The United States and Israel, with David Cameron’s Britain slavishly following suit, have decided to form a trio to attack Iran under the dishonest and fabricated pretext that Iran is covertly developing nuclear weapons contrary to the terms of the IAEA treaty to which it is a signatory and explicitly forbids IAEA member countries with no nuclear weapons of their own from either producing or acquiring such weapons, at the same time placing a legal and binding obligation on those countries in possession of them, to be precise the United States of America, Britain, France, Russia and China that have publicly and hubristically admitted to having multiple stockpiles of these weapons and are themselves voluntary signatories to the IAEA treaty, together with the likes of India, Pakistan, Israel and allegedly North Korea that are known to have or credibly suspected of doing so, to steadily phase theirs out until there’s a wholesale prohibition on all aspects of these weapons and we’re left with a totally nuclear free world. This hasn’t happened of course, and the chief culprits who undoubtedly must shoulder the full responsibility for this are the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council: the United States of America, its lackeys Britain and France, the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China, with the United States, Britain and France in the forefront of this conspiratorial and endemic deception on their part and which quite sinisterly is directed against the rest of the world.
That’s the principle and legal prerequisites anyway of the IAEA agreement, which although strictly observed by the non-nuclear countries for a diversity of reasons, some of them quite unpalatable: for example political or economic blackmail, trade and other sanctions, veiled or even open threats to physically attack them, you name it and it’s usually directed at them these non-nuclear countries, are nevertheless callously and haughtily ignored by the nuclear club, especially the United Nations Security Council’s permanent five member countries, in the vanguard of this mendacious and dishonest conduct being the United States of America, Britain and France. So what these evidently psychotic, paranoid and bullying, nuclear-club states are doing in relation to other sovereign independent, non-nuclear countries they don’t like and particularly so in the case of Iran, would be quite laughable if it wasn’t so serious and potentially inimical to the genuine interests and welfare of the rest of the world.
For far from even contemplating giving up their nuclear weapons let alone honestly putting in position tangible and observable measures to do so, these permanent five members of the United Nations Security Council presiding over not only their own rampant immorality and dishonesty but also that of their client states Israel, India and Pakistan that despite none of them being an IAEA member, a signatory to its treaty and what’s more determinedly refuse to stomach let alone have IAEA inspections carried out on their nuclear facilities the US, Britain, France and Germany in particular together with other European and western states in a flagrant breach of the protocols governing the IAEA treaty, their own domestic as well international laws that categorically forbid them as IAEA signatory members, in addition to all other UN members countries from having any kind of nuclear collaboration with nuclear rogue states, which Israel, India and Pakistan most certainly are, continue in spite of their legal, moral and international obligations to significantly upgrade their nuclear capabilities as well as to pass this prohibited technology onto their client states.
The United States nuclear accord with India, its ongoing provision to Israel of whatever it wants in this nuclear regard together with other state of the art weaponry that additionally it gives to that country and Germany’s sale of nuclear submarines to Israel are just the tip of a colossal iceberg generated by these avaricious, inherently immoral, devious and completely revolting conspirators in what’s clearly for those who honestly want to admit this and call it what it essentially is, a perilous ocean of deception. And for these mindboggling hypocrites with their stomach-churning double standards to give a nuclear rogue state like Israel that’s illegally in possession of a vast, secret cache of what’s reliably suspected to be hundreds of nuclear weapons, courtesy of the west whose military, political and diplomatic protection it also uncritically enjoys, yet have these selfsame states as they too not only increase but also upgrade their enormous stockpiles of nuclear weapons hypocritically tell other states not in possession of any nuclear arsenals that they can’t have them and even go further to publicly threaten military attacks against countries like Iran that have publicly stated they don’t need such weapons, possess none and furthermore have no wish to, statements that these bullies suitably and dishonestly either ignore or choose not to believe regardless of what proof Iran provides to verify its claims because the Irans of this world determinedly refuse to bend the knee of servitude to them, isn’t just incredibly reprehensible, lacking all common sense and reason but also shows the magnitude of the conceit of these nuclear states’ conceit and the depth of depravity they’ll sink to, to get at any cost what they set their eyes on. At best a case of do as I say not as I do, and at its worst is morally and physically sick.
The upshot of which is that anyone even without an in-depth knowledge of what’s going on knows exactly what is behind as well as serving as the key stimulus for this upsurge of war fever by these imperialistic and colonialist-minded entities. The US, Britain and the rest of the western countries are both financially and morally bankrupt; the greedy bankers, those closely associated with the military industrial complex, and the remaining element of that 1% ruling and establishment elite that can’t be reined in by their political stooges because they’re entirely financially and politically beholden to them and therefore find themselves left with two choices, either go into a state of self-denial of what’s actually happening or as the Roman emperor Nero did, and who equally hadn’t a clue how to resolve the awful mess his country was in, carry on fiddling financially and metaphorically, so to speak, while their American Empire burns, or more appropriately implodes on itself.
