Admiral Fallon’s abrupt resignation sent shock wave signals through the world, signalling that even the military was concerned about Cheney/Bush’s intention to escalate the war into Iran.
“Across the officer corps, a large number of senior military leaders share Admiral Fallon’s broad assessment that a war with Iran would bring unexpected and, perhaps, unmanageable, risks elsewhere in the Muslim world and around the globe.” In other words, to quote Ron Paul: ‘blowback.’
Even the surge, using our military as a police force (illegally, and unconstitutionally) in Iraq is dangerous and certainly not in the best interests of America:
“Adm. Fallon had favored a significant withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, arguing that the open-ended deployment of 140,000 military personnel there was causing growing manpower strains throughout the armed forces.”
There are more dreadful effects of this mess. The ‘religious war’ has taken hold of the Middle East, and innocent people are suffering and dying because of it. Yes, we SAY it isn’t a ‘religious war’ but there is no other way for the victims of this war to understand it. It was illegal in the first place. In the second place, we HAVE their oil, yet we still continue aggression, and it is obvious that our administration intends to expand it to Iran and elsewhere. What other explanation can they find?
Thanks to the Clinton Administration, who have enriched our enemies with our best technology and weapons, one simple action tied two very dangerous countries together in opposition to us, BEFORE 9/11 and Bush’s war decision. Ensuing policies have only strengthened this relationship between China and Russia, who have allied themselves with Iran.
War with Iran IS war with China and Russia. Global war. WWIII.
McCain is Bush and Bush policies with a bad, VERY BAD, face-lift.
Ron Paul is the ONLY CHOICE for global peace.
