What if we actually attacked Iran? 

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.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
