Would You Support an Iran War If …

Would You Support a War Against Iran If You Knew the True Facts?

Would you support a war against Iran if you knew that:

  • The CIA admits that the U.S. overthrew the moderate, suit-and-tie-wearing, Democratically-elected prime minister of Iran in 1953. He was overthrown because he had nationalized Iran’s oil, which had previously been controlled by BP and other Western oil companies. As part of that action, the CIA admits that it hired Iranians to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its prime minister
  • If the U.S. hadn’t overthrown the moderate Iranian government, the fundamentalist Mullahs would have never taken over. (Moreover, the U.S. has had a large hand in strengthening radical Islam in the Middle East by supporting radicals to fight the Soviets and others)
  • The U.S. armed and supported Iraq after it invaded Iran and engaged in a long, bloody war which included the use of chemical weapons. Here is former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld meeting with Saddam Hussein in the 1980′s, several months after Saddam had used chemical weapons in a massacre:

  • The U.S. helped fund Iran’s nuclear program

  • The U.S. has been actively planning regime change in Iran – and throughout the oil-rich Middle East and North Africa – for 20 years
  • The decision to threaten to bomb Iran was made before 9/11
  • Top American and Israeli military and intelligence officials say that – even if Iran did build a nuclear bomb – it would not be that dangerous, because Israel and America have so many more nukes. And see this
  • The people pushing for war against Iran are the same people who pushed for war against Iraq, and said it would be a “cakewalk”. See this and this

    Israel has 300 nuclear war heads and U.S. has about 4,000 plus nuclear war heads, for Israel to claim that Iran is a threat (Iran may have or may not have the capability to build a nuclear bomb) to Israel or even U.S. is ludicrous.

    The warmongering Israel is criminal insane!

    • TD

      Whether a country has 1 or 1000 nukes, a weapon like that in the hands of ahmadineNUTJOB could prove disastrous for the World. Iran needs to be stopped at all costs… and they will be.

      • kerston

        The decision if there was a nuke would not be in the hands of Ahmedinejad. People here don’t even know how the government of Iran works much less how Ahmedinejad thinks. Only the propagande we are fed. Do some research and you will find out Ahmedinejad never threatened to wipe Israel off the map. I dare you to find out what he really said and what context it was in. There was no threat. In fact the words Israel, wipe, nor map were even used. Face it our government, politicians and media LIE ! They aren’t protecting you they are using you for their own agenda and profit !

      • Peter Skeeter

        Disastrous for the world? Question mark. Says a guy from a country policing the world. 4,000 nukes in the hands of a hand-picked establishment president is more of a threat to the world than Iran. If you want a war, drive the Israelis out of Israeli occupied Palestine. And also if you want a war..I suppose you’d like to be the one doing the fighting. Don’t wish for war unless you have already fought one, or are willing to die for an unjust cause. Or even die at the hands of the Chinese or Russians. You American people are hopeless.

        • tim

          Israel is so small that just a couple of nukes hit them and they cease to exist. They cannot allow iran to have the bomb

          • Reykool

            TIM : ridiculous comment, Iran is against the ZIONIST RACIST APARTHEID ISRAELI GOVERNMENT POLICIES TOWARD THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE, SO AS REPRISALS AHMADINEJAD WOULD NUKE ISRAEL ( A SMALL COUNTRY INDEED) KILLING ALL THE PALESTINIANS IN THE PROCESS … YOUR OBVIOUS HATE AND FEAR OF MUSLIMS PROMOTED BY ZIONIST PROPAGANDA MAKE YOU BRAINLESS AND BLIND.
            ISRAEL HAS MORE THAN 200 NUCLEAR MISSILES (in violation of international law while refusing to sign the NTP unlike Iran), WE THE US HAVE MORE THAN 6000 NUKES ANY IDIOT WOULD KNOW THAN ATTACKING ISRAEL WOULD MEAN SUICIDE …
            AGAIN YOU HAVE BEEN, LIKE THE REST OF THE AMERICAN IDIOTS, MANIPULATED BY THE ZIONIST CONTROLLED PRESS AND THE INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES FROM UK USA AND ISRAEL WHICH ARE PLANNING TO DESTROY IRAN FOR DECADES, THEY ARE SPREADING THE SAME LIES ABOUT WMDs LIKE THEY DID FOR IRAQ … TO SERVE AN AGENDA WHICH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PROTECTING THE JEWISH POPULATION BUT TO MAINTAIN AN EMPIRE IN THE REGION IN DIVIDING AND DESTABILIZING THE MUSLIM COUNTRIES’ using NATO forces and a coalition of US UK ISRAELI….
            Just to show you how ignorant you are , here a FACT :
            The LARGEST Jewish community in the Middle East Beside Israel happen to be IRAN , so you can see how hypocritical the Zionist controlled US and Israel can be…We will not hesitate to bomb Iranian Nuclear plants , releasing huge amount of toxic nuclear waste (Fukushima is nothing compare to what will happen if we bomb Iran Nuclear Energy plants) in the air endangering lives of ten of thousands of Iranian Jews (not to mention the rest of the Middle Eastern population including Israel) in the name of “Saving” Jews and Israel….
            GO BACK TO FOX NEWS Good night & Good luck
            Peace
            Because War is a racket but I know you don’t care you are counting on others to risk their lives for you.

