Ehud Olmert dangerous intentions to save his political career.

Posted by QB on June 6, 2008

The Deputy Prime Minister is threatening Iran will be attack if they did not stop their nuclear program. Ehud Olmert also wanted to stop nuclear program by all means possible. This would be another mistake by this corrupt politician to save his political career like his decision to attack Lebanon. The Lebanon invasion, which could have been easily avoided was complete disaster for Israel. Ehud Olmert visited White House yesterday trying to get Bush blessing on Iran attack.

There are more disadvantages than any advantages looking at the present Middle East situation. Israel is engaged in peace talks with Syria with Turkey assistance will be stopped, Hezbollah start firing missiles across Israeli border, Syria will support Iran, Iraq situation will become more violent, Al Qaeda will get fresh reason to create hatred against Israel and USA.

Ehud Olmert is not in a position to comment any other mistake. He might survive the corruption charges but it will be impossible to hold on to power after another fail war.

John McCain – Barak Obama foreign policy.

Posted by QB on May 20, 2008

This is what John McCain foreign policy adviser said on Situation Room talking to Wolf Blitzer. The interview was so confusing that it was hard for me to determine what he is saying. Lehman lies very well stick with majority of Americans who will believe his lies just like CNN BBC propaganda that Ahmadinejad wanted to destroy Israel. Wolf Blitzer is on Zionist mission to promote lies for ground work for Iran invasion. The same propaganda campaign which lead to Iraq invasion, lies lies lies. The truth is that Al Qaeda and Iran can’t be allies because of their sectarian differences. Lehman lies will spread among the ignorant voters as truth voting for this old man John McCain, who is not a straight talking maverick but a liar crocked politician.

John McCain and Barack Obama are clearly going after each other with increasing vigor when it comes to foreign policy, specifically policy towards Iran. Let’s talk about that and more. John Lehman is joining us. He’s one of the foreign policy advisers to John McCain, a former secretary of the navy, 9/11 commissioner.

JOHN LEHMAN, MCCAIN FOREIGN POLICY ADVISER: Thanks very much for coming in, Mr. Secretary.

Pleasure to be here.

BLITZER: All right. Here’s a clip of what Obama is saying about McCain and we’ll talk about it. Listen to this.

SEN. BARACK OBAMA (D), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: The reason Iran is so much more powerful now than it was a few years ago is because of the Bush/McCain policy of fighting an endless war in Iraq and refusing to pursue direct diplomacy with Iran. They’re the ones who have not dealt with Iran wisely.

BLITZER: All right. Pretty serious accusation from Barack Obama. You want to respond?

LEHMAN: Well, you know, I think he doesn’t understand what the nature of summitry is all about. You don’t go and meet with the head of state until you have something very clear to say. You’ve either got to have a carrot or a stick. We know what Iran’s intentions are. We know they’ve killed a lot of Americans in Beirut and Saudi Arabia and now in Iraq. They trained some of the 9/11 conspirators. They gave them free passage to al Qaeda. What are you going to say if you go to a summit with them? Are you going to say either you stop killing Americans and supporting jihad around the world or we’re going to do something to you? Or do you say, we’ll give you this concession if you please stop being mean to us? That’s a very naive point of view.

BLITZER: Let me ask you, when McCain says that his policies, Obama’s policies meeting with an Iranian leader without preconditions seriously deficient, deficient a strong word, what does he mean by that?

LEHMAN: I think he means that we’ve seen what happens when new presidents go without an agenda to meet with — with adversaries. Senator Obama used the example of President Kennedy meeting with Khrushchev. That was a catastrophe. All historians now see that was a huge mistake to go without an agenda, a clear agenda.

BLITZER: What Senator Obama says, excuse me for interrupting, he says there would be no preconditions at the actual summit meeting but there would be a lot of advance work, a lot of preparations going into the meeting. What’s wrong with that? Why not have the lower level preparations to make sure everybody knows what’s going on but then when you go in, there’s no commitment in advance for preconditions?

LEHMAN: Well, obviously there has got to be preparations. But the point is what deal are you going to make? Are you going to — are you going to just sit down and say, OK, I’m prepared, I know all the bad things you’ve done and can’t we just be friends?

BLITZER: The U.S. meets — the Bush administration has had several meetings with Iran going back to right after 9/11.

LEHMAN: Sure. And we would continue to have discussions and — and very intense communication. But to bring the president in to give the dignity of the presidential office to a meeting with an extremist like Ahmadinejad without a clear deal being pre-negotiated would be a huge mistake.

BLITZER: Would John McCain as president, Secretary Lehman, do anything differently toward Iran or, for that matter, the war in Iraq right now than what President Bush is doing?

LEHMAN: I think very definitely.

BLITZER: Give us a few examples. First of all, how would he deal differently with Iran than the way President Bush is dealing?

LEHMAN: First of all, you have to look at the history of this. We’ve been sitting by and watching Hezbollah supported by the government of Iran blow up our marines in Beirut.

BLITZER: That was back in ’83.

LEHMAN: Right. Then a few years later blow up our Air Force people in Saudi Arabia and then to give training to al Qaeda prior to 9/11 and now to be providing these weapons to kill Americans with these shape charges, providing them to enemies both Shiite and Sunni.

BLITZER: What would he be doing differently towards Iran if he were president as opposed to President Bush?

LEHMAN: Well, I think what you’d see is a much more comprehensive overview of how everything fits together. And not treat everything as episodic. He would certainly not allow Iran to get off Scott free. That doesn’t mean —

BLITZER: He would have a more robust military strategy against Iran than President Bush? Is that what you’re suggesting?

