Baird and other top Harper government officials like Turkey's are pro-Washington stooges like Turkey's Erdogan. They get marching orders, salute and obey. 

Iran's UN mission denounced Baird's duplicitous "double-standard" policies, saying:

"The Islamic Republic of Iran like other members of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) is entitled to the inalienable right to develop, research, produce and use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and Iran is resolved to safeguard this inalienable rights."

He added that nuclear armed and dangerous Israel is "the sole source of insecurity and instability in the Middle East and beyond it."

Russia supports Iran. On October 2, Tehran's Moscow ambassador Seyed Mahmoud Reza Sajjadi said:

"Russians have never said or held the belief that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons program." 

"For that reason, Russia is emphasizing transparency on Iran's nuclear activities through legal means while it is strongly against the imposition of sanctions outside the UN resolutions, political pressures or threatening Iran with military action." 

"Russians have realized that our insistence in the nuclear issue is not aimed at nuclear weapons but it is due to our opposition to the language of force."

Iran fully complies with NPT provisions, he stressed. Ulterior motives are behind applying lawless sanctions, exerting other pressures, and pursuing belligerent policies.

US and Israeli policy makers exhibit visceral anti-Iranian hostility. War looks like more than an option. It may already be policy. Chuck Freilich formerly served as Israel's deputy national security adviser. He's now Belfer Center Harvard Kennedy School senior fellow.

On October 4, he headlined his Foreign Policy article "Inside Bibi's Bunker," saying:

He's stacking his cabinet with likeminded hardliners. He wants support for attacking Iran. He's a notorious warmonger. Sensible Israelis are fed up with him for good reason.

A previous article said he represents state terrorism, occupation harshness, racist hate, neoliberal rapaciousness, and potential catastrophic regional war able to go global if waged.

He deplores peace. He's all take and no give. He calls diplomacy a four-letter word. He turns a blind eye to equity and justice. He's contemptuous of human and civil rights. He maliciously calls Iran's peaceful nuclear program an existential threat. 

He's silent on Israel's stockpile of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. He won't say it's state policy to use them if threatened.
