  1. what about Israel nukes ?????……no mention there….how come ??

    are you going to send your kids over there when the fighting breaks out ????….. Arianna Huffington…..i doubt it

    this is nothing but media lies !!!!!

    1. Last Spring, Rose Gottemoeller, an assistant secretary of state and
    Washington's chief nuclear arms negotiator, asked Israel to sign the Nuclear
    Non-Proliferation Treaty. Israel refused.

    2. The United Nations passed a resolution calling on Israel to sign the
    Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and to submit to inspections. Israel
    refused.

    3. The IAEA asked Israel to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and to
    submit to inspections. Israel refused.

    4. Iran's formal notification to the IAEA of the planned construction of the
    backup fuel-rod facility underscores that Iran is playing by the rules of
    the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty which Iran has signed.

    5. Iran allows IAEA inspections of all its facilities.

    6. Contrary to face-saving claims, it appears that the US and Israel were
    both caught off guard by Iran's announcement. The reasoning is simple. Had
    the US or Israel announced the existence of he new facility before Iran's
    notified the IAEA, it would have put Iran on the defensive. As it is now,
    the US and Israel seem to be playing catch up, casting doubt on the veracity
    of Israel's claims to "know" that Iran is a nuclear threat.

    7. The IAEA and all 16 United States Intelligence Agencies are unanimous in
    agreement that Iran is not building and does not possess nuclear weapons.

    8. In 1986, Mordachai Vanunu blew the whistle and provided photographs
    showing Israel's clandestine nuclear weapons factory underneath the reactor
    at Dimona.

    9. Israel made the same accusations against Iraq that it is making against
    Iran, leading up to Israel's bombing of the power station at Osirik.
    Following the invasion of 2003, international experts examined the ruins of
    the power station at Osirik and found no evidence of a clandestine weapons
    factory in the rubble.

    10. The United Nations has just released the Goldstone Report, a scathing
    report which accuses Israel of 37 specific war crimes and crimes against
    humanity in Gaza earlier this year. Israel has denounced the report as
    "Anti-Semitic (even though Judge Goldstone is himself Jewish), and the
    United States will block the report from being referred to the War Crimes
    Tribunal at the Hague, thereby making the US Government an accessory
    after-the-fact.

    We all need to be Joe Wilson right now. We need to stand up and scream,
    "LIAR!" at every politician and every talking media moron that is pushing
    this war in Iran. And we need to keep dong it until they get the message
    that we will not be deceived any more.

    Israel wants to send your kids off to die in Iran, and YOU are the only one
    that can stop them.

    1. Good post, James…keep it up!

      Greenwald obliterated Arianna Huffington in this debate…she looked like an Israeli propaganda stooge here.

      An anti-semite isn't someone who hates Jews, it's someone the Jews hate!

    2. Would you take a look at Albright..!!! Gawd!!! Ye OLDE half million Iraqi kids as worth it gas bag. There isn't a ring deep or hot enough in Hell for someone like her.

      1. Imagine the outrage if some Arab diplomat said a half million dead Israeli children was worth it. What a pariah that person would be.

        1. The media whores would have a knipschen fit of all fits. It would be 24/7/365 propaganda from sunrise to sunset and constant heavy rotation in the interim. You wouldn't be "allowed" not to know what an evil and insidious louse the rat bag was. So how is it Al-less-than-bright manages to slither around blathering her poison? Because big media agrees with her and doesn't take her to task for her murderous philosophy.

  2. Arianna has always been worthless, as those of us familiar with her in California have known for years, a chameleon who changes her spots to facilitate whatever self promotion she has going at the time.

  3. We need a program of denazification in the United States. Our freeze-dried media and many of our citizens believe the United States has a god-given right to kill as many brown people as it wants, pretty much anytime and anywhere. That's the real subtext here. The melting pot has morphed into a death star.

    1. Actually the melting pot has long since been broken. But what we really need is a program of de-Israelification and de-imperialism.

  4. Oh, Ariana, your jewish roots are showing, you whore for Israel. The biggest threat right now is the country you live in! Wake UP!!!!!

