Why I Oppose War With Iran

War with Iran Would Be Disastrous

Israeli prime minister Netanyahu and a number of U.S. Congress members warn that peace with Iran would be catastrophic.

Are they right?

We think the mullahs in Iran are assholes (we also think fundamentalist Christians, Hindus, Buddhists and Jews are assholes). In fact, most Iranians are moderates who don’t like how fundamentalist the mullahs are.

But Iran isn’t the danger the hawks would have you believe …

Let’s look at the facts:

  • Contrary to widespread claims, there is that Iran is building a nuclear weapon.  Even Israel that Iran has not decided to build a nuclear bomb.
  • The U.S. helped fund Iran’s nuclear program

  • that Iran poses very little threat to the West or Israel . 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 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 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
  • Hawks in the U.S. government been pushing for another round of regime change in Iran for decades
  • 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
  • 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)

    Good article.
    People everywhere are against the war and are waking up to the reality that those that beat the drum loudest are the war mongers. –

  • truth

    I feel like something is missing from this article, although you did mention it in another one:


    Iran has a beautiful landscape and history and people. That is what they want to destroy.



    There used to be a short music video on youtube, with someone’s music about not going to war Iran with pictures from there, but I can’t find it anymore.

    -Iran is one of the top science nations in the muslim world

    -among top 10 in nanotech worldwide
    – 60-70 of univ. students are female, women drive cars, the sharia law boundaries are constantly pushed there (without public executions, as in KSA)
    -thousand year old civilization, in fact, one of the oldest on earth
    – no AQ or ISIS

    – does not fund international terrorist attacks, AFAIK (at least not like worlds largest sunni terrorism financier KSA, see wikileaks)

  • This is why I oppose it from the power hungry themselves and besides war makes us all poor!

    General Wesley Clark: Wars Were Planned – Seven Countries In Five Years

    “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” I said, “Is it classified?” He said, “Yes, sir.” I said, “Well, don’t show it to me.” And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, “You remember that?” He said, “Sir, I didn’t show you that memo! I didn’t show it to you!”

  • Feb 27, 2015 Iran: Church Planting with Padina

    Padina was ready to kill herself on live TV to earn Allah’s favor and prove the God of the Christians was powerless. Instead, she met Jesus Christ and saw Him heal her mother from sickness. She became passionate to introduce her countrymen to the Savior.

    All this information is from the White House propaganda quack… These are the same people that told us a video caused our Benghazi Ambassador to be killed.

    This is about nuclear and economic hegemony for Isreal in the Middle East. Period.
