Iran war coming

Must reading at firedoglake. Bush-Cheny want a war with Iran, and the Democrats have played right into Bush’s hands: Throughout this inexorable march to war, the Democratic Congress has done worse than nothing. They’ve voted for resolutions condemning Iran without having the factual basis for knowing what Iran is doing or intends, relying only on […]
