More War?

This has to give one pause. The third carrier mentioned below is the Enterprise and she is already in the Arabian Sea and well with striking distance of Iran and Afghanistan. Bush is playing games with the lives of millions of people and we, as a people, have a duty to do everything we can to stop the insanity. If you haven't called your representatives in Congress then now would be a good time.

Newsweek on “The Hidden War With Iran.

At least one former White House official contends that some Bush advisers secretly want an excuse to attack Iran. “They intend to be as provocative as possible and make the Iranians do something [America] would be forced to retaliate for,” says Hillary Mann, the administration’s former National Security Council director for Iran and Persian Gulf Affairs.

A second Navy carrier group is steaming toward the Persian Gulf, and NEWSWEEK has learned that a third carrier will likely follow. Iran shot off a few missiles in those same tense waters last week, in a highly publicized test. With Americans and Iranians jousting on the chaotic battleground of Iraq, the chances of a small incident’s spiraling into a crisis are higher than they’ve been in years.
