Bomb Iran? What's to Stop Us?

Unlike Iraq, which was prostrate after the Gulf War and a dozen years of sanctions, Iran can retaliate in a number of dangerous ways, launching a war for which our forces are ill-prepared, says Ray McGovern.

It’s crazy, but it’s coming soon – from the same folks who brought us Iraq.

Unlike the attack on Iraq five years ago, to deal with Iran there need be no massing of troops. And, with the propaganda buildup already well under way, there need be little, if any, forewarning before shock and awe and pox – in the form of air and missile attacks – begin.

This time it will be largely the Air Force’s show, punctuated by missile and air strikes by the Navy. Israeli-American agreement has now been reached at the highest level; the armed forces planners, plotters and pilots are working out the details.

Emerging from a 90-minute White House meeting with President George W. Bush on June 4, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said the two leaders were of one mind.

It is crazy. If this is true, and such an attack occurs, the terrible consequences for the U.S. will be disastrous.

Bush and Co. have made America the

I pray that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and the other co-conspirators be arrested and tried for treason, war crimes, crimes against humanity and the atrocious waste of the lives of U.S. military in Iraq.

Thanks for your comment.

I agree with everything you said.

Russia and China have already said they would join with Iran against any attacks on Iran.

It will be impossible for the U.S. to get involved in a war with Iran without a military draft.

All the top brass at the Pentagon claim the military is stretched to the breaking point, and war with Iran would mean there is going to have to be a military draft with no deferments for college or anything else.

Everyone goes that is of military age.

We had to have a draft to fight WWII, Korea and Vietnam and it is high time we give our troops a break and reinstate the draft.
