Bush lies about his plans for war with Iran
From the Chicago Tribune: " The president maintained today, during his brief talk with reporters in the Oval Office following his meeting with military leaders, that his resolve to attack Iranian-backed forces supporting insurgents or sectarian violence inside Iraq will not lead to any direct confontation with Iran.

"Now, some are trying to say that because we're enforcing -- helping ourselves in Iraq by stopping outside influence from killing our soldiers or hurting Iraqi people -- that we want to expand this beyond the borders,'' Bush said. "That's a presumption that simply is not accurate. We believe that we can solve our problems with Iran diplomatically, and are working to do that. As a matter of fact, we're making pretty good progress on that front.''"

Dig that, and he doesn't even have diplomatic relations with Iran! No ambassador, no Dress Marine, no limo, no nothin'! He does have some aircraft carrier battle groups in the area, though...

Power to the people who are massing in Washington DC today.

Bush deliberately destroyed all that remained of Iraq's infrastructure and culture, dissolved all of the non-sectarian Arab glue that held the society together, is attempting to turn the country's governance over to pro-Iran Shi'i sectarian "democratic leaders", and finally at long last it dawns on him that Iran may be causing trouble by encouraging the sectarian civil war raging in Iraq. So, as a remedy for the Shi'ite hell Bush himself brought to Iraq he proposes to kill or capture Iranian agents in the country. Who is he going to start with, Moqtada al Sadr, or his puppet, Prime Minister al Maliki? Regarding Ayatollah al Hakim or Grand Ayatollah Sistani, which will it be, killed or captured? Inquiring minds want to know.

Where is Ahmed Chalabi these days, anyway? Back in Tehran, or London? I'd like to hear what he'd have to say if Bush put him behind bars. Would Cheney's promotion of Chalabi's Iran-generated propaganda make the Vice President an Iranian agent, too.
