I'm sure pink will feel it has been proven beyond doubt that Saddam moved all his WMD to Iran the day before the war  :laugh:

First of all, I was never "pro-war with Iraq". I stated repeatedly that I was unconvinced that it was the very best choice for the US, England, Australia, Spain, et al to invade Iraq at the time they did. Even in hindsight, I REMAIN unconvinced that it was the very best course of action to take. However, I found (and still find) most of the arguments presented here AGAINST the invasion to be weak ones.

Moving on to the Iran issue -- if even ten per cent of those who demonstrated against the Iraq invasion were to demonstrate IN SUPPORT of the Iranians who are desperately trying to oust their current theocratic "leaders", it may very well turn out that the whole "war or no war in Iran" question will become a moot point.

Someone here posted a great link to a site addressing this very issue a month or so ago. I'll be damned if I can remember who it was or what the title of the thread was, but I do remember that the post got very little attention.

Come on, all ye protest goers -- here is an issue worth getting behind. Organize protests supporting the Iranians who are in favor of ousting the mullahs.

Were still a few years away from attack.

First we need sanctions to degrade their defence capabilities and lower the quality of living for the people.

Then we can go in, sweep through their broken defences and "save" the people from their repressive government.

I'd support a US led overthrowing of the majority of the Middle East Arab nations.  Palestine (Which isn't even, and never should be, a nation) Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, etceteras.  One after the other.  Then we take every drop of oil they have. No training camps, no money, no pilot lessons, no more dead americans. As for the dead arabs, I won't waste my tears on them.  they can't play nicely, they don't have the mental constitution to understand freedom, so we'll just have to stop even attempting to give them that. We take what we want, defend our interests, and those that don't like it can go live over there :smile:

GabbaDj - I don't think that we could lower the living conditions in many of these Arab nations even if we tried.  It must be nice to have never experiened any place other than your home (The free"ist" nation on earth), and still be able to dictate what they want. I wish I could do that. but then, i'd be a blinded idiot liberal to

:smile:

Weren't you leaving this forum or something?


--------------------
The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

Pinky:

Doubtful. What effect did one hundred percent of those who demonstrated against the Iraq invasion have on the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq? Some, perhaps, but the invasion took place. How do you think ten percent of those will influence affairs in Iran? Are they to boost Iranian morale, or encourage the U.S. government to start funding and training, or something else?

hongomon asks:

I wish I had thought to bookmark the original post that had the link to the Iranian organization that is asking for this kind of support. It was a very enlightening link. Perhaps the original poster will see this thread and bump the thread or something.

Anyway, the morale boost and wide international exposure is mainly what the Iranians are hoping for, although I am sure they would not turn down assistance of any kind from any source.

You didn't answer my question. In your post, you said that with even a ten-percent showing of the Iraq invasion protesters, "it may very well turn out that the whole "war or no war in Iran" question will become a moot point."

My question was, How do you think that that may very well make the difference, not what the Iranians were hoping. I have no doubt that they, as well as countless groups worldwide, would appreciate international shows of support.

I'm going to go search for the article. After all, I'm not against the idea.
