Let’s Talk Iran

All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.
George Orwell

Short post tonight about Iran to get us talking.

It’s clear that Iran violated IAEA rules with their secret nuclear facility. It’s not clear that we need to start the drumbeat for war, which I am hearing in the media and from a steady stream of GOP Senators.

It’s the same song and dance as 2003. “They are seeking a nuke… they could know how to build a nuke… they could strike us soon… are ya scared yet?” (dramatization)

Thank goodness the chickenhawks aren’t running the roost any more, and we’re not living with a President who sees war as fulfilling some apocalypse fantasy.

I hope President Obama and our other military and diplomatic leaders can find a way through this Iran mess without starting another war, all while (hopefully) wrapping up two others.

That’s about all I have to say about that. Let ‘er rip in the comments.
