WAR WITH IRAN COMING?



The first day of the UN General Assembly in New York was quite predictably marked by a boiling over of tension between Iran and Israel. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad used his speech at the gathering to denounce Israel's alleged nuclear stockpiles and its occupation of Palestine. The Iranian president's address to leaders and ministers from over 100 countries prompted Israel's ambassador to walk out. Ahmadinejad also implicitly accused the US of shielding Israel and paving the way for a strike on Tehran.

This comes just days after Washington decided to remove an Iranian militant group, the MEK off its terror blacklist. Jamal Abdi, the Policy Director of the National Iranian American Council, believes the sudden change of heart over an organization striving to overthrow the Iranian regime, is no coincidence.

I can't stand the utter hypocrisy coming from the U.S. and its allies about Iran having a nuclear weapon.  Israel has hundreds of them as do several other NATO lap dogs.  The U.S. reeks of nuclearism.

We can't let another war get started.  Stand up now while you still have legs!
