Duck & Cover!

With 138,000 U.S. troops occupying Iraq, is now a good time to start saber-rattling and blustering at Iran? Apparently. Gen. Abizaid, head of the U.S. Central Command told interviewers via the USA Today, "Why the Iranians would want to move against us in an overt manner that would cause us to use our air or naval power against them would be beyond me." Don't forget all of those nukes and nifty missiles General! "We can generate more military power per square inch than anybody else on Earth, and everybody knows it . . . If you ever even contemplate our nuclear capability, it should give everybody the clear understanding that there is no power that can match the United States militarily."
Should we be concerned about stirring up the Shiite population (a mere 15 million or so) in Iraq after we have unloaded all those missiles on Shiite Iran? Apparently not.
Should we worry about the military being overstretched in the coming years? Posh! Fiddlesticks! According to the USA Today, Abizaid pointed to the U.S. victory in Fallujah with 10,000 troops. And Iran can't have more than three, four cities at the most. Right?
With the President safely reelected and that pansy, Colin Powell on his way out; It is time to get ready for a second Bush term. I'm building a fallout shelter.
