Looks like one (Iran) is nearly down, one more to go (Syria)...

As Paul Craig Roberts warns, <Americans need desperately to comprehend that if Bush attacks Iran and Syria, as he intends, terrorism will explode, and American civil liberties will disappear into a 30-year war that will bankrupt the United States.> http://www.creators.com/opinion_show.cfm ?columnsName=pcr

Are we just too far gone, at this point, to even consider that its not going to happen?  http://www.informationclearinghouse.info /article11746.htm

Evan Bayh to Karl Rove: Bring It On!

Essentially, that's what yesterday's speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies was.  I recieved a transcript sometime after the speech yesterday.  The BayhPartisan has the full transcript up on that site.  What I am going to do is, hopefully, break down some of the speech with commentary of my own.  What Senator Bayh said is in italics and then my commentary will be all over.

Crossposted at the Kentucky Democrat, Americans for Bayh, and Daily Kos.

Beware the Ides of March

War across the entire Middle East will boil over by March 15th, if you don't stop it. Yes, you.

You, me, everybody.  It's crunch time.  There are enough pressure points to force the White House to act now to take America into a wider war.  They can't afford to wait for the summer or fall.  The mad men and women in the White House wholeheartedly believe that they have no choice but to launch a regional war in the Middle East by the middle of March, by bombing Iran.  They must, to save their mission to establish the American Empire.

If you have other plans for America than endless war, you need to help derail any attack on Iran in the coming six weeks, because the game's afoot.  It's got the green light.  Bush is going smiting again if we don't all stand up and say no.

Scott Ritter at the California Democratic Executive Board Meeting

Scott Ritter was the featured speaker at today's luncheon at the California Democratic Party's Executive Board Meeting in Manhattan Beach earlier today. I transcribed his speech fairly accurately, but please do not hold Scott Ritter accountable for any small factual errors in dates or syntax. Here it is:

I'm a registered Republican, an American and a very conservative person, but that's not the reason I'm here today. I'm here more importantly, because Art Torres invited me. The most important title of all is American. One of the brilliant ironies is being a conservative Republican and being on the same side as progressive Democrats.
