The United States reserves for itself the right to say what and when the world should be watching.  “People who work for peace and justice must show skepticism when the media tell them who deserves their attention and advocacy efforts.” The world, as defined by U.S. Corporate media, turned its head when “1,400 Gazans were killed so that Israel might inflict collective punishment on a civilian population.” The U.S. Feigns great concern for the human rights of Iranians, but continues threaten a military attack. Real human rights proponents “must always keep in mind that warfare is the worst human rights abuse of all.”

"bomb, bomb Iran" is now in love with the Iranian people. Obama sees through is fakes and he is not going to dance to their music.

BTW, did McCain ever give a shit how many Iranians would be killed by his bombs? I don't think so.



right on

But at least Obama has the right sense and decency to stay out of current situation, which otherwise would have only played in the hardliners hand.  Perhaps some thing republicans want to see (to keep hardliners in power)
