Just Switch The Final Consonant

Here we go again. According to Seymour Hersh, the Kowboy Koward of Krawford is getting' ready to saddle up and ride into Iran with six-guns a-blazin'. Yee haw.

Why? See if any of this sounds remotely familiar...

According to this article (emphasis mine),
There is a growing conviction among members of the United States military, and in the international community, that President Bush’s ultimate goal in the nuclear confrontation with Iran is regime change. Iran’s President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has challenged the reality of the Holocaust and said that Israel must be “wiped off the map.” Bush and others in the White House view him as a potential Adolf Hitler, a former senior intelligence official said.
It also states that

“This is much more than a nuclear issue,” one high-ranking diplomat told me in Vienna. “That’s just a rallying point, and there is still time to fix it. But the Administration believes it cannot be fixed unless they control the hearts and minds of Iran. The real issue is who is going to control the Middle East and its oil in the next ten years.”

And...
In recent weeks, the President has quietly initiated a series of talks on plans for Iran with a few key senators and members of Congress, including at least one Democrat. A senior member of the House Appropriations Committee, who did not take part in the meetings but has discussed their content with his colleagues, told me that there had been “no formal briefings,” because “they’re reluctant to brief the minority. They’re doing the Senate, somewhat selectively.”

The House member said that no one in the meetings “is really objecting” to the talk of war. “The people they’re briefing are the same ones who led the charge on Iraq. At most, questions are raised: How are you going to hit all the sites at once? How are you going to get deep enough?” (Iran is building facilities underground.) “There’s no pressure from Congress” not to take military action, the House member added. “The only political pressure is from the guys who want to do it.” Speaking of President Bush, the House member said, “The most worrisome thing is that this guy has a messianic vision.”
My husband says, "Don't worry - thay can't possibly do that."

I myself do not have that confidence. This ain't our first rodeo, cowpokes. The evidence is to the contrary. They already have, and they're champing at the bit to do it again.

Iran doesn't need nuclear weapons. Regime change starts at home.

Not too many years ago, I would have agreed with your husband. But the past few years have shown us just how arrogant, isolated, and incompetent our current "leadership" truly is. And we continue to let them drive us down the road to Armageddon. Yoga's comment about regime change is right on the money!

I think I'll put my cross-stitch homily back up...

I think they want to attack Iran because the disastrous effects of that will make Iraq look like a success in comparison.

Yeah - this little tidbit of news scares the pants off of me. The damage this man can do over the next two years.....If he starts a nuclear war - it will herald in decades of terror world-wide. And America will be targeted - by much more than a few stone-age terrorists. My fear is that the rest of the world will see America as a continuing threat and try and take us out - permanently. Bush could effectively destroy this country in its entirety once and for all!
