In the wake of the latest IAEA report on the status of Iran's nuclear program, the confrontational tone of the US media and politicians has escalated considerably. What's more, the same media and politicians have been distorting or falsely characterizing

? This vid is old - made in response to Bush Jr.'s admin. Iran's leaders say their nuclear program is for energy and medical research so how come they won't allow U.N. inspectors access to their sites? If there's nothing amiss then U.S. and E.U. economic sanctions would be lifted. The sanctions - not war - have been the post-Bush response.

Whether it is an old or a new video,the fact remains:
Israel is ready to fight till the last American soldier and the last American dollar. Remember that the current IAEA is not independent and is actually a dear friend of USA. Have a look at wiki leaks. Let us not forget weapons of mass destruction allegation by G.W Bush against Iraq.The Biggest lie in history.

Hmmm, must be taking their cues from the Iranian media policy and/or FAUX news/hate radio.

The media is part of the problem...not part of the solution.

I agree with Marilyn L. The media has great responsability.

I don't think Iran is quite as dangerous as they want us to think they are.

If they could effectively attack us, they would. Instead, we are kept hyper with their threats. Today they can't or they would.............. tomorrow if they can they will.

We must remain alert! and we must be dangerous to them.

Iran has no nuclear weapons, though Israel claims they do. Israel also claimed that Iraq was developing nuclear weapons in the '80's and bombed the Iraqi facility at Osirik, tests have proven that there was nothing to do with nuclear weapons going on there.
Israel also claimed Syria was developing a nuclear capacity and bombed Syria ---- again, no evidence after the bombing and the site was examined by nuclear experts.

Once again we have Israel crying wolf, there were no weapons of mass destruction and Israel was never in any danger.
How long does the world have to put up with Israeli provocations to goad the US into war? And while we're on the subject lets quit giving them our needed at home tax dollars.

Seems, some sorry censored pitiful censored CENSORED (or, possibly though not likely at all: some strange unexplicable phenomenon) has aaAaaaaaaaaggggain been very busy deleting my comment(s), unless, of course, they disappeared magicallly. Kind of a very-well-established habit meanwhile. There is something EXTREMELY ROTTEN in care2 ...

And isn't it .. errr shall we say: fascinatingly remarkable, how (very targeted) someone/thing/whatever here @care2 keeps, for years now --per-sis-tent-ly-- deleting (some) comments (of some users), WHEREAS --in appalling sharp contrast-- care2 has not even managed to delete spam postings when the spammer's profile gets deleted ?

correction: that should of course read

A Secretary of Defense’s memo "describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran." --
