Here we go again, folks!
WASHINGTON, Feb. 16 - Top intelligence officials said today that they remained concerned that terrorists were regrouping to attempt another major attack on the United States and also said that Iran posed a rising threat in the Middle East.
"It may be only a matter of time before Al Qaeda or other groups attempt to use chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear weapons," Porter J. Goss, the director of central intelligence, told the Senate Intelligence Committee in an annual report on threats to the United States.
Sound familiar? A bit, y'know, late-2002-ish? Boy, if you love war, the next few years are going to make you jizz in your pants. Never mind that we can't afford it, we haven't got the soldiers to fight it (unless we start up the draft), the rest of the world would turn its back on us utterly (at best), and that the Iraq war has been a ceaseless, unmitigated disaster... fuck it, Bush's numbers are dropping and that Social Security scheme just ain't flyin', so it's time for MORE WAR!
When are we going to wise up? (The other half of "us," I mean. The suckers.) |
