Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Shock and Awe II

Bush is at it again. And the GOP is letting him do it. There are no reasonable Republicans left. If the Democrats don't win in 2006 we'll be watching Bush engage in a pre-emptive air assault (probably with low yield nuclear "bunker busters") against Iran. Seymour Hirsch has a story about this in the New Yorker. I suggest you read it.

In other news. Bush and Cheney are having to change their story on the Valery Plame case again. Version 1.0 was that no one in the White House was involved. Version 1.1 was that they don't comment on ongoing investigations. Version 2.0 was that OK some White House staff might have been involved but certainly no one beyond Scooter Libby. Now we have version 3.0. Bush and Cheney were both involved but that's not a problem because they are allowed to leak this kind of information when ever they want.

Vote Democrat in all elections! Even a Republican dog catcher is a threat to our country right now. The GOP is completely under the thumb of war mongering religious fanatics!

Sey has been on about this for a while (see reference to this in comments from December .

I have some of the archives from the New Yorker and DVD and reading Hirsch is like reading prophecy.

Thanks for the link. I will check it out!

I must correct my last post- it is Hersh, not Hirsch. Sorry, folks.

Ooops. I misspelled it too. I'm sure he won't mind.

Here is what gets me. Hersh has been writing about this possibility of war with Iran since Jan 2005. No one but Jon Stewart picked up the story. Jon interviewed Hersh at the time about his book and the topic came up in the interview. But now, with elections coming and the President being so unpopular, every media outlet is taking about it, the White House is issuing statements that both confirm and deny what Hersh wrote. All of this resembles the build up a little to the war in Iraq.

Well all I have to say rather bitterly, "gee isn't it nice that all these people are suddenly paying attention?"

As far as I know, the bombing campaign in Kosovo may have been the only successful purely aerial campaign in history. I have theorized that the key to understanding that campaign was that Serbia intended to surrender Kosovo to US military ground forces if they came, but refused to believe until quite late in the game that it would really be coming. When that became clear, they caved. Iran will not surrender, no matter what.

But Kosovo wasn't entirely a bombing campaign. There was a small army of Kosovar and Albanian militias moving in at the same time.
