The Assault on Iran's Right to Nuclear Energy
Former British MI6 intelligence agent Dr. John Coleman writes,
One needs to have a clear understanding of just why it is that nuclear power is so hated all over the world, and why the fake "environmentalist" movement, established and financially supported by the Club of Rome, was called upon to wage war on nuclear energy. With nuclear energy generating electricity in cheap and abundant supplies, Third World countries would gradually become independent of U.S. foreign aid and begin to assert their sovereignty. Nuclear generated electricity is THE key to bringing Third World countries out of their backward state.1
The United States and Russia "invaded Yugoslavia and seized that country's nuclear energy plant stockpiles" under this same motivation.2 Part of the globalist, criminal agenda of most Western leaders is keeping Third World nations - especially those who stray from their control mechanisms - from become independent, industrialized nations. The World Bank does so with their economic schemes, and the United Nations does with nuclear non-proliferation.
Imam Khomeini, founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979, condemned weapons of mass destruction and specifically nuclear weapons:
If they continue to make huge atomic weapons and so forth, the world may be pushed into destruction and the major loss will afflict the nations. Everybody, where he is, the writers, intellectuals and scholars and scientists throughout the world should enlighten the people of this danger, so that the masses of people will standup vis-à-vis these two powers themselves and prevent the proliferation of these arms.
According to religinous decree (Fatwa) issued by the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, nuclear weapons are considered prohibited and against the Islamic Law.2
Irani President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly made it clear that Iran is pursuing nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, which it has the right to do under the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).3
He has been backed up in these statements by Algerian Prime Minister Abdelaziz Belkhadem. “Based on the treaty," Belkhadem says, "the NPT signatories may not be deprived of their right to make peaceful use of nuclear technology."4
Uric Atynbayev, Kazakhstan’s ambassador in Tehran, has also expressed support for Iran's nuclear program, saying that Iran is opposed to the proliferation of nuclear weapons and intends to use nuclear technology only for peaceful purposes.5
Irani Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki made the point that "Countries using state-of-the-art nuclear weapons are not in a position to deprive other countries of peaceful nuclear technology."6
Kuwaiti National Security Agency chief Sheikh Ahmad Fahd Al-Sabah also said that Iran has the right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, adding, "We however oppose any use of nuclear technology for inhuman purposes in the Middle East region."
The Kuwait Times reported on June 4, 2007,
Kuwait last month formed an emergency team to prepare contingency plans for any possible outbreak of Iran-US hostilities over Tehran's nuclear drive, which Washington suspects is a cover for efforts to build the atomic bomb. Sheikh Ahmad said the preparations were "simply precautionary measures". The United States on Saturday called on the international community for stronger sanctions against Iran for refusing to suspend nuclear enrichment.7
The United Nations Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) states in Article IV,
Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with Articles I and II of this Treaty.
It even goes as far as to say,
All the Parties to the Treaty undertake to facilitate, and have the right to participate in, the fullest possible exchange of equipment, materials and scientific and technological information for the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. Parties to the Treaty in a position to do so shall also co-operate in contributing alone or together with other States or international organizations to the further development of the applications of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, especially in the territories of non-nuclear-weapon States Party to the Treaty, with due consideration for the needs of the developing areas of the world.8
The UN's own treaty reinforces Dr. Coleman's assertion that "with nuclear energy generating electricity in cheap and abundant supplies, Third World countries would gradually become independent of U.S. foreign aid and begin to assert their sovereignty." The NPT, which has been ratified by more nations (187) than any other arms treaty, actually encourages developed nations to support nuclear development in developing nations.9
"Iran is legally entitled to enrichment for civilian purposes as a signatory to the NPT," writes the Tehran Times. Iran’s ambassador to the IAEA, Ali-Asghar Soltanieh told the Times, Tehran will "not leave unanswered" any measure meant to increase the pressure on Iran and impose sanctions on the country through UN Security Council resolutions "which have no technical or legal justification."10
"Do you think the Iranian nation will beg for reaching its nuclear rights so that bullying powers will accept this?" asked Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. "No, this is not the spirit of a free and independent nation."
Iran will continue to pursue nuclear enrichment for civilian electricy, and the United States must stop pressing sanctions based on their "suspicions."
Every piece of information this writer has read in his research contains no mention of Iranian officials regarding nuclear weapons, only nuclear power for the peaceful purpose of economic development. Yet, almost every Western mainstream media report pairs the words "nuclear weapons" with the Iranian government repeatedly. The Bush administration and the broadcast media that continue to support it drive discussion of "Iran's nuclear weapons program."11
No direct evidence of a nuclear weapons program in Iran exists. The only evidence has so far been cited by the media and government is claims by the IAEA that it "is unable to certify that Iran’s program is peaceful..."
Even after three years of inspections and negotiations, several questions remain unanswered, such as the Iranian nuclear program’s connections to A.Q. Khan, the Pakistani weapons scientist who operated an international black market for nuclear technologies...
Iran has not cooperated fully with the IAEA -- Iran has refused to allow IAEA to interview key individuals and to provide complete documentation on its nuclear program...
Iran’s leaders continue to acquire the material, equipment, and expertise to produce nuclear weapons -- Schulte said that the IAEA has reported that Iran has enough uranium hexafluoride to produce 10 nuclear weapons. The IAEA also has reported that Iran has started enriching the material – a crucial step to weapons production.12
The nuclear weapons outcry is based on suspicions. It is accompanied with mistranslated media reports of President Ahmadinejad threatening Israel and accusations that the Irani government arming terrorists and insurgents in Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan. These statements are not backed up with supporting evidence, but are brief statements made on the television screen by members of the Bush adminstration and other "experts." They resemble the statements made about Iraq before the war, which have since been proven false and cited in calls for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney. They are propaganda tools being used by the establishment as they Provoke War with Iran.
For the U.S., U.N. and other powers to have any hope of controlling every nation in the world and reaching their ultimate goal of a New World Order, they must hault the industrial and economic development of Iran through its nuclear program. Iran is not declared an enemy for developing nuclear weapons, but for developing a self-sufficient economy.
Martin Luther King said, "An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." The same goes for sovereignty, as the oppression of Iran is part of a Globalist movement to remove the sovereignty of every nation in the world.
The Iranian Mission to the UN, "Looking for Leadership"
This critical letter was written to The New York Times in response to an op-ed that called for "a full-court sanctions press from the US, the European Union and Russia" against Iran for its nuclear program:
Re “Looking for Leadership“ (editorial, June 7):
Your call for a “full-court sanctions press“ on Iran for refusing to forfeit its legal right to an independent nuclear fuel cycle fully monitored by the International Atomic Energy Agency is misguided.
Iran has no nuclear weapons ambitions or programs that it would abandon under external pressure. The misguided path of illegal, coercive sanctions will only escalate the tensions and worsen the global perception of a hypocritical double standard aimed at depriving Iran of the rights enjoyed by other nations.
Fortunately, the vast majority of the world community, including the developing nations of the nonaligned movement and the member states of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, have recognized Iran’s right to peaceful nuclear technology. The US, on the other hand, has already failed a critical test of global leadership by its coercive, discriminatory policies toward Iran and the Islamic world.
Other G-8 states should not emulate the US and thus allow the misuse of international forums to perpetuate its failed approach toward such issues.
