Bush Madness Continues

eymore Hersh reports in The New Yorker
that the Bush administration is actively planning attacks on Iran. Attacks that include the use of nuclear bunker busting bombs to hit deeply buried Iranian facilities.
A government consultant with close ties to the civilian leadership in the Pentagon said that Bush was “absolutely convinced that Iran is going to get the bomb” if it is not stopped. He said that the President believes that he must do “what no Democrat or Republican, if elected in the future, would have the courage to do,” and “that saving Iran is going to be his legacy.”T
he run up to action is typical... UN resolution based on flimsy information, rhetoric about Iran not being a real Democracy, exporters of terrorism, etc, etc. all this planning is going against the advice of senior Pentagon officials and military advisers. Some who say they will resign if this action is actually put into play. Hmm, like General Anthony Zinni? The real motive here is not destroying the nuclear labs and such, but rather to weaken the theocratic structure of the Iranian leadership, and force them to bow under popular pressure from the populace. One official even said that while many think Bush's focus has been Iraq since 9/11 it has actually been Iran which is perceived as the greater threat. Having Iraq as a stepping stone and a fuel depot certainly helps. To my mind this is all insanity. These plans have to be stopped asap. Should Bush continue with this scheme, it would certainly confirm we have a madman in the Oval Office.

You have such a professional looking blog...wish I had your programming skilz.
But to the meat of it, this stuff gives me chills, exactly because they are mad enough to do it.
Yeah, for some reason Jesus hasn't gotten her or me a good programmer program. Go figure.
Well, I guess it will have to be the Iran draft for all the youngsters, but all they do is sit around and play XBOT 10000 anyway. They might as well see a little action; I hear the mountains around Tehran have some good snowboarding. 'Course they may be a tad radioactive by then.
Thank you Pink. I actually don't want it to look "too" professional, the adds, the excessive links and features. i feel the closer one gets to aproximating main stream media the further one gets from the real reasons one such as myself blogs. having said that I will tell you that making a better looking site is not very hard to do. One can Google (blogger templates) to see premade templates that skilled html programmers have made and will allow others to use. thats how I found my basic template. From there you can add your own graphics. ( I would be happy to do graphics for anyone who wants something new. I did watergate summer's banner, and morning martini. Know some basic HTML is good too. Thimgs such as tags beginings and ending. this way you can look at the template code and find things like the header and side bars. always cut, paste and save your original template. Make one change at a time to your template. then preview it before saving. I can, as I have done with others, do this for you, and you can change your password after I make the changes. lastly I suggest everyone use blogroller as I do in my blog. This site keeps all your links and lets you alter and set the order on their website as oposed to getting into the template code. Two other things I also recomend is subscribing to Technorati ( the blog tracker) and stat counter.com (will let you see where everyone is coming from and from where. lots of great stats) Fel free to ask me any questions. I am not an expert, but can point you in the right direction.
The thought of the US invading Iran is chilling - it feels like the beginning of the end to me.
And also, thanks for all the great information. I might take you up on the offer to with banners, etc.
I just cannot believe this Iran thing. I mean I do...it's just damn hard to believe. As if we are not bankrupted enough already! Do you think it is possible for the American public to rise up and demand a special vote (not sure what its proper name would be) so we could let 'them' know that peobably the greatest percentage of us (red and blue) don't want this...or even the war in Iraq at all? If enough of us voted against it...couldn't we keep it from happening? I'd like to think so. Isn't that what a democracy does...or was I sick on the day democracy was talked about in school?
Well, he only has a couple years left for another whiz-bang war!
I guess Barbara never made George clean his plate before he got any dessert.
very sickening prospect ... but he's gotta be gettin' desperate now ... wtc saved his ass a few years back ... beginning of the Iraq war made everyone who criticized him a traitor ... what will nuking Iran do ... force us all to fight for survival?
We're not going to invade Iran.
Someone will destroy their capacity to make nuclear weapons. If Bush does not throw the first punch, the IAF will. While Ahmadinejad has repeatedly defended his promise to incincerate Tel Aviv, he will have to wait until at least the cowardly and traitorous Democrats are back in power. It won't happen on Bush's watch.
If there was a God, I would thank it everyday that a majority reelected Bush and you guys are not in power.
