Dumb as a sack full of hammers

It seems as if things are moving along, just as planned. From the Jerusalem Post: IAF preparing for Iran strike.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) has been training on long-range flights, including refueling in mid-flight, in preparation for potential strikes against Iranian nuclear targets. The training program has been taking place for some time but has only been released for publication Friday, the Ma'ariv daily reported.


At the end of 2007 the US and Israel are expected to hold a joint assessment to ascertain the influence of economic sanctions against Iran.

A new package of upgraded sanctions prepared jointly by Israel and the US, includes exerting pressure on European governments to cancel US $22 billion in loan guarantees given annually to European companies trading with Iran.

The new package also includes sanctions against banks working with Iran, non-renewal of oil infrastructure in Iran and a long series of economic actions that are meant to seriously hurt the Iranian economy.

Just what we need to do.....not! Iran is not Iraq, these sanctions are likely to do more harm than good. Russia and China will not go along with this, and in all probability will step up their support of Tehran; using their vast 'dollar holdings', causing more economic problems for the U.S. than for Iran. Crap, is there not one person, in power, possessing a little common sense?
