Are there ANYONE left who thinks that a war with Iran is STILL avoidable?

Unfortunately the vast majority of people believe the lie that these austerity cuts are needed.
The simple truth of the matter is that they aren't.
The UK is far from being skint but Cameron and his MSM cronies has people believing we are little better off than Greece and the PIGS etc.
In addittion any form of protest is portrayed in a negative light with protestors deemed uncompromising, radical extremists when the reality is that the vast majority of them are normal, everyday people who have genuine concerns about the direction this country is taking.
We are regressing and all the advancements gained by our parents and grandparents etc are going to be done away with in the span of one term of office as Cameron continues his crusade to dismantle anything and everything that is of benefit to 'the working man' as we decline to some sort of Victorianesque society.
It's sickening that these politicians can find billions to fund their wars but cut vital services to those very people who have suffered horrendously fighting them.
Iran poses no realistic threat to the UK other than it's funding of Islamic terrorists and extremists.
We, and I mean the UK alone, is more than capable of sending Iran and the whole region back to the stone age if we were ever directly threatened or attacked.
But that is not going to happen.
We can not allow Cameron to take us into another unwinnable and unjust war just to further the TPTB agenda and at a direct cost to the very fabric of this nation and Union.

TBH, I hope you are right. It seems to me that the majority of men I speak to in the UK are football fans. It also seems that football fans care little for the state of the world other than how each league or cup is doing in various football playing countries.
Another impression I get is that unless a country is in the world cup and made a respectable effort, they may as well be blown off the map.
Sorry, just a little rant from a frustrated, non-football supporting Englishman.

He's a liar. Just like you said. I would reeeeaaally like to know what the US and UK are looking for in the ME. And it's not oil, They want us to believe it is, even though They spout the usual "in the name of liberty" rhetoric, kind of like reverse-reverse psychology. They know the simpletons are smart enough to know it's oil, but like I said it's all a mirage. I say it has to do with past civilizations, something TPTB need to remain hidden. Whatever it is, TPTB think it's important enough to kill kill kill, while at the same time risk sending the Superpower nations into financial ruin. Of course I base my opinion on what I see on ATS, maybe Iran is the boogeyman.
