Cheney pushes Bush to act on Iran

The whole thing hinges on what exactly Cheney considers “action”. The fine folks who run this country haven’t taken anything off the table yet for dealing with Iran. Including military strikes.

Are we going to invade a third Middle Eastern country on Bush’s watch? The first two worked out just swimmingly. Why not go for the hat trick?

The balance in the internal White House debate over Iran has shifted back in favour of military action before President George Bush leaves office in 18 months, the Guardian has learned.
The shift follows an internal review involving the White House, the Pentagon and the state department over the last month. Although the Bush administration is in deep trouble over Iraq, it remains focused on Iran. A well-placed source in Washington said: “Bush is not going to leave office with Iran still in limbo.”

  1. Big J,

    Cheney and his Fondle Donkey Puppet (aka George) have 1/2 … one fucking half of US warships around Iran.

    They also have hugely upped the US Air Force capability in bases in Iraq.

    Cheney & his Puppet are gonna do it. They’re gonna bomb Iran.

    We all have to think about what we are going to do after he bombs them. Are we going to march on Washington, are we gonna write letters, or simply reach for another beer? I don’t know, but it’s better I think to think about what, as a citizen, you’re gonna do.
