In the last several months I have been hearing the drumbeats of war start again, the president has proclaimed that more harsh measures are to be taken against Iran. His administration recently declared that Iran is funneling weapons, funds, and training to Shite extremists. He has declared time and time again that Iran is part of a so called "Axis of Evil", full of evil men who's only desire is to create death and destruction. Today I ask, are we any better than Iran if WE create death and destruction? Many don't think that Bush has the guts to invade Iran but it seems clear to me that the ONLY thing Bush ever uses for his disisions are his "guts". For over 6 years he has declared a "war on terror",an abstract idea with no tangable way of fighting and no end in sight. He has started wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and now it appears to me that he wants to expand this war to a third front. I would not put it past the president to take (knowingly or not) false information of a "secret Iranian operation" inside Iraq and use this as a base for a declaration of war and subsiquent bombings. Aside from the worldwide uproar this would bring, aside from the unrest and hatred that would spring from the middle east, and aside from the expanded pressure on strategic and energy supplies, we would only cause more bloodshed and death that could have been avoided. Why is it that our leaders are so quick to bomb and destroy, and so afraid to pick up the pen and talk to our enemies? Surely the pen should be mightier than the sword.