        • Budro

          NOT ALL of us Americans are like that brother. Having served for over ten years in 2 different branches of our Military, I can say that with confidence. Those doing the war mongering are the ones who profit from it, and who also control the corperate media. The people of this country, the 99 percent, want nothing more to do with war. We are tired of being lied to, our family members sent into unprovoked wars based upon lies, against boogiemen who have been DEAD for years, and upon “False Flag” acts of terorisim perpetuated by our own elected officials against our own people, designed to stear public oppinion to serve their agendas.

          Shall I go on?

          • what the

            lol 99 percent…what a joke. More like the .002% communists who would like you to believe you are the majority. I mean honestly, if you’re going to make an argument, try not to use propaganda slogans like “99 percent.”

            ooooo the “corperate” media!!! Another “you’re not too bright” illustration: you can’t even spell corporate. But besides that, care to share some facts there sparky? ooohhh I’m sure you just mean “Fox News” because all the other outlets are also communists.

            lol unprovoked wars… Well hey man, go hang out in Egypt dude! I here they are the nicest people EVAH! And if Iran is sooo cool, go apply for citizenship.

            You’re just another pathetic low IQ moron who is barfing out lefty communist hate-yourself-you-dirty-American propaganda.

          • moneytracker

            I think you are confusing pacifism with desire to avoid war. Very few people want war, but fewer will say to avoid war at any cost (pacifist philosophy). The decision for most of us is whether we will step forward and say that an evil must be stopped, or ignore its unpleasantness and hope it goes away by itself.

I love this country; and what it USED to be; but face it; we’ve been high -jacked by a thoroughly corrupt government and people. This is NOT our fathers and grandfathers United States of America. We have morphed into something hideous i don’t even recognize anymore. A sad time for the once mighty U.S.

      • LocalHero

      • Vincent Ferrer

        If you are an American you should start asking why is US policy in the Middle East and against Iran made in Israel? And perhaps you should read a bit of history and stop listening to the propaganda of Israel and the USA….If we went by the “it is possible that….or this” the USA would continue to kill millions of innocent people as it has already done!

