We Can Only Hope

Filed under: Defending America,Democratic Idiocy,Terrorism — Psycheout @ 3:52 pm

The Jerusalem Post has an article claiming that the United States will finally attack Iran on Good Friday (tomorrow). It would be about time. But I have my doubts that it will actually happen.

The United States will be ready to launch a missile attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities as soon as early this month, perhaps “from 4 a.m. until 4 p.m. on April 6,” according to reports in the Russian media on Saturday.

The Russian media. Consider the source.

According to Russian intelligence sources, the reports said, the US has devised a plan to attack several targets in Iran, and an assault could be carried out by launching missiles from fighter jets and warships stationed in the Persian Gulf.

We can only hope. It would be about time. And the Bush Administration is running out of time.

The Russian Defense Ministry rejected the claims of an imminent attack as “myths.” There was no immediate response from Washington.

Well naturally Washington isn’t going to confirm or deny this story. Nothing is off the table.

And it’s not as if Iran doesn’t deserve a spanking:

Prime Minister Tony Blair says it’s too early to accuse Iran of having involvement in an ambush that killed four British soldiers in southern Iraq today.

The British military says the soldiers and their Kuwaiti interpreter were on patrol in Basra when they were hit first by a roadside bomb, then small-arms fire.

Speaking to reporters as 15 British sailors and marines returned to England after nearly two weeks in captivity in Iran, Blair said there are “elements at least of the Iranian regime” that are “financing, arming and supporting terrorism in Iraq.”

It’s time to hit the mad mullahs and hit them hard. Will tomorrow be a Good Friday or just the seque to yet another weekend? Time will tell. It’s time to pray. If we finally give Iran what’s coming to them, remember that you heard it here first. If it doesn’t happen it’s time to send President Bush letters and emails of support. He knows what to do. It’s time we let him know that we’ve got his back.

In other news, Nancy Pelosi foolishly claims “…the road to Damascus is a road to peace.” A traitor in our midst. One word summary: disgusting.

Update: Jimmuh Carter agrees with San Fran Nan.

Update 2: Did Pelosi commit a felony by going down that road to Damascus?

Update 3: Hot Air has more on those British soldiers held until recently by Iran. Wizbang does too. I can’t help thinking that perhaps this threat of military action caused the Iranian government to blink.

Update 4: Victor Davis Hanson has an interesting take that I seem to have missed: Begging for a Bombing.  He ends with a question:

But bomb Iran?

Sure.  Why not? Iran’s wish may yet come true.

  1. If the DemoRATs act fast maybe they can draft a resolution of surrender before the bombs fall.

    I hope President Bush does an address in the middle of the night: “My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Iran forever. The bombing begins in five minutes.”

    BOOM!

  2. I just hope we can save America, and the Middle East. It may not be too late yet, as long as Pelosi and the other Congressional moonbats don’t stop us.

  3. Attacking Iran will completely destabilize the Middle East, and likely plunge Syria and Israel into war. Even Egypt and Pakistan may get in the game. I don’t understand why conservatives are adamant in attacking Iran? Yeah, we could certainly attack Iran in a massive air attack, but are you ready to accept the consequences? Don’t get me wrong, here. I’m not completely writing off an attack… I’m a hawk compared to the rest of my party, but it will be a very big mistake.

    Anyway, it is unlikely that the US will attack on Friday. One, the suspected date is now in the media and two, the Moon is still out and three, the required force is not yet in place (I think three strike groups will have to be in place—there is only two).

  4. Beyond the political suicide and tremendous negative ramifications for attacking Iran, there is no causis belli. Iran does act like a poorly behaved child and its citizens engage our troops, perhaps with some aid from the Iranian government, but attacking Iran is not the answer. Just shoot the terrorists and arms suppliers coming over the Iraq-Iran border. Chances are Israel will attack Iran’s nuclear sites should Iran cough up enough dough to pay Russia for the nuclear technology they ardently and illegally seek. That may be a way’s off though. If Iran does go nuclear though, we are in big trouble.
