Setting Up the Next US-Israeli Target

This is an exhaustive and somewhat exasperated background piece by Ed Herman and David Peterson on the Orwellian "Iranian crisis" the US claims to be confronting. It's quite similar in tone and scope to the Counterpunch piece they penned last May.

Also be sure to peruse the footnotes, which are extensive and hyperlinked. The article provides a wealth of background and a perspective that you won't be seeing in many other places.
