Justin Raimondo takes on the IAEA report on Iran’s nuclear weapon possibilities, which he calls a “farrago of half-truths and insinuations.”
It hasn’t been that long ago – although in the collective mental processes of the “Coalition” public, even last month is forgotten lore – that we were sweeping the nuclear secrets trading of A.Q. Khan (a Pak scientist) under the rug. Now we’re going to turn around and use them for propaganda. If there is any lesson the rest of the world has learned from our Middle East practices, it must be that we are truly the most ruthless of “friends.” You can never be sure on which side we will place you. (Speaking of friends, I thought it was quite amusing that Mr. Sarkozy called Mr. Netanyahu a liar and Mr. Obama complained about having to put up with it on a daily basis – pot and kettle amusing.)
Mr. Obama or whatever hapless fool is there at the time.
Raimondo quotes the report, in part…
Can you say, Aluminum Tubes?
I don’t know if Iran is pursuing nuclear weaponry, but I’d consider them wise to do so simply for their own protection as a deterrent (if pursuing nuclear weaponry can be considered wise in any way). And, of course, they’d HAVE to do it without the US and its enablers knowing about it, wouldn’t they? Therefore it would have to be a secret program. Anyway, Raimondo thinks the whole thing is simply the next step toward turning Iran into Iraq. And he has plenty reason to think so. Read his whole article for more. Sadly, the IAEA report doesn’t highlight the words “may” and “might have” like Raimondo does.
....but hey, do what you want....you will anyway.
