The Drumbeat of War: More Lies from G W Bush & Associates | September 27, 2007

THE DRUMBEAT OF WAR/BUSH & IRAN

Bush Administration hacks, including generals, intelligence agents, Senator’s Lieberman & Kyl, & the Prince of Darkness [Dick Cheney] have been trying to make a case for what seems to be an imminent attack on Iran. To do so they have flooded the media with various arguments about how Iran is the primary backer of the insurgency in Iraq, supplying weapons and raw material for bomb making. The reality is that there is actually very little, if any, in the way of concrete evidence supporting these arguments. Testimony from various military figures has been rife with contradictory statements, denial of Iranian involvement etc. Today’s Huffington Post has an excellent article that speaks directly to this issue, debunking the administration claims point by point.

In the past, false claims of aggression against the USA include the attack on the USS Maine in Havana Harbor, which led to the Spanish American war, and the Gulf of Tonkin “Incident”,  which served as a pretext for an escalation of our involvement in Vietnam, have long since been proven to be false, conjured up to provide cover for imperialistic aims. The Bush claims about Iran bears an terrible resemblance to these past transgressions & falsehoods. We must not fall into the same trap.

Gareth Porter’s article is a must read.

  1. It’s time to give diplomacy and in person fact finding a chance. Why don’t members of congress start an unending schedule of visits to Iran to see first hand and open some dialogue. If they can keep at least one member in country at all times it will be less inviting to drop a big one on them.
