  1. Congrats on the new gig Scott. And I love that one of your first guests on your Pacifica show was Philip Giraldi, a conservative antiwar speaker. I also love the cartoon y'all put on the donations page, with the Beck and Marx fans glaring at each other, but both holding Anti-War signs. That tells it all.

    Peace be with you.

  2. The NIE will say that Iran doesn't have nuclear weapons. Good for it. Of course, this won't stop the Israel-First liars, the warmongering scum, from claiming that Iran has "breakout" capability, or some such bullshit.
    Anything for an unjustified attack on Iran, right?

It took centuries for Iranian population to recover from that genocide. With a population of nearly 8 million in Tehran alone, I can garauntee any American war on Iran will be an unmitigated disaster. Tens of millions of Iranians will die.
