Jug's Moron Ploy

Okay, it's now pretty obvious how Jug-Ears is going to attack Iran without even the usual fig-leaf of Congressional approval. The captive media are already ratcheting up their hollering about evil wicked "Iranian agents" who are allegedly causing all the trouble in Iraq, Glenn Beck is shrieking for war on Iran now now now, and Bush is doing things like arresting and murdering Iranian diplomatic personnel and businessmen, etc. in the hopes that he will be able to provoke a response from Tehran he can use as an excuse to send the bombers.

For years, of course, Mini-Me has claimed that all the trouble in Iraq comes from "foreign fighters" and not the Iraqi people themselves resisting a foreign invader, oh no no no no no that will never do, the Iraqis of course all want to be like us, ruled by corrupt men in business suits and with a Starbucks and a McDonalds on every corner. It is unthinkable that the Iraqis might resist the wonderful forces of democracy, no no no it must be those wicked and evil "foreign fighters." Yadda yadda yadda.

Nobody ever took this "foreign fighter" bullshit seriously, nor I suspect was it ever intended to be taken seriously, just something some White House flack had to babble at press conferences as part of the regime's overall policy of obscuring and obfuscating the painful truth that George W. Bush is a moron. But now Bush is going to use the "foreign fighter" crapola as an excuse to attack Iran and Syria and any other country he wants under cover of that 2002 or 2003 Congressional resolution on Iraq. In a stunning and probably successful insult to the intelligence of the Congress and the world, Jug will claim that he already has Congressional approval for an assault and possibly an invasion to seize the Iranian oil fields. (American presidents no longer even ask Congress for a declaration of war any more, just a resolution admitting that the president is going to do whatever the hell he's already decided he's going to do.)

Jug will get away with it, of course, since the Democrats have all the spine of a strand of overcooked spaghetti. One of the reason democracy no longer works is because a two-party system implies that one party must be in opposition, as in actually opposing what the government does, and we haven't really had one of those since the Civil War, when to give them due credit some Northerners actually did oppose Lincoln, to the point where he violated the Constitution and locked them up. (This starting to ring any bells here?)

My guess: Jug-Ears will attack Iran in early summer, just in time to send gas prices soaring into the stratosphere and screw up everybody's summer vacation. Will anyone do anything about him? No. That would require courage, something Americans no longer possess.
