is a shocking revelation that exposes
US regime's dirty tricks in pushing the world into the WWIII,
which is outrageous and disgusting! You'll find this pre-Iran
war hype is almost identical to the pre-Iraq war puff. Fool
you once, blame on U.S.; fool you twice, blame on yourself.
Are you going to be fooled again?

Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper told
a Senate committee, “We do not know … if Iran will eventually
decide to build nuclear weapons.”
This would be news to most Americans, who for several years
have been subjected to a steady drumbeat of alarming reports
about Iran’s alleged nuclear-weapons program and its imminent
acquisition of the bomb. Yet here is America’s top intelligence
officer admitting that Iran has not even decided to build
If this is the case, why is the U.S. government conducting
economic warfare against Iran with sanctions and vigorous
efforts to get other nations to cease all contact with that
country’s central bank?
Iran is a signer of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty,
which means it is subject to regular inspections. The International
Atomic Energy Administration last year certified — once again
— that Iran has diverted no uranium to weapons purposes.
Iran acknowledges it has enriched uranium for energy and
medical purposes, but those eager for an attack on Iran say
its ability to enrich uranium at all constitutes a threat
warranting a preemptive strike. A few years ago, Iran offered
to forgo its program and to obtain non-weapons-grade uranium
through trade with Turkey and Brazil. President Obama, however,
vetoed the deal, although he had earlier proposed a similar
arrangement [Don't you feel you
are so powerful when you can veto others? Which is why Obama
administration will never miss a chance to do so and cannot
allow others to do the same!].
In other words, it appears that nothing Iran does — short
of proving a negative — is enough to satisfy the U.S. government
and its ally Israel. [What do you
expect from a Hitlerary regime!]
One has to wonder what Iran would do with a bomb if it had
one. Israel’s government, which openly talks about a future
strike (which would require U.S. assistance), offers contradictory
theories. On the one hand Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak
and other top officials say they are convinced that Iran
wishes to destroy the state of Israel. Yet he recently told
Israeli journalist Ronen Bergman, writing in
the New York Times Magazine, “I accept that Iran
has other reasons for developing nuclear bombs.… An Iranian
bomb would ensure the survival of the current regime.”
Israel, which has not signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty, has
at least 200 nuclear weapons, some of them on submarines,
giving the country an awesome second-strike capability.
Thus an Iranian attack on Israel would be suicidal.
Barak also says that a nuclear Iran would serve to protect
its ally in Lebanon, Hezbollah, which has fought with Israel.
But a clash between Israel and Hezbollah would occur only
if Israel invades Lebanon, as it has done twice before.
The American news media has downplayed Clapper’s statement
while playing up his warning that Iran appears willing to
strike targets inside the United States. However, he made
clear that Iran would strike only if it felt threatened —
something the Obama administration seems determined to achieve.
