Antiwar Radio: Nima Shirazi

Nima Shirazi, creator of WideAsleepinAmerica.com, discusses the summer surge of “blame Iran” talking points – the marketing strategy to sell Obama’s seventh war to Americans; how Iran’s nonchalant response to threats of an Israeli solo attack ruffles feathers in Washington and Tel Aviv; and how the US justifies an extended Iraq stay by pointing to increased Iranian influence (without acknowledging that the US destroyed Saddam’s Sunni government and helped install the current pro-Iran Shia regime).

Antiwar Radio: Nima Shirazi

Nima Shirazi, creator of WideAsleepinAmerica.com, discusses his catalog of the numerous failed predictions – primarily by the US and Israel – of Iran’s imminent creation of a nuclear weapon; how the latest Israeli estimate of a 2015 Iran nuke is explained, not by a longtime mistaken assumption about Iran’s nuclear intentions, but by the effectiveness of sanctions, espionage and assassination; the vastly overstated Iranian “breakout” capability that could also be ascribed to well over 100 other countries; Israel’s genuine concerns of an emboldened Hezbollah and a “brain drain” of educated Israelis migrating to the US and Europe; and how Iran’s leaders are portrayed by Western media as irrational “mad mullahs” that want to destroy the world and can’t be reasoned with.
