    Like many Americans I suffer from empire fatigue. The idea that Iran poses an existential threat to the US is absurd. It is now painfully obvious that Iraq was not invaded for WMD, oil, or any of the other nonsense justifications fed to us. Neocons like Wolfowitz, Perle, and Ledeen acting out of tribal loyalty relentlessly agitated to have the Middle East's slate of regimes hostile to Israel wiped clean. September 11th was only a convenient pretext. The American people, the officer corps and "big brass" of our military, and true conservatives are at our wits end. These neocons who are utterly ignorant of military logistics then had the chutzpah to accuse our officer corps of incompetence when the neocons assigned them with an impossible task given present military readiness. If Jews want Iran militarily castrated they should do it their damn selves.
