    Why it was just four years ago we were told Iran would nuke Israel out of existence last year. Those who were skeptical were called anti-Semites and Iran loving liars. . . Golly. What is wrong with those Iranians that they can't live up to the most paranoid fantasies about their competence? It did not take an immense amount of psychic ability to know Iran would not have the ability to destroy Israel last year, or the year before. Anyone who reads the IAEA reports regularly understands that the Iranians are doing pretty good for a medium sized nation working under sever sanctions. They also understand that the intel services of Israel have fed Israelis a line of bull so deep and wide that it could have brought the level of the dead sea to that of Jerusalem long ago. Piles of stinking, twaddle. Now Meir Dagan tells us that he was full of it for all those years when the purpose of his existence was misleading Israelis instead of providing the nation with good intelligence. Ok, no surprise, he was either totally incompetent or a man willing to lie to his nation and the world to further his career. Will this admission cause the psycho-right to examine the lies which he fed their delusions? Nope, the 'window of vulnerability' where the Soviet Union was to anihilate the USA was always three years off, every year from the early 50s to the moment the Soviet Union collapsed. The psychotic right needs their delusions and lies to justify their insane beliefs and policies. The nuclear destruction of Israel was predicted as just three years away six years ago, four years ago it was just a few years away, and four years later it is only four years away. . . My salutation to Meir Dagan, a man who knew his job was appeasing the paranoid right not supplying Israel with good intelligence. He knew what to kiss and how.
