Over the weekend the good folks at Hammer of Truth posted a couple of entries on the run up to the next Middle Eastern conflict. Apparently Ron Paul has written on the subject and now it becomes something to be talked about. Well, at least they're talking about it, now. Even the Libertarian Party got in on the act late last week. Better late than never, I guess.
Of course now that the Powers That Be have evoked the nuclear spectre, people are sitting up and starting to pay attention. Even if the Bush administration eschews the use of nuclear weapons in the coming conflict, they are still seriously considering a conventional war. Now, I've spoken to this before, once or twice and will likely do so many more times and I really hope that folks will catch on to the lies and actually start putting the pieces of the puzzle together, (despite the convoluted lies from Mr. Bush and his spokespeople), before we are embroiled in yet another Bush War.
Of course with the multitude of Immigration Rally's going on and the resulting foofaraw that will inevitably result from that carefully managed issue, Iran will drop off of the radar again. I guess that's one of the perils of living in a country where the majority of people seem to suffer from ADD and selective blindness, especially where government and its actions are concerned.
The Bush administration says they are engaging in "diplomacy". That seems odd, given that the US has so far refused to engage in any talks on the issue and even the US Ambassador to Iraq isn't talking about Iran/Iraq issues...and no-one has been engaging in the "diplomacy" aspect of the Iran nuclear issue, except Europe. Are we expected to believe this blatant lie? My guess is that the faithful will certainly believe it, as will those too fearful to contemplate the truth of the matter. In the end people will be really upset, but will be unable to pull themselves away from the TV set when the bombs start falling in Tehran and all too few will even think back to this time, when they should have been telling their so-called "Representatives" that they had damned well better not support another war.
It's an election year, folks....now is as good a time as any to hold their feet to the fire.
