Ranger Jim's definition of COIN:
Where cultures meet over rifle sights.

The headlines tell the sorry tale, "US accuses Iran and Syria of trying to destabilize Iraq."

Hmmm. . .and what is it the U.S. is doing in Iraq? Is it not interference and destabilization on a stellar scale? Matters not that the U.S. has packaged it as a humanitarian effort. As Enid Strict, The Church Lady, might say -- how convenient!

First we invade Iraq in a war of aggression, totally destroying its infrastructure, then occupy it. From this mess we are calling democracy in action the U.S. has the temerity to cast aspersions on Iran.

It is illogical and insane for the U.S. to contemplate a military response to Iran when it is obvious the U.S. is strained maintaining its present two war fronts. Yet Admiral Michael Mullen, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff, says he could call up his reserves and the U.S. could open a third front (CIA Director says Iran wants to kill Americans in Iraq.) And what would that leave to protect the U.S. from an unforseen threat?

An attack upon Iran would be as rational an act as that of a suicide bomber. The average U.S. citizen will not benefit in any manner from an attack on Iran, other than gaining another worrisome distraction to divert their attention from the skyrocketing cost of milk and oil.

Let us hope Congress will clip George Bush and Co.'s wings this time around.

Oil has gone up about $90/barrel since GWB came to power. That's a ton of money he's made for his oil buddies. Bombing Iran will be the icing on the cake. It should push oil prices up close to $200/barrel. And the boys building the bombs and planes will be real happy too as they'll be getting more of our tax money.

MB, it's my assessment that GWB is indeed planning an atk on Iran PRIOR to his leaving office.THIS NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED BY CONGRESS BEFORE IT HAPPENS.
WW2 in Europe started because Hitler preemptively invaded Poland and misjudged the allies intention to widen the little local war. Same same is potential in Iran action.
Most idiots tell me that we'll farm this out to the Isrealis and we won't have a problem as a result. NOT.!