      • Reykool

        What an ignorant comment, the last time Iran invaded another country was 200 Years ago, We cannot say that for the US UK or Israel .The last time they were at war, it was against Saddam Hussein who attacked and started to bomb Iran while we were financing and training the Iraqi army , and sold Saddam poison gas in 1986 to dump on Iran ,instead Saddam Hussein a former CIA asset during the late 60′s and who later became a US puppet dictator used it against his own people.
        ISRAEL with its 200 Nuclear missiles in violation of international laws and who never sign the Non Proliferation Treaty NTP) is the ONLY MAJOR THREAT to peace in the region NOT Iran .
        Your ridiculous paranoiac Zionist brain washed mind motivated by hate and fear of Muslims don’t even make sense If Iran who represents no threat to the United States wanted to “Nuke” Israel they would have done it a long time ago because PAKISTAN a much more unstable country HAS MORE THAN SIXTY nuclear missiles and NOTHING happened…(remember Bin Laden the “Evil Terrorist” was in Pakistan for almost 10 years) IF I FOLLOW YOUR RIDICULOUS THEORY….
        The fact is, ONLY one country in the world want to bomb Iran pretending that Iran is a Dangerous country it is ISRAEL war mongers fascists likudists who don’t even represents their own people..
        REMEMBER : ZIONISM IS NOT JUDAISM.
        Ahmadinejad wants the ZIONIST REGIME removed NOT THE JEWS OR ISRAEL….REGIME CHANGE …NOT “WIPING OFF THE MAP” LIKE OUR ZIONIST CONTROLLED NEWS MEDIA IS REPEATING OVER AND OVER WITHOUT CHECKING THE SOURCES. I have the original text in farsi language …Educate Yourself demanding a regime change is not asking for the destruction of the country..Many Americans want the Obama regime out it does not mean wiping the US off the map…Ahmadinejad is very consistent with his position toward the Israeli Government and its Apartheid policies toward Palestinians so I am wondering why American idiots still believe that Ahmadinejad would Nuke Israel killing all the Palestinians in the process… it make NO SENSE !
        Iran has the largest Jewish population in the Middle East beside Israel, (13.000 or more) and it shows how criminal hypocrites the Zionists (American and Israelis) are, because they will not hesitate to kill Iranian Jews in bombing the country especially if they bomb the Nuclear plants releasing in the atmosphere huge amount of toxic nuclear radio active material in the process which probably will poison Iran and Israel when the the wind blow in their direction…
        Fox news and Zionist propaganda victims I feel sorry for you.
        Peace because war is a racket

        • Terry Wolfe

          Over the course of 2011, 680 rockets, mortars and Grad missiles were fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel.[1] So Reykool, who is waging war against Israel?? All of those rockets are supplied by Iran. Iran uses their oil tankers to smuggle weapons into Lebanon and the Gaza Strip. To do what?? Every School in Israel has a bunker built on the play ground so the kids can run for cover in a missile attack. If you talk to the Palestinians that live in Jerusalem, they will tell you one on one that they do not want to be ruled by Hamas/Fatah or any other Palestinian led government. They feel more secure under Jewish rule. If you go back to the 1948 Arab-Israel War, you will find alot of finger pointing on who was responsible for the evacuation of the palestinians and the destruction of over 359 towns and villages occupied by the Palestinian people. But then you look at the ambitions of Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, and Jordan during this period it would make you believe that they could care less about the Palestinian people and were more concerned about securing portions of Palestine for themselves. King Abdullah I had several secret meetings with Israel and was attempting to expand Jordan’s territories and achieve a sea port for Jordan. But if we go back and read the old testament, we will see that this region has been fought over for thousands of years. This area was the promised land that God gave Moses during the exodus. This promise land was occupied by several different people groups and Joshua and Caleb routed these people groups from this land over a period of years. In fact if you read the old testament and the boundaries defined by God, the Jewish people never reached the specified boundaries. The reason there are so many Jews in Iran and Iraq was due to the invasions by the Babylonians, the Medes, and the Persians. They destroyed Jerusalem, and the Temple, hauled off the wealth and took prisoner many Jewish subjects. While we can cry all we want about the Palestinian peoples plight, I can show you how the Jews have been persecuted by the Germans, Russians, Medes, Persians, Babylonians, Phillistines, Assyrians, and the list goes on. Based on the prophesies in the Bible, I can say with certainty, it ain’t over yet. Good and evil will continue to clash on the battlefield until Jesus returns to defeat Satan and establish his kingdom on earth. Even the rise of the Anti-Christ or as the Muslims call the 12 Emom, will be due to wars and rumors of wars. People will be tired of the violence and will be starving for someone to bring peace between the Jews, Christians, and the Muslims. We will give up our personal freedoms and our sovereignty to obtain a false sense of peace. We will turn from God and look towards man for a solution that will be only temporary at best. Sinful man will never learn that he needs a savior in order for him to achieve a perfect peace. Jesus Christ was and is the answer but we refuse to accept him. In the end when we have pretty well destroyed everything, we will rescue humanity one final time.

