Some clarity from Chomsky
I don't know how I missed this before, but Noam Chomsky gave an interview to ZNet a couple of weeks ago that laid bare much of the hypocrisy in the West regarding the situation in the Middle East. Here's a small taste:
[T]o the outside world, it sounds a bit odd, to put it mildly, for the US and Israel to be warning of the "Iranian threat" when they and they alone are issuing threats to launch an attack, threats that are immediate and credible, and in serious violation of international law, and are preparing very openly for such an attack. Whatever one thinks of Iran, no such charge can be made in their case. It is also apparent to the world, if not to the US and Israel, that Iran has not invaded any other countries, something that the US and Israel do regularly.Of course, I recommend reading the entire interview.
