With all the saber rattling on Iran - mostly from Israel and us - it might help to revisit a video from a few years ago, the last time sabers were rattled, for a reminder of what's at stake. Beware: sinister images ahead.

"History does not begin with the latest reaction of someone who feels aggrieved.  Much like a football referee seeing only the last fist flying, blind to the first punch, the retaliating party is the one who gets the penalty."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
