Is Obama Building a Case for War with Iran?

An assessment by U.S. spy agencies concludes that Iran is prepared to launch terrorist attacks inside the United States, highlighting new risks as the Obama administration escalates pressure on Tehran to halt its alleged pursuit of an atomic bomb.  The Washington Post

 

We’ve been down this road before haven’t we, only last time it was Bush and Iraq playing cat and mouse. We said they had weapons of mass destruction, they said they didn’t; however they stopped inspectors from verifying what they were saying was the truth. As we all know, that was a big mistake.

A DISTINCTION WITH NO DIFFERENCE

ONE IN THE SAME

Now we have our fake President Obama (what Constitution?), the man that now can detain any American citizen without due process simply by stating the person is a terrorist, the man who has already ordered the killing of an American citizen abroad, is playing cat and mouse with Iran.


Defense Secretary Leon Panetta recently made clear in an interview with CBS that the U.S. will not allow Iran to get a nuclear bomb; period.

Walter Russell outlined Team Obama’s position in Via Meadia.

If Washington must bomb Iranian facilities to stop them, Obama will bomb.

[...] Panetta said “the United States does not want Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. That’s a red line for us. We will take whatever steps are necessary to stop them. A nuclear Iran is unacceptable”.

When US secretaries talk about “whatever steps are necessary” they are not usually talking about holding one more meeting of the sanctions committee.  They are thinking shock and awe and not cookies and tea.

Is it possible the Iranians are foolish enough to really go after the U.S. with an “all out war” or will that be the propaganda our obedient FOOS (Friends of Obama) in the MSM will be spewing in the upcoming months?  

Salon’s Glenn Greenwald thinks so. In fact, he says the some in the MSM appear to be banging the war drums with relish and in a manner that would have been anathema if Bush 43 was targeting Iran. 

Is war with Iran inevitable before November of 2012 and will another event like 9/11 be manufactured as justification? 

All of which leads to whether you can you believe your own eyes and believe our fake President?
