Since its very inception, the United States has violated this bilateral agreement.   It has continued its relentless propaganda into Iran through the Voice of America, Radio Farda, and other State-funded media outlets such as BBC Persian which receives significant funding from the US government . Launched in early 2009, the BBC Persian as well as Voice of America played a significant role in instigating violence post 2009 Iranian Presidential elections.

It is abundantly clear that America is not a "Good Samaritan' State, and its policies are not driven by compassion. Ironically, with drones spying on Americans ,   network neutrality undermined , and internet censorship abound at home, the Obama administration demands that Iran open itself to further sabotage and subversion guised as compassion. In other words, embrace the implementation of Donald Rumsfeld's Information Operations Roadmap -- namely, computer network attacks, psychological operations, "maximum control of the entire electromagnetic spectrum", and US ability to   "disrupt or destroy the full spectrum of globally emerging communications systems, sensors, and weapons systems dependent on the electromagnetic spectrum".   

One would be hard-pressed to believe that the newly imposed sanctions on Iran are a reflection of care and concern for the Iranian people, but rather, they are punishment for resisting the net war.   Edmund Burke was quite right to say that "As People crushed by laws, have no hope but to evade power. If the laws are their enemies, they will be enemies to the law; and those who have must to hope and nothing to lose will always be dangerous."
