Must read! -- Great analysis here. I have spoken to the same SEALs as the venerable Ed Asner. My position is very clear. Unless the U.S. and the west intend to commit planetary suicide there will be no attack on Iran now, especially after yesterday's near panic over Iran's threat to cut off oil supplies to much of Europe which is on unsustainable economic life support.
Bashar al-Assad in Syria is making moves to ameliorate the situation. I agree that the recent attacks on Israeli targets might have been false flags. We have no way of knowing for sure at the moment. But it doesn't really matter. Over the last six months we have seen a prefect record of failure for the once tried-and-true methods of global manipulation, lies and terror used by the U.S.
As of this morning the west knows that it has to find another approach... Let's start with reason, honor, and cooperation. Oh... wait a minute. To do that what has to happen next is that we have to rid ourselves of the president and every member of congress. Behaving honorably is not in their DNA. Dinosaurs and scorpions can only be what they are. -- MCR
