    Only Impeachment Can Prevent More War​ | January 22, 2007
    Paul Craig Roberts
    Everyone knows that Bushs Iraq "surge" will not work. Even the authors of
    the plan, neoconservatives Frederick Kagan and Jack Keane, have emphasized
    that the plan cannot work with any less than an addition of 50,000 US troops
    committed to another three years of combat. Bush is only adding 40% of that
    number of troops, and Defense Secretary Gates speaks of the operation being
    over by summers end.
    On January 18 a panel of retired generals testifying on Capitol Hill slammed
    Bushs surge plan as "a fools errand." Even the easily bamboozled American
    public knows the plan will not work. Newsweeks latest poll released January
    20 shows that only 23% of the public support sending more troops to Iraq and
    that twice as many Americans trust the Democrats in Congress than trust
    A majority of Americans (54%) believe Bush to be neither honest nor ethical,
    and 57% believe that Bush lacks "strong leadership qualities."
    Nevertheless, Bush defended his surge plan, telling a group of TV stations
    last week, "I believe it will work."
    Bush is correct that it will work indeed, the surge is working. We have to
    be clear about how the plan works. It does not mean that 21,500 more US
    troops will bring order and stability to Iraq. The surge is working, because
    it is deflecting attention from the Bush Regimes real game plan.
    The real game plan is to orchestrate a war with Iran and to initiate wider
    conflict in the Middle East before public and military pressure forces the
    Bush Regime to withdraw US troops from Iraq.
    Two US carrier attack groups have been deployed to the Persian Gulf. US
    missile systems are being sent to oil producing countries to counter any
    incoming missiles from Iran should any survive the US attack. Israeli pilots
    have been training for an attack on Iran. US war doctrine has been changed
    to permit pre-emptive nuclear attack on non-nuclear countries. US attack
    aircraft have been deployed at bases in Turkey. A neocon admiral who attends
    AIPAC events has been made commander in chief of US forces in the Middle
    East. Obviously, the ground war in Iraq and Afghanistan are not the focus of
    the Bush Regimes new military deployments. The Bush Regime is focused on
    attacking Iran.
    In CounterPunch (January 16) Col. Sam Gardiner reports that the Bush Regime
    has put into operation a group led by National Security Council staff whose
    mission is to create and foment outrage against Iran. Col. Gardiner details
    various signs of the Bush Regimes escalation and indicates some of the final
    deployments that will signal an imminent strike on Iran, such as "USAF
    tankers moved to unusual places, like Bulgaria" in order to position them
    for refueling B-2 bombers on their way to Iran.
    Both Michel Chossudovsky (ICH Jan. 17) and Jorge Hirsch ( Jan.
    20) have recently documented evidence that the Bush Regime is orchestrating
    a crisis with Iran that can lead to the use of nuclear weapons to attack
    Civil libertarians who have observed the Bush Regimes concentration of
    dictatorial powers in the presidency expect that war with Iran, especially
    if fearful nuclear weapons are used, will be accompanied by Bushs
    declaration of a state of emergency. The Bush Regime will use the state of
    emergency to grab more arbitrary and dictatorial powers in the name of
    protecting "national security interests" and American citizens from
    As the Regimes crimes against the US Constitution and humanity will be
    monstrous, dissent will be throttled in ways that will make Americans afraid
    to speak, or even to think, the truth. By stifling dissent, the Bush Regime
    will escape accountability for launching wars on the basis of blatant lies.
    It will complete its destruction of the civil liberties that protect free
    speech, dissent, and Americans from arbitrary arrest and indefinite
    detention without charges or access to attorneys.
    Congress is wasting precious time with non-binding resolutions and debates
    over cutting off war funding. The Bush Regime is rushing the country into a
    war and a domestic police state. Writing in Slate, Dahlia Lithwick reports
    that one of the main goals of the so-called "war on terror" (essentially a
    propagandistic hoax) is to achieve a massive expansion in unaccountable
    executive power. This is a long-time goal of VP Cheney and his chief of
    staff, David Addington. It is also the main goal of the "conservative"
    Federalist Society, an organization of Republican lawyers from whose
    membership Republican judicial nominees are drawn.
    American public opinion is being manipulated. In the name of protecting
    "American freedom and democracy," the Bush regime rides roughshod over both
    as it ignores both the public and Congress and proceeds with a catastrophic
    policy supported by no one but the Bush Regime and a cabal of power-mad
    Nothing can stop the Regime except the immediate impeachment of Bush and
    Cheney. This is Americas last chance.
