During yesterday’s Special Report, FOX News aired two segments that indicate the the Bush administration has basically crossed a psychological line and is now actively working towards dropping a 30,000 lb. bunker buster bomb on the Natanz nuclear facility in Iran. Natanz is a short distance from Kashan a town that has a population of somewhere around 50,000 people. In the first segment Brit Hume rehashed the news that the Bush administration had just taken the unprecedented step of declaring the military force of a sovereign nation to be a terrorist organization. As many on the left (and some on the right) predicted when the Lieberman amendment was recently passed by the Senate, Bush now has the authority he needs to unilaterally attack Iran without Congressional approval. The Democratic leadership is still asleep at the wheel! With videos.
Despite the vigorous opposition of Sen, Chris Dodd (D-CT) and Congressmen Bill Delahunt (D-MA), Walter Jones (R-NC) and Ron Paul (R-TX), Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has chosen to believe the White House, saying “The President has assured me that his approach to Iran is going to be just that, with robust diplomacy and sanctions. I don’t see these sanctions as a predicate for more aggressive action.”
Pelosi obviously still believes that the country is being run by sane people. It is not. It is being run by abject failures with enormous egos who will take us all down in flames rather than admit they made one of the most colossal blunders in history.
Economic sanctions against Iran – which do not have and will not get the approval of Russia, China and most of our European allies – are merely a pretext, a trumped-up reason to allow George Bush to pull the trigger on Iran – or to give the green light to Israel to do his dirty work.
Never discussed on FOX News is the buried story that, as of last week, Iran is no longer accepting dollars in payment for its oil. This is one of many factors contributing to the downward spiral in the value of the American currency. This coming November the report of the IAEA is due regarding the alleged Syrian “nuclear facility” that Israel blew up on September 6, 2007. If that report shows conclusively that Israel bombed an empty building, it will knock out one of the linchpins for the Bush hypothesis that Iran is working with Syria and others to secretly acquire nuclear weapons.
Please contact Speak of the House Pelosi and let her know that the President cannot be believed on this (or any other) subject. Congress must act quickly and decisively to rein in the out-of-control foreign policy of Bush and Cheney.
If the United States bombs Iran (and the panelists on FOX News’ Special Report certainly believe this is what Bush is planning), many people will die. Some of those will be workers trapped miles under desert sands, but many others will be the civilians who live in Kashan, a city of about 50,000 people that lies nearby. If the bunker buster has a nuclear warhead, those unfortunates – and a lot of other innocents in the Middle East – will die a horrible death from the radioactive sand that will be spewed into the air.
Radioactive sand is not concerned about one’s religion, ethnicity, heritage, skin color, sexual preferences, ego or intelligence level.
Cancer and it’s twin Death are equal opportunity destroyers, something Fred Barnes, Brit Hume and Mort Kondracke should think about before laughing about bombing another country! (See second video below.)
