What will we do (seriously) in the Iran pre-war run up?
Iran is being blamed for malfeasance in Iraq. This steady drumbeat of blaming Iran
is increasing. It's been reported that we have half of our war ships in or near Middle
Eastern waters.

The neocon mouthpieces injected Iran into their talking points, on all of the Sunday
talk shows last week.

It's begun. They're selling us war with Iran.

I'm just wondering... As this propaganda and marketing blitz sideswipes us, as we
watch the mainstream media--once again--use fear to sell us another unnecessary, lie-based
war----what will we do???

During the Iraq run-up--I was shocked, mystified and saddened. However, I barely did anything
except feel a sense of doom and complain to like-minded friends and relatives.

What happens this time...when America is sold a rotten bill of good this time?

I WILL not--I CAN not--stew in my feelings. I feel compelled to protest. I'll fly
from the Midwest to DC to participate. I'll stand outside the New York Times offices
or the CNN headquarters--and protest.

I just can't imagine America standing around for this round. Does anyone else feel
that they will act more strongly this time around? Can anyone imagine America sitting
on its hand this time?

1. When all voting 97 US Senators vow Iran is committing acts of war against the US,
we all can guess where this is going. Wonder how many US senators would vow any mischief on the part of the good guys wearing the white hats?

2. Whatever we do, it won't matter to the Chimp.
Unless he is forcibly dragged out of the White House, he's not going to listen even if 10 million people show up in D.C.. We're going to war with Iran and all hell is going to break loose here. His cabal must be stopped now, right this second, but no one is going to do it.
