As I have said in a previous thread, Bush willl not leave office with the possibility of Iran being Nuke capable with the possibility of the DEMs taking control of the house, senate and the whitehouse. His mentality is he will tkae care of the critters once and for all. Buy oil stocks now, mainly the ones located in canada and as well BPT (pays a hell of a dividend each quarter) or better yet buy shares in oil and gas wells, just search on the net you can find them, mainly in TX. I just recieved my first payment from a well we invested in last year. Investment was USD 27.500 and first payout 3.400 USD (Payout for 2nd Quarter production for this year) THe well is estimated to produce for 30 years.

IMHO an attack on Iran is not imminent, however, staging warships off the coast of Iran within the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman is. They are likely staged in close proximity now just as a show of force and influence. Our troop count is very low given our current involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan and any invasion must be followed by ground troops.

As for those geographically challenged, Iran is situated smack dab between Iraq and Afghanistan. Think about it. How convenient would it be for the US to stage an attack in the future (albeit with the assistance of allies, the likes of which we are rapidly losing) given our current strategic positions? It should come as no surprise that saber rattling is occuring since Iran is thumbing its nose at UN requirements to discontinue uranium enrichment and threatening sanctions.

Regardless of party affiliation I, for one, am ashamed at the fact the United States is fast becoming the bastard child.

Silly silly. Nothing will happen to Iran until after Nov 7. We wouldn't want to do anything to make gasoline prices rise right before the election, now would we?

Iran's next step will be to forment the kind of unrest seen Iraq in Saudi Arabia.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I do not think Bush plans for any invasion, he plans on bombing the shit out of those nuke installations.

You are a wise man now that you see what we have become. We had a real opportunity right after 911 to bridge with many nations that shared our outrage. We chose instead to alienate them because we thought that we had a blank permit to do whatever we wanted for the "cause" (War on Terror). They could have been all with us without having our president sound so stupid by asking everyone if they were with us or with "them". If we had cooled our heels on Iraq and concentrated on Afghanistan we would not be running so thin and we would not have had so much of a division between parties. We should have gone to Afghanistan to destroy and not so much to play the good guy by being a nation builder. Once we would have obliterated the Taliban and Al-Qaeda to smithereens maybe then we could set up aid through the UN and gotten the hell out of there. There is no reason for us to be anywhere to build nations or change cultures. I could care less if their women wear burkas or G strings that's their fkn problem.

Captain: My Men, I have good news! Over the next few weeks we're going to begin reducing our troop numbers here in Iraq!

Troops: Yeah!! [Many comments move through the crowd about the anticipation of seeing friends and family soon.]

Captain: Yes, that's right, many of you will be redeployed to Iran to stop the problems there from becoming another Iraq!

Yeah right!
It's like a double cheesburger, because our fat asses can't be satisfied with one artery clogging "snack". I am not knocking what our boyz are capable of doing under the right leadership but right now this is not the right leadership.
Iran will be worse than Iraq, mark my words.
