U.S. Ready To Launch Attacks On Iran

According to the BBC, the U.S. has finalized plans to attack Iran. Truthdig is covering this story. See Here.

This has me sick. This gives you the ultimate feeling of helplessness, because there seems to be nothing that can be done to stop this madness. To hell with Iraq!!!! Iraq is already a disaster...probably a lost cause. It will go down in history as one of the biggest military and political blunders of all-time. What we should be focused on now is stopping an even bigger disaster from taking place. It's too late for Iraq.... but it's not too late when it comes to Iran.

But unfortunately the best response that the spineless Democrats can come up with is that Bush & Co. must come and "ask for Congressional approval" before attacking Iran. In other words, the Democrats are saying... we won't stop you, but we just need our ego stroked by having you ask for permission first, so that we feel like we matter. WHAT THE HELL? I have heard at least 3 major Democrats give this line over the past two weeks. GIVE ME A BREAK!!! Is this what all you voters asked for in the Mid-Term elections? This is one of the reasons why I don't participate in the farcical American political process. It doesn't seem to mean anything.

I was sincerely hoping that I would be wrong about Iran... and I still pray that it won't happen. but in reality, I have been right in predicting every major U.S. foreign policy & military situation since 1999 (since Yugoslavia), and I have been following international events closely for more than 15 years. I was writing (and warning) about the invasion of Iraq in 1999, during the Presidential race....4 years before the invasion actually took place and before Bush even took office. The prediction at the time was based on a hypothetical Bush victory in the 2000 Election.

But I will keep hoping that this colossal disaster can be prevented. I have to keep hoping. Because a war with Iran would make Iraq look like an episode of Sesame Street by comparison.

Hopefully grassroots pressure will have some sort of impact.... because the Democrats don't seem to be able to handle this situation. Unfortunately, the Bush crew doesn't traditionally respond to grassroots movements like protests, etc... they usually ignore such efforts (this is why i'm not a huge fan of protests and marches....they are often ineffective in dealing with the problems of the 21st Century).
