Or perhaps this:

The 4 Middle Eastern pictures above are from Saudi Arabia, not Iran. Same thing, you say? Actually, Saudi Arabia is doing its best to overthrow Iran via terrorism, and is persecuting Christians and Jews much more than Iran.

Maybe we should learn a little bit more before deciding whether or not to bomb Iran?

Especially since the U.S. has been claiming for more than 30 years that Iran was on the verge of nuclear capability, and top American and Israeli defense and intelligence bosses say that bombing Iran will only increase the odds that Iran will actually build a nuclear weapon?

Postscript: Iran obviously has problems and is far from perfect.  But given the tidal wave of propaganda in the news which is doing everything possible to "demonize the enemy" to justify war, we think it is valuable to provide some balance and perspective.
