Preparing the troops

As the mainstream media reports that Iran “will resume converting uranium ore to gas at a nuclear plant near the central city of Isfahan within two days”, are we being prepared for inevitable sanctions or possible invasion of another sovereign nation? Is Iran really a nuclear threat?

The latest US intelligence – its accuracy best described as suspect after the Iraq WMD debacle – claims that Iran is 10 years away from manufacturing highly enriched uranium to make a nuclear weapon. Let’s repeat that: 10 years. No urgent threat, no incoming weapons on Israel, no smoking gun.

Keep these “facts” in mind in the coming months.
