Iran: WMDs Redux - by Stephen Lendman
Iran threatened with war and/or sanctions enough to make its economy scream.
Here we go again. Everything that goes around, comes around. We've seen it all before, each time fake. Nothing's different now.
Previous articles said US intelligence assessments through March 2011 found no evidence of Iranian nuclear weapons development.
During his December 1, 1997 - November 30, 2009 tenure as IAEA director general, Mohamed ElBaradei concurred. He carefully avoided anti-Iranian rhetoric and baseless charges.
After his departure, agency policy changed. IAEA was established as an intergovernmental scientific and technical cooperation forum. It was also to insure safe, peaceful nuclear technology applications. Initially independent, it now reports to the General Assembly and Security Council.
Current head, Yukiya Amano, politicized IAEA policy for Western interests, mainly Washington's. Doing so plays with fire, given nuclear technology stakes.
Lies launch all wars, including America's post-WW II. Israel's also.
Bogusly accusing Iran of developing nuclear weapons refutes known evidence claiming otherwise.
Washington enlisted Yamano to lie. He didn't disappoint. Ahead of his report's release, he visited Washington for instructions. Exposing his duplicity is vital.
War must be prevented at all costs. Hopefully world leaders won't tolerate it.
On November 8, former Pentagon official Michael Maloof told Press TV:
"There are some very serious questions (about Yamano's) study. It's obviously a basis for creating an atmosphere for launching an attack on Iran."- Advertisement -
"My sources tell me here in Washington that they monitor Israeli activities, and they see (things happening) unabated. There are preparations for cancellation of civilian leave, not only these tests, but also fueling and arming missiles. It's building up to a crescendo!"
"I have not seen, and no one has convinced me, that Iran is going beyond just enriching uranium for the purpose of medical and other (nonmilitary) purposes."
"I'm really concerned that some accident is going to create another hostility."
