In Service to Netanyahu, Trump Administration Figures Freak Out Over Iranian Missile Test

by Scott Creighton

The lies are coming fast and furious. This guy says the medium range ballistic missile (MRBM) Iran tested is “capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and traveling 4,000 km”. But then again he also says “the ayatollah regime” continues to fan the “flames and calling outright for the destruction of the Jewish state.” … so that should give you an idea of the truthfulness of his “fake news” website.

The Khorramshahr MRBM is one of three new missiles Iran has developed. Like most of these types of weapons, it probably has a range of 2,500 km max. A MRBM can ONLY have a range of 3,500 km before it becomes something else (intercontinental ballistic missile perhaps?) So, it can’t have a range of 4,000 km.

It’s also not designed to carry nuclear warheads and even the White House and Defense Department acknowledge that fact. But Hasbara will be Hasbara so you can’t really expect anything else from these guys, can you?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu immediately went into hyperventilation mode after the test, screeching to the world that action must be taken to stop Iran from developing defensive weapons… weapons designed to defend their country from out of control people like… crazy, ranting racist Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Bombing Planned by Jewish “Australi Witness” Terrorist Would Have Coincided with Israel-backed #NoIranDealBecause Twitter Campaign

by Scott Creighton

goldberg 1

Jewish extremist Joshua Ryne Goldberg thought he was communicating with a disturbed Muslim person when he gave him specific instructions on how to build a working pressure cooker bomb and then gave him even more detailed directions to where he wanted him to set it off and when.

Perhaps it isn’t a coincidence that the Israel-backed sponsored social media campaign on Twitter, , started today, the same day Joshua hoped a bomb would go off at a 9/11 memorial ceremony. That action, if it had taken place, would have fomented extreme hatred toward Muslims across the world and therefore would have aided the Likudnik AIPAC-types in their efforts to kill the very popular nuclear deal with Iran.

As it just so happens, the social media campaign is littered with claims that Iran somehow aided with the terrorist attack of 9/11 and repeatedly the influence peddlers using the service, refer to Iranians as “terrorists”

they are terrorists

Joshua Ryne Goldberg instructed a man who he thought was a Muslim extremist on how to pack the bomb with shrapnel after first dipping each piece of it in rat poison.

Arrested on Sept 9th, Goldberg finally admitted to being “Australi Witness” and giving someone specific instructions on how to make a lethal weapon and then telling him in detail, where to set it off and when.

Noam Chomsky on the Iranian Deal (video) and My Comments

by Scott Creighton

In this first video, it seems hard for Noam Chomsky to get his point across to al Jazeera’s Antonio Mora. That’s because it’s next to impossible for someone to learn something if their paycheck depends on them not learning it as is the case with Mr. Mora. And no, al Jazeera isn’t the truth-telling outlet they once were when they were the only news agency reporting on the Egyptian revolution back in 2011.

And here’s my take on this:

Iran Calls for Nuclear Disarmament by US, Israel, World

by Juan Cole, Common Dreams

At a summit on Monday, Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif turned the tables on the countries demanding that Iran keep its nuclear program for solely civilian, electricity generation. Zarif called for all countries to give up nuclear weapons, including Israel and the US. Iran does not have a nuclear bomb and gives no signs of trying to develop one.

The speech is a welcome reminder of how topsy-turvy Washington discourse on Iran is. Iran is viewed suspiciously as going for broke to get an atomic bomb, when there is no evidence for an Iranian nuclear weapons program. That the US has a massive nuclear arsenal is not mentioned. That the only nuclear-armed country in the Middle East is Israel is not mentioned. That George W. Bush was alarmed that an Israeli PM brandished the threat of a nuclear strike against Iraq is not mentioned. That Israel is not inspected by the International Atomic Energy Agency but Iran is, is not mentioned. That Western countries have actively connived to give Israel a nuclear weapons capability and to improve it is not mentioned. So US politicians constantly warn that if Iran gets a bomb it will kick of a nuclear arms race in the region, ignoring the fact that Israel has a bomb, which has already driven such a race (it was why Iraq in the 1980s sought bomb-making capabilities).

Zarif spoke on behalf of the Group of the Non-Aligned States Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons at the 2015 NPT Review Conference in New York, saying that the NPT is the essential framework for the whole world and that a complete disarmament should be the end game

“W” Emerges from the 9th Circle to Appease the War-Mongering Republican Jewish Coalition

by Scott Creighton

frozen in a lake of ice up to his chin, the traitor spends eternity in solitude and torment pondering his treachery forever

Former President George W. Bush was the main event speaker this past Saturday night at Sheldon Adelson’s Venetian hotel and casino where the traitor and former “Liar in Chief” came out of hiding, dragged himself from a lake of ice, in order to address 700 members of the Republican Jewish Coalition. Adelson, the billionaire with a $100 million set and ready to purchase the next Republican nominee for the White House, was in attendance.

“W”, as he is called, made sure to appease his war-mongering audience:

Mr. Bush voiced skepticism about the Obama administration’s pursuit of a nuclear deal with Iran. Although he had begun the diplomatic effort to press Iran to give up its nuclear program, Mr. Bush questioned whether it was wise to lift sanctions against Tehran when the Islamic government seemed to be caving in, and suggested that the United States risked losing leverage if it did so. New York Times

Sure I could repeat, once again, the simple fact that Iran does not have, nor have they every had a nuclear weapons program under the current political organization of the country.

Lavrov: Chances to reach Iran nuclear deal ‘pretty good’

from RT

The ongoing negotiations between Iran and six major world powers over Tehran’s controversial nuclear program have a high chance of producing a deal, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said. But the parties must not try to up the ante.

Lavrov interrupted his participation in the talks in in Switzerland’s Lausanne on Monday for a meeting with a delegation from Vanuatu, a small Pacific nation recently devastated by a cyclone.

Later on Tuesday he is to return to the negotiations, which are in a make-or-break last day phase.

The chances of a breakthrough in the talks are high, but success is not guaranteed, Lavrov stressed during a joint media conference with his Vanuatu counterpart Sato Kilman.

“We have an opportunity to realize our chances if no party to the negotiations tries to raise the stakes at the last moment to get something extra instead of keeping a balance of interests,” he said.
