Vote GOP = Vote War

If a tin-foil-hat-wearing nobody like me said this, you might choose to ignore it:
After careful study of recent moves and statements by the Bush Administration, I have concluded that there is at least a 10% chance of an American attack on Iran before the November 7 Congressional elections and about a 90% chance before the administration’s end in 2008.
But the author of those words is William R. Polk, who was a member of the U.S. Policy Planning Council responsible for the Middle East from 1961 to 1965, professor of history and director of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Chicago, president of the Adlai Stevenson Institute of International Affairs, author of many books on international affairs, world and Middle Eastern history, including Understanding Iraq (HarperCollins, New York and London 2005 and 2006) and, together with former Senator George McGovern, Out of Iraq: A Practical Plan for Withdrawal Now (Simon & Schuster, New York, 2006).

So go read the first of several promised articles by Mr Polk here: America Moves Toward War with Iran.
