Charles Krauthammer is not an unintelligent man – yet, somehow, he seems to think everyone else is.

In his latest piece he accuses Obama of standing by “as Iran rapidly approaches nuclearisation”.

The problem with this rhetoric that ‘Iran is rapidly approaching nuclearisation’ is that it’s been done to death in past rhetoric going back years. For example, here’s what I wrote more than two and a half years ago on the subject:


Other periods of time have been mentioned over the three decades since the Iranian people kicked out the Shah as to how long it would take the Iranians to build a nuclear weapon, but six months seems to a very popular nominal figure. Never mind, of course, that there has not been a skerrick of evidence to even suggest that the Iranians are doing anything more than building nuclear reactors for generating electricity or creating medical isotopes for medical purposes. But that hasn’t stopped the propagandists who seem to insist that Iran is still only six months away from having a nuclear weapon.

If I started the list of claims that Iran would have a weapon within six months from back in 1980 when the Shah went, you’d still be reading it in, well… six months time! So, I’ll cut short the list and start it off with some of the earlier claims of this century.

Back in August 2003, the LA Times reported that Iran could have a ‘nuclear weapon in six months’. More than two years later in September 2005, Israel claimed Iran would have ‘nuclear weapon in six months’. Then, nearly three years later in June 2008 we were told again that Iran would have a ‘nuclear weapon in six months’. A year later, in July 2009, Ha’aretz reported that ‘Germany believes Iran could have a nuclear bomb in six months’.

Now, in the very latest statement dated 23 February 2010, made by so-called ‘Iran weapons expert’, David Albright, Iran, in his expert opinion, is now only… wait for it; six months away from having a nuclear weapon. This is the very same David Albright that was telling us more than a year ago in February 2009; “In as quickly as a few months, Iran would be able to have enough weapons-grade uranium for nuclear weapons”. It’s also the very same David Albright who told the CBS ’60 Minutes’ show way, way back in January 1999 that Saddam Hussein was “within a few months to a year of having a nuclear weapon”.

Albright? Not very! He’s the original boy that cried ‘Wolf!’ Unfortunately, the media will continue to echo his and similar cries and there will be those that believe them. Eventually the West, led by Israel and the US, will attack Iran based on these lies, but the worst of it is; hundreds of thousands or maybe millions of dead later, the rest of world will go along with it without a murmur.

Perhaps Krauthammer is not really any brighter than Albright after all.

One can only hope that there are plenty of folk out there who are brighter than either of them!

The JEWSA started the Persians on this road...back in the 60's...

Rosenberg :

A group of "American" business and political leaders are building a pro-Israel media "war room" in Washington, D.C. The group will be called "Emet" —which in Hebrew means "truth." Emet will try to address biased media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and also make the case that the conflict, while serious and important, pales in comparison to the larger geo-strategic threat posed to the United States and the West by Iran and Iraq, both of whom are trying to build and/or acquire weapons of mass destruction. Funding Emet is Leonard Abramson; he sold U.S. Healthcare to Aetna in the mid-1990s for $8.9 billion. Abramson has recruited a powerful board of directors, including Bernie Marcus, founder of Home Depot; Les Wexner, founder of The Limited; Edgar Bronfman Sr., who once owned Seagram's; and Lou Ranieri, a major Wall Street player who now co-owns one of Israel's largest banks. Also joining the board are Jeane Kirkpatrick, former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, and Jack Kemp.

More Zionazi perfidy :

Let's say for a moment that Iran actually acquired modern centrifuges, as opposed to the old style they have now. And then let's assume they decided to enrich beyond 20% and go for 90%+ so they could build a bomb. A. Would we figure this out well in advance before they had their first 90% isotope? B. Would they need to upgrade their equipment to do this or can they enrich to 90% if they just keep putting it back in and going for higher enrichment? C. If they decided to collect enough 90% to build a bomb, how long would it take from the decision to the actual bomb sitting on top of a missile?

And if everyone who has any authority, truly believes Iran is a rational actor and very much invested in self preservation. . . Why would their acquiring a nuke, or even ten, as a deterrent, be such a big deal for anyone other than Israel or someone else stupid enough to invade this nation that has not attacked another country in 200+ years?
