Attack on Iran "imminent," says Justin Raimundo
To my mind the notion of an American attack on Iran is ludicrous. The American army that occupies Iraq has been stretched to breaking point, and there is no sign that the Iraqis are about to accept their status as America's latest puppet state.
On the other hand, Justin Raimundo's latest offering has an inescapable element of logic to it, and I for one couldn't find many holes to pick in the argument.
I think that it all comes down to just how much hubris is left in the American system. They went into Iraq believing with total certainty that the country would fall into their arms with tears of joy running down every Iraqi's face.
Yes, well that was a big mistake, wasn't it? A mistake made all the clearer yesterday when the grave of Saddam Hussein became a place of mourning as hundreds of youngsters turned out to honour his memory.
Are the Americans ready to compound their first act of criminal stupidity with another one? Raimundo says yes.
