Don't tell the US media but 99% of Americans view Iran as a threat
You would never know this from reading, listening to and watching the US media, but 99% of Americans believe Iran is a threat to the United States
In fact, the latest Gallup poll
shows that 99 percent of Americans believe that the development of
nuclear weapons by Iran is a “critical” or “important” threat to the
vital interests of the United States. Iran ranked as the top threat,
followed by North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons and
Commendably, UPI covered the story, reporting:
Gallup said the high level of concern Americans give to
North Korea, Iran and international terrorism, could suggest these are
areas on which the public would like the Obama administration and its
new foreign policy team to focus.
However, CAMERA could find no other major national media outlet that felt this story merited coverage. The Chicago Tribune ran an analysis piece that mentioned Americans’ concerns, only to completely discount them as “a totally irrational fear.” Apparently, writer William Pfaff knows more about Iran’s nuclear program than the IAEA and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. Or possibly, like 99 percent of Americans, Mr. Ban and IAEA inspectors are “irrational.”
But, how then does one dismiss satellite photographs
indicating a newly-operational plutonium enrichment facility protected
by “numerous anti-aircraft missile and artillery sites”? Can photographs
be kooky? Nutzo, maybe?
Where were these people on election day in the US?
