It's the end of the world as we know it...

Politics, philosophy, the law, current events, left leaning debates, religion, baseball, football, pop culture, growing up Greek, random events in my life...whatever hits my mind at the time.

Iran

There aren't enough deathbed confessions, don't you think?

And at least SOMEONE is concerned with the weak dollar. Because our administration surely isn't. That generally isn't an indicator that your economy is doing well.

And how the hell are we going to attack ANOTHER country? Seriously. Our troops are already overextended.

In an eerie repetition of the prelude to the Iraq war, hawks in the administration and Congress are trumpeting ominous disclosures about Iran's nuclear capacities to make the case that Iran is a threat that must be confronted, either by economic sanctions, military action, or "regime change."
* * * *
But an administration official said that a military strike or sabotage was not out of the question - "you never take the military option off the table," he said - and that in any case it was "money in the bank" for Iran to be concerned about such an option, because it might be goaded into a more conciliatory approach to the United States.


If we have the draft reinstated, I want everyone who voted for Bush to be drafted first.

    If only Bush supporters would be drafted first...
    I had lunch yesterday with two right wingers. Both thought the idea of a draft was crazy, one even bet me there would not be a draft before the next election. One has a 19 yr.old son,and said he would gladly give him up to a draft, if we "needed to fight another war". I think the combination of Faux News, other right wing mouth pieces, and tv violence have de-sensitized alot of righties to the horrors of war. When a draft hits and all the upper middles have to send their boys AND girls off to fight Bush's battles, alot of attitudea are likely to change. Unfortunately, those of us on this side of the spectrum will be affected as well.

    This rhetoric looks frighteningly similiar to 2002 and Iraq.

    If the draft is reinstated, I will have to join the army. I don't know how I would make it happen - giving up the house, the cats, the job, everything. But I have to go. I can't let other people be forced into war against their will, and not stand alongside them.
