Is coming nearer on the path.

Has the War With Iran Already Begun?

The basic thesis forwarded by Scott Ritter, former UN weapons inspector in Iraq, is that thanks to the Downing Street Memo and another report considering the inception of American hostilities in Iraq as many as seven months before the beginning of the full-blown invasion, we now know Bush's talk of peace and diplomacy in the run-up to the official inception of hostilities was a sham. Thus, why should we believe that all the talk of constructive engagement and diplomacy vis-a-vis Iran is anything more than a comparable smoke screen? Ritter refers to numerous moves made by the United states that appear to point towards an anticipated war in Iran. And would anyone be suprised?
