Barak: Israel 'very far off' from decision on Iran attack Israel believes Iran itself has not yet decided whether to make a nuclear bomb, according to intelligence assesment to be presented later this week to U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Dempsey. < snip > The Israeli view is that while Iran continues to improve its nuclear capabilities, it has not yet decided whether to translate these capabilities into a nuclear weapon - or, more specifically, a nuclear warhead mounted atop a missile. Nor is it clear when Iran might make such a decision. SOURCE . . . This is very interesting in light of the fact that our government and the corporate media has been treating Iran as if it already had a nuclear weapon for years. This needs to be repeated . . . So much for your warmongering neocon heros and the corporate media's credibility. Lies on top of lies to make all their lies sound good. When are you people gonna learn? But wait! That's not all! Despite Misleading Hype, No Government Leaders Think that Iran Is Building a Nuclear Bomb. American and European leaders say that there is no evidence that Iran is building a nuclear weapon. Even Israel – which has threatened to attack Iran on its own – now admits the same thing. Earlier this month, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said: Are they [the Iranians] trying to develop a nuclear weapon? No. But we know that they’re trying to develop a nuclear capability. And that’s what concerns us. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper confirmed in a Senate hearing – following the release of the classified National Intelligence Estimate in 2011 – that he has a “high level of confidence” that Iran “has not made a decision as of this point to restart its nuclear weapons program.” Mohamed ElBaradei – who spent more than a decade as the director of the IAEA – said that he had not “seen a shred of evidence” that Iran was pursuing the bomb. Six former ambassadors to Iran within the last decade say that there is no evidence that Iran is building nuclear weapons, and that Iran is complying with international law. The International Atomic Energy Agency states: All nuclear material in the facility remains under the Agency’s containment and surveillance. In other words, all nuclear fuel is accounted for and is being controlled and monitored by the international agency tasked with nuclear non-proliferation. SOURCE . . . Yep, very interesting indeed. But you know what's even more interesting? The "majority" of you folks will choose to ignore and or deny this information in the rush to destroy another nation and kill more brown skinned people. Same as you ignored the facts leading up to the slaughter and displacement of thousands of Iraqis and Libyans.
