U.S. Prepares Massive Air Attack on Iran
US Navy aircraft carrier strike forces are deployed off Iran. US Air Force jets and missile systems are deployed in bases near Iran. US B-2 stealth bombers have been refitted to carry 30,000 pound "bunker buster" bombs. The US government is financing separatist groups within Iran. US Special Forces teams are conducting operations inside Iran. US war doctrine has been altered to permit first strike nuclear attack on Iran and other non-nuclear countries.
Lacking US troops with which to invade Iran, the Bush administration has decided to bomb Iran back into the stone age. Punishing air and missile attacks have been designed not merely to destroy Iran's nuclear energy projects, but also to destroy the public infrastructure, the economy, and the ability of the government to function.
The Bush administration has made its war plans for attacking Iraq and positioned its forces without any prior approval from Congress. The "unitary executive" obviously doesn't believe that an attack on Iran requires the approval of Congress. By its absence and quietude, Congress seems to agree that it has no role in the decision.
Bush - 8/21/07 :
"Iran's leaders cannot escape responsibility for aiding attacks against coalition forces and the murder of innocent Iraqis."
"Iran's actions threaten the security of nations everywhere. ... We will confront this danger before it is too late."
"I have authorized our military commanders in Iraq to confront Tehran's murderous activities."
Bush, and his puppet master, Dick Cheney, are dead set on phase 3 of their "War on Terror". Afghanistan, then Iraq, now Iran. This phase may well be the beginning of WWIII. Congress has been useless in stopping him.
Impeachment is the only hope. Since Congress seems unwilling to put impeachment on the table, we have to push for it at the grassroots level.
Come to our special Village Board Meeting at the Fire Hall on September 24th.
