Are We Headed To War With Iran?

You know, the first time bush mentioned Iran and nuclear energy/weapons I had a chill run up my spine. My first thought was “he wants to declare war on Iran”. Everytime he mentions Iran it is always in a negative way, always insinuating that the Iranian government is a terrorist government, if not just saying it outright that they are aiding and abetting the Iraqi insurgency, you can almost see his trigger finger twitch. He is just so anxious to push a button and wipe Iran off the face of the earth it is not funny, and he can’t even hide it.

Now maybe Iran is helping the insurgents, but hell, I’m sure Canada would help us defend ourselves against invaders and vice versa. And let’s face it, in Iraq we ARE invaders. The white house barged in on their territory on the premise of WMDs. I think we can all rest assured that IF Sadaam did have any WMDs he got them from us. The lie was that he was planning on using them on us AND that he was somehow linked to 9/11. We invaded Iraq strictly on LIES.

You can argue all the American soldiers that have been killed and wounded over there; but trust me, we have killed a whole lot more Iraqi’s most of whom were civilians. You can google for the of the Iraqi War death toll.

Here’s one site:

Just Foreign Policy Iraqi Death Estimator

U.S. World and News Report ran an interesting article today. I thought my thinking that bush wanted to declare war on Iran was a bit paranoid but IF the media are picking it up AND printing it…….just how far off-base can I be? And that is a scary thought.

6 Signs the U.S. May Be Headed for War in Iran

March 11, 2008 06:52 PM ET | Permanent Link

Is the United States moving toward military action with Iran?

The resignation of the top U.S. military commander for the Middle East is setting off alarms that the Bush administration is intent on using military force to stop Iran’s moves toward gaining nuclear weapons. In announcing his sudden resignation today following a report on his views in Esquire, Adm. William Fallon didn’t directly deny that he differs with President Bush over at least some aspects of the president’s policy on Iran. For his part, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said it is “ridiculous” to think that the departure of Fallon—whose Central Command has been working on contingency plans for strikes on Iran as well as overseeing Iraq—signals that the United States is planning to go to war with Iran.

Fallon’s resignation, ending a 41-year Navy career, has reignited the buzz of speculation over what the Bush administration intends to do given that its troubled, sluggish diplomatic effort has failed to slow Iran’s nuclear advances. Those activities include the advancing process of uranium enrichment, a key step to producing the material necessary to fuel a bomb, though the Iranians assert the work is to produce nuclear fuel for civilian power reactors, not weapons.

Here are six developments that may have Iran as a common thread. And, if it comes to war, they may be seen as clues as to what was planned. None of them is conclusive, and each has a credible non-Iran related explanation:

Maybe we are all just being paranoid, but I suppose that’s not too bad after all, considering the past 7 years with that maniac in the white house we could all be totally stark-raving mad by now.

One thing is for certain, between bush and the tobacco control folks my eyes were opened and I am fighting mad now……..which just goes to prove that you’re never too old for this sh*t.
