http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/asia/article2369001.ece Gee, I wonder how much AIPAC has to do with this... Democrats don't want the troops to come home any more then Republicans do. They all pander to the lobbyists, specifically AIPAC in this instance. The Dems actually allowed a piece in a recent legislation to be removed that would have required Bush to get congressional approval before taking any military action in Iran. Israel will strike Iran if the US doesn't, so the Israeli lobby is the only culprit here. Our government doesn't serve US, they serve Israel. I wish more people would realize that, that but shit, it's been 50, 60 years now...plenty of time to have noticed. Hmmm...watch American Bandstand, or take my issue with government to Washington....naahh, American Bandstand it is. Hmmmm, watch American Idol, or take my issues with government to Washington...naahh, American Idol it is. Same shit, different time periods. Result always the same: IGNORANT, APATHETIC SHEEP. Do you people realize what will happen if we attack Iran? With nukes, nonetheless? Do you people even understand geopolitics? Let's see...AT THE VERY LEAST, China will dump their TRILLION dollars (probably buying more military equipment), and it's goodbye excessive, lavish American lifestyle as we know it. That's the BEST CASE scenario. Worst case, China and Russia, who have mutual defense treaties with Iran, not to mention strong economic relations and dependancies, will just start the volley of ICBM's until the planet is left looking like something that resembles a smoldering Sun. All for what? Because you people believe Bush and Cheney that Iran is "aiding the insurgency"? They haven't even shown one shred of proof!! Even the fucking IAEA themselves say that Iran is nowehere NEAR weapons-grade capable in their nuclear energy enrichment program...which by the way, a sovereign nation has every right to pursue. But you go ahead and believe Bush and Cheney, and the rest of the war-mongering muderders that parrot their rhetoric. I hope you guys are ready for this. I hope you've made preparations for the worst...because it's going to get really bad, really fast.
