Barak restates Israeli hard line on nuclear Iran. Netanyahu lies through his teeth (again).

Defence Minister Ehud Barak restated Israel's fears of a nuclear-armed Iran on Thursday after his top general clashed with the government's line by describing the Islamic republic as "very rational" and unlikely to build a bomb.


Speaking on CNN on Tuesday, Netanyahu said he would not want to bet "the security of the world on Iran's rational behaviour". A "militant Islamic regime", he said, "can put their ideology before their survival".

The portrayal of Iran as irrational – willing to attack Israel with a nuclear weapon even if it means inviting catastrophic retaliation in kind – could bolster a case for pre-emptive bombing to take out its atomic facilities. [It could if people are stupid enough to buy into Netanyahu's blatantly false propaganda. He's a proven liar -- a major, unrepentant, categorical liar. There's video of him bragging about how he lied to the US. Sarkozy was right in telling Obama that he, Sarkozy doesn't trust Netanyahu. Only a fool would.]

    Will Netanyahu vow to blow his own head off if he's proven wrong about Iran's so-called nuclear-weapons program?

    You can't prove a negative condition. That's the evil beauty of the b.s. lambasting nuclear weapons opponents as 'the real danger' even after their participating for decades in a self-established certification program to show any reasonable person that their concerns to promote disarmament were not based in duplicity.

      I hit the like on your comment, John, because of the sentiment. However, you and I both know that it has been proven that Iraq had no WMD and certainly no active nuclear-weapons program, all contrary to the assurances of the likes of Donald Rumsfeld, who later said he never said they did. The videos of him saying they did and that were put in his face showed otherwise.

      Now, if only someone could have gotten Donald to say that if no WMD turn up that he'll blow his own head off.... Well, of course that's not what I want, but he was a complete, lying ass, as is Netanyahu.

    Well, they don't say that Iran has a nuclear-weapons program anymore but that Iran only hasn't proven it doesn't, meaning Iran hasn't opened up enough and made itself dependent upon the US Empire. The US now says "suspected." They never said that before I kept calling them liars and demanded proof, etc. Now they think that they backed off enough to win. They haven't.

    Netanyahu is a stinking liar out to attack Iran in a rivalry for Empire in the region. Everyone knows it. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are being forced to confront it. Netanyahu thumbs his nose at the US. He authorizes illegal "settlements" at his whim and then holds out his hand for US taxpayer dollars and American bunker busters. He should be told to repent or go back to Hell where he comes from.

    It's just an endless stream of lies about Iran and sensationalizing Iranian bluster, I'm not saying I'm a fan of the Iranian sharia clerics running the show there. They have a convert to Christianity, a pastor, on death row because he converted after the allowable age (they say) and refuses to recant. If they kill him, murder him, all bets are off. It's that serious.

    Of course, none of that says anything about Obama's crazy and wicked drone use, etc. Obama's just shrewder than Netanyahu is all.
