Evil Neocons! Oil Profits! The Evil Office’O'Special Plans! Claiming Negative Proof As A Logic Error!
Cheney, Rice, Bolton and others who constantly remind us about Iran’s nuclear weapons program offer us nothing by way of tangible evidence that such a program actually exists, and consistently bat away any and all requests that they provide such proof.
Yup, no proof at all. Except for what the Iranians actually tell us, alternated with insistence that it’s all for peaceful use, and except for that new heavy water reactor, and except for that missile work, and except for those yellowcake buys, and except for the centrifuges, and except for that IAEA inspector they threw out, and the seals they broke, and, you know, other stuff.
No, wait! There’s more! It’s like living in early 2003 over there during the World’s Longest Rush To War or something.
I would like some serious discussion that advocates something achieveable that shows how keeping from making war directly on Iranian soil is a great idea. Being as this timing is likely to put me in the sandbox about then, I’m all for staying quiescent if it’s achieveable. I’d love to see some discussion on how to optimize the path away from nuclear strikes, unattributed, on US soil, that being something we’re trying to do. The post I referenced above, however, ain’t that discussion.
Update: Links got gafunga’d. They’re fixed.
