War Propaganda Exposed: Mass Media Warmongering Against Iran
Uploaded by RepresentativePress on Jan 7, 2012
Aided and Abetted by Mass Media, Bachmann's Lies Still Dominate Public Discourse even with her dropping out of the GOP race. Those peddling War Propaganda are given a free ride, notice that mainstream media hasn't informed most people that Bachmann and others are lying about Iran and they are ignoring and breaking international law. Stephen M. Walt debunked her premise in his critique of Matthew Kroenig's "textbook example of war-mongering disguised as "analysis:" "If this bizarre fantasy were true, why couldn't the former Soviet Union do similar things during the Cold War, and why can't other nuclear powers make similar threats today when they don't like a particular American initiative? The simple reason is that threatening nuclear war against the United States is not credible unless one is willing to commit national suicide, and even Kroenig concedes that Tehran is not suicidal. Nuclear weapons are good for deterring attacks on one's own territory (and perhaps the territory of very close allies), but that's about it. They are not good for blackmail, coercive diplomacy, or anything else." - Stephen M. Walt http://representativepress.blogspot.com/2012/01/openly-calling-for-his-countr...
☉ Also note how US media failed to give the Pentagon press secretary's recent statement the coverage it deserved: "We have no indication that the Iranians have made a decision to develop a nuclear weapon."

The well respected author Noam Chomsky has written about Israel's intentional attack on the USS Liberty: "The truth of the matter is that Israel has been granted a unique immunity from criticism in mainstream journalism and scholarship ... the attack on the unmistakably identified U.S. Liberty with rockets, aircraft cannon, napalm, torpedoes and machine guns, clearly premeditated, leaving 34 crewmen dead and 75 wounded in "the Navy's bloodiest 'peacetime' international incident of the 20th century" ... the general reaction of the press and scholarship has been silence or misrepresentation. ... The nature of the attack on the Liberty was also evaded not only by the press fairly generally but by the government and by a U.S. Naval Board of Inquiry, though high-ranking figures had no doubt that the official report was a whitewash; former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Thomas H. Moorer, for example, states that the attack "could not possibly have been a case of mistaken identity," as officially claimed." pp31-32
Here is Ahmadinejad's actual quote translated directly to English: ❝The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time.❞ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mScWWtRfGQ&feature=BFa&list=PLC45E101...
LISTEN: The International Atomic Energy Agency published its latest report on Iran on November 8th, but for nearly two weeks beforehand news media were rife with leak-based stories promising the report would be "game changing." What did it actually say, and what of that is to be believed? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-o9fiEQK-o#t=10m5s
A worsening economic crisis; three disastrous wars that have killed millions of people and cost trillions of dollars stolen from essential programs for OIL, OIL, OIL and the U.S. corporate drive for markets, profit and empire – this is why the U.S. government has FALSELY accused the Iranian government of sponsoring a terrorist plot in the United States. Washington’s campaign against Iran for an alleged assassination plot lacks evidence and fails every test of logic The U.S government is making unbelievable, far-tetched allegations that somehow the Iranian government was involved in a bizarre plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador in Washington. Anyone capable of independent thought has raised questions as to its truth. So why is the U.S. government desperate to use an unbelievable pretext to begin a campaign of sanctions and possible war against Iran?
The accusation comes as militant mass actions spurred by austerity and mass suffering at the hands of corporate greed are literally sweeping the globe. The Occupy Wall Street movement has captured peoples' imagination everywhere. Within the U.S. over 110 ongoing occupations and 1,454 support actions have been reported, while mass uprisings are continuing across the Middle East, Europe, and Latin America.
The wild and fabricated charge against Iran has been rolled out in an all too familiar pattern which was used to hype the wars against Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya: unfounded charges with no evidence, high level leaks, scripted quotes about threats to national security from top officials, calls for stricter sanctions, and military retaliation. All is repeated by a frenzied, coordinated media (big business corporate media tied to the military) campaign. The point is to set the stage in the minds of millions of people who are now rising up in righteous anger against the Wall Street banks and the U.S. Government that their enemy is somewhere else, rather than right here at home.
NO WAR AGAINST IRAN,
NO MORE WARS!!!
While the U.S. accuses Iran of terrorism, in fact the U.S. government and its allies have been carrying out a large scale program of deadly drone attacks against Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, along with terror against Iran including assassinating four Iranian scientists and imprisoning a large number of kidnapped Iranian citizens in the U.S. The financial assets of the Iranian government and its people have been seized and are being held in U.S. banks for their use. Join people around the world in opposing another criminal U.S. war.
