Next Stop......Tehran?

From Newsweek:
At least one former White House official contends that some Bush advisers secretly want an excuse to attack Iran. “They intend to be as provocative as possible and make the Iranians do something [America] would be forced to retaliate for,” says Hillary Mann, the administration’s former National Security Council director for Iran and Persian Gulf Affairs. …

A second Navy carrier group is steaming toward the Persian Gulf, and NEWSWEEK has learned that a third carrier will likely follow. Iran shot off a few missiles in those same tense waters last week, in a highly publicized test. With Americans and Iranians jousting on the chaotic battleground of Iraq, the chances of a small incident’s spiraling into a crisis are higher than they’ve been in years.
Afghanistan. Iraq. And soon Iran.

Why can't these Neocons at least WIN (or admit defeat in) the first war before moving on to the second? Like the spoiled boy he is, Bush makes messes and then leaves them for others to clean up.

And the lies are beginning to appear in the press - hints of Iran 's involvement in Iraq, stories about nuclear weaponry, all attributed to nameless government sources. All while the IAEA states that Iran is ten years away from developing a nuclear weapon, and the Saudis have been shown to be funding the Sunni insurgency to the tune of millions of dollars.

WMDs, terrorism, fight them over there so we won't have to fight them over there : It's deja vu all over again!
