A Plan To Attack Iran
The wingnuts in the Bush Administration -- and outside it -- have clearly determined that an attack on Iran is required. Norman Podhoretz (now Giuliani's foreign affairs mentor) almost demands it. Bush in his press conference today talked of World War III. They have just 15 months to get this done, though, before the next Democratic President sweeps into office.
But I don't think Bush will have the balls for it. I think he will worry about his historical place, having already weakened the US military through his commander-in-chief blunders in Afghanistan and Iraq. But I think he still wants to attack Iran. A quandary, unless ... Bush resigns and allows Cheney to run the balance of his term.
Cheney, of course, has nothing but a negative legacy to protect, so why would he worry? On Day One he moves his furniture in, on day two he sends the Marines and the bombers into Iran.
