don't we have enough wars based on lies already going? is it absolutely essential to start yet another one? one with the potential to develop into a world war?

what the fuck is wrong with these politicians? is this their way of begging us to storm their presidential palaces and just lynch them all in a public square?

Here we go again.  No real solutions left to keep the ponzi fraud and theft going, so our "leaders" must demonstrate that we all need their protection in order to extract more wealth from everyone.

Fuck you Sarkozy.

"Wag that god damned dog"!  Wag it until the American and European sheep are screaming for Iranian blood. Surely this will make national security the over riding concern in NATO as the financial system collapses around them. Protest austerity and you are an Iranian agent, protest unemployment and you are against the troops. Perfect cover for smashing all domestic opposition to the banker's rape of the west.

If by war they mean sending ALL TSA and Primary Dealer Bank members agents over to Iran with nothing but three full speed loaders and a .38, then I would say go ahead and start that one.

"Amen" Perfect analysis. EU implodes = bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.

Blame the Persians, after all, they are sitting on one hell of a lake of oil. NATO "Oil Liberation is our business".

Iran is at fault you know.  Those bastards refuse to start a central bank to launder US and EURO debt.  What a bunch of sovereign assholes.

Yes, here we go again! Europe in friggen shambles and the Frog-In-Chief starts blabbing about Iran. So who has Iran invaded lately? Oh it was US backed Saddam who invaded Iran and killed hundreds of thousands of people. Backed 100% by NATO.

Look, I share nothing with the Islamic Republic, but I also don't care how they organize their state as long as they stay in their borders and do not promote terror cells.

Israel made clear on Sunday that their major problem with Iran's nukes is NOT that they would ever use them, but that having them makes them immune to invasion. Oh, now I get it!!

At this point, I sincerely hope that Iran DOES get the bomb, just to end the constant threats to their existence.

I want them to get the bomb so we can print even more trillions so we can go to war.

Seriously, at this point, how can we continue to pretend that Iran doesn't already have "the bomb"? You honestly want to believe that North Korea put one together before Iran could? The whole World needs to pull their heads out of each others' asses.

Invading countries is like raising margins. Sooner or later, you'll hit 100%. Then what? Invade Mars? Raise to 110%? Turn the amps to 11?

Is that why the market just surged?  Guess someone needs to remind the bots that if Iran is attacked, need to price in everything in the ME being irradiated.

Because it gives the governments of the world and central banks an excuse to print and spend.  If the Russians get involved this could be a big one.

... and then decide to form a new one.  Now that would make for a blockbuster plot line.  In any case, we are all tribal peoples at the end of the day and your local environment is always your most immediate resource when it comes to survival, know your neighbors?  You better.

that would be something, but no war is started because soldiers want to fight and die so much, government posesses all necessary resources to make populace scared shitless to go into war, because it is seemingly an only solution. people prior to WWI or WWII were hardly dumber than today's 16-18 year olds - yet they were sucked into a terrible conflict that consumed millions of them. very unfortunate, but with current level of geopolitical tensions, the war and i mean a really big one is quite inevitable. the world is once again on a collision course between several rival centres of power - one side looking to assert, the other one looking to preserve a status quo at any cost. add to that global labour glut and you have all the components for major blow up. Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan were just a rehearsal for the bigger play.
