Dick Cheney is nucking futs...

Pat Buchanans The American Conservative (not my standard reading fare, I found this by linking from Crooks and Liars to Direland) claims that "acting under instructions from Vice President Dick Cheney’s office" the Pentagon is planning a "large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons" in response to a 9/11 type attack. According to the article "As in the case of Iraq, the response is not conditional on Iran actually being involved in the act of terrorism directed against the United States." Further "Several senior Air Force officers involved in the planning are reportedly appalled at the implications of what they are doing—that Iran is being set up for an unprovoked nuclear attack—but no one is prepared to damage his career by posing any objections."

In a previous post I made the prediction based on our experience in Iraq that the U.S. would not become involved in another war of choice. I must amend that prediction based upon this story. And this to me is demonstratable proof that the people running our nation are freaking insane.

I have no doubt that Al Queda would love nothing more than to draw us into Iran. All they need do is strike us again to reach that goal it appears. And of course if we nuke Iran without provocation, we will be ostracised (correctly so) by the rest of the world. So we will carry on in a war on terror being fought by people who may as well be Al Quedas Washington D.C. executive branch and totally sacrifice all moral high ground we haven't already lost with the Iraq disaster. This simply can't be allowed to happen! It is time for people to stop worrying about their careers and start thinking about America. They shouldn't be raising objections... they should be marching from the Pentagon to Congress with this stuff and starting impeachment proceedings. If this nighmare were to actually occur, these planners would rightly take a place in history beside the Nuremburg defendents who just followed orders in planning crimes against humanity. The notion that America would actually nuke a nation with no provocation, is absolutely horrid.
