Forget whatever else you’re worried about, locally. Forget Maggie’s fast one, forget school superintendent searches. Sy Hersh is reporting that, as many of us suspected for years, the president and the White House are moving in the direction of an open war with Iran. They’re working up the talking points and planning excuses to make this happen. What’s more, it’s not just the Administration of this country, this time. Sy seems to have it on good authority that France and Great Brittan are as interested in this as anybody, this time around:
Sy Hersh joined CNN’s Late Edition and discussed his new article out in the NewYorker: “Shifting Targets,” which says that the WH has a new talking point which it will sell attacking Iran and as usual, our media will lap it up. The CIA has created an Iran Study Group with dozens of new members with the goal of launching a strike against Iran, including ground forces. Bush feels that using the nuclear threat as the reason to bomb Iran has failed miserably, so they switched talking points and are going to say they are defending themselves against Iranian meddling in Iraq. We told you so….
Mr. Hersh is a fairly reliable journalist, more or less the only such journalist allowed to practice his profession these days.
Can we allow this to happen? Can we count on Democrats to do anything about it? Just so we’re on the same page, Iran and Russia have been staunch allies for a long time and there are billions of dollars of outstanding debts between them. Use your imagination and see where that might lead us. This is not a joke, this is a problem.
