Iranian President Hassan Rouhani




Reading some of the latest comments from US Senators on the nuclear "negotiations" with Iran one wonders why Iran would even consider "negotiating" anything with "official" Washington.

As you recall, a month ago 47 of these cretins sent a letter to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei stating any deal without their ratification would essentially sink it-and any new president could revoke it with the stroke of a pen.

Over the weekend Senator Marco Rubio-a potential Repub nominee for president-let it be known he'll introduce an amendment stating approval of any deal be contingent on Iran's recognition of Israel's right to exist. Ah Senator Rubio how about Israel's existing nuclear arsenal and their not being a signatory to the nuclear non proliferation treaty. Any thoughts on that senator? But as we know no such truth shall ever be uttered by those in the world's "most deliberative body".

And this from Senator Johnny Isakson of Georgia, "As we debate our foreign policy toward Iran, it seems more appropriate than ever that we compensate the victims of the Iran hostage crisis, who were forced to endure unimaginable fear, despair and torture for 444 days". Not to dismiss what those hostages had to endure Johnny, but how about mentioning the CIA's role initiating the coup of the legitimately elected government in Iran in 1953, that put the American backed and brutal Shah Pahlavi on the Peacock Throne who inflicted torture and murder of countless Iranian's during his reign until he was finally overthrown by the Iranian people in 1979, 26 years later.

Of course that little bit of "history" is obviously missing from the senators comments; a history pretty much unrecognized, even unknown by most of the American people. But it's so typical of the one sided, often distorted history we Americans are indoctrinated with. There simply is no recognition of America's role in perpetrating horror on a people, them resisting and taking legitimate actions against their oppressor. We so easily forget our own colonial history and oppression under British rule.

However, Iranian's know the factual history and it's not lost on them.

Getting back to the recently concluded interim negotiations with the P5&1 and Iran, the latter has made clear it isn't going to sign unless ALL economic sanctions are lifted.

In fact, last Thursday the president of Iran, Hassan Rouhani put it succinctly, "We will not sign any agreement, unless all economic sanctions are totally lifted on the first day of the implementation of the deal".

So one would think that equivocation should put to rest the current idea being floated the IAEA must first give its final blessing Iran isn't attempting to produce a nuclear weapon before the sanctions could be lifted-an apparent stipulation thrown in by the West which could take years and obviously unacceptable to Iran.

No sooner than Rouhani spoke, US Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, himself a nuclear physicist who took part in the negotiations with Iran told CNN a "ballpark" figure to lift the sanctions would be "six months"; not exactly how the Iranian president put it.

One could say these "diplomatic" negotiations require a give and take process. But no different than the supposed "negotiations" between the Israeli's and Palestinian's-the occupier and the occupied, hardly negotiations among equals which unsurprisingly has never produced a solution- the negotiations with Iran are hardly among equals with the hegemonic US dictating the terms with no respect for the rights of Iran to conduct a peaceful nuclear program as signee to the nuclear non proliferation treaty.

Iran has agreed to these talks simply to get the economic sanctions lifted. Save for the hostage crisis in '79-a direct result of the '53 US initiated coup, all the threats to Iran, the current economic sanctions, the 2010 "Stuxnet" computer worm disrupting Iranian processing of uranium, the naval carrier task force cruising in the Persian Gulf, US proxy Israel constantly threatening to bomb Iran's nuclear sites, all illegal and/or considered imminent threats and hostile acts under international law-something which has no meaning to "official" Washington that ignores the law as it pleases.

Iran has made clear it will not be bullied into accepting a deal that won't get the sanctions lifted and immediately as Rouhani has stated.

Stay tuned.
