Iranian president Dr. ahmadinejad in speech on Saturday exposed the hypocrisy of Obama’s pro-Israel administration: “They say they have extended a hand to Iran, but the Iranian government and nation declined to welcome that. What kind of hand did you extend toward the Iranian nation? What has changed? Did you lift sanctions? Did you stop propaganda? Did you reduce the pressure?”
Dr. Gordon Prather, who formerly worked as a nuclear weapon physicist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California, Sandia National Laboratory in New Mexico, US Department of Defence, Department of Energy and Department of the Army – wrote in Anti-War.com on September 26, 2009, under the title Enough Rope Yet?:
Bonkers Bolton’s successors and acolytes in the Obama-Biden administration had attempted to get Iran singled out by name as an example of a State not in compliance with its NPT “obligations” – and hence, ineligible to enjoy the benefits of the peaceful use of atomic energy guaranteed them by the NPT – but the Russians and Chinese objected. Why did they object? Because as they – and the vast majority of the heads of state of the Non-Aligned Movement, the Organization of the Islamic Conference, the Arab League and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization – know, it is the United States which for decades has been in outrageous non-compliance with its NPT obligations.
Clinton-Gore and Bush-Cheney – aided and abetted by The Best Congress Money Can Buy (watch video at the bottom) – have done nothing but “discriminate” against Iran in blatant violation of the NPT, the IAEA Statute and the UN Charter, itself.
Now, surely Obama is not as dumb as Dubya. Surely he realizes what we have been doing to Iran for the past twenty years because it insists on exercising its inalienable rights under the NPT and the IAEA Statute and the UN Charter is not only illegal but immoral. Yet, Obama attempted to get the UN Security Council to essentially reprise all the past injustices committed by the Council against Iran at the instigation of Bonkers Bolton.
So, contrary to what you’ve been told, the real story was not at the Security Council, but at the UN General Assembly, where Iranian and Libyan et al heads of state were reiterating certain findings and recommendations made this past July by the Presidents and Heads of State of Members of the Non-Aligned Movement, about necessary changes that need to be made, immediately, in the way the Security Council is organized and “does business.”………
