Raise you hand if you don't think Bush/Cheney will bomb Iran before their term is up. You may be dismissed; read another blog.
If you didn't raise your hand, you and I need to do a couple of things to save this nation from doom after the boneheads order the bombs dropped.
First, we need to decide which actions of civil disobedience will cause the greatest disruption of 'business as usual.'
Next we have to get the word out on the plan.
Finally, we need to connect with like-minded citizens to coordinate the massive action.
It is fairly obvious to anyone who hasn't been in a coma for the past 8 years that these two meat-heads never learn from their mistakes and/or don't care whether they make mistakes. Look at the fiasco 'Mission Accomplished' turned into. Recall WMD's and the uranium from Africa. The connection between al-Qaeda and Saddam. The mobile biological weapon centers. The smoking gun as mushroom cloud. We'll be greeted as liberators. The war will last at best 6 weeks. We've reached a turning-point. The surge is working. We've turned the corner.
How many lies was that? I've lost count.
Raise you hand if you can believe anything that Bush or Cheney says. If your hand is up, go home.
Obviously, for those of us who have been paying attention, we couldn't trust these two bums to tell us the time. So, when they claim that 'we have no plans to invade Iran' we have to parse the phrase. They may have no plan to INVADE Iran, but they sure in hell have a plan to BOMB Iran. And who doubts it? Raise your hand if you doubt it. Those with your hands raised please go to bed.
So, the rest of us know that it is going to happen; one day/afternoon/evening/morning there will be Breaking News on CNN: U.S. missiles launched against targets in Iran. We know this. All we don't know at this point is the date; we also don't know the massive civil disobedience plan that will be activated right after the Breaking News appears on CNN.
That's our task: what will be the various civil disobedience actions that will spread across America on that day? Remember, it must be massive and it must cause disruption of 'business as usual.' Our survival as a nation depends on this planning because, if we can get a massive, nationwide plan in order before the event, it may deter the event from happening. Sort of like a pre-emptive strike before the pre-emptive strike.
Are you with me? Raise your hand. If you didn't raise your hand, go to the library and read the U. S. Constitution and an easy reader version of the American Revolution.
Brainstorming time: what would constitute a massive civil action, easy to accomplish, that would spread quickly from coast to coast and stop 'business as usual?' Come back tomorrow with your suggestions.
