Escalating Pressure on Iran

Regime change is prioritized.

by Stephen Lendman

Secretary of State John Kerry's clear where he stands. He laid down markers. He demands Iran comply with Washington's demands. Left unsaid is what follows otherwise.

On February 26, nuclear talks will resume. P5+1 countries (Washington, Britain, Germany, China and Russia) will meet Iranian negotiators. They'll do so in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

Targeting Iran's peaceful nuclear program is red herring cover for regime change. Good faith negotiations aren't possible. Washington obstructs them. So does Israel behind the scenes.

Kerry disingenuously says:

"The international community is ready to respond if Iran comes prepared to talk real substance and to address the concerns, which could not be more clear, about their nuclear program."

"It's disturbing," he added. "And so my plea to the Iranians - or my statement - is a clear statement. We are prepared to let diplomacy be the victor in this confrontation over their nuclear program."

"The president has made it clear. He is prepared to talk about a peaceful nuclear program." 

"Iran has a choice. They have to prove to the world that it is peaceful and we are prepared to sit reasonably and negotiate how they can do that. Or they can chose to be more isolated." 

"The president has made it clear that his preference is to have a diplomatic solution. But if he cannot get there, he is prepared to do whatever is necessary to make certain that Iran does not have a nuclear weapon."

Kerry, Obama, other US officials, and Israeli ones want Iran to prove a negative. They demand unconditional surrender. Conflict resolution won't follow because both countries obstruct it. War preparations continue. 

Anything in 2013 is possible. Obama talks peace. At the same time, he plans war. That's how rogue leaders operate. Obama replicates the worst of them. He's a world class scoundrel.

Iran sought normalized relations for decades. Washington and Israel categorically spurn them. Iran can't have them without good faith partners.
