Iran not a nuclear threat!?

Some people, see below, think all the talk of Iranian nuclear weapons is just western propaganda.

I don't know enough. I am pretty sure of one thing, if the Iranians came anywhere close to having a nuclear bomb the Israelis would destroy it just as they did with Saddam's nuclear site.

Maybe you forgot about that.
Saddam abandoned his nuclear ambitions after the Israelis bombed his sites.

The rest of the wmd story was just western propaganda to justify the second gulf war.

"More Lies about Iran

By Mike Whitney

01/15/06 'ICH' -- -- There’s been a lot of rubbish written about Iran’s “removing the seals” from its uranium enrichment equipment.

The fear-mongering western media have exploited the expression for all its worth. Even those who are normally skeptical of the Bush-propaganda machine are taken aback by this ominous-sounding phrase.

What gibberish!

How else does one make nuclear fuel for electric power plants if the fuel-producing mechanism is under lock and key?

The fear-engendering description provided in the news would have the reader believe that “diabolical” Iranians are ripping off the seals with crowbars so they can quickly assemble their secret nuclear stockpile to bomb Tel Aviv.

This is the worse type of demagoguery.

The fuel that is produced from these uranium enrichment reactors DOES NOT PRODUCE WEAPONS-GRADE MATERIAL. That requires thousands of centrifuges which Iran does not have. "
