Irresponsible Anti-Iranian Fear-Mongering
Imperial America wants regime change by any means.
by Stephen Lendman
Irresponsible anti-Iranian political and pack journalism rhetoric sound ominously like spurious Iraqi WMD threats in the run-up to the 2003 war.
In his January State of the Union address, Obama said:
"Let there be no doubt: America is determined to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon and I will take no options off the table to achieve that goal."
At the same time, Netanyahu told Israel's Knesset:
"Only a combination of crippling sanctions and putting all the options on the table can make Iran stop" its nuclear program.
Republican presidential aspirants also use the issue irresponsibly. Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum all support bombing Iran's nuclear sites and assassinating its scientists. Only Ron Paul's strongly opposed but hawkish din drowns him out.
