From Chris Floyd:
Anyone who thinks the Bush Administration does not intend to attack Iran either has rocks in the head or their head in the sand. The warmongers have raised their cacophonous howling of threat and accusation against Iran to entirely new levels. Every day now, some major Administration figure makes fiery charges that Iran is directly, deliberately killing U.S. soldiers in Iraq: a clear casus belli, if it were true, which it almost certainly is not.
So this is where we are now. The very last rhetorical line has been crossed. The last top military official who might — might — have resisted military action against Iran has been removed, replaced (with the avid backing of Obama) by Bush’s willing executioner Petraeus.
