Obama Goes with Neocon Flow on Iran

By Robert Parry

President Barack Obama is pursuing a neocon-charted path on Iran that parallels the one that George W. Bush took to war with Iraq - ratcheting up sanctions against the "enemy," refusing to tolerate more peaceful options, and swaggering along with the propagandistic tough-guy-ism of the major U.S. news media.

Israel vs Iran: The Risk of War

By Paul Rogers

At present, it seems that the planning for such a war does not envisage that it would be launched "out of the blue" but rather that it might arise from a provocation, a crisis with Iran - or sheer military miscalculation. This "known unknown" notwithstanding, the details of the proposed operation are worth quoting at length.

Why China agreed to sanctions?

Apparently, the Israelis drew a scenario that forecast a perilous impact on the Gulf oil production and strategic shipping lanes in case of a military strike on Iran. Sanctions were thus the safe way out.

McCain on the evil, barbaric Iranians

Salon
by Glenn Greenwald

06/12/10

As the American war in Afghanistan enters its ninth full year and our occupation of Iraq its seventh, and as we continue to find all new ways to kill innocent civilians in various countries around the world, and as we continue to transfer billions of dollars every year to Israel and the Egyptian dictatorship — all while thinking about how to slash Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and thus erode the weak safety net even further, while confronting collapsing domestic infrastructure, rampant unemployment, and massive teacher lay-offs and even grade elimination for American children — is there any other country you can think of, besides Iran, which ’spends its people’s precious resources not on roads, or schools, or hospitals, or jobs that benefit all [citizens]’ but rather on wars and support for foreign groups which kill ‘the innocent?’ And over the last decade, what was the position of John McCain and his party on whether the ‘people’s precious resources’ should be spent (a) on ‘roads, or schools, or hospitals, or jobs that benefit all’ … or (b) wars that kill the innocent?
