Nuke Iran?

I have heard a lot of talk about attacking Iran.

One thing that seems to be missing from all this talk is, what will happen to the people who live there?

Their religious believes might be different than the West's but does that mean they deserve to die?

If so, I think we need to examine our own beliefs.

Think of all the families, people just trying to make a living, going to work just like us.

Happy to come home to their families at the end of the day, just like us.

I'm just saying that we should really think about the horror that will be unleashed on innocent civilians in Iran if we let warmongers lead us.




I can just picture a "God fearing American" going to church and studying:

Matthew 5:9

They read all of that, then go home and support a presidential candidate that wants to nuke Iran.

Wow, you tell em Tex! I agree.
It was shocking the other day to hear one of the candidates say that the people who live there are crazy/fanatics (wish I could remember the other word he used, damn). Ron Paul keeps saying that we need to look deeper into what's really happening over there, "look" being the key word here. What they are doing is none of our business, and maybe the people of Iran, Iraq, and other countries wouldn't hate us so much if we kept our big American noses home smelling our own apple pie.

Diane - I agree with you.
Besides all that, war cost money and we are beyond broke. I would like to see other candidates answer the question
"How will you pay for more wars and lower the deficit?"

Tex, that was beautiful, spot-on right, and a flawless diagnosis of the bullshit between the ears of most of the three-god-initarian, life-after-death-mongering, salvation-by-altruism-propounding drones cranked out by pseudo-Christianity today.
The issue is not God or His Word, it is spiritualism disguised as Christianity (more commonly known as religion).
