Regime change may be in the works. The same stupid failed policies for which we will all pay the price in and which the world economy is due to be devastated even more further simply because a nuclear weapons possessing state such as Israel thinks Iran might be developing what Israel already has in major megatonage in the Negev.  Brace yourselves for more bullshit.

    “Brace yourselves for more bullshit.”
