Just on the off chance that you haven't been keeping up with the liberal media over the past few days, there are two things I'd like to draw to your attention. First is this scary story being leaked by Pentagon insiders about the Bush regime warming up for attacking Iran. Some say it's just rhetoric or contingency planning at this point, but I say rhetoric and contingency planning are just two steps on the path to another preemptive war. I almost wish it would happen, because it would truly be the end of the neocon era . . . but it would also be the start of horrorific world war.
The second story is this speculation about an emerging palace coup in the Pentagon. I personally think it's right on the money. Senior military officers and experienced defense policymakers KNOW Bush is a lunatic and they HATE that he went AWOL during Nam and got away with it. It wouldn't surprise me in the least to see them undermining his agenda. Not as a concerted effort or conspiracy . . . just as matters of personal conscience.
PS This isn't North Carolina news per se, but any major stories about the military have a huge impact on our state. I only wish North Carolina's retired military leaders had the integrity and the balls to speak out.
