I think this interview with Noam Chomsky is very good, very important, very informative.
Particularly to me was his assessment of why the USA constantly demonises Iran. It is always a mystery to me why America hates Russia and Iran so much. To where they maintain a stream of disinformation, ridiculous lies, about those two countries.
In this case Noam says that Iran has a small defence budget – I find that very significanct – and its Defence philosophy is Defence. Not Attack.
Despite what the USA would have us believe. They’d have us believe that Iran seeks, like a slavering mad dog, to immediately launch an all out attack on Israel and I don’t know whatever else.
And Noam says the USA wants to be able to do what it does now: use force freely wherever it feels like within the Middle East.
Hmmm. Has the ring of truth about it.
