In a speech before military commanders and troops, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei dismissed ongoing comments from US officials who insist an attack on Iran is an option as “silly,” saying there was no serious threat of a sudden US strike.
Khamenei went on to deride the nuclear talks as aimed at resolving a US-created myth of a nuclear weapons program in Iran, created simply to justify their own policy of threatening Iran.
US intelligence assessments have centered on the belief that Iran had a fledgling nuclear weapons program at some point in the past, but has not had one in several years.
This is in stark contrast to the narrative from US political leaders, who present Iran as having an active program to some extent, and even more distinct from the claims of US hawks, who have been insisting for decades that Iran is on the cusp of finishing a weapon.
This has caused problems as many US officials, particularly hawks, are insisting they want Iran to confess to a program which Iranian officials insist never existed, and which even the US intelligence community doesn’t believe has existed for a long time.

There is not going be any military attacks on Iran for two reasons, Iran will retaliate and destroy Saudi Arabia and Israel for one, two the world cannot effort nor is ready for a total destruction of Middle East because, although they say stupid thing and act stupidest but they are not crazy, not yet at least.
Oh but everyone knows Iran will "cheat" on whatever agreement is reached and continue to build a nuclear weapon they're not building nor want to build.
All of this innuendo has a base in reality, the reality of What ISRAEL would do and in fact did, Hiding their Nuclear weapons building from the United States and the World, even the so called sales to rogue states has serious and significant truths attached, Israel sold Nuclear weapons to South Africa's old apartheid regime! Of course if one was to investigate the sales and acquisition of nuclear material Netanyahu's name would feature again and again in the dirty backroom deals and other nefarious activities
A big difference is that Israel has never been a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and was thus not open to international inspections. Iran is a signatory to the NPT and its nuclear facilities are frequently inspected.
Well, Prime Minister Netanyahoo says Iran is only a couple of weeks from a bomb so…it must be true!
And Netanyahu never lies. He has stuck to this truth since 1990s that Iran is a few weeks away from a nuclear bomb..
It was Simon Peres (isn't the president of Israel called so?) who many years ago sold a nuclear warhead to South Africa. 16 US Intelligence Agencies still say that Iran is NOT working on a nuclear weapon and if they ever worked on a Bomb, that work stopped completely in 2003. Note: IF they ever worked on a Bomb, they stopped completely working on it in 2003. According to 16 US Intelligence Agencies ! I refer to Ray McGovern, Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity.
It's another WMD lie to justify wreaking havoc on another of Israel's enemies.
"IF they ever worked on a Bomb, they stopped completely working on it in 2003."
wrong phrasing, friend. the agencies never said iran "worked on a bomb." at most, they say iran
did some basic nukular research which "may" have been possibly maybe weapons related.
research is of course permitted under the npt. assembly of a bomb is not.
the only "proof" in iran's perfidy is the "smoking laptop" which noone, especially not iran, is
permitted to examine.
same phrasing problem in all the papers concerning iran's intentions. we always hear that
iran "hasn't made the decision to build a bomb" as if they were actually discussing it in parliament.
what we never hear is that iran HAS made the decision NOT to build a bomb.
"…we never hear is that iran HAS made the decision NOT to build a bomb."
Well, duh…that would royally screw the pooch for the neocon warmongers, Armageddonists and Israel-Firsters – not to mention the bought-and-paid-for corporate media.
