Iraq election over, Iran next?

Isn’t US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice such a sweetheart? She is warmly sending out her heartfelt sympathy to the Iranian people. “The Iranian people should have a chance to determine their own future”. “They should be no different from the Palestinians or Iraqis or other peoples around the world.” I really think she is such a good person to be looking out for the Iranians, as she also done for the Iraqis. If I were an Iranian, I could only imagine how good it would make me feel to have a wealthy American that lives halfway across the world tell me that I should be “free”. I would welcome her bombs; I would sacrifice my house and my family to have “freedom”. I would go out and purchase an American flag raise it proudly.

Rice has stated that an attack on Iran is “not on the agenda at this point”. “We have many diplomatic tools still at our disposal and we intend to pursue them fully”. If I were an Iranian, this would instill significant comfort, knowing that the US isn’t going to bomb me yet. Knowing that the world police are going to attempt to use diplomatic means to resolve the issue before resorting to war. But after some thought, of course it isn’t in the agenda “at this point”, why would it be in the agenda? The bulk of the army is stuck in Iraq, and would congress approve another costly war with the ever-increasing costs of the Iraq war?
