Will they Bomb without Bolton in the UN?

It is clear the big push to Bomb Iran is on. The Washington Times has three op-eds on Iran today.

The first editorial claims the Iranian elections are a sham. Well, they are not perfect, but there are lots of countries with elections that are as bad or worse, many of whom we claim as allies. Why engage Iran now? Why not allow normal relations and trade to "open up" Iran as we do with China?

The second editorial (written by Nir Boms, an Israeli) calls for strong pressure against Iran's nuclear program. But Nir, isn't North Korea further along with their nuclear program than Iran? Isn't North Korea physically much closer to the US and therefore doesn't it pose a much greater threat to the US? On whose behalf are you demanding action against the Iranian nuclear program?

The third editorial paints the Iranian government as oppressive and wants us to remove the MEK from the terrorist organization list. But there are lots of oppresive governments out there. I am also sure there are many other places where we could help more people using fewer dollars and American lives than Iran.

So, there you have it. Three carefully timed editorials by people who have interests other than yours in mind, and who want to pull you into another conflict in the Mideast.

Just say no to that snake oil.

Ah yes, another war is just what we need to take our minds off Iraq and rally the masses behind our Rogue President, oops I meant our War President.
There's a bonus too, Sharon will have gotten his way - once again.
