Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak's latest gaffe reveals the geopolitical reality about Iranian nuclear technology

[aljazeera] The classic definition of a campaign gaffe is when a politician inadvertently speaks a truth that will hurt him politically. The first George Bush committed a gaffe when he said that the idea that cutting taxes would increase government revenue was "voodoo economics". Similarly, it was a gaffe when Barack Obama said that insecure right-wingers "cling" to religion and guns. In other words, a gaffe is a politically inconvenient truth.
Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak gaffed big-time this week. In fact, this gaffe is even more colossal than when he said back in 1999 that if he were a stateless young Palestinian, he would "have joined one of the terror organisations".

Meir Dagan, the Mossad chief who retired early this year, calls bombing Iran a "stupid idea".

Another ex-Mossad chief, Ephraim Halevy, says that Iran does not present an existential threat to Israel. "The State of Israel cannot be destroyed [but] an attack on Iran could affect not only Israel, but the entire region for 100 years," he warns.

And now we have Defence Minister Ehud Barak's admission that the Israeli campaign to rush the US and Israel itself into war is based on, at best, hype and at worst, lies. Just like Iraq.

Are we really going to fall for this a second time? I don't think so because, to put it simply, we aren't that stupid. As that old adage goes: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
