October Surprise?

President Bush went to the UN today to press for the case for war, er, I mean sanctions against Iran for it's nuclear program. Sanctions are highly unlikely as Russia, China, and now, even France oppose them. Look for french fries to become freedom fries again in the not-too-distant future. The UN will once become irrelevant and Bush will push ahead with the PNAC plan to rebuild the middle east.
Bush needs all this to hapen before October, so he can use the flag waving American propaganda machine the keep his rubberstamp Congress and hoping that the television-watchers will give it to him. Then, he can relax, as he knows once he keeps his congress, he can persuade them to protect his ass from any danger of impeachment for any number of crimes he has committed, and possibly save him from being tried as the war criminal he is.
Before that can happen, he needs a terrorist attack, and what do you know, he gets one. Or at least the threat of one. That's all it takes for the television-watchers' paranoia to kick in and he can violate any law there is, as long as he justifies it by using national security and invoking 9/11, although that last one is just about used up.
Bush' speech will draw distinctions between countries that want peace, such as most of the countries in the region, and those extremists who want to spread terror and violence, such as the US and Israel.
"The world must stand up for peace."

They do, Mr. President. That's why they won't stand for you.

I read something someplace that the recent embassy attack was not Muslim terrorists, but Americans. When I first heard of the attack, I thought - I'll bet it's a frame up. This is getting wilder by the minute.

I was most struck by Bush's commenting that peace could not be "imposed" but had to be "chosen". One wonders if he even understands the implications on what he utters?

"Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor."

Chapter 5, "Creating Tomorrow's Dominent Force", from Project for a New American Century's position paper "Rebuilding America's Defenses."

So it didn't quite work on 9/11/01, they'll try it again on a larger scale.

we are caught in the middle of two sides of extremism

The next time he describes the desires of the terrorist, listen to how much they sounds like his own.

He is a disgrace to our country. Will he attack Iran? He will if he wants to and that should scare the pants off of everyone in this country and all others as well.

Kvatch, I don't think he understands that he should care about what he says.
