Americans fabricating documents, says Iran: Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi, a former head of the country’s atomic energy establishment, said at a Saturday press conference in Tehran theInternational Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which functions under the aegis of the United Nations, was succumbing to U.S. pressure.
Mr. Salehi was responding to reports attributed to unnamed diplomats that the IAEA, next week, would release documents that would raise suspicions that Iran was actively pursuing atomic weapons, a charge that Tehran has staunchly and consistently denied.
Mr. Salehi signaled that the West was habituated to using fabricated documents, and referred specifically to the accusation ahead of the 2003-war against Iraq that it had sourced uranium from Niger to run a weapon-oriented nuclear programme. “The Americans raised documents like this in the past” he said pointing to the “Niger scandal,” when forged documents were “used as a pretext to invade Iraq”. “After killing tens of thousands of innocent people, it was discovered that it was a forged document,” Mr. Salehi observed.
I am afraid He may be right but what do we do? I have long maintained that their need for nuclear power could be valid and necessary but that it is indeed a front for their covert nuclear weapons drive.
The middle east and the West both rightly fear Iran having nuclear weapons. Israel’s warnings on Iran get quiet nods in Gulf: Among the many alliances of convenience in the Middle East, one is so unusual that the partners can barely hint about it publicly: Israel and the Gulf Arab states linked by shared fears over Iran’s nuclear program. While their deeper disputes on the Palestinians effectively block any strategic breakthroughs, the recent warnings from Israel and the West about military options against Iran invariably draw in the Gulf and its rare meeting of minds with Jerusalem.
We have discussed the Iranian threat ad nauseum. The United States har armed all its so called middle east allies with advanced weaponry in hopes that they will fight Iran on the ground if necessary and the western allies will fight from the Persian Gulf with significant naval assets.out of fear of Iran Saudi Arabia has opened its airspace to Israel for an attack
Remember we do have a lot to fear here: I have said many times that having legitimacy is not Ayatollah Khamenei’s concern! Ayatollah Khomeini betrayed the 1979 revolution right off the bat and Khamenei is following him. That is why the most popular Ayatollah in Iran Ayatollah Sistani who has lived in Iraq since he was a teenager but visited Iran every year left Iran for Iraq and has never returned.
Ayatollah Sistani is gaining more converts every day. Ayatollah Montazeri was a leader of the Revolution too and has disagreed with Khamenei’s betrayal of the Revolution. Instead of leaving likeAyatollah Sistani he chose to stay in Iran and has frequently butted heads with Khamenei. Ayatollah Sistani the most powerful Ayatollah in Iran has stayed out of Iran since the 1979 Revolution. He said the Revolution was betrayed and it was. Ayatollah Sistani Intrigue
Reading the book by Con Coughlin titled Khomeini’s Ghost – The Iranian Revolution and the Rise of Militant Islam while as usual not totally correct it certainly makes you think and put everything in its proper frightening perspective. Please look at the book review and decide for yourself. From Khomeini’s response on his return to Iran after 15 years of exile to today’s events it all makes sense and the world better be concerned as there is more than idle threats and braggadocio coming from Ahmadinejad. Khomeini’s Ghost – The Iranian Revolution and the …
When asked by a journalist how he felt upon returning to Iran after 15 years in exile. Khomeini’s curt, one-word reply “nothing” Whoa! From day one of his return to Iran Khomeini expressed no love for Iran only a love of the atom bomb. The drive even then was to possess a nuclear weapon though that desire is still denied until Iran can get their hands on one.
I have tried to give Iran the benefit of the doubt when they say their nuclear desires are peaceful knowing they could use nuclear power as an energy source for their growing population. I have always asserted that perceived need could be cover for the real goal of developing a nuclear weapon. I now believe it is!
I do not trust Iran an Iota any more nor am I afraid do I trust us. I have said numerous times that eventually someone will find an excuse to start this war valid or not and it is now imminent!
