Beware the Ides of March..

Looks like March is the month for operation Shock and Awe part II. Although how the US can sustain another war in Iran I don't know.
Various scenarios have been thrown about lately with the likelihood that Israel will take the lead strike with Iran then responding in kind.
Given that Bush recently committed the US to the defense of Israel that will give him the excuse he needs to go into Iran. And may also give him a nice reason to exit Iraq, since the troops will be needed in Iran he can close up shop in Iraq saying that Iran posses a bigger threat and sure the job is done anyway!

And of course the fact that Iran is very close to opening their own Oil Bourse which greatly threatens the petro-dollar dominance and therefore the US economy is a complete coincidence!

A senior Russian parliamentary official and leader of the ultranationalist Liberal Democratic Vladimir Zhirinovsky believes that a U.S. attack on Iran is inevitable, he has told Ekho Moskvy radio station.

“The war is inevitable because the Americans want this war,” he said. “Any country claiming a leading position in the world will need to wage wars. Otherwise it will simply not be able to retain its leading position. The date for the strike is already known — it is the election day in Israel (March 28 ). It is also known how much that war will cost,” Zhirinovsky said

And Scott Ritter is banging the same drum:
He predicted the matter will wind up before the U.N. Security Council, which will determine there is no evidence of a weapons program. Then, he said, John Bolton, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, "will deliver a speech that has already been written. It says America cannot allow Iran to threaten the United States and we must unilaterally defend ourselves."

"How do I know this? I've talked to Bolton's speechwriter," Ritter said.
