Everyone has the right to live free in peace. No one has just cause to jeopardize it. Civil resistance is vital. Slaying these beasts is essential to sustain life.

They're criminals. "We are the sheriffs!" It's our responsibility to stop them. The choice is simple. Live free or perish in a radioactive wasteland. It could happen any time, says Boyle. Sustained preventive action is the only way to stop it. Reasoning with rogues doesn't work. In their face activism is called for. 

On September 6, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said attacking Iran risks a regional "apocalypse." He added that "peace, prosperity and stability" initiatives must prevent it. 

He stopped short of explaining his role in America's proxy war on Syria. If full-blown, Turkey will be directly threatened. Instead of risking it, he should categorically oppose it.

War on Syria and/or Iran potentially affects the entire region and beyond. Rational leaders should join with others against it. Erdogan wants it both ways. It doesn't wash. 

Internal elements opposes him. He's hell bent on allying with Washington. Targeting Assad risks internal blowback. He's putting his own career on the line. He exposed his unconscionable irresponsibility.

Canada's Stephen Harper matches him blow for blow. He heads its rightwing government. Canada is one of 28 NATO countries. Harper  partners in America's wars.

On September 7, Foreign Minister John Baird said Canada closed its Tehran embassy. It expelled Iranian diplomats in Ottawa. They have five days to leave. He claimed a nonexistent Iranian threat. He took a page from AIPAC's playbook. He bogusly called Tehran the gravest threat to global security.

He accused Iran of "providing increasing military assistance to the Assad regime." He ignored Washington's war Syria. He said nothing about Canada's role. 

He didn't explain how America, NATO partners, and regional allies recruit, arm, fund, train, and direct ravaging death squads. He was silent on what matters most.

He included a litany of lies about Iran. He unconscionably pointed fingers the wrong way. Canada is a committed imperial partner. It supports the worst of Israel's crimes. Ottawa's on the same fascist slippery slope as America. Sleeping with the devil rubs off.

Sooner or later expect war. Boyle told Progressive Radio News Hour listeners to expect it any time. He warned of its potential catastrophic consequences. 

If launched, blame game finger pointing won't help. It'll be too late to matter. Top priority is preventing what's too dangerous to risk. The time to do it is now.
