1992:Israeli parliamentarian Benjamin Netanyahu tells his colleagues that Iran is 3
to 5 years from being able to produce a nuclear weapon – and that the threat had
to be "uprooted by an internationalfront headed by the US."


1992:Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres tells French TV that Iran was set to
have nuclear warheads by 1999. "Iran is the greatest threat and greatest problem in
the Middle East," Peres warned, "because it seeks the nuclear option while holding
a highly dangerous stance of extreme religious militanCY."

1992:Joseph Alpher, a former official of Israel's Mossad spy agency, says "Iran
has to be identified as Enemy No. 1." Iran's nascent nuclear program, he told The

1998: The New York Times said that Israel was less safe as a result of the launch
even though Israel alone in the Middle East possessed both nuclear weapons and
the long-range missiles to drop them anywhere. "The major reaction to this is going
to be from Israel, and we have to worry what action the Israelis will take," the
Times quoted a former intelligence official as saying. An unidentified expert said:
"This test shows Iran is bent on acquiring nuclear weapons, because no one builds
an 800-mile missile to deliver conventional warheads."
1998: The same week, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld reports to
Congress that Iran could build an intercontinental ballistic missile – one that could
hit the US – within five years. The CIA gave a timeframe of 12 years.

2002:CIA warns that the danger from nuclear-tipped missiles, especially from Iran
and North Korea, is higher than during the cold war. Robert Walpole, then a top
CIA officer for strategic and nuclear programs, tells a Senate panel that Iran's
missile capability had grown more quickly than expected in the previous two years
– putting it on par with North Korea. The threat "will continue to grow as the
capabilities of potential adversaries mature," he says.

2006: The drums of war beat faster after the New Yorker’s Seymour Hersh quotes
US sources saying that a strike on Iran is all but inevitable, and that there are plans
to use tactical nuclear weapons against buried Iranian facilities.

2007: President Bush warns that a nuclear-armed Iran could lead to "World War
III." Vice President Dick Cheney had previously warned of "serious consequences"
if Iran did not give up its nuclear program.

2007: A month later, an unclassified NationalIntelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran is
released, which controversially judges with "high confidence" that Iran had given up
its nuclear weapons effort in fall 2003.
The report, meant to codify the received wisdom of America's 16 spy agencies,
turns decades ofWashington assumptions upside down. Iranian President
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad calls the report a "victory for the Iranian nation." An
Iranian newspaper editor in Tehran tells the Monitor, “The conservatives … feel the
chance of war against them is gone."

June 2008: Then-US Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton predicts that
Israel will attack Iran before January 2009, taking advantage of a window before
the next US president came to office

2002: President George W. Bush labels Iran as part of the "axis of evil," along with
Iraq and North Korea.
New York Times, "really gives Israel the jitters."

Not really. I just mostly watch Adam Kokesh and Molynex stuff on YouTube (starting to see Molyneux as a little more culty-ish than before, but he's still mostly good). Loved Mark Dice's "Debunking Alex Jones Week". I used to watch Ryan Faulk on YouTube a lot but he has gotten into a whole argument about race, which is good but I'm not quite as interested in.

Been studying too much for my job that starts in January and watching too much soccer and football but I get by.

Yeah, I've listened to some Rogan podcasts. He had Graham Hancock on a while ago; that was interesting. I love the ones with Doug Stanhope.

I am a moral relativist and Molyneux seems to not like that idea and, thus, sometimes seems a little preachy. It's also why I think he takes the position he does in the free will/determinism debate (That's just a theory but he has banned that discussion from his board, just like religion has been banned from here).
