64. What is it they want this time?
I fail to see what they would want to achieve with attacking Iran, while I have no doubt they want to attack.

Is it about driving oil prices even higher? Are there too many bombs left to drop, is the military industrial complex not making enough $$$ Iraq? Or the most frightening, they want to consolidate their power by manufacturing an "emergency", call off the elections etc.?! ( in that case, congrats to everyone who voted for kyl-lieberman for fucking yourself over! ) shrub will be on his way to texas and cheney will take over or what? And do they think they can lie America into another war, after Iraq? Thinking about it, don't want an answer to that...

Even if you could stay in power this way, you would have such a mess at your hands, what "fun" would it be to reign over it? Economy down, probably significant military losses ( Iran is not Iraq 2003 ), further degraded standing in the world AND owing money to china ( who are on pretty friendly terms with Iran, afaik )...
I mean, nobody in their right mind would want to provoke the consequences this might have... but therein lies my problem I guess...


PS : REALLY glad impeachment is off the table for over a year now, while confused-to-the-core Pelosi is babbling about some clinton administration offering Obama a vp seat. She is such a disappointment, it's inconceivable. What did she say when she took over? "For the children" or something like that...well, not so much, I guess. Pathetic.
