In spite of Mohammed Al Barradei’s repeated reports and assertions that Iran is still struggling to enrich uranium for power production on an industrial level, those itching for a war with Iran are not perturbed.
The intelligence information gathered by the Unites States regarding Iran’s technological breakthrough that could lead Teheran to an atom bomb in less than three years bodes well with President George Bush’s political desperation.
The new intelligence indicates that Iran is making accelerated progress in acquiring the required amount of enriched uranium for assembling its first nuclear bomb.
Once again we are seeing the intelligence being fixed to support the policy and to appease Israel.
Until recently, American intelligence estimated that this would only happen in 2015. Now US intelligence is falling into line with its colleagues in Israel and is estimating that an Iranian bomb can be expected as early as 2010.
Notice that no mention is made of new evidence or new discoveries? These sources expect the public to accept these lies just because they say so.
The crux of this article lies in the suggestions that with their political backs to the wall, both Bush and Olmert may welcome a distraction like a military confrontation with Iran to salvage their legacies.
It seems that just a few hours prior to the publication of the Winograd report, the prime minister prefers diverting the public’s attention to a completely different channel. Similar to Bush, Olmert also knows that when the public is apprehensive it tends to unite behind its leadership.
