Oh, heck, drat and poodles: The Nation says it looks like we are sending stuff to Iran....From The Nation:
As reports circulate of a sharp debate within the White House over possible US military action against Iran and its nuclear enrichment facilities, The Nation has learned that the Bush Administration and the Pentagon have moved up the deployment of a major "strike group" of ships, including the nuclear aircraft carrier Eisenhower as well as a cruiser, destroyer, frigate, submarine escort and supply ship, to head for the Persian Gulf, just off Iran's western coast. This information follows a report in the current issue of Time magazine, both online and in print, that a group of ships capable of mining harbors has received orders to be ready to sail for the Persian Gulf by October 1.
Well, well and well.
Okay, click here and follow Time's take on this.
My take on this? Let's face it, the PNAC crowd has been itching to tackle Iran for a long time now, as part of their Machiavellian goal of The US As God Almighty Over Planet Earth. This is not surprising, considering that the PNAC war pigs have an erection with Iran's name on it.
Some defend this. I cannot. To me, it stinks the same way The Rape Of Poland stank, and where did that little annexation take us, history fans? Why, right into World War Two.
Our military is already overworked and overloaded. No big deal, the war pigs smirk, we're gonna use nukes, remember?
Many of the ships are nuke capable. Not long ago, the scenarios were played again and again, and with Dr. Strangelove-ish overtones. What will happen if the US and Iran decide to play out the Major Kong scene, pray tell?
Okay, then I'll say it: You think the US is hated now, darlin'? It may well come down to World War Three. I kid you not.
Cooler heads prevail, but not this time. This is a cheap mob-style regime hell-bent to show the entire world.....they are motherfucking insane.
Not crazy. Insane. Totally insane. The dreams of psychotic murderers, that kind of insane.
We toss nukes, it's over, boys and girls. Any respect we once had is purest vapor. Former allies will turn on us, trust me, and then?
Hitler assured the world in general; the annexation of The Sudetenland was it. Later, we learn, he lied through his teeth. He went for Poland. Gt. Britain went for war. So did all of Europe.
Are we that insane? We must be now. This, if it is true, is a stunt to shore up Rethug support, oh, dearest God, it will backfire so bad it's not even funny. Do these asses read the polls? Apparently not.
But those who are insane do not accept reality. They can't. To do so would make them look like their holy quest is less than promising, and we're talking about a regime, that, to date, has never pulled a punch to reshape this nation, nor Earth, in a dark and sickening vision born of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy.
Let's hope it's just sabre-rattling and nothing more, but then again, the crazy do the damnedest things. That's the scariest reality of them all.
