Time To Change...
Caught this little blurb on MSNBC's website tonight. It's probably true, but my first assumption is that MSNBC put this out to scare you into thinking someone (hint hint) wants to start another war. Here's the text.
Oct. 4 issue - Deep in the Pentagon, admirals and generals are updating plans for possible U.S. military action in Syria and Iran. The Defense Department unit responsible for military planning for the two troublesome countries is "busier than ever," an administration official says. Some Bush advisers characterize the work as merely an effort to revise routine plans the Pentagon maintains for all contingencies in light of the Iraq war. More skittish bureaucrats say the updates are accompanied by a revived campaign by administration conservatives and neocons for more hard-line U.S. policies toward the countries. (Syria is regarded as a major route for jihadis entering Iraq, and Iran appears to be actively pursuing nuclear weapons.) Even hard-liners acknowledge that given the U.S. military commitment in Iraq, a U.S. attack on either country would be an unlikely last resort; covert action of some kind is the favored route for Washington hard-liners who want regime change in Damascus and Tehran.
If in fact this is true, why would we release it to the press? Simple... there are those that still don't understand that we are not the United States of the 1990s or September 10th, willing to give into false promises of tyrants and dictators. Iran, Syria, and North Korea are now faced with a very simple future. They will either stop destabilizing their regions and supporting terror, or they will be overcome by the biggest use force known on the face of the earth - Freedom. Those in power will cease to exists, and their people will be free at last. It worked with the Germans, Japanese, the Soviet Union, and slowly but surely it's working in Iraq (although the Big Wigs in New York would like you to believe otherwise). Those three countries don't stand a chance, and trust me, at least two of the three will do what Libya did... learn from the mistakes of others and change their ways without single shot fired.
This article may just be friendly reminder to the hundreds of thousands of Iranian conscripts standing on the border 60 miles away from where I am at this moment, as well as the hundreds of Syrians and Iranians that have filtered into Iraq to destabilize the power they fear the most... democracy.
Sorry dudes, it won't work. Time to change.