          • Colin Smith

            “evacuation” of the Palestinian people in 1948. So that’s what happened at Deir Yessin. And I thought it was a massacre. So 850,000 Palestinians were “evacuated” from their villages, not ethnically cleansed, which is what the respected Israeli historian Ilan Pappe called it, basing his research on IDF records. Sad how one word gives away all that bias. After that it descends into incomprehensible farce.

  • El MiAtZi

    Is there an article suggesting somwhere that the the wars both overt and covert in MENA are about REDUCING (not controlling, per say) the availibility of crude that is for sale in the market?

    I mean, what if, the US & Co. were not really going for the oil in Iraq, Libya… Iran (next up), rather they decided that the supply of oil from these countris should be terminated, hence, leaving only those sources of crude which belong to allied regimes, like Saudi, Kuwait, etc.

    The US-Dollar is losing its reserve status and they are now going for control of the only commodity that really matters, a la, One ring to rule them all.

    Of the top 10 oil exporters, only Russia and Iran are antagonistic towards US & Co.

    If Iran has to be brought down it must be done before they develop nuclear capability or they will join the lonely member of the club of untouchable crude oil exporters i.e. Russia.

    I threw this idea at a couple of friends and they were of the opinon that at 150$ – 200$ (perhaps much more if the Strait of Hormuz is closed) a barrel the world economies would be crushed. To which my response was, they already are, who is really trying to save these economies anyways? And can they be saved? I dont think so, there will be a complete economic reset at some point anyways.

    The U.S. overthrew the moderate government of Iran in 1953, allowing more radical Shiite muslims to take over. The U.S. overthrew the moderate Sunni government of Iraq recently(under false pretenses of them obtaining WMD’s), putting a Shiite muslim regime in power. This has created a solid line of Shiite muslim controlled countries from Iran to the Mediterranean Sea(good job, U.S.)! We Americans need to wake up and smell the coffee. Our government is not acting in our best interest. The Israeli government’s U.S. lobbying group, AIPAC, practically owns most members of our congress with the 10 billion hard earned U.S. taxpayer dollars that we given them every year! Congress votes to give our money to Israel, Israel gives part of it back to U.S. Congressmen. This has to stop! We need to vote to make monetary gifts to U.S. Congressmen illegal. Then, hopefully only people who are actually interested in serving our country will come to power.

    • jim evans

      Actually a good part of the money Israel gets goes to U S defense contractors to buy weapons which create more jobs in the U S. Without this money many U S defense contractors would have to reduce staff which would have a staggering effect on the US economy.

        I have a better idea, why don’t we invest those billions in colonizing the moon and mining the asteroids, or harvesting hydrogen from space or better europa or titan. but that’s too big for the small minds that think that we need to be killing each other in the name of what? how about MONEY.

  • Michael

    Your number 1 statement that Iran has one of the largest Jewish populations is totally misleading.
    Yes they are 27th on the list but with 10,400 Jews I hardly think you can use that statistic. As they say, “If you torture the data long enough it will confess to anything.” That is exactly what the government does to mislead us.

  • Grunt

    ISRAEL WANTS WAR WITH IRAN, and their lobby controls much of the US government through huge Jewish political contributions.

    We’ll be lucky to stay out of a war with Iran, considering the political power of those pushing for it. Israel and their backers want American soldiers, not Israeli soldiers, to fight that war.

    When will America wake up to this con game?

    • what the

It was a gross misinterpretation. Like they say if you repeat a lie over and over people will believe it and the politicians and the media have been repeating that one since 2005. Read the IAEA report too and find out that there is NO evidence of Iran even trying to build a weapon. Hmm no threatening words and no weapon. Still want war?

        WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME THE US UK OR ISRAEL INVADED ANOTHER COUNTRY ? WHO IS AGGRESSING WHOM ?
        Now to show you how ignorant you are here the original text in farsi language translated in English for You (Ahmadinejad famous comment on Israel can be found on Google as well) :

