Israel's former Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz -- who is quite likely to become Israel's next Prime Minister, as their current PM may soon step down over corruption charges -- has announced that "if Iran continues its nuclear weapons programme, we will attack it . . . Other options are disappearing. The sanctions are not effective. There will be no alternative but to attack Iran in order to stop the Iranian nuclear programme."

Oh... and he also said that such an operation could only be conducted with US support, which he more-or-less took for granted.

...and so, oil jumped $11 a barrel on Friday, to a new record high. It is estimated that for every dollar increase in the price of oil, the price of gas increases by 2.5 cents a gallon... so expect prices to go up about another 27 cents shortly, with accompanying price increases from all those businesses whose shipping costs increase with higher gas prices.  

Inflation, insane gas prices *AND* open conflict with Iran?! Gee... thanks Mofo! Your security comes first, even if it means another generation of preemptive wars!

So, why is it necessary for US leaders to reject and denounce Rev. Wright or Pastor John Hagee, but nobody finds it neccessary to reject and denounce Israel's crappy leadership when their fearmongering sucks tens of billions of dollars out of our country and pushes us towards openended conflicts we can't afford?!
