A dread article which portends to war that echoes of recent conflicts in the past.

Here is a worrisome article from Time Magazine in which the author lays out 'the path to war' with Iran. I say worrisome because it was articles such as this one that marked the beginnings of the drumbeat to war with Iraq for similar reasons: to halt an Arab nation from possessing nuclear weapons.

Irrespective of one's convictions as to whether such an aim constitutes a sufficient casus belli for war, I trust that all people of good heart, mind, and soul would accept that a peaceful resolution to such conflicts between nations is preferable to an armed conflict. Let those of us who believe in prayer renew our commitment to dedicate ourselves to praying for peace and love to triumph over war and hatred in this world. Together with all people who yearn for peace to prevail here and now, let us commit to work to attain that cherished goal by whatever means we can legitimately use to that end.http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,2137429,00.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+timeblogs%2Fswampland+%28TIME%3A+Swampland%29&utm_content=Google+Reader
