With the Bush administration taking increasingly provocative actions toward Iran, like the deployment of aircraft carriers to the Gulf, the arrest of Iranian representatives in Iraq, and the sharp escalation in bellicose rhetoric, it seems clear that they're at least considering a military strike. Here's an idea that might help deter it.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA)

Tuesday, February 13, 2007

Mr. Speaker:

I proudly stand today with fellow veterans as the House debates the most damaging, costly, and divisive course of U.S. military involvement since Vietnam.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,  

Just because the Supreme Court of this nation put the "A" students in the corner of the class and brought the one wearing the "dunce hat" to the front as a leader, doesn't mean that the rest of us have to follow like sheep. The Supreme Court should be impeached or put in a corner and just not used.  

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

We already knew that Scooter Libby's defense for perjury is that he simply mixed up the facts over exactly when and how he learned the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame. But testimony today from John Hannah, the vice president's national security adviser, goes far beyond that assessment. The entire purpose of Hannah's testimony was to paint Libby as a bumbling idiot plagued with what amounts to chronic amnesia.

Without bothering to tell us, U.S. policymakers have changed our military grand strategy. The battle plan of the Cold War years was Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD). That's all been modernized. Our national security state's new strategy is Guaranteed Serious Pandemonium (GASP).

A word of caution on U.S. "evidence" that Iran is providing armor-piercing weapons to Iraqis.

If reporters could all stop the heavy breathing for a moment, they might ask the folks at the White House and in the Pentagon to explain why those bombs that they displayed as "evidence" of Iranian perfidy had English words and numbers on them, instead of Persian.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

As we are finding out from the "Scooter" trial, there was a conspiracy and it wasn't a theory. "Also identifying Richard Armitage as a source of his information about Valerie Plame Wilson is Robert Novak, the columnist who first, essentially, told the world that Wilson's wife worked at the CIA in this famous column that ran on July 14th of 2003. Novak also saying that Karl Rove was one of his sources." The Bush administration collaborated and did their very best to discredit Joe Wilson and in the process they outed his wife Valerie Plame, a covert CIA agent! One could say in the aftermath, there was an attempted cover up, and that is also criminal!!! They should all be "frogmarched in handcuffs out of the WhiteHouse" to jail!
