Nuclear Roulette Update
Nuclear talks are a ruse.
by Stephen Lendman
Multiple P5 + 1 talks were held. Almaty, Kazakstan ones are the latest. Nothing gets accomplished. Washington obstructionism prevents it. Israel does so covertly.
Netanyahu reacted as expected. Bluster substitutes for reason. "(T)here are no measures that will make Iran heed the demands of the international community aside from military sanctions against it," he said.
Iran won't end its "military nuclear program. (It) continues to violate all the international standards. Therefore I believe that the world must tighten the sanctions and make it clear that if it continues with its plan, there will be military sanctions."
He means war.
Nuclear talks are subterfuge. Washington, Israel, and EU nations know Iran's program is peaceful. Claiming otherwise is red herring cover for regime change.
US plans are longstanding. Independent governments aren't tolerated. Subservient pro-Western ones are demanded. In 1979, Iran ended a generation of repressive Reza Shah Pahlavi rule.
