suprising non-surprise-surprise!

Dave Lindorff has a sobering read at This Can’t Be Happening!
Lindorff, who reported in The Nation last month that the nuke-powered aircraft carrier USS Eisenhower would be heading for the Persian Gulf for the anticipated Iran War (it sailed last Monday with “its accompanying strike force of cruiser, destroyer and attack submarine[s]”), makes the case that this is indeed the October surprise “with a resulting skyrocketing of global oil prices, the real goal of this new war by the U.S. would be ensuring Republican control of the House and Senate.”

"What is deeply troubling here is the total silence on the part of the Democratic Party opposition. Not one Democrat in Congress, and as far as I know, not one Democratic candidate for Congress--not even anti-war insurgent Ned Lamont in Connecticut, has demanded an answer from Bush and the Pentagon for the obvious military buildup around Iran, or about published reports that the U.S. already has special forces in side Iran backing the terrorist organization MEK, and selecting targets for U.S. bombardment."

What makes this even more disturbing is that, although anyone with two brain cells has seen this exact scenario coming for many moons, there is a near TOTAL media blackout on this subject.
Iraq and Afganistan continue to invent new circles of hell to descend into.
Yet, all news channels continue to yammer on about Foley and how the Dems will conquer both houses of Congress in four weeks. (Oh yeah, and sanctions.)
SO, now that you’ve heard all the salacious details, read the dirty emails, heard the speaker’s lame excuses and seen him hung out to dry and had a good, hearty laugh:
W A K E U P !!!
Georrge is starting a THIRD, MORE DISASTEROUS WAR and nobody is taking any bloody notice.
Even Speaker Pelosi and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rangel ain’t gonna be able to do shit about it come January.
Have a lovely day.
