The new National Intelligence Estimate on Iran is pretty bleak
Turn that frown upside down! On second thought:
A draft intelligence report on Iran suggests a change in the Tehran regime appears unlikely any time soon despite growing public anger over the country's economic woes, U.S. officials said Thursday.
The report also anticipates little progress in getting Iran to halt its nuclear program or stop supporting militant groups in the region, officials familiar with the draft said on condition of anonymity because the report has not been released.
Just the encouragement President Cheney and Vice President Bush need to amp up the ol' war drums.
The latest in a series of reports from the nation's 16 intelligence agencies, the new National Intelligence Estimate on Iran is nearly complete...
Here we go, having to pre-empt more terrorism. Just watch. We have to fight them over there...again.
Because what if this time they can find their way here? You know, the Iranians have a much better sense of direction than say, the Iraqis who bombed us on 9/11. Why, I'll bet they even have maps.
The report is supposed to come out as early as next week. And, okay this is just a wild guess, but I'll take a chance and predict that Bush will stutter and "um, um" through a lot of badly-worded speeches and Cheney will be interviewed by a very accommodating Timmeh.
Then the even more accommodating corporate news media will find their drum sets and beat us into some spectacularly well-photographed air strikes. And with any luck, CNN will have a whole new war logo, theme song and catch phrase!
And Congress will wail and protest. But since the Nation of Dick answers to nobody, he'll lumber around and snarl and do whatever the hell he wants.
And what will we do? Hopefully enough to stop him and his ventriloquist's dummy Mortimer Bush from creating a disaster that will be even harder to fix than the present
