US Keeps Taking It To The Brink With Iran

Just because Iran isn't in the top headlines since releasing the captured Brits last month, it doesn't mean BushCo isn't reying on the old brinkmanship to keep to keep relations as volatile as possible.

The fascists are continuing to fund terror groups operating inside Iranian territory. Scott Ritter:
"The reality is that the US war with Iran has already begun. As we speak, American over flights of Iranian soil are taking place, using pilotless drones and other, more sophisticated capabilities."

Spineless democrats can't seem to rein in der fuhrer and refuse to abide by the constitution, basically giving the warmongers free rein to do as they please.
"..the U.S. House of Representatives rejected two measures that would have banned the Bush administration from attacking Iran without congressional approval."

Sure, there are upcoming 'talks' between Iran and the US, but the Iranians and just about everybody who knows how the warmongers operate expect negotiations to be little more than US representatives barking orders across the table.

When those show talks fail as scheduled BushCo has the draft for new sanctions to be slapped on Iran. Switzerland is fed up about being the diplomatic conduit between the two countries and has some ideas about peace, but the fascists want none of that sort of talk.

Kyrgyzstan is getting a little nervous.
"BISHKEK, May 21 (RIA Novosti) - Kyrgyzstan will close a U.S. military base on its territory if the United States uses it for purposes other than to support an antiterrorism campaign in Afghanistan, the parliamentary speaker said in an interview with RIA Novosti Monday.
Located south of Bishkek, the country's capital, Manas airbase is the only U.S. base in post-Soviet Central Asia since Uzbekistan evicted American troops from its territory in 2005. Recent media reports hinted at the possibility of the U.S. using the base in the Central Asian state to deliver air strikes against Iran

Meanwhile some very bad financial news for the Empire might make those trigger fingers a bit itchier - Kuwait severed ties with petrodollars, embraced other currencies and United Arab Emirates may not be far behind. If the dollar goes into free fall all bets are off.

So, with the current state of affairs and Bush's approval rating, shouldn't we expect pure anarchy if the monkey declares war on Iran?

Laurie, I doubt if the fascists will go to all out war before pulling off a splashy false flag, phony attack that leaves the american people in shock and awe, before the totally corrupt MSM goes to work blaming the Iranians and whipping up righteous anger to avenge such a heinous act. The fascists haven't had a very good time getting people on board their anti Iranian bandwagon (as in Cheney's mideast swing) so a big lolapalooza is probably in the offing. We should expect a huge internal disruption as I think it'll be about evenly divided between citizens as to the nuclear war that follows. Polls and all that show a lot of dissatisfaction but whenever SHTF a lot of people love that authoritarianism.
