Catastrophic Déjà Vu

Debunking The Iran War Resolution

By August Wagele

289/06/08 "ICH" -- - The White House is currently conducting the same tactic on Iran that worked so well on Iraq. Despite the voluminous evidence that The White House lied and exaggerated to excuse the Iraq invasion, much of the American population (by way of the corporate media) are buying into the same rhetoric they foolishly failed to question only five years ago.

These grave threats against Iran are the culmination of 29 years of resentment. Started in 1979 when a frustrated faction in Iran overthrew the brutal yet obedient American puppet, The Shaw.

The White House is continually asserting that Iran is: a threat to America, a threat to its neighbors, harming Americans in Iraq, supporting terrorism, and illegally pursuing nuclear weapons.
