The Obama Administration is often threatening to attack Iran for no good reason, and is often concern that those threats aren’t being taken seriously. That’s somehow become a cornerstone of the Syria debate.
What with the administration now threatening to attack Syria on similarly flimsy grounds, Secretary of State John Kerry and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel are insisting that the war would enhance the credibility of US threats against Iran.
“Iran is hoping you look the other way,” Kerry declared, insisting that not attacking Syria would send a “clear signal” to Iran about the seriousness of the threats against them.
White House officials are saying that Iran will remain at the center of their lobbying efforts for the war, adding that anyone concerned about Iran’s civilian nuclear program needs to show their concern by supporting a totally unrelated war on Syria.

It's as though Kerry is getting his talking points from the Israelis. Mother Jones has a copy of a letter to Obama, that if true, would show the direct link to Israel. It was signed by a number of Zionist Zealots, including some of the criminals who helped lie the US into the Iraq War. "Neo-cons Push Obama to go Beyond a Punitive Strike in Syria".
So the real target is Iran and not Syria? And Israel is egging US on but doesn't want anyone to know that?
If there was a democracy of any kind governing what is called western democracy or civilizations, then there wouldn't be any austerity nor homeless in any of these countries. Is all about wars and these regimes interests where people have lost or about to lose it all.
Sick dangerous fools.
Lurch Botox Kerry sounds as sane and as credible as John McCain.
Pity the poor people who must scurry for cover under America's indiscriminate meddling rain of fire. Desperate and hard up for unnecessary military confrontation. Was this why Hagel and Kerry, two Vietnam vets, were appointed to their positions?
I don't want Iranians to get a nuclear weapon but there is no evidence that they are pursuing one. The US has not forced Israel, India, Pakistan, nor North Korea to obey the NPT yet it seeks war with Iran to appease foreign states in their power struggle. Iran at least is willing to try and comply with the IAEA. I hate to break it to Chuck Hagel but the credibility of US words has run out a long time ago. The US has failed to stop settlement building in Israel. It made a big stink about state sponsors of terrorism but Israel and Saudi Arabia are free to support Al Qaeda like groups. The US is free to support the MEK. The US has lost credibility when it bucks the law domestically and internationally, and when it does stupid things to appease foreign countries. It attacks groups in some places and then comes out in support for them in others. American policy is so bad that it gives Putin credibility. Hagel out of all of them should know the cost of war and be a bit less like John McCain the psychopath (I read someone diagnosed him as such when he was interviewed by them). If Obama had put someone that was actually capable of diplomacy in the State Department the US could gain credibility by getting these countries off each others throats.
