America Confirms Status as Land of the Moron

According to a recent poll 84% of Americans believe that Iran is attempting to develop nuclear weapons -- now, I wonder how those ill-informed idiots arrived at that conclusion? Perhaps via the same means the same idiots were led to believe that an invasion of Iraq was necessary because Saddam had WMDs, mobile chemical weapons labs and uranium centrifuges for making nuclear weapons -- none of it was true but then TRUTH is a stranger to America.

UN weapons inspectors at the time, stated PLAINLY to the WORLD that Saddam had NO WEAPONS of mass destruction but the US Corporate Media would have none of it, they had other elite Commercial interests to serve so they continued the poisonous propaganda campaign until most interviewed invading soldiers believed that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and had WMDs with which he was about to attack America!

So it appears nothing has changed in good ol' banjo playing moron America; the fearful, fast food stuffed, diabetic brainless population is still too lazy to simply research and verify matters for themselves.

If nothing else, moron America demonstrates the power of a unified media front under the control of the CFR, a front organisation more nefarious than Goebbels' Nazi propaganda ministry.

So another successful propaganda coup has occurred in the US allowing for another needless war! However, the rest of the WORLD is NOT buying and unless America wishes to further alienate itself from the rest of the world it should do some research regarding global public awareness and its status as the WORLD'S leading TERRORIST NATION.

The situation in the US is nothing less than tragic when we consider the abundant information that is now readily available in the public domain; information that clearly incriminates the entire Bush regime for LYING the nation into illegal wars for the benefit of the elite few but at great cost to the many. But who really gives a shit about MORONS, especially American morons. The US ruling elite considers the entire slave population expendable.

FIVE million (and counting) innocent civilians killed by the USA since Vietnam; but I bet the Corporate Mass Media hasn't mentioned that all those murders come with a price tag! Yesirree, Bob, they're coming after us alright, gimme my squirrel gun, Jethro, I can see them Iranians coming over the horizon carrying nukes on their backs!


Report follows:

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that the American public is largely in support of Obama’s diplomacy-first strategy towards Tehran and, by a sizable margin, opposes military action against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

The poll finds that while 84 percent of Americans believe Iran is trying to develop a nuclear weapon — a conclusion that neither U.S. intelligence nor the IAEA have yet made — 53 percent of poll respondents oppose bombing Iran’s nuclear facilities “to try to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.” Only 41 percent of respondents supported taking military action. When asked about Israel bombing Iran’s nuclear sites, respondents offered nearly identical responses with 51 percent opposing Israeli military action and 42 percent supporting.

Indeed the widespread opposition to military action appeared to be bolstered by a belief — held by 76 percent of respondents — that if Israel attacked Iran, it would “risk starting a larger war in the Middle East.” That opinion was shared by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last week when she observed that a unilateral Israeli attack on Iran at this time “is not in anyone’s interest.”

Former Israeli Mossad Chief Meir Dagan gave voice to similar views last month when he warned that bombing Iran would “ignite, at least from my point of view, a regional war” and that no military attack would be able to be able to permanently halt the Iranian nuclear project. The view that military action could only delay Iran’s nuclear program, and not stop it, is also shared by Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and U.S. based military analysts.

While the Post’s poll shows general opposition to military action by the U.S. or Israel, the U.S. public support the sanctions regime and diplomacy pursued by the White House. Eighty-one-percent of respondents support “direct diplomacy talks between the United States and Iran to try to resolve the situation” and 64 percent think it’s a “better idea” to “see if economic sanctions against Iran work, even if that allows more time for is nuclear program to progress.”

Top U.S. officials and the IAEA agree that Iran is continuing to develop its nuclear capabilities and warn that some of their activities may have a military dimension. But the IAEA, U.S. and Israeli intelligence agree that Iran has yet made the decision to develop a nuclear weapon.

The Washington Post poll shows that Americans, by a large margin, are not yet ready to write-off diplomacy and non-military pressure to bring Iran to the negotiating table. Last week, Panetta told the CBC that sanctions are proving effective at pressuring the Iranian government. “There is evidence that these sanctions are hurting, that it’s impacting on their economy, it’s impacting on their ability to govern themselves,” he said.

The new Post/ABC News poll results also match up with other recent polls on this issue. A poll released last month by the Program on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA) and the University of Maryland showed Americans exhibiting strong support for the U.S. and its partners “continuing to pursue negotiations with Iran” while an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released on March 5 found that Americans prefer diplomacy over military action to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
