Netanyahu Warns of Attack on Iran, Confesses to Israel Nuclear Arsenal at UN

Politics / Middle East Sep 27, 2012 - 12:18 PM GMT

Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pulled out a chart to describe the threat that Israel's nuclear arsenal of at least 200 nuclear missiles poses to the middle east and wider world at the UN General Assembly.


Okay so the actual presentation was that of a propaganda cartoon of an exploding bomb in a play for the need for an near imminent attack on Iran:

That was along the lines of Colin Powell's infamous propaganda play acting in the weeks leading up to the Iraq War, when he presented a model vial of anthrax that he strongly implied was stockpiled in Iraq and therefore warranted imminent military action that the subsequent invasion revealed did not exist, nor were any WMD's that were said to exist found despite an 8 year occupation.

It appears politicians and their elite masters require such simplistic publicity stunts to explain to the brainwashed dumb masses (not this websites readers) what the threat is and what needs to be done (Orwell's "Animal Farm" style), what the actual truth is irrelevant as we saw with Iraq, after at least 100,000 deaths and a couple of trillion dollars consumed by the elite controlled military-industrial complex.

Now, don't ms-understand this article, I am not advocating that it is good for Iran to go nuclear, but paying attention to a lying Israeli PM that is sitting on an arsenal of over 200 nukes is just as bad as paying attention to a lying Iranian President who IS aiming for nuclear arms that depending on where you look is between 2 and 5 years away from achieving.

The actual truth lost in the propaganda war is one of deterrence by means of mutually assured destruction. Which whether we like it or not is the most probable outcome therefore is it not better to build bridges as Goby and the Cowboy did during the 1980's rather than sow the seeds for a constant finger on the trigger cold war with all of the associate risks that flash points between Israeli and Iranian madmen would bring.

After all no amount of bombing is going to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, therefore it is infinitely better to erase the conflict than erase the region! Just as the arab spring is seeking to erase the conflict between east and west as the populations rise up against dictators and totalitarian states, though at the same time that is the precise direction that the West has been drifting towards i.e. becoming totalitarian police states where the brainwashed masses are fed simplistic propaganda messages as illustrated by Benjamin Netanyahu's cartoon in advance of acts of war.
