Iran War: Not Another Life

People who want peace at any cost are increasingly becoming rare. This, notwithstanding an inherent human necessity for survival. Possibly because of the way, “war” as a word has been normalized by the media as not one aberration, but one natural everyday process, that folks don’t pay much attention to necessity for survival.

Well, yet another war story, depending on where one comes from. For those of us who can’t stand war, its not just inhuman, but grossly unacceptable. Let not the protests begin after a thousand American working class youths are murdered on the front. The protest has to begin now. Not to “bring the boys back home”. But not to send them at the first place to the frontiers of war. We have seen enough of the sadistic pleasures of cowardice heads of the states. And now we got to show them (the global allies of imperialistic defense manufacturers) the might of resistant and organized peaceniks.

PREVENT IRAN WAR BY ANY MEANS. IN THE GOD’S NAME. AND IF THAT DOES NOT SUFFICE, IN ALLAH’S, AND IN THE NAME OF EVERY OTHER SUPREME CREATORS WE BELIEVE IN.

We cannot afford to lose one single additional life of any human being in the name of their war. Not over their religions. Not over their greedy fuel corporate interests. Not another life shall be laid down to bring smiles to those war mongers. Youths at their prime are supposed only to cause ecological progress at the speed of light, not to commit suicide on behest of parasitical fanatics masquerading as some fascist patriots.

Here is the sad story. If it’s true, DO WHAT YOU CAN to prevent this from developing into future headlines.

Former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter says the war with Iran has already begun. Excerpts:

The reality is that the US war with Iran has already begun. As we speak, American over flights of Iranian soil are taking place, using pilotless drones and other, more sophisticated, capabilities.

The violation of a sovereign nation’s airspace is an act of war in and of itself. But the war with Iran has gone far beyond the intelligence-gathering phase.

President Bush has taken advantage of the sweeping powers granted to him in the aftermath of 11 September 2001, to wage a global war against terror and to initiate several covert offensive operations inside Iran.

The most visible of these is the CIA-backed actions recently undertaken by the Mujahadeen el-Khalq, or MEK, an Iranian opposition group, once run by Saddam Hussein’s dreaded intelligence services, but now working exclusively for the CIA’s Directorate of Operations.
