A living dog is better than a dead lion.—Henry David Thoreau
"As elected leader of the UK's closest ally, he can't be ignored. But making him, his wife and four adult children the honored guests of the Queen risks legitimizing his destructive policies, his cronyism and his leanings towards autocracy."—The Guardian

If you’re not careful, Mr. President, hawks will lead you into a war that will be worse than anything the world has seen outside of WW II.—Brittain Ladd
We a group of Iranian women’s movement activists and women’s rights defenders strongly condemn US efforts to stoke yet another war in the Middle East, this time against Iran. The Trump administration’s maximum pressure campaign, its bellicose posturing and sanctions, hurt the Iranian people most, especially women, children, minorities, refugees, the chronically ill and those with disabilities.—Iranian Women Activists
"Depression, anxiety, still can’t deal well with loud noises. I was assaulted by one of my superiors. When I reported him, with witnesses to corroborate my story, nothing happened to him. Nothing. A year later, he stole a laptop and was then demoted. I’m worth less than a laptop"—Schmox

While I firmly believe that Iran’s government should be held accountable for its sponsorship of terror, regional aggression, illegal detention of dual U.S.-Iranian nationals, and repression of its own citizens, the Trump administration’s go-it-alone policy toward Iran has alienated us from our key allies and raised the possibility of sparking another conflict in the Middle East. —Sen. Dianne Feinstein
The current, very worrying standoff between pro-Iran forces and anti-Iran forces in the Levant runs a high risk of jolting the whole region into a catastrophic military conflagration whose dimensions, duration, and costs on the region’s peoples cannot be tabulated or even, really, imagined. But the standoff has implications far beyond that long-troubled region, too.—Helena Cobban

The Whites have carried to these (colonial) people the worst that they could carry: the plagues of the world: materialism, fanaticism, alcoholism, and syphilis.

The sole result of the activity of the colonizers is: they have everywhere aroused hatred.—Martin Luther King Jr.(not)

What they should be doing is calling me up, sitting down. We can make a deal, a fair deal, we just don't want them to have nuclear weapons - not too much to ask. And we would help put them back to great shape. What I'd like to see with Iran, I'd like Iran to call me. Financially, they have great potential.— Donald Trump Today
