Scary Enuff - Update: US to Bomb Iran?

Not to go all chicken little... but this morning there is more confirmation that an American aircraft carrier task force is heading to the Persian Gulf -- where it will be in position to bomb Iran.

Again, "bombs away" is a doom-baiting scenario that is being raised by serious commentators such as the New Yorker's Seymour Hersh (he's written already; a further new piece is upcoming), Gary Hart and Chris Hedges.

So what gives?

Have you asked your man or woman in Congress what's going on?

If these maniacs in the White House pull the trigger, it's nightmare time on pretty much all fronts.

And with these people, I for one do not put it past them.

This is an administration, and a governing party, that wants war. As politics and as policy.
