AIPAC Conference Day Two
AIPAC wants war on Iran.
by Stephen Lendman
AIPAC operates lawlessly. It's an unregistered foreign agent. It prioritizes militancy, war, occupation harshness, apartheid, racist hate, and Israel uber alles.
It's a dagger in the heart of rule of law principles and democratic value. It menaces world peace. Its annual conferences display the worst of its agenda.
A rogue's gallery of speakers participate. Day two featured Joe Biden and Netanyahu. They spoke back-to-back. Biden did in person. Netanyahu followed by satellite. He remained home in Israel.
Iran was the topic of choice. Obama's "not bluffing," said Biden . He "cannot and does not bluff."
He lied saying "We're not looking for war. We're ready to negotiate peacefully. But all options including military force are on the table."
He lied again adding "While that window is closing, we believe there is still time and space" for diplomacy. None existed for 34 years. None exists now.
America remains hostile. It's intolerant of independent states. It wants subservient pro-Western ones replacing them. War is an option of choice.
Biden called Iran an "existential threat." He lied saying so.
"We have a shared strategic commitment," he said. "Let me make clear what that commitment is: It is to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, period."
It's "important that the world is with us if we have to act."
AIPAC spokesman Marshall Wittmann thanked Biden, saying:
"We are very pleased by the vice president's strong statement that the president is not bluffing in his commitment to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. It was a strong and eloquent speech."
