The coming war with Iran

"As the United States gears up for an attack on Iran, one thing is certain: the Bush administration will never mention oil as a reason for going to war". So writes Michael T. Klare, professor of peace and world security studies at Hampshire College. It's almost unspeakable that America will soon be in desperate need of further energy sources. Ignore the almost religious fervour surrounding Iran's supposed imminent threat. We're heard this all before and we know where that ended up. Being conspiratorial has nothing to do with it. Understanding imperial thinking in the 21st century requires decoding of Orwellian language.

Seymour Hersh reported in January of American plans to invade and occupy Iran. When one of the world's greatest reporters says something as incendiary, it pays to listen.

Hersh's reputation since the late 60s speak for itself. He's been defamed and shamed by every government, most media outlets and numerous others and yet his stories remain some of the most spectacular in journalism.
Some people thinks he lies. His record is beyond comparison. Yet again, anybody who actually questions govt spin and lies must be a liar! So whatever....

Um, Anthony, if you read the article, he admits that he lies regularly in service of a greater truth...that's not good journalism to me.
