Fox “News” Dishes up More Pro-War Propaganda

by James Buchanan

All of us are used to Fox “News” kissing Israel’s butt at every opportunity and ranting endlessly about the “imminent threat” posed by the latest neocon-created Bogeyman.

Well, the propaganda has just clicked over from dishonest to crazy with the latest article from Kevin Timmerman entitled “U.S. Intel: Iran Plans Nuclear Strike on U.S.” Curiously no other major news service in the US (other than Fox) considers Mr. Timmerman’s article worth publishing.

Never mind the fact that (1) Iran has zero nuclear weapons, (2) Iran’s best missile can only just reach Israel (which is the real reason for neocon panic), and (3) Any attack by Iran against the US –even if it were possible– would result in about one hundred US nuclear bombs obliterating Iran, and the Iranians know that.

Despite this huge gap in logic, apparently Timmerman has found someone just as crazy as himself who can make a mountain out of a molehill. The fact that Iran doesn’t have a nuclear bomb (and couldn’t make one for ten years assuming they had a secret program) was of course completely glossed over by Timmerman. Why let that “little” fact stand in the way? Timmerman goes on to quote a Dr. Graham who weaves a web of speculation claiming that Iran will launch their missiles from ships parked off the coast of the US. (Never mind the fact that our military satellites can track ships all over the world, especially suspicious ships from the Mid East.)

Timmerman’s article rants “Iran has carried out missile tests for what could be a plan for a nuclear strike on the United States, the head of a national security panel has warned. In testimony before the House Armed Services Committee and in remarks to a private conference on missile defense over the weekend hosted by the Claremont Institute, Dr. William Graham warned that the U.S. intelligence community ‘doesn’t have a story’ to explain the recent Iranian tests…. Graham chairs the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack, a blue-ribbon panel established by Congress in 2001.”

How many of these parasitic warmongering neocons like Dr. Graham do we have drawing salaries from the federal government? Hopefully Graham will be booted out of his office soon and will be forced to get a real job flipping hamburgers which would much better suit his intellectual abilities.

Israel is getting desperate for the Bush regime to launch a war against Iran that will turn its nuclear power plant into a radioactive cloud which will drift eastward over millions of innocent people including some of our real allies.

So neocons like Mr. Timmerman are coming out of the woodwork and doing their worst trying to gin up support for another illegal war of aggression by the US. There’s an old saying that George Bush once fouled up that goes “Fool me once; shame on you. Fool me twice; shame on me.” Most Americans can see through these neocons and their lies. Mr. Timmerman should hang up his keyboard and retire in Tel Aviv. The Israelis owe him a pension for all the fifth column work he’s done on their behalf.
