Sophia has provided a translation of Iran's previous foriegn minister with Le Monde. She draws attention to Velayati's emphasis on the role of Iran in mediation of peace and stability in the region. [and makes wonder AGAIN: who doesn't want peace and stability in the ME?]
Sophia's comments need to be on the front page of any journal
Well, there is a total blackout on the interviews with velayati in the US and UK press. Be very careful at the narrative that will be laid out in the coming days:
1-IAEA confirms Iran is continuing Uranium Enrichment.
No news paper would say that this enrichement is perfectly legitimate by international treaties but is being rendered illegitimate by the UN resolutions that are being crafted now outside any negotiations. So people will only have part of the truth. This is disinformation.
-2 The US will proclaim that the Un security council must vote more and more restrictive sanctions because Iran is not complying.
Complying to what ? Not to international law but to US demands.
-3 There will be escalation and nobody knows to which level the neocons are out of touch. because if theey go to war against Iran it is a regional deflagration...But they will say that it is Iran's fault.
It will end up, sanctions or/and war, to this simple truth: the US fabricates problems and sets out to solve them. In other words, US deconstructs international law, replace it with its own law and ask people to abide by it and if they don't then it goes to war.
Meawhile, Bush is meeting in Washington former militia Lebanese leader and war criminal Walid Jumblatt and asking the new UN secretary general to shake hands with him and the next visitor will be Samir Gea'gea who sent 15 years in prison for political assassinations and was released by amnesty and with the financial and political support of neocons' new puppet in lebanon, Saad Hariri...
The Fanonite: Anyone can go to Baghdad; Real men go to Tehran!
Fanonite's great article about who is lobbying for war. [answers my question to some extent about who wants the crisis escalated, and why]
View From the Moon: Jewish antisemites?
Flemings study of Jewish attack on Jewish critics of Israel. [very interesting quotations!]
