Joseph Cirincione, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress and author of Bomb Scare: The History and Future of Nuclear Weapons, discusses the true nature of Syria, North Korea and Iran’s nuclear programs, the neoconservatives lies about them, their motives, the Cheney Cabal’s attempted end run around the president, the willingness of the mass media to continually repeat whatever the government says about Iran, the fragility of the UN’s non-proliferation regime and the possibility of a nuclear war against Iran.

  1. It was a very sly move by Israel to hit Syria but not specify what the target was, and thus allowing the zio-nazi-cons to speculate that it was a nuclear site. Usually if a country hits a threatening foreign target they would say what it was in order to justify the strike. But lucky Israel gets a free pass to do anything it likes. Ain’t no new thing.

  2. Even if it’s true that Iran is supplying arms to fighters in Iraq that end up killing American soldiers, it does not justify bombing Iran.

    Maybe if the U.S. weren’t occupying Iraq and setting up permanent bases near the Iranian border they wouldn’t have to worry about their soldiers getting killed by Iranian weapons.

    The U.S. just looks for excuses to go to war with other countries.
