The Washington D.C. neocon "lobby group" known as the Foreign Policy
Initiative have stepped up their demands for war against Iran.
Writing in an opinion piece published by the Washington Post, the
FPI's Matthew Kroenig and Jamie Fly said that "it's time for Obama to
set clear lines for military action."
The FPI's board consists of four directors, Robert Kagan, Bill
Kristol, Dan Senor and Eric Edelman—all Jewish.
Fly, who is executive director of the Foreign Policy Initiative,
served as director for counterproliferation strategy on the National
Security Council staff of the George W. Bush administration.
Matthew Kroenig served as adviser on Middle East policy in the office
of the secretary of defense from 2010 to 2011.
"Iran has repeatedly crossed what should have been bright red lines
for the international community. But instead of taking tough measures
to stop them, the world simply watched, responding with bluster not
backed up by serious repercussions," the Jewish neocons wrote.
"If the regime crosses another red line in the future, such as
enriching beyond 20 percent, will we stand by once again?
"The Obama administration has articulated only one bright red line:
building nuclear weapons. "The United States can strike Iran's nuclear
facilities to prevent Iran from making weapons-grade uranium, but once
it has the fissile material, the game is over. At that point, our
options would be reduced to either beginning an operation to topple
the regime — which would most likely require ground forces — or simply
praying that Tehran doesn't weaponize. Neither is attractive.
"A more reasonable set of red lines would include advances that would
greatly shrink Iran's dash time to a bomb, such as building additional
covert facilities, installing advanced centrifuges at Natanz or Qom,
maintaining larger stockpiles of low-enriched uranium, enriching
beyond 20 percent, kicking out international inspectors, or conducting
certain weaponization-related research."
The arrogance of these neocons knows no bounds. In this article, they
have called for a "preventive war" against Iran, even though the
United States has no authorization from the U.N. Security Council, it
is not clear that Iran is actively developing nuclear weapons, and
Iran has not attacked America or any of its allies.
This is a call for the U.S. to blatantly violate international law, on
the basis of lies about Iran's mythical nuclear ability.
In any other time, this would be called a War Crime.
