Washington intelligence, military and foreign policy circles are abuzz today with speculation that the President, yesterday or in recent days, sent a secret Executive Order to the Secretary of Defense and to the Director of the CIA to launch military operations against Syria and Iran.
The President may have started a new secret, informal war against Syria and Iran without the consent of Congress or any broad discussion with the country.
Some are suggesting that the Consulate raid may have been designed to try and prompt a military response from Iran -- to generate a casus belli for further American action.
If this is the case, the debate about adding four brigades to Iraq is pathetic. The situation will get even hotter than it now is, worsening the American position and exposing the fact that to fight Iran both within the borders of Iraq and into Iranian territory, there are not enough troops in the theatre.
Bush may really have pushed the escalation pedal more than any of us realize.
So far, this is just a rumor, but experience leads me to believe the worst of Bush.
I'm not sure whether he is committing our suicide or our murder, but he is going to get an awful lot more people killed even than he already has. All in vain, for nothing but his own unbalanced vanity.
I'm gonna quit being nice about this: Bush is an evil insane sociopath and must be hauled out of the White House in irons - TODAY.
At the very least, will SecDef and the Brass PLEASE just stop doing what he says? It isn't mutiny, but rather a patriotic duty of the highest order. The motherfucker's CRAZY!
