Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continues to press his case for military action against Iran despite apparent resistance from the United States. Speaking to NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Netanyahu said Iran is close to developing the enriched uranium needed for a nuclear weapon.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: “So I think that as they [Iran] get closer and closer and closer to the achievement of weapons-grade material — and they’re very close, they’re six months away from being about 90 percent of having the enriched uranium for an atom bomb — I think that you have to place that red line before them now, before it’s too late. We have to stop them. Don’t rely on containment. That is not the American policy. It would be wrong. It would be a grave, grave mistake. Don’t let these fanatics have nuclear weapons. It’s terrible for Israel, and it’s terrible for America. It’s terrible for the world.”
Despite his warning of a six-month window before Iran advances its alleged nuclear weapons program, this wasn’t the first time Netanyahu has made such a prediction. In 1992 — 20 years ago — Netanyahu said that Iran was just three to five years from developing a nuclear weapon and urged U.S.-led international action to stop the purported threat.
Tabacco: In 1920 British Prime Minister, Lloyd George, prognosticated, “If we leave Iraq now, there will be Civil War!” During George W. Bush’s Illicit War Crime Invasion of Iraq, members of his administration and GWB himself recycled and reiterated that same unproven prognostication, “If we leave Iraq now, there will be Civil War!”
Do you see the similarity? See how Sophistic Propagandists use FEAR to get you to let them use War to make Profits at the expense of innocent Foreign men, women and children, whose only crime is living on top of GREAT OIL RESERVES!
Tabacco: I consider myself both a funnel and a filter. I funnel information, not readily available on the Mass Media, which is ignored and/or suppressed. I filter out the irrelevancies and trivialities to save both the time and effort of my Readers and bring consternation to the enemies of Truth & Fairness! When you read Tabacco, if you don’t learn something NEW, I’ve wasted your time.
