If the Bushists wanted to sell a war with Iran would it look something like this?
BBC NEWS | Middle East | Iran 'behind Green Zone attack'
The most senior US general in Iraq has said he has evidence that Iran was behind Sunday's bombardment of Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone.
While the campaign isn't particularly successful it increasingly looks like Bush doesn't care.
What really got my attention was this:
Chris Floyd Online - Still Not Worried? Petraeus Blames Iran for Green Zone Attack
I. One Tick Closer to Midnight
Last Friday, Dick Cheney was in Saudi Arabia for high-level meetings with the Saudi king and his ministers. On Saturday, it was revealed that the Saudi Shura Council -- the elite group that implements the decisions of the autocratic inner circle -- is preparing "national plans to deal with any sudden nuclear and radioactive hazards that may affect the kingdom following experts' warnings of possible attacks on Iran's Bushehr nuclear reactors," one of the kingdom's leading newspapers, Okaz, reports. The German-based dpa news service relayed the paper's story.
Then there was the resignation of Adm. Fallon which prompted USnews to compile a list of 6 Signs the U.S. May Be Headed for War in Iran - News Desk (usnews.com)
Finally there is this:
M of A - Unilateral Sanctions Against Iran
Washington has called on international financial institutions to steer clear of doing business with Iran's central bank, in the US's most wide-ranging attempt yet to isolate Tehran financially.
In this context I want to ask a question: What do you think will happen in Europe if/when the war begins?
While according to a BBC poll basically no one favors an US attack on Iran a lot of passion is needed to put a dent into the Atlanticism that still dominates our elites thinking. And I have heard too many people comparing Ahmadinejad to Hitler to be confident that this crime will be seen as the abomination it is.
I fear that not only are we powerless to stop this crime against humanity, but in the end millions will be dead and nothing will change.