LEHMAN: He would have a fully integrated strategy in which the military options like blockade and other options short of an invasion or a bombing attack would be integrated with the diplomacy in a larger picture?

BLITZER: Isn’t that going to scare a lot of voters out there who think John McCain might be getting ready for another military confrontation with Iran right now?

LEHMAN: No. Because he’s made it clear he’s not advocating an attack on Iran. He’s advocating treating them with the full range of an integrated policy that takes into view exactly what the whole picture in the Middle East is. And not allow them to kill Americans without paying a price. That doesn’t necessarily mean a military attack at all. We have plenty of levers beyond that. And it would be a return to fully integrated foreign policy and national security policy, which we haven’t seen for 15 years.

BLITZER: All right. Secretary Lehman, thanks very much for coming in. Let’s continue this conversation down the road.
Source : CNN Situation Room

Lehman, McCain foreign policy adviser, tried to link Iran to Al Qaeda, linked Iran to 9/11 which are new baseless allegations. There is no proof of Iran was anyway involved in 9/11 attacks like Iraq had nothing to do with that attack. Iran is not training Al Qaeda. Lehman get away easily because Wolf Blitzer did accepted all his allegations without correcting him. Wolf Blitzer Lou Dobbs Aaron Brown Paula Zahn all promoted the Iraq invasion and it look like they want US to attack Iran. These SOBs wants the US troops out of Iraq which proved to be disaster don’t know that it will be the worst disaster for US military and economy if they open another war front.
The following is Barak Obama adviser transcript.

Joining us now to discuss this and more, Obama’s senior foreign policy adviser, the former Assistant Secretary of State, National Security Council official Dr. Susan Rice.

Thanks for coming in, Susan.


BLITZER: All right. I will play you a little clip of what McCain said today. And then we will discuss. Listen to this.


MCCAIN: Senator Obama has declared and repeatedly reaffirmed his intention to meet the president of Iran without any preconditions, likening it to meetings between former American presidents and the leaders of the Soviet Union. Such a statement betrays the depth of Senator Obama’s inexperience and reckless judgment.


BLITZER: All right.

I want you to respond, but remember, when — when Senator Obama made that suggestion at one of the debates, even Hillary Clinton said it was naive, not a good idea. Joe Biden disagreed. John Edwards did.

How does Senator Obama defend that decision to meet without preconditions with a leader like Ahmadinejad?

RICE: Well, first of all, he said he would meet with the appropriate Iranian leaders. He hasn’t named who that leader will be. It may in fact be that, by the middle next of year, Ahmadinejad is long gone. There will be elections in Iran.

BLITZER: So, let’s say there is a new leader.


RICE: But he said Iranian leaders.

BLITZER: But the words “without preconditions…”

RICE: Yes. Let’s talk about that.

The Bush administration and John McCain have for eight years taken the view that we should not deal directly with the Iranians unless and until they meet all of our conditions, meaning suspending their nuclear program. So, in effect, we want them to do everything that we would aim to achieve in negotiations…

BLITZER: But the precondition they put was for the direct dialogue over nuclear issues, they have to stop enriching uranium.

RICE: Right.

BLITZER: That’s the condition they put.

RICE: Before we will talk to them about their nuclear problem, they have to suspend their nuclear problem. That counterproductive precondition…

BLITZER: And, so, what would you do differently?

RICE: Is to talk to the Iranians.

BLITZER: At the highest level, president to president?

RICE: Can I…

BLITZER: Please.

RICE: Please. Thank you.

What Barack Obama has said is, with due preparation, after appropriate diplomatic contacts at lower levels, when it is appropriate time that serves our interests, he is willing to meet with Iranian leaders. He is not prepared to put preconditions on those meetings, like the Bush administration has, demanding that the Iranians do exactly what we seek to compel them to do before we even sit down.

That is naive. John McCain has backed a policy, Wolf, by the Bush administration that has made us less safe. It is Iran that is stronger today as a result of our invasion of Iraq and our failure to…


BLITZER: Because I believe the question at that debate is, would you be willing to meet during your first year of your presidency without preconditions with leaders in Iran, or North Korea, or Venezuela, Syria, something along those lines.

RICE: He said he would be willing. It doesn’t mean that he will meet all of those leaders. It doesn’t mean he will meet them all in the first year. What he will do, Wolf, is end the foolish and dangerous Bush policy of assuming that by dealing with our adversaries, we’re giving them some gift. Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon all understood, with respect to the Soviet Union and communist China, that we can advance our interests through principled strong negotiations. It’s only in the Bush administration that…

BLITZER: So, let’s be precise, because what they criticize Barack Obama, not only John McCain, but others, for suggesting that he would meet without preconditions with Ahmadinejad, who only last week on Israel’s 60th anniversary called Israel a stinking corpse. The question that they ask is, what is Barack Obama going to talk with him about?


RICE: Well, first of all, as I said, it will be the appropriate Iranian leadership at the appropriate time, not necessarily Ahmadinejad.

Secondly, we will talk to them about the issues that we’re most concerned about, their nuclear program, their support for terrorism, the threat they pose to Israel, their nefarious actions in the region, including in Iraq.

The point is to use a combination of serious pressure and sanctions and engagement to see if we can move them to a better place. The Bush administration’s approach is to refuse to negotiate. And what has that left us with, Wolf? An Iran whose nuclear program is steaming full speed ahead, Iran who is supporting Hamas and Hezbollah, who are stronger in the region, Iran who is more influential in Iraq than it’s ever been.


BLITZER: Here’s the other criticism that they level at — this kind of summit meeting between a president of the United States and a leader of Iran would only add to the prestige of a tyrant like this and making it easier for him to go and do his dirty deeds.

