Another War (for Israel) in the Works

Does anyone remember all the lies that they were told by then-president Bush and the “mainstream media” about the grave threat to America from weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? These lies were repeated endlessly in the print and TV media despite the reports from the weapons inspectors, who had been sent to Iraq, that no such weapons existed.

The weapons inspectors did an honest job in Iraq and told the truth, but the mainstream media did not emphasize their findings. Instead, the media served as a Ministry of Propaganda, beating the war drums for the U.S. government.

Now the whole process is repeating itself. This time the target is Iran.

As there is no real case against Iran, Obama took a script from Bush’s playbook and fabricated one.

First the facts: As a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty, Iran’s nuclear facilities are open to inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which carefully monitors Iran’s nuclear energy program to make certain that no material is diverted to nuclear weapons.

The IAEA has monitored Iran’s nuclear energy program and has announced repeatedly that it has found no diversion of nuclear material to a weapons program. All 16 U.S. intelligence agencies have affirmed and reaffirmed that Iran abandoned interest in nuclear weapons years ago.

In keeping with the safeguards agreement that the IAEA be informed before an enrichment facility comes online, Iran informed the IAEA on Sept. 21 that it had a new nuclear facility under construction. By informing the IAEA, Iran fulfilled its obligations under the safeguards agreement. The IAEA will inspect the facility and monitor the nuclear material produced to make sure it is not diverted to a weapons program.

Despite these unequivocal facts, Obama announced on Sept. 25 that Iran has been caught with a “secret nuclear facility” with which to produce a bomb that would threaten the world.

The Obama regime’s claim that Iran is not in compliance with the safeguards agreement is disinformation. Between the end of 2004 and early 2007, Iran voluntarily complied with an additional protocol (Code 3.1) that was never ratified and never became a legal part of the safeguards agreement. The additional protocol would have required Iran to notify the IAEA prior to beginning construction of a new facility, whereas the safeguards agreement in force requires notification prior to completion of a new facility. Iran ceased its voluntary compliance with the unratified additional protocol in March 2007, most likely because of the American and Israeli misrepresentations of Iran’s existing facilities and military threats against them.

By accusing Iran of having a secret “nuclear weapons program” and demanding that Iran “come clean” about the nonexistent program, adding that he does not rule out a military attack on Iran, Obama mimics the discredited Bush regime’s use of nonexistent Iraqi “weapons of mass destruction” to set up Iraq for invasion.

The U.S. media, even the “liberal” National Public Radio, quickly fell in with the Obama lie machine. Steven Thomma of the McClatchy Newspapers declared the non-operational facility under construction, which Iran reported to the IAEA, to be “a secret nuclear facility.”

Thomma, reported incorrectly that the world didn’t learn of Iran’s “secret” facility, the one that Iran reported to the IAEA the previous Monday, until Obama announced it in a joint appearance in Pittsburgh the following Friday with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Obviously, Thomma has no command over the facts, a routine inadequacy of “mainstream media” reporters. The new facility was revealed when Iran voluntarily reported the facility to the IAEA on Sept. 21.

Ali Akbar Dareini, an Associated Press writer, reported, incorrectly, over AP: “The presence of a second uranium-enrichment site that could potentially produce material for a nuclear weapon has provided one of the strongest indications yet that Iran has something to hide.”

Dareini went on to write that “the existence of the secret site was first revealed by Western intelligence officials and diplomats on Friday.” Dareini is mistaken. We learned of the facility when the IAEA announced that Iran had reported the facility the previous Monday in keeping with the safeguards agreement.

Dareini’s untruthful report of “a secret underground uranium enrichment facility whose existence has been hidden from international inspectors for years” helped to heighten the orchestrated alarm.

There you have it. The president of the United States and his European puppets are doing what they do best – lying through their teeth. The U.S. “mainstream media” repeats the lies as if they were facts. The U.S. “media” is again making itself an accomplice to wars based on fabrications. Apparently, the media’s main interest is to please the U.S. government and hopefully obtain a taxpayer bailout of its failing print operations.

Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, a rare man of principle who has not sold his integrity to the U.S. and Israeli governments, refuted in his report (Sept. 7, 2009) the baseless “accusations that information has been withheld from the Board of Governors about Iran’s nuclear program. I am dismayed by the allegations of some Member states, which have been fed to the media, that information has been withheld from the Board. These allegations are politically motivated and totally baseless. Such attempts to influence the work of the Secretariat and undermine its independence and objectivity are in violation of Article VII.F. of the IAEA Statute and should cease forthwith.”

As there is no legal basis for action against Iran, the Obama regime is creating another hoax, like the nonexistent “Iraqi weapons of mass destruction.” The hoax is that a facility, reported to the IAEA by Iran, is a secret facility for making nuclear weapons.

Just as the factual reports from the weapons inspectors in Iraq were ignored by the Bush regime, the factual reports from the IAEA are ignored by the Obama regime. Like the Bush regime, the Middle East policy of the Obama regime is based in lies and deception.

Who is the worse enemy of the American people, Iran or the government in Washington and the media whores who serve it?

For your viewing pleasure and mind candy here is another post to consider
Oops: US may have faked Iran knowledge
www.abovetopsecret.com...


The International Atomic Energy Agency says its present objective regarding Iran is to try to determine whether the intelligence documents purportedly showing a covert Iranian nuclear weapons programme from 2001 to 2003 are authentic or not. The problem, according to its reports, is that Iran refuses to help clarify the issue.

But the IAEA has refused to acknowledge publicly significant evidence brought to its attention by Iran that the documents were fabricated, and has made little, if any, effort to test the authenticity of the intelligence documents or to question officials of the governments holding them, IPS has learned.

Israel's never ending game of "Iran has the bomb, you need to do something now!".
Stop being such a murdering bully cry baby nation, it makes you look bad to everyone.


We grow weary and tired of this.

I was listening to the news a little while ago. They had people calling in to 'voice their opinion' about whether Iran was a threat. I don't know where they find these people.

We sound like such idiots when we call in to news shows. People want blood.

Sometimes it just seems like the PTB are just going to make up whatever crap they want anyway. Why do they even bother anymore?

Just do whatever the hell you're going to do and let's get on with it.

Growing tired indeed.

'That guy has ADMITTED to having WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION! We need to go ahead and 'take him out.'

Too many people BUY this crap for there to ever be any outcome other than what TPTB want...

I'm as upset about the con job done on us by the Bush Admin as anyone can be, but I think it's unfair to draw strict parallels between Iraq and Iran.

If Iran really wanted to just build nuclear power stations why didn't they buy them from Canada or the USA and have them built? If they did that no one would be questioning their motives. They have the oil and the money, so it's not like they couldn't afford to hire one of the two countries to build the power stations for them.

And the chants about death to Israel and threats about whiping them off the map doesn't help the Iranian gov's position either.

Geez, if any of us had a neighbour down the street that yelled through a megaphone every day that he was goiing to kill us and your family....what would we do?

I hate war, don't want it to happen, but If Israel strikes, I hope it's surgical and no civilians are hurt.

Iran is a beautiful country with nice people. But their leader is delusional and a tyrant.

How could Israel say these things about Iran? What proof do they have that Iran is developing nukes?

I think every country shoud develop their own nuke program, that way it makes us all even and makes the world a kinder, fairer place.

Isnt that what we all want?

Um, because they are a sovereign nation and they don't want to? Imagine asking a hunter why he bags and preps game when he could just as easily go to the store and buy meat.

I actually took some time to look into this and I have yet to see any reasonable unbiased translator who actualy says that the president of iran said the "wipe of the map thing". As far as I can tell that is Israel pushing propeganda because it suits their cause. As for the balance, the chants of death to Israel or death to America.. I agree.. It's bad PR. That doesn't really help them much.

Their president is not their leader. He's nothing more than a PR stooge.
