Let’s set up the geopolitical chess board for a moment. Iran is a rogue nation according to the Western world. Which basically means that they sit on a sea of oil and don’t comply with the demands of the Western-based multinational oil firms. Iran has also made strong alliances with America’s oil-thirsty quasi-enemies China and Russia, while finding a partner-in-rogue in Venezuela.
To further aggravate the West’s agenda for global dominance, Iran’s banking system is not compliant with the private international banking cartel, therefore they can’t be enslaved by debt — the preferred method of ensuring nonviolent compliance. However, the West has recently captured a banking pawn by blacklisting the Iran-owned German-based EHI Bank under the authority of economic sanctions and accusations of benefiting from “weapons proliferation.”
Oh, and you may have also heard that Iran has achieved nuclear power against the will of the West — which seems to be the only storyline we’re allowed to discuss in the mainstream media — when will they have a nuclear weapon and how, when, and what is Israel and the West going to do to stop them?
Saturday’s Associated Press release summarized the current situation which is unfolding more like a spicy espionage novel everyday with embedded spies, highly developed computer viruses, and CIA kidnapped defectors refusing to be spies and much more diabolical intrigue:
In recent weeks, Iran has announced the arrest of several nuclear spies and battled a computer worm that it says is part of a covert Western plot to derail its nuclear program. And in July, a nuclear scientist who Iran says was kidnapped by U.S. agents returned home in mysterious circumstances, with the U.S. saying he was a willing defector who was offered $5 million by the CIA but then changed his mind.
The United States and its allies have vigorously sought to slow Iran’s nuclear advances through U.N. and other sanctions out of suspicion that Tehran intends to use a civil program as cover for developing weapons. Iran denies any such aim and says it only wants to generate nuclear power.
Although Iran has always maintained that its nuclear program is for civilian energy purposes, it seems that if you’re a country who possesses natural resources like oil and wish to remain a sovereign nation, you must at least give the appearance of being capable of defending against outside threats — much like Saddam’s apparent illusiveness but actual impotence regarding Iraq’s WMD. Ultimately, the West wanted Saddam’s resources, so they just took them by force. And now, the West’s oil companies are being “awarded” with rich drilling contracts. In other words, checkmate.
The AP article also made breaking news that Iran has agreed to nuclear talks with the U.S. and other U.N security council countries:…
