Fasten Your Seatbelts

And adjust your seats to an upright position, for we might be in for a wild ride. Check out this rumor (via Atrios) about a possible planned attack against Iran.

The rumor is just a rumor, but other signs suggest that the Bush administration might be considering a pre-emptive something-or-other against Iran. Isn't it interesting to live in an era where one prays that the tinfoil hat on the other country's crazed leader isn't as tight as the tinfoil hat of our crazed leader?

I hope that this rumor is an empty one, naturally. And if it isn't, I hope that writing about it, a lot, will make it into an empty rumor. But then I also hope for a nice prehensile tail.

In other news, the U.S. doesn't have enough military troops for even the current many and various wars.
