Featured Idiot: Paul Craig Roberts

By Dave

This week we’ve got a new featured idiot. Paul Craig Roberts is back on the top of the list for his heroic defense of Iran and repeated claims that the Bush administration was horribly slandering the innocent Iranians who had no intention of developing nuclear weapons. All of which has now been proven to be as foolish and naive as his equally ridiculous beliefs about the 9/11 attacks. The latest reports from the IAEA and IISS show that Iran will have working nuclear weapons in a matter of months and that they never shut down any of their nuclear weapons development programs. Just being so totally wrong would get Roberts the nod as featured idiot, but add in the fact that his idiocy is motivated by his rabid antisemitism and he gets to be top idiot with a gold star.

    I am not sure where you are getting your information, but the IAEA report (which will be released in a couple of weeks) will NOT say that Iran will have working nuclear weapons in a matter of months. In fact, it says that it will be 2-5 years. Not only that, but the head of the IAEA says that there is sufficient time to address the concern.

    Here’s an article from Reuters:

    VIENNA (Reuters) – Iran could gain the capability to make a nuclear weapon in 2-5 years but there is ample time to deal with the concern, the head of the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog said in a televised interview.

    Mohamed ElBaradei, director-general of the Vienna-based U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said that after stockpiling enriched uranium, Iran would face further technical and political hurdles should it seek to build nuclear arms.

    “There is a concern, but don’t hype the concern,” ElBaradei, alluding mainly to U.S. and Israeli warnings, said in a CNN interview broadcast late Sunday. “There is ample time to engage (Iran) and reverse the concern and to move into more engagement rather than more isolation.”

    dave looks like youre failing to get much traction here or on this site in general .
    i wonder why ?
    could it be that you are barking up the wrong tree ?

    Ha! Dave got pawned! Eventually some government reports will ‘prove’ Iran has nukes, just as they once ‘proved’ Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Of course this was only the case for about a six month to one year period of time, but that was all that was necessary to launch an imperial genocidal war. :(

    And you worked for the Republican Liberty Caucus supposedly? Shouldn’t they be against these foreign adventures? I really doubt this failing website is of your independent conception.

    T, where did I advocate foreign adventures in this article. You seem to be hallucinating. Listening to Alex Jones will do that to you.

    And how is this a “failing” website? It’s steadily growing and doing quite nicely.

    A great leading rock can win a battle by inspiring the crowd to participate and really feel the songs. However when you do encounter a jerk then just stand your ground. These days breakdacning is referred to as a form of road dancing.
