The War on Iran Thus Far


We think of the war on Iran as in the future, or we think of an Israeli surgical strike in the future, fantasizing that no wider war would be involved, and pretending that the United States would not be responsible.  But economic warfare is underway.  Deadly sanctions are not a means of avoiding war, but a step into it.  Cyber warfare is openly underway.  Assassinations are announced with a wink and a nod.  Terrorist groups like the MEK are funded and promoted.  And a war in Syria, with the stated goal of weakening Iran, is given U.S. support. 

As much of this sneaks in under the radar, and a fullscale war will strike viewers of "Dancing With the Stars" or "Stars Earn Stripes" as arising out of the blue, the Green Mountain Chapter of Veterans For Peace has compiled a couple of charts.  The first chronicles the escalating rhetoric, including the crime of threatening war.  The second chronicles the extent of the actual war in progress thus far.  As always, keep up on the campaign to stop attacks on Iran at http://DontAttackIran.org And sign RootsAction's petition here.
