Israeli Official: “Attack On Iran Unavoidable”

Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Shaul Mofaz has told Israeli newspaper reporters that sanctions against Iran were not working and that an Israeli attack against Iran’s nuclear development sites was becoming “unavoidable.” “If Iran continues with its program for developing nuclear weapons, we will attack it. The sanctions are ineffective,” Shaul Mofaz told the mass-circulation Yedioth […]


Window For War With Iran Slammed Shut?

When is a nuclear threat NOT a nuclear threat? When the Bush administration thinks it IS one. Despite a current intelligence report that indicates that Iran’s nuclear weapons program was halted in 2003, current and former members of Team Bush continue to assert that Iran is a looming threat to American security and the security […]

Lieberman: Let’s Bomb Iran Too!

There’s something about being an independent politician that must allow these maverick “people’s candidates” to feel free to speak their minds, especially when doing so goes against the grain of not just their supposed “peers,” but most of the country (including their constituents) as well. Sometimes, these kinds of political statements are refreshing, opening what […]


"I Think It’s Important For The President To Lay Out A Timetable…"

On the day before Bush is set to veto a war funding bill that includes a withdrawal timetable for US troops, let’s examine some past remarks from our Dear Leader… This post’s title words were said by current president George W. Bush, way back in 1999 when he was just a lowly governor from Texas […]


Fighting For Something That Was Never There To Begin With

No, I’m not talking about the WMD’s that were going to appear in a “mushroom cloud” if American failed to dethrone Saddam Hussein. I’m talking about the unified, democratic Iraq theory that is now driving America’s misguided military misadventure. But the two are cut from the same cloth. Just as there never were any significant […]


What’s $3 Billion Between Friends? (Throwing Money Away In Iraq)

As President Bush prepares to ask Congress to throw another $1.2 billion dollars into the gaping maw that is the Iraq Reconstruction Fund, a recent report from the independent Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction shows that at least $3 Billion has been wasted in such efforts since US demolition reconstruction efforts began in 2003. […]


I’m Supporting The Surge

For the second time in as many weeks, President Bush addressed the nation and orated at great lengths about the ‘way forward in Iraq.’ First, on January 10th, the president announced his decision, despite overwhelming concensus to the contrary, to increase the number of American troops in Iraq, escalate his warlike stance towards Iran, and […]


Spreading Democracy-Target Iran

At my house, we like to spend some time putting together jigsaw puzzles. It’s a fun family activity that also stretches our minds spatially. So it’s no real surprise that I am a ‘puzzle’ kind of guy. I’ve been looking at a few new puzzle pieces lately though and I am not in the least […]


If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Ignore ‘Em

There were no overt surprises in the President’s address to the nation. Since late last week, the basic outline of the speech had been reprinted throughout the MSM and blogosphere. And it should be no surprise that Bush is remaining true to form, that is, as myopic and stubborn as ever. Despite the fact that […]


Another Shell Game

Early reports regarding the New and Improved Bush Iraq plan show little more than shell game, with a dash less accountability thrown in for good measure, and a nod to concerted status quo plus. For a while now, we’ve heard Team Bush lubricate the public with the notion that more troops in Iraq are inevitable, […]
