He's crazy, but showing him for what he is, is fear mongering and saber rattling? I bet you would of said the same thing about hitler too?

You need to stop watching all the propaganda....aka, CNN, MSNBC, Fox, cnbc

How many times do we have to go through this exact same thing before people start to look at history and say, "you know...didn't this just happen like 10 years ago? and about 20 times before that...and for some reason we keep falling for it...over and over and over and over again."

But the propaganda you watch is ok?

[-] 1 points by john23 (-272) 8 years ago

no, my information isn't better than everyone elses...but i do get it from many different sources...most of which steer clear of mainstream...but when your only source of information comes from the MSM....you're not getting an adequate diversity of information to make logical decisions. Its been like this for years....and became abundantly obvious during the Bush admin. The media is now owned by a few major corps who control the vast amount of information you see:


Usually the news filters down from these major stations...then works its way into your local news...because hey, if the big guys are talking about it...the little guys take this as gold. Good example of the unity that occurs with this ridiculousness:


Great documentary that goes into many specific examples of how this works if you have some free time:

Every news agency has an agenda, don't be fooled to think any of them are unbiased. The only question is which form of biased do you want to belive.

[-] 1 points by john23 (-272) 8 years ago

Not the same one that has fooled the american people with the same BS for the last 60 years.

There are ones that tend to provide facts...and data....rather than just make stuff up.

[-] -3 points by podman73 (-652) 8 years ago

They tend to provide data and facts that bolster there point. They all tend to make stuff up on an attempt o get the story out first. It's all about speed not acc.

Leave Iran alone, and Iran will leave you alone.

I agree, let's give 'em nukes.

They forgot to mention the Fordo enrichment facility near Qom is buried in the side of a hill.

A. Why go to all the trouble of manufacturing 20% enriched uranium for medical purposes in an impenetrable bunker?

B. Why protect the site with anti aircraft missles?

C. Why does Israel go to the trouble to sabotage nuclear sites and kill nuclear scientists?

[-] 3 points by john23 (-272) 8 years ago

Israel has been trying to pick a fight for years....when Iran falls they a major step closer to being the superpower of the middle east. Oh, did i mention oil?

[-] 1 points by jrhirsch (4714) from Sun City, CA 8 years ago

Did Israel also try to pick fights with Syria and Iraq when it blew up their reactors? Israel's actions are consistent with a nation preemptively disarming an opponents nuclear threat.

Israel has a unique situation. They are a tiny country. One nuke over Tel Aviv could take out close to half the entire countries' population.

"Syria and Iraq"....what does that have to do with Iran?

And i'm pretty sure 200 nukes from Israel would thoroughly destroy Iran too...Not to mention Israels assistance from America and its allies.
