The assassination in Tehran yesterday of 32 year-old Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan was at least the fourth targeted hit against a member of Iran's atomic energy program in two years. Tehran quickly blamed Israeli-linked agents backed by the U.S. and Britain. Of course, there is little doubt this was the handiwork of Netanyahu and Israel intelligence. This is another in a series of terror attacks against Iranian scientists by Israel.
The march towards war by the Israeli terror machine cheered on by its Amen Corner in the United States continues unabated. The Neo-Cons lied this country into a disastrous war in Iraq and are now doubling down on more war for Iran. The Obama administration has chosen the politically expedient path by placating the domestic ultra-right, as if anything could placate blood-thirsty extremists like Rick Santorum who cheered the murder of the scientist while on the campaign trail.
The only national politician to tell the truth about Iran and our foreign policy in general is Ron Paul. The mainstream media ignores Paul and the conventional wisdom is that Paul could threaten the Republican nominee's chances in November if he were to go third party. Actually I think there's an equal chance he could hurt Obama by capturing much of the anti-war youth vote which was crucial for Obama in 2008. Netanyahu is an assassin and his rogue government will now face the consequences of its actions with a new round of violence. The United States as Ron Paul reminds us will also suffer more blowback from our insatiable appetite for murder, mayhem and mischief. No, they don't hate us because of our freedom, they hate us because we can't stop killing them.
