Well, it is unclear to me whether;
A - The administration (corporate-fueled ideologues) are intending to carry out an action which could spark a 'declaration of war', or
B - They are making absolutely certain that the notion of 'impending war' remains fixed in the publics mind, as well as the Iranian leadership.
There is no doubt that we are on a 'war' footing. We are staging military assets accordingly. We have, once again, rejected international (UN)
assurances of the nature of Iran's nuclear energy initiatives. I am reticent to state that we should, because as far as I know, nuclear fissionables
could be a result of their programs. However, we have 'ignored' UN assurances before, and found our reasoning in retrospect, to be
As a nation with a faltering industrial base, war is the most draining activity in which we could engage. It affects our economic situation in a
manner not unlike a a three foot hole in a canoe.
Our leadership is so isolated and focused on the projection of military power in the ME that it has de-prioritized national infrastructure and the
resources of the people. They appear to be in a 'mad' dash to accomplish something, but what that is remains unclear.
I fear most the CIA black-ops that have cost us so much blood in the past. It's almost as if the costs are negligible , as they won't be the one's
paying for it.
In what manner can the reasoning so easily disregard the national will? Ideology has led us this far. The 'New World Order' foreseen by Bush Sr.
must have some bearing on these otherwise incongruous activities. Or is it just the Energy Industries last frantic reach for more assets and control,
at the cost of the Nation's defense and resources?
Are we to form yet another 'coalition' of the willing to take on this very large nation and it's collective will? What, aside from the bravado and
chest pounding, will be accomplished by this? More 'patriotic' furor with which to justify the imposition of more draconian civil restrictions?
Will we truly be 'safer'? Or is this about the much touted Israeli influence within our government?
Who are the architects of this plan, the neocons, the Energy lobby, the Israeli government? We know it is not the congress that is pushing this, nor
the senate; although their tacit cooperation denotes approval. It isn't coming from the UN, although their true motivations tend towards the
financial. The Arab world is oddly subdued over the rising tension and seemingly impending conflict.
So many questions. Theoretically, in a representative constitutional republic, with a free press standing guard, and a well educated and informed
population, should there be this much doubt and so many questions unanswered?
Be vigilant, examine all information sources, talk to one another, engage our leaders, make them answer.
