Another 9/11

I want to call your attention to an article posted on Smirking Chimp that has obviously really touched a nerve since, of this writing, it generated 224 comments. It's entitled, "Is another 9/11 in the works?" and it's about Bush's plan to attack Iran and what he is doing and may yet do to justify it. Here's an excerpt:

Opinion polls indicate that the Bush regime has succeeded in its plan to make Americans fear Iran as the greatest threat America faces.

The Bush regime has created a major dispute with Iran over that country's nuclear energy program and then blocked every effort to bring the dispute to a peaceful end.

In order to gain a pretext for attacking Iran, the Bush regime is using bribery and coercion in its effort to have Iran referred to the UN Security Council for sanctions.

In recent statements President Bush and Pentagon chief Donald Rumsfeld blamed Iran for the Iraqi resistance, claiming that the roadside bombs used by the resistance are being supplied by Iran.

It is obvious that Bush intends to attack Iran and that he will use every means to bring war about.

Yet, Bush has no conventional means of waging war with Iran. His bloodthirsty neoconservatives have prepared plans for nuking Iran. However, an unprovoked nuclear attack on Iran would leave the US, already regarded as a pariah nation, totally isolated.

I recommend that you click through and read the whole article. It's short. It will also scare you silly. But we need to know what is possible - and not only possible but likely.
