If all goes well, the U.S. military won’t have to invade Iran on behalf of Israel after all. I recall there were times during the Bush administration when I thought we were just days away from another illegal war of aggression – a really big one against a country of 77 million people.
Some important points:
- Economic sanctions have had drastic effects on average Iranians, including 30 percent inflation, increasing poverty, problems with health care, even excessive urban air pollution.
- Iran does not possess any of the highly-enriched uranium (HEU) required for nuclear weapons.
- Iran does not have enough centrifuges to make fuel for their one nuclear power station.
Really, this whole brouhaha isn’t about nuclear weapons at all. It’s about regime change. Or you could also say, it’s about punishing ordinary Iranians because their government doesn’t like Israel.
