Is Iran a threat to the US? US intelligence repeatedly found Iran is NOT making a bomb or is a threat. Likewise states Israeli intelligence and some of its military. A larger threat is North Korea which has bombs and has exported its expertise. Have we obliterated them? India and Pakistan have bombs, with US assistance. Was that a good idea?

The Israeli lobby exerts inordinate pressure on our government and media, twisting arms and using threats toward its goals. It does not often act in US interests.

An attack - by the US or Israel - on Iran will result in a concentrated and devastating response against Israel. That is because they know that the war was triggered by Israel. It is possible then that Israel will retaliate using nuclear weapons.

Millions would die. Israel is playing with fire.

O God, please rid the world of Zionists.

All is true except the end; fanatical, suicidal Zionists. At least half of the Israeli population is moderate and does not seek war. The fanatics are in control.

Silence is death. And far too many people who want to stop the Washington DC financed Zionist war machinery remain silent in the face of all their warmongering. The thing to do is to write letters to your Congressional representatives and to the White House --- DEMAND that all warmongering stop or that you will vote for some alternative party.

There is no alternative party.
