"The wealthy, not only by private fraud but also by common laws, do every day pluck and snatch away from the people some part of their daily living. Therefore, when I consider and weigh in my mind these commonwealths which nowadays do flourish, I perceive nothing but a certain conspiracy of rich men in procuring their own commodities under the name and authority of the commonwealth.

They invent and devise all means and crafts, first how to keep safely without fear of losing that which they have unjustly gathered together, and next how to hire and abuse the work and labor of the people for as little money and effort as possible."

Onward Soldiers

So you thought our forces were mired in a quagmire of Team Bush's choosing in Iraq? According to a recent article in the The New Yorker by Seymour Hersh, if "Vice" President Dick Cheney has his way Iran, a nation with three times the population of Iraq and with a viable military infrastructure, is next.

It seems that eventually Iran like North Korea will have thermonuclear weapons. As I've stated previously,nuclear proliferation among third world countries seems to be all but certain. Given the current state of U.S./Middle East relations,I seriously doubt that there is a diplomatic solution. But with the debacle of the Iraqi invasion/occupation we really don't have much of a military option either. It dosen't take a military expert to figure out that in terms of logistics and manpower we are currently unable to attack Iran. A airstrike by bombers or missles will not be sufficent. The Iranians probably have their research and development facilities deep under ground in hardened facilities. The only way to keep the entire world from becoming a giant mushroom cloud is for ALL nations to come to the diplomatic table and bargain in good faith. But unfortunately the hatred,fears,and suspicion of each other are now too great for that to be accomplished. I feel we're looking at the beginning of the end coldtype.
