I wrote yesterday, April 19, 2007, of the news reports that the Iran Supreme Court overturned the murder convictions of six who were found guilty by lower Iranian courts of murdering people they found "morally corrupt." I, as many Iranian lawyers indicated in my post, find this judicial action to be morally repugnant and unjustifiable. However, I do not use it to justify a campaign of vilification of the Iranian nation or the Iranian people.

In previous posts, I have observed that the Bush regime seeks every opportunity to claim that Iran is supplying IEDs and other weapons to Iraqi insurgents. I have asked where is the evidence for what I consider wild baseless assertions. I have found no credible evidence for linking Iraqi insurgent activity to Iran. The whole Bush campaign seems designed to provoke a war with Iran, another example of Bush's apparent militaristic desire for world hegemony.

This is a most serious world situation that Bush, Cheney & Co. are fomenting. World war could be the result. So John Mc Cain's comments on Wednesday about Iran are nothing short of alarming. David Corn points me to the story by Scott Harper in The Georgetown Times, South Carolina's oldest newspaper, about Mc Cain's comments while campaigning in that state:

"Another man — wondering if an attack on Iran is in the works — wanted to know when America is going to “send an air mail message to Tehran.” McCain began his answer by changing the words to a popular Beach Boys song.“Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran,” he sang to the tune of Barbara Ann. “Iran is dedicated to the destruction of Israel. That alone should concern us but now they are trying for nuclear capabilities. I totally support the President when he says we will not allow Iran to destroy Israel.” He stopped short of answering the actual question and did not say if he supports an invasion of Iran."
