Iran War Prep Begins Tuesday

Justin at Antiwar.com points us to the timeline for beginning the marketing roll-out for a war with Iran:

They [the source’s institution] have “instructions” (yes, that was the word used) from the Office of the Vice-President to roll out a campaign for war with Iran in the week after Labor Day; it will be coordinated with the American Enterprise Institute, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, Commentary, Fox, and the usual suspects. It will be heavy sustained assault on the airwaves, designed to knock public sentiment into a position from which a war can be maintained. Evidently they don’t think they’ll ever get majority support for this–they want something like 35-40 percent support, which in their book is “plenty.”

Presumably all of this timed to really kick into high-gear with the anniversary of September You-Know-What.

    Wait, I know congress is has the strength of a wet blanket, but how do they expect to do anything with an approval rating under 35 (it was higher in the lead up to Iraq) and a congress that is against them? I have a hard time believing that they would be stupid enough to authorize another war not just on the heel’s of another war, but on the heels of an unpopular one with a little over a year left of their administration. Im not even sure they could achieve 30 percent approval and even if they did I don’t think congress would allow it to go much further.

    It scares the shit out of me to think that it could happen though. And I suppose it could considering the the recurring disappointment and failures of government over the last 8 years. I am just a little skeptical though.
