Thoughts On That Maybe-Deal About Iran's Nuclear Achievements

- Some preliminary deal has been agreed upon in Geneva that will restrict
Iran's civil nuclear research and production program in exchange for lifting
The deal is unfinished. The devil is in the details and those
have yet to be agreed upon. The deal will fail when on June 30 those agreements
will turn out to be unachievable.
There are many distortions and lies in the "western" reporting
on the issue. Facts that are left out include:
- The whole crisis over a "nuclear Iran" is
based on lies from Israeli and U.S. intelligence services. The target of the
U.S. and Israeli operations was never a "nuclear Iran" but an Iranian
Islamic Republic that insists on independent internal and foreign policies.
- Iranian leaders have declared that any weapons of mass
destruction contradict the philosophical and religious base of the Islamic
State of Iran. They have insisted on this and did not retaliate even when
their cities came under chemical attacks during the Iraq-Iran war.
- All U.S. intelligence services
agree that Iran does not have any military nuclear program. There is
nothing to fear from a pure civil nuclear program in Iran.
- All sanctions on Iran are illegal in the very first
place. They have no basis in facts or law.
There is now a very disturbing tendency in U.S. commentary,
following Obama's lead, to
say that the (unfinished) deal should be taken because it the only
alternative is war.
- Who would start and wage such a war?
- On what legal basis?
- For what purpose given that Iran clearly has no military
Such stupid alternative "deal or war" as argument for a deal
is dangerous because the deal can still fail and the hawks will then argue that
"even the lubral commentators said 'deal or war' so now it must be war."
Indeed, given Obama's very aggressive foreign policy thus far
I can not exclude that war on Iran is his real aim and only hidden behind very
public but sham negotiations to make a public case for it.
