America and Iran: At the Brink of the Abyss

Attacking Iran with nuclear weapons, no matter how small, is evil.. Once the American public becomes fully aware that military action will include nuclear weapons, public support will quickly disappear. A great catastrophe will have been averted.

"Once the American public becomes fully aware that military action will include nuclear weapons, public support will quickly disappear."

Unfortunately, sorrowfully, you are wrong. The US you think still exists is gone. Because the majority of 2006 Amerikans will slink down whatever moral rathole Bush decides to pursue. Thats' already been proven.

Yes, I genuinely fear that Bush will in fact attack Iran with nukes before he leaves office. And the Amerikan public will pliantly go along. No problem there.

We are a nation of killers and fanatics.

And we are finally, utterly lost.

Gone.

The sad part is that it has more to do with Iran switching from dollars to euros for trading their oil, than any perceived threat of Iran's nuclear capacity.

OPEC is also moving to switch much to the chagrin of the Neo-cons. All those George Washington's dumped back on the US economy will be very detrimental to all those happy consumers.

A flailing and thrashing empire in decline is very dangerous.

of nukes,

small tactical nukes--that is, will not be revealed or verifiable independently, because they perform much the same as the huge conventional bombs.

Afterwards, there will a radio-active footprint but the media will bury any such reports from the few brave souls who dare to investigate.

And, all the while, the funny-mentals will be praying in their churches, the narcissists will be busying themselves with more consumption and intoxicants, and the sorry remainder will be just trying to avoid a life on the streets or in jail.

Rock on, amerika.
