Is Iran really a nuclear threat?

Investigative journalist Gareth Porter dispels myths about Iran’s alleged nuclear program: Israel has been crying wolf about Iran & nukes since the 1980s (including likely forging documents), while the IAEA has been declaring Tehran’s compliance; the Ayatollah has maintained that WMDs are “unIslamic,” and Iran hasn’t used any (even against Iraq’s WMDs); Iran needs ballistic missiles as a deterrent since it has no air force; and it has never threatened aggression toward Israel.

False claims against Syria lay the groundwork to destroy more Israeli targets

In 2007 the IAEA promoted falsehoods about Israel’s bombing of a supposed nuclear reactor in Syria, burying evidence that the site was NOT a reactor. Claims that a sarin gas attack last April was carried out by the Assad regime are similarly dubious. Just as the false “WMD” claims against Iraq were used to destroy Iraq, these claims seem aimed at taking down two more of Israel’s targets: Syria and Iran.
