It's clear by now- the warmongers are pushing ahead, and the peacemakers have a tough job to prevent WW III.
The strategy of the peacemakers in Congress, those who really want out of Iraq and no attack on Iran, is to expose Bush administration wrongdoings via oversight hearings and investigations. This is somewhat successful, gets media attention, distracts the Bushies and rattles them. But it's too slow.
Meanwhile, Congress funds Iraq and gives permission to attack Iran without even being asked. Bush fires the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Pace, who is on record as saying that the military opposes an attack on Iran. This removes a key block to WW III.
Cheney is reportedly the main force behind the push to nuke Iran. In the last Republican candidate debate, 8/9 candidates favored nuking Iran. It's become the Republican party line.
Time is of the essence. This madness needs to be stopped quickly.
There is a way.
HR 333 calls for the impeachment of Cheney, on the grounds that he lied us into Iraq, and is now doing his best to lie us into Iran. It's short and to the point.
Introduced in April 2007 by Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), the bill now has 7 cosponsors. Three signed on last week, including the cochairs of the Progressive Caucus, Lynn Woolsey and Barbara Lee, both Democrats from the Bay Area.
