Casus Belli Against Iran!

Hatched by Dafydd

Via Scott Johnson at Power Line (hat tip to Big Lizards commenter MTF), ABC World News Tonight is reporting that American troops have intercepted heavy-duty bombs being smuggled into Iraq... directly from known a bombmaking factory in Iran.

If true, then as John Hinderaker notes, this is clearly an act of war by Iran against the United States.

And, the lizards respond, the perfect casus belli whenever we choose to launch a military assault on that awful country.

Casus Belli is not a term that far too many don't understand. Even if it is war, there must be a way to avoid such...just ask Cindy.

Think Surrender...

Powerline says Iran gets an early start on the coming war.

"First punch usually wins in a war"

Jus ad bellum...casus belli...jus in bello?!?

Well, i guess we sit and wait for more proof or reasons for fighting back, after we keep getting hit.

Such thinking doesn't work in Prison...perhaps it works in 'Da FreeWorld.

We shall see...

From my One more score to settle with Iran post:

We've been at war with Iran since 1979.  Jimmy Carter didn't have balls enough to do anything about it and everyone since then has let it slide for one reason or another. Reagan may or may not have cut a "Give us our people back and we won't bomb you back to the stone age" deal, Bush 41 had his hands full with the Kuwait situation, and Clinton was too busy chasing tail in the Oval Office to give a damn about foreign affairs. Bush 43 identified Iran as part of the Axis of Evil in his first State Of The Union speech but considered finishing the job in Iraq more urgent. I don't expect him to do anything about Iran till after the November elections but I'll be very shocked and disappointed if he leaves office with out settling some scores, even if he has to settle for an air campaign between the election and the time a Democratic Congress is seated in January. If the Republicans still control both houses after the election look for a regime change in Iran some time next year.
