New York Times Editors Endorse Murdering Millions of Iranians

New York Times Editors Endorse Murdering Millions of Iranians

by Stephen Lendman

Times editors are neocons masquerading as journalists. They have no credibility whatever. 

They're key parts of America's Big Lying Machine. They suppress hard truths. They blast out daily managed news disinformation rubbish.

They support all war of aggression America wages or plans. They're in lockstep with imperial mass slaughter and destruction. 

They serve wealth, power and privilege exclusively. They're unapologetic about where they stand.

On March 26, they featured former Bush official/unindicted war criminal/neocon hardliner John Bolton.

He took full advantage. He urged Washington bomb Iran's nonexistent nuclear weapons facilities.

He knows doing so puts millions of lives at risk. So do Times editors. 

They published his war advocacy anyway. Doing so supports it.

Attacking Iran could set the whole region ablaze. What's a few million lives to eliminate Israel's main regional rival.

Lunatics like Bolton and Times editors consider them a small price to pay

Maybe they think turning the entire region to rubble is OK as long as oil in the ground remains for America to control - to plunder for profit.

Bolton is a very dangerous lunatic - one of many infesting Washington.

Imagine a Republican winning the White House in November 2016 appointing him Secretary of State or Defense.

Imagine global war exploding straightaway. Bolton ludicrously claims negotiating with Iran on its nuclear program to resolve differences diplomatically "brought a bad situation to the brink of catastrophe."

He claims US intelligence calling Iran's program peaceful is "little more than wishful thinking."

Despite no evidence whatever suggesting it has a military component, Bolton claims he knows better.

"Iran's steady progress toward nuclear weapons has long been evident," he blustered - despite indisputable evidence proving him wrong.

Lunatic neocons like Bolton crave war. They like killing people. They relish mass slaughter and destruction.

They enjoy turning one country after another to rubble - to murdering millions of men, women, children, the elderly and infirm, slaughtering them in cold blood.

They want violence and instability replacing peace and calm. They want governance of, by and for America's rich and powerful alone.

They want control of world resources. They want them plundered for profit.

They want ordinary people exploited as serfs. They want greater human misery worldwide than already exists.

They want all independent governments eliminated. They want unchallenged US dominance. They want it achieved through the barrel of a gun.

Bolton spit out one Big Lie about Iran after another. "The inescapable conclusion is that Iran will not negotiate away its nuclear program," he blustered. 

"Nor will sanctions block its building a broad and deep weapons infrastructure." 

"The inconvenient truth is that only military action" can work.

"Time is terribly short, but a strike can still succeed," he ranted.

Responsible editors wouldn't touch Bolton's rubbish. Times editors featured it.

As long as lunatics like him infest Washington, expect world peace to hang by a thread.