RICE: Well, first of all, you don’t go straight to a high-level presidential meeting. You do the preparation that’s necessary.

It’s not about prestige, Wolf. It’s about, what does the United States need to advance our national security interests and that of our ally Israel? The policy of the Bush administration backed by John McCain was to invade Iraq. That has left us less safe. It’s made Israel more vulnerable. It’s made Hamas and Hezbollah more powerful. It’s made Iran more powerful while it pursues its nuclear program.

That is a very dangerous, failed policy. The alternative is to withdraw responsibly from Iraq and deal with Iran from a position of strength. The alternative is they continue full steam ahead on their nuclear program. And that doesn’t serve our interest.

(CROSSTALK) BLITZER: And just to clear up, there’s no hard and fast commitment he would in fact if he were president meet in that first year with any of these leaders?

RICE: He said he’s willing to meet with these leaders, obviously, after preparation and at the appropriate time and when and as it serves our interests.

These are distortions, Wolf, that John McCain has found convenient because he knows that, if the American people are allowed to focus on his failed policies and that of George Bush, they won’t have a chance in this election. It’s all politics. And they continue to distort Barack Obama’s words and his intentions.

BLITZER: Secretary Rice, thanks for coming in.

Susan Rice was very rudely interrupted by Wolf whenever she try to explain Barak Obama foreign policy. Barak Obama foreign policy is very much understandable than the confused John McCain policy.

Iran Nuclear Program. US and Europe on confrontation course.

Posted by QB on November 28, 2007

The IRNA reported that Britain France Germany see that Iran is co-operating with IAEA on nuclear inspections but these countries still insist to impose tougher sanctions. The British Prime Minister wanted to impose tougher sanctions with the same old claim that Iran is building nuclear weapons. The France President and German Chancellor wanted the tougher sanctions as well and urging Russia China to co-operate.

This does not make sense, how the morons leaders of Britain France Germany reached to the conclusion that Iran is building nuclear weapons because IAEA did not find any evidence of Iran secret nuclear program and they have issued very positive report on inspections. The Bush regime still accuse Iran of interference in Iraq without providing the proof. Iraq Shiite leader Abdel Aziz al-Hakim dismissed US claims by saying that Iran is the friends of Iraqi people and the US government did not provided any solid proof of Iran’s interference in Iraq. 

The problem is that Bush the mentally retarded person is incharge of US military and WMD who might make another mistake of attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities. Then there are plenty of Democrats and Republicans Presidential hopeful who are trying to portray themselves tougher than Bush on Iran promising to use limited nuclear weapons to make sure that Iran will not get the nuclear weapons. This is all madness, when people ignore the facts and escalate the issue for political reasons. The US might make another blunder of attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities to please Zionists Israelis and Evangelicals which will make the whole Middle East the battle ground.

Iran Nuclear Program and IAEA Diplomacy.

Posted by QB on November 23, 2007

The Iran Nuclear Program is still an issue because IAEA inability to come to conclusive decision. IAEA did reported Iran’s co-operation but also added that Iran might have secret nuclear weapon program putting restrictions on UN inspectors for two years, the IAEA is trying to please the US and its allies with creating doubts. The IAEA is free to do the inspections and come up with the conclusive answer otherwise this issue will become the next excuse for another bloody destructive war.

The Saddam Hussein government did co-operated with IAEA by allowing them to inspect all their suspected sites without notice and the UN agency did not find any active nuclear or chemical weapons program in Iraq. The IAEA report was diplomatic saying that they did not find any active nuclear program in Iraq but also added that they still have questions related to chemical inventory. The Saddam Hussein Iraqi government did provide them the documentation that they have destroyed these chemicals. The Bush regime used UN ambiguous report, spin it for their political purposes claiming that Saddam Hussein is dangerous for US and Israel who is not co-operating with IAEA and US will destroy the WMD by force.

“The report gives a clean bill of health on Iran’s nuclear activities for the past 20 years. With ambiguities removed on the basis of this report, there remains no legal reasons for discussions about Iran at the U.N. Security Council,” the official IRNA news agency quoted Mohammed Saeedi as saying.

The IAEA report on Iran’s Nuclear Program is very much similar to Iraq, which Bush regime can use to air strike the Nuclear facilities, if the US government go to that limit of stupidity. The IAEA inspectors are in Iran and they can keep inspecting any Iranian sites which they believe are suspicious and come up clear report that Iran Nuclear Program is according to NPT, failed in doing so will start another useless war. The IAEA must not get involved in too much politics diplomacy trying to please both sides, honestly report what they have found and clearly tell the world what they did not find. They had no proof of Iran’s secret Nuclear Program so why make it a issue.

Iran Nuclear Program and Israel’s False Allegations against ElBaradei.

Posted by QB on November 6, 2007

The Israel Foreign Minister attacking IAEA ElBaradei is an indication that they want US to attack Iran. The allegations made by Israel Foreign Minister are not based on any hard evidence so they are lies. The purpose of these allegations is summarized as follows:

  • Creating fear amoung ignorant Americans.
  • Providing propaganda material for CNN and other mainstream media.
  • Get more support of Evanglicals who can put pressure on US government to take Military action against Iran.
  • Israel strong lobby to start their campaign to convince legislator Military action against Iran.
  • Bush regime is already inclined to attack Iran now have the new propaganda material to brainwash Americans.

