I am just thinking out loud. ;)
How will this Iran scenario play out? It looks like Bush Jr didn't get the kind of enduring support that he was probably looking for after the Iraq war. The polls may show he is still enjoying good ratings, etc., but questions are starting to be raise .... in louder and louder voices, with regards to the reasons for going to war there. And upon reflection, Americans will start to see that Bush has done zilch for the economy. What he has done is to distract the all nation from the reality of their economic woes. Someone had said before , "you can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all the people all of the time".
So, when Bush was finally declared the president after so much wrangling over the votes count back then, did the people elected him to manage their country or did they elected him to conquer the rest of the world?
Is he going to start another war .... with Iran just to keep the support going - and most probably in the name of 'war against terrorism' - so that he may have a chance of being re-elected? Sooner or later the pocketbooks and stomachs of the American people need to be filled. The Economy will still be the major issue for the American people to focus on come 2004. Is another war that will definitely NOT be supported by any other country at all, the right tonic for Bush to take?
I think Iran is safe from an attack. No one will support Bush on any pre-emptive strike. Other than the nuclear issue which they are trying to twist into a 'so-called' menace and possibly the harboring of Al-qaeda, Bush has nothing else to grind against the Iranians. There is no dictator for him to conveniently go after. And the rest of the world is already telling him that you can't go around imposing your Christian (no offence meant here) values to others just because they prefer to differ.
