MidEasT: Iran War/Sanctions/UN OIC

OK. I think I understand. BUSH isn't QUITE as stupid as I presumed.

It seems that he is attempting to use the UN (and that temporary ambassador John (abolish the UN) Bolton he appointed last Summer.

Seems like he is pushing heavy for UN to sanction Iran for not obeying the NucK-Lee-uah
ban of the UN.

And then they will hope that they can convince the USSR and China to go ALONG with sanctions, and any other actions NECESSARY to support the sanctions.

(which I would read, to include a MILITARY force to INVADE iran! and ENFORCE the sanctions!)

And remember. If he invades or gets a BLOCKADE declared it will be in LATE september, or Early October, as David Brin says,

Think. These people {the Military} represent our only hope of preventing Rove & co. from pulling some kind of hellacious "October Surprise" in late 2006, and again in 2008. Some nasty event that might frighten the voters silly, turning their eyes away from all the scandals of theft, incompetence and betrayal, prodding the terrified to instead rally around “our national leadership.”

Oh, and in the same post, Brin argues that Bush in contention for worst president of all time!

Snipped ...
“Now, though, George W. Bush is in serious contention for the title of worst ever. In early 2004, an informal survey of 415 historians conducted by the nonpartisan History News Network found that eighty-one percent considered the Bush administration a "failure." Among those who called Bush a success, many gave the president high marks only for his ability to mobilize public support and get Congress to go along with what one historian called the administration's "pursuit of disastrous policies."


SO: prepare for UN led GROUP invasion of IRAN!
