During Netanyahu's testimony on invading Iraq back in 2002 -- he claimed that it's not a matter of IF there needed to be a regime change in Iraq and Iran.
But for Bibi and Bush, it was only a question of WHEN and HOW that regime would change.
And what great things were we supposed to expect to happen when we invaded Iraq and toppled Saddam?
According to Bibi in 2002 -- we would see vague and immediate good things - including a natural change in regime in Iran.
The thing is: We listened to him then.
We invaded Iraq. The regime changed. We didn't find any weapons of mass destruction.
And there was no sudden eruption of democratic regime changes. And there was no movement towards peace in the region.
What did happen?
Well, for one thing, many of the Ba'ath party members that we ousted during the invasion -- they became what we know now as ISIS in the wake of a destabilized Iraq.
Bibi and the Bush administration and the Republican establishment were all completely wrong about Iraq.
Does that really mean we should ignore their frightened screams about Iran?
Yes -- because they're singing the exact same tune as before.
And the fevered pitch of this song is just as out of tune with reality as ever before.
Iran isn't a rogue nation.
If Iran truly disregarded international law and the international community - like the war hawks scream that they do -- they wouldn't have approached the negotiating table to begin with.
Keep in mind that this isn't a deal between the US and Iran -- this is a binding international agreement negotiated between six countries, ratified by the United Nations, and supported by the strictest inspection regime ever devised.
