The war next door?

Wow, who wrote that dissertation here yesterday? down with wordiness, which is tantamount to truthiness, in other words bad news. A pithy corrective tonight: did you happen to catch the President's speech today? One paragraph in particular might set off alarm bells in some quarters. To wit, "Some of the most powerful IEDs we're seeing in Iraq today includes components that came from Iran. Our Director of National Intelligence, John Negroponte, told the Congress, "Tehran has been responsible for at least some of the increasing lethality of anti-coalition attacks by providing Shia militia with the capability to build improvised explosive devises" in Iraq. Coalition forces have seized IEDs and components that were clearly produced in Iran. Such actions -- along with Iran's support for terrorism and its pursuit of nuclear weapons -- are increasingly isolating Iran, and America will continue to rally the world to confront these threats." (Applause.)

If anyone hears the faint sound of war drums out there, i hope he or she will write the congressperson and demand a slightly higher standard of proof that Iran is directly involved in the killing of our troops in Iraq than he/she did when confronted with allegations of WMD. All we need is a rubber stamp for another war in the Persian gulf.

I've long agreed with Jon Stewart's assessment on the Daily Show ages ago. The neo-cons & Geo really wanted to go after Iran, but somebody made a typo and nobody figured it out until we'd started bombing.

It used to be a joke. Considering the way our knuckleheads in the administration work, I'm beginning to think it's what really happened.

LOL I'm thinking you and Jon Stewart are correct on this one.
