The Road To War With Iran Runs Through Iraq
The panel initially focused on destroying Iran's nuclear facilities and on regime change but has more recently been directed to identify targets in Iran that may be involved in supplying or aiding militants in Iraq, according to an Air Force adviser and a Pentagon consultant, who were not identified.
I believe this is confirmation of my view that the road to war with Iran runs through Iraq.
For a number of reasons, the Bush Administration must use Iraq as the excuse for war with Iran. First, Bush has no legal authority to initiate war with Iran. Second, no one believes US intelligence. Finally, the military commanders are opposed to a strike on Iran, so the Bush Administration will need some strong PR to counter this opposition.
My conclusion remains the same, to prevent war with Iran, end the war in Iraq.
