Would you support a war against Iran if you knew that?

  • Iran has one of the largest Jewish populations in the world, and the second-largest in the Middle East behind Israel

  • Jews are protected by the Iranian constitution, and are guaranteed seats in the Iranian parliament

  • The CIA admits that the U.S. overthrew the moderate, suit-and-tie-wearing, Democratically-elected prime minister of Iran in 1953. He was overthrown because he had nationalized Iran's oil, which had previously been controlled by BP and other Western oil companies. 

  • As part of that action, the CIA admits that it hired Iranians to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its prime minister.

  • If the U.S. hadn't overthrown the moderate Iranian government, the fundamentalist Mullahs would have never taken over. (Moreover, the U.S. has had a large hand in strengthening radical Islam in the Middle East by supporting radicals to fight the Soviets and others)

  • The U.S. armed and supported Iraq after it invaded Iran and engaged in a long, bloody war which included the use of chemical weapons. Here is former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld meeting with Saddam Hussein in the 1980 --s, several months after Saddam had used chemical weapons in a massacre - Video


  • The U.S. has been claiming for more than 30 years that Iran was on the verge of nuclear capability

  • The U.S. helped fund Iran's nuclear program - Video


  • The U.S. has been actively planning regime change in Iran -- and throughout the oil-rich Middle East and North Africa -- for 20 years

  • The decision to threaten to bomb Iran was made before 9/11

  • America and Israel both support a group designated by the U.S. as a terrorist organization which is trying to overthrow the Iranian government

  • Top American and Israeli military and intelligence officials say that Iran has not decided to build a nuclear bomb

  • Top American and Israeli military and intelligence officials say that -- even if Iran did build a nuclear bomb - it would not be that dangerous, because Israel and America have so many more nukes - and see this
  • American military and intelligence chiefs say that attacking Iran would only speed up its development of nuclear weapons, empower its hardliners, and undermine the chance for democratic reform

  • The people pushing for war against Iran are the  same people  who pushed for war against Iraq, and said it would be a "cakewalk" - see this and this.

  • Well-known economist Nouriel Roubini says that attacking Iran would lead to global recession

  • The IMF says that Iran cutting off oil supplies could raise crude prices 30%. War with Iran would kill the American economy - and see this and this

  • China and Russia have warned that attacking Iran could lead to World War III - Source Washington's Blog
  • Yes, Iran might get or might have a nuclear weapon
    No, the truth about Iraq shows they are not a threat
