As the United States seems to be nearing re-entry into the Iran Nuclear Deal, the corporate media are whipping out every piece of war propaganda in order to drive a wedge between the Biden Administration and the Iranian government.
This Monday, in a piece so outrageous that it verges on the comical, Fox News published a piece which directly claim’s Iran has been seeking technology to develop “Weapons of Mass Destruction” as of last year.
The article, written by Benjamin Weinthal, using widely over-inflating reports which carry no evidence to back them up, added the finishing touch to the current mainstream media vernacular about Iran, bringing us from 2021 back to 2003. “WMDs” they are now crying, in a blatant attempt to side with Washington’s neoconservative tank and place pressure on the Biden administration to scrap the idea of peace with Iran and to maintain its brutal sanctions regime.
But it does not end there, Iran is also now meddling in the Scottish elections, or at least the “experts”, quoted by The Telegraph, are “almost certain” of it. The source for this claim, a neoconservative think tank named the ‘Henry Jackson Society’ again presents no tangible evidence to support their claims, but any chance to mix Iran into something that British conservatives oppose – a possible Scottish Independence referendum – they’ll take. If history is any indication, when a think tank, talking about a topic they are clearly biased on, says that they are “pretty sure” or “almost certain” about something, that typically means that they are either flat out lying and/or have zero evidence to corroborate their theory.
