I saw that on the NBC evening news and what struck me was that it was said that after WMD, the military is highly suspicious of such unverified claims.

Personally if Bush/Cheney said the sky was blue and the sun yellow, I would look outside to make sure myself. They have absolutely no credibility, especially in the wars they want.

Grover,
Well I got say I agree with you on the sky being blue and the sun being yellow

However hopefully this big mess will all still come to an end. I know it seems like a pipe dream but still got to hope.

I still can't shake the feeling that if shrub minor were to order an attack that would result in a full scale war with Iran, our military leaders would show some backbone and say no WILL do sir!

Mark my word that overblown weed will provoke a constituitional crisis before his tenure is over and probably before this year is out.

Grover,
The senior military leaders are in part political positions, that being said I dint think they will say no will do to the commander and chief. I however don't want to suggest they are not professionals also.
As to the constitutional crisis could you explain what you mean by a constitutional crisis?

Well number one the military leaders know the extent of what they can do and already know we are stretched too thin for any further adventures and no military man will willingly waste materials and lives on a losing proposition especially when to do so would weaken us and hinder our ability to protect ourselves.

By a constituitional crisis something like congress refusing to authorize an attack on Iran and Bush going ahead and doing it anyway or bush manouvering to omit the congress from any decision making in this matter completly...in other words a power grab.

Grover,
the president does have the authority to use the military with out approval of the state representatives as I remember it. What the congress can do is enact the War Powers Act. That will force him to with draw from what ever war he happens to be in. If that happens I would not really see it as a power grab, but I do think it would a crises of constitutional authority for the history books.

Well back during the Vietman war Congress stopped funding for it... if they did that now and bush minor continued to fund it using say earmarked funds, that would also provoke a crisis.

Yes that is about what happened with vietnam, but that was also before the War Powers Act.
The war powers Act has not been used yet, so it will make a bench mark if it should happen.
