I'm still hoping that cooler heads prevail.
If there is a war, it won't just Nuclear, but also Radiologoical, Biological and Chemical warfare. And it will touch major cities in the US. It would touch every continent.
But like I said, I hope that cooler heads prevail.
"What we're focused on is a diplomatic strategy," said Rhodes, "which increases the pressure on the Iranians, through financial pressure, through economic sanctions, through diplomatic isolation."

In the West, we are going on with our daily lives, watching Jersey Shore and peeking at the OWS once in awhile. We are buying whatever we don't need, going to school, complaining about work and throwing away leftover food as usual.

The few condemn the many. It is a sad fact. They condemn us when they must realise without us they are nothing, while us without them are free.

Can you for just a second imagine what it is like for a mother looking at her child, listening to the radio or TV blaring out messages of a possible nuclear war coming within weeks or even days?

It really doesn't matter to her who is right or wrong and my guess is that many don't even know why it is coming. It's not her fault as it's not yours or mine. I don't imagine she's too thrilled with her leaders right now either.

Think? I'v been there and done that, it was called the Cuban missile crisis, I was eight years old. You seem to forget how many times Iran said they will wipe Israel off the face of the world. Time to put up or shut up. Your liberal slant is blaringly loud.

So many warmongering bastards here on ATS - makes me ashamed to be part of this community sometimes - in the last few days i've heard idiots saying 'Iranians deserve to die because they threatened Israel' or that 'palestinians are scum' or that 'Afghans deserved it because they are all terrorists'
These people are deluded xenophobic idiots who make my blood boil.
These people who wish to cluster bomb Iran or throw white phosphorous on Palestinian civilians are utter fools, they speak of justice or liberty, democracy and freedom as if they even know what it means. Many of these members I even considered friends or at least appreciated some of their former posts and links.
Now I feel disgruntled. People can talk about bombing middle eastern countries and shooting innocents, yet others who discuss cannabis are banned, punished and abused by moderators.
Vile. I hate this planet sometimes.
