I see lots of people have viewed this thread but no comments..

I guess it's getting hard to deny now. Carrier strike groups in the gulf have doubled, troops being freed up in Afghanistan, more troops being freed up in Iraq as their army comes on-line, extra troops and support on the way. Air assets have been moved to Qatar from Diego Garcia and Patriot missile batteries are being installed in possible target areas.

This will be America's biggest shame.

At this point President Bush knows how unpopular he is, and what unpopular wars he has started. The downside, short of impeachment which the American Congress lacks the spine to propose and pass, there is no way to stop this eventuality.

We are going to start another war, which indirectly is spawned because of the lies told to get us into Iraq in the first place.

Why aren't we going to N. Korea? For a while there Kim Jong Il was talking to anyone who would listen, saying that he is going to harm the U.S. and it's interests.

I know why... N.Korea will call up their buddies in China, and have them cripple our economy by dumping the American Dollar investments it has. The chinese economy has been intertwined with ours so much we absolutely depend on them for production of goods. If they were to alter what trade we do have with them it could cause a world wide depression like the old days. If China wanted to, they could put the world into an economic Ice Age again.

We have enough Oil, trust me. The Government just wants to control it, so they can reap the rewards. What we don't have enough of is homegrown manufacturing of absolutely everything else, like microchips, and universally used goods like tools.

You sick sick person

Join the Army and see it for real maybe you won't find the images you see on TV as "COOL" anymore!

An attack on Iran certainly looks more and more likely as the days go by, this time though it looks as if the US is going to do it unilateraly. I don't envisage even Britain wanting to get get involved in the attack!

I would join the army if I could, I would have no problem picking up a gun.

My grandfather was at ohmaha beach normandy in ww2, My dad was in veitnam, my other grandfather was in korea.

I was gonna joing the marines when I graduated but I have a seizure disorder and they wouldnt take me.

I have no pitty for the middle east, as far as I'm concerned give them thier holey war.

This escalation in the "war on terror" should come as no suprise to anyone. It was the Bush Administration's plan to go to war with Iran eventually. I wonder how they will sell this war on the news networks. What excuses and made up evidence they will present, or maybe another false flag operation is in the works. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Congress is not going to authorize an invasion or attack on iran at this point. THe military has plans for what to do if there is an invasion, that is not the same as 'they are planning to invade', it'd be irresponsible of them to not have a list of targets inside iran.

There is nothing cool about bombs flying and people dying.... if you think there is you have played way too many video games and have no connection with reality.

Nygdan I agree with you on this one BUT bush minor is going to provoke a constituitional crisis before his term is out and probably before this year, and it is probably going to be over Iran. The one good thing is that the media (excepting faux news) isn't going along with the snow job this time. Case in point I have heard several times on the evening news lately how the Shiite forces are standing down and not attacking US forces (or Sunni) like they were preferring to play a waiting game and then there is the Joint Chief of Staff coming out and flat contridicting the administration on the IED issue.

This administration..
I have trouble expressing what comes to my mind,
They are simply far-out, extreme, radical.
They appear dead-bent on conflict with Iran.
But I'm having a reeeaaal hard time figuring what
will allow them to achieve this goal.

It won't fly in congress, unless Iran starts it,
and I don't believe Iran is really that irrational.

we wait
watch everything unfold

Whose to say if congress will allow it or not? Seems the other day that the Democratic attempt to restrict the troop surge was shot down in the Senate. Who'se to say a Democratic attempt to prevent war with Iran won't get shot down? Bush is the commander in chief of the military, after all. However, i'm not familiar with how many Republicans really want war with Iran, and it probably would not be allowed in Congress.

I'd like to echo grover's reply to wantsome. Brings to mind two different
scenes from two different movies. In the first, "Powder", a hunter kills a
deer and gets to experience the dying of the deer through the deer itself.
Turns out to be something quite terrifying for him.
In the second movie, "Star Man", an innocent alien brings a dead deer
back to life, after it had been left for dead on the hood of a hunter's car.

I remember feeling good about the second scene. Alright !
The first scene though, I remember feeling uneasy and too involved.

War is not something to be wished for. The uneasiness is haunting.

This only confirms what so many of us here on ATS believe!!! This war is coming, but how will the US control it?? I just fear that once the "cat is out of the bag" things are going to get really ugly for the entire planet! How low will this government stoop to really get this war started? Will it be another false-flage event? Or do we just start bombing them in the name of "self-defense"?
