It's Official...Petraeus is marching US towards war with Iran

How long do we have before the Bush administration TAKES US into our third war in six years? According to General David Petraeus' recent statements on Iran...not long..not long at all.

On Saturday, Petraeus gave a speech to reporters in which he basically linked Iran to everything going wrong in Iraq. Assassinated governors, smuggled sophisticated weaponry, the dreaded explosively formed projectiles (EFPs)..and oh yeah...the Iranian ambassador to Iraq..he's a Qods force member, too. Here are a few of his statements...
"They are responsible for providing the weapons, the training, the funding and in some cases the direction for operations that have indeed killed U.S. soldiers,"

"There is no question about the connection between Iran and these components, (the) attacks that have killed our soldiers."
"The ambassador is a Qods force member," said Petraeus, before appearing to suggest that Kazemi-Qomi was not under the U.S. military spotlight because he was a diplomat.
"There should be no question about the malign, lethal involvement and activities of the Qods force in this country"

"They are implicated in the assassination of some governors in the southern provinces," said Petraeus.

Asked to be more specific, he said one case "was clearly an explosively formed projectile".

"They only come from Iran and they are only used by militias so it's a sort of a signature trademark of militia extremists. The other case the suspicion is the same, we just don't have the same quality of forensics."

Asked if there was intelligence directly linking Iran to the two bomb attacks, he said: "I would not comment on this." Read the full article

Amazing...without a doubt we are off to war....again. Soon Fox News will be broadcasting 24/7 in 'night vision'. We'll start seeing the Pentagon flashing video propaganda of how 'pin point' their air strikes have been. The sky will be filled with tracers flying through the air in all directions.

Folks...We the People, have seen this 'show' all too often lately. Stop BUSH/CHENEY NOW!

Same Players. Different Scandal.

As I read your post, the words of Bob Dylan ring sadly in my head:

...If another war starts
It's them we must fight
To hate them and fear them
To run and to hide
And accept it all bravely
With God on my side.

But now we got weapons
Of the chemical dust
If fire them we're forced to
Then fire them we must
One push of the button
And a shot the world wide
And you never ask questions
When God's on your side.

In a many dark hour
I've been thinkin' about this
That Jesus Christ
Was betrayed by a kiss
But I can't think for you
You'll have to decide
Whether Judas Iscariot
Had God on his side.

So now as I'm leavin'
I'm weary as Hell
The confusion I'm feelin'
Ain't no tongue can tell
The words fill my head
And fall to the floor
If God's on our side
He'll stop the next war.

Anyway, the point is that we the people are absolutely powerless after all these years of GOP rule and Dem conciliation. The only way we are going to get any peace or prosperity back is to dump every Dem who supports BushCo, starting with Reid and Pelosi, and put progressive Dems in who will work for us.
So go run for office or find a candidate to work for.

Alternatively, let's set up a national sickout for the day the bombs fall on Iran. Let's boycott Xmas and make a donation to ACT BLUE in your family member's or friends name. Go to a local Dem committee meeting and start taking back your party!
