It's tough Instigating a War While Playing the Victim But Bush is Almost there!

On the Stennis, which leads one of two U.S. carrier groups in the region, Cheney told service members gathered in sweltering heat in a huge hangar below the flight deck that they serve in a "place of tension and many conflicts while ignoring that Bush caused it.
"Persian Gulf countries produce more than a quarter of the world's oil, and the vast bulk of it passes through the Strait of Hormuz in tankers en route to oil-importing countries. The strait, located between Oman and Iran, is only about 34 miles wide at its narrowest point, and tankers typically travel in and out of the gulf in two-mile-wide channels through the strait. Vice President Cheney, visiting a U.S. aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf, vowed today to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and "dominating" the region, and he pledged that U.S. forces would keep open the sea lanes that carry about 20 percent of the world's oil trade.

"That son of a Bee" Those were purposely threatening fighting words aimed at picking a fight and coming from the very spot where it will be fought. Those of you that have read my diaries and there have been many on this subject, know that attacking Iran is only "one" of Bush's original goals.
He diverted from the so called war on terror in Afghanistan so he could get into the middle east and used attacking Iraq as his reason to get in there. He now must stay the course in the middle of their civil war long enough for him to find an excuse to attack Iran.
With interests on both sides spoiling for a fight the reason will soon be found and it will start in the Strait of Hormuz. We know the Patriot missiles are in place around the Gulf. the Charles De Gaulle is standing guard at the entrance and our third carrier supposedly to replace one of the others is due in the Gulf soon. Can anyone tell me when it is due?
Cheney as you know was just in Iraq telling American troops how they are fighting terrorism and must stay the course. He makes them feel righteous and Patriotic including two of my sons but his real intention is that they stay the course long enough to find a reason to attack Iran and fully en "gulf" the entire middle east in his so called "new middle east order"
Cheney said the goal is to prevent Iran's Dominance in the region. their "drive" for dominance was made possible by Bush destabilizing Iraq. Cheney also said the goal is to keep nuclear weapons out of the hands of Iran. It seems to me that the only stated goal from Iran is to have nuclear power. It seems to me after delving into their situation that this might be a valid goal and for a reason we never hear because it would fly in the face of what Bush is trying to get us to believe. We hear constantly from Bushco that Iran's goal is to make nuclear weapons. I don't know if that is true or not but if it is it seems like it again is in response to a threat from us.
Cheney said that throughout the region our country has interests to protect and commitments to honor. I still want to know where the Nimitz is right now but He said that with two carrier strike groups in the Gulf we're sending clear messages to friends and adversaries alike. We'll keep the sea lanes open. We'll stand with our friends in opposing extremism and strategic threats. We'll disrupt attacks on our own forces.
He said we would continue bringing relief to those who suffer and delivering justice to the enemies of freedom. Meanwhile Iran's top nuclear negotiator warned that a compromise over the country's nuclear program will not be possible if the West continues to demand that Iran suspend a program to enrich uranium. knowing that right from the beginning makes it very critical to understanding the politics of threats utilized by Bush. He knows there will be no backing down on uranium enrichment that is why it is made a critical issue.
With no reason for Iran to back down and all the reasons supplied to them by Bush to fight it is only a matter of time before this whole thing blows up. The Strait while Cheney vows to keep open to those allies importing and exporting oil I just want to remind you that Bush seems to be banking on keeping the Gulf open but I wouldn't count on it. I see a major disruption and when all is said and done China and Russia who are now military allies will step in to protect their own vital interests. Repercussions go on and on and I have discussed them many times so I won't again right now but other countries will be in dire straights when the Strait of Hormuz is tied up but we will have other alternatives. Oh what a tangled web we weave!
