In an almost stunning repeat of the prelude to the Iraqi war, the Bush administration has refused to negotiate with Iran about it's nuclear power plants. I guess diplomacy only works if you plan to use it, and I'm sure before the bombs start falling and more troops start dying, Bush will claim that the war in Iran was a last resort. And I'm sure that all those brain damaged beer swilling chemically imbalanced Faux News watching hypocrites will support this one too, because even after being told for so many years by Conservatives about how good nuclear energy is, now all of a sudden, it's a bad thing. And that's all they're doing, building a nuclear power plant (see photo below)
Iran he decided to use nuclear power, because it will allow them to sell their oil reserves and make some money. The problem is two fold. It's planning on selling them in euros, and they have a contract to sell it to China, which has $1 Trillion in reserve. So when they pay for the oil they intend on purchasing from Iran, they'll have to convert those dollars into euros. Eventually, those dollars will come back here like so many bad checks, with nothing to back them up, since America manufactures very little anymore. (But we still consume so much).
Meanwhile, the Russians have offered to enrich Iran's uranium in their country, but Bush is a war president, everything he does with war on his mind. It doesn't matter to him, or to anyone in Congress, that we're about to start WWIII, as none of their family members are serving in the military. But this time, we won't be fighting the bad guys, the US will be the bad guys. We're not fighting to bring democracy anywhere, we're fighting to control the world's resources.
And hey, what about that war on terror anyway? On Monday, an alQeada expert said that Osama is probably dead(which of course, he is)and that lead the US to fire back "No he isn't!", which is just another excuse for the government to round people up just because they're Muslims.
None of these wars have anything to do with 9/11, no matter how many times Bush invokes that fateful date to justify everything from torturing people just because their Muslims, to spying on American anti-war activists, to invading sovereign nations. Only a jackanape can support this war (and a brain damaged beer swilling chemically imbalanced jackanape at that), brainwashed into thinking anything the US does is justified by our military might, making our troops act as mere thugs and bullies for the New World Order. Diplomacy is for pussies.
