It was only a week ago when I talked about Blair’s Iranian Dilemma – a situation he got himself into. I predicted that supporting a US strike would abruptly end his career. I still stand by that, but Tony has chosen to save himself
“Tony Blair has told George Bush that Britain cannot offer military support to any strike on Iran, regardless of whether the move wins the backing of the international community, government sources claimed yesterday.”
Now Bush has no international allies or friends left. None. Is Bush insane enough to attack Iran? Sure. But with public opinion so opposed to it, he may be forced not to. That’s what will stop him, the people. Congress sure won’t. Democrats should be screaming opposition to Bush’s insane plans but instead, as usual, they’re squeaking about how they just need stay quiet and then they might win big in November. That Iran and the Middle East could be a conflagration concerns them little, just that their party wins. What a pathetic, gutless, amoral party the Democrats have become.
PS Here’s why doing nothing and hoping for victory in November is a dumb strategy.
In California, Schwarzenegger has just moved ahead in the polls against two Democratic challengers, no doubt helped by the challengers doing little to nothing to differentiate themselves from him, much less launching a serious attack. Arnold was road kill a few months ago. Now he’s polling higher thanÃ‚Â the do-nothing Democrats.
