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.
