Price on another war?

From the BBC I see that America are bored with the Iraq war and are looking for a new place to play.

US officials in Iraq had said they had evidence that Iran was providing weapons to Shia militias who attacked the US military.

Doesn't this sound a wee bit like America trying to find an excuse to attack Iran as they are doing so badly in Iraq?

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not a huge fan of Iran and I find statements like:

Mr Ahmadinejad said Iran "shied away from all conflict"´

Apart from wiping Israel of the map

and that no peace would come with foreign troops in Iraq.

Which is not exactly "shying away" from all conflict.

Rather stupid, irritating and unnecessary.

However, when it comes to America's record with the whole telling the truth aspect of why they have to go to war: the WMD, harbouring terrorists, going to the UN and then ignoring them when they didn't get the answer they wanted, I just can't help but think it will all end in disaster.

Trixy's daddy says that we should just let them fight each other as that's the only way they will be happy. But I think he just wants to retire early.

It's never going to end, is it? I mean, how do you fight God?

It all rather depends on which God

Not sure the American people will fall for Bush's hysterical warnings and lies as justification for another war. But there is no way in which you can interact with the fundamentalist regimes in both the US and Iran. Neither will accept that they are wrong as they are acting on the infallible Word of God.

Which is kind of ironic, given in theory they are acting on the Word of the same God.
