No one is talking about starting a war with Iran. The only thing being discussed is a surgical strike on Iran's nuclear facilities similar to Osirik in 1981 or Syria last year. This shows just how pathetic the Sixties generation is. Despite all their whining about Iraq (in which we suffered less than 10% of the casualties in Vietnam, and without draftees) that war is successfully winding down. So now they need a new bogeyman. Pathetic. Simply pathetic.

I might show up to support the use of military force as an option.

Thanks for the heads up!

Have a great day.

thank god less than six months to go till the end of "cowboy diplomacy". isn't it odd that nuclear power is touted as the answer to our energy problems but is also a reason for international tensions and possibly war? Iran will just be another distraction created by the worst/criminal administration to divert the attention of the people and the media. why doesn't the idiot-in-chief get asked every day "where's osama?. could the fact that he comes from a prominant saudi oil family have anything to do with it?

War with Iran is inevitable.

Iran will see to that.

Peace at all costs is an atrocity.
It allows evil to spread unchecked.
Wake up people.
There ARE things worth fighting for.

Yes to NO WAR IN IRAN. But that is not nearly as imminent as a war in Afghanistan. The slaughter of American troops would be unbearable. We MUST do all in our power to prevent more troops being sent there. STOP THE WAR IN AFGHANISTAN BY STOPPING OBAMA, who wants to expand the fighting there.

Who is going to be the guest of honor? Women rights activists from Iran, or perhaps gay and lesbian advocates from Iran, or the minority leader from Iranian parliament? Oh, I forgot they are all hanging from cranes for all to see.
Maybe GIRO should address the real issues regarding Iran and not those imaginary.

As you are planning peace vigils this is what Iran is planning.

Oh but I forget. Your ilk is also for protecting the environment so an EMP would be considered a good thing.

That's a horse manure article. That's not even a U.S. official, but some paranoid "former" official talking about what he believes. This is the kind of stuff that leads to your, and the rest of the people on this topic, so bloody paranoid. Iran isn't going to attack the U.S., and we're not going to attack them. It's N. Korea all over again, they just want attention like a child throwing a tantrum. As a historically powerful country, Iran is just trying to feed their own patriotism, much like America. They're trying prove to the world that they're a powerful country again. That's all. They're not going to bomb anyone, they can't even test launch missles without photoshop for crying out loud.

George Bush has no intention of staring a war with Iran, but I'm not so sure about Obama. He said we should be taking a hard line with them. I think we should be negotiating with Iran. I think that negotiation would work with them. Yes, they are an agressive country and I wish they didn't want nukes, but I don't think we should attack unless we are attacked like on 9/11.

There is no negotiating with terrorists, however. Al-Quaida is a terrorist organization and trying to negotiate with them would be a joke.

We've been trying to talk to them for years. They don't want to listen or peace.

They are getting closer every day. This from yesterday.

Apparently there are a lot of folks 'paranoid' about what Iran intends to do.

I would maybe go to a vigil for those in a war right now, to hope for peace in general, but I'm not inclined to burn a whole lot of time on something that is that far off the map.
It would end up more as a publicity thing for Iranian State TV or newspapers:
"US Citizens Seek To Stop The Pending Invasion Of Iran"
It would play too well to the Iranian Gov't need to justify their nuclear weapons program.
Ms. Lathrop plays the puppet very well.

We talked to N. Korea for over 10 years and there was a lot of sabre-rattling over that one too. Don't worry, that little hobbit of a president will be voted out next election and we'll all be able to move on. Even the theocracy in Iran is growing tired of his little act. We just opened up an embassy of sorts there, things are progressing as they should. As for the previous poster who said Obama is taking a hard line on Iran, puhlease. Get a grip and stop reading the anti-Obama rhetoric. He's all for talking to them, which got quite the negative reaction from the conservative talking heads not one month ago. Talk about political ADD.

This guy denies the Holocaust. He has all expenses paid conferences and flies in all the revisionist nutloafs who claim "the Jews" made it all up to justify Israel. People like the letter writer would be raped, tortured and imprisoned over there. Besides all that the founders of Spice were flatly rejected when they wanted to open a Spice in Tehran, because they're Jews.

No, according to most Shiites, he's a pretty big deal, and has a very luxurious beard too from what I've heard. No, I'm telling you, there's nothing to worry about from these guys. It's N. Korea all over again. I think they've seen that N. Korea got what they wanted and now Iran wants to do the same. The Israel/Jewish bit is concerning, but I think they can take care of themselves pretty well at this point. Now that we can launch out of our new Mediterranean Vacation Escape (Iraq) I don't think we'll have to worry about them.

Iran's a very confused country. We have to rememeber that Islamic law is relatively new there and a lot of people aren't too keen on it. As Persians, they're a very proud country and were the largest, and first real empire. There's a lot of interesting things going on there, education, philosophy and culturally. I know all we see is the crazy stuff, but there's more there than meets the eye. I'm not saying their leaders aren't half-cooked, but the people are good decent people. We aren't going to go to war with them, and they won't be launching nuclear missles our way, I sweah!

Vigil? I don't need no stinkin' vigil!
