  • "Meeting the Challenge: US Policy Toward Iranian Nuclear Development" (September 19, 2008);

  • "Meeting the Challenge: Time is Running Out" (September 15, 2009);

  • "Meeting the Challenge: When Times Runs Out" (June 23, 2010); and

  • "Iran's Nuclear Program: Status and Breakout Timing" (September 12, 2011).

They all urged a robust US response "to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons capability" even though BPC and Obama officials know Tehran's development is entirely peaceful, commercial, and legal according to Nuclear Non-Proliferating Treaty provisions.

America's business is war. Permanent war's its longstanding agenda. When enemies don't exist, they're invented. Washington pushes the envelope aggressively. Pretexts serve as justification. Imperial madness for unchallenged global dominance follows. As a result, humanity's threatened, today more than ever.

On February 1, Reuters headlined, "Group urges credible US military threat to Iran," saying:
