“The president had offered a new definition of “aggression” against this country and a new war doctrine to go with it. He would, he insisted, take the U.S. to war not to stop another nation from attacking us or even threatening to do so, but simply to stop it from building a nuclear weapon — and he would act even if that country were incapable of targeting the United States. That should have been news.” – Tom Engelhardt,“The 0% Doctrine,” March 12, 2012.

“So why the aggressive posture towards Iran? Why have we heaped the harshest set of economic sanctions in the world on Iran – which Columbia University Professor Gary Sick has called “an act of war”? Why do we have Iran militarily encircled with military bases and client states? Why have wesupported Israeli proxy terrorism on Iranian soil? Why is it that not a week goes by without an explicit threat of preventive attack on Iran? It can’t be for the nuclear weapons program: it doesn’t exist.” – John Glaser, “The Real Threat From Iran,” March 12, 2012.
“Just a few days ago I met a well-known American journalist, Mr. Seymour Hersh, and he was saying that American senior officials know without a doubt that Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons, and the issue is Iranian sovereignty. The issue is Iran’s independence. So, it’s quite clear that the policies of the United States and its European partners are not really directed at Iran’s nuclear program. It’s directed at Iranian independence and sovereignty.” – Seyed Mohammad Marandi, Press TV, January 11, 2012.

“In his speeches, Binyamin Netanyahu likes to fire up his audiences with frequent references to the Holocaust, Jewish destiny and the fate of future generations. In light of this doomsday rhetoric, one wonders if Israel’s prime minister can always distinguish between the real dangers confronting the country and shadows of past traumas. This question is crucial, because to confuse one with the other could sentence Israel to relive those echoes and shadows.” – David Grossman, “It is Israel’s fears, not a nuclear Iran, that we must tame,” March 12, 2012.

The American/Israeli-Iranian stand-off is shrouded in mystery. We are submerged in a sea of smoke, and we can all see a fire slowly forming above us on the surface as we sink lower into the bottom of the abyss.
