Pre-Election Plans to Attack Iran

This week, Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard insinuated that President Bush might launch an attack against Iran should Barack Obama be poised to win the presidency.

Re: Pre-Election Plans to Attack Iran

Here's an article I found on it.

John Bolton, the former American ambassador to the United Nations, has predicted that Israel could attack Iran after the November presidential election but before George W Bush's successor is sworn in.

Re: Pre-Election Plans to Attack Iran

I've heard and read reports that Dubya would attack Iran in the summer. I think it would really deepen resentment towards him.

After these past 7 years I wouldn't put anything past Dubya ... including creating a mess for the next President.

I'm beginning to question this "War on Terror" we've been waging ... but that's a whole 'nother thread.

Re: Pre-Election Plans to Attack Iran

I think the republican thinking is that America will vote conservative during wartime so Bush is timing the attack on Iran to influence the election.

Re: Pre-Election Plans to Attack Iran

It's all silly speculation.

I remember in 2004, people were saying that maybe Bush knew where Osama Bin Laden was, and he was going to capture him right before the elections, to make himself look good in and improve his chances to defeat John Kerry. Now looking back at that we see it for what it was -- just idle election-year speculation.

Are you beginning to question it because we haven't had a terrorist attack on these shores in 7 yrs.??

If that's the reason then there really is no reason to question something that's working, right??

While I believe John Bolton's theory is more accurate, I think everyone ought to read this article. Not because it tells you who nasty "Neoconservitives" are but because it gives a glimps into the mind of a moronic liberal whacko.

here is a quote for you
"The problem with the Islamic Republic of Iran is not its nuclear potential; or its already vast missile arsenal, or its support for anti-Israeli terrorist groups. Those are all symptoms of a greater ill. The real problem with the Islamic Republic is its isolation. And that is something that we, as Americans, have the power to change virtually overnight. "
this idiot thinks the answer to the problem in Iran isnt the radicals in control of its government. The answer is, America needs to be nice to them and become their friend.

Great question, and great point.
I guess if we'd been hit by a few more terrorist attacks after 9/11, nobody would be questioning the war on terror. But of course if we had been hit again, most of these same people would find fault with President Bush for not keeping America safe. Such irony.

I love it! Btw, many Arabs are happy that Isreal is going to destroy Iran's nuke capabilities, even if they do not publickly say so.
