War is coming (and the press is napping)

Here are some new items on the chances and/or likely consequences of a US stike
against Iran: John Bolton claiming that Bush/Cheney will attack Iran before "the
next President" takes over; Mohamed ElBaradei warning that the Middle East will
turn into "a ball of fire" if the US/Israel go through with it (and that, in the event, he will resign as chief of the IAEA); and a harrowing survey, by David DeBatto (a former Army counterintel Special Agent), of the catastrophic consequences for us all if BushCo makes this fatal move.

Now, having read these pieces, take a look at today's New York Times (or Wall Street
Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune or USA Today) or
take a peek at what they're jabbering about on CNN or MSNBC (or FOX), or any of
the nightly network newscasts. What do you see "covered" there?

These are hard times indeed for anyone who isn't in a trance.