        REGIME CHANGE DOES NOT MEAN WIPING THE COUNTRY OFF THE MAP…..Rather than believing Zionist propaganda on Zionist controlled American news papers CHECK THE SOURCES….
        ISRAEL AND THE US HAVE NO WEAPONS AND THREATENING WORDS EITHER RIGHT ? SO WE ARE AT PEACE FOR THE PAST TEN YEARS RIGHT ? WAR IS PEACE (I heard this before… 1984 )
        AMERICAN IDIOTS STILL DON’T GET IT : IRAN IS TARGETED BY THE ISRAELI WAR MONGERS , ZIONIST LIKUDISTS FANATICS WHO BOUGHT OUR GOVERNMENT AND NEWS MEDIA FOR DECADES…
        IF IRAN WANTED TO “NUKE” ISRAEL WHY WOULD THEY WAIT SO LONG ?
        TO ALLOW NATO TO BOMB THEM FIRST THIS MONTH ? YOU ARE A GENIUS KERSTON …NOT TO MENTION THAT IF THEY BOMB ISRAEL THEY WOULD KILL ALL THE PALESTINIANS IN THE PROCESS , A SMALL DETAIL FORGOTTEN BY THE WAR MONGERS MORONS .
        BUT IF YOU BELIEVE THIS GARBAGE ABOUT IRAN MAY BE YOU BELIEVE THAT IRANIAN “NUKES” WILL TARGET ONLY “JEWS” ….
        ANTI SEMITE NUKES….YES THAT THE WAY TO GO BIG GENIUS !
        WHICH COUNTRY IN THE MIDDLE EAST HAS THE MOST AMOUNT OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN VIOLATION OF INTERNATIONAL LAWS ?
        ISRAEL : 200 OR MORE…
        Even if Iran had one Nuke what is the big deal PAKISTAN has more than SIXTY and that is where Osama Bin Laden was living for the past TEN Years.
        (according to our Government liars)
        IRAN signed the NTP (Non Proliferation Treaty) unlike Israel therefore IRAN has the RIGHT to develop Atomic Energy WHILE BEING REGULARLY INSPECTED BY THE IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) Who do you think are working inside the IAEA ? Choir Boys ? IAEA is loaded with CIA and MOSSAD MI6 agents…..THEY KNOW THE FACTS ….
        But of course their goal is DESTRUCTION of IRAN so they will never tell you ALL the facts.
        For the Morons out there who question the Intelligence Agencies : here some details LEARNING TIME : there are different levels of CLEARANCE : TOP SECRET, TS-SCI (Sensitive compartmented Information) SAP ( Special access program) USAP (unacknowledged Special access program) CCM (compensatory Control measures) not to mention Private contractors who undermine the system….for more info:

    A total Jewish population of only 10,400 out of an estimated global population of 33 million is your idea of “one of the largest Jewish populations in the world?” Ha! Ha! Ha!

After 1948 any Jew with a working brain left whatever Middle Eastern country they were living in…or else. They’re protected by the Iranian Constitution? Oooooooh! That one goes right up there with the “freedom of religion” clause found in the old Soviet Constitution. Read the book “Tortured for Christ” by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand to see how great Christians had it behind the Iron Curtain. Jews are guaranteed seats in the Iranian parliament? Who cares? The last time I checked, Iran was a totalitarian theocracy run by mullahs. The parliament just rubber-stamps their edicts. The U.K./U.S. overthrew Mohammed Mossadegh in 1953? You are referring, of course, to Operation Ajax. News flash: that was over 58 years ago. All the principals are dead, and by now so are most of their children. Get over it. Your contention the Islamists would never have come to power in Iran had it not been for the CIA is pure speculation. The Shah was overthrown in part because of Western-style reforms he tried to implement. Mossadegh would have undoubtedly encountered the same recalcitrance. The U.S. armed and supported Iraq after it invaded Iran? Yeah, so? Germany under the Kaiser aided and abetted Lenin and the Bolsheviks in overthrowing the Czar during WW1. No one wants to remember that one. Ayatollah Khomeini was trying to spread his version of radical Islam in the Middle East (as his successors are trying to do today). The U.S. attempted to use Hussein to stop him because our leaders have learned the hard way there are many areas of the world where Western-style democracy simply will not work. It’s called “realpolitik”. It happens all the time. Oh and by the way, the last time I checked, the future by its very nature is unknowable. Pax.

