Endless US Propaganda War on Iran
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
Orchestrated by US dark forces, Big Media proliferated propaganda war rages against Iran for not selling its soul to hegemon USA.
On all things Iran and other nations free from US control, Biden is Trump with a party label difference.
There's virtually no chance that any US regime will turn a page for world peace, stability, and cooperative relations with other countries -- just the opposite.
Straightaway in office, Biden continued longstanding US dirty business as usual with no end of it in prospect.
War on Iran by other means continues unchanged. Chances for improved relations with the US are virtually nil. Seeking them is futile.
In his Wednesday press conference, Blinken's State Department spokesman Price continued his war of words on Iran.
Ignoring straightaway initiated Biden regime war on Iran by other means, he defied reality with the following Big Lie, saying:
"Iran's behavior in recent weeks in months…further distance(s) itself from the JCPOA (sic).
"(W)e certainly hope to be able to pursue that pathway of diplomacy in order to resolve what we do consider to be an urgent challenge (sic)."
Let's see if I've got this straight.
The US under both right wings of its war party wages endless preemptive wars by hot and other means on invented enemies threatening no one -- including on Iran since becoming liberated from US imperial control in 1979.
In stark contrast to hegemon USA, the Islamic Republic and other nations on its hit list prioritize peace, stability, and cooperative relations with other countries.
Ignoring the above, Washington consistently and repeatedly blames other nations for lawless US actions against them.
Iran and other countries free from US control observe and fulfill their international law obligations -- including provisions of treaties and other agreements they're signatories to.
In stark contrast, the US long ago abandoned the rule of law in pursuing its endless war on humanity at home and abroad for unchallenged global dominance.
Iran isn't in breach of its international obligations. Nor are Russia, China, Syria, Venezuela, North Korea, Cuba, and other nations Washington wants transformed into pro-Western vassal states.
The US under undemocratic Dems and Republicans stands guilty as charged.
Pointing fingers at invented adversaries for its own wrongdoing fools no one.
Its unacceptable actions hasten its decline. It's impossible for peace-loving nations like Iran to engage with the US diplomatically.
Hegemons don't negotiate. They don't engage with other countries diplomatically. They demand, Washington's hammer poised to fall on nonbelievers.
The latest fake news about Iran repeats earlier debunked old news.
The CIA-linked Washington Post and other Big Media reported the following:
Citing pro-Western IAEA head Rafael Grossi, they falsely claimed that Iranian production of uranium metal violates its JCPOA obligations.
Late last year, Iran's representative to the Vienna-based international organizations Kazem Gharibabadi notified the IAEA of its intention, explaining:
"R&D activities related to the design of an improved type of fuel for the Tehran Research Reactor has started."
"Natural uranium will be used to produce uranium metal in the first stage."
Activities begun followed legislation by Iran's Parliament called Strategic Action Plan to Counter Sanctions.
It's also about safeguarding the country's national security and related interests.
What's going on has nothing to do with producing nuclear weapons.
What's well known by the IAEA, West and Big Media is ignored to maintain a steady drumbeat of anti-Iran propaganda.
WaPo defied reality by claiming that Tehran "has enough enriched uranium to make a bomb" it doesn't seek and requires uranium enriched to at least 90% purity.
At 20%, Iran is worlds away from this level.
Wall Street Journal disinformation falsely claimed that Tehran's "production of uranium metal is more clearly linked to nuclear-weapons work since it has few civilian purposes (sic)."
Iran's Foreign Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said the following last month:
Uranium metal "technology is a necessity for Iran, which has to meet its patients' demands for radio-pharmaceuticals with the best quality."
"(C)ompletely based on humanitarian and peaceful grounds," what's going on has no military applications.
Claims otherwise are bald-faced Big Lies -- an unending drumbeat of them faced by Iran that defy reality.
Whenever claims surface about pursuit of nuclear weapons by Iran, they're baseless, no credible information supporting them.
Iran's production of uranium metal is solely for non-military purposes, the legitimate right of all nations.
Yet E3 countries defied reality last month -- falsely claiming that Iran's "production of uranium metal has potentially grave military implications" -- a bald-faced Big Lie.
Iran's Foreign Ministry explained that its non-military uranium metal production applies to "design(ing) more advanced fuel for the Tehran Research Reactor dubbed silicide fuel" -- the IAEA informed of this two years ago.
In stark contrast to the US-dominated West and Israel, Iran fully complies with its international law obligations.
Yet war on the country by other means continues with no end of it in prospect.
It has nothing to do with an Iranian threat that doesn't exist, everything to do with its sovereign independence -- free from US hegemonic control.
