An American academic (University of Wisconsin Professor James Fetzer):
US government has refined the art of deceiving the American people with "fabricated reasons" for "going to war with nations that pose no threat" to them. On the contrary, Iran has been a peaceful nation that never initiated attacks on other countries."
Yet "the situation is completely absurd," he said, referring to the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) report accusing Iran of developing nuclear weapons, while Israel has "a vast stock of nuclear weapons" and has "refused to allow inspections."
(*** Iran has strongly dismissed the report as "unbalanced, unprofessional and prepared with political motivation and under political pressure mostly by the United States." )
