I loved this intro so much when Heather pointed me to it that I want to share it with you. Yes, there was scary music and pictures of missiles launching, but there was also a terrific montage of President Obama being smart and Bibi being the fearful scare monger that he is.

Think of it as sane versus insane, or reasonable versus unreasonable, right there in living color.

Of course we all understand that Fox "News" is beating the drums for more war in the Middle East, and to some extent they've been successful, given that a recent poll showed that 62 percent of Americans think we should send ground troops to fight ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

It's easy for them to answer that way now, but what if their kids were the ones drafted to do the fighting?

Can you help us out?