The US and Israel government are the main reason for present violent situation in Middle East, any futher escalation of conflict will hurt US as well as Israel beyond their expectations and imaginations. Bush regime consists of schizophrenic maniacs who believe that Iran nuclear weapons will be threat for the world. Bush regime also believe that Pakistan nuclear weapons are real threat for US fearing that will fall into the hands of terrorists. These fears are refelect their schizophrenic approach rather than based on facts. Iran is cooperating with IAEA and it was reported by FARS Iranian news agency that their last meeting was successful, IAEA was satisfied with the meeting find no evidence of Iran’s hidden nuclear program, on the other hand Pakistan nuclear weapons are very well protected by strong Military has no chances of falling into the hands of terrorists. We the people of the world fear US and Israel stockpile of nuclear weapons which can blowup the whole world and these weapons are in the hands of mentally disabled Presidents of these countries.

Foreign Ministry Director-General Aharon Abramovich on Monday accused the International Atomic Energy Agency of thwarting the international efforts against Iran’s nuclear program.“Instead of contributing to the international efforts against Iran, the IAEA is acting as an obstructive element, whose opinions serve as an excuse for countries to refrain from joining the efforts against Tehran,” Abramovich said during a discussion of the Iranian issue at the Saban Forum.Israeli sources explained that ElBaradei was using caution in his criticism of Iran, after being the one who had warned against the war in Iraq, claiming that it did not possess weapons of mass destruction.“Now he is using the Iranian issue as an outlet for his anger,” a senior source at the Foreign Ministry said.Diplomatic sources in Jerusalem clarified that Abramovich’s remarks were the result of ElBaradei’s actions, which prevent the world from forming a united international front against Iran.According to the sources, the process of presenting questions to Tehran by the IAEA is taking too long and is creating a sense of activity, but is actually a process of “foot-dragging” which enables the Iranians to move forward. Diplomatic sources added that ElBaradei himself had a tendency of “wrapping the agency inspectors’ professional report with an introduction and summary remarks which create a political ‘spin’.”

The sources presented as an example one of the IAEA’s recent reports, submitted in February, in which the inspectors ruled that Iran did not provide information on its centrifuges and failed to explain where it got them from. Source: Y Net.

Robert Gates is in China begging to support more UN sanctions on Iran without getting any commitment from Chinese government.

Here comes fear mongering from Republican Presidential morons, the same old threat of Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal falling into the hands of radical Islamist groups, should President Pervez Musharraf’s government eventually fall. The world will be more at risk if any of the Presidential candidate win 2008 elections, there is no possibility of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons falling in the hands of terrorists. Pakistan voters are just like American voters, IGNORANT, that they will vote for corrupt Benazir Bhutto, corrupt Nawaz Sharif in two provinces Sindh and Punjab, whoever win the majority of National Assembly seats in Punjab will form the federal government. The other two provinces North West Frontier Province and Baluchistan where the religious parties win the majority of Provincial Assembly seats. This means the Pakistan four provinces will be divided equally between moderates and religious parties with the chance of moderate to have control of federal government. The religious parties popularity in two provinces are due to rising anti Americanism among the population, where Osama Bin Laden Mullah Omar are way too popular than Musharraf Bush Benazir and I blame this on Bush stupidity.

The Zionist propaganda and lies will again drag US into another bloody war with Iran. IAEA does not have any information about Iran nuclear weapons program which is based on their inspection and intelligence but the Zionists keep spreading lies and propaganda against Iran.

Iran could procure nuclear weapons by 2009, a top Israeli intelligence analyst said.Brig. Gen. Yossi Baidatz, chief analyst for Israel’s military intelligence, told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Tuesday that if Iran’s nuclear program goes unchecked, it could produce warheads by the end of 2009 or the beginning of 2010.

Western powers believe Iran is two or three years further away from nuclear bomb-making capability.

Baidatz also said that the hard-line regime of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad looks strong despite its unpopularity at home and foreign pressure to abandon its atomic ambitions.

Bush determined to invade Iran.

Posted by QB on November 1, 2007

The Bush regime is busy building up case to invade Iran from the very beginning of Iraq invasion and occupation. The Bush regime declared victory in Afghanistan and Iraq when Taliban left Kabul and Saddam Hussein went into hiding too soon expecting smooth occupation of these two countries. The Americans did not understand my point of view when I said that this is not victory, this is actually the beginning of very long bloody battle ahead in Afghanistan and Iraq. The resistance in Afghanistan and Iraq took few months in getting organized and stated their attacks on occupation military. These resistance groups were called “terrorists”, “people who hate freedom and democracy”, “dead enders”, “Saddam Hussein loyalists” by Bush and Dick instead of accepting the truth that they are the groups who are resisting the illegal criminal occupation of their countries. The vast majority of politicians Republicans as well as Democrats believe what Bush regime was saying as they don’t have the courage wisdom and intelligence to tell the truth, all because Afghanistan, Iraq wars had the over 70% support of American people. When resistance keep getting strong Bush regime started blaming Pakistan supporting Taliban and Iran get the blame for all Iraq violence. The Bush regime never admitted that it was their stupid plan which put US into such a big mess, it was Rumsfeld, Wofowitz stupid assumption that US troops will be greeted as liberators with flowers by Iraqis and the war will only cost 50 billion dollars, the Iraq occupation will be financed with Iraq Oil export.

That is now all history, the present day situation towards Iran is very similar to pre Iraq invasion, lies are broadcast by CNN and all mainstream news networks, Iran nuclear issue is over blown ignoring the facts, US military and Bush regime blaming Iran for Iran creating violence in Iraq, and the biggest propaganda lie spread by CNN and all mainstream media that Iran is threat for Israel, Ahmadinejad statement is completely taken out of context where he called the elimination of current government to elimination of Israel.

