One Lie Or Another, War With Iran is Coming


Gareth Porter discusses the impending bombing of Iran, the false accusations about Iranian involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, how the casus belli has been changed from their nuclear program to the “EFPs” being used in Iraq due to the Joint Chief’s opposition and how the neocons continue to push through their agenda due primarily to the failure of Condoleezza Rice to check Dick Cheney.

  1. And to think the way the televised mass media is even now featuring talkers who theorize that Bush is just talking — that he won’t attack Iran; And to hear a major panelist on the McLaughlin Report sputter that if Bush ever did invade/bomb Iran, than Bush would be impeached. Why are the American people denied Horton, Raimondo, Porter to be featured on these ‘mainstream’ shows? Truth, Bush is inclined to feel entitled to kill any foreigner in the name of his God.

  2. Can Bush afford to start another war at only 25% approval?

    Didn’t Clinton launch his Balkans “humanitarian” intervention at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal? What a good way to deflect attention. If things go wrong at home, start a war abroad..
