More description:

With the USS Ronald Reagan carrier group about to "surge deploy," Ritter says
"We're on the edge of the abyss....The bottom line is this Congress has so abrogated
its responsibilities of oversight that it has diluted whatever powers it once had to affect
American foreign national security policy. And unless the Congress somehow awakens,
there is no hope of avoiding armed conflict with Iran."

Ritter sees the danger of conflict escalating to a nuclear attack by the US, given that it lacks
sufficient conventional forces to defeat Iran. Congress has approved a policy to consider
the use of nuclear weapons 'preemptively' in a non-nuclear situation.

Congress has given Bush a green light to strike Iran, "and he is going to do so."

Wars against Iraq and Iran are part of a larger US strategy that would eventually include
conflict with Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan, Ritter says.

Why? A main reason is that the US wants to dictate the growth of China and India.
