    you do realize that's not even an argument. ?

    seriously, I could post death by car accidents v death by Al Qaeda and argue that we need to be waging war on automobiles with that logic.

    You know those wars will commence as soon as he's re-elected, yes?

Sun not rise in east.

    hint: it is not iran
    People on this board have swallowed the entire pro-war Big Brother propaganda narrative. The same people probably supported the Iraq war, like Hillary Clinton. Anyone who tells you that Iraq was a threat, and was a successful, worthwhile war is lying to themselves and everyone else. The Iran nuke threat is just the same lies as Bush/Colin Powell/Cheney told about Iraq.

    Shock and Awe
    by Gary Corseri


    "They told us it would be over soon;
    They told us it would save our lives.
    But our children’s eyes hardened like peach pits.
    More years passed than our youth.

    They told us we needed more and more—
    More cars, more “house,” more lovers, more money.
    And we followed like rats on a treadmill
    Cascading through a labyrinth.

    We could not remember the unpronounceable names
    Of battlefields, special ops, psy ops—the droned lands.
    They told us we killed far more of their fathers.
    And we rubbed that balm like salt in our wounds.

    They cloaked themselves in our gory flag.
    They went to our games, ate hot dogs… cheered!
    Our warriors shone in their feral eyes.
    They consoled us and wept with us, dribbling lies.

    They told us we needed more and more,
    Then shipped our livelihoods elsewhere."

    (more)

    It would make as much sense, and be about as effective.

    We rarely get honesty from the Rand Corp, which I consider a govmnt/nazi front organization.

    Is there still hope to stop all the NeoCon policies of Obomber and the killing?

    you misrepresent what the iranians say
    that happens quite frequently to iran, it seems

    they did not say they refused to negotiate
    in fact they have agreed to participate in negotiations
    but iran has put the 5+1 on notice that it will not concede its right to develop nuclear capacity as a sovereign nation
    and that is a very rational stance


    what is unrational is the US being pushed into assaulting a peaceful nation, one without nuclear armaments, and one which has signed the nuclear non-proliferation treaty
    and that pushing is being orchestrated by an aggressively militant country which possesses a nuclear arsenal, but which refuses to agree to the provisions of the NPT
