Sorry, I just had to say that.
Am I the only one that read this article in the Times and spit shit out all over my screen in disgust? Really, there is nothing, absolutely nothing new except a whole raft of ‘coulds’ and ‘ifs’ jumbled together to make it look like Iran was TeH close to having a bomb, so fuck, the Israelis are going to bomb ‘em and we should too!
Sanger writes: “While there is little doubt inside the United States government that Iran’s ultimate goal is to create a weapons capability, there is some skepticism about whether an Iranian government that is distracted by an internal power struggle would take that risky step, as well as the questions about how quickly it could overcome remaining technological hurdles.”
Hey David, why don’t you actually do some journalism and inform your readers what those ‘remaining technological hurdles’ are?
I need a drink.