The Bush regime insists to have all option open including military attack which is supported strongly by all front runners Presidential candidates of both parties Democrats and Republicans. The US legislators are so stupid that they pass non binding resolution declaring Iran Revolutionary Guards as foreign terrorist organization with huge majority of 77 votes in Senate and they don’t have 60 votes to override Bush veto of Children Health Care bill, stem cell research bill, which are more important issues than passing non binding resolutions.

The other important figure in US politics is Osama Bin Laden and 9/11, which is very big issue with the conservative Republicans. All the Republicans are running on platform to fight Osama Bin Laden “terrorists” by keeping Iraq Afghanistan under permanent occupation, and than there are Democrats who are trying to prove to Americans that they are more tough on Osama Bin Laden “terrorists” with promising to use limited nuclear weapons in Iran, US troops incursion into Pakistan North Frontier Province.

There is one Iranian who very correctly pointed out that 52% Americans support attack to prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons, he was right, I had the old polls.

Amid the political parrying, a Zogby poll released this week showed a slim majority of the American public would support an attack to prevent Iran from building a nuclear weapon. Some 52 percent said they were either somewhat or very supportive, while close to 42% said they were not very or not at all supportive. The poll of 1,028 likely voters has a 3 percentage points margin of error.

The Head of Iran Revolutionary Guard Corp Mohammad Ali Jafari warned US against invading Iran, promising to strike back with crushing response. He also predicted that Iran will be worst quagmire for US than Iraq and Afghanistan.

The front runner Presidential candidates Hilary Clinton, Barak Obama, John Edwards, Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, John McCain are promising to attack Iran to stop them from building nuclear weapon, which according to them will make the world one happy peaceful family. The Iran if attacked will respond aggressively to defend their country and honor, they will be happy to die for what they believe is their right to develop peaceful nuclear program for energy purposes. The war will not be restricted to Iran and US, if attacked, it will cover the whole region, Iranians will hit the US military bases in Iraq, Afghanistan, Qatar, Kuwait, UAE which is US Naval base, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia.

The war will weaken US allies Saudi Arabia, Jordan, UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain governments, which will benefit the opposition groups to gain control by revolution, if there are any such groups exists in these countries.

Dennis Kucinich join Hugo Chavez believe Bush is Mental Patient.

Posted by QB on October 31, 2007

Dennis Kucinich join Hugo Chavez by suspecting Bush mental health on Iran.

I seriously believe we have to start asking questions about his mental health,” Kucinich, a quirky, long-shot candidate in the race for his party’s presidential nomination in the November, 2008 election. “There’s something wrong. He does not seem to understand his words have real impact.”He told The Inquirer he did not believe his remarks about Bush’s mental stability were irresponsible.“You cannot be a president of the United States who’s wanton in his expression of violence,” Kucinich said. “There’s a lot of people who need care. He might be one of them. If there isn’t something wrong with him, then there’s something wrong with us. This, to me, is a very serious question.”

Dennis Kucinich and Hugo Chavez come to the right conclusion. Bush infact has mental problem which are the result of his drug addictions and alcoholism. Bush must be examine by the international panel of doctors to determine his mental health. Bush must be immediately be removed from office if found mentally unstable. Bush is dangerous for the world to continue his remaining term.

Presidential Race 2008. Democrats and Republicans front runners are all corrupt politicians.

Posted by QB on October 30, 2007

The front runners of both US parties Democrats and Republicans are corrupt politicians who are not very different than Bush. They are expert in spinning the issues, they are liars, they are deceptive, their leadership skills are mainstream print and electronic media gimmick. The mainstream print media and electronic media give exposure to front runners of both parties and the benefit of doing is that they will be the ones getting the campaign advertisements of these candidates during the primaries worth tens of millions of dollars. The US politics is a big business, the projected money spend for next election is 4 billion dollars.

Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Hilary Clinton, Barak Obama, John Edwards are all liars using misinformation to get the votes. Bush and Dick want to bomb Iran so do all these front runner Presidential candidates, with the common stupid assumption that Iran will the the threat for US and Israel security. These front runners, if honestly believe this, than they are the most stupid people on earth, who have no intelligence to analyze the Iran nuclear issue. The fact. which is ignored by these moron front runner politicians, is that Iran if develop few nuclear bombs will not be threat to Israel, because they have stockpile of nuclear, biological chemical weapons, with bunker busting cluster bombs which can blow up whole Middle East in minutes. The other fact, which these front runner ignore that Iran does not have that long range missiles which can reach US. The Iran, insists that their nuclear program is for peaceful energy purpose so let them do what they are doing under UN inspections. IAEA does not have any proof that Iranians has any hidden or secret nuclear program. IAEA also reported that uranium enrichment is low grade which can’t be used to develop nuclear weapons. The truth is that Iran is not threat for Israel or US, it is Israel and US who are threat to world peace.

The American voters don’t know the power of their votes, they go and cast their vote for the biggest liar and hypocrite without actually knowing the facts about the issues. The Americans if wanted to continue this “war on terror” in Afghanistan fighting Taliban for another twenty years, keep Iraq under US occupation, want to invade Iran, send US troops into Pakistan NWFP region than go ahead vote for Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama, John Edwards because they all have the similar policies of Bush regime aggression which will not bring peace and stability on earth.

The American voters if wanted to change the direction of country than they must vote for Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul both candidates are honest truth speaking intelligent politicians who will bring peace and stability to the world. Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul are saying what is right not like the front runners who are saying what ignorant voters wanted to hear. The real democratic revolution recently is seen in Bolivia, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Venezuela with voters rejecting the corrupt mainstream politicians, Americans must learn lesson from these countries voters.

