David S. Broder (born 9/11-1929), the Jewish columnist with the Jewish-owned The Washington Post, writing under the heading “How Obama might recover” said that Barack Obama should bomb Iran to boost American economy and get re-elected in 2012.
“Here is where Obama is likely to prevail. With strong Republican support in Congress for challenging Iran’s ambition to become a nuclear power, he can spend much of 2011 and 2012 orchestrating a showdown with the mullahs. This will help him politically because the opposition party will be urging him on. And as tensions rise and we accelerate preparations for war, the economy will improve,” he wrote.
I remember reading a similar economic predictions from neocons (mostly Jewish) ahead of Afghan War (2001) and Iraq War (2003).
It’s interesting to note that while the US economy is in recession, thanks to wars for Israel (Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon and Gaza) and US$968 billion bail-out for The (Jewish) Wall Street. Some American economy-pundits predict that it’s going to cost American taxpayers more than US$3 trillion for the US wars for Israel in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Dean Baker with the Center for Economic and Policy Research had this to say to the ‘Iranophobe’ David Broder: “So, we have two routes to prosperity. We can either build up our physical infrastructure and improve the skills and education of our workers or we can go kill Iranians. Broder has made it clear where he stands”.
Contrary to America’s financial mess – IMF in its 2010 report said that Islamic Republic even under 30-year western sanctions – has become the third largest exporter in the Middle East after Saudi Arabia ($242.5 billion) and UAE ($220.3 billion). Iran’s export stood at US$95 billion. Iran’s non-oil export has already passed US$14.3 billion during the current year.
