Al-Qaeda, Neo-Cons Share Key Goal
It needs to be noted that al-Qaeda and the neo-Cons shared at least one key goal: both groups seem hell-bent on starting a war between the Iran and the USA.
Presumably, for different reasons!
A blueprint for trying to start a war between the United States and Iran was among a "huge treasure" of documents found in the hideout of terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Iraqi officials said Thursday....
"We mean specifically attempting to escalate the tension between America and Iran, and American and the Shiite in Iraq," [the documents were quoted as saying]
Documents: Al-Qaida Sought U.S.-Iran War
"Here's a likely consequence we see coming a mile away.
What is Bush doing to prevent it?"
If the neo-Cons and al-Qaeda get their war, it may be a "win-win" for them but it will be gigantic "lose lose lose" for America.
Even without these documents, it seems like an obvious strategy.
The Bush administration has allied America with the Iran-leaning Shiites in a Shiite-Sunni war. So Zarqawi needs a wedge to break that alliance and believed a conflict between Iran and America would do that.
He's probably right.
So, I have to ask, how does Bush plan to avoid this? If American goes toe-to-toe in a showdown with Iran, how does Bush plan avoid losing our pro-Iran Shiite ally in the Iraq war?
The Bush administration have proved themselves to be the Kings of Unintended Consequences.
Now, here's a likely consequence we see coming a mile away. What is Bush doing to prevent it?
Or has he even thought about it?
