War with Iran

posted by The Vidiot @ 7:31 AM Permalink

The more I think of it, the worse I realize it is.

The same rhetoric this administration used against Iraq is being used against Iran. The Same. Exact. Rhetoric.
Exerpt: "I think the administration, the president and the vice president particularly, are trying to hype the atmosphere, and that is reminiscent of what preceded the war in Iraq," Brzezinski told CNN's "Late Edition" on Sunday.
It’s scary. They are clearly insane since going to war with Iran is NOT the same as Iraq. For one thing, Iran has friends. Very powerful friends like China and Russia. I mean, that’s how WWI got started. Somebody attacked somebody who had friends and those friends felt obligated to get into the fight. If the US goes to war with Iran, the US will also then be at war with Russia and China. Russia has the nukes and China has the army. It could get very ugly VERY fast.

This sort of stuff keeps me up at night.

Iran also has lots of missiles that can hit anywhere in the Middle East and most of Europe. The instant our first bomb or missile hits Iran they won't hesitate to use them, and I don't care how well Cheney and the Pentagon think the plan they have is - these are the architects of the Iraq War.

And Iran's missiles are mostly mobile, so when the satellites tell you where the missiles are today it means nothing the next day when their positions have changed.

There are just too many variables for our bush/cheney run military to plan for, and you know I have long feared that the Chinese and Russians would attack us if we attack Iran. They have promised to stop American hegemony and I believe they WILL.

Have you ever noticed that every single leader, whether peaceful or otherwise, who has said -- or even just hinted -- that they won't succumb to US hegemony is on the Bush hit list?

I wonder why that is... <\rhetorical questions>

I think the idea of calling the president of iran a terrorist is just absurd !in the last 2 years this guy did not try to invade any country whatsoever ! it is disgrace to hear people comparing him with Hitler (whom was the face of shame of this planet) I hate the fact that Ahmadinejad has so much anger against the nation of Israel ! I would definitly hate him if he tried anything against the nation of God (Israel) ! But so far he did not make any attempt to and hope he will never try to do something so stupid if he is indeed so educated ! and i think he owes the nation of israel an apology ! but he has all the right not to help in any ways when it comes to the war on Iraq . He had nothing to do with the US invading Iraq , man should know they need to accept to live with the consequences of their own actions ! not blaming it on somebody else ! the best thing to do right now when it comes to the war is to try to get the troops out of Iraq ! These innocent young men and women should only be fighting fot their country ! not for a government ! they should only die for their country but not for the stupid mistake of a government ! GPER

Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, Sudan and all the others bush plans to attack also just happen to have OIL.

funny that in that article it says Iran's president to be POLITICALY whiped off the map, first of all he didnt even say whiped off the map, he said that the regime in israel should be whiped out and replaced and forgotten. Not to mention usa at war with iran would result in a slaughter in iraq, regardless, strategic bombing runs will have casualties on america's side as iran still has a significant amount of fighter aircraft and mobile scuds would rain over israel and iraq and eastern europe. War with the most dominant force in the middle east is not too smart, they could take out our bases in qatar, bahrain and uae with scuds alone, not to mention patriots have only a 25% hit rate on them, 100 % hit only if targetted and fired upon by 4 or more patriot positions

Actually, Ahmadinejad said that Israel should "vanish from the pages of time" and never voiced an existential treat to Israel at any time.
