More Americans incorrectly believe Iran possesses nuclear weapons than know that Israel has them.
The amount of double-standards and special pleading that occur for Israel’s benefit is as laughable as it is dangerous
This is certainly disappointing but not surprising. Our MSM is constantly brainwashing us with the accepted imperial narrative that we are under threat from countries on the other side of the world, usually impoverished, without any military capability to attack us. But this brainwashing is necessary because as a wise man once said. “Our foreign policy is perfectly coherent: It is only that its purposes cannot be articulated to a democratically minded people whose ignorance of our conduct abroad is essential to sustaining it.”
What was it that some former CIA official said about how his mission would be complete when everything that Americans believe is false?
Can you send me some reading that leads you to make the following statements? I'm genuinely do not know how to evaluate claims that Iran is or is not pursuing nuclear weapons. What evidence should a layperson be looking for, other than the judgment of experts (who often have competing views)?
"Many news stories still mislabel Iran’s program as a nuclear weapons program when it is well-established that Iran has not had anything like a nuclear weapons program in almost two decades."
"All of the evidence shows that Iran lacks the necessary materials to build nuclear weapons."
That poll is shocking to me. I was under the impression that most conservatives thought Iran was hell-bent on acquiring nuclear weapons, despite all evidence to the contrary. I guess the CIA has achieved its misinformation goals.
