Are you people begging for the nuclear WW?

Ynetnews at 3.05: 

“Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi survived a NATO airstrike on Saturday night that killed his youngest son Saif al-Arab and three of his grandchildren, a Libyan government spokesman said.

Mussa Ibrahim said Saif al-Arab was a civilian and a student who had studied in Germany. He was 29 years old”. 

Will Iran be the next and are you going to kill and destroy them all?

    hello Jaanika, interesting post! Thank you for sharing your ideas. Do you think the US are still planning to strike in Iran today, given that the article dates from 2007?

    What could be the option if they have gone so far?

    I have to say that I’m not quite following your argumentation. I don’t see any American invasion in Iran up to date…and to my eyes nothing is pointing in the direction that they may do so as we speak..

    Was this passive-aggressive screed actually a tweet? It sounds like the outburst of an adolescent who was just turned on (conditioned) into accepting someone’s politics. It seems to be founded on the delusion that Iran isn’t aggressively manipulating anyone it can if one refuses to notice it – and that it won’t have any sort of effect on anyone so long as we all give in.

    Having emigrated from Lebanon where they are still destroying the civility of the society through incitement and arming insurgencies, I would disagree. Any honest person with a shred of humanity can see that they are the aggressor. Just because they might build a nuke, or already have a nuke is not a reason to become servile, It is a reason to define a balance of power in favor of the security of civilians and individual human freedom and decency. Cowering in teh face of Iran, or even Gaddafi for that matter does precisely the opposite.

    Removing Gaddafi does not provoke Iran to aggression, and the Pentagon’s job is to plan for contingencies under a large variety of possible scenarios. Do you believe that NOT having contingency plans will send some sort of magical thought-beam to change the world’s circumstances?
