The dems are convinced that our President's closest advisor, Mr. Rove, has an "October Surprise" up his sleeve. Some lefty Dems are convinced it's an invasion of Iran, which, by the way, is LONG overdue. However, I think we should invade Socialist, terrorist-loving CANADA. They also have lots of oil, by the way. And my other question for the America-bashers there, why do so many of you people come to American to get rich? Because the Socialist pinkos in your Workers Paradise won't let yet you? Or do you people come here to learn English?

They should be worried. It's a play right outta the Clinton handbook and it works. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that grabbing the medias' attention right before the elections is a powerful (even if evil) tool.

This troll must have insider info, of course wouldn't be a giant leap for DNC, they've said the same for the past 3 election cycles:

The October Surprise (134 comments )


It should come as no surprise if the Bush Administration undertakes a preemptive war against Iran sometime before the November election.

Were these more normal times, this would be a stunning possibility, quickly dismissed by thoughtful people as dangerous, unprovoked, and out of keeping with our national character. But we do not live in normal times.
And we do not have a government much concerned with our national character. If anything, our current Administration is out to remake our national character into something it has never been.

The steps will be these: Air Force tankers will be deployed to fuel B-2 bombers, Navy cruise missile ships will be positioned at strategic points in the northern Indian Ocean and perhaps the Persian Gulf, unmanned drones will collect target data, and commando teams will refine those data. The latter two steps are already being taken. So he's saying that if the Dems were in power, they wouldn't be collecting target data, with others to analyze the data? That would be stupid. :shocked:

Then the president will speak on national television. He will say this:
Iran is determined to develop nuclear weapons; if this happens, the entire region will go nuclear; our diplomatic efforts to prevent this have failed; Iran is offering a haven to known al Qaeda leaders; the fate of our ally Israel is at stake; Iran persists in supporting terrorism, including in Iraq; and sanctions will have no affect (and besides they are for sissies).​
He will not say: ...and besides, we need the oil. Truly amazing, Hart channeling the living Bush. Oh and 'it's all about oil.' :smoke:

Therefore, he will announce, our own national security and the security of the region requires us to act.
"Tonight, I have ordered the elimination of all facilities in Iran that are dedicated to the production of weapons of mass destruction....."​
In the narrowest terms this includes perhaps two dozen targets.

But the authors of the war on Iraq have "regime change" in mind in Iran. According to Colonel Sam Gardiner (author of "The End of the 'Summer of Diplomacy': Assessing U.S. Military Options in Iran," The Century Foundation, 2006) to have any hope of success, such a policy would require attacking at least 400 targets, including the Revolutionary Guard. But even this presumes the Iranian people will respond to a massive U.S. attack on their country by overthrowing their government. Only an Administration inspired by pre-Enlightenment fantasy could believe a notion such as this. So if and when he does something, he would be wrong... Got it. ;)

Embracing this reverie requires believing in the Iranian Ahmed Chalabi, or perhaps even Mr. Chalabi himself since he has been working both sides of the street in both countries for some time. :laugh: Bring out the old punching clowns. Where's that list of logical fallacies?

It does not involve much imagination to understand the timing. The U.S. is poised to adopt a Congressional regime change of its own in November. A political strategy totally based on fear can offer few other options to prevent this. Besides, occupation by Democrats of even one house of Congress in January would make this scheme more difficult (one would certainly hope).

Further, time for super-power military conquest may be running short in the emerging age of fourth generation warfare. "...the age of Western military ascendancy is coming to an end." ("No Win," Andrew Bacevich, The Boston Globe, August 27, 2006). Now there is a credible source. :rolleyes:

The consequences? The sunny neoconservatives whose goal has been to become the neo-imperial Middle Eastern power all along will forcast few. But prudent leaders calculate all the risks, and they are historic.

These include: violent reaction throughout the Islamic world; a dramatic increase in jihadist attacks in European capitals and the U.S.; radicalization of Islamic youth behind a new generation of jihadist leaders; consolidation of support for Hamas, Hezbollah, al Qaeda, and a rapidly spreading malignant network; escalating expansion of anti-American sentiment throughout the world, including the democratic world; and the formation of WWIII battle lines between the U.S. and the Arab and Islamic worlds.

In more rational times, including at the height of the Cold War, bizarre actions such as unilateral, unprovoked, preventive war are dismissed by thoughtful, seasoned, experienced men and women as mad. But those qualities do not characterize our current leadership.

For a divinely guided president who imagines himself to be a latter day Winston Churchill (albeit lacking the ability to formulate intelligent sentences), and who professedly does not care about public opinion at home or abroad, anything is possible, and dwindling days in power may be seen as making the most apocalyptic actions necessary.
I am truly amazed at the hubris of this one time presidential candidate, whoops 'unsuccessful' because he couldn't stop himself from taunting the press, one of whom he's now looking for as an 'expert.'
