The Project for the New American Century
, a criminal neo-conservative organization and the architects of the Iraq war have been growing vocal lately. Despite congressional aversion to the White house buildup to launch an attack on Iran, PNAC member Richard Perle stated that the president will indeed invade - as per the PNAC's wishes.
"Would this president do it? I think that until the day he leaves office, this is a president that, if he is told
, 'Mr. President, you are at the point of no return,' I have very little doubt that this president would order the necessary military action."
"I'm not convinced that we have a lot of time. Given the peril that would result, its astonishing to me that we do not now have a serious political strategy with Iran," he said, adding he thought regime change is "the only significant effective way" to deal with the Iranian threat.
"If we continue on our current course, we have only a military option. So what I'm urging, and this should have happened a very long time ago, is that we make a serious effort to work with the internal (Iranian) opposition," Perle said. Think Progress
So it would seem that whatever Richard Perle and the PNAC want from the president, they expect to get.
Another neo-conservative and PNAC
member attempting to flex his political power is neo-conservative Bill Kristol, who wises that the congress would just "be quiet" about Iraq for at least six or nine months so that President Bush's "surge" plan can have a "chance to work."
Sunday morning on Fox News, Weekly Standard editor William Kristol said that Democratic congress members are "so irresponsible that they can’t be quiet for six or nine months and say the president has made a decision, we’re not going to change that decision, we’re not going to cut off funds and insist on the troops coming back, so let’s give it a chance to work."
