Modern Musings wrote: “Reading yesterday’s paper I found an article that spoke of the new Iran sanctions being prepared by the United Nations. Two sentences in this article got my blood boiling. I like being informed, I like keeping tabs on our government but I get so emotional, baby, that sometimes I can’t intelligently respond to the absurdities I encounter. So this is what the article stated:

“Acting U.S. Ambassador Alejandro Wolff said the United States rejected amendments by Indonesia and Qatar calling for the Middle East to be free of weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. U.S. officials said Iran’s nuclear program should be the sole focus.”

Just a few questions…

  1. Why isn’t mandating a nuclear free Middle East a good thing?
  2. Wouldn’t adopting such an amendment allow Iran to comply without losing her sovereignty as a nation in the eyes of her people?
  3. Would Israel’s nuclear weapon stores be the cause of rejecting said amendment?”

United Nations complicity in war crimes: interview with Hans von Sponeck, or here
Count Hans-Christof von Sponeck, has been working for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) for 32 years. Appointed in 1998 as United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq, with the status of UN Assistant to the Secretary General, he resigned in March 2000 in protest against the sanctions, which had led the Iraqi people to misery and starvation. He speakes about the sufferings endured by the Iraqis and he appeals to the political leaders responsible for the catastrophe.

Update:
Iran, Israel, The Big Lie and The Real Threat, by Frank Scott, Information Clearing House: “Attempting to portray Iran as a nuclear menace to Israel and the world, in that order, even though it has no nuclear weapons and Israel has hundreds, is not merely a sign of dementia. It is indication of near idiocy in a society that can be repeatedly manipulated into believing such totally crackpot notions that have no foundation in the material world but exist only in a world of superstitious psycho-fantasy.”

Keeping All Options on the Table: A Roadmap to Negotiation or War?
Farideh Farhi,
Foreign Policy in Focus, March 6: ” … if the Iranian leadership thinks that negotiations and compromise on the nuclear issue will indeed lead to a breakthrough in relations with the United States and on the abandoning of its policy of weakening the Iranian regime. Without such an incentive, the hardliners in Iran will be able to run the show based on the argument that no matter how many concessions are given, American hostility will not end…”

    Hi Homie,

    Count von Sponeck was an honest man.

    That’s probably the reason why resigned.

    Just like Denis Haliday before him, he simply didn’t want to “administer a [UN] program that satisfies the definition of genocide”.

    One could argue that the UN, the White House, the Pentagon and other institutions are controlled by foreign agents such as Dov Zakheim, an ultra-orthodox Israeli rabbi turned US Assistant Secretary of Defense. .

    These people clearly hate “inferior races” such as Asians, blacks, Hispanics, Arabs and Iranians?

    You can see their (thinly) veiled ideology at work behind “300”, the latest Hollywood blockbuster to portray “Orientals” as a menacing magma threatening the integrity of Western civilization.

    “They were 300 free individuals and they stood against wave after wave of Iranian locusts.”

    Wow, what an impressive curriculum!
    Something very gloomy is going on – for instance the 2 previous posts. The 4th Reich?
    Yesterday villains look almost angelic today! 🙂
