    The article states:

    "These are strange times for those of us who follow the debate about a possible war with Iran. It is clear that the Israeli government and its Neoconservative camp followers here the the US are increasing pressure on Pres. Obama to either attack Iran or let Israel do it (in which case, we would be forced to join in), But the idea of another Middle East War is so outlandish that it seems inconceivable it coulld actually occur."

    "Still the conventional wisdom holds that it can, (since this current push for war with Iran is a near mirror image of what took place before the Iraq War) and the main reason is that this is an election year and no one will say no to Binyamin Netanyahu in an election year."

    "War enthusiasm will rise to a fever pitch by March, when AIPAC holds its annual policy conference. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will, if past example holds, bring the crowd of 10,000 to its feet by depicting Iran as the new Nazi Germany and by coming very close to stating that only war can stop these new Nazis, Other speakers will say the same, The few who mention the idea of diplomacy will be met by stony silence."

    More to come, but take the time to look this up and look up all the articles in the US and on Haaretz News from Israel and you will see how important this subject is and how close we are being pushed to yet another war, this one with Iran.


    Aren't you concerned that the very same tactics used to get us into war with Iraq are again being employed to a run up to war with Iran ?

    Nah.

    Unlike Iraq in 2003, Iran in 2012 poses a clear and present danger to world stability and its own citizens.

    Apples to oranges.

    By what you wrote, you haven't looked up one site showing that Iran is not the threat that the AIPAC and Israeli Neo Cons would have us believe they are, have you ? Remember, its the same groups who pushed for the Iraq war that is doing it again, What's that saying, 'fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me'. what is it? you need to learn the same damn lesson three times?

    Its one thing to be ignorant through lack of knowledge, but when reality is put right in front of you and you choose ignorance to maintain a bigoted excuse for such things as war, then that's just 'damned' ignorance with no excuse.

    Are you going to inlist for this next war ? If you support these idiots, GET IN LINE !!!

    More from the above article: "IRAN WAR: What is AIPAC Planning"

    "From the convention center, 10,000 (Israeli lobby AIPAC) delegates will be dispatched to Capitol Hill with two or three "asks" for Members of Congress, One will, no doubt, be that "containment" of a neclearized Iran be ruled off the table (leaving war as the only remaining options should Iran get the bomb). Another will likely be that the US stop all dealings with the Palestinian Authority should Hamas and Fatah permanently reconcile. A third could apply either to Iran or Palestine and will, no doubt, demand fealty to whatever Netanyahu's policy of the moment happens to be. I've sat in those meetings where the AIPAC "asks" are developed and it was always clear that the substance didn't matter all that much."

    More to come from this Jewish writer who has experienced all the AIPAC arm twisting tactics and propaganda that Congress seems so fearful to resist over that little accusation of 'ANTI SEMITISM' when they fail to comply with AIPAC's wishes . Stay tuned for more factual statements from this article.
