  • Netanyahu slips, Reveals reason for Opposition to Iran Deal
    • The Iranians are smart, they know that if Israel bombs them, so what, Iran still wins. The only way that the US and Israeli right wingers could win, would be to destroy everything, and the rest of the world is saying hey US and Israel, "we don't see any upside to that". I mean, it would be better just to have Mossadegh back in there raising taxes on the oil companies 25% than destroy everything, guys.

  • The Second Iran-Iraq War and the American Switch
    • The power elite in the USA are too lazy and lacking discipline and in a sense of entitlement, they don't have any values, which is why they are always losing the political struggle so they always have to use war as a way to hold on and hopefully create enough fog to turn back the clock.
      As Mitt Romney said, arrogantly thinking he was talking about other people rather than himself, "I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives".

    • I remember about the Salvador Option for Iraq, so I went and looked it up, I am surprised to see that the officials who had bragged about how effective it was going to be at the time, are now denying they used it and saying it was just an idea by a couple of guys. They said the Salvador Option was going to be used against Sunni militias, but they were more excited about killing the Sadrists, so it seemed like a plan to work the Sunnis against the Sadrists.

    • Iraq was acting like they wanted help from USA yesterday, today the news is saying Iraq probably doesn't need help. The Shiites and the Kurds can hold their territory. If Iraq wanted help the logical place to go for help would be Iran. I speculate that maybe the Iraqis never really wanted the USA to help, they were probably pressured to ask for help.

    • Centrists are the ones opposed to what you say. Centrists are worse than right-wingers in my opinion, because they sabotage from within, centrists care more about their struggle against the liberals than they care about struggling against conservatives.

    • The rich create nothing, let alone jobs, and if they were charitable they would let us have our govt back so that we can have sensible policies so that we can survive.

    • The 1 percent it is. Not calling it the 1 percent allows the capitalists to pit the 20% against the 80%, when really 19% out of the 20% are in the same boat - called lazy - not acknowledged to contribute anything.

  • US-Iran War Averted by Agreement to Negotiate on Nuclear Enrichment
    • The British Sailor incident was the most recent high-point of efforts to jack up a war based on lies against the Iranians. If you recall, this was in Bushs 2nd term, it followed about 2 years of daily headlines where Bush officals said they had information that the Iranians were the ones killing the GIs over in Iraq.

      We have to remember this history. The bi-partisan consensus Republicans and Democrats have all claimed publicly that their support for the disaster in Iraq was a mistake. They are just saying that so we will trust them when they keep saying we gotta go to war.

      The Iraq war was really just a foot in the door to do Iran, Iran is a big enough bathtub for Grover Nordquist to drown our Democracy and Iraq was surely not - like it says in PNAC - Iraq first then maybe a couple other places then Iran.

    • I wish Juan had spoken to your claims. None of the claims that Iran was the ones killing GIs in Iraq were ever substantiated, those claims were all de-bunked. Juan tells us how the neo-cons are hell-bent to go to war, without mentioning the consistent campaign of over 1000 major headlines accusing the Iranians of killing GIs in Iraq. This was just made up. It doesn't make sense, it isn't logical, and it fits a pattern of telling lies. Plus, the stories were de-bunked.

  • Top Ten Republican Myths on Benghazi that Justify Hillary Clinton's Anger
    • Republicans are unable to explain even what their argument is, they got nothing on Clinton at all, Republicans dont have any credibility on foreign policy issues - during a time of war you just cant let the non-credible party have any say.