      TIGLATH PILESER III You ARE IGNORANT
      AHMADINEJAD GREW UP UNDER THE SHAH ‘s REGIME SO GUESS WHY HE IS SO HOSTILE TO ZIONISTS IDIOTS LIKE YOU. EDUCATE YOURSELF AND FIND OUT WHY ISRAEL IS A CANCER IN THE MIDDLE EAST….ZIONISM IS NOT JUDAISM
      Check : http://www.ifamericansknew.org
      It is only American idiots and war profiteers who always want War because they don’t have to fight it, they count on somebody else do to their dirty work…
      This idiotic concept of Ahmadinejad “Nuking” Israel to punish them for their miss treatment of Palestinians is a Joke, because if you Nuke Israel you would kill all the Palestinians in the process but the Zionists are so blinded by their hate and ethnocentrism than they don’t even think about it…In the mean time Israel has 200 Nuclear missiles in violation of international law and refused to sign the Non Proliferation Treaty (NTP) Pakistan a far more unstable country than Iran has more than SIXTY Nukes for more than TEN years ….the Zionists Muslim haters don’t even mention this fact How come Israel was not “nuked” for all these years ?
      The “Evil Muslim Terrorists” are not that suicidal after all….
      WE HAVE MORE THAN 6000 NUKES FOR THEM,….War mongers Morons out there !

    I think its all saber rattling. A war with Iran would cause oil prices to skyrocket which would cripple the World economy let alone the US economy. The answer to this is develop nat gas as a primary energy source and become energy independent. Quit worrying about who attacks who over there, quit protecting Israel(they can protect themselves), and reign in our aid to foreign countries. If some nation acts up in an aggressive way, we contribute to a UN solution that punishes the aggressor. Iran probably feels they have a right to be nuclear just as Pakistan and India have become. That is not illogical. Mutually assured destruction does work.

  • brad

    we pulled out of the vietnam war.WE did not loose.With more of our public behind the war we would have won and all those lives wouldnt have been lost for nothing.God what a wast.WE started a job we didnt finish

    • hawgfarmer

      You are correct ,Brad. People who say we “lost” the vietnam war should read the book “Unheralded Victory”. The NVA reinvaded the South after all U.S combat troops had been withdrawn.

      • Colin Smith

        Suck it up Yanks. You got your asses royally whipped. As you did in Lebanon,Mogadishu,etc. There has to be a national will to fight for you to win, which was absent over Vietnam, Mogadishu and Lebanon. As the Germans and Russians said in WW2, Americans can’t take casualties. You have to have overwhelming superiority in firepower before you go in. (drone warfare is about your size) When was the last time you fought a military of the same size? Then you’d get really whipped. FYI the Vietnamese would never have given up. They had been fighting for 2,000 years against one invader or another. The US would have bled and bled, for no purpose other the vanity of a superpower.

  • brad

    another note-this country is going to shit.

  • Lee Allen

    A compelling article until a person thinks about the writer’s points. For examples. Iran has a tiny Jewish population, only a few thousand. What the USA did in 1953 or even in thee 1980s, right or wrong for the times, is old news and does not define what we should do today about today’s situation in Iran. Of course, America has been unhappy with the governments in the middle east for a long time, no news there. And yes, Israel has nukes, but they have not used them. Iran would use them if they had them. Israel is so small that it wouldn’t take too many nukes getting through to destroy that country. Who knows how close Iran is to having nukes and once they do how long should the world wait for them to use them? Could attacking Iran lead to global recession, maybe, but Iran’s nukes raining down on Israel would panic world financial markets. Which kind of disaster is worse, I don’t know. We all suspect that someday Nukes are going to go off in the middle east, so the best we can hope is that event is a long time from now.

  • Dan

    The sad facts of today is if you hear it from the media, politicians, and internet it is bullshit! So who does know the facts? the Locals? Do we know the facts of our own state or national history? And the final question, Is it our business? We have the capability of punishing ANYONE for attacking us. So why in the hell doesn’t Iran or any one else for that matter. Every people, Every individual has the right to protect themselves from aggression, even ours!

  • JD F

    OK from what the two main leaders of Iran have said about the destruction of Isreal and U.S. I do support an attack on Iran and the sooner the better.I don’t like war but if Iran is going to be bombed it should be done now before they process anymore Nuclear Material.I mean if people have to die wouldn’t it be wiser to attack while stockpile is low and less fallout.Hit them hard (nuclear sites) and then warn Iran next strike wouldn’t be just nuclear sites.But no threat is good unless you are willings to back it up and they have to know you are willing to follow thru.Of course gas prices will rise,what’s the difference.They are rising now and will keep going up till this is over with.So the sooner we get on with bussiness the quicker oil prices fall back down.All that history is just that History,we have to live for today.

