Iran: The Next Neocon Target

It’s been three years since the U.S. launched its war against Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction. Of course now almost everybody knows there were no WMDs, and Saddam Hussein posed no threat to the United States. Though some of our soldiers serving in Iraq still believe they are there because Saddam Hussein was involved in 9/11, even the administration now acknowledges there was no connection. Indeed, no one can be absolutely certain why we invaded Iraq. The current excuse, also given for staying in Iraq, is to make it a democratic state, friendly to the United States. There are now fewer denials that securing oil supplies played a significant role in our decision to go into Iraq and stay there. That certainly would explain why U.S. taxpayers are paying such a price to build and maintain numerous huge, permanent military bases in Iraq. They’re also funding a new billion dollar embassy- the largest in the world.

The significant question we must ask ourselves is: What have we learned from three years in Iraq? With plans now being laid for regime change in Iran, it appears we have learned absolutely nothing. There still are plenty of administration officials who daily paint a rosy picture of the Iraq we have created. But I wonder: If the past three years were nothing more than a bad dream, and our nation suddenly awakened, how many would, for national security reasons, urge the same invasion? Would we instead give a gigantic sigh of relief that it was only a bad dream, that we need not relive the three-year nightmare of death, destruction, chaos and stupendous consumption of tax dollars. Conceivably we would still see oil prices under $30 a barrel, and most importantly, 20,000 severe U.S. causalities would not have occurred. My guess is that 99% of all Americans would be thankful it was only a bad dream, and would never support the invasion knowing what we know today.

Even with the horrible results of the past three years, Congress is abuzz with plans to change the Iranian government. There is little resistance to the rising clamor for “democratizing” Iran, even though their current president, Mahmoud Almadinejad, is an elected leader. Though Iran is hardly a perfect democracy, its system is far superior to most of our Arab allies about which we never complain. Already the coordinating propaganda has galvanized the American people against Iran for the supposed threat it poses to us with weapons of mass destruction that are no more present than those Saddam Hussein was alleged to have had. It’s amazing how soon after being thoroughly discredited over the charges levied against Saddam Hussein the Neo-cons are willing to use the same arguments against Iran. It’s frightening to see how easily Congress, the media, and the people accept many of the same arguments against Iran that were used to justify an invasion of Iraq

How long have Gayle,and I,and others been posting exactly what was said. And how long has the Right wing of the Country been blind sided with a love of an agenda that is destroying any chance of a life,for future generations. Stay the course,at what cost. Even as I write,I know Rumsfeld is about to exit, so the Country can have a Goat to chase into the desert,and GWB will be shaking his fist,and singing his praise. The important question is,what have we become.

[The important question is, what have we become.]

No truer words were ever spoken! This is exactly why I think it is so important for our country to impeach George Bush, and Cheney. We NEED to make a statement to the world, that we are not the country that he and his neocon muscle men have turned us into, and that we DO value and hold dear the principles of a peaceful nation, which is strong, but determined to exhaust diplomacy, and a calm resolve to communicate and negotiate our way toward peaceful resolutions for the problems of the world, instead of going off half cocked, with hidden agenda's and lies.

The Neocon movement MUST be stopped. As in the Nixon days, there is a cancer growing on the presidency, but this time it has infected all branches of our government, our Constitution, and our reputation in the world, and it all started with the illegal, immoral, fraudulent election results of the Architect, Karl Rove, who belongs in jail along with the rest of them.

The really awful part of all this is that our elections are no safer from corruption than they have been for the last two illegal ones. We Must go back to written votes, and maintain a paper trail. This is something which has been totally neglected, and must be changed.
