Upcoming Iranian Nuclear Talks

US/Israeli obstructionism assures failure.

by Stephen Lendman

Multiple previous P5+1 talks were held. America manipulated them to fail. So did Israel covertly. Western nations were pressured to go along.

On February 26, new talks will be held in Almaty, Kazahhstan. Expect no more this time than earlier. 

It bears repeating. Tehran's nuclear program isn't at issue. It's red herring cover for imperial aims. It's the oil, stupid, and regional dominance.

Iran's sovereignty stands in the way. Its program is peaceful. It complies with NPT provisions. World leaders know it. So do IAEA inspectors.

Washington targets all independent governments. It wants pro-Western puppet ones replacing them. It invents reasons to do so. It operates extrajudicially in defiance of rule of law principles.

It gets UN Secretary-Generals to go along. Ban Ki-moon's one of the worst. He shames the office he holds. He spurns UN Charter principles. He's complicit in war crimes. 

He's well rewarded for doing so. He lies for Washington. He's a longstanding imperial tool. 

On February 14, the Washington Post headlined "Iran could use UN talks as cover to build bomb, Ban K-moon says."

He knows Iran has no such intention. He lies and claims otherwise. Decisive swift action should prevent what doesn't exist, he urges. 

Accelerated action should be prioritized. "We should not give much more time to the Iranians, and we should not waste time," he says. "We have seen what happened with the DPRK."

"It ended up that they (were) secretly, quietly, without any obligations, without any pressure, making progress."

The Security Council must "show a firm, decisive and effective, quick response."
