hold on

Tell me I am not alone in fearing Iran. More specifically, I fear our involvement in Iran (whether willing or unwilling).

And for what it's worth, go hug a baby.

You've nothing to fear from Iran, only fear those that try and demonise them.

No you're not alone. Usually I'm a strong believer in the good in people. But I more and more have the impression that politicians are of a different species. I wish there would be more we could do than hug a baby.

braBaby offically hugged.

I don't believe for a second thast those soldiers were Iranian. I think that this administration has a huge history of trumping things up in order to invade a country. This needs CAREFUL and EXTENSIVE investigation.

Iran is cool, not perfect but who are we to judge?

Daniel: Any country who encourages the killing of good authors (e.g. Salman Rushdie) is not cool in my eyes.

Stormmaster: I'm in agreement with you. When you find out what more we can do, please let me know.

Colleen: Ack, I was hoping someone with a broader view of history could reassure me. This is a bad sign.

Notso: Thanks for the new post; forgive me for whining.

UWL: I suppose I'm doubly screwed--I fear going to war with another country and I fear the government taking us into that war.

Daniel: I am an imperfect, ethnocentric person with no sense of context. But that's the beauty of democracy: we all get to judge. Frankly, I wouldn't want it any other way. (I just wouldn't want people like me to be the ones elected.)

We're all screwed. DIdn't our parents do their best in the 60's to make sure we wouldn't have to fear the government? We have become too trusting. We assume thet they're looking out for our best intrest but the truth is, we are, each of us, completely on our own. It's only through forming our own communities that we can combat this problem. The internet may have brought us closer together, but it has also moved us incredibly far apart. I can communicate with you, with Daniel, etc..., but at the same time, what do I really know about the people living next door, across the street... As long as we separate ourselves this way, we will NEVER accomplish anything.

I think that the marking out of Iran as a target is unwise, I mean I don't like countries that kill prisoners or who spy on their own folks.

The point is: don't throw stones from a glass house.
