Bomb, Bomb, Bomb. Bomb, Bomb Iran.

It seems to me the purpose of latest diplomatic talks with Iran is to further raise America's ire with another member of what Bush declared the "Axis of Evil" back in 2002. How ironic that we, who invaded Iraq under false pretenses, accuse Iraq's neighbor of meddling in Iraq. When will the world learn that no one is allowed to meddle except us? We now have a third carrier group in the Persian Gulf. We don't have the military forces to invade Iran, but we have plenty of air attack forces. It won't be long now and we'll send cruise missiles or bombs to selected targets in Iran. Iran has a larger and more powerful military than Iraq did. One can only guess what their response would be. The bombing will certainly unite the people behind the mullahs who actually lead the country. For all his bluster, Ahmadinejad is a figurehead with no real political power. I fear our military forces in Iraq may be at greater risk. What if Iran's army invaded Iraq to attack us? How many Shiites in Iraq would join in? Regardless of the possibilities I fear an escalation that will prompt Bush to authorized the use of a nuclear weapon. After all, anything you do to fight Evil is Good and that fight against Evil will be his legacy.
