So, is the following inevitable?  Reply with quote  

Now that Shrub is our new Emperor, next month, after the U.N. Security Council meets to discuss Iran's nuclear program, will Shrub roll troops into Tehran, where we will find ourselves fighting a war on two fronts? Furthermore, will this add fodder to the terrorists claim that the U.S. is waging a war against Islam (because, come ON, if we weren't, Bush would attack North Korea next, not Iran), and thus fueling the flames of their fury, will they set off a dirty bomb in a major American City? Not to mention the fact that a draft will be necessary to keep fighting all these wars?? Am I just being paranoid? If my son was 17 instead of 4, I am pretty I would have us on a plane to Montreal right now...

I suppose Bush deserves this, what with running a campaign based upon fear, but I wouldn't take it to this level. Not any time soon.

Too much on the plate.

Bush doesn't have a vendetta against Iran the way he did against Saddam so he may try to be a little more circumspect and pull a Cambodia style exploit

vendetta?  Reply with quote  

While I don't dispute the fact that Saddam was an evil bastard who should have been removed from power years ago... What did he do to Shrub (I like that, I'm going to use that from now on), that would bring about (?) a vendetta?

I've heard people mention this sort of thing before... "Shrub is getting back at SH", "Shrub is this or that"... What did SH do to piss Shrub off so badly??? Confused (Hey, this looks like the face Shrub makes when he gives speeches!!!)

"He tried to kill my dad."
Does that ring a bell?

Apparently he forgot his pledge of getting the USout of the business of
"Nation Building" ... of course not much "building of nations" is going on.
Though lots of rubble to go around.


Second biggest oil reserve ... (Iraq)
N-O-rth Korea ... "N-O-" ... translate to "No Oil."
(Though if you wanted me to back the move on Iraq, he had to go into
No-oil Korea first)

Iran ... oil
Syria ... not so much.

Afghanistan ... POPPIES ... oh, but a needed oil-n-gas pipeline or two.
Cuba ... cigars, but no oil.

Well, Gretchen, Iran has already agreed to postpone its uranium enrichment program until everything is sorted out. As far as WoMD go, we're not likely to see Iran be hit next, but their call for Uranium-based energy has put them on the spotlight, since the uranium can be used to produce serious weapons.

I personally believe Iran will comply and they won't be hit [next].

Actually, that agreement about stopping the enrichment of Uranium kind of fell through. There is a new one on the table, but I'm not sure that it is place yet.

The first agreement is from 2003 and it fell through because they agreed to stop enriching uranium. It was too vague. Did that mean they could keep building centrifuges and purifying the gasses needed in the enrichment process and still not enrich?

I haven't seen the details of the new agreement but I would have to assume that it is more detailed than the previous one.

The quote fangs around " "He tried to kill my dad." "
belonged to pResident Evil ...but S.H. may have tried for
my father, too, after all the maps I made for the cause
back in '90 and '91.

The pisser was ... after Baghdad fell some idiot in the next
office "above" mine, Emailed info on the Geology of Iraq as
if it was work related and that we were going to have to start
working on it (oil&gas-wise). I never opened that Email, didn't
delete either. I just want that reminder of seven levels of
stupidity. And "why" we were there.

But if Sad-mad had eliminated my paternal parental unit,
I might have cried my Rice out.

1993. Clinton was the new President and I believe Bush Sr. was going to a meeting in Geneva or something along those lines. A failed hit attempt on Bush resulted in a bombing campaign on Iraq early in Clinton's years.

Thus the quote "He tried to kill my dad."
(It's the closet thing to a complete, pause-free understandable sentence W has ever said.)

So why hasn't Junior blown the shit out of Japan? ... They shot his father down during WWII?
