the military into a situation similar to Germany in 1918.

This regime and its enablers are trapped in their lies and corruption. The endgame now is to delay any accountability as the situation unravels from beneath them.

Our way to tie boooshie's hands lie in putting pressure on weak-kneed Senate Repugnicans to allow up or down votes...force booshie to veto and fight bills and turn the tables on this game. Force him to spend his time and dwindling resources holding together his own gutless party to keep his wars for profit going.

7. It cycles and cycles and cycles
We were going to attack Iran in Jan 06, we were going to attack Iran in the speing of 06, we were going to attack Iran in the fall of 06, lather rinse repeat for this year. You can believe what you like about the we're going to attack Iran, myself I think it's a diversion akin to crying wolf and don't give it a bit of attention. Now after I post this I will do like all the other we're going to attack Iran threads and hide it so I can concentrate on more pressing problems.

10. The lesson about 'crying wolf'
is that eventually, the wolf shows up.
