Wild Speculation Against Iran

More supposed evidence has been leaked by White House officials that seemingly bolsters the case against the Iran.  Officials specifically sought out journalists to show them fragments of weapons that they claim to be of Iranian origin.  They could not provide any direct evidence of Iranian involvement, but they made the claim, so it must be true.  White House officials would never, ever lie to the public to boost support for a war in the Middle East, right?

 

 If Iran is so involved in the attacks against American forces, why are we just learning about it in the last few months?  This war has been raging for nearly four years and Iran has been barely mentioned until recently.  The timing is very suspicious.  Could it be that the White House is simply trying to get the American public and the world on their side when they bomb Iran back to the Stone Age?  They are using the exact same script in the build-up to war with Iran that they did before the Iraq invasion.

 

The administration has made a similar argument in Iraq in the past.  First they attempted to link Iraq to 9/11, despite the fact that they were completely unrelated.  Eventually, they admitted the truth; that Iraq had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks.  Then the White House argued that the majority of insurgents were Al-Qaeda members and not Iraqis.  After overwhelming evidence to the contrary, they backed off that lie.

 

Now they are presenting bogus claims that Iran is responsible for all their trouble in Iraq.  Never mind that the majority of attacks on U.S. forces are from Sunnis, while Iran is Shia.  Forget the fact that they cannot present any hard facts of Iranian involvement.  With a naive public, the administration is betting they'll accept rampant speculation as fact.

 

There is much skepticism about the link to Iran, even among the military.  British officers have already stopped making the assertion, stating that the technology used in attacks in Iraq is the same as used in other countries.

 

I hope Congress doesn't buy into this bogus argument perpetrated by the White House.  They fell for it once already, so I'm not holding my breath.
