Are we looking at a third war now?

We must be.  It seems as though we are gearing up for a potential strike against Iran.  In a move that can be seen as nothing less, the United States has shipped 387 "Blu" bombs to our military base on the island of Diego Garcia.  Anyone who has any common sense has to understand that this would be a humongous mistake right now considering that we are already in 2 wars that are a major drain on our resources and military as a country.  After the billions of dollars that have been drained by waging wars all over the planet since 9/11, why would we even entertain the thought of a third war.  Empire Building?  Regime Change?  Oil?  My guess is all three and my guess is that any attack on Iran would be disastrous for our country financially not to mention making our country look even better in the eyes of the world.  Haven't we sacrificed enough of our young men and women in wars that should have never been waged?  Wars started under false pretense and lies by OUR government for nothing more than nation building and natural resources.

“They are gearing up totally for the destruction of Iran,” said Dan Plesch, director of the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at the University of London, co-author of a recent study on US preparations for an attack on Iran. “US bombers are ready today to destroy 10,000 targets in Iran in a few hours,” he added.

“The US is not publicising the scale of these preparations to deter Iran, tending to make confrontation more likely,” he added. “The US ... is using its forces as part of an overall strategy of shaping Iran’s actions.” - SOURCE

Does this seem familiar?  Does anyone remember all the government propaganda preceding the Iraq war in 2003?  All the WMD's that Iraq had and how they helped in 9/11.  If you remember correctly all those claims were later found out to be completely false.  Is this another instance of fear mongering to get an already war exhausted country behind their government....or do they even care how much public support they have this time because my guess is, there would be NONE.

When will we, the American people, decide that we have had enough of the lies and actions of our government and take action and find representatives that aren't in the pocket of large multinational corporations and bankers? It is time for a change....not just more of the same.
