there wont be any nuclear war, anyone who claims otherwise is clearly out with an agenda. ANyone who claims nuclear war will occur a day,a week,a month,a year or a decade from now has an agenda for saying it. How much are you willing to wager 100% that no nulcear war will ever occur, in the 21st century,those in none of your lifetimes. Well ? exactly, if I had a dime ofr everytime I heard a nuclear war is imminent,Id be trillionaire,not jsut a billionaire.

Sadly most people view the world via a screen and are completely isolated from the realities of war suffering and fear.

I hope for all of our sakes that this doesn't happen right now. Our govornment is in absolutely no shape to take on Iran, Russia, and China. I hope Israel rises up and kicks some serious butt of their own. The world needs a miracle.
Wise, funny, and heartbreaking, Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi’s memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. In powerful black-and-white comic strip images, Satrapi tells the story of her life in Tehran from ages six to fourteen, years that saw the overthrow of the Shah’s regime, the triumph of the Islamic Revolution, and the devastating effects of war with Iraq. The intelligent and outspoken only child of committed Marxists and the great-granddaughter of one of Iran’s last emperors, Marjane bears witness to a childhood uniquely entwined with the history of her country.
Persepolis paints an unforgettable portrait of daily life in Iran and of the bewildering contradictions between home life and public life. Marjane’s child’s-eye view of dethroned emperors, state-sanctioned whippings, and heroes of the revolution allows us to learn as she does the history of this fascinating country and of her own extraordinary family. Intensely personal, profoundly political, and wholly original, Persepolis is at once a story of growing up and a reminder of the human cost of war and political repression. It shows how we carry on, with laughter and tears, in the face of absurdity. And, finally, it introduces us to an irresistible little girl with whom we cannot help but fall in love.

There are too many arm chair generals in this world, a fair few here on ATS who are always ready to fight for the last drop of someone else's blood. Calling the shots and scenarios, yet have no intention of ever going to war themselves or contemplating the innocents that will perish in their scenario.edit on 4-11-2011 by woodwardjnr because: (no reason given)
