Scott Horton, from Antiwar.com, explains why there’s no good reason to go to war with Iran. Aside by the fact that all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies are on record saying Iran is not attempting to build a nuclear weapon and the difference between enriched industrial uranium and enriched weapons grade uranium is something like 3.6% to 90% and more (which is no small difference and not an easy gap to fill), a war with Iran could mean the end of the United States!
