It would be awful. Even while reading Seymour Hersh's piece
in this week's New Yorker, I didn't really think about the implications of attacking Iran. But this post
by Publius (and Billmon's post
that Publius linked to) has convinced me that we (anyone who cares about: (a) America, (b) the world, or (c) America's place in the world) have to oppose Messianic Bush with all of our power. Really.
I don't actually know how to stop this Administration though. I mean, c'mon, there aren't a lot of checks on a lame duck President's power to start an (undeclared) war. But we have to try, otherwise we're going to be the suckers and dupes who let this mendacious-on-an-unbelievable-scale Administration start not one but two ruinous wars (NB: we may not be meeting all of our strategic goals in Afghanistan, but it hasn't been a total failure).
God save us.
