US War with Iran - Pretext

One gets the feeling that the entire idea of attacking Iraq was a pretext to attack Iran. Econo-Girl would urge somebody to talk sense into the head of our President, but is afraid it would only get them arrested.

Bush will use al Sadr's presence in Iran as a pretext to start a war with them. Watch for a media build-up on the evils of al Sadr. Already Econo-Girl has seen him compared to Osama bin Laden.

The only chance to escape the impending debacle is for Iran to talk to Germany, and get Germany to talk to Israel and Britain about approaching Bush about not doing this.

People who are comparing the rhetoric about Iraq to what is being said by the President about Iran are correct. We live in dangerous times.

It does look like this, but I don't want to believe it.

What if Bush says "invade Iran" and the military Generals say "no". What then?

Seriously, I think if he goes into Iran his time in office is over. We the people will take to the streets, and shut the place down till be is out.

If we invade Iran, Nancy Pelosi will be the next President - before the 2008 elections.
