In the September strike, Israeli bombers were likely targeting a nuclear reactor under construction, parts of which are alleged to have come from North Korea. It is possible that key secretaries in the Bush cabinet even tried to stop Israel. To this day, the administration has neither confirmed nor commented on the attack.
Nevertheless, in Washington, Israel's strike against Syria has revived the specter of war with Iran. For the neoconservatives it could represent a glimmer of hope that the grandiose dream of a democratic Middle East has not yet been buried in the ashes of Iraq. But for realists in the corridors of the State Department and the Pentagon, military action against Iran is a nightmare they have sought to avert by asking a simple question: "What then?"
The Israeli strike, or something like it, could easily mark the beginning of the "World War III," which President Bush warned against last week. With his usual apocalyptic rhetoric, he said Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad could lead the region to a new world war if his nation builds a nuclear bomb.
With that statement, all is made clear, the war on Terra will continue for quite some time.
The Military Industrial Complex is depending on it.
We have military corporatistas gone wild setting the rules of the game, providing the tools, and throwing humans into the mix to glean the most money possible out of an ever shrinking dollar.
Not worth the paper it is printed on, the American equivalent of the Peso, the dollar is slowly and deliberately being drained into the corporate coffers and away from the American people to finance the very best best bombs money can buy.
But what if we don't want to play "War"?
Sorry, that's NOT an option.
