For years now, the drumbeat for war with Iran has been growing steadily louder from the Likudniks in Israel and their ideological bedmates in Washington. Weary, exhausted, and economically depleted after a year of disastrous entanglements in the Middle East, it is hard to believe that the American public is eager for yet another conflict, yet every few months without fail there are new signs that the Israeli leadership is sharpening their tools of warfare and cries are renewed in the corridors of power in Washington for unflinching support for whatever action Tel Aviv decides to take. As we examined last week, this drumbeat has reached fever pitch yet again in the last few months, and now Washington insiders, think tanks and policy wonks are once again openly discussing the possibility of staging a false flag event to blame on their Iranian enemy and launch a “retaliatory strike.”
But what would the fallout of such an action be? Well, for starters, there would be literal fallout.
In this episode of our EyeOpener Report James Corbett discusses possible consequence of an armed strike on Iran- from the economic fallout, to the potential release of radioactive materials into the atmosphere, and “legitimization” of the use of first-strike nuclear weapons as tactical weapons.
