Full Text: IAEA Report on Iran

24-02-2008 14:46

The IAEA's document in full, since much of what the media says comes from relatively few sources, and misrepresents what the report says, consistent with the media's overall treatment of this issue.

Note that the only outstanding issues are those arising from accusations made by Israel and the United States, and there is no evidence thus far to back them up.

Israeli Extremists STILL Trying to Start Iran War

23-02-2008 15:48

How I love that word, "demand" in this article!

Now, if these sanctions are to be passed by the Security Council, which unfortunate member of the Knesset gets to make those trips to Beijing and Moscow to get China and Russia to go along with further sanctions?

No one.

Because Israel knows that Russia and China will not change their positions on further sanctions.

How this may shake out is with Israel declaring the UN "irrelevant", which they will use as a justification for unilateral action.

Israel, of course, has one little, tiny problem which is not addressed in this article

War with Russia, anyone?

I would like to hope that the policy makers in Israel are weighing this very heavily in terms of what their next actions will be if no further UN sanctions come about.

Caucasus breakaway regions
Western public opinion has been misled. Unfolding events and realities on the ground in the former Yugoslavia have been carefully manipulated.

Germany and the U.S. have deep-seated geo-strategic interests in dividing Yugoslavia. Washington, D.C. and Berlin have also been the first governments to recognize the secessionist states, which resulted from the breakup of the Yugoslav federation.
