The easiest campaign promise??

Both War Party candidates (Mr. Romney and Mr. Obama) have stumbled all over themselves — and each other — to promise the government of Israel  they won’t let Iran produce a nuclear bomb.

Unless they begin to believe their own propaganda as Kennedy did (which inadvertently fired-up the nuclear arms race between the U.S. and the Soviet Union), it’s the one campaign promise they’ll both be able to easily keep at almost no cost.

Here’s why:

Iran to Allow Nuclear Inspectors Into Secret Military Complex
Iran has announced it will allow international nuclear inspectors to visit its secret Parchin military complex. Iran has long said its nuclear program is for civilian purposes only, but some international analysts have speculated Iran may be using the Parchin complex to do research relevant to nuclear weapons. It is not clear when inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency will visit the site. –Democracy NOW! HEADLINES, March 06, 2012

SEYMOUR HERSH: …let me say again, there is no evidence that our intelligence community or even the Israeli intelligence community has — and I know that firsthand — suggesting that there’s an ongoing bomb program. So we are now — the United States is now in the position of increasing sanctions and pressuring all sorts of economic pressure on the Iranians to stop — the whole purpose of the economic sanctions is to stop the Iranians from making a bomb that we know they’re not making. –Training Terrorists in Nevada: Seymour Hersh on U.S. Aid to Iranian Group Tied to Scientist Killings

So everyone, including U.S. and Israeli intelligence, knows that the Iranian government isn’t trying to make a bomb. Unless a seriously careless Iranian scientist slips on a banana peel and pushes the wrong 10,000 buttons in exactly the right sequence, there’s little chance Iran — which, unlike Israel with its estimated 100 secret nukes, has signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty  — will build even one bomb.

How hard can it be to stop someone from doing something they’re not doing? So, is the War Party candidates’ mutual promise to the government of Israel to prevent Iran from producing  a nuclear bomb the easiest campaign promise?

Or, as with Kennedy and the nuclear arms race, Iraq, and now Iran, is THIS the main danger – – –

  1. "Romney campaign stands by Mourdock".

    Women.. For Goodness sake.. WAKE UP..

    If ever there WAS a sign from God, this would be one of them.. These 'men' who are completely uneducated and ignorant about a woman's body, want to be in charge of the laws that Govern YOUR body. There is no other way to put it. Welcome to the year 1642 where science and medicine take a back seat. Don't even dare mention the earth revolves around the sun.

    The Governor has said if he wins the Presidency that he would sign legislation if presented, that bans abortion. And you have GOP senators and Congressmen who have now said that women who get raped have no medical worries as they can't get pregnant if they are 'really' raped, and now with Mourdoch, it is 'God's Gift'.


    Vote like YOUR life, your daughter's life and health depends on it.. It's not playtime anymore, they are playing for keeps and total control.Have no doubt, this is 'the big grab'.

  2. Why hasn't Romney exposed Obama for his biggest lie, the promise to stop rendition, i.e., kidnapping, torture, and murder? Answer: Because he wants to do it also. When it comes to fundamental values, we have a "one party system". No challenges to this are allowed. Control of the lamestream media is easy when the rulers control the money, by way of fiat (paper) currency and legal tender law, i.e., compulsory participation in a rigged game. But knowing what is wrong is only the first step. Knowing how to correct the problems gov't creates is necessary also. We should start with attacking the root of our problem by abolishing it. Government does not protect, it destroys everything it touches.

    1. Hard to improve on that, Don. But here's how the War Party (both branches) conspire to keep things out of mass consciousness – – –

      …what she [the moderator in the Ryan/Biden "debate"] was clearly asserting was that, in terms of the array of national security challenges America faces, Iran is the most important, at the top of the list. This idea is ludicrous; it's laughable. Iran has a minuscule military budget when compared to the United States.

      … the question that she asked, if you noticed, was strictly about the efficacy of military strikes. Will a military strike on Iran advance American interests, or will it achieve a strategic goal? …the assumption that the United States has the legal and moral right to attack Iran is something that both the Republican and Democratic parties agree on and don't even debate. …

      The same is true for the sanctions regime. … That, too, is completely excluded from the debate. So you don't just have third-party candidates being excluded by these [debate] rules; what you have is the vast bulk of political opinions and political facts being excluded because these moderators are chosen very specifically to ensure that they will embrace only the orthodoxy shared by both parties while posing as objective, neutral and non-ideological actors Glenn Greenwald: Presidential Debates Highlight "Faux Objectivity" of Mainstream Journalists

  3. Why is it that people always shout "bias" when reasonable people (or in this case a large panel of experts) express opinions they disagree with? I feel badly for your students; their teacher is obviously narrow-minded.

  4. Generally I do not learn article on blogs, however I would like to say that this write-up very forced me to take a look at and do so! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thanks, quite nice post.

  5. your résumé. You do if Ambassador to Saudi Arabia means what doing the "important work" needed under current policies
