    I'm thinking that by Bush appointing Admiral Fallon to be the new commander of Central Command, and floating a carrier strike force over in the persian gulf, is a little too much just to be a coincedence.

    Pretty transparent scare tactic designed to get Congress to provide the extra funding Bush wants.

    Does Bush honestly think the USA is the only country allowed to have an agenda? Countries do this all the time, even the USA.

    eventually, US will leave, and iran and syria would still be there, so, how on earth does he think Iraq will not be with iran finally?

    I'm assuming, based on previous comments, that he means we're about to fall just like the Roman Empire did.

    I'm so happy we're planning to engage in battle in three different Middle East countries. :rolleyes: :mad:

    If this were any other guy in the President's office, I might actually buy the explanation that we have to go to yet another country to cut off the supply line to the terrorists. But then, if this were any other guy, we wouldn't be involved in this disaster at all, of course.

    I think more countries should be shaped like the first letter of their name. Makes them easier to find on a map. :)

    Yeah, but on the other hand, if they attack Iran, too. All the engaging lands will be connected, and when you play Risk, that is always an advantage...

    So we have Iran incursions into Iraq and supplying shaped charges for roadside bombs and a Nuclear Weapons program. I also imagine that Iran would love to try some of those new missiles that fly underwater and Bush has moved a Carrier group into the region and then we heard about the Chineese sub that was following a carrier group and they had no clue it was there. None. Iran & China are doing Oil deals. Then Iran has Kilo class subs and its new missile, what better way to embarass the US then by sinking a carrier?

    Wouldn't it just be easier to change the name of the countries to match the shape?

    For example, Jitaly.

    Wow. Does the U.S really want a wider conflict?

    the u.s goes into Iran and the Middle East will become even more unstable, with countries siding with Iran and of course, including terrorists.

    Would that be this guy:

    Or this one?

    The ~70% minority of us don't, but the ~30% majority that thinks Bush was either put into power by God or the stock market still thinks he has a shot to win this. Or at least, hopes he can. Of course, there's faith, and there's being completely oblivious to how bad things are.

    Even a small majority of our own troops are against it, as are a majority of the Generals, but GW is going to do what he wants regardless of what anyone else says in a vain and desperate attempt to save what's left of his legacy.

    Yeah, nukes in mid-east is a bad thing, and we should do everything we can to keep them out of there. Which is the reason we (as in: rest of the world) should invade Israel ASAP. According to experts, Israel has about 200 nuclear warheads. Obviously, we can't a menace like this to continue. I mean, if Iran is under a threat of invasion because they have a research program that might allow them to develop nuclear weapons sometime in the future, then surely a country that has large cache of nuclear weapons as we speak should be invaded and occupied ASAP? Then we have the case of Pakistan and India as well....

    Or do we have double-standards at play here?

    Is he trying to be funny or something? Iraq was relatively stable before USA got involved. Now it's a chaotic hell-hole. And who is USA telling Iran to "keep their folks at home", when USA has hauled their army to the opposite side of the globe?

    Hey USA: Please don't destabilize rest of the world: Keep your folks at home, mmmmkay?

    We're trying. Our leaders aren't listening. Sorry in advance if we destroy you. If it makes you feel any better, those of us paying attention enough to care will write some angry letters. When we get some time.

    I hope this whole situation in the Middle East will end the era of Pax Americana. I think it is time for a change. If GWB is nuts enough (I think he could do another excursion to Iran by making up any reason as he has already demonstrated his extreme competency in doing so before the current Iraq war), this could happen before the end of his term.

    George has now told the troops to kill any Iranians in Iraq and treat them as Al-Queda:eek: Its just a matter of time. I wonder if they will bring back the draft for this one or just use an Air Campaign.
    I must wonder though if George has ever thought about controling the border? For some reason BushCo dont seem to understand border control at all. He's doing as good as job on the Iraq/Iran border as he is on the U.S./Mexican Border. Amazing.

    Go into Iran? What with? Bluster is all well and good, if you can back it up. If we need a "surge" in Iraq to control Baghdad and maybe the border with Iran, with what would we "go in"?

    Besides, Iran has enough internal troubles. Too much money spent on nukes and Hezbollah, and not enough on other civilian infrastructure. Inflation is a problem, particularly with food prices. Apparently, a fair percentage of the people are a bit fed up with all the saber-rattling.
