Yes. Is there truth in what we are being told by our corporate media and the Bush administration? No. Want an example of a lie and some truths that you are not being told? Then read Juan Cole's blog post of today. He is worth reading every day and a link to his site is posted in the right column near the top.

We can probably bet our bippies that there will be some sort of 'October surprise' - maybe a terrorism incident - which will have Bush yelling for a Republican Congress so he can go after Iran. Karl Rove, Bush's political advisor, never loses sight of what is most important - and right now that is a Republican-controlled Congress for the next two years. August has gone quietly with Democratic Party candidates making strong showings against Republican incumbents.

I think Rove, being a guy who does not like to peak too early, is planning a series of 'events' that will happen during September and October. Hate for Iran by common Americans will either be needed or be good to have in reserve. A couple months ago we all wondered which country would be the next victim of US destruction and possible conquest - Syria, North Korea or Iran. It has become clear that Iran is the choice. Bush likes violence and war as a normal method of operating and the increasing Iran-hating news is the tip off of coming events. Time will tell.
