Is War Against Iran Inevitable?

Some items you should be reading - carefully:

U.S. News and World Report - 6 Signs the U.S. May Be Headed for War in Iran

Remember that Bob Marley quote I left you with this morning?
The people, who were trying to make this world worse... are not taking a day off. How can I? Light up the darkness.
That's a good quote to live by right now. The folks who fantasize about a "long war" (and whose bank accounts will be richly padded by such a war) are not taking a day off at all. If they succeed, they will make this world worse.

I have a version of the following quote on a poster in my office - it's been with me for easily over two decades dating back to my anarcho-punk days:
When the earth is ravaged and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, and who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. They will be known as the Warriors of the Rainbow
It's a Hopi prophesy that seems to be particularly apt. Each one of us needs to do whatever we can to light up the darkness, by words and deeds.