Iran condemn new sanctions. ElBaradei interview with Wolf Blitzer.

Posted by QB on October 29, 2007

“”The United State’s newly-unveiled illegal measures against Iranian nationals as well as military, financial and other institutions once again disclosed the U.S. unilateral approach which is doomed to failure due to its illegitimate and hegemonic nature,”” the statement released Saturday said, in reaction to a new set of sanctions against the Islamic Republic announced by the U.S. on Oct. 25, 2007.“”Without doubt, labeling independent countries and their national institutions as terrorist runs counter to the most basic principles of international law, international relations and the UN Charter,”” it added.“”It is clear that despite the massive misleading political and propaganda campaign organized by the U.S. and its proxies, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) is a crucial component of Iran’s military force. In fact, by sanctioning the popular IRGC, the U.S. is targeting the entire Iranian nation,”” the statement noted.“”As recurrently reaffirmed by the International Atomic Energy Agency officials and reports, Iran’s nuclear program is completely peaceful and there is no evidence of the slightest diversion from a peaceful path. The U.S. has failed to provide any evidence to substantiate its ‘proliferation concerns’ over Iran’s nuclear activities.””

The dispute between the United States and Iran ratcheted up even higher this past week with the Bush administration’s tough new sanctions against Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps and three key Iranian banks. The goal, to try to deter Iran from building nuclear arms, something Iran denies it is even pursuing.

Joining us now from New York for a “Late Edition” exclusive is the man who’s been monitoring Iran’s moves on the nuclear front. Mohamed ElBaradei is the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency. Dr. ElBaradei, thanks very much for joining us. Welcome back to “Late Edition.”

MOHAMED ELBARADEI, IAEA DIRECTOR-GENERAL: Thank you very much, Wolf, for having me.

BLITZER: I want you to respond to this overall threat that the U.S. perceives comes from Iran, and listen to how President Bush the other day phrased it. Listen to this.


PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: If you’re interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them from having the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon. I take the threat of Iran with a nuclear weapon very seriously.


BLITZER: Is Iran, Dr. ElBaradei, building a nuclear bomb?

ELBARADEI: Well, Wolf, let me say three facts to put the Iranian nuclear issue in proper perspective. We are not talking about Iran today having a nuclear weapon as Secretary Rice said recently. Second, even if Iran were to be working on nuclear weapons, according to John Negroponte and Mike McConnell, they at least few years away from having such weapon.

Thirdly, what we are doing right now is, through the IAEA and the European Union, Javier Solana, is to try to make sure that we control the nascent enrichment capability in Iraq and create the conditions for Iran and the European, particularly the U.S., to go into negotiation.

So we are not talking about Iran having today a nuclear weapon. We are trying to make sure that the future intention of Iran is peaceful, and that’s really what we are talking about. Risk assessment of possible future intention by Iran, if they have the technology to develop nuclear weapon.

I say that because at this stage we need to continue to work through creative diplomacy. We have the time. Because I don’t see any other solution, Wolf, except through diplomacy and inspection.

BLITZER: Well, what about the — whether it is a few years down the road before they actually have a nuclear bomb, do you believe there is a clandestine, secret nuclear weapons program right now under way in Iran?

ELBARADEI: We haven’t seen any concrete evidence to that effect, Wolf. We haven’t received any information there is a parallel ongoing active nuclear weapon program.

What we have seen in the past that certain procurements that have not been reported to us, certain experiments. And that’s where we are working now with Iran to clarify the past and the present, but I have not received any information that there is a complete active nuclear weapon program going on right now.

And I think what — if you hear carefully what is being said about Iran, that Iran might — we suspect that Iran might have the intention, but I don’t think I have seen anybody saying Iran today is working actively on a weapon program. And if there are such information, I would be very happy to receive it and go for it — after it.

BLITZER: So, what you’re saying is the United States government has not provided you hard intelligence evidence that Iran is secretly working on this kind of nuclear weapons program.

ELBARADEI: We have information that there has been maybe some studies about possible weaponization. But we are looking into these alleged studies with Iran right now, and that’s why we have said that we cannot give Iran a pass right now, because there is still a lot of question marks.

But have we seen Iran having the nuclear material that can readily be used into a weapon? No. Have we seen an active weaponization program? No.

So there is a concern, but there is also time to clarify these concerns. And we should remember, Wolf, that this has — it’s a question of distrust that has been going on for over — almost half a decade. So, the earlier we go to the negotiation mode between the U.S. and Iran, the better we can resolve the issue.

Sanctions have been applied and sanctions probably will continue to be applied, but as I have said before, and I think everybody agrees that sanctions alone will not lead to a durable solution. Even the security council is saying a durable solution has to be through a comprehensive package deal with Iran, where we discuss not only the nuclear issue but regional security, trade, technology. So, the earlier we use creative diplomacy to move toward such initiation of negotiation, the best for everybody.

BLITZER: Well, let me be precise, because what U.S. officials increasingly are saying now — and you certainly hear this from the Israelis as well — is there is a difference between actually having a nuclear bomb or having the knowledge to build a nuclear bomb.

And they’re increasingly speaking about this threshold of once they have the capability of doing it, it is almost like actually doing it. Do you differentiate between those two points?

ELBARADEI: I do, Wolf. Because having the capability — there are at least 13, 14 countries who have the capability to enrich uranium. Because it is used also for peaceful purposes to develop fuel for power reactor.

That is, frankly, a lacunae, a loophole in the system right now, and I’ve been calling for a number of years, including also President Bush and others, that we need to make sure that no one country should be able to have the enrichment capability or having the capability to also produce plutonium, because you are not very far from having a nuclear weapon should you decide to do that.

