U.S. Says Iran Ended Atomic Arms Work

Can this new information about Iran's nuclear plan pave the way for the pro-negotiation elements in the administration to purse a more peaceful way in the way they are dealing with Iran dilemma? White House allegation regarding to this news is not very positive, although it shows how "Iran's Nuclear Weapon" plan is a myth more than a reality. Everybody who is closely following Iran's nuclear plan certify that there are lots of technical problems that do let Iranians go after nuclear bomb, even if they have the intention to do so. Still, the US lean on many pretexts to be hostile against Iran. It ranges from Iran's allegedly involvement in Iraq to Iran's support of Hamas and Hizbollah and its efforts to diminish the Middle East peace process, if the re is any process of that kind.

"WASHINGTON, Dec. 3 — A new assessment by American intelligence agencies concludes that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 and that the program remains frozen, contradicting judgment two years ago that Tehran was working relentlessly toward building a nuclear bomb. The conclusions of the new assessment are likely to reshape the final year of the Bush administration, which has made halting Iran’s nuclear program a cornerstone of its foreign policy."

Would the NIE report bolster the anti-war movement? I think it makes little difference. Mainly because the most pro-war elements are in it, not for profit or security, but to bring about the second coming. Here are a couple of quotes to illustrate the point:

"The United States must join Israel in a pre-emptive military strike against Iran to fulfill God's plan for both Israel and the West... a biblically prophesied end-time confrontation with Iran, which will lead to the Rapture, Tribulation, and Second Coming of Christ."
- John Hagee, Armageddonist Televangelist

"Persons of biblical faith are called to 'pray for the peace of Jerusalem' (Ps. 122). The
ideology of Christian Zionism celebrates violence and the defeat of peacemaking efforts.
It blesses neither Israelis nor Palestinians."
- The Institute for the Study of Christian Zionism
