Fantasyland for Poker Diplomacy: Iran
PEJ News - Pablo Ouziel, Justice Editor -
 After reviewing the mainstream media reports on the political response to the National Intelligence Estimate, it seems clear to me that the leaders of the 'Axis of Good' are bent on betting all their stakes on Iran. Although the summary of the findings of the 16 U.S. intelligence agencies reveals that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in the fall of 2003 and has shown no signs of restarting it, President Bush is calling it a "warning signal" instead of extending a formal apology.
In the year 2000, Professor Noam Chomsky spoke of the reasons for hostility towards Iran; "Until 1979 the U.S. system for controlling the Middle East was based on Iran, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan... Actually the hostility to Iran is because it pulled out of the system and when it is willing to pull back into the system it will become a non-terrorist State again."
In 2006, Seymour M. Hersh in an article revealing plans by the White House to attack Iran, quoted a high-ranking diplomat in Vienna who told him; "the real issue is who is going to control the Middle East and its oil in the next ten years.
