War Is Diplomacy?

October 3, 2006

Remember during the 2004 campaign when the Neo-Cons where telling us that the liberal playbook was 1984? Well it looks like Bush has taken a page from the book. The administration is saying that war is a form of diplomacy. That if they begin a war or at lest prepare for one, this is some how a step towards diplomacy.

Condoleezza Rice has stated that the time is now for Iran to stop enriching uranium, or face the sanctions of the U.N.  As I reported, the other day the second stage of planning for war with Iran is nearly complete.

As of October 1st the Pentagon ordered the Eisenhower out of dry-dock along with Minesweepers to the Gulf, according to an article on [The Nation.com].

The Nation has learned that the Bush Administration and the Pentagon have moved up the deployment of a major “strike group” of ships, including the nuclear aircraft carrier Eisenhower as well as a cruiser, destroyer, frigate, submarine escort and supply ship, to head for the Persian Gulf, just off Iran’s western coast.

According to Lieut. Mike Kafka, a spokesman at the headquarters of the Second Fleet, based in Norfolk, Virginia, the Eisenhower Strike Group, bristling with Tomahawk cruise missiles, has received orders to depart the United States in a little over a week. Other official sources in the public affairs office of the Navy Department at the Pentagon confirm that this powerful armada is scheduled to arrive off the coast of Iran on or around October 21.

Sending such a convoy is a good indication that the administration is gearing up for something. Could be a war with Iran, or could it be they are planning to show their willingness to back their threats, if Iran does not back down.

Either way we need to remember here that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is as crazy as Bush, if not more so. If he feels threatened, he may attack. He has already made it clear, he has no problem playing a key part in bringing on the end times.

 

                                Is Iran going to use enriched uranium for peaceful purposes?

One thing you have to remember also is that along with being considered a threat to Israel, Iran holds votes on the OPEC board. Iran’s main export is oil. With Iran being OPEC’s second largest producer and holding 10% of the worlds oil reserves, Iran becomes the perfect target of this administration.

I read somewhere, someone in the administration said, Iran ran has enough oil reserve that they do not need Nuclear energy.

The Iranian Government has said that they want to develop nuclear energy so that they can concentrate the reserves for export. Although they rely on the export of oil, which brought in 4.6 billion dollars last year, which was a 1.6 growth over 2004. Iran’s rate of inflation is 16% yearly.

This is just a few reasons that Iran gives for uranium enrichment, But the White House says that intelligence points to weaponry. I ask you to remember, as you make up your own mind on this. The Bush intelligence is what got over 2,000 U.S. troops killed and hundred of thousands injured and maimed. And I am not forgetting the Iraqi casualties.

    We are going into Iran if people don’t get on the streets October 5, 2006 and march to drive this regime out.

    Iran will NOT be pretty. I see a draft coming if we go in there.

    Good entry ABA!
