If you don't speak up you accept what is happening. This site was born out of the mainstream media's inability to cover the news. I am just an American cititzen trying to spread the word in the era of FCC consolidation, post 9/11 Patriot Act hysteria, hackable voting machines and war without end. I rant and post news items I perceive to be relevant to our current situation.
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

So the 9/11 Cover-up Commission is going to release it's report this week and as we found out over the weekend they are putting the bullseye on Iran. Now that Israel has chosen our next target it appears to be only a matter of time before we go after Iran. They are going to make the same arguments they made to justify invading Iraq all over again. It's just like they are selling you a movie. Iran: The Next Crusade. How many American lives is it worth? How many countries are we going to have to invade before we are safe? How much of our treasury has to be thrown away on military spending before we realize it would be much better spent here at home.
This debate comes down to fundamental principles. Do you honestly think that this country can remake the world by doing to other countries what we have already done in Afghanistan and Iraq? The early returns are in and it doesn't look good. Your President likes to tell you that the reason these people hate us is because of our freedom. But it wasn't our "freedom" that overthrew a democratically elected government in Iran in 1953. It was the CIA. It wasn't our freedom that put the Shah back in power after that. It was the CIA. As many have said they don't hate America, they hate what our government does to their countries.
So the brain trust of the U.S. wants to invade Iran. Take a look at the country. Compare it to its neighbor that we are still occupying: it is almost 4 times the size and almost three time the population. Where are we going to get the army to invade that country? These people are downright insane.
Some info on Iran:
Yesterday there was Council on Foreign Relations released a report, Iran: Time for a New Approach. It's worth a look.
The CIA isn't joining in, so far, Bush, CIA at Odds on Iran
