cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

1. Jim Jones: our support of Israel is not just a slogan


US National Security Advisor Jim Jones said Tuesday that Iran will not be allowed to evade making a decision on the nuclear deal offered by the West, noting that it will soon be made clear whether Iran intends on abiding the agreements struck in Geneva. Jones emphasized that, until then, it must be made clear that no option is being taken off the table.

According to Jones, if Iran were to transfer its uranium to another country, the amount of uranium in its stockpiles will fall below the required amount for manufacturing a nuclear weapon. He said that, to this end, the meeting in Geneva was a good start, but was still just the beginning. He emphasized that the goal of the US is to prevent Iran from obtaining “nuclear weapons”.

In his keynote speech at the J Street conference in Washington, Jones reiterated American commitment to Israel's security, saying this was not just a slogan tossed around and said that this commitment was stronger than ever under the Obama administration. He said that the US has shown its support for Israel's right to “self defense”

2. Tsipi Livni, fresh off her meeting with Bibi, says Iran is "toying with the world"

Israeli Kadima leader Tzipi Livni on Wednesday morning warned that "Iran is toying with the world," and claimed the current proposed deal between the West and Tehran may not be sufficient to ensure the Islamic republic will not achieve military nuclear capability.


According to the UN-drafted deal, Iran would ship much of its uranium to Russia and France for further enrichment, setting back the nuclear program and the time frame in which Iran could reach "breakout" capacity.

"Iran is toying with the world. The deal doesn't solve a major issue - the complete halt of uranium enrichment. There's a clear international consensus that a nuclear Iran is unacceptable," Livni said in a statement during a one-day visit in Moscow. Livni told Israel Radio that in her meetings with Russian officials, she intends to stress the risks posed by the proposed deal.

"The international and Iranian state of mind must be that all the options are on the table if an arrangement that fully prevents Iran from acquiring nuclear arms is not reached," she stressed. Livni went on to warn that the demands set by the international community must not be eroded. "We are now in the critical point in time - the offer is on the table and the powers have announced they accept the idea, but it is important to prevent erosion," she said.

3. but people, the EXTRAORDINARY danger comes not from these whack-job war-mongering Israelis and their American puppets, it comes from.....Sudan

WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama renewed sanctions on Sudan Tuesday, a week after unveiling a new policy of pressure and incentives toward the Khartoum government aimed at settling the simmering conflict.

"The crisis constituted by the actions and policies of the government of Sudan... has not been resolved," Obama said in a message to Congress about the one-year extension of sanctions.

"These actions and policies are hostile to US interests and pose a continuing unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States."

The sanctions restrict US trade with and investment in Sudan, freezes the Sudanese government assets in the United States, and bans transactions with individuals and entities linked to the conflict in Darfur.

Critics say the ICC warrant singles out weak states like Sudan, while taking a hypocritical stance towards countries like the US and Israel by ignoring worse atrocities committed by them, and by not charging American and Israeli officials with war crimes and crimes against humanity.
