    I am about to the point that I wish that the Bush administration would just go ahead and go to war with Iran and get this war fever over with.

    www.zogby.com/news/ReadNews.dbm?ID=1379

    The wild card in this is that if an attack on Iran causes the radical Islamics in Pakistan to rise up and overthrow the government then there will be radical Islamists with real missiles with real nuclear weapons.

    So then I reckon the Bush administration will feel that it is necessary to go to war with Pakistan.

    We are in a worldwide war with Islam anyway. I think that we can keep Pakistan on our side. What we might do is to allow Israel to use our airbases in Iraq and let them do the actual bombing of Iran. Israel was the 4th most powerful nation militarily in the world, although I do not know if that information is current. It is clear that Hillary's idea of diplomacy would have worked a long time ago if it were going to work.

    We need to put everything on hold until after the November 6 elections this year in order to see how strong the GOP is. Indianapolis will be a good test of GOP power next Tuesday. The Vice-President will be here tomorrow to speak at the auditorium of the World War Memorial.

    If the radical Islamists rise up and overthrow the Pakistani government they will not be on our side.

    Yup. But it's not just Bush. If you look, he has several countries on board with this.

    And IF the radicals seize the gov't in Pakistan, look for a surgical strike by Israel on said nukes. I'm positive they got the whole place mapped out.

    There is no justification to invade or bomb Iran. The war profiteers would love it, no matter if their revenues depend on American blood. Also, if it happens, the draft will be back. Then you'll see those Young Republican warmongers becoming anti-war protesters.

    Exactly. I am completely, utterly, and unequivocally opposed to war with Iran. If Bush invades Iran, then he will have solidified his position as the absolute worst president in American history. It would be a disaster unparalleled in our nation's experience.

    And you would see the end of civilization as we know it, including in these United States. I think that the oil fields in the Middle East would be in flames. The economic repercussions would make the Great Depression look like a Sunday School picnic. I doubt that what is left of our constitutional republic would survive.

    And it would be all for nothing more than a bunch of idiotic, neo-con nonsense about building worldwide American hegemony in the Middle East.

    I wish the Congress would impeach Bush and Cheney and remove them from office immediately. But the Congress doesn't have the guts to do what is best for these United States in this situation.

    Sadly, this Congress has not the cojones to do what should be done.

    And you know what, MP? I watched a lot of the Democratic Party presidential debate last night and between the moderators and several of the Democrats it sounded like it was not truly a question of if these United States should go to war with Iran but how soon these United States should go to war with Iran.

    Yet, no one, NO ONE, has offered one bit of evidence that Iran is even attempting to build a nuclear weapon. NOT ONE BIT OF EVIDENCE!!!!

    To go to war with Iran over NOTHING and destroy western civilization would be INSANE!!!!

    The bold and large letters are in case a Bush administration official happens along. Maybe it will gain their attention and shock some sense into them before it is too late.

    The longer GWB keeps radical Islam on the run, the longer we have till WW3 and/or Armageddon.

    We'll accelerate the downward spiral under the next administration, by utilizing diplomacy, which seems to be the current in vogue word for Democrat's this week, but it will be disastrous. Diplomacy only works with two or more peoples of reason.

    With all due respect hillclimber, you are completely wrong.

    I feel like I'm reading 1984 in your posts. "War is peace. Freedom is slavery."

    Nicest refute I've received, but I stand by my statements.

    All of that is in scripture. Doesn't sound like fun, but it sure sounds like it's on it's way. Christians in America have had it awful good, for a long time. I can't say I feel like it's deserved. Maybe at one time it was.

    Several other nations are planning similar events, as we speak. For some, it's about support of the only democracy in the mideast.

    I wish people would get as sick of head-choppin', baby killin', funeral bombing muslims as they are of Bush.

    It is in your interpretation of The Scriptures.

    Well, yeah. A lot of others, as well.

    But it is getting harder & harder to deny it's happening, ain't it ?

    Not really. Mankind has been suffering from idiotic decisions by its leaders for thousands of years. There is no reason to attribute such to one particular school's method of interpreting the Bible, especially in the area of eschatology.

    I'm talking about the world rising up against Israel, and I think you know that. I also know you don't like to talk about it.

    But it's happening. Along with rumors of war, floods in diverse places, famine & drought in others, market troubles, good being called evil, any bible-drilled Christian has to see scripture well on it's way to fruition.

    Or you can just write it off as my intrpretation, and blame the neocons for all the world's troubles.
