Keep investing in Iran and threatening our security-Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) NY.
I'm sorry senator, but Iran poses no threat to our security. It has not been found to diverting any of it's enriched uranium away from it's nuclear power program. Moreover, we have nuclear weapons, thousands of them, which we keep as a deterrent against attack by any unfriendly nation with the knowledge that if they were to attack us first, we could completely wipe them out within a matter of minutes. We have, over the years, spent billions of dollars on this. We can hit any country on the planet. Iran cannot hit any country on the planet, because they do not possess, nor have they been found to be seeking, nuclear weapons.
“Ahmadinejad shouldn't just be protested in NYC, he should be arrested and tried for incitement to commit genocide.-Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.)
Thankfully, we have something like Twitter these days, where our politicians can make bold statements, released in to the stream of propaganda with out ever having to be explained. I take this to be a reference to a much maligned and mistranslated statement that is not true. Pity our elected representatives are so ill-informed, but ignorance is bliss when you're making emotional statements.
“Once again, President Ahmadinejad has come to the United Nations to spout duplicitous and anti-Semitic propaganda before a world stage,”-Jerrold Nadler (D)NY. I wonder, did Rep. Nadler receive an advanced copy of Ahmadinejad's speech? Is asking Israel to sign the NNPT and open their weapons program to IAEA inspections anti-Semitic?
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) also questioned the timing of Ahmadinejad's arrival in New York given the recent bomb scare in Time Square.
"It's sort of appalling that six blocks away at the U.N., Ahmadinejad is coming tomorrow to a conference on nuclear non-proliferation. What hypocrisy,"-Sen Chuck Schumer (D)NY.
Did Iran plant the bomb? Or was the car bomb conveniently placed there to make this sort of association? Another false flag operation?
The demonization of President Ahmadinejad is the first step in the propaganda run up to a military strike against Iran. While I certainly don't have the most respect for the man, he hasn't been proved to be a liar. Both the IAEA and the NIE agree that Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons within it's nuclear energy program. So why all the hysteria?