  5. "Iran doesn't acknowledge the holocaust",,,"Iran wants to wipe out Israel",,"Iran is a threat to Israel",,

    Even if any of this WERE true it doesn't affect America. It just shows how American politics is really just about an imperialist Israeli-centric agenda.

  6. Would someone please tell me why our children and grand-children should pay for all the war games that our current governments continue to get involved in? I for one wish to pass on a better legacy to our children. If wars with Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran are necessary, then conscript Americans equally and up our taxes to pay the bill. In the meantime, I prefer not to waste my time listening to "self-enlighted" persons debating the issue. The problem is that the majority of current Americans would not fit the bill for these wars.

  7. Good ol' HuffPoo…she'll huff and puff and blow yer house down…watching her describe the situation is like watching a bad Zsa Zsa Gabor impersonator…darling…

  8. Couldn't say it any better than Glen. Awesome job Glen. Just Amazing how Arianna is now a warmongerer and a propagandist for not the neo-cons but for the neo-liberal administration. Look voting block of America. Stop voting for Democrats and Republicans. They are criminal political parties of our time and must be removed from power. They are both totalitarian parties and imperialists and haters of the constitution. All supporters of these two parties should be sworn into the military and forced to fight the wars they love to initiate.

  9. Wow- Glen was able to make more relevant and direct points, right on national TV, than just about anyone I've heard on the US media in decades. Interesting how the host finally turned on him for directly stating what the talking head had pretty much said: that Iran was evil.

    It's refreshing honesty and a breath of fresh air, so naturally, we won't be hearing from him again.

    Sad but TRUE!

    1. A lot more mothers will have to sacrifice their sons and daughters for that to happen! Only those brave mothers could reveal the truth and stop this insanity.

  11. Did you notice that as Greenwald spoke they showed picture of missiles being launched, However as Huffington spoke they did not show picture of bodies mangled and killed in war. To do so might have indicated some sort of balance. Fortunately Greenwald words where very powerful. Ron Paul has also made a good video on this topic.

    1. There is something disturbing to me of having purposely distracting video footage running in the background when you should be concentrating on the substance of what these people are saying. I have seen the same "technique" used elsewhere and it is deceitful and manipulative to say the least.

  12. This “Iranian threat” is all about Zionism. Our news media is all about Zionism. America is all about Zionism. It is insanity.

  13. Just questioning Israel at Huffington's network, I was banned from commenting–5-6 years ago and still is.
    Did you catch the Huff introduction at the beginning–Just arrived from Israel holidaying and FOX's posted signage-"IRAN defiant but DANGEROUS"

    1. Not much different than getting the boot from FreeRepublic where Freedom means what THEY say and you'd damn well never question it.

  14. American people never learn.It is not just Huffington that is indocrinating and lying to the American people.One should watch the Christian T V programs and see how men who should tell the truth are leading their flocks astray by knowingly repeating lies .Their programs always about Israel!

  15. the pentagon correspondent believes the new nuclear facility is " just north of Qum in northern IRAQ" (0:43)

    I never knew the Iraqis were helping the Iranians develop nuclear power…..or is it that the MSM still hasn't found how to differentiate between iraQ and iraN :-))

  16. Arianna was introduced at the start of the program as "recently returned from Israel". She must have been wined, dined and briefed on the talking points.

    What I would really like to see is her up against Prof Juan Cole, but that would be a no contest.

  17. Many parents still encourging their children to join the military!Proud Fathers,Mothers ,Grandparents of Mrine,Navy,Airforce etc!

  18. Ariana is business woman before anything. She would follow the money no matter what. Just look into the amount moneys and their sources that have been flowing her direction lately! You could draw your own conclusion. She may have been black mailed as well!

  19. Huffpo is an absolute joke: establishment "liberalism" at its worst. If you want to know what the liberal version of the Zionist agenda looks like, read Huffpo. I agree with the poster above who suggested we need a de-Zionization program in this country, and people like Huffington, Murdoch and other pro-Israel propagandists trying to lie us into another war should face war crimes charges. This isn't freedom of the press here, it is outright lies and treason in support of an alien nation manipulating our people into a war of aggression against a country that has shown no hostile intent against us.
