Netanyahu was on TV for an hour earlier tonight doing a whole “presentation” purporting to prove that Iran is lying when it says it isn’t working to acquire a nuclear weapons capability. He did things like show a whole closet full of CD folders and, according to him, each one was “incriminating” — a word he used over and over. He said that Iran currently had enough nuclear knowhow to be able to soon produce seven Hiroshima size nuke bombs — wow, that many, what an arsenal! Netanyahu said again and again that no nation would ever work to attain that degree of atomic readiness unless they had a current intention to use them.
The whole show reminded me of President Junior’s show and tell that, with Colin Powell’s assistance, supposedly “proved” that Saddam Hussein’s Iraq was making weapons of mass destruction and thus represented “a clear and present danger” to the USA. I also remember President Junior at the Correspondents Dinner jokingly looking around saying “those weapons of mass destruction got to be around here somewhere.”
It would be nice if the American Movers and Shakers weren’t taken in by this appallingly phony show and tell, but I think that’s too much to hope for and that Iran is on top of the war mongers hit list and war will go there real soon.
