Bush planning war with Iran, including initiating nuclear war?
- Bush planning war with Iran, including initiating nuclear war?
Seymour Hersh reports in the New Yorker that, in fact, that is exactly
what is now happening.
The Arab Press, of course, immediately was completely covered
with that news, front page top, and I would not expect diminution.
It sounds scary any way you look at it, & it also looks like Bush & co.
have some major delusions like usual, i.e. their plans are apparently predicated on
the idea that once the US starts bombing,
the Iranians will all thankfully take the opportunity to rise up to get rid of their
government. Hersh's source put it thusly: "what are they smoking?"
However, Hersh's sources
noted, congress seems uninterested in putting up any opposition
to Bush on this, or indeed even in debating the subject at all,
which perhaps has something to do with 100% GOP control
made possible by the 2-party system forced by the USA's voting system -
or perhaps it has to do with the fact that Bush has only briefed a
few *selected* congresspeople, whose feedback was expected to be positive.
The price of the USA not having a good voting system could be very very high indeed.
