Former UN weapons inspector says attack on Iran 'virtual guarantee'


rawstory.com

Former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter, who was among the original experts to question Bush Administration claims that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, now says he believes an attack on Iran is a "virtual guarantee."

"We take a look at the military buildup, we take a look at the rhetoric, we take a look at the diplomatic posturing, and I would say that it’s a virtual guarantee that there will be a limited aerial strike against Iran in the not-so-near future—or not-so-distant future, that focuses on the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Command," Ritter said last week in a little-noted interview with Amy Goodman's Democracy Now. "And if this situation spins further out of control, you would see these aerial strikes expanding to include Iran’s nuclear infrastructure and some significant command and control targets."

Whilst the denials from the pentagon are still ringing in 0our ears, another high profile person comes out and tells it like it is.

The increased rhetoric etc that he mentions have been noticed and commented on for a long time here on ATS.

All that means (if they DO bomb Iran) is that we'll have been right - and I take no pleasure in that.

Yet again, thousands will suffer, on both sides, as bush&co feed their appettite for war.

All that this will do is increase "islamic terrorism" as more and more join the fight against a foreign agressor, seemingly intent on controlling the whole of the mideast.

Where once america was a symbol of the fight against oppression and imperialism, it has now reversed roles and is set to become the 1st american empire - or at least that's how people will see it if the current administrations policies are continued...

And they were wrong about syria?

US intelligence officials told RAW STORY they “found no radiation signatures after the bombing, so there was no uranium or plutonium present.”

“We don't have any independent intelligence that it was a nuclear facility -- only the assertions by the Israelis and some ambiguous satellite photography from them that shows a building, which the Syrians admitted was a military facility.”

The site of the alleged reactor was bombed in 2007. The UN is currently probing US claims.

"I don’t know what was going on at this site," Ritter said. "If the images are accurate, it appears that Syria was producing a very, very small research reactor. But it is not a reactor usable in a nuclear weapons program. Syria was not violating the law."
