Why does Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak say Iran would attack the United States if it had just one nuclear weapon? (Source: "Barak claims Iran would nuke US." Press TV. December 17, 2008.)

He said speaking of Iran that, "If it built even a primitive nuclear weapon like the type that destroyed Hiroshima, Iran would not hesitate to load it on a ship, arm it with a detonator operated by GPS and sail it into a vital port on the east coast of North America."

What an evil thing to say. He doesn't know that. Why would the Iranians commit national suicide to hit the U.S. with one such weapon? They wouldn't do that without the U.S. first having attacked Iran the way the U.S. attacked Iraq (for pure empire's sake) and then only as what they would see as a very last resort.

Barak is bearing false witness. He's just talking psychological propaganda in a lame attempt at turning U.S. public opinion into doing yet another absolutely evil thing such as what George W. Bush and his neocon team did when it invaded Iraq on a pack of proven lies.
