I don’t know how the allegations of Iran developing a nuclear weapon is being covered in the United States, but on CNN International, it seems to be big news. The source of these very serious allegations is coming from National Council for Resistance in Iran, which the news reports having been reliable in the past with exposing Iran’s nuclear development programs. They added that there is no hiding the fact that they intend to hurt the present government, which means that they may not be all that reliable.

What concerns me the most is that U.S. Secretary of State Colin L. Powell said Wednesday that the U.S. has intelligence that Iran is working to adapt missiles to deliver a nuclear weapon, further evidence that the Islamic republic is determined to acquire a nuclear bomb. Didn’t the U.S. have intelligence that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction? We know where that got them and how reliable that intelligence was.

Though the report does not straight out accuse Iran, it plants a seed of doubt in the minds of the viewer. This seems to fall in line with what we saw months before America attacked Iraq (both times). I get the feeling that America is back to manipulating the general public to gain popular support so they could carry out their invasion of Iran with little protest and most will feel that it is justified.

There was also coverage of some statement made by Russia about a mobile nuclear weapon that CNN has presented as only being a threat to the United States, because anti-ballistic defense systems the US has, can’t prevent the missiles from hitting their target. I wonder what this is about.

I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but when America’s economy is in a frail condition, America goes to war. Could Afghanistan and Iraq have not been enough for this last round of an economic boost? I know that Iran has been on the US wish list of countries to re-invade and control since the US backed Shah was dethroned.

I can say one thing and that is that the U.S. will do everything it has to in order to gain control of Iran and if this war does break out, Armenia is going to suffer big time. I also think that Russia and China will side with Iran, which means that this will be a much bigger war than Iraq and the losses on all sides will be very heavy.
