“No Iran War” Angers Bush

If you don’t subscribe to Common Dreams, you really should. This weekend’s edition is loaded for sure.

Apparently, bush doesn’t like it when someone, especially those under his command (he forgets we have a duty to question authority), openly and publically state that there should be no war on Iran.

Check out this story from Common Dreams:

Admiral Fallon’s “No Iran War” Line Angered White House

by Gareth Porter

WASHINGTON — A new article on CENTCOM commander Adm. William Fallon confirms that his public statements last fall ruling out war against Iran last fall were not coordinated with the White House and landed him in trouble more than once with President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

0308 02In an admiring article on Fallon in Esquire, former Pentagon official Thomas P.M. Barnett writes that Fallon angered the White House by “brazenly challenging” Bush on his aggressive threat of war against Tehran. Barnett also cites “well-placed observers” as saying Bush may soon replace Fallon with a “more pliable” commander.

Barnett’s account, which quotes conversations with Fallon during the CENTCOM commander’s trips to the Middle East, shows that Fallon privately justified his statements contradicting the Bush policy of keeping the “option” of an unprovoked attack on Iran “on the table” as necessary to calm the fears of Egypt and other friendly Arab regimes of a U.S.-Iran war.

That anyone in this country would still have faith in bush appalls me. That anyone with an ounce of humanity in them would stand behind him is disgusting. I don’t even think too much of his wife these days either. I certainly couldn’t stay married to anyone this despicable.

He is bound set and determined to get us into another war before the elections. I have NO doubt about that. Congress needs to act and fast. This maniac needs to be stopped!

  1. I’m honestly not all that sure about Congress either. Seems an awful lot of them are doing sneaky deals themselves. However, doing anything that keeps us out of another war, especially war with Iran, is worth doing. Great Job!
