33. You have laid out many logical arguments , and if ours was a....
logically thinking administration I would agree with you. I share those logical arguments, and have laid those same arguments out,(except for the Sunburn missile batteries dotting the Persian Gulf coast, which I had not known about)and still I believe wholeheartedly that my arguments don't amount to squat, because this administration has an agenda and they are not going to be denied.

This administration has repeatedly ignored the advice of our own military experts, as well as the advice of our own intelligence estimates. So, what makes you think that they will suddenly do the logical thing, which would be sustained diplomacy, ending with a sane mutual agreement and a possible, I say possible new understanding and workable alliance with Iran? This is not going to happen. The Bushies don't want it, and the Iranian leadership is crazy. Their leadership is playing the dangerous brinksmanship game, egging our administration on. The president of Iran, I believe wants a religious war, unifying Islamists throughout the middle east toward their cause.

Some very bad things are going to happen. We are on a collision course, and Bush is not against using a nuclear option. If it is on the table, then he has already come to terms with okaying the use for it, having already stated that he is prepared to do what no other president would think of doing.

God help us all.
