OK, I'll accept that the delusional Neo-Cons running foreign
policy, including Bush, think that they can take out or counter
the Sunburn and other related missile technology that Russia and
China sold Iran as a counter to the US Aircraft Carriers.
Just because they do, that does not make it so.
The result of all this is going to be the destruction of the
American Fleet, the US economy and a world wide depression.
The good times are over.
I truly do not know what tactics to use now to deny the
governmental power to this current cut throat regime in DC.
Clearly, what we have done so far has not worked.
Bush has killed us all. And, we will go down in the history books
"...Missiles launched from Iran could do widespread damage
not only in Tel Aviv, but also in Paris, Berlin and Brussels...".
So what? The point that everyone seems to miss is simply this:
Why would Iran want to hit any of these cities? It is feasible to
suspect that Iran does indeed possess such long-range capability,
but why would she want to launch an attack on Paris, Berlin and
Brussels? Just for fun? She has no doctrine of preemption that we
know of, so if she does strike it will only be in retaliation.
Should the US attack Canada because a few years from now she may
decide to build a bomb...? Just because European cities can be
hit from Iran does not mean that she is planning to do so.
Remember, Blair said Iraq could have bombs landing on London in
45 minutes. That was a blatant lie told to justify the attack on
Iraq. The very fact that this type of statement is made means
that they are intending to provoke a confrontation with Iran and
want to ensure that they render her incapable of responding. If
they were not planning to attack, there would be no need to worry
about her taking out capitals where people are most likely
driving around on her oil.

IRAN IS NEXT
The war on terror and the play on 9/11 was getting a bit
difficult to extend to other nations, so the inaugural theme was converted
to a war on tyranny. No doubt it was all carefully planned. George Bush
talked about our obligation to spread freedom across the globe, and then
Dick Cheney dropped a bomb when he raised the possibility that Israel
might decide on her own to destroy the Iran's nuclear facilities. But
the Seymour Hersh article in the New Yorker magazine may have been a
genuine leak. It stated that the U.S. was conducting covert operations in
Iran in preparation for a possible military strike. According to the
article, the president has authorized the Pentagon to send secret commando
forces into as many as TEN NATIONS in the Middle East and South Asia.
The secret forces could potentially carry out combat operations or even
terrorist acts. Hersh said that Bush used the Pentagon for the missions
instead of the CIA in order to avoid having to report to Congress.
The administration called the article a bunch of lies, but they did not deny the general thrust of what Hersh had said. Will all
of this prepare the American public for more military action in the
Middle East? Even George Bush must realize that we do not have enough troops
for such a venture, but he obviously believes that he must do something! Can
he get others to do it for him? What about Iran? For a number of years
the International Atomic Energy Agency, with prodding by Israel and
European powers, has been trying to get that nation to open up its
facilities to the UN inspectors. The IAEA is very concerned. Missiles launched
from Iran could do widespread damage not only in Tel Aviv, but also in
Paris, Berlin and Brussels. The public has no way of really knowing
whether Iran's nuclear program poses an imminent threat or if it more
closely resembles Iraq's phantom weapons of mass destruction. But the
more alarming development is the report that Bush used the Pentagon
rather than the CIA so that he would not have to answer to Congress. He got
rid of Colin Powell who told him he needed more troops in Iraq, and now
there will be no dissent within his cabinet. This president is in need
of assurance that he is right, and his ego demands that everyone
know he is in charge. Those around him understand the rules: rubber stamps
get medals; all others get fired. "Advisors" will fall in line
telling him only what he wants to hear and saluting as they leave meetings.
From all appearances George Bush believes he has God on his side and a
mandate from the American people. The article in the New Yorker has raised
concerns world-wide that George Bush intends to rid the world of tyranny
even if he has to flatten cities and kill and maim thousands. President Bush
has a noble idea, but Americans could well ask if it is realistic and
worth the human sacrifice. Is there any spine left in Congress?
