I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Still more administration soft lies

Both George W Bush and Donald Rumsfeld have recently accused Iran of involvement in the Iraqi civil war. These of course are the same individuals who swore Iraq had WMD and a nuclear program. Well as it turns out they have no more proof for the latest accusation.

Top U.S. Military Official: No Evidence of Iran Involvement in Iraq
Marine Corps Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, said today he has no evidence the Iranian government has been sending military equipment and personnel into neighboring Iraq.

On Monday, President Bush suggested Iran was involved in making roadside bombs, known as improvised explosive devices, that are being used in Iraq. And Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld last week accused Iran of sending members of its Revolutionary Guard to conduct operations in Iraq.

Today, Pace, the top U.S. military official, was asked at a Pentagon news conference if he has proof that Iran's government is sponsoring these activities.

"I do not, sir," Pace said.
The Iranian war drums continue to beat. Is this deja vu all over again? It sure looks like it.
