Like America and Israel, he wants Iran to prove a negative. He told Imam Khamenei he's not satisfied with peaceful reassurances. He did so on orders from Washington.

He's "frustrated" about failed international talks. He points fingers the wrong way. He blames Iran for Western intransigency.

He speaks with forked tongue. He mimics John Kerry. America's new Secretary of State said progress depends on if Iran's ready to "make and discuss real offers and engage in a real dialogue."

Doing so is impossible without legitimate negotiating partners. Iran hasn't had them in decades. It doesn't now.

On February 16, Press TV headlined "Iran censures Ban Ki-moon for remarks on nuclear energy program."

Iranian UN ambassador Mohammad Khazaei called what he said "unfortunate." He acted "in contradiction to his duties and against international principles."

He called on Ban to observe justice and confidence-building measures. He urged him to use his position responsibly. It's his job to do so. He never once tried. He's complicit in imperial crimes.

He makes unjust accusations. Iran has every right to object. It's entitled to use nuclear power peacefully. Ban knows but won't say. He regurgitates what Washington tells him to say.

America and Israel claim Tehran is months away from producing a bomb. No evidence whatever suggests it. Saying so is malicious propaganda.

Kerry picked up where Hillary Clinton left off. He represents imperial lawlessness. He's Israel's man at State.

He said "(w)e are not going to get trapped into a delay-after-delay process here." 

"It is incumbent on the Iranians to prove that they are prepared to meet our willingness, President Obama's willingness, again and again stated by the president, to be open to a diplomatic resolution here."

Washington doesn't negotiate. It demands. Other countries are pressured to comply. Multiple threats follow otherwise. Iran's familiar with American double-dealing.

It's hard imagining why they put up with it so long. Job's patience would be taxed. Tehran prioritizes peace and good relations. It won't stop trying to achieve them. Washington and Israel obstruct them. Rogue states operate that way.
