Do The Freakin Math

Liberals and conservatives alike frequently rely on limited evidence, personal experience, religious beliefs or gut emotions to determine solutions for complex problems. From immigration to global warming - taxes to terrorism - or health care to free trade - analytical study is rare. Science based policy making isn’t the way of Washington. And the consequences are catastrophic. Change is urgently needed. Just do the freakin’ math.

Pandora's box not only option on Iran

This week U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) exposed his enormous and lethal ignorance regarding Iran's capacity for responding to any US or Israeli military attack on its sovereign soil. He said "If you use military force against Iran, you've opened up Pandora's box. If you allow Iran to get a nuclear weapon, you've emptied Pandora's box. I'd rather open up Pandora's box than empty it.

Senator Graham appears to be oblivious to Iran's capacity for biological warfare...or even conventional or cyber attacks against our oil lifeline. Attacking Iran would likely result in the emptying of Pandora's box. Iran's possession of nuclear weapons is not the problem. The real threat is Iran's leaders genocidal threats. They should be held accountable for the extremely serious crime of inciting genocide.

But without world law...the only other option is world chaos. Opening or emptying pandora's box... isn't the only two options we have. Indicting criminals and putting them into a box is not an impossible option. We just have to overcome our fear of world government. The threat of Pandora's box should help us overcome that fear.
