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."
