    Coca has been, ancestrally, a sacred leaf. We, the indigenous, have had a profound respect toward it... a respect that includes that we don't "pisar" it (the verb "pisar" means to treat the leaves with a chemical substance, one of the first steps in the production of cocaine). In general, we only use it to acullicar: We chew it during times of war, during ritual ceremonies to salute Mother Earth (the Pachamama) or Father Sun or other Aymara divinities, like the hills. Thus, as an indigenous nation, we have never prostituted Mama Coca or done anything artificial to it because it is a mother. It is the occidentals who have prostituted it. It is they who made it into a drug. This doesn't mean that we don't understand the issue. We know that this plague threatens all of humanity and, from that perspective, we believe that those who have prostituted the coca have to be punished. - former Bolivian guerrilla leader and presidential candidate Felipe Quispe 2002 via Rigorous Intuition (link)

Oarwell

The obligatory propaganda barrage. But smart money, against all the odds, is on no war: look at oil futures.

If our managers were smarter, we'd see scripted (and fun!) scenarios play out: Iranians attack California state house, thwarted by MP5-wielding governor, chomping cigar, blasting at them from his Hummer. Or Hillary, wrestling one of them to the ground with Arkansas ju-jitsu. Cheney, peppering one of their drones with birdshot.

I think the closest thing the US had to the scenarios you describe was when the Black Panthers stormed the California capital building with weapons in 1967. Imagine being a fly on the wall and seeing the horrific reaction on Gov. Reagan´s face! This, of course, was when the Reagans were living for a time on 666 St. Cloud Road in Bel-Air (they subsequently changed the number to 668). Soon afterward, Reagan was advised to gut the CA junior college system, as to prevent producing more educated and militant ´negros--´a rich white man´s worst nightmare!

In regards to Iran, I keep switching hats on this...but, unfortunately, something tells me it wouldn´t fully be the final ´Mission Accomplished´ on Bush´s terra cake if he didn´t actually pull the trigger.
