13. Today Iraq, Tomorrow the world
Last night on The Daily Show, Sy Hersh seemed positive the BushMen plan to attack Iran next, then Syria, then whomever else to totally recreate the Middle East in a fascist take-over.

Hersh envisions the initial attacks on Iran will be by long-range missiles. He says the White House and Pentagon have decided to do this and they will do this.

I'm not so sure. It takes money and we haven't got any in the till. Although the BushMen feel they can just keep raising the deficit and printing funny-money, it is having an effect. The dollar is weak and countries in the world now are balking at lending the US money on the basis of the sales of US products abroad. We're not selling one wants our stuff.

Our power base is shrinking, so I'm not convinced any of the fascistic plans to rule the world are actually going to happen. But what we have done is weakened ourselves to the point of an economic disaster that will make the 1929 depression look like Wonderland. I am more worried about that than our attacking more countries in the middle east.
