Iran Scaremongering In Full Swing




|| By FITSNEWS || Since the American people have fallen hook, line and sinker for the U.S. scaremongering related to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), it’s time now to turn our attention to Iran.

Depending on the day, Iran is either another militant regime America must invade … or an ally in the fight against ISIS.

Wait … how can that be?  Ask conflicted U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham – who is the star of a new commercial funded by the American Security Initiative, a 501(c)(4) that’s led by liberal former U.S. Senators Evan BayhSaxby Chambliss and Norm Coleman.

According to this group, an Iranian nuclear attack on the United States is imminent.  Sound familiar?  It should – precisely such an attack has been previously predicted by Graham.  Who as recently as last year was urging the administration of Barack Obama to coordinate the latest “War on Terror” with Iran.

Which is it?  Who knows …

But thanks to these scaremongers, we now get to watch a hypothetical attack unfold from the point of view of a fictitious terrorist …

The point of all this?

“Tell Washington: No Iran nuclear deal without Congressional approval,” the ad’s narrator states.

Jeez …

This is nothing but senseless, sensationalist scaremongering … and these ex-Senators (along with Graham) should be ashamed of themselves.

The irony?  Interventionist propaganda like this is a self-fulfilling prophecy.  Make no mistake: If America continues provocatively engaging in Middle Eastern fights where we have no business (and which we cannot afford), then those fights most assuredly will come home to us.

Which leads us to believe politicians like Graham – and groups like the “American Security Initiative” – have no intention of making America safer, but rather provoking precisely the sort of attack depicted in their propaganda.
