Iran Welcomes Back IAEA to Dispel Nuclear Weapons Allegations

The Iranian Government once again welcomed the IAEA into the country to discuss their nuclear energy program, and to dispel unfounded allegations from the West and Israel that they are pursing a nuclear weapon.

This second supplemental discussion was agreed during a meeting earlier in the month, which was described as “a good trip” by IAEA deputy director general Herman Nackaerts [1].

“The IAEA would not be scheduling another trip unless they had an expectation of progress,” says Mark Fitzpatrick, director of the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

All previous IAEA reports have confirmed that Iran is not producing uranium at anywhere near the level needed for a nuclear weapon.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad expressly told CBC News in 2010 that:  

The nuclear bomb is a fire against humanity rather than weapon for defense…Its possession is disgusting and shameful…even more shameful is the threat to use such weapons.

Despite this, politicized pressure has forced the IAEA to continually address so called “intelligence” that is clearly propaganda concocted by the West and Israel (who ironically have never cooperated over their own nuclear weapons).

The 2011 IAEA report, which was the first to really demonize Iran (although still concluded that it was not enriching weaponized uranium) suggested Iran had shown intent to pursue nuclear weapons up until 2003 [2]. Ignoring the fact that Ahmadinejad wasn’t president during that time period, the source for this information was not evidence obtained independently by inspectors, but a dubious laptop obtained by the CIA containing supposed incriminating documents that were…wait for it…written in English, with nonsensical graphs produced in Microsoft PowerPoint [3]. The laptop was given to the CIA by the People’s Mujahedin of Iran, an opposition group which now has close ties to the CIA and Mossad [4].

The reason this “evidence” didn’t come out until the 2011 report was because the CIA refused the IAEA access to it. Probably because they had yet to find a way to window dress it [5].

Although the mainstream media ran with headlines claiming Iran must be building nuclear weapons because inspectors obtained satellite pictures of a large steel container for carrying out tests with high explosives that could be used in nuclear weapons, the report comes to no such conclusion. The key word is could. The facility could just as easily be used for non-nuclear tests; without any other evidence the claim is useless. Are we to believe the US and Israel don’t have explosive testing facilities? Not only for weapons development but for protection?

The evil Krytron switches allegedly used for nuclear devices, also happen to be used in many industrial applications including photocopier machines! [6]

At this point it would be worth remembering the “sexed-up” September dossier, a piece of propaganda about Iraq’s nonexistent WMD’s used as justification for the Iraq war.

The West and Israel have no credibility and, more importantly, no evidence; yet the IAEA go in yet again, allowing the mainstream media to spin the headlines and continue the agenda.
