One aspect I found disturbing about the President's speech today was that he specifically linked Ahmedinejad as ordering the Quds force to ship weaponry to the Shi'ites in Iraq, when everyone knows Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamanei controls Quds. Why did he do this? Of course, it's easier for Bush to sow fear and confusion when it comes to Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, professional Holocaust denier and Israel hater. All red-blooded Americans want to bomb him, right? Who could oppose that? He's an evil man just like Saddam Hussein and the world will be a better place without him in it . . .
It's obvious that from the White House perspective, it's full steam ahead, despite the doublespeak of blaming AND disavowing the Iranian government simultaneously. The same scripts, just the names have been changed. And we've seen how well it's worked in Afghanistan and Iraq. This is all too surreal for me. What can we do to stop this?
