Iran - The Next War?

Iran: Here We Go Again, Mainstream Media and All
In case you hadn't noticed, we're being manipulated toward another war. The run-up to an attack on Iran is in full swing, and the justification for it is shifting as fast as the justification for invading Iraq did. And it appears that the media is being as compliant in echoing the Bush administration's message on Iran as it was in supporting their Iraq propaganda.
The only question at this point is, when will the full-on military confrontation begin, and whether it will be an American/Israeli joint strike.

And right now, don't expect congress to do anything more than they have done to bring our troops back from Iraq.

Brzezinski: Bush Seeking Pretext to Bomb Iran
Testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday, Zbigniew Brzezinski, the national security adviser in the Carter administration, delivered a scathing critique of the war in Iraq and warned that the Bush administration’s policy was leading inevitably to a war with Iran, with incalculable consequences for US imperialism in the Middle East and internationally.

Sen. Clinton: Iran is a threat to Israel
Will Chelsea be volunteering for this new war, Senator? And how can Iran be a threat to Israel when Israel has hundreds of nuclear warheads and delivery systems? And if you are all that worried about Israel, why did you run for the US Senate instead of the Knesset?
Chirac Strays From Assailing a Nuclear Iran

President Jacques Chirac said this week that if Iran had one or two nuclear weapons, it would not pose a big danger, and that if Iran were to launch a nuclear weapon against a country like Israel, it would lead to the immediate destruction of Tehran.
Finally someone with some rational thought. Israel has nuclear weapons, an estimated 400. They have admitted that. Israel is NOT a helpless victim-nation facing any kind of massive threat from a country like Iran who 1) has not invaded anyone in over 100 years and 2) is 7-10 years (depending on which experts you ask) away from enriching enough uranium to handle ONE bomb, let alone 400.

Lets say Iran built themselves a nuke and launched it against Israel. If it wasn't intercepted first (with all these missile defense systems and satellite technologies available) and destroyed a city, how is that going to benefit Iran? Israel would immediately launch a few dozen of their nukes which would cripple the country. The US would jump in and probably drop about 1000 out of the reported arsenal of over 9000 and the brits might contribute a few for the hell of it. The result of Iran firing off one nuke and maybe destroying a city would be the destruction of their entire country within days. Iran would be a green glass parking lot. It's instant suicide. It's a stupid thing to do. Even religious extremists aren't that retarded. So who is really threatening who?
Iran Clock Is Ticking
Another source with a pipeline into Israeli thinking said the Iran war plan has expanded over the past several weeks. Earlier thinking had been that Israeli warplanes would hit Iranian nuclear targets with U.S. forces in reserve in case of Iranian retaliation, but now the strategy anticipates a major U.S. military follow-up to an Israeli attack, the source said.
Okay folks, we are not kidding here. Israel is about to start WW3 with the hot and eager help of our government and stick us all with the aftermath! Are we just going to sit there like sheep waiting for the broiler?
