Pentagon Says Iran is protecting itself from attack
The latest statement from the U.S. Department of Defense is a sure blow to many GOP candidates (except Ron Paul). GOP candidates blasted Paul in recent debates for saying that Iran could not hurt Israel. Congresswoman Bachmann viciously attacked Paul for stating that we should not intervene on Israel’s behalf. Paul made the case that Israel can defend herself. Bibi Netanyahu agrees by saying that Israel does not need America’s democracy or troops.
The U.S. Department of Defense says that “Iran’s nuclear program and its willingness to keep open the possibility of developing nuclear weapons is a central part of its deterrent strategy.” The Iranians want to ensure their survival against other smaller nations around them. They do not have the capacity to do Israel any harm.
The reality is this report may change the perspective of some, but doubtlessly it will be thrown aside as another useless piece by the many of the bellicose neo-conservative movement.
