Awwwww Now, I know this will upset some of our chickenhawks who love the idea of ever more explosions over ME nations. But hopefully we as a nation aren't gullible again and don't repeat history by making the same mistakes we did in 2002-2003 when the rhetoric was clearly fraudulent to anyone with their eyes wide open. US Defense Secretary Admits "Iran Not Trying to Develop Nuclear Weapon" Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis: US Defense Secretary Admits "Iran Not Trying to Develop Nuclear Weapon" All the tin hats that disputed Ron Paul's position that Iran was not developing nuclear weapons can now hear the same thing from US Secretary of Defense. Please consider Panetta admits Iran not developing nukes. U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta let slip on Sunday the big open secret that Washington war hawks donâ€™t want widely known: Iran is not developing nuclear weapons. Appearing on CBSâ€™s Face the Nation on Sunday, Panetta admitted that despite all the rhetoric, Iran is not pursuing the ability to split atoms with weapons, saying it is instead pursuing â€śa nuclear capability.â€ť That â€ścapabilityâ€ť falls in line with what Iran has said for years: that it is developing nuclear energy facilities, not nuclear weapons. Paul is right... again.
