Broad Attack

From Yahoo:
U.S. contingency planning for military action against
Iran's nuclear program goes beyond limited strikes and would effectively unleash a war against the country, a former U.S. intelligence analyst said on Friday.

"I've seen some of the planning ... You're not talking about a surgical strike," said Wayne White, who was a top Middle East analyst for the State Department's bureau of intelligence and research until March 2005.

"You're talking about a war against Iran" that likely would destabilize the Middle East for years, White told the Middle East Policy Council, a Washington think tank.

This just as The New York Times reports:
Iran's outspoken president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, appears to be under pressure from the highest authorities in Iran to end his involvement in its nuclear program, a sign that his political capital is declining as his country comes under increasing international pressure.

Nice work, Presidente.

But, you say, the White House claims "President George W. Bush has stressed he is seeking a diplomatic solution to the dispute over Iran's nuclear program."

Just like he did before the catastrophic Iraq War? With this one poised to be potentially much, much worse for our country?

I don't know how many times I have to say it on this blog, but I'll repeat it for the next two years:

Every time he opens his mouth, he lies.
