Do You Know Where We're Heading?

Lincoln Country Road or Armaggeddon?

UK Govt Sources Confirm War With Iran Is On:
Israel, with US and British support, is deliberately escalating the cycle of retaliation to legitimize the imminent targeting of Iran before year's end.
Before you dismiss this as alarmist Conspiracy Theory #1226, consider this:
Ha'aretz's Reuven Pedatzur calls for an external investigation into whether the IDF may have not taken adequate measures to prevent its soldiers from being kidnapped...

"Senior IDF officers are not accustomed to criticism originating outside the army's ranks, and normally enjoy great immunity from having to take responsibility for their failings. But there have been too many shortcomings and failures in recent weeks for them to be ignored. It is possible that this has been a matter of bad luck, but until the incidents are examined seriously by elements external to the IDF, there is an unpleasant feeling of a whitewash operation going on - and concern that something fundamentally bad is going on in the army."
It looks like those two Israeli soldiers were sacrificed to Hezbollah as an excuse for launching this war, which even wingnuts acknowledge was pre-planned for at least a year. And that was following Israeli provocation over several weeks, including the bombing of civilians on a beach and the abduction of two Lebanese.

The neocons have been agitating for war with Iran, which has been there major goal for a long time. Sy Hersh has closely documented the "attack Iran" debate within the administration and the army. People like Michael Ledeen are doing everything they can to push this violence as far as they can.

There there is this sort of thing:
I’ve been hanging with the Rapture crowd for a piece I’m putting together for my blog and apparently August 22 is the Big Day. The Rapturists are loving this Israel bloodbath. Armegeddon begins in Northern Israel, apparently, as per the prophecies or some crap.
