Pot calling Kettle a terrorist

Alt Tv/Fleet FM Breakfast News Comment
Pot calling Kettle a terrorist
US Vice President Dick Cheney, taking a tough line toward Iran, described the country's government on Sunday as a "growing obstacle to peace in the Middle East". Cheney, in a speech to a think tank, also accused Tehran of practicing "delay and deception" regarding its nuclear programme and warned of consequences if it did not comply with the West's demands that it halt sensitive nuclear work. The US vice president's harsh rhetoric toward Tehran came just a few days after President George W. Bush warned that nuclear-armed Iran could lead to World War Three. I’m sorry, Dick Cheney is calling Iran an obstacle to peace? Well seeing as America is the main obstacle to peace in the Middle East with their continued support of Israel and illegal Israeli settlements which continue because of a 40 year oppressive occupation that America supports with billion dollar military ‘aid’ every year and who is also currently nuts deep in another cluster fuck of stupidity in Iraq and Afghanistan, I suppose technically Cheney is the most qualified when it comes to being an obstacle to peace and thus can identify it in others. America’s hollow warnings of the threat Iran poses to the rest of the planet sound vaguely familiar. America has no credibility any longer when it comes to crying weapons of mass destruction wolves.

The Big Lie: ‘Iran Is a Threat’
by Scott Ritter

On every point, the case made against Iran collapses upon closer scrutiny. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), mandated to investigate Iran’s nuclear programs, has concluded that there is no evidence that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons program. Furthermore, the IAEA has concluded that it is capable of monitoring the Iranian nuclear program to ensure that it does not deviate from the permitted nuclear energy program Iran states to be the exclusive objective of its endeavors. Iran’s support of the Hezbollah Party in Lebanon - Iranian protestors shown here supporting Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah during an anti-Israel rally - while a source of concern for the State of Israel, does not constitute a threat to American national security primarily because the support provided is primarily defensive in nature, designed to assist Hezbollah in deterring and repelling an Israeli assault of sovereign Lebanese territory. Similarly, the bulk of the data used by the United States to substantiate the claims that Iran is a state sponsor of terror is derived from the aforementioned support provided to Hezbollah. Other arguments presented are either grossly out of date (going back to the early 1980’s when Iran was in fact exporting Islamic fundamentalism) or unsubstantiated by fact.
