you are with us or against us

What's In It For Bush?
Suddenly the media is full of Bush (administration) propagandistic assertions designed to make the American public believe that Iran is the enemy that is fighting against our troops in Iraq.
A former member of the National Security Council gave me a possible answer. Bush can bury his defeat in Iraq with a “victory” in Iran.
Here is the victory scenario: Bush and Cheney will claim that their air attack on Iran succeeded in destroying Iran’s (non-existent) nuclear weapons program. The victory claimed by the Bush Regime and the propagandistic US media will “make America safe from nuclear attack.” This will restore Bush’s popularity and move the US back to a 50-50 political split in time for Karl Rove to steal the 2008 election with the fraudulent electronic voting machines built and programmed by Republican operatives.
The former national security official believes that Bush will be able to claim victory over Iran, because Iran will avoid responding militarily. Iran will not use its Russian missiles to sink our aircraft carriers, to shut down oil facilities throughout the Middle East, or to destroy US headquarters in the “green zone” in Baghdad. Instead, Iran will adopt the posture of another Muslim victim of US/Israeli aggression and let the anger seep throughout the Muslim world until no pro-US government is safe in the Middle East.

Following the news on Iran is sickening. The USS John C. Stennis carrier group left Bremerton yesterday to "project" power in the Gulf.

Only Congress has the power to stop the Bush administration. It is a question of politics.

Politics as usual will not win the day. The scenario outlined above is a best case scenario which results in total strategic failure some years AFTER Bush has left office. Congress must step up.

There are worse scenarios latent. And perhaps more likely ones.

Ocean man, take me by the hand, lead me to the land that you understand
Ocean man, the voyage to the corner of the globe is a real trip
Ocean man, the crust of a tan man embibed by the sand
Soaking up the thirst of the land

Ocean man, can you see through the wonder of amazement at the oberman
Ocean man, the crust is elusive when it casts forth to the childlike man
Ocean man, the sequence of a life form braised in the sand,
Soaking up the thirst of the land

Ocean man, ocean man
Ocean man

The shift in news coverage is startling and clearly parallels the buildup to Iraq in both 1990 and 2003. They're likely fishing for a ratings boost, fed by the spew coming from the administration. In any case, one thing is clear -- Iran is in the crosshairs and will be dealt with soon.

Yes I agree. As I re-read the rosy victory scenario in the article above, the echo for me is the nonsense above roses being laid before our troops on their journey to baghdad in 2003, as though they were a troop of jesus's 100,000 strong.

I don't think Iran will turn out that way if attacked. I think it would pre-figure a world war.

Still hoping nukes are not involved, such that Bush will finally be revealed as (something like) the antichrist.
