IRAN CLAIMS ENRICHMENT IS SOLELY FOR ELECTRICITY GENERATION

IRAN IS JUDGED 10 YEARS FROM MAKING A BOMB

EXPERTS BELIEVE THAT IRAN IS THREE TO FIVE YEARS FROM MAKING A NUCLEAR BOMB

IRAN COULD PRODUCE NUCLEAR BOMB IN 16 DAYS, US SAYS

IRAN MIGHT HAVE BOUGHT 250 NUCLEAR BOMBS FROM UKRAINE

The above "news" comes courtesy of MSM. It's obvious there's an agenda at work here to scare and confuse us all. The plans to go to war with first one country in the middle east and then another have been a part of the agenda for some time, but it wasn't always so scary that Iran wanted to go nuclear:

"The first thing - of what we do know, and it's amazing how many Americans seem to skate over this - the first nuclear reactor given to Iran was given by the United States in 1967 - a five-megawatt trigger reactor, research reactor, under the Eisenhower Atoms for Peace Program. Still operated ... The other thing that Americans forget is that in 1974, the shah announced a policy of 23,000 megawatts of nuclear energy in Iraq. The US reaction? [Former US national security adviser and secretary of state] Henry Kissinger beat down the door to be sure that two US constructors, General Electric and Westinghouse, had a preferred position in selling those reactors. We did not say, "it's a stupid idea, why would you want to do that when you are flaring gas and you have immense oil reserves?" We said, "That is very interesting; it's an example of how the Iranian economy is moving and becoming modern." Imagine in Iranian ears how it sounds now when we denigrate that capacity. They remember. We were sellers of nuclear reactors and wanted to be sellers of nuclear reactors to the shah."

16 days seems really, really unlikely. 5-10 years I could believe, but shouldn't there be some proof that they are actually building one? I am sure they will probably parade some sort of "proof" like they did with Iraq's WMDs. I wonder how many will believe it after being lied to so much? Probably with the propaganda of paranoia at a fever pitch, most will be too afraid to wonder if they are being lied to.

Same old tired propaganda. This time I'm afraid that they'll skip the phoney diplomatic posturing, pull another synthetic terror event and away we go.

You know I have been waiting for another "terrorist attack" for a while now. It is necessary for them to continue with their plans and start a military draft.
