Britain's leading neocon pushes fake Iranian 'nuclear memo'
by Justin Raimondo, January 04, 2010
"In describing his nightmarish vision of history as "eternal return," the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche averred:
"What if a demon crept after you one day or night in your loneliest solitude and said to you: ‘This life, as you live it now and have lived it, you will have to live again and again, times without number; and there will be nothing new in it, but every pain and every joy and every thought and sigh and all the unspeakably small and great in your life must return to you, and everything in the same series and sequence – and in the same way this spider and this moonlight among the trees, and in the same way this moment and I myself. The eternal hourglass of existence will be turned again and again – and you with it, you dust of dust!’ – Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who thus spoke?"
I’m afraid I hear that demon by my side at this very moment, whispering the awful truth in my ear as I read the "news" – reported by the Times of London – that there now exists documentary proof Iran has been pursuing a nuclear weapons program in defiance of the United Nations and directly contradicting its stated objective of generating nuclear power for purely peaceful purposes. According to this document (posted here in English and here [.pdf] in Farsi), the Iranians are intent on producing a "nuclear initiator" or "trigger," which supposedly has no possible civilian application.......
As for Kamm and his fellow scamsters over at the Times: they won’t be able to get away with this for too long. After all, a known liar is a marked man: after a long career steeped in deception, with one story after another proved to have been total nonsense – and not even very finely crafted nonsense, at that – people stop listening. Worse – for the liar, that is – people start actively discounting anything that comes out of his mouth: if he says it, why, it must not be true. This is a good rule to follow in the case of the Times, and particularly when it comes to the prolific outpourings of Oliver Kamm, yet another ex-Trotskyist with a disdain for the truth and a taste for war experienced from afar."
