Don’t be Swindled Again!
Glenn Greenwald reports that Senate Democrats and Republicans are pushing for war with Iran in equal numbers.
There is no evidence that Iran is working on a nuclear weapons program. The Ayatollah, who is head of Iran’s government, has said it goes against Islam to make nuclear weapons, and he has forbid it.
One recalls that the illegal invasion of Iraq was also bipartisan, and, though partisan Democrats blame President Bush these days, Bush had the support of the overwhelming majority of Democrats at every step in violating international laws of war. The two recognized legal authorizations for such a war are 1. Self defense, after a nation has been attacked and 2. Authorization by the UN Security Council, neither of which applied.
Meanwhile, Michael McAuliff tells us that the Senate voted 66-33 to reject a bill to restore $4.5 billion in food stamps for the poor – mainly children and the elderly, while trillions of dollars continue to flow to the top 1% – the bankers, arms makers, and the oil companies!
