  • Netanyahu in 1992: Iran close to having nuclear bomb
    • stanchaz: It's worth noting that the US has, since April, backed well away from any claim that Iran is even working on nuclear weapons. The US position is that Iran has the capability to develop nuclear weapons if it decides to...and it hasn't decided to. That is effectively Iran's position too. They could do it...but they do not want to as their religion regards nuclear weapons as a sin and an abomination. In a country supposedly by God that pulls a fair bit of weight. If they were found to be doing what they have repeatedly, from the very highest levels, stated unambiguously is a very serious sin....it would undermine the legitimacy of the regime.

    • Agreed. Carter was the better President of the two. His policies on energy and the environment would have set the US up for what was to come later....instead, we got Iran/Contra illegal oil for weapon trades and the myopic, often ignorant short-termism of the GOP generally....and they are even worse now.

    • Israel uses the threat of an Iranian nuke as one of its tools for preventing any two-state solution in Palestine. Obama came to office talking peace in Palestine because the problem represented a serious, long term threat to American security. What happened? Very soon after Israel bombed Gaza and renewed the cycle of verbal aggression toward Iran. Why do they do this? So they can continue to annex land in the Occupied Territories and gradually - slowly - ensure that any two-state solution becomes completely impossible. That is the agenda. It has always been the agenda for Netanyahu and people who walk with him. "Iranian nukes" are just a convenient lie to distract the fools in the US and elsewhere. It's worked for 20 years. There are some serious fools around.
