" World according to `Noam Chomsky' prominent `American Linguist & `Political Scientist'

#AceWorldNews says Noam Chomsky, a prominent American linguist and political scientist, says the United States’ constant threat of war against Iran is a violation of the United Nations Charter.

Both of its borders have been under occupation by a hostile superpower, the United States, which is constantly violating the UN charter by leaving open what they call the saying, ‘all options are open’ — meaning the threat of war.”

Chomsky said last month during an interview with HuffPost Live. “The UN Charter bars the threat of force.”

Chomsky also questioned the US reasons to impose sanctions on Iran, saying that even the US intelligence reports do not prove that Tehran is developing a nuclear weapon.

“My feeling is that the entire discussion is kind of surreal,” Chomsky said. “There are more fundamental questions to ask. What justification does the United States have to impose sanctions in the first place?”

“As far as US intelligence knows, Iran is developing nuclear capacities, but they don’t know if they are trying to develop nuclear weapons or not,” Chomsky told HuffPost Live.

“Chances are they’re developing what’s called ‘nuclear capability,’ which many states have. That is the ability to have nuclear weapons if they decide to do it. That’s not a crime,” he added.
