Is Bush Taking on Iran Too?

Picture courtesy of U.S. Department of Defense

In my own mind I can picture the President setting up his game board of the Middle East with his tin soldiers with the full intent of stamping the entire region as “Property of BIG U.S. OIL”. You can literally see the President staging the props for his next conquest and that target is Iran. Piece by piece he is building the set. Iran is building “Nuc’lar” weapons, Iran is funding the terrorists, Iran is going to wipe Israel off the map and as the President builds the set and arranges the lighting the stage and reasoning for his last “Preemptive War” is set.

It should be interesting to see him try and pull this one off now that the entire press of the United States and the world knows that his sources for information are not credible or reliable. His own personal reputation and his word is no longer acceptable as “Good enough for me too” amongst even our staunchest allies anymore.

Over at the Washington Post they have just a sound bite on yet another part to the Bush reasoning to attack Iran. I found it interesting that this information was released in Paris of all places…

U.S. Envoy Says Iran Is Arming Taliban

PARIS -- A senior U.S. diplomat accused Iran on Tuesday of transferring weapons to Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan, where NATO forces are deployed to bring stability to the country.

Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns, speaking to reporters in Paris, said Iran was funding insurrections across the Middle East and "Iran is now even transferring arms to the Taliban in Afghanistan. - Washington Post

All of this preparation for the President to pull the trigger on Iran will give him the reasons he needs to tell the people why our sons and daughters will be fighting and loosing their lives on yet another front. I’m beginning to think this President hates all nations that start with a vowel!

Tell me that I am wrong but wasn’t this the same information we started to hear about Iraq before he gave the go ahead to invade. Was Iraq not lead by a leader that despised the United States so much that supposedly he too was building weapons of mass destruction. The list of accusations went on and on and most of them turned out to be false. Other than Saddam Hussein being a bastard to his own people there was no reason for our troops to invade Iraq.

With all of the suggested possibilities for reasons to attack any sovereign nation given by the Bush administration, I’m keeping a real close eye on them Canadians. They have to be plotting against us during them long cold winters. They might not have yellow cake but I’m pretty sure there just might be some biscuits hidden in a bread drawer somewhere up there.

Mexico is okay because nobody really lives there anymore but that is another discussion for another day.

I just wonder why this admin hasn't actually invaded Iran yet, lied and railroaded the action through like with Iraq. Maybe the only thing stopping them is that most of our military strength has been siphoned to Iraq?

Iran may not be the next dominoe on the table, but it is surely close. If someone doesn't do something SOON, Iran WILL HAVE Nuclear Weapons. Let's face it, a world with a Nuclear Iran is NOT as safe as a world without a Nuclear Iran.

Wishful thinking won't make this go away. If the liberals allow Iran to get nukes because they hate President Bush and want to tie his hands politically, the THEY should be impeached for TREASON, every last one of them.

Hey Chell,

Just got back from visiting your roost. Good luck with the latest adventure. I hope it works for the best.

F&B I have to agree with ya on the nuclear issue. I don't get a warm fuzzy feeling about that issue. Then again you have to know that Iran is "Supposedly" leaving their doors open for outside inspectors.

I disagree with you on the impeachement you mentioned. That my friend is what elections are for. Bush bullying the world into his way or the highway is simply wrong. Would it hurt if he tried just an ounce of honest diplomacy?

Sidebar to F&B, would it be possible for you and I to exchange permanent links on our sites? I'll put yours up as soon as Blogger fixes the problems with changing any information on my template.

This may be a case of the boy crying "Wolf.' Iran is, in my opinion, a genuine threat. Unlike Iraq, where Saddam Hussein was an evil man, the Iranian regime is just plain insane.

Yet President Bush may be calling the proper warning this time but no one is going to listen. I side with F&B a bit on this one...Iran needs to be stopped but it won't happen unless this country is prepared for a REAL war.

And, it's "Nukular" by the way. :)

Mike might have it right -- could be a "cried wolf" thing. I don't think so though, not yet. We haven't really tried REAL diplomacy yet. Why do we work so hard to deal with North Korea but threaten Iran constantly? We not only allowed NK to develop a nuke, but we even allowed them to fire one at Hawaii, yet, our leaders constantly threaten Iran despite the fact Iran has no nukes as far as we know.

Sidebar back to Papmoka; I don't have my own blog right now. I started one once but never spend any time with it. I just troll around a few of my favorites every now and then. After I finish school I plan on getting something going. When that happens, I'll be sure to let you know.
