Let’s not miss a single opportunity to demonise Iran, even if it’s justified

February 23, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’ve written about the new House of Commons report on the electro-magnetic pulse threat on Infosecurity Magazine: The Electro-Magnetic Pulse threat to national infrastructures.

But lookee here:

However, certain states such as Iran could potentially pose a realistic threat in the future, even if it does not currently do so, if nuclear non-proliferation efforts are not successful.

The grammar’s wrong. And House of Commons Committees don’t get their grammar wrong.

But remove ‘such as Iran’ and ‘even if it does not currently do so’, and the grammar’s good again:

However, certain states could potentially pose a realistic threat in the future if nuclear non-proliferation efforts are not successful.

Added later? Affirming the specific nuclear threat from Iran? Politicking in action?
