WEB Notes: This is exactly it. Iran is not a part of the game as we have said many times. No matter the outcome of the negotiations between the US and Iran the end goal is the destruction of Iran’s government.
Source: Paul Craig Roberts | Washington’s issue with Iran has never been Iran’s nuclear energy program. The notion pushed by the neoconservatives that Iran only had a nuclear energy program (5% uranium enrichment) in order to hide a nuclear weapons program (95+% enrichment) was always a cover for Washington’s real opposition to Iran and Washington’s real agenda.
From the standpoint of Washington’s doctrine of US world hegemony, the problem with Iran is its independence. Like Iraq, Libya, Syria, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil, Argentina, Cuba, North Korea, Russia and China, Iran is not Washington’s vassal.
Washington was unwilling to admit the truth and to say that Iran was on its target list, because Iran would not submit to Washington’s will. Instead, Washington decided to create fear of Iran among the American and European peoples. Washington did this by accusing Iran of developing nuclear weapons that Iran would give to terrorists or use itself against Israel, Europe, and America. When Washington placed anti-ballistic missiles on Russia’s border, Washington lied to Russia that the purpose was to intercept (non-existent) Iranian nuclear ICBMs.
Washington’s propaganda about the threat of Iranian nukes is now many years old despite the National Intelligence Report released by all 16 US intelligent agencies that Iran abandoned more than a decade ago its interest in nuclear weapons. Washington’s propaganda has also continued with the aid of the Western media despite the fact that the International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors on the ground in Iran consistently report that there is no evidence of any diversion of enriched uranium to a weapons program. In other words, the IAEA inspectors can account for all of the enriched uranium by the perfectly legal energy program. – Read More – Paul Craig Roberts
