1 year post Gaza, 3 years post Lebanon, 7 years post Iraq, 9 years post Afghanistan - the masters of war are at it again. This time, Iran: whipping up the familiar frenzy, demonizing the country with colonial propaganda, driveling for their oil. From the other side: - Daily: not-so-veiled Israeli threats to attack Iran. - 2008, Pres.Candidate McCain flippantly singing "bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb bomb Iran...". - 2008, Hillary Clinton stating "We will obliterate Iran..." (presumably including their 15 million children under 14) - 1980's: The West supplying Saddam Hussein with weapons and support for his war against Iran. - 1953: US and UK toppling Iranian Prime Minister Mossadegh. - Frequently: Israel and their arsenal of WMD, attacking their muslim neighbours and occupees, grabbing Palestinian land, killing civilians. Now, who should feel more threatened?