However, you know, having the enrichment capability and having a weapon is the wrong way to go. Iran right now has a nascent technology. What we are trying to do right now is keep that technology capability under an inspection. It is under an inspection.

Which I urge Iran to suspend these activities to build confidence. I make sure that we have robust inspection. But until we go into the negotiating mode, until we discuss the global insecurity in a hotbed of stability which is the Middle East, I think we will continue to go into this gradually to a confrontation.

I very much concerned about confrontation, building confrontation, Wolf, because that would lead absolutely to a disaster. I see no military solution. The only durable solution is through negotiation and inspection.

BLITZER: Because the rhetoric coming from Washington, from top Bush administration officials, seems to be heating up. This is what the vice president, Dick Cheney, said last Sunday. Listen to this.


DICK CHENEY, VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: The Iranian regime needs to know that if it stays on its present course, the international community is prepared to impose serious consequences. The United States joins other nations in sending a clear message: We will not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon.

(END VIDEO CLIP) BLITZER: Is that kind of rhetoric helpful or hurtful to what you’re trying to achieve? ELBARADEI: Wolf, it is clearly a question of distrust between Iran and most of the international community, at least the west, the U.S. in particular. And to build confidence, you will not be able to do that through just exchanging rhetoric. You need to go and create a condition to go to the negotiating table.

My fear that if we continue to escalate from both sides that we will end up into a precipice, we will end up into an abyss. As I said, the Middle East is in a total mess, to say the least. And we cannot add fuel to the fire.

Nobody wants Iran to have nuclear weapons. Nobody wants any country to have nuclear weapons. I think when you see Kissinger and Shultz and Perry and Sam Nunn saying we need to go toward abolition of nuclear weapons, I think everybody now, it should be a wakeup call. We cannot continue to rely on nuclear weapons — anybody — because it has become decreasingly effective and increasingly hazardous.

BLITZER: Because the U.S. position is — you know, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice reiterates it. The U.S. will have negotiations with Iran, direct negotiations, but first the Iranians must stop enriching uranium. Is that a mistaken policy on the part of the U.S. government?

ELBARADEI: Well, this is the U.S. policy. I can’t really pass judgment on it. All I can say, Wolf, the earlier we go into negotiation, the earlier we follow the North Korean model, the better for everybody. Negotiation stopped with North Korea from five years. They ended up with nuclear weapons. They ended up with a nuclear test.

You resume negotiation, now we see a positive result. I always compare between the Korean model and the Iraq model. And I believe that these security or insecurity issues can best — can only be resolved through negotiation.

BLITZER: Here’s what you said back in May in an interview with the BBC on May 8th. You said “you do not want to give additional argument to some of the ‘new crazies’ who want to say let us go and bomb Iran.” Who were you referring to when you spoke about the, quote, “new crazies”?

ELBARADEI: Well, I’m referring, Wolf, to anybody who is saying, “Let us use force right now,” because I believe we still have ample time for diplomacy; and, B, I believe that force is in no way a solution to the problem.

This is an issue of security and trust. You can only resolve that through negotiation. Using force can usually, in most cases, exacerbate the situation rather than improve it. It could even accelerate a drive by Iran, even if they are not working on a nuclear weapon today, to go for a nuclear weapon.

So we can talk about use of force as and when we exhausted diplomacy, as and when we have no other alternative, as and when we think this is the best option. But we are far, far away from that stage.

And I would hope that we should continue to stop spinning and hyping the Iranian issue because that’s an issue that could have a major conflagration, and not only regionally but globally.

BLITZER: Ahmadinejad — Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, when he addressed the United Nations General Assembly on September 25th, he said, “All our nuclear activities have been completely peaceful and transparent. I officially announce that in our opinion, the nuclear issue of Iran is now closed.”

Is that true, that all of their nuclear activities have been completely peaceful and transparent?

ELBARADEI: This is by no way the case — in no way the case, Wolf. The file is not closed. We are still very actively trying to reconstruct the history of Iran program to make sure that the past and present activities are exclusively peaceful.

I have a team today in Iran working hard with the Iranian authorities to clarify the past. I need to make sure that the past and the present is clean, and then we need to work with them, the international community, to build confidence about their future intention. And that’s why I’m saying we need diplomacy and — but also we need an inspection and they need to work in tandem.

BLITZER: As you know, the Israelis, in early September, bombed some sort of facility in Syria that was suspected of being a nuclear reactor, maybe a nuclear reactor built on a North Korean model.

I know you’ve seen these pictures. You’ve seen the before and the after. What’s your conclusion? Was this a nuclear reactor that the Syrians were building in their country based on a North Korean model?

ELBARADEI: Wolf, I’m very distressed, frankly, about this Syrian bombing because nobody — there had been chatter for the last few years. John Bolton three years ago went to testify before Congress and said there is concern about Syria.

And yet, until today, we have not received information about any nuclear-related activities, clandestine nuclear-related activities in Syria. The bombing, again, happened, and we never, until today, received any piece of information.

That to me is very distressful because we have a system. If countries have information that the country is working on a nuclear- related program, they should come to us. We have the authority to go out and investigate.

But to bomb first and then ask questions later, I think it undermines the system and it doesn’t lead to any solution to any suspicion, because we are the eyes and ears of the international community. It’s only the agencies and inspectors who can go and verify the information.

If Syria were working on a nuclear program, a clandestine program, then we’d obviously be able to draw the consequences. But today I don’t know where to go. I didn’t get any information. I contacted the Syrians. They said this is a military facility, has nothing to do with nuclear. And I would hope if anybody has information before they take the law into their own hands, to come and pass the information on.

