A post-election Iraq hypothetical.
Sid Blumenthal has the lead story today over at Salon, and it scared me to death.
From the article:
Gen. Hoare believes from the information he has received that "a decision has been made" to attack Fallujah "after the first Tuesday in November. That's the cynical part of it -- after the election.
This got me to thinking--we can all believe that Bush would do this, whether or not he won, maybe even more so if he lost. The real question for me is--if the neocons know they're going out, and that they're not likely to make a comeback, is there anything they wouldn't consider? Would they potentially lob a "fuck you" nuke into the Sunni Triangle on January 18th and leave a brand new Kerry administration to pick up the pieces?
