Oh, we're going to war
Shotgun Dick Cheney:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Vice President Dick Cheney said Tuesday that Iran will not be allowed to have a nuclear weapon and warned "the United States is keeping all options on the table in addressing the irresponsible conduct of the regime."
Cheney said the Iranian government "continues to defy the world with its nuclear ambitions" and that the issue may soon go before the U.N. Security Council.
"The Iranian regime needs to know that if it stays on its present course, the international community is prepared to impose meaningful consequences," Cheney said in a speech to the to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, an influential pro-Israel lobbying group.
Welp, if that sounds to you an awful lot like what was said in the run-up to Iraq, well then, it's not just me. I think, god forbid, they've found something even stupider than invading Iraq, something more irresponsible than ignoring warnings of 9/11, and something more contemptuous of human life than partyin' it up while people drowned in New Orleans. Which means, of course, it's a done deal.
(Oh, and don't mention the double standard of allowing India and Pakistan to have nuclear weapons while Iran isn't, mmnkay?)
