As the war
in Iraq drags on into a fourth brutal year, the same politicians who led
the U.S. to war in 2003 are preparing for a new war --this time against
the people of Iran.
Once again using the pretext of "weapons of mass destruction," the U.S.
is moving the forces into place in preparation for a possible attack.
The USS Eisenhower strike force, with some 800 Tomahawk cruise missiles
and a fleet of bombers, has moved into the Persian Gulf. A second carrier
group, led by the USS Stennis, is now steaming toward the region.
The London Telegraph reported this spring that "a major
American attack on Iran's nuclear sites would kill up to 10,000 people
and lead to war in the Middle East."
