Invasion of Iran Starts Here

You'd better believe that if the outgoing Secretary of State is building up the pressure on Iran that the neo-cons in the White House are gunning for Tehran to be next on the hit list. Iran may have made concessions this week, including the suspension of its enrichment programme but WMDs or lack thereof make little or no difference to the Bush administration. Their stated aim is to expedite regime change in so called 'rogue states' and expand American hegemony in strategically important middle east countries. Moreover, with Condoleeze Rice moving into Colin Powell's position there's yet another hawk in a top level job. If I were a civilian in Tehran, Damascus or Amman right now, I'd be building a very deep concrete bunker!
