Why This Obsession With Iran?

Why the "obsession?" Pat's the only one I know that would characterize it that way. And that's because of his own obsession -- his fixation on and hatred of Jews. Thus Jews and Israelis (and their supporters, read the overwhelming majority of Americans) are all part of an evil conspiracy. Pat, get over your illness. It has destroyed your moral standing and diminishes your insight and influence.

I don't believe they control the media but they do have a major influence over it, too damn much.

"Iran is not seeking to have the atomic bomb, possession of which is pointless, dangerous and is a great sin from an intellectual and a religious point of view."

Thus did supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declare in February that Iran's possession of atomic weapons would be a mortal sin against Allah.

It is also the unanimous judgment of the U.S. intelligence community, declared in 2007 and affirmed in 2011, that Iran has abandoned any program to build nuclear weapons.

Is the Ayatollah lying? Is the entire U.S. intel community wrong?
