In an interview with The Real News, Lawrence Wilkinson retired United States Army Colonel and former chief of staff to United States Secretary of State Colin Powell, now lecturer at universities in the Washington area talks about wikileaks, Iran and US foreign policy. I wanted to highlight this part of the interview which I think is very important, but the whole interview is very informative.
At 24:00 min+:
Drawing parallels between decade long campaign for the Iraq war by the neoconservatives and the current drum beats for a repeat on Iran Wilkerson says that "we're probably about 1998 right now with that same group of people vis-Ã-vis Iraq, but now vis-Ã -vis Iran." Asked when a possible war could occur he responds "...if it's '98,'97, we're six, seven years away from the war."
First sanctions to cripple the civil society, destroy the middle-class while strengthening the IRGC, and then the final push for a major military conflict! Before it is too late, the sane civil society of the world needs to push back. It is of utmost importance to continue discrediting the war campaigners wherever they are and whenever they appear! bad nagi nagoftam!
