Like a Dog that Returns to its Vomit

The signs are clearer every day. Bush is about to attack Iran. Why can't America see it?
Rather than winding down one war, Bush is starting another. The entire world knows this and is discussing Bush's planned attack on Iran in many forums. It is only Americans who haven't caught on. A few senators have said that Bush must not attack Iran without the approval of Congress, and postings on the Internet demonstrate world wide awareness that Iran is in the Bush Regime's cross hairs. But Congress and the Media – and the demonstration in Washington – are focused on Iraq.
So here are some clues in case you still don't believe it.
  • The US government has long considered Iran to be a state sponsor of terrorism, and will reportedly put Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps on the terrorism list.
  • Last year, the BBC reported that US contingency plans for air strikes on Iran extend beyond nuclear sites and include most of the country's military infrastructure.
  • The Senate report last April by Gen. David Petraeus and Amb. Ryan Crocker was interpreted by some as an argument for going into Iran.
  • Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has hinted that U.S. action on Iran nukes is near.
  • The rhetoric and the aggressive posturing from the White House, and the MSM's echoing of the talking points are a frightening repeat of the arguments made for invading Iraq five years ago.
And just like five years ago, I find myself looking for some signs of sanity from voters, politicians and pundits. There are a few:
However, Bush will never understand his previous errors. He is like a dog that returns to its vomit. He will repeat his folly. He will go back to what has made this country sick. I hope the media doesn't eat this up too.

Americans aren't clueless, but the big businesses behind Home Security are formidable.
