Obama’s deal with Netanyahu: Iran must surrender Civilian Nuclear Program, but military action needs to wait

Standard

March 6, 2012

Hillary was interviewed by Scott Horton on Antiwar Radio today, you can listen to it here, to discuss Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s visit to Washington and the various public statements, by Netanyahu and President Obama associated with the visit.  The Obama Administration congratulated itself over not letting Netanyahu tie it to a specific red line for Iranian nuclear development, short of building an actual weapon, which Obama would “enforce” with American military power. But Hillary points out that Obama has let Netanyahu push him into a more dangerous position–namely, that unless the Iranians surrender their current nuclear program (which they won’t), Obama may now be on the hook to use American military power against the Islamic Republic’s nuclear infrastructure.  All after November 2012, of course.

  1. So, America’s “Weapons of Mass Destruction” deceptions continue–promoted by phony US “antiwar” activists and critics from ex-CIA shills like Flynt Leverett to Scott Horton of Antiwar.com

    What American propagandists of all political stripes simply refuse to admit is that the Iranian nuclear issue is nothing more than a propaganda pretext for the United States and Israel to put pressure on Iran. It won’t make a difference what concessions Iran makes, as the USA-Israel will only be emboldened to press it further.

    One has only to look at the sinister WMD game that America played against Iraq, where each Iraqi concession only emboldened America to aggressively push harder with “weapons inspsectors/spies,” destabilization campaigns, bombing, and ultimately war against Iraq.

    The WMD issue is thus just like the terrorism issue, the humanitarianism issue, and of course the ultimate Anglo-American lies of promoting freedom and democracy.

    They are only cynical pretexts to advance the predatory American agenda of overthrowing and subjugating nations around the world, particularly those with significant energy resources.

    Control of energy resouces and utlimately expanding American global dominance is the REAL agenda not only with respect to Iran but around around the world.

    Everything else is a lie.
