    I've never seen a single item on this site - either in the diaries, or on the front page - that has been supportive of a war with Iran.  On the other hand, I see anti-Iran-war stuff on almost a daily basis.

    I noticed you didn't include any links in your diary.  Why was that?

      What the diary wanted to show is that this site has changed in my opinion.  It is not a black and white change. It is everyone's right to form their own opinion.

      Being passive about a possible Iran war is not OK with me. Both Obama and Netanyahu have made threats against Iran. Obama has said that all options are on the table--even nukes were not excluded. Bibi has said just a the last couple of days that a "red line" followed by military actions was urgent. Thankfully the White House did not agree.

      However, we have two nuclear armed countries the US and Israel threatening Iran which is a non-nuclear country. I do not read the majority of stuff on Daily Kos. I would assume that this info has appeared here.

      War is costly. Peace is priceless!

        I'd be happy to link to all of the non-existent stories favoring war with Iran, but unfortunately, they don't have URLs, because they don't exist.

        As opposed to stories chastising political figures for saber-rattling towards Iran.  There are a ton of those.  Just about everything that comes up on a search for "Iran" tags, for instance.

        It's great that you don't think people should be "passive" about the threat of war with Iran.  The problem with your diary is that this site has not been even remotely passive about that.
