Israel Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu called Iran a "nuclear duck" on Monday and the drumbeat of war with Iran is now set to a nice hip-hop tempo.
It's worth looking back at the always sunny Ron Paul's thoughts on war with Iran. In a column for the Washington Report in November he warned that Iran will be another Iraq:
Suicide terrorism did not exist in Iraq before we got there. Now it does. There are no known instances of Iranians committing suicide terrorism. If we invade and occupy Iran, expect that to change, too.
Sometimes it can be very uncomfortable to ask the right questions and face the truth. When a slick politician comes along and gives a much more soothing, se1f-congratulating version of events, it is very tempting to simply believe what we would like to hear. But listening to lies does not make us safer, even though it might make us feel better about ourselves.
