I feel like the robot in LOST IN SPACE, that flailed his limbs about and shouted, “DANGER DANGER.” The reason is that I have been reading about aggressive rumblings from the Bush Administration. There are several articles recently proclaiming that Bush, emulating Julius Caesar, is preparing for another war. Just an hour ago I read the following:
“Seymour Hersh, writing in the latest New Yorker magazine, reports that American soldiers have been conducting secret reconnaissance missions inside Iran. The missions have been underway for several months, in preparation for potential U.S. military strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities.”
“Hersh says that the operations have been authorized by the president with little or no congressional oversight.”
We know that the neo-conservative agenda is to rule the world and seize the major oil reserves. That is fact, NOT fantasy.
We know that Bush when he lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq also inclded Iran in his war plans. He has come back to that strategy. You can fully expect the following to occur: Bush will declare some imminent danger to the U.S.. Iran has “intentions” to do something very bad to us, and he will have to take preemptive action to save us from this terrible danger.
Bush will again talk to God, who will assure him that Muslims are infidels, and that a crusade is needed. Bush, or Condi, or Rumsfeld will find that some Iranian leader is ‘EVIL”, with dastardly plans for humanity and needs application of cruise missles, tanks, bombs, grenades and about 200,000 American troops. Bush has already made Congress and extension of the oval office, and is able through his corporate friends and sycophants to override any criticism. In fact, the idea that criticism is treason will again be broached. Citizens will be arrested without warrant, phones tapped, homes search, and held incommunicado simply because Bush feels that he now has a mandate to do anything he damn well pleases. ANYTHING. Constitution be damned or changed at will.
You can expect his preacher friends to begin grooming him for sainthood with daily praises. YOu can fully expect him to change this democracy into a fascist theocracy.
