More war, all the time

The Dr. Strangelove’s in D.C., not satisfied with just two wars (Iraq and Afghanistan),  are planning yet another.

In Washington it is hardly a secret that the same people in and around the administration who brought you Iraq are preparing to do the same for Iran. The Pentagon, acting under instructions from Vice President Dick Cheney’s office, has tasked the United States Strategic Command (STRATCOM) with drawing up a contingency plan to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States.

Note they don’t say Iran has to be involved in such an attack, rather that such an attack would be a convenient pretext for invasion. Just like the Iraq invasion was.

The plan includes a large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons.

Emphasis added.
