When Wishful Thinking Replaces Resistance

Jean Bricmont offers up a sobering assessment about the possible attack on Iran. It is, he argues, entirely unpreventable should Bush/Cheney decide to push the button. Included with this is a damning indictment of the left and especially the academic left, who fret about "whether Capital is a Signifier or a Signified." Indeed.
Why Bush Can Get Away with Attacking Iran

Bush can attack Iran and probably will, because the spineless Democrats gave him that authority with the Iraq war resolution and they continue to be spineless today.

You think Harry Reid has the courage to stand up to Bush?

The only possible solution is impeachment and to try them all for fucking war crimes.

Yes. That is the solution. But the Dems can't even get the equal troop deployment/rest amendment passed, while our media spins the GOP obstructionism as the result of ennui in the Senate.

I don't hold much hope for impeachment proceedings as much as they are deserved. It seems that as demand for impeachment, both through evident "high crimes and misdemeanors" and public opinion, only grow, the chances that the Dems actually consider it only wither.
