The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are going so well. So why not invade, sorry; ‘strategically bomb’ Iran?
If I had been the caller, I would have considered myself ‘schooled’ by George. What many people don’t realize is that its OK to be wrong sometimes. The caller believes that its OK to bomb a country because it is a ‘threat’ to us. When presented with the facts, he goes back on weaker and weaker knowledge and ‘facts’ to defend his view point. If I had been the caller, and was presented that information, I would have accepted it, and told George that I’d look more into the information he’d given me, and that I’d call him back later and talk more. People are often so wrapped up in themselves that they will defy all logic to make themselves feel better against being wrong. It is OK to be wrong. We learn from our mistakes. The honorable thing to do is to accept the schooling, and say ‘alright, you’ve got a fair point, let me look into it and I’ll get back to you’. That is a far more intelligent way to move forward, rather than to boldly argue in the case of stupidity, when new facts present themselves contrary to your current beliefs.
So why is it that the media goes along with all this new war propaganda? The drums of war were beating against Afghanistan and Iraq before invasion, but they ceased to beat when our young men began being blown to bloody bits, in countries that did not want them there. Only after the bombs fell, did we realize that perhaps it was not such a good idea. Only then did the media begin to review the wars negatively. So what is in it for the media? Are they really so inept to cover the news (the real news), that they will go along with almost any unfolding drama just for a ‘news story’?
WWIII is a planned event:
“Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.” – President Harry S. Truman.
‘If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy’ – James Madison
War and Peace:
US prepares to annihilate Iran:
‘How fortunate that men to not think’ – Adolf Hitler
It is truly terrifying how similar our current candidates speak compared to Hitler. Preemptive strikes, protecting the homeland. Everything they say mirrors Hitler in an eerie way. That is why I say to those on the right; watch out for fascism.
Does it not trouble you that the media attacks the only candidate who is running on freedom and the Constitution?
Even the beloved ‘great great American’ Sean Hannity wants war. Even the infamous Bill O’Reilly panics when Ron Paul points out that we are the ones who are a threat to Iran. He shuts Ron Paul down when he tries to explain it to him. This is why I have no respect for any news network right now. Fox news is no better than CNN or MSNBC. They are all a poison on our conscious. Fox news might say that they are fair and balanced, they might say that they are pro-freedom, but they are simply puppets of the cronyism that is ruining this nation.
The media has an agenda, and each network pushes it from different angles. Fox news is no different. The special interests have poisoned every media organization, and anyone who speaks out against it, has been fired or marginalized.
Anyway, back to the case for bombing Iran:
Look how evil the Iranians are:
I mean just look at them! How evil! How dare they enjoy life! Bomb them, bomb them now!
Oh wait…they’re not evil. Sure their government is a little whacky; which is just like every other government in that case. Why in the hell are we talking about bombing them? If not to destroy their country for ‘our oil’? I’ve said it before, that Iran is not a threat to us, and that we have more than enough oil on our own land. I say leave the Iranians the hell alone, and if Israel wants to start a war, let them, but don’t involve us, let them have their war, and see what happens to them for starting it. Glenn Beck wonders why so many youth don’t practice religion right now, and yet he talks about how evil Iran is and how there is a prophecy and that Iran calls us big Satan and Israel little Satan. Well to Iran that is true…we are satanic in our actions toward them, with all our threats. And prophecies about wars and Jesus returning make you sound like a nut case. The youth are not stupid. Many are misguided, and many are mis-educated, and you can thank many of Glenn’s generation for that. Thank god he is doing something to correct that, but he really needs to wake up on his foreign policy stance. Glenn, not everyone is Christian, I know you say that you respect all religions, but its not coming off that way. Your book about George Washington heavily sided with divine providence. While that may be true, that doesn’t mean that everyone should be christian or that the founding fathers wanted this to be a christian nation.
Jesse Ventura is right, religion has caused most of the past wars, and continues to fuel new wars.
When are we going to stop naked wars of aggression and go back to defensive policy only?
Why are we busy protecting ‘holy sites’ and starting ‘holy wars’ and not respecting others ‘holy sites’ and cowering from their threats of ‘holy wars’? Don’t you see how stupid all this is? I’ll side with Charlie Chaplin, and say that ‘the kingdom of god is within man, not one man, nor a group of men, but in all men’ and in that case it should not matter where you practice religion, nor what historical buildings you have. Respect one another and let bygones be bygones.
Here are the consequences to expect if we do start a war with Iran, and bombing Iran is an act of war:
Now I’ll bet I’ve done a great job alienating the few subscribers that I currently have. But I’m not in this for some popularity contest. I said from the very first post that I would expose the truth. And in this post, I’ll say this: Anyone who thinks that bombing Iran is a good idea, or that it is in our best national interests is NUTS!
