Rolling out new product?
Barnett Rubin at the Informed Comment Global Affairs blog has a post, based on what he says is an "excellent" connection in Washington that, indeed, Iran's on the buffet menu for the Pentagon:
Today I received a message from a friend who has excellent connections in Washington and whose information has often been prescient. According to this report, as in 2002, the rollout will start after Labor Day, with a big kickoff on September 11.
Oh, isn't that nice. September 11th gets used once again by these amoral ghouls as justification for more killing of brown people. "Remember how horrible that day was? REMEMBER!?!? Well, you wouldn't WANT THAT AGAIN, WOULD YOU?"
His friend's comments:
They [the source's institution] have "instructions" (yes, that was the word used) from the Office of the Vice-President to roll out a campaign for war with Iran in the week after Labor Day; it will be coordinated with the American Enterprise Institute, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, Commentary, Fox, and the usual suspects. It will be heavy sustained assault on the airwaves, designed to knock public sentiment into a position from which a war can be maintained. Evidently they don't think they'll ever get majority support for this--they want something like 35-40 percent support, which in their book is "plenty."
Well, FAUX News is already with the program, as I pointed out last week. We'll see what the rest of the conservative media comes up with over the next couple weeks.
