"Israel is not training terrorists to subvert its neighbors. It has not shipped weapons into a place like Iraq to kill thousands of innocent civilians covertly," Gates said. He is right! Israel just sends its OWN army and assassins. Gates: "It has not threatened to destroy any of its neighbors. It is not trying to destabilise the government of Lebanon." He is right again! Israel undertakes a major infrastructure development project every few years in neighboring areas. The last one in Lebanon was exemplary. Smaller projects are completed on a daily basis in the occupied territories. You see, Israel and U.S. do not THREATEN to destroy (WIPE OFF), for example, Lebanon and Iraq; the actually DO it!! I truly feel sorry for the Bush apologists and the Likud crowd. The setback caused by the NIE necessitates finding new excuses for launching a war against Iran at the expense of U.S. blood and treasure. How about this one? An Iranian scientist saw a cone-shaped object in his dream!!
