No Attack On Iran

The Cato Institute's Doug Bandow tells us why it's wrong for the world's most aggressive country to attack Iran.

Better not vote Republican then. The GOP is beating the drums.

You forget that Hillary Clinton- the Democratic nominee to be- voted for the Iraq War. Has supported all our military excursions (including the attack on Yugoslavia by hubby Bill) and gloated over our part in wrecking Libya.

How democrats voted regarding Iraq is irrelevant when you consider how the Bush administration lied regarding the risk Iraq posed and their connection to 911. i am disappointed they took the easy way out, but frankly you can't blame them. The same thing goes with Bibi's lies regarding how close Iran is to developing a bomb.

Kinda partisan, isn't that? Lol.

We mustn't forget all the misinformation the Obama Administration has helped spread about Syria- chemical weapon use, and all that.

Except I don't know that either Obama or Bush can be blamed for the sort of stuff the War Party puts out. The same people that pushed for invading Iraq are pretty much the same ones that keep trying to get us to attack Syria. They use the same sort of propaganda/ disinfo all the time.

That a president goes along with that, I suppose is good enough reason to point fingers, but it happens regardless of party. Presidents are people and fall for the same things we all do.

Fred, your observation about Hillary has nothing to do with the current push by Republicans for war. Also missing from your observation is that Democrats made a decision that was founded on a bed of lies fed to them.

Switching topics... given your blog posts about Obamacare, you might find this interesting... a popular dyed-in-the-wool Tea Party gun advocate... might vote for Hillary. Why? He's beginning to realize who doesn't benefit from GOP maneuvers.
