Larry King - The Iran Propaganda continues.
LK tonight has three attack Iran propagandists/scare the American people as guests telling viewers every ten seconds how Al-Qaeda has regrouped and therefore we need to attack Iran.

Larry King is in over his head on this and fails to grasp the fact that:

1/ If AQ and terrorists have expanded and retrenched it is the Bush administration's fault along with our flawed foreign policy
2/ AQ heralds from Saudi Arabia not Iran

1. The Iran + Al Qaeda = BFFs line is especially infuriating,
given that we were sold the war in Iraq in large part on a story of Saddam + Al Qaeda = BFFs. Apparently today's axoim is, Those Who Forget The Past Are Doing So In The Name Of "Moving Forward". :puke:

2. I just turned
it on, after seeing this thread. I am curious what Michael Scheuer is saying about Iran? Thanks.

6. Unlike the current MSM hype Scheuer appears rational
To paraphrase....he said the USA must change its stance so that it is objective in the ME.

8. Right.
The part I saw with him speaking was good. His books (Through Our Enemies' Eyes, and Imperial Hubris) both have the same general message.

4. It's virtually nonstop on CNN now...
...I wonder if someone from BushCo has told CNN's corporate stuffshirts that in the next few years the State will permit two, possibly three major news agencies to broadcast over U.S. airwaves and if they want to be one of them, they'd better start toeing the TERROR TERROR line like never before. I don't know what else would explain their recent shifting into hyper-drive with the fear card.

5. If the Royal Saudi family lived in Iran, we would be considering
bombing Saudi Arabia right now. It's that simple.

7. Larry King is a genuine dumb ass when it comes to foreign policy.
He has always been like that. He's better at interviewing entertainers.

10. This whole Iran thing is just one big propoganda blitz
Get ready for the bombs to fall before the end of November of this year. It's a disgrace.
