So, just shy of two weeks ago, Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the US congress in order to drum up support for war against Iran. This is all happening while Obama is trying to make peace with Iran and to come to an agreement on their nuclear program that suits both sides. Netanyahu seems certain that Iran’s true intentions are to build nuclear weapons which could be used against Israel, and doesn’t believe that a peaceful solution can be found. The speech can be watched below.
Oh hang on a second, that isn’t the right speech at all. I just got confused because of how similar it was. That speech was from 2002 and was used to lobby for a war against Iraq. We all know of course that no weapons of mass destruction were ever found in Iraq, despite how “certain” Netanyahu claimed to be. Surely though everyone makes mistakes once in a while. I’m sure he’s right this time and starting a war won’t just be a needless waste of money and innocent lives on both sides this time around, right?
I really hope people can see through him this time. Do we really want another pointless war that throws the world into chaos, for reasons that are of no benefit to anyone involved?
