Georgina, of course you are right. I am afraid though that many Americans would once again rally around the flag and the president in case of a military conflict with Iran-- particularly since it now looks that this would be sold as another phase of the "war on terrorism," not as preemptive actions against Iran's nuclear program.

WHEN SO MANY AMERICANS ARE AGAINST THIS WAR AND NOW TO ESCALATE IT INTO IRAN, DO WE NO LONGER HAVE A DEMOCRACY WHERE THE PEOPLE ARE REPRESENTED. IF THEY START ANOTHER MESS AND IT IS NOT BACKED BY THE PEOPLE, THIS COULD LEAD TO MUCH TROUBLE IN THIS COUNTRY BY THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES. THEY HAVE ALREADY BEEN DEMONSTRATING AGAINST THE WAR. WHY DO THE POLITICAL HEADS FEEL THE PEOPLE ARE NO LONGER IN CHARGE. WHAT HAPPENED TO A NATION OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE.
