Humanity's debt to JFK

Next Tuesday 22 November is the 48th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. The whole world is indebted to JFK more than to any other single individual in history for preserving the peace and, on no less than three occasions, preventing global nuclear holocaust. This was originally posted in response to an article Armistice Day of 18 November on johnquiggin.com.

Congressman Ron Paul opposes Iran sanctions as act of war

US Republican Congressman and past Presidential contender, Ron Paul opposes a bill to impose sanctions against Iran. In his speech he describes how exactly the same bogus justifications were used for the imposition of sanctions against Iraq. Rather than satisfying the demands of the warmongers wielding power in the US at the time, they only paved the way for the subsequent illegal invasion.

Article includes editorial comments "And what if, contrary all to the known evidence, Iran was found to be pursuing a nuclear weapons program?" and "Wouldn't a US invasion bring democracy to Iran?" and contains embedded YouTube broadcast "Beneath the hype: Is Iran close to nukes?" featuring retired CIA analyst, Ray McGovern. This was first published on Information Clearing House on 23 Apr 10. Please donate to ICH to help them continue their vital work.
