Below is an article I found in a UK paper about what our military & government are thinking about these days. Men may be good at fighting but they suck at knowing when to start or stop fighting. I think they could ruin this whole world just because they suck at knowing when to start or stop. I think the women should be the ones to tell them where and when to start and stop. Maybe all the straight ones could just tell their men “you ain’t getting any from me until you pay attention and start acting the way we women want you to” Women know how to create community, nurture all living things and confer with each other to find solid answers. men are like the seagulls in finding nemo “mine,mine.mine…”
I could sit here for days and talk about the ramifications if they carry out this evil plan in all of our names but i’ll keep it simple
1. it’s all about oil $$$$$
2. Russia & China both are not going to sit back an watch
3. many more will die & many more will become fighters against the west (US)
4. Dick Cheney will get richer and put it all in euros
5. They’ll all (crazy neo-cons) go play in Dubai (and another city they’ve built near the tip of south america) and laugh their asses off
6. It’s up to all of us to do something to stop it…no leader is coming to save us
7. Join a group in your area now! move on, green peace, any social justice reform non profit, volunteer to answer the phones, put together mailings. show up for local peace marches. take some of your friends and show up at your next democratic party meeting-take it over with fellow progressives. talk to people in your family, your neighbors, your coworkers. host a house party to talk about the issues. teach your kids how to grow a tomato plant or a whole vegetable garden…it might help them connect with the earth. stop supporting huge box stores and go to the local farmers market. stop buying bottled water. start giving what you can to a worthwhile non-profit group. figure out what you’re really good at and think about how your contribution could help make this a better world. I’m a lesbian geek. This is my way. If you’re reading this than I’m reaching you. Good. It’s a start. Now it’s your turn. DO SOMETHING…ANYTHING…NOW. Not only America but the world needs you now. If you don’t believe me read the article. We live in a patriarchy. A bunch of pasty, rich fat old white guys are going to kill us all if we don’t stop them. I think it’s time the women start taking our power back.

Pentagon ‘three-day blitz’ plan for Iran
Sarah Baxter, Washington
THE Pentagon has drawn up plans for massive airstrikes against 1,200 targets in Iran, designed to annihilate the Iranians’ military capability in three days, according to a national security expert.
Alexis Debat, director of terrorism and national security at the Nixon Center, said last week that US military planners were not preparing for “pinprick strikes” against Iran’s nuclear facilities. “They’re about taking out the entire Iranian military,” he said.
Debat was speaking at a meeting organized by The National Interest, a conservative foreign policy journal. He told The Sunday Times that the US military had concluded: “Whether you go for pinprick strikes or all-out military action, the reaction from the Iranians will be the same.” It was, he added, a “very legitimate strategic calculus”.
President George Bush intensified the rhetoric against Iran last week, accusing Tehran of putting the Middle East “under the shadow of a nuclear holocaust”. He warned that the US and its allies would confront Iran “before it is too late”.
