The same men who brought you the Iraq Disaster are about to launch a military strike against Iran. The Iran Disaster will be of such massively incalculable proportions to which the Bush’s Iraq Disaster would seem like a small camp fire.
LAUNCHING ATTACK AGAINST IRAN: BUSH'S PREEMPTIVE STRIKE AGAINST PROPONENTS OF CONGRESSIONAL INQUIRY INTO HIS ROLE IN THE MAKING OF IRAQ DISASTER
Is it a coincidence that the recent Bush’s military raids against Iranian diplomatic missions in Iraq all began shortly after the recent midterm elections in which the Republicans lost the control of the House and Senate to the Democrats?
In fact, during almost four (4) years of occupation of Iraq, the first reported US military action against Iranian officials occurred in Baghdad on December 24, 2006. The second such reported raid followed in Ibril only eighteen (18) days after the first one and exactly one (1) week after US House Representative Nancy Pelosi stood in front of the newly convened 110th US House of Representative and exulted: “Today we make history. Today we change the direction of our country."
Could it be -- as the Bush-Cheney team wants the public to believe -- that the Iranian government did not interfere in Iraq for almost the first four (4) years of US occupation and then after the Democrats recently gained control of both the House and Senate for the first time in a dozen years, Iranians suddenly dispatched saboteurs and their Revolutionary Guards into Iraq to conduct terrorist acts there?
Or, is this new military aggressiveness against Iran based on a desperate attempt by Mr. Bush to soften up the bumpy road ahead and shift the blame as the US public's attention is becoming increasingly focused on nailing responsibility on those who were instrumental in creating the worst foreign policy disaster in the nation's history?
It is clear that members of the Bush-Cheney team are nervously watching their dwindling public support while at the same time recent polls show increasing public demands for launching formal inquiry into the actions of those in the Bush administration who were instrumental in the making of the Iraq Disaster. Undoubtedly, the public is beginning to get focused in asking seriously fundamental questions as who should be blamed for the death of close to 3,100 Americans killed, hundreds maimed, and about 0 billion wasted in taxpayers monies -- all based on an absurd WMD story that had been fabricated. Such public inquiries could spell out the word “danger” to the ones at their receiving end – particularly at a time when the opposition party has gained control of the House and Senate.
Bush, Cheney, and Carl Rove, and the rest of their team know too well that when US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared: “impeachment is off the table,” she was only speaking in the present tense; in other words, "impeachment" may not be on the table right now but as the public's attention is becoming increasingly focused on the Bush-Cheney’s instrumental role in creating the worst foreign policy disaster in the US history, keeping impeachment off the table may be politically not a viable option for the majority congressional leaders in near future.
The Bush’s new claim that Iran, the largest Shiite nation in the World, would engage in destabilizing the pro-Iranian Shiite government of Iraq is as absurd as Bush’s fabricated claim in early 2003 that he needed to invade Iraq due to the imminent threat of WMD and Al Qaeda in that country.
Nevertheless, facts are not that important to the ideologically-driven forces that launched the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 on the basis of a purely fabricated WMD story and a non-existent Al Qaeda connection there.
On December 19, 2006, Congressional Research Service of Library of Congress revealed: “Iran's influence over the post-Saddam government in Iraq is substantial because the predominant parties in that government have long enjoyed Tehran’s sponsorship . . . Iran might not necessarily want attacks on U.S. forces because a U.S. departure from Iraq, if that were the result, might leave pro-Iranian factions vulnerable to attacks by Sunni insurgents who are well-organized, well financed by Sunnis throughout the Middle East, and, in some cases, well-trained.”
Bush did not need to invade Iraq and topple the regime of Saddam Hussein to discover that the guaranteed single benefactor of such military adventurism would be Iran. He could have just simply asked from his own father, the senior George Bush, as to why he did not seek to topple the Iraqi regime after chasing Saddam’s forces out of Kuwait in 1991. As the senior Bush’s administration officials were publicly announcing back in March 1991, they did not desire to topple Saddam and hand over Iraq on a silver platter to Iran. He could have just asked his father but he didn’t. Nothing had changed during the 1991-2003 period in the region’s geopolitical equations and the balance of power in Persian Gulf which could have realistically resulted in different conclusions than those reached by senior Bush administration in March 1991. However, the new regime in Washington was so ideologically driven that geopolitical equations in one of the World’s most complex regions were not factors to be given much weight.
Launching a military strike against Iran by Bush-Cheney may have a lot more to do with their selfishly desperate attempts of self preservation than US strategic interests. A military strike against Iran, which appears to be in full-scale preparation by Bush’s dispatch of Patriot Missel batteries and naval strike groups to the region, may present itself as one of the last few cards left in the Bush-Cheney's deck in the face of rapidly evaporating public support and increasing public desire for a full-scale investigation into the making of their Iraq Disaster.
As far as the US strategic interests are concerned, such an attack promises to be a far greater disaster for the United States national interests than the Iraq Disaster. The same men who in the process of creating their Iraq Disaster proved how little they understood the region’s complex culture and history of the past 5,000 years are about to create a disaster of incalculable proportions which potentially could engulf the Southwest Asia and beyond for decades to come -- a disaster of such massive proportions for US national interest to which the Bush’s Iraq Disaster would seem like a small camp fire.
However, in the face of the public’s increasing desire for finding real answers to the making of the Iraq Disaster at a time the Democrats have gained control of both the House and Senate, the Bush-Cheney team may not have any other option but to launch a shock and awe type naval and aerial attack on Iran.
