In the above video, produced by NRO TV, Daniel Pipes gives us two choices — either launch a “unilateral strike” (a neutral term for mass murder) or join the neocons “in being very serious with the Iranians and making clear to them we will attack if they don’t stop” developing a nuclear energy program.
Pipes, who believes Muslims are “brown-skinned peoples cooking strange foods and not exactly maintaining Germanic standards of hygiene,” of course prefers the former over the latter, as neocons are determined to flatten Muslim and Arab countries, destroy their culture as they are destroying it in Iraq, and pitch millions of people into a pre-civilized condition, or at least one minus the amenities of modern life.
Daniel Pipes realizes the Iranians will not stop developing nuclear energy and they have the right to do so under the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Pipes and the neocons also realize Iran’s Bushehr nuclear power plant, built by the Russian, will begin operating this autumn. “Under the agreement with Russia, Iran is to return spent nuclear fuel rods from the reactor as a safeguard to banish fears that Iran might misuse the rods to build nuclear weapons,” reports IRNA. “IAEA is the monitoring mechanism for everything we do in Iran in the area of nuclear power plant. The entire project is under IAEA control,” said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
The neocons do not trust the IAEA and, besides, the idea is not to prevent Iran from attaining nuclear energy but rather providing a pretext to bomb the daylights out of the country, same as the neocons-in-waiting bombed Iraq during and after the so-called Gulf War. Prior to Bush Senior’s invasion, Iraq was the most advanced country in the Arab world, now it is on par with sub-Saharan Africa. It is all part of the neocon plan, developed in partnership with the Israelis, to fragment and balkanize the Middle East, as sketched out by Lieutenant-Colonel Ralph Peters (see his map, published in the Armed Forces Journal, June 2006).

Finally, Pipes said the neocons will attack Iran in the remaining ten weeks of Bush’s term if Barack Obama is elected. Pipes seems to think Obama is an Iran appeaser, never mind he has demonstrated hostility toward the country, most notably while addressing AIPAC. “Sen. Barack Obama said Friday the use of military force should not be taken off the table when dealing with Iran, which he called ‘a threat to all of us,’” the Chicago Tribune reported on March 3, 2007. “Obama said global leaders must do whatever it takes to stop Iran from enriching uranium and acquiring nuclear weapons…. While Obama wouldn’t rule out force, he said the United States should engage in ‘aggressive diplomacy combined with tough sanctions’ to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear threat.”
Earlier this week, again going before AIPAC, Obama said there was no greater threat to Israel than Iran. He also accused Iran of supporting “violent extremists” and pursuing a “nuclear capability that could spark a dangerous arms race,” according to the Jerusalem Post (see video). “The danger from Iran is grave and real and my goal will be to eliminate this threat,” he declared, the AFP reported. “The Iranian regime supports violent extremes. And challenges across the region. It pursues a nuclear capability that could spark a dangerous arms race.”
Obviously, for neocons such as Daniel Pipes, this is not enough.
Besides, they want to do it their way.
