The lies on Iran keep on coming

ABC News tonight was a good example of the reporting on the Iran that permeates Western media. After trumpeting the election of the "moderate" candidate in the recent election, they hastened to point out that it wouldn't make much difference because the key decisions are made by Khamenei, who is, in their words, "strongly pro-nuclear." Well, he is strongly pro-nuclear power, but at the same time has issued a fatwa against nuclear weapons. A fact you might think was important since we just finished hearing how he has the final word on such things. And a fact which also casts light on the previous part of the story, which is how much the average Iranian is suffering due to the economic war (called "sanctions") being waged by the West against Iran, all on the pretext that Iran is developing nuclear weapons.
