On to Teheran! 

Seymour Hersh is doing some reporting:

One former high-level intelligence official told [Seymour Hersh] The New Yorker, "This is a war against terrorism, and Iraq is just one campaign. The Bush administration is looking at this as a huge war zone. Next, we're going to have the Iranian campaign."
(via New Yorker)

Um, with what Army?

Oh, don't worry, it's only small covert operations teams:

Hersh reported that Bush has already "signed a series of top-secret findings and executive orders authorizing secret commando groups and other Special Forces units to conduct covert operations against suspected terrorist targets in as many as 10 nations in the Middle East and South Asia."

Defining these as military rather than intelligence operations, Hersh reported, will enable the Bush administration to evade legal restrictions imposed on the CIA's covert activities overseas.

Ten nations...

Death squads in Iraq, Special Forces operations all over the Middle East—looks like the Bush Dirty War is going to make for a very exciting 2005!

Not, of course, that there's any risk of blowback (back). Except for the blue states, of course, but if God chooses to rain down cleansing fire from Heaven on the ungodly in the form of dirty bombs or loose nukes, that's a good thing, right?
