Next stop, Iran

(HT to

The Bush(whacked) administration has long-said that a war with Iran is not something they’re working on, but yet there are continuning signs that point or suggest otherwise, now someone in the administration has flat-out said otherwise.

Vice President Dick “Dick” Cheney’s top national security aide has been quoted by the Washington Post that a war this year with Iran is “a real possibility.”

The aide’s name is John Hannah… and he is no stranger to rhetoric, subturfugeor good old fashioned lying…

According to ThinkProgress, Hannah replaced Scooter Libby as the head of Cheney’s national security staff in Bush’s second term. During the first Bush term, Hannah wrote the first draft of the ever-infamous speech given by Secretary of State Colin Powell to the United Nations while trying to drum-up support for an invasion war with Iraq. Additionally, Hannah was one of the primary sources for (false) pre-war intelligence garnered from Iraqi exiles that bypassed all U.S. intelligence agencies (at who’s request is not known) and sent directly to the White House…

As ThinkProgress notes; “John Hannah’s comments about Iran should be taken seriously. He knows how to mislead a nation into war”, and this is why we should all be worrying.

Is there anyone left in this world, let alone this country, that believes the United States can handle another war??

We’re fighting one in Afghanistan (such as it is with troops being moved out of there and dropped into Iraq), and a huge one in Iraq… can we afford to fight another?

While I realize that I am not a military strategist… I know what I think, and in my opinion the question of whether or not our nation can afford to get involved in another war is simple…
