Pressure between the western powers and Iran continue to soar. Over the weekend Iran shot down a US drone flying in Iranian airspace. This is just one of a series of unfortunate events between Iran and the US. If the US goes to Iran who stands to benefit? Tariq Ali, author, joins us to help answer this question.

2. Yes, it is insane for anyone to even consider this. And for no
reason. From what I'm reading around the world, this is being compared to the lies told by the Bush admin about Iraq. I don't think Russia and China, and now we have Pakistan angry at us, will go along even by default this time.

Whoever is pushing for this needs to be taken somewhere and locked up. They are a threat to world peace.

3. Rec'd to zero.
Are there really Democrats who now would support this insanity? I know we opposed these threats against Iran throughout the Bush administration.

4. Tariq Ali just stated it very plainly in this video, an attack on Iran would be suicide
either by Israel or the US. It would cause untold suffering, and possibly world war.

6. Repubs are holding their breath
Sad to say, but any new war with Iran will boost Obama's approval ratings. The old "Rally 'round" syndrome.

8. World war
America will destroy the world at the behest of Israel,no doubt about that.
Problem is too many in this world are caught up in the fairy tale ancient Creationist Mythology story
that one must stand behind,and support the chosen ones,Gods chosen ones, Jews/Israel, no matter what they do,because if they don't,then they wont get blessed with their"Brownie points" to get in Gods selective heaven,and they will burn in the everlasting fire of Lucifer's hell for eternity.
That story has been scaring every one, especially Christian believers of america into blindly supporting Israel no matter what.And so no matter how reckless,dangerous and suicidal the outlook is,America will forge ahead full blast.
Sick
