Will Israel Attack Iran This Time?
Israeli leaders and their supporters are again pounding the drum about the need to nip in the bud the danger they profess to see coming from Iran. No one ever mentions the key, "high-confidence," unanimous judgment by all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies (published in a National Intelligence Estimate in November 2007) that Iran stopped work on a nuclear weapon in the fall of 2003 — yep, that's right; EIGHT YEARS AGO.
The evidence supporting that judgment is continually reviewed very closely, as you might imagine. It has be reaffirmed every year since...as recently as February and March 2011. There are still some honest analysts and managers working in our intelligence community.
The Fawning Corporate Media (FCM), however, avoid any allusion to this; go ask your neighbors if they think Iran is trying to get the bomb.
The constellation of stars is such that Israel's hard-right leaders may see an opportunity to zap Iran, and to suck in the United States in the process. Truly, it is nothing short of amazing that they might be able to bring thisi off!
