"Then you contest the opinion of basically the entire intelligence community?”
"Israel should do the same. I don't see any international outcry to have them inspected. And they've threatened to start many conflicts. “
"Furthermore, even if Iran did have nuclear weapons, there is broad consensus that it would not translate to nuclear war. Officials and elite analysts constantly explain Iran’s leaders are rational, unlikely to provoke a conflict, and have no interest in suicide as a result of nuclear retaliation by the US. The threat from Iran is manufactured”
o now you (the article) speaks for the entire intelligence community?
The consensus in the whole of the intelligence community in the US (and Israel) is that Iran has no nuclear weapons program and has yet to demonstrate any intention of starting one anytime soon.
This is false in so many levels. If I relate to just the Israeli side, the debate is not whether or not Iran has a nuclear weapons program, but whether attacking them now or in the near future is the right thing to do, before exhausting all other options.
Israel isn't signatory to NPT and hasn't threatened the complete destruction of other nations.
This is just you ranting.
How nice of people to seat comfortably on their comfy little chairs, a mouse in one hand and a beer in the other, and tell the world that Iran is no threat. Maybe when some ballistic missiles are pointed your way, you'd think differently.

Assuming this is a WAG?
Imperial China is a very scary thought. They will soon have the resources, technological ability and international clout to do much of what the US does now.
Yet another WAG? Can we have some links or news articles supporting this please?
When they start building military bases in European and Middle Eastern/African nations, I don't think people will be so non-chalante about it.
