This whole fiasco has been hypocrisy from the start. Iran isn’t allowed a nuclear bomb because Washington says so. How many nuclear bombs does Washington control? And Tel Aviv? And Paris? And London? And Pakistan? Russia, China and a host of others?

But Iran is the big special, unique case, the one with lots of oil, gas and a spirit of defiance since the CIA’s dictator was run out of the country in 1979. All very distasteful.

The US and Israel threaten first use strikes against the world. An Iranian bomb would be a deterrent against being attacked in such a first-use strike. Everyone with any sense knows that nuclear weapons are useful as deterrents and not much else. It’s a MAD world.

Keeping Iran in an essentially defenseless position keeps open the door for future wars. The Republican congress won’t even approve that, and so look for a war on Iran sooner rather than later.

Obama: Historic deal reached on Iran nuclear program

As Monty Python said, “It’s recently come to our attention how much there is left for us to own.”

Sixteen Central Issues Which Cannot be Ignored

I find this a bit funny, but pathetic too.  The EU dutifully does whatever the petulant US cold warriors demand:

“USA publishes sanctions list with several Russian and Ukrainian officials”

What triggered this?  A vote of the Crimean people that went against Obama.  That’s all.  This move is directly the result of a people’s referendum.

The naked hypocrisy of the west is beyond satire.  In the name of “democracy” they are going to great provocations to void the democratic process.  Their undemocratic fascist coup gang in Ukraine is supported uncritically, despite being elected by no one.

Political theater like this should be implausible.  I guess the audience will buy anything since they know very little about any of these matters.  I doubt Americans could find Ukraine on a map, or Russia for that matter.

If any other nation in the world behaved as the US does, Americans would be condemning it as the second coming of the Nazis…

R2P and Genocide Prevention
The Good Intentions That Pave the Road to War


by DIANA JOHNSTONE

You students of history should read carefully. This new creation, “Right to Protect” or R2P, is a tool for western imperial powers to launch illegal wars of aggression against targeted nations that remain disobedient.

The moral bankruptcy of western nations is revealed particularly in the current ongoing terrorism against Syria, as well as their/our utter failure to support a UN multinational peace keeping force in Rwanda in 1994. In the case of Syria, the US wants “regime change” so as to weaken the Iran/Syria/Russia alliance. In the case of Rwanda, the US didn’t see any immediate benefit, or “national interest” and simply abandoned 800,000 people to be butchered.

See Shake Hands With the Devil (2007).

PS

The ghoul Madeleine Albright (D) as well as Clinton’s war secretary William Cohen, both guilty of genocide against the civilians of Iraq through a sanctions regime, are shockingly now part of a “Genocide Prevention Task Force.”

Albright is, of course, most infamous for knowingly murdering 500,000 Iraqi children, which you can watch in this clip:
