Tell them to STOP: We have had enough death and destruction

What is in it for Iran to attack any nation? The same thing that they have determined for the last 100 years … nothing? That’s right, Iran has not attacked anyone in over 100 years. The opposite is true however for the USA and Israel: In 1953, the CIA worked with the United Kingdom to overthrow the democratically elected government of Iran led by Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh who had attempted to nationalize Iran's petroleum industry, threatening the profits of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company. Declassified CIA documents show that Britain pressed the U.S. to mount a joint operation to depose the prime minister and install a puppet regime. It was the USA and Great Britain who ousted Democracy from Iran in 1953. Twenty seven years later the USA used Saddam Hussein as a proxy to attack Iran 1980 - 1988 when he was our buddy. If you are keeping score we are not making a lot of friendly gestures toward Iran. The Iranians are not suicidal; they have an address. We know where they live as does the English and the French. Stop believing all the moronic reasons and arguments from right wing nationals of any given country; war mongers all. I once heard it said that that if the only tool you have is a hammer then all problems look like nails; the right wing solution to all problems is war. If Iran launched a single missal toward Israel the end of Iran would be swift, complete and they know it.
Noam Chomsky writes recently for the New York Times Syndicate: “There is little credible discussion of just what constitutes the Iranian threat, though we do have an authoritative answer, provided by U.S. military and intelligence. Their presentations to Congress make it clear that Iran doesn't pose a military threat.”
“Iran has very limited capacity to deploy force, and its strategic doctrine is defensive, designed to deter invasion long enough for diplomacy to take effect. If Iran is developing nuclear weapons (which is still undetermined), that would be part of its deterrent strategy.”
“The understanding of serious Israeli and U.S. analysts is expressed clearly by 30-year CIA veteran Bruce Riedel, who said in January, "If I was an Iranian national security planner, I would want nuclear weapons" as a deterrent.”

Given our inability to have our way in Iraq and Afghanistan after years of using military force, why would any sane American want to invade a third country. Declare to the world that we do not support military action against Iran and further we do not support any plan by Israel to launch military action against Iran. If Israel attacks Iran then they are on their own without support from the USA and they will suffer the consequences of their own actions. Find a better way to solve problems to prevent violence…bombs and bullets do not work.
