Bogus Iranian Nuclear Threat

Fraudulent threats used as pretext for war.

by Stephen Lendman

Red lines, timelines, deadlines, sanctions, sabotage, subversion, cyber attacks, assassinations, saber rattling, falsified IAEA hype, ad nauseam warmongering, Netanyahu/Barak bluster, spurious accusations, manipulated to fail P5+1 talks, and inflammatory headlines up the stakes for war.

When America and Israel plan them, they're coming. Pretexts are easy to invent. False flags precipitate them. Expect Washington to use them against Syria and Iran. War weary Americans are manipulated for more of what they want ended. 

Israelis get the same hype. The region heads for rubicon trouble too risky to cross. Most Israelis and Americans oppose it, yet stay sidelined in silence.

No matter how contained or widespread, war is hell. Nuclear war is unthinkable. On September 7, Progressive Radio News Hour listeners heard Francis Boyle explain the potential deadly consequences. Discussion focused on Iran.

He said a British think tank estimated a minimum 2.8 million Iranian deaths. Radiation poisoning could kill double that number. All Israelis will be threatened. Many will die. 

The entire country and large parts of regional ones may be irradiated. US Gulf forces, ships, and facilities will sustain heavy losses.

In January 2012, Boyle spoke publicly about The Criminality of Nuclear Deterrence Today . He discussed his book by that title. Nuclear terrorism is unconscionable. America alone used these weapons. It's poised to do so again.

After multiple acts of aggression since 9/11 alone, "(t)oday the world is at a precipice of another world war," said Boyle. Attacking Iran could precipitate it.

Tactical nuclear weapons are fully integrated into US military theaters. Field commanders have full discretion to use them. They're one of many WMDs in their arsenal.

War on Iran was planned years ago. GW Bush once publicly threatened World War III. Boyle said no leader was so irrational since Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo.

Bush warned Russia, not Iran. He told Moscow not to challenge America's agenda. US leaders then and now are over the top. They'll risk WW III by attacking Iran. 

At issue is regional and global dominance. It's about replacing independent governments with subservient ones. It risks blowing up the world to control it. What better definition of insanity than that.
