So will Georgie use the Iran hostage crisis as the reason to declare war on Iran?

I remember November 1979 and the crisis that occurred when a bunch of Iranian University students took hostages at the US embassy. I remember the bird-flipping Mickey Mouse "Hey Ayatollah" posters (that we did not have to hide at school). I, obviously, don't have the image and memories of what it was like to held hostage and have no idea if those five former hostages who have announced they are sure Iran's new President-elect, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was among their captors are right or mistaken. What I do know is that there has been discussion of whether the Bush Administration is planning to invade Iran next and that the Republican Party that keeps up the 9/11 mantra as the reason we had to invade Iraq (despite the evidence) will certainly use this news for some nefarious purpose even if it's not warranted - especially considering the excellent training terrorists are now getting in Iraq.
