Neocons Won’t Stop Until They Get Their War With Iran

Neocons Won’t Stop Until They Get Their War With Iran

Sonali Kolhatkar

Several recent indicators strongly suggest President Donald Trump’s administration appears to be angling for a war with Iran. On Monday, The New York Times reported that the White House has been reviewing military plans against Iran.

They blew up the system in 2016 for all of us, and have been picking it apart, piece by piece ever since.

Now, it’s our turn to blow up their system.

I was talking to a member of Veterans For Peace a couple of days ago. Next weekend their local chapter will, as per tradition, establish a “Memorial Mile” with markers for each and every uniformed soldier lost in Afghanistan and Iraq. He expressed his sincere concern that next year’s tribute would include Iran. I am afraid he might be right. Militarily, there is no way an occupation could be successful. The neocons (war by tanks) and the neoliberals (war by banks) have really been screwing up this world with their “vision” of American Exceptionalism. Color me exceptionally unimpressed.

I’d change the title to “Neocons won’t stop until they scam us for our tax dollars using war with Iran as an excuse.”

Any person who wants to be seen as a credible anti-wat voice, be they a member of Government or the media, have to be just as Vocal against war when a Democrat in charge as they are when a Republican in charge.

Build more debt…into the future. Generations of children born and immediately saddled with war debt they had no part of building but who will spend their working life paying that debt on top of personal debt accrued through credit. They need babies to work and as bodies to go into the war machine; of course they are “right to lifers.”
Every body counts or everybody counts…

Dems were SO excited to “win” the House in 2018.

So, USE that majority to STOP any war-like actions in IRAN.

… or, ADMIT that you ACCEPT & support the mad aggressive desires of Trump.

Sounds like you don’t support the troops.

it would be nice if even though there are obnoxious aspects of the Iranian regime, peace and social justice advocates around the world demanded their governments resist US bullying, not just oppose a US war against Iran but also demand they trade with Iran too. If the world were reasonably united the US would have to back down or suffer greatly.

This will end badly, plain and simple. Death and destruction is all the neocons know. No endgame. No overall goals, just death and destruction. They are the real monsters, the vampires sucking the life out of us all. Stakes through their hearts seems too mild of punishment. The MIC is the end of the world ad we citizens have no recourse to these monsters, most of which were never elected. Primary out the ones(Congress) that are appointing and enabling the monsters to reside in our govt. Or we will perish at their hands.

The US hasn’t won a war since the 1983 invasion of Grenada, (population about the same as either Tuscaloosa, Fall River, or Davenport) for which so many medals were handed out it was called a Special Olympics for the military.

It’s been so long, the only people teaching the new warriors are the ones who lost the last 5 wars. Doesn’t exactly inspire confidence, but I guess if you’ve gotta have tyrants, the best kind are the rabidly obvious incompetent ones. Inept as they are, ours are steadily sand blasting away even the things we only imagine were good about the US. We’ve lost all credibility and leadership internally and internationally; we’re making the imminent end of civilization inevitable, and nobody likes us any more. We don’t even like us.

This war would be the worst idea since leaving the Paris agreement; if it had any chance of ending, ever, it would end badly. But no war ever ends, and this one might very well last til the end of the world.
