Mission Iran?

August 24, 2007

According to John Bolton, Yes. In fact, he “absolutely hopes” we strike Iran within the next six months. I respect John Bolton immensely and I most often agree with him. However, call me crazy, but isn’t the timing a bit disconcerting? Aren’t we stretched a wee bit thin as it is? Militarily?

I also don’t see any conceivable way for President Bush to get any support whatsoever to authorize such a military strike. He’s little, if any, political capital left and the public is in no way going to support another military action. The majority want us out of the present War as it is.

However, it seems to me that it is pretty clear that Iran IS involved militarily already. They are, no matter how hard Keith Olberman and his ilk try to spin otherwise, involved in Iraq and they ARE killing American and coalition forces.

But, I’m no expert. And perhaps wary only out of selfish fear. The World scares me of late.

Which makes me ever so grateful, as always, for the brave men and women around the World fighting for our freedoms, our safety and our very lives. Brave men and women, all.

    I am torn on this Iran issue, logisticly I don’t see how it could be done with any long term benefiets. But there are good arguments for making the attempt, if we are to believe Bush’s assessment, which isn’t always easy to do these days. But then again, the thought of putting more of our service men and women into situations where lives will be lost is bothersome as well. And the increase in American distrust and hatred we create in the rest of the world, potentially creating more enemies who want to take us down. There are no easy answers.