    • Colin Smith

      Mindless bully. No wonder the US is hated around the world. How come it’s America’s business what happens in the Middle East. Better if you go home and defend your own country from behind your borders. You weren’t in such a hurry to get into WW1 or WW2. You waited to see if Britain would survive the Battle of Britain before getting involved. Had Germany invaded the British Isles you’d have done business with the Nazis with the same alacrity as your major capitalists like Prescott Bush, Henry Ford, Joe Kennedy, JP Morgan, etc did. A nation of bullshitters. You give Israel $3 billion a year gratis, but made sure Britain paid every penny of Lend-Lease back.

  • persian

    people of iran dont like war… but when they face to soldier from other side the world they have no choice …..in fact in iran 2 person enter future of this country … we are mankind and we like us people and Politicians can not handle us to war tnx

  • http://Washington'sBlog Jarhead

    Most everyone here is somewhat ignorant (not stupid). Ignorance can be cured with a little bit of reading and understanding. Stupid can not. Five Books to cure your political ignorance. (1) The Bible (2) Animal Farm (3) 1984 (4) The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. (5) Atlas Shrugged.
    To cure your ignorance please read all 5 and then you and your posts will be much more enlightened. Semper Fi. God Bless You All. God Bless America.

    • Colin Smith

      The Bible? What’s that got to do with anything? The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich is now dated. There is new info coming out of Russian archives. Not a great reading list at all. Don’t know what the hell “Atlas Shrugged’ is.

  • Mike

    This is where Ahmedinejad called for the annihilation of Israel, very easy to find, there were several other quotes.

    March 11, 2010

    “See what has become of Israel. They [the West] gathered the most criminal people in the world and stationed them in our region with lies and fabricated scenarios. They waged wars, committed massive aggression… and made millions of people homeless…Today, it is clear that Israel is the most hated regime in the world… It is not useful for its masters [the West] anymore. They are in doubt now. They wonder whether to continue spending money on this regime or not…But whether they want it or not, with God’s grace, this regime will be annihilated and Palestinians and other regional nations will be rid of its bad omen.”

    (In a speech in southern Iran).

    • val

      They called for the regime to be annihilated. It’s tit for tat. Israel supports terrorist that have assassinated Iranian government officials and scientist. In fact Israeli officials and Iranian officials have both called the other’s regime a “cancer.”

      It’s childish.

      But it’s not just one sided.

  • The General

    A good video on youtube is the BBC documentary Power of Nightmares. It explains the history of our foreign policy quite thoroughly, and may help us understand the state we are now in more clearly.

  • http://weakness Jérôme TORDO

    the weak are always looking for a fight – waging a war is the best way to disimulate other more dramatic weakness
    I personally do not think that Iran is what we want us to believe – for example Women have more freedom in Iran than they have in the gulf states…
    killing innocent people is the a terrible think – life is king and must be preserved too have been killed in useless war too much pain
    All those politics should be remind that we are just passing by and they are dust in regard of humanity

  • Aussie Bri

    I have been enjoying reading the warring parties waging there little armchair battle
    here in this blog !
    Imagine if our left & right hands where always in conflict – probably wouldn’t be able to even
    scratch our bums! Why be as dumb as the idiots that some of you voted into office?
    Here’s a quote from an old, wise & wealthy American – Doug Casey ( being interviewed)

    I’ve heard you say you think the U.S. is setting Iran up to be the next fall guy in the wag-the-dog show – do you think it could really come to open warfare?

    Doug: Yes, I do. It could just be saber rattling during an election year, but Western powers have been provoking Iran for years now – two decades, really. I just saw another report proclaiming that Iran is likely to attack the U.S., which is about as absurd as the allegations Bush made about Iraq bombing the U.S., when he fomented that invasion. It’s starting to look rather serious at this point, so I do think the odds favor actual fighting in the not-too-distant future.

    L: Could they really be so stupid?

