    There was a five year gap between the passage of the Iraq Liberation Act and the actual invasion. Undoubtedly, 9E was the Christmas present needed to justify the invasion and occupation. We are approaching the five year mark of the Iran Freedom and Support Act. It provided Bush with ten million dollars of carte blanche propaganda and laid the ground work for invading Iran similar to the ILA. Many who supported Iraq often cited the ILA as justification to a certain degree. Will they do the same with IFSA?

    Are we so ridiculously ignorant as a Nation to sit by and let another catastrophic deception claim the lives of many innocent people? Have we learned anything from our occupations and indefensible invasions of iraq and afghanistan? There were many seeds planted by the Bush admin such as claiming Iran armed Iraqis fighting against our occupation, the naval incursions, and our favorite Fear Fudge, WMD. Let's not forget the "supporting terrorists" rhetoric. That one is especially entertaining considering our ally Saudi Arabia has always been at the forefront of supporting terrorism. Including target Israel.


    My view is we have not learned anything of real value over the past decade and after the next terrorist attack on US soil the majority of Americans will retreat to the 9E womb and gladly surrender more autonomy and Constitutional rights if it means obtaining an illusion of security. Attacking Iran is not a "possibility." It is going to happen. Will you support it or denounce it?

    Shit, this calls for a cost/benefit analysis....


    Cons: sinks us into yet another pointless land war in the ME, in a country which by all trends seems to be heading towards a democratic revolution...spends trillions of dollars...inflames radical muslims against us...would probably bankrupt the nation even further...a waste of life and material...

    Pros: Would piss off CurveLight...





    Too close to call.

    I will denounce it on the public transport but support it when I am drunk and ranting in parks.

    You are not allowed to drink on public transport in Australia!

    Sadly we have abandoned or great convict cultural heritage.

    All right, I will give a serious answer.

    I don’t think the US ever seriously contemplated a land invasion of Iran, ever. It is an entirely differently ball game than Iraq. They just did not remove the threat as a stick in the negotiations.

    What has been contemplated are air strikes against the nuclear facilities and possibly Republican Guard infrastructure, perhaps even naval facilities to prevent the Iranians from trying to block the Persian Gulf.

    I support air strikes against the nuclear facilities but think it is perhaps too late now, we have waited too long and they probably have diversified the nuclear program to the point where we can’t take the entire thing out.

    So now we are going to be stuck with an Iran that sooner or latter is going to have nuclear weapons.

    The Sunni Gulf states are going to be as terrified of this as Israel and they too will respond in kind.

    Great a nuclear arms race in the world’s most butt fucked region!

    That is my two cents.

    Go buy some bubble gum.
