It'll prove higher intelligence was more liability than asset. Given Washington's rage for dominance, things may turn out that way.
A Final Comment
In mid-February, FAIR's (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting) Peter Hart asked if Iranian magnets are the new aluminum tubes.
In months preceding the 2003 Iraq war, media scoundrels, TV talking heads, and Bush administration officials lied. They said Saddam Hussein attempted to buy "thousands of specially designed tubes" to advance his nuclear weapons program.
Their "diameter, thickness and other technical specifications (had) persuaded American intelligence experts that they were meant for Iraq's nuclear program."
None existed. Most people didn't now. This and other false accusations became pretexts for war. Destroying the cradle of civilization followed.
Pre-2003 Iraq no longer exists. Millions died. Conflict continues. More die daily. Human misery is incalculable. No end in sight looks near.
Washington perhaps destroying Iran the same way. Propaganda wars precede hot ones. Tehran faces numerous false charges. New accusations follow earlier ones.
Media scoundrels march in lock step with imperial plans. Sources relied on are serial liars.
Henry Kissinger may or may not have said "If you can't hear the drums of war you must be deaf." It's true either way. Permanent war is official US policy.
Current ones rage. More are planned. One country after another is ravaged. It bears repeating. Humanity may not survive Obama's second term. Rogue administration policies make it appear less likely.
