I'm feeling pretty good
The Cheney-Rumsfeld-Wolfowitz cabal that runs the Bush Administration's military and national security agenda, was hit with the political equivalent of a tsunami on Jan. 17, with the publication of a story by investigative journalist Seymour Hersh in the Jan. 24-31 issue of The New Yorker. Hersh revealed that the Administration is working on plans to launch missile and commando attacks against as many as three dozen of Iran's suspected nuclear and chemical weapons facilities, perhaps as early as Summer 2005. While the Administration's wanna-be imperialists, led by the Vice President, fantasize that such military strikes will trigger a "velvet revolution" of Gap Jeans-wearing young Iranians, who will peacefully overthrow the mullahs, in yet another Bush-induced outbreak of spontaneous Western democracy, experts warn that such an action would deepen the grip of the Islamic Revolution, and trigger regional chaos.
So I know that Nancy Pelosi has taken impeachment off the table but we saw last tuesday what the American people are capable of. There will still be many who cannot fathom impeaching a president, but last tuesday did give me hope.
I have resisted becoming American and perhaps after the next big election I can totally reconsider. Still, not since the Cold war was finished have I felt this good. Phew. One down, three more to go.
