Netanyahu enters never-never land

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress was eloquent, moving and intelligent in identifying the problems with the potential nuclear deal with Iran. But when describing the alternative to it, Netanyahu entered never-never land, painting a scenario utterly divorced from reality. Congress joined him on his fantasy ride, rapturously applauding as he spun out one unattainable demand after another.

Netanyahu declared that Washington should reject the current deal, demand that Tehran dismantle almost its entire nuclear program and commit never to restart it. In the world according to Bibi, the Chinese, Russians and Europeans will cheer, tighten sanctions, and increase pressure — which would then lead Iran to capitulate. “Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough,” said Peter Pan.

We have some history that can inform us on the more likely course. Between 2003 and 2005, under another practical…

Sanctions cannot stop the Iranian nuclear program, only a deal can

please take a close look to the graphic here and read the text below it:

No nuclear deal is worse for the west and for the regular Iranian people

No nuclear deal is worse for the west and for the regular Iranian people

No deal is worse for the west (no control at all, Iran can ditch the NPT at all and use its full power to go nuclear), and for the Iranian public (the only ones in Iran who are suffering):

(the 100wordz links just cite popular western or Israeli news sites – sources included)

BTW Iranians will not standup against the regime, because of hurting sanctions.
They are too busy having 3 jobs to support their family because of the sanctions.

Even if US and Israeli politicians would like to see it this way:

The sanctions could not stop Iran to go from approx. 3k centrifuges to 19k centrifuges, only a deal can. In the case of the deal they are willing to go back to 6k centrifuges and export enriched uranium out of the country, under IAEA supervision.

You think you know about Iran and Iranians?? Think twice:

Christian Science Monitor + Israeli sources on Netanyahu’s track record of lies and war mongering

Christian Science Monitor + lots of Israeli sources:

Netanyahu is telling the lie about nuclear weapons in Iran since 1992. He said in 92 that Iran is 3-5 years away from having the bomb:
http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Middle-East/2011/1108/Imminent-Iran-nuclear-threat-A-timeline-of-warnings-since-1979/Israel-paints-Iran-as-Enemy-No.-1-1992

2012 He made a big show in front of the UN that Iran will soon have nuclear weapons, already knowing the Mossad reports that were saying that Iran is not even trying to build nuclear weapons:

Also at home he is lying:
http://www.timesofisrael.com/netanyahus-said-to-keep-real-kitchen-off-camera/

Here a report on YNet (right wing Israeli news) about Nuclear Iran:
https://100wordz.wordpress.com/2014/05/09/another-expert-contradicts-netanyahu-israeli-ex-atomic-chief-iran-10-years-away-from-nuclear-weapons-and-doubts-that-iran-is-after-them-at-all/

US intelligence agencies see it the same way:
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/25/world/middleeast/us-agencies-see-no-move-by-iran-to-build-a-bomb.html?_r=0

Here you’ll see a video of a presentation Netanyahu made before a congressional committee in 2002 in which he encouraged a US attack upon Iraq. “A nuclear-armed Saddam will place the security of our entire world at risk,” he says at one point. Almost the same words he used now about Iran. It seems very much as if this man has been advocating war throughout much of his adult life.

A war that cost the US tax payer 2 trillion dollars, thousands of dead marines, and tens of thousands with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder(PTSD) and or handicapped.

Why do people want an escalation with Iran? Do they want get their hands bloody on more Iranian lives?

Source is again YNet (right wing Israeli news):

Iranians have nothing against the people of Israel or Jews at all. Please take a careful look at these posts:

Ukraine: “We in the west are backing neo-Nazis…”

“…since 1945, the US has tried to ­overthrow more than 50 governments, many democratically elected; grossly interfered in elections in 30 countries; bombed the civilian populations of 30 countries; used chemical and biological weapons; and attempted to assassinate foreign leaders.”

“With eastern Europe and the Balkans now military outposts of Nato, the last “buffer state” bordering Russia is being torn apart. We in the west are backing neo-Nazis in a country where Ukrainian Nazis backed Hitler.”

“Like the ruins of Iraq and Afghanistan, Ukraine has been turned into a CIA theme park – run by CIA director John Brennan in Kiev, with “special units” from the CIA and FBI setting up a “security structure” that oversees savage attacks on those who opposed the February coup. ”
