Let's pretend for a moment that I don't find the concept of war repugnant and that I don't mind if the rest of the world bleeds as long as America is fat and happy and drowning in oil -- my question remains: how does this help America? If we're already mired in one quagmire next door to Iran, how can we possibly pull off anything resembling a decisive victory?

I myself am often guilty of starting one job without finishing the last, but my jobs do not consist of wreaking havoc and bombing the hell out of foreign nations. Jeebus H. Criminy, what the hell are these people smoking?

They just don't care what the world, or their own constituency think anymore. These freaks are hell bent on engulfing the entire world into their greedy war for oil. Do we honestly think China, Korea, and Russia are just going to stand aside and watch us destroy an important source of income and oil for them? These people are insane. IMPEACHMENT NOW. Sept 15th. March in Washington, write your congressional leaders, senators, etc. They must be stopped before they destroy our country, and before they can start a conflagration that destroys humanity.

Nope, I'm afraid not. Unless he tries to act without the support of Congress, which he will need, just as he needed it for Iraq, we can't do anything. And fortunately, unless I'm a completely misled, Congress will never approve war in Iran.

Hopefully it will be a lot of sword rattling with no actual result.

DeadEye Dick still pulls Dubya's puppet strings, and I have resigned myself to the fact that nothing is going to change until January 20, 2009. Cheney and Bush should be impeached for their criminal acts now, but it just will not happen with this Congress.

The American people need to become much more proactive in sending a message to our elected officials, that we are reaching a point of no more toleration.

Too many people are still on the "shopping trip" that Bush told us to take, and not really paying attention to everything that has been going on.

David-

The really scary part is, according to the War Powers Act of 1973, the President can invade without Congressional preapproval and then has 60 days to obtain a Congressional Declaration of War.

Knowing this idiot and his view of his own position as Supreme over all other branches, he will simply do what ever Cheney wants.

I've read that he honestly feels that God speaks through him. God is apparently quite hateful.

9/15 people.. It's the principle of the matter at this point. If the decent folk don't stand up, all is indeed lost.. Come out and MARCH!!

OK- we need to get a pissed off blog peeps thing together and figure out where to hook up. Actual organizing- Belle, due to her talent, and just being herself- has a fan base of some pretty amazing people. Let's collect that power! Happy to plan the party if Miss Belle will help me with the WHO- hey I'm a new kid that reaches no one..

But I expect there will be a lot of my fellow citizens out there with me that day- or so I hope.

Bush is so freaking scary.

I had a t-shirt made on cafepress.com that says, "Bush is the new Nixon."

So many people corrected me when I was wearing the t-shirt in the airport (LGA and DFW) that I had to get a new one made that says, "Bush is Worse than Nixon."

Now we need to get out and protest in Washington DC on 9/15.

I hate to say that I am not surprised by this.

I strongly feel that next year will be hell, partly because Bush and Cheney have no conscience to restrain them from acting on base motives of greed, but also because a distraction will be needed once the rewards of the Iraqi Hydrocarbon Law are reaped. Plus, the remaining Republican presidential candidates will require an nationalist issue to circle the wagons around.

There will be increased vague rumors of terror everywhere. There will be ridiculous, sweeping denials repeated loudly at frequent intervals. And Bush will not change his Iraq war strategy even if Lindsey Graham jumps ship.

Someone else illustrated it like this a while back: It's like watching a bad slasher movie for the third time where you know who gets killed, and yelling at the screen seems to make no difference.

Let's hope that September 15 does make that difference.
