War pigs

They don't just go looking for a fight. They go looking for ways to start a fight.

[...] an idea was considered to dress up Navy Seals as Iranians, put them on fake Iranian speedboats, and shoot at them. This idea, intended to provoke an Iran war, was ultimately rejected. (link)

Glad they rejected that one. Wish they'd have rejected whatever one got us into the war we're in now.

War Pigs.

Edit: We don't know if that conversation really happened. But, it's not hard to imagine it did.

I think we rejected the thing that got us into the current war twice ... it just didn't stick either time.

Ron Suskind's book claims that the Bush administration planted a forged letter that "proved" all the Iraq stuff like the African uranium and 911 connections. Then they pretended to "find" the letter and ... the rest we know.
