Reuters broken record -- broken record -- broken record

Reuters frequently fails to reset the propaganda switch, even when the news passes it by.  Take for example, this story by correspondent Jeremy Laurence about a news conference yesterday where a senior official with the US State Department noted that a failure of diplomatic sanctions against Iran will inevitably bring pressure for "a different kind of solution".  Laurence writes:
The United States and Israel have not ruled out military action against Iran's nuclear facilities if diplomacy fails to resolve a dispute over a programme they suspect is aimed at developing atomic weapons.
Iran denies it is seeking nuclear weapons and says it would respond to any strike by attacking Israel and U.S. interests in the Gulf.
Not a word about the most recent report from the United Nations IAEA, the independent atomic energy watchdog, that concluded Iran has carried out numerous activities relevant to the development of a nuclear bomb.

After all, that would confirm the "suspicions" of the United States and Israel and elevate the "dispute" to the status of something much more -- much more -- much more.
