Esquire: "Secret History of the Impending War with Iran"

- I am in the process of watching a reporter from Esquire magazine, who claims there is effort to attack Iran by the Bushies. An article appears in this month's issue. Read it here:
Two former high-ranking policy experts from the Bush Administration say the U.S. has been gearing up for a war with Iran for years, despite claiming otherwise. It'll be Iraq all over again.

The author, Flynt Leverett, worked in the White House until 2003, when he left over policy differences, including Iraq.

- Iran is years away from developing a bomb. So why the urgency? Remember the debate prior to the invasion of Iraq?

- More Iraq corruption, or just incompetence. Your money at work:
A $1.2bn (£590m) contract for training Iraqi police was so badly managed that auditors do not know how the money was spent, the US state department says.
The programme was run by a private US company, DynCorp. It insists there has been no intentional fraud.

This can't help the morale of our troops, if and when they find out about it:
But some of its spending included the acquisition of a $1.8m X-ray scanner that was never used, and the $4m purchase of 20 VIP trailers and an Olympic-size swimming pool with money intended to fund an Iraqi police compound.

- Mike Huckabee's star is rising. His performance during the debate Sunday helped him. In fact, a unscientific FOX poll right after the Republicans held their get together, had the former Arkansas Governor in second place. Now there are articles like this one Huckabee to Ronald Reagan. Then there is this article which also talks about Huckabee's ascendancy.

- Tragically the future of Latin America isn't too bright. Economic "prosperity" in the States, along with NAFTA (surprise, surprise), have not benefited our neighbors to the South. In Columbia debate takes the form of political candidates being murdered.

- After watching the wild fires, do you still not believe in global warming?
