With sincere apologies to Mr. Limbaugh: “I TOLD YOU SO!”
Just a few days ago we postulated on this site that the NIE report, which declared that Iran had stopped attempts to make an Atom bomb as far back as 2003, was wrong and that this kind of erroneous information was likely to start a war in the Middle East. Some thought that was a stretch on my part. Others knew exactly what I was saying. Well now, the Israelis have confirmed what we warned about on this very site last week. The article is entitled:
“Israel: US report on Iran may spark war”
We recommend you go over and read the entire article. You’ll find it at:
Look, the NIE report is the kind of dumb mistake rookies make! Any “fool” would know that the release of that kind of intelligence assessment could very well light the fuse between the Israelis and the Iranians… unless… that is exactly what the intention was from the very beginning! NAHHH, I don’t believe our intelligence community is that James “Bond-esque”.
The fact of the matter is… I’m not that smart. I’m just your average Carolina County Boy, who makes an effort to stay abreast of the happenings in the world. My point is… if this ole country boy can look far enough ahead to see and predict the reaction of a country when confronted with, what amounts to their “back-up” being withdrawn, the surely the guys and gals in US intelligence, with all their degrees, and training, and electronics, and “humint” (Human intelligence…. meaning spies on the ground in enemy territory) should have seen this one coming ten miles out! I think they did!
I am convinced this entire fiasco with the NIE report was a rigged attack on the Bush Administration…. nothing more… and nothing less. It would appear that forces, within our government, hate Mr. Bush so much they are willing to sacrifice the security of the country to damage his reputation, or his legacy, or his current administration, just a year ahead of the 2008 elections.
I try, very hard, not to use profanity on this site. But, I must tell you … what the US intelligence community has done with the NIE report is a “profane” way to do business. It may wind up costing thousands of lives, US lives included.
Have we Americans come to hate each other, so much, that we will destroy each other even if it causes bloodshed? Look, we’ve done it before! So, do not think it can’t happen again! Because it can!
The scriptures tell us “A house divided cannot stand” … another truth from that old book of wisdom. Has it not occurred to Americans that we are destroying ourselves? We are nearly as divided now, as we were during the War Between the States. In some ways, we are MORE divided. Those of us who have studied that period in American history see parallels that are frightening in today’s America.
The Left has waged a war beginning with the election of George Bush, right on up to the current day, to destroy him and his party. Already, the Right is planning similar warfare against the Left in anticipation of their winning the Presidency in 2008, including the impeachment of the Democratic President.
Where does it stop? Does it stop? If not… this nation is doomed.
