It would seem that there is a great deal at
stake for the 150 MEK supporters in Congress. Whether it is these
congressional members who are providing Jafarzadeh, the MEK spokesman, with
aerial photos of Iran's nuclear facilities, or vice versa, the Bush
administration is having a field day with it at the UN General Assembly.
Of course, the doctored satellite images that took
America to war three years ago, proved costly. Body bags and a depleted
treasury have prompted the Pentagon to revisit its preemptive nuclear
doctrine. The justification would be saving lives – obliterating cities to
save a thousand American lives and half a billion dollars seems reasonable.
Rumsfeld is right on the ball. School children will grow up learning that
Iran had to be nuked so that the mullahs would stop sponsoring terrorists
that were going to harm Americans with their nukes 10 years down the line.
Oil was reaching $100 a barrel. We wanted to keep Alaska clean for you all.
Sadly, the mainstream media is following suit. Regrettably, there is no free
press in this society - it is simply a mouthpiece of corporations and the
government. Else, why would the speaker of a terrorist cult – the MEK, be
given a platform? And why would the facts about Iran's nuclear program be
distorted to such an extent?
Even the once reputable The Economist writes "two decades of nuclear
deception…" (September 10-16th, 2005). The uninformed author of this
article, or the ill-intentioned writer, should be reminded that Iran was
openly soliciting bids to buy reactors from different countries after
Germany, under pressure from the U.S., withheld its reactors which had been
duly paid for. In fact, in 1996, Iran filed a lawsuit against Germany's
Kraftwerk Union at the International Commerce Commission.
More importantly, as a signatory to the 1968 Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT),
the construction of a facility, even a nuclear facility, does not have to be
reported to the IAEA (Natanz is a case in point). The only stipulation is
that 180 days PRIOR to introducing any nuclear material, the NPT member has
to declare the existence of the facility. The construction of the Natanz
facility is not a violation of the NPT as the Bush administration would have
us believe, echoed by the media. The NPT does allow a member to legally
build any nuclear facility, including one for uranium enrichment, so long as
it is declared, and safeguarded by the IAEA, and is intended for peaceful
As for the revelations of Natanz, though Jafarzadeh would like to take
credit, if treason can be given credit to; it was revealed by Seymour Hersh,
the renowned journalist who exposed the My Lai massacre and the human right
abuses at Abu Gharib prison (and Afghanistan), that it was indeed Israel
that provided the MEK with the intelligence reports, many unfounded,
regarding Iran's nuclear sights.
The 150 congressional members have betrayed the trust of the American people
by bargaining with the devil, the MEK, a terrorist cult who betrayed their
