<center><h1><span style="color:red;">Haven't we heard this somewhere before?</span></h1></center> I haven't slept as well as I usually do since out Great and Fearless Leader gave an address this last Tuesday that wasn't so much about securing Iraq as it was about dragging Iran and Syria into this whole ugly mess. Now, I'm not normally an anxiety ridden person. You can't be in my profession, that of registered nurse, and lead a normal life. But I just woke up with this leaden feeling in my belly (<i>No, it wasn't the Taco Bell and egg-salad I had last night</i>), and the words of Secretary of Defense, Bob Gates, echoing in my ears as he testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Friday. <blockquote>"Oh gosh, you sillies. Of course President Bush doesn't have any plans to attack Iran. Except...you know...as a <b>LAST RESORT</b>. </blockquote> Now whereinthehell have we heard that before. <span class="body-bold"></span> <blockquote>"...<span class="body-bold">the President continues to seek a peaceful resolution. War is a last resort.</span>" - Scott McClellan, 11/12 /02 White House Press Briefing</blockquote> This coming long after Chimpy McPresident and his merry band had decided to Iraq was to be plucked like an over-ripe fruit. Given this Presidents past history, I could only wonder why someone in Congress didn't fall all over themselves trying to introduce a Resolution of Inquiry in the House to get the ball rolling on impeaching these crazy bastards before they do something we all will regret more than we already regret invading Iraq. How could they not see the rocks this President, and his administration, are steering this ship of state towards. This administration reminds of nothing so much as a bunch of monkeys playing with a box of matches in a fuel refinery. One spark, at any moment, and the whole thing will explode in a conflagration that will engulf, not just the region, but quite possibly the entire world as well. One that will make the last world war look like a Sunday school outing in comparison, and one from which the United states will not emerge unscathed or victorious. When Seymour Hersch wrote his article about US forces moving into Iran back in April of 2006, he and anyone who agreed with his analysis, were dismissed as being alarmists and in need of some psychotherapy. But the reality is staring us in the face...Here...Now. This President is locked into some sick, messianic vision, and he is determined to see that vision through to the end regardless of the cost in blood and treasure...Regardless of the consequences to this nation or the world. That Congress is not dropping their partisan squabbling in order to check this President and his administration is a mystery. Better we have the president and his administration declared <i>non compos mentis</i> and a constitutional crisis than an expanded war in the Middle East and likely beyond.
