All roads to heven lead through Tehran:

An update from 8/26

The WaPo reports:

"U.N. inspectors investigating Iran's nuclear program angrily complained to the Bush administration and to a Republican congressman yesterday about a recent House committee report on Iran's capabilities, calling parts of the document 'outrageous and dishonest' and offering evidence to refute its central claims. Officials of the United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency said in a letter that the report contained some 'erroneous, misleading and unsubstantiated statements.'"

Who the hell is going to listen to these Saddam lovers! Remember when Mohamed ElBaradei said Iraq probably didn't have WMD right before the invasion? Dick "straight shooter" Cheney set him straight alright. He told Tim Russert on March 26 2003:

"I think Mr. ElBaradei frankly is wrong. And I think if you look at the track record of the International Atomic Energy Agency and this kind of issue, especially where Iraq’s concerned, they have consistently underestimated or missed what it was Saddam Hussein was doing. I don’t have any reason to believe they’re any more valid this time than they’ve been in the past."

So, who are you going to listen to?

As I've said before, regardless of how the negotiations go with Iran, W. and Co. are ready to go after Iran. 'But wouldn't they have to do something like this with the public behind them,' you ask? How could they launch another war without destroying themselves politically?

First of all, Bush & Co. are finished after the 06' midterms, so they have nothing to lose. Joseph Cirincione told Terry Gross on Aug. 30, that from what he's been hearing; the administration thinks they've lost the American people already, so they might as well go ahead and do the right thing.

This is the type of situations countries get into when they have a sonomulent press, a disengaged electorate and a rubber stamp Congress. These guys have probably decided they might as well just throw the dice and maybe this time they'll get lucky. If they screw up again, they'll just turn the war on the American people if they dare to punish them. Anyone for a third term for W.? And just in case things go really wrong, there's always an all expenses paid trip to heaven for W. & Co.

Remember, Sy Hersh wrote that W. has a "messianic" belief that his legacy, such as it is, depends on "saving" Iran. He must do "what no Democrat or Republican, if elected in the future, would have the courage to do."
