The Last Throes

Just because the world doesn't hate us enough...
A recent decision by German officials to withhold support for any new sanctions against Iran has pushed a broad spectrum of officials in Washington to develop potential scenarios for a military attack on the Islamic regime, FOX News confirmed Tuesday.


Consequently, according to a well-placed Bush administration source, "everyone in town" is now participating in a broad discussion about the costs and benefits of military action against Iran, with the likely timeframe for any such course of action being over the next eight to 10 months, after the presidential primaries have probably been decided, but well before the November 2008 elections.
All this because, according to one foreign diplomat, "'...[t]here are a number of people in the administration who do not want their legacy to be leaving behind an Iran that is nuclear armed, so they are looking at what are the alternatives? They are looking at other options,' the diplomat said."

So for all those who have been saying that all we have to do is just wait out the next year and a half until the Bushies leave town, their going-away present could be a nuclear war with a country that's led by a crazy man.

Crooks and Liars has put out an action alert if you're motivated to let Congress know that the last thing we need is to further inflame the Islamic world -- if that's possible -- and give in to every neocon's wet dream of going out in a blaze of glory.
