Iran: Attack us and U.S. interests will 'burn'
Aide to top cleric warns that Tel Aviv, American ships will also be targetedMSNBC Reports
If attacked, Iran is pledging that we can expect WWIII. They plan on using oil as a weapon against the U.S.. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that a break in the oil supply now would be deadly to the U.S. economy.
Can Iran use oil to gain allies like Russia and China; Iran being their major supplier?
It must be clear to even the blindest of idiots by now that invading Iraq has put us in more danger than we were the day after 9/11. The rigid and goofy ideology of the Neocons has put this nation in more danger than we have been in since, possibly, the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Unfortunately we don't have JFK in the White House. Instead we have two men, both of whom have committed themselves and this nation to following the plans outlined in the PNAC document even if that plan is wrecking the economy, slowly destroying the military and the nation itself. With their party in shambles, leaving the next administration, whom they assume will be Obama and a Democratic Congress, with a huge mess by striking Iran would be a good thing for them. Whatever happens as a result of their Strangelovian policies, the American public, with the attention span of a gnat, will blame the Democrats. At least that is probably what they think. I'm not so sure. The people may well blame both major political parties unless we are given a very good reason not to. There has never been a better time to throw our energy into building alternative parties. Of course, that will take time. In the mean time, my energy will go to supporting Democrats in 2008.
Bush and Cheney need to be warned that an attack on Iran without the permission of Congress and the clear will of the people is an impeachable offense. It seems clear that the plan to attack Iran now involves Israel making the first strike. If Iran retaliates in any way, Bush and Cheney intend to launch a major air offensive, leaving our over-extended troops in Iraq wide open for slaughter.
(Bush is always quick to point out that Israel has a right to defend herself. Doesn't Iran have the same right?)
Surely not, you may think. Surely they would not do such a thing. Every time I have thought that, they have done exactly what I thought they surely wouldn't. If there is one thing we should all know by now, it is that Bush, Cheney and their minions in every executive agency will do whatever they please, because for some reason, no one seems to be willing or able to stand up to them and for America. I can only speculate as to why that is is the situation in D.C.
That speculation, however, in for another post.
