Wednesday night, during the Republican debates, Ron Paul said "There is no evidence that Iran has a nuclear bomb"! And NONE of the other people on the platform denied it, told him he was wrong, etc. And that is just after the other three said they were going to bomb the crap out of Iran if they were elected President!!
Whoa!! Here we go again, mythical weapons of mass destruction. A president declaring war without a vote from congress. Thousands of young Americans killed. Billions of dollars wasted. The list goes on.
That night took a long time to go to sleep!!
And the next morning, the Los Angeles Times said the same thing.
"U.S. does not believe Iran is trying to build nuclear bomb

You can read the rest at latimes.com. And today, the New York Times told the same story.
Remember that in the 1940's, President Eisenhower warned about the dangers posed by the "Congressional/Military/Defense Industry complex (except his aides forced him to leave out Congressional).
And here we are sixty years later getting ready to let these assholes kill our kids and bankrupt the country because they have bought, signed and sealed Congress.
Every day, I am reminded that, "The only thing we learn from history is that we never learn anything from history". How incredibly sad is that?????
