It is Cheney's job to push it through and they will not stop. They continue to be committed to their basic plan: Destroy Iran and Syria, and make Israel the dominant power in the region. When I was googling looking for this report I found many in reference to helping Jordan and Turkey which is interesting in light of what has been transpiring of late with Turkey but here is the Perle Wurmser Report I wanted to show you. A clean break
They will not leave period and even if they did the damage has been done and the middle east breakdown will commence embroiling the entire middle east then encompass the entire world. It will not be stopped now despite a threat by Democrats,Chavez to hit us where it hurts, our wallets and our gas tanks, and the UN. Also remember that monstrous monument to this middle east failure Bush is building in Iraq. There is no end in sight and the exorbitant cost is approaching 3/4 of a Billion dollars.
Anyway, I find it laughable that anyone thinks Bushco will listen to them but A Democratic senator on Saturday accused President Bush and congressional Republicans of hindering his party's attempts to chart a new course in Iraq even though U.S. troops are fighting violence "they cannot possibly resolve." They don't get it but Bush wants a permanent presence in the middle east and doesn't want the problem resolved. He just needs an excuse to stay there until the middle east explodes!
Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pennsylvania, said increased troop levels ordered earlier this year to give Iraqi politicians breathing space to meet political and diplomatic goals have not had the intended result."That means our troops are fighting for a peace that we seem more interested in achieving than the Iraqi politicians do themselves," Casey said while delivering the Democrats' weekly radio address. read the wasted concern
The Iraqi Politicians do not want unity they want their own separate Autonomy. They need us to leave so they can go after each other but Bush will not leave until he furthers this mess and we are forced to continue fighting!
Chavez is even adding his two cents. In his opening address of a rare OPEC summit, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez warned the United States on Saturday that oil prices would further surge if the U.S. contemplates an attack against his country or Iran. The summit of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries opened Saturday in Saudi Arabia, with heads of states and delegates from 12 of the world's biggest oil-producing nations listening to a recitation from the Quran.
After the quotes from Islam's holy book, Chavez warned that the U.S. should not target OPEC members for foreign policy reasons. "If the United States attempts the madness of invading Iran or attacking Venezuela again, the price of oil is probably going to reach $200, not just $100," Chavez said. While Iran has been in a standoff with the U.S. over its nuclear program, left-wing Chavez is a bitter antagonist of President Bush.
"We are witnessing constant threats against Iran. I think OPEC should strengthen itself in this capacity and demand respect for the sovereignty of our nations, if the developed world wants a guaranteed supply of oil." It was the third full OPEC summit since the organization was created in 1960. Chavez's whole story
Meanwhile Western pressure on Iran to halt its uranium enrichment program has no legal basis and will not prevail, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said Sunday in the wake of a U.N. report that Tehran sees as a major political victory. "If threats and adventurism are aimed at depriving the Iranian nation of its legal nuclear rights, they will never succeed," Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini told reporters.
"I do not see any legal basis for illogical and unrealistic endeavors" against Iran's nuclear program, Hosseini said. On Thursday, a report by the U.N. nuclear watchdog concluded that Iran has been generally truthful about key aspects of its nuclear history, but warned that its knowledge of Tehran's present atomic work was shrinking. please read the whole story
* Bush's pressure on Iran is working as any idiot would have expected, they are going further underground with their efforts and it is just a matter of time before Bush can scare enough people to find his excuse to attack. Despite all the threats from here and around the world and advice to the contrary he will ignore all good advice once again as he did to get in the middle east by attacking Iraq.
He will once again ignore all good advice so he can attack Iran and further what he thinks will be his new middle east and world (dis?)order. Remember, at the same time, Pakistan is preparing to erupt and the world is rallying to go against Bush!
