Iran: Who Is The Real Threat?


By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 25 January 2012

 

In 2007, when the Bush regime was threatening to attack Iran, with substantially the same justification that the U.S. is now using to impose sanctions, carry out secret operations, and prepare the population for more war, World Can't Wait made a quiz.  We administered it on dozens of college campuses, and on street corners. 


Students, including on the "elite" campuses, did terribly. Most flunked. But it got quite a few to think. We're offering it again, updated, and now online. I'm encouraging you to take the quiz.  If you answer all 7 questions correctly, and provide a mailing address, you'll get the first-ever World Can't Wait quiz prize (it's a surprise). I just want to know if you've been paying attention, and to convince you how effective asking people questions is when you want to help them learn.  Later this week, we'll have the quiz in a hand-out form as well.

In the last week, Iran is under even morepressure from the U.S. and NATO countries:

European Union Pushes Toward War with Iran by Chris Floyd

Killing Iraqis Makes Us Safer...and Other State of the Union Lies by David Swanson:


Obama...claims that wars are ending and threatens war on Iran.  You can't make this stuff up.  The Project for the New American Century can.  You can't:

"As the tide of war recedes. . . .  America is determined to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, and I will take no options off the table to achieve that goal.  But a peaceful resolution of this issue is still possible . . . if Iran changes course."

Got that?  Unless Iran, which the Secretary of Defense says is not developing a nuclear weapon, ceases developing a nuclear weapon, we're going to war.  But we regret it very much and it will hurt us more than it hurts you.  

"America remains the one indispensible nation in world affairs."  That makes the rest of the world -- you guessed it -- dispensable.
