The Next Bush Fiasco: Attacking Iran?

Bush's 2006 mid-term election strategy may include war with Iran. According to the BBC:
US commandos are operating inside Iran selecting sites for future air strikes, says the American investigative reporter Seymour Hersh.

In the New Yorker magazine, Hersh says intelligence officials have revealed that Iran is the Bush administration's "next strategic target".

<> Hersh says that American special forces have conducted reconnaissance missions inside Iran for six months.
The New Yorker journalist adds that President Bush has authorised the operations, defining them as military to avoid legal restrictions on CIA covert intelligence activities overseas.

They constitute a revival of a form of covert US military activity used in the 1980s, notably in support of the Nicaraguan Contras.

This brings up the following doomsday scenario:
George Bush and the neocons came into power planning to make this "The American Century." If someone doesn't start forcing some truth down Mr. Bush's throat, by 2008 the US will no longer be a world power.
