Decade-long Neoconservative plot to take the US to war against Iran foiled

In 2003, the Neocon chickenhawks, most of whom had never worn a uniform or had a parent who did, joked that “everyone wants to go to Baghdad; real men want to go to Tehran.” When people have to talk about being “real men,” it is a pretty good sign that they are 98-pound weaklings.

..........

All through the Cheney-Bush administration, repeated leaks from the Pentagon to Sy Hersh and other investigative journalists warned that machinations were afoot to draw the US into a war against Iran, as an outgrowth of the illegal and aggressive attack on and occupation of Iraq. The Neocons plotted against the lives of our children until their last day in office, in January of 2009.

After seeing what Bush did to Iraq, Tehran ramped up its nuclear enrichment program, in hopes of making the point that if the US looked like it might try to invade (which it often looked like), Iran might go for broke and come up with a small nuclear device. In 2003 when Khatami made the peace proposal, Iran had just declared a small set of nuclear experiments. As of 2006, it began serious nuclear enrichment activities, though UN inspectors have never found evidence of a nuclear weapons program.

As Secretary of State John Kerry pointed out Saturday night, if the Bush administration had accepted iran’s 2003 proposal, the rancor, saber-rattling, sanctions and the rapid advances in Iran’s nuclear program could have been avoided.

Obama has supported, continued or expanded almost every policy put in place by his predecessor.(hence the G.W. Obama nickname). This includes, but it not limited to, corporate bailouts, banking industry bailouts, Guantanamo, Afghanistan, supplying weapons to known terrorists (Syrian rebels), extending and expanding the so called Patriot Act, systematic encroachment on Constitutional rights including the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th amendments as evidenced by the expansion of the patriot act and the recent revelations regarding NSA snooping on American citizens phone, email, and internet use records. Let us not for get his efforts to grant amnesty to well over 25 million illegal aliens.
There has been little, if any, change from the previous administration.

And now there has been every attempt to turn yet another 5th century theocracy (Iran) in to a so called ally. Again ignoring all of the human rights violations these societies are guilty of.

Yes, all the US allies like Egypt and Saudi Arabia are democracies that treat all their citizens equally.

And we in the US are superior to all other countries, hence we have the right to dictate to them how to run their countries.

It really bother G.W. Obama supporters that he is a close of his predecessor. Just as greedy, just as arrogant, just as sneaky, just as opaque, the list goes on and on.
