Beating Up on Iran Continues

At issue is regime change.

by Stephen Lendman

It's continued for decades. Iran's a prime target of choice. Washington deplores independent governments. 

It wants pro-Western ones replacing them. It doesn't care if they're democratic, despotic or anything in between. Subservience to Washington alone matters.

Israel's agenda is likeminded. Former Foreign Minister/ultranationalist extremist/serial liar/indicted felon Avigdor Lieberman said "anyone who thinks sanctions or negotiations will stop Iran is wrong."

On February 11, Netanyahu repeated earlier threats and lies, saying:

"The three external challenges that we face begin with Iran. I spoke about Iran's plan to develop nuclear weapons. Its nuclear weapons program continues unabated." 

"It's focused on enrichment because if they can continue and complete the enrichment of high enriched uranium, then they'll have enough to produce enough material to produce a nuclear bomb."

"I drew a line at the UN, last time I was there. They haven't crossed that line, but what they're doing is to shorten the time that it will take them to cross that line." 

And the way they're shortening that time is by putting in new, faster centrifuges that cut the time by one third, so that Iran is putting itself in a position to cross the red line and have enough material to produce one nuclear bomb's worth of highly enriched uranium."

"This has to be stopped, for the interest of peace and security, for the interest of the entire world."

"How do you stop it? Well, you have to put greater pressure on them. You have to upgrade the sanctions." 

"And they have to know that if the sanctions and diplomacy fails, they will face incredible military threat. That's essential. Nothing else will do the And it's getting closer."

He urged US/Israeli cooperation on Iran. He wants its independent government toppled. He's willing to wage war to achieve it.
