Common Sense

June 23 2008

Is there anyone left in this world with a lick of common sense? The answer is yes but they are few and far between. One that I am aware of is Mohamed ElBaradei. He is the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). He warned that an attack on Iran over its nuclear program would turn the region into a fireball.
Here we are on the brink of WW111 because the United States and/or Israel are planning to drop bombs on Iran. Why? Because they say Iran has weapons of mass destruction. Where have we heard that before? If we like the invasion of Iraq we are going to love an attack on Iran. They are planning the attack in spite of the US National Intelligence Estimates concluding that there had been no on-going nuclear weapons program in Iran since the fall of 2003 and ElBaradei has concurred that the IAEA has no concrete evidence of an ongoing nuclear weapons program or undeclared nuclear facilities in Iran.

Where do the Leaders of our political parties stand on this? If you want to know you will have to guess, because as far as I can tell they aren’t saying. None of them answer my emails and a search of their websites is unrewarding.

There is one way to get their attention though. We must ask our MPs what their stand is on this issue and tell them that their answer will determine how our ballot will be marked in the next election.
