For some reason, the American people seem not to be in a protesting mood. However, attacking Iran is about as sensible as throwing gold down a sewer. Iran may develop a nuclear weapon. However, it is surrounded by nuclear states: Israel, Russia, Pakistan, India, France and England. I am trying to remember when Iran attacked anyone. I believe it was Saddam who attacked Iran. Certainly, Iran has fomented trouble by supporting those we oppose. The case for attacking Iran is so weak, I doubt the American people will swallow anything this Administration trumps up. The question is whether enough pressure can be placed on Congress to have backbone to say No to Bush.
