    Dear all, Under pressure, mainly politically originated, a population is always keen to go for a global war, whatever the consequences would be, for itself and for others. Iran going nuclear for peaceful use, which I am sure of, is a good thing. Iran, going military afterwards is definitely not. Would any war avoid that? I am again convince of the answer: NO! Did any hard liner from any side (Israel, Palestinians, Iran, US, etc...) would ever try to go for peace? No chance. Keeping people afraid is their only hope to keep in the business! So what is left? Democracy! Show up friends! Get the people to talk! While they are talking to each other, the hardliners cannot keep their stances, and finally are dismissed. Israelis and their neighbours are sharing a huge piece of world history. They also are able to share peace. Do not give up! Try peace! By going that direction, the population in many countries in middle east will not elect hard liners anymore... making war stupid! Cheers

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
