Neocon Uber-Hawks Want War on Iran
Warmongers want permanent wars.
by Stephen Lendman
In January 2009, Obama succeeded Bush. Neocons stuck around. They infest Washington. War gets their juices flowing. They urge it on Syria and Iran.
Potential catastrophic consequences don't matter. Uber-hawks don't worry about them. It's someone else's problem.
Romney is America's Netanyahu. Both talks about red lines, deadlines, and timelines. Claims about an existential Iranian threat don't wash. Both know it. They'll say anything further their imperial aims. More on Romney below.
Previous articles discussed Netanyahu in detail. Haaretz presents both sides. Ari Shavit plays resident hawk. He's both senior correspondent and editorial board member. On September 29, he called Iran's nuclear threat "as daunting as ever."
"It's clear: one way or another, Iran is going to change our lives," he claimed. "If Iran becomes a nuclear power".(t)here will be no chance for peace and no prospect of normality".The far-reaching implications of the challenge posed by Iran's nuclear project were known a decade ago."
"Instead of curbing Iran, the United States became entangled in Iraq and Afghanistan. Israel was preoccupied with settlements instead of being preoccupied with centrifuges. Europe froze as though crippled."
