Some Positive Signs From the Right...And Then a Few Words on Dick Cheney
It seems as if the Paleocons are coming to realize that the Neocons are bad for America. The likes of Pat Buchanan and Paul Craig Roberts (former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under President Reagan) have joined with some in the middle in openly ripping apart the Neocon agenda. Take a look at the Neoconwatch blog. There you will find an assortment of people who are openly discussing the lies and war crimes committed by the Neocons.
The world has changed so much in the past five years, that Pat Buchanan is starting to look like a moderate! And Paul Craig Roberts, listed by Who’s Who in America as one of the 1,000 most influential political thinkers in the world, has evolved into a major Bush critic. As he says, he hasn't abandoned the Republican party, he "just can’t respect a party leadership who doesn’t respect the truth."
Some of the posters on Neoconwatch also believe, as I do, that the Bush administration was responsible for 9/11. Its nice to see people coming around. BUt wait.....
CHENEY ALERT! CHENEY ALERT!
If you haven't heard, The American Conservative reported in its print edition that:
"The Pentagon, acting under instructions from Vice President Dick Cheney's office, has tasked the United States Strategic Command (STRATCOM) with drawing up a contingency plan to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States. The plan includes a large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons. Within Iran there are more than 450 major strategic targets, including numerous suspected nuclear-weapons-program development sites. Many of the targets are hardened or are deep underground and could not be taken out by conventional weapons, hence the nuclear option."Check out this article by the American Free Press.
Isn't it strange that Cheney is preparing a nuclear attack against Iran and Iran hasn't even done anything? Oh wait, wasn't there a plan for invading Afghanistan already on George W. Bush's table prior 9/11? Perhaps its time to cue the next "terrorist" attack?
With Bush in Crawford, Congress on vacation, and Cheney running the show, what better time for Cheney to work his magic?
