The American "left" still running the Sy Hersh mantra that Bush and Cheney's wet dream is to attack Iran. Sy Hersh:

"Still, the Pentagon is continuing intensive planning for a possible bombing attack on Iran, a process that began last year, at the direction of the President. In recent months, the former intelligence official told me, a special planning group has been established in the offices of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, charged with creating a contingency bombing plan for Iran that can be implemented, upon orders from the President, within twenty-four hours."

Nothing unusual here as all administrations establish policy planning groups to do what-ifs and world-o-war crafting, although the wet dream target may be different. Reagan's what-if nuking it out with Russia, Clinton's Kosovo, etc.

The "left" in the '80s was running with the phrase that Reagan was planning nuclear war with Russia and the "right" reported that Clinton planned to use a dramatic escalation of military force to settle other countries' domestic conflicts. Reagan did not use his what-if Russia plans; preferring smaller dirty interventions. As did Slick Willy Bill (Kosovo, Bosnia, Haiti).

Highly unlikely BushCo will bite off more war to choke his poll numbers on; he's mucked up enough wet dreams already. Besides, the Iranian clerics and Ahmadinejad are doing a fair job of hanging themselves with domestic failures.

Hersh is good for keeping the sheople chuckling nervously over the Boy Blunder camped out in the capitol; reminding folks there's a scary bunch of drunken putzes and corrupted puppets running the Whites House who might wage more war any moment now.

You would think after a few hundred years of this perversity Americans wouldn't be so surprised at government.
