The New York Times worsens ties between West and Iran

The New York Times has stirred up some controversy when it published as fact that there is proof Iran is developing nuclear weapons. The IAEA report, that was released last year, never stated that Iran’s nuclear program had a military objective. Was this alleged error a deliberate attempt to raise tension between the West and Iran? Robert Naiman, policy director at Just Foreign Policy, joins us to look further into the matter.

How about we just let Israel reap what it has sown? Why should American lives be put on the line to combat the potential consequence of Israeli aggression?

Iran doesn't have nukes, meanwhile Israel has what has been reported to be as high as 400 undeclared nukes, some of which were literally STOLEN from the US decades ago.

So, why are we so worried about Iran? Who has Iran attacked in the past twenty years? Who has Israel attacked, oppressed and ethnically cleansed?

@SubZero1703 Great point buddy, but just to clarify your point, the usa has been at war with someone every day of its over 200 year existence & has been under martial law for nearly 100 which is what gives POTUS the power to make executive orders.

@o0soda0o Iran hasn't preemptively attacked anyone in over 100 years. Mental eh?

@vubear When you look at the shameless, Zionist shills that control almost every aspect of the federal government, it gets way more "mental".

New York times belongs to the Zionists who are working for the Israelis. So it is obvious that they are trying to worsen the politics against Iran.

It's not "bad journalistic behavior" its straight up manipulation of public sentiment to gain support for a war against Iran!!

Straight up manipulation of the media to foster a mentality that gives the warmongers plenty of misinformed votes.Nice democracy!

It's not a "blunder." It's an obvious attempt to "manufacture consent."

Seriously, if everything is on the up everywhere in Iran then explain to me why Iran has built a uranium enrichment facility inside a mountain inside a military base? Why is the US the bad guy? What role does the extremists play? What role does the President of Iran play when giving speeches publicly that Israel must be wiped off the face of the map? What role does the Iranian goverment play with funding they give to terroists cells? RT does not report the news; RT reports their propaganda.

The New York Times has less relevancy than the national enquirer. actually all msm is pure horseshit

They cant pay there employees, the CEO jumped ship with 15 million….I am surprised they still are getting credit from the paper companies….maybe Barry will be ordered too bail them out, they need propaganda vehicles.

Actually there is no international law that prohibits a country to have an atomic bomb. Why US don't drop this stupid pretext and attack Iran to bring freedom and democracy to the country?

@may291958 The Islamic terrorists were funded by the CIA to outst the Russians from Afghanistan (source: Robin Cook, MP for England now dead). The US is Babylon in Biblical prophecy, a harlot nation that uses "merchandising" (Revelation 18).

@may291958 I'm not up for an argument here, just giving you a simple fact that has been lied about by our governments & press; AfterDinnerJazz never said israel must be wiped off the map, never. It's pure fiction. He said "zionism should be wiped from the pages of history". Anyone who can provide proof to the contrary wins a prize!:) Now look closer to home for the propagandists.

New York Times is nothing more than an Arm of U.S. Gov. / Intelligence , JUST LIKE CNN , FOX and NBC . It's reported today that " Israel posed as CIA to recruit Terrorists " Covered Up by MSM . They are all propagandists …

IRAN is threat to U.S. goal of Full Spectrum Dominance & to keep Israel regional super power . but IRAN HAS military capabilities , i.e. Russian missile Technology is superior in certain areas to U.S. based on SS-n-22 , Faster than NATO Missiles and has longer distance . Meaning , surface to surface capabilities can hit an aircraft carrier in seconds and faster than any response .

@68noraa

The way you guys describe "the Zionist agenda" makes you look kinda nuts. These people haven't heard anything about this before. There is a huge amount of Jewish influence on both politics and the media in the US. The choice phrasing of many commenters implies an absurd over-exageration of that idea. For instance, many Jewish people oppose these zionists and their ideas. It's not like it's the Jews taking over any more than the neo-cons is Christians are taking over the US.

@ParagonFour actually if u think about it iran is just an innocent country, i mean yea theres the civil rights problem but u need to note that its a third world country and social advancement only occurs with better technology at disposal. So given time civil rights problem will be resolved. But iran having trying to be advanced like the west is being constantly hindered by the west themselves. like the sanctions about the nuclear program.