    Doug: You know the answer to that one. We’re dealing with criminal personalities on both sides, and criminals are basically very stupid – meaning they have an unwitting tendency to self-destruction. One thing to remember is that most of those in power in the West still believe the old economic fallacy that war is good for the economy.

    L: The old broken-window fallacy. Paraphrasing Arlo Guthrie, it’s hard to believe anyone could get away with making a mistake that dumb for that long.

    Everyone is barking up the wrong tree, or in this case begging the wrong answers. In selling electricity at home, to the Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Israel – so many problems addressing these nations can be solved and barriers broken down. All of these countries are in dire need of fresh water and electricity.

    though I would rather have seen eco-friendly power production, the opportunity to market their electric power abroad is in Iran’s future.

  • James Gore

    This article is filled with innuendos and unsupported claims about the evil USA and the evil CIA. It fails to mention that the USSR, you know Stalin, occupied northern Iran for 2 years until the evil USA with the help of the evil CIA forced them to withdraw. As usual, the communitsts left behind a network of agents who did skew the elections and there was genuine reason to suspect the “moderate elected” party was already subverted. This happen in Spain in 1936 and again in Eastern Europe just after the war. Containment of the USSR was the reason for these “evil acts”, we did not need the oil. Communist subversion threat was real.

    • val

      Why would the US admit to it if it wasn’t real? Are we in collusion with Russia now?

      How far does your conspiracy theory go? LOL

  • jaweid

    The degree of venom among the war mongers on this (and other) blogsite is matched only by their stubbornness and and in some cases ignorance. I have seen another website which actually sets out all the strategic reasons and purported historical reason underlying the sunni-shia divide as driving Iran’s nuclear ambitions. The purveyors of this info did not even bother to check on historical facts behind the reported events. Reykool is correct — with one minor correction — even under the powerful Khwarizmi dynasty Iran never threatened Arab territories beyond Basra. In fact they routinely aligned with Sunni rulers in confronting repeated Mongol invasions and even gave asylum to a sunni Moghul ruler of India. Sunni Moghuls routinely married into Iranian princely families.
    Iran does NOT present a threat to any Arab nation — only to their ruling elites. The divide has been fanned over the last 30 years after 1979 by Arab ruling lackeys of American – Zionist regimes alliance — note I am not saying American-Jewish people alliances which I believe is quite different in interests and orientation. So, please know your history before pontificating. There is nothing inevitable about the touted war if we stop beating the war drums. Remember the BIGGEST casualties of war are always truth and the ordinary people on both sides — no, on all sides. Let’s ALL pray the war mongers lose out or get exposed for what they are — leeches fattening on human blood.

  • Concerned American

    Blow Iran off the face of the earth – problem solved. How quickly we have forgotten the stormed our Embassy which is an attack on the US and yet Carter, a weak Democratic President like Obama, did nothing. I do fear for our future and pray a Republican, any Republican, wins in 2012 and reminds Iran we have not forgotten and we intend to send them back to Allah.

    • Sam

      So you think they did that for fun!?!!! like “hi guys, what a boring day! let’s storm US embassy and have some fun!”

      I am not saying that they did right!! but you better ask yourself what did americans do in iran that made iranians do that!

    • val

      You want revenge and genocide of an entire people for something some students died over 30 years ago?

      I fear for our future, too. With people like you in this world.

    “The people pushing for war against Iran are the same people who pushed for war against Iraq, and said it would be a “cakewalk”

    Same people who just happen to have last names like “Perle” “Silverstein” “Bolton” “Wolfowitz” “Lieberman” “Feith” “Axelrod” ” Emanuel” “et al”

    Same tribe of Genocidal freaks no less ..Another interesting fact: The Atomic Bomb was created by the very same tribe .. Now; their claims that they have been persecuted “should” theoretically be viewed from an whole new perspective don’t you think ? for i certainly do…

  • val

    For what it is worth, I would like to say to the Iranian people that I’m very sorry for what the American government has done to your country over the years. If America really had the democracy we say we do, I could change it. But we don’t. And I haven’t. But I always defend the Iranian people if anyone ever speaks up against them.

  • zee gujar

    Meh all Bullshet we will see who stops who will Iran stop American terrorism in Asia and middle east and Africa or will USA continue to terrorize
