The Torrent of Lies Continues

bushliar.jpg

It looks like the Liar-in-Chief is up to this old tricks:

Secondly, it's up to Iran to prove to the world that they're a stabilizing force as opposed to a destabilizing force. After all, this is a government that has proclaimed its desire to build a nuclear weapon.

As with Iraq before the invasion, what we are seeing now with Iran is part of a calculated campaign of disinformation and outright lies meant to drum up popular support for going to war with that country. These are the sort of lies that the right-wing blogosphere eagerly gobbles up and begins repeating over and over again as if they were fact. If you repeat a lie often enough it buries itself deep in the subconscious and people begin to believe it's true.

Iran has never admitted that it is developing a nuclear weapons program. They insist that their pursuit of uranium enrichment is solely to provide fuel for nuclear power plants which they desperately need. They maintain that their program is for peaceful purposes only.

Whether that's true or not is something we can't know for certain, but what we do know is that President has once again told a blatant, out-and-out lie in order to fool the American people into believing a threat exists where, in fact, none exists. Iran has never "proclaimed" that it wants to build a nuclear weapon. They don't have inter-continental ballistic missiles or nuclear weapons, and cannot hit the shores of our country with anything. Simply put, they pose no military threat to the US whatsoever. And, given Israel's overwhelming superiority in conventional and nuclear weapons, Iran doesn't pose much of a threat to them either.

These are just bald-faced lies, and its our duty as citizens of this country to call the President out when he lies like this.

Peter F.:

Therefore we should take them at their word, let bygones be bygones and just go about our business like Ward Cleaver. Because, you know, well, golly, what's the big deal with them enriching uranium anyway? Sheesh, it's not like you can make a bomb out of enriched uranium or anything. (Oh wait, scratch that, you can.) And why do those pesky UN Inspectors need to monitor their nuke plants, anyway? I'm mean, wow, they've got nothing to hide here--except, well, everything.

Uh-huh. "Lying".

mantis:

Peter, point to where the Iranian government "has proclaimed its desire to build a nuclear weapon."

Lee Ward:

Iran has a huge air pollution problem as well -- yet another reason why they are clamoring for clean nuclear power.

Re: gasoline -- Iran imports 43 percent of its gasoline supply.

MunDane:

Wow.

THe same group that can't believe that FISA is being used to track down terrorists and not listen to your phone calls to mom believes a Gov't that has a history of lying (like they all do) saying it doesn't want to build a bomb with the enriched Uranium it has.

Please. You all wouldn't take a piss on the President if he was on fire, but fall all over themselves to believe a group of people that WANT TO KILL YOU. This group of Islamists have said that they intend to destroy the US, REPEATEDLY.

And you...you are eh the useful idiots they need.

This isn't about George Bush, or even Republicans. This is about some twisted vision of what the world "ought" to be like. Newsflash: There really are people that want to kill you because you were born in a country that is not an Arab state. They want to kill you, rape your sisters and daughters for walking with their heads uncovered and cleanse the world according to some mad plan.

What a waste of time. You are lost.

It's not a waste of time to listen for the shrill. But schadenfreunde is satiating and tastes sinful.
