We haven't heard much about Iran lately, at least compared to the scare headlines of a few months ago, when rumors of war were swirling fast and furious. The Russian "threat" seems to have replaced the Iranian "threat" as the War Party's bogeyman of choice. What we didn't know, however, is that the two focal points are intimately related.
Saakashvili, a vain and reckless man, now has even more reason to go behind Uncle Sam's back and give the Israelis a clear shot at Tehran. With this sword of Damocles hanging over the heads of the Americans, the rationale for a more limited, shot-across-the-bow strike by the U.S. becomes all too clear.
If this is true, and Mc Cain's chances look bad for the November election, this may very well be the scenario which plays out concerning Iran.
War with Russia, anyone??? Russia will not allow an attack on Iran to happen without severe repercussions for both Israel and the US.
Of course, folks like Dick Cheney aren't concerned: they've got their bunkers, their medical help, and food for themselves and their families. Should such an event take place, the rest of the nation will simply be left on its own.
