Washington Opposes Peace
America won't tolerate peace and stability.
by Stephen Lendman
America's history is blood-drenched. Permanent war is policy. Peace and stability are verboten.
One nation after another is targeted. Aggressive wars follow. Rule of law principles and democratic values are discarded. Wealth, power and unchallengeable dominance alone matter.
Scoundrel supporters glorify what they should condemn. More on them below. Syria is being ravaged and destroyed. Spurious accusations target Iran. Neither country threatens anyone. Malicious lies say otherwise.
Headlines claim Tehran keeps accelerating efforts to produce nuclear weapons. No evidence whatever is cited. On August 25, Reuters headlined "IAEA gets no deal with Iran on bomb research suspicions," saying:
So-called "concerns" about "suspected nuclear weapons research by Tehran" weren't resolved. IAEA chief inspector Herman Nackaerts said important differences remain. Agreement looks unlikely.
The IAEA was established to promote peaceful nuclear energy use. Allegedly an independent autonomous organization, it reports to the Security Council and General Assembly. Under current head Yukiya Amano, it's an imperial tool.
Washington chose him. He serves US interests. His mandate excludes independence, objectivity, and honesty. Despite no evidence of Iranian nuclear weapons research and development, he claims otherwise.
Earlier he used forged or otherwise suspect documents. What long ago was discredited became Exhibit A. Old material was recycled to look new. Amano's predecessor, Mohamed ElBaradei, didn't play by US rules and got sacked.
What Washington says goes. Chief inspector Nackaerts' mandate is prevent resolution. Otherwise US/Israeli accusations fall flat. Imperial aims are sidetracked until new schemes emerge.
Regime change is policy. War plans are longstanding. Timing alone is unknown. Perhaps 2013 is planned. The fullness of time will tell. A steady drumbeat of inflammatory media reports and commentaries advances the ball for what no one should contemplate or tolerate.
On nuclear issues, no country cooperates more than Iran. It exceeds what most others would tolerate. It want equal, fair treatment. It deserves no less. Its program is peaceful. It complies fully with NPT provisions.
America long ago spurned them. So does Israel. Both countries are nuclear outlaws. Headlines don't accuse them of threatening world peace. IAEA inspectors don't target them. They operate extrajudicially and get away with it.