At home meanwhile peaceful Anti-Wall Street and other populist protests against corporate greed and insidious political corruption continue apace; escalating in an astonishing fashion and giving momentum and cohesion to similar movements worldwide, this despite ongoing attempts by the corporate and deeply embedded western media to paint them as anarchistic; unpatriotic; naïve, easily persuaded and confused clowns; workshy rent-a-mob cartels; and even paid mercenaries, all of whom are adamantly predisposed to violence and as therefore justly entitled to be unfeelingly subjected to the brutally harsh and over the top crackdowns by violent police units at the behest of political directives which in turn emanate from the precise demands of those being protested against; notwithstanding that what violence there was has been premeditatedly stirred up by undercover police agent provocateurs.
With no viable solutions impending to get them out of the mess they’ve incompetently and greedily created and like the proverbial man in a hole completely of his own making, rather than stop his digging and properly assess his plight he stupidly carries on with it making his position much worse than it was before, these so-called leaders of the west and their coterie of sycophantic quislings, collectively too conceited to admit to their idiocy let alone make suitable amends for it, instead in utter desperation cast their eyes accusingly around looking as they do so for expedient or fabricated scapegoats of their making on whom they can pin their faults and dishonestly blame for their self-inflicted predicament.
This is nothing new; in fact it’s a well-established con trick that inveterate charlatans have, with varying degrees of success or failure, employed in the past both on an individual and a political level but always when the stakes for their personal survival are extremely high. As I said before the United States together with its British, other European Union and western political and establishment stooges are in a critical financial mess and quite perturbing and embarrassing for them as well is their reluctant and forced acknowledgment that their once unassailable, imposing domestic and international economic power with its accompanying and all pervasive global hegemony is no more; that this previous and insolent primacy isn’t only in conspicuous terminal decline but is also in a precipitate and irreversible state of free fall. And this not only scares the living daylights out of these people, a situation analogous to a brutal, merciless, mean-spirited, mendacious and malicious bully suddenly confronted with the fact that he’s not only no longer the principal bully on the block but also that there are others impatiently waiting in the wings to wrest what remaining power and influence he still has from him.
A discomforting situation on that bully’s part that predictably gives rise to a profound and pernicious fit of paranoia that everyone he runs into is out to get him; and this is exactly the identical state of affairs that his crooked, western establishment counterparts are up against as in a desperate last ditch bid largely to satisfy themselves they’re still strong and forcibly able to demonstrate this to real or imagined rivals they take to behaving like an individual with a grudge against doctors who rushed into a crowded and busy hospital’s A and E waiting room, pulls a previously concealed hand grenade from his overcoat pocket, activates it, and with his thumb on the detonating pin threatens to remove it and blow up everyone present if the list of highly unreasonable, incoherent and inexplicable demands he then spouts out, one of them being that no one other than he and his friends should under any circumstance have access to hand grenades whether or not those he’s threatening ever had or relished any intention of doing so, while either blissfully or uncaringly unmindful of the fact that should he detonate the hand grenade he’s holding he’ll almost certainly at best seriously injure or at worst kill himself as well.
This pure and simple is abhorrent blackmail regardless of whether the perpetrators of it are private persons or more common these days powerful public figures; they’re both the same category of individuals: mindless morons. The United States, the only country so far to use nuclear weapons in conflict and anger against another country, Japan said it did so in order to curtail the war and not to have used its atomic bombs in the manner it did the alternative would have been a much grimmer scenario than what actually occurred, entailing a massive US land invasion of Japan that would have caused the United States a great deal of treasure financially and the unnecessary deaths of scores of thousands more of its military personnel and those of Japan due in part to the fact that the ingrained Japanese culture of no surrender and fighting to the very last man or woman.
This was a blatant and concocted lie on the part of the United States, as Japan on the verge of a most humiliating defeat was already in surrender negotiations with the US so there was no earthly or heavenly reason for that matter for a supposedly Christian USA to embark on what it did or to wantonly and viciously obliterate Hiroshima, Nagasaki and their occupants with the accompanying long-term catastrophic and immoral costs of ensuring generational cancer among these people together with the horrendous birth, other physiological as well as psychological defects that emanated from these United States nuclear attacks, afterwards became and still to this day 66 years after the war’s end are a common characteristic among the affected Japanese population, most particularly the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
