Helping Israel Die
by Ray McGovern
President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick
Cheney are unwittingly playing Dr. Jack Kevorkian in helping the state of
Israel commit suicide. For this is the inevitable consequence of the
planned air and missile attack on Iran. The pockmarked, littered landscape
in Iraq, Lebanon and Afghanistan and the endless applicant queues at
al-Qaeda and other terrorist recruiting stations testify eloquently to the
unintended consequences of myopic policymakers in Washington and Tel Aviv.

US preparations for an air strike against
Iran are at an advanced stage, in spite of repeated public denials by the
Bush administration, according to informed sources in Washington.

By Robert Parry
Friday 02 February 2007
George W. Bush is again guiding the nation toward a preemptive war -
this time with
Iran - without allowing anything like a full debate of the underlying

US allies as Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates all warned of

another. The entire world knows this and is discussing Bush's
attack on Iran in many forums. It is only Americans who haven't

wide awareness that Iran is in the Bush Regime's cross hairs. But
Congress and the Media -- and the demonstration in

President Bush is preparing to attack Iran's nuclear facilities
before the end of April and the US Air Force's new bases in
Bulgaria and Romania would be used as back-up in the onslaught,
according to an official report from
"American forces could be using their two USAF bases in Bulgaria
and one at Romania's Black Sea coast to launch an attack on Iran
in April," the Bulgarian news agency Novinite said.
The Edge of the Abyss

on a limb now that he must go for it all or he loses everything.

They have nothing to lose and everything to gain. If the U.S.

The war begins

discussed openly in Washington. What they are debating is the
prospect of other Hiroshimas and of radioactive fallout across

nuclear weapons delivery missions... since last summer".

Pravda's view of the American "nightmare"
Presidential spokesman Tony Snow said resolutions passed by
Congress will not affect Bush's decision-making. "The president
has obligations as a commander in chief," he said. "And he will
go ahead and execute them."
Russian Intelligence Analysts in these reports to President Putin
have asked, "If President Bush feels that he is not constrained
either the elected representatives of the American people, or the
American people themselves, we must then consider that he, and
his Administration, have become powers unto themselves and that
the United States should therefore be considered a dictatorship,
not a democracy."
To the American people themselves, they remain in abject denial
of the dark Fascist forces descending around them; but soon, and
much sooner than they could believe, and with their families and
neighbors disappearing into the vast American Gulag, what they
once believed in as the American Dream, will soon be shown for
what it really is, an American Nightmare.
