“Washington and its allies are using the IAEA [International Atomic Energy Agency] document to threaten all-out war. Weeks before the report was released, the U.S. and Israel were already threatening a military strike as a direct response to the supposedly secret document.
“The United States possesses over 10,000 nuclear weapons; Israel has an estimated 300. Iran has none. The U.S. remains the only country in the world that has used nuclear weapons in a war. Both the U.S. and Israel have a long history of invading and occupying other countries. Iran has no such record. On November 2, Israel test-fired a missile said to be capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and reaching Iranian territory” (International Action Center).
Sara Flounders works on the threats facing the world. Her article on the silence surrounding the exemption of military greenhouse gas emissions under the Kyoto Protocol was the winner of Project Censored top 25 articles for 2009-2010 news stories.
