91. two options to stop it
pre-emptively impeach the lot of them - not going to happen

the military defies orders - also unlikely under normal circumstances, but maybe, just maybe, that could happen, if they know they have support of the people, and of top-level elected officials.

Biden said he would fight for impeachment if bush attacks; that was a rather lame threat, since by then the genie would be out of the bottle. I would hope that the willingness to make that public statement reflects backchannel communications by him and other leaders. He comes and goes to/from Iraq/Afghanistan a lot; communicates with world leaders regularly, and just may have his own private discussions with senior military. If not him, then some others. Hell, even Pelosi may be doing the right thing in private. We can only hope.

Maybe Admiral Fallon's departure, following so many other military careers ended for not kowtowing to bush, will finally convince a critical mass of them that they need a pre-emptive strike. If enough were to come out and say "hell no" he could not fire them all. We could have the bush version of Nixon's Saturday Night Massacre, which was his ultimate final straw.
