War With Iran?
My time is scarce at the moment, but Justin Ramondo has taken care to write a comprehensive synopsis of events leading us into another misguided war, this one with consequences beyond recovery, assuming we can recover from the war we're currently involved with. I consider this a must read
, and please, don't just skim over the links he provides.
The second Iraq war, like the first, was essentially a project of a faction within the U.S. government completely devoted to the interests of Israel, which they firmly believe cannot be separated from America's most vital strategic objectives. We are being manipulated into war with Iran by the same crowd, and for a similar reason, this time with the active assistance of much of the ostensible "Left," i.e., the liberal wing of the Democratic Party, which is being softened up to roll over and play dead if and when President Bush gives the command to strike. Hillary Clinton is more of a hawk on Iran than most of the Republicans in Congress: she criticizes the administration for not being tough enough on Tehran. The Republicans, she brays, are appeasers: they are letting the mullahs off the hook. She assures us she won't. With a few sterling exceptions, such as Rep. Dennis Kucinich, congressional Democrats, led by the warmongering Nancy Pelosi, take some variant of Hillary's position.

So, are we doomed?
Unless people begin to wake up – and soon – I'm afraid the answer is yes. The great problem is that much of the antiwar movement shies away from the Mearsheimer-Walt thesis, on account of the preliminary groundwork done by the War Party.
