the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

is zbig being a tool to get a war on? well maybe it's easier to figure out who *isn't* a tool. yeah they're all tools nevermind.

Ina recent interview with the Daily Beast last week, Zbigniew Brzezinski,the National Security Adviser from the Carter administration and erstwhile adviser to President Barack Obama, made a highly contentious statement regarding the U.S.-Israeli alliance. When asked how the U.S.would respond to Israeli jets using Iraqi airspace in order to stage anattack on Iran, Brzezinski was quoted as saying: “We are not exactlyimpotent little babies. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Arewe just going to sit there and watch? ... We have to be serious aboutdenying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t justsaying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have thechoice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a Liberty in reverse.”

...

Brzezinski who is said to have a reputation for such rhetoric, found his calls for “a Liberty in reverse” dimly viewed by many in Jewish leadership.

For example, Anti-Defamation League national director Abraham H Foxman, responded to Brzezinski’s quip with this: “Here is an international legal expert and he doesn't even know that the US does not control sovereignty over Iraqi airspace. Putting that aside, Zbigniew Brzezinski has always had a nasty streak when it came to Israel…. it is better that we can now see it, and it is out in the open.”
