NOT another War!

by John Brian Shannon

Attacking Iran militarily is such a bad idea that “the heads of the Mossad and Shin Bet are publicly opposing the idea of an attack.” 

Israeli authour extraordinaire and political activist Uri Avnery has written a startling reveal in the Arab News;

“Israel’s saber rattling against Iran”

If the former heads of Israel’s intelligence agencies are against the idea — it’s safe to say it’s a bad idea!

Bad for an almost bankrupt America, which would be automatically pulled into any Middle Eastern conflict, where millions of barrels of black treasure are pumped from under the desert sands. Speaking of treasure, America’s leaders should be concentrating fully on fixing it’s backwards economy. 

Don’t think it’s backwards? How about borrowing well over 1 trillion dollars every year (most of it from China) just to pay the deficit? That is leaving completely aside the accumulated and growing federal debt of 15 trillion dollars!

For up to the minute U.S. federal debt information:

All around, it’s a bad idea to attack Iran. Nobody can afford war any longer, it’s just too costly – in lives and in treasure. Nowadays, with modern weaponry that may turn out to be a good thing.

One more thing – British statesman Tony Benn, said it best; “All war represents a failure of diplomacy.”

Therefore… let diplomacy chart our course – as any other course of action will certainly lead us to calamity.
