I hate to have to scare everyone, just when we're feeling like perhaps the Bush Administration might have to confront lawmakers in both parties, all who've grown tired of foreign policy decisions reached by Ouija Board and men who as little prep-school snots got picked last during recess kickball games.
Yet, my pal Sean-Paul Kelley, editor of the Agonist, has a pretty scary account of the Bush Administration's current march to war in Iran (unlike many of the pajama-clad warriors in Bushland, Sean-Paul has actually been to Iran). A snippet:
The drumbeat for an attack on Iran is getting louder and louder.Read the whole thing. You'll inevitably think one thing to yourself.
Fears of Iranian economic dominance in Iraq are being stoked, although the story is already weeks, if not months old. We've also been told the Iranians are cooperating with the North Koreans in their bid for nuclear weapons. Never mind that the North Koreans use plutonium in their reactors and the Iranians use uranium. Ooops.
Here we go again.