BLITZER: So what you’re suggesting, Dr. ElBaradei, is neither the Israelis nor the U.S. government — or for that matter, any other government — gave you any hard evidence to back up this claim that this was a North Korean modeled nuclear reactor.

ELBARADEI: Or any evidence at all. Not only hard evidence, Wolf.

BLITZER: I know you’ve seen some commercial satellite photos though of the before and after. Are there any conclusions you can draw based on what you’ve seen in those satellite photos?

ELBARADEI: These are commercial satellite photos that we procured ourselves, has not been providing to us. And we’re still investigating them. We’re still comparing the pre and after.

But in addition to us buying commercial photos, I would very much hope that countries will come forward if they have information so we’ll do — go through a due process.

BLITZER: We’re almost out of time, but based on the commercial photos that you’ve seen from these satellite reconnaissance, are there any conclusions that you and your team have been able to come up with?

ELBARADEI: Not at this stage, Wolf. Not at all.

BLITZER: All right, and so it would be premature to allege that North Korea was proliferating in cooperation with the Syrians? Is that what you’re saying as well?

ELBARADEI: That’s correct.

BLITZER: Because I want to play a little clip of what the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, Peter Hoekstra, told me here on “Late Edition” last Sunday. Listen to this.


REP. PETER HOEKSTRA, R-MICH.: If North Korea or if Iran or other countries were involved in Syria, it, again, will be an indicator of what kind of agreement they will make and whether they would be willing to adhere to the agreements that they make in public.


BLITZER: Because he certainly seemed to be concerned, and he’s among a handful of members of the U.S. Congress who have been briefed by the Bush administration on what the Israelis did in Syria. He seems to suggest that you can’t trust the North Koreans at all because they’ve been cheating on their promises. I take it you’re not willing to go that far by a long shot. ELBARADEI: I can’t because I don’t have any evidence to support that assumption, Wolf.

BLITZER: Would you like the Israelis to brief you on what they know?

ELBARADEI: Absolutely, or anybody who has information. But you can’t trust anybody. We don’t work on the base of trust. But we — as President Reagan said, “trust and verify.”

And what I want very much is to be able to verify whether Syria, in fact, were working on a nuclear power program in a clandestine way or not. And the only way to do that is get information and to go out and verify.

BLITZER: You have a lot of credibility in these areas, Dr. ElBaradei, because before the war starred with Iraq and the removal of Saddam Hussein, you were contradicting the Bush administration’s insisting there was absolutely no evidence that Iraq under Saddam Hussein was reconstituting its nuclear weapons program.

Do you feel vindicated as a result of that, as you go into this next round of fears that Iran may be developing some sort of nuclear weapons program?

ELBARADEI: Well, Wolf, I don’t necessarily feel vindicated. I feel relieved that we discovered that Iraq did not have nuclear weapons. I feel also that people now should listen to us, because we have no hidden agenda. All we want to do is bring the facts out.

We should not take decisions that has to do — that crucial to war around peace before we are able 100 percent to make sure that the information on the basis we are working are accurate and professional.

BLITZER: Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei is the director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency. Dr. ElBaradei, thanks very much for joining us. Good luck to you and your entire team.

ELBARADEI: Thank you very much, Wolf. Keep well. Source Link : Wolf Blitzer – Late Edition.

Read it your self to get the facts how Bush Dick Rice are doing what they did with Iraq. Dick still insists that Saddam had the WMD.

US Military Attack Action Against Iran.

Posted by QB on October 28, 2007

The drumbeat by Bush regime is getting louder and louder saying the same lies which we heard before the invasion on Iraq. CNN and the mainstream media is busy creating false fears of Iran nuclear program which is in very initial stages is no threat at all for US Europe or Israel. The mainstream media criminally ignoring the facts that Iran uranium enrichment program has produced low grade uranium which can’t be used in nuclear weapons. The mainstream media never reported that Israel has stockpile of nuclear weapons which can blow up the whole Middle East, if Iran has couple of nuclear bombs that does not make them threat for US Israel and European countries. The Iranians are intelligent enough not to use the nuclear weapons because they don’t wanted to get destroyed by Israel carpet nuclear bombing.

The US military did not have a clear victory in Afghanistan and Iraq fighting with Resistance Groups who has outdated weapons and homemade explosive devices and Iran Military is well equipped well organized with the capability to cause the damage beyond American imagination. Iran’s has rockets which can hit the US military bases in Afghanistan, Iran, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, UAE, which they will do without any hesitation if attacked. Iran’s government will strengthen Hamas, Hizbollah, Taliban and Iraqi Resistance Groups in response to US military attack.

The following is interesting article posted by Maureen Dowd, which could be a satire or maybe is the actual interview by Tim Russert of Dick.

The Mixed Reaction from Iran on Sanctions.

Posted by QB on October 27, 2007

The reported reaction on latest US sanctions from Iran is showing division with new Nuclear negotiator believe that these sanctions will not hurt Iran. Iran’s new chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili on Friday brushed aside the latest US sanctions saying they would have no effect on the country’s nuclear policies, the ISNA news agency reported.

“These sanctions are nothing new. Sanctions have been imposed on us for 28 years. The new sanctions, like all those before, will have no effect on Iran�s policies,” Mr Jalili said at Tehran airport on his return from talks in Rome with European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana.

“The sanctions will only isolate the US on the international stage,” he said.

The Iran reformist party is criticizing Ahmadinejad government for not dealing with the nuclear issue effectively leading to these sanctions. The reformists argue Iran should return to suspending enrichment, the policy under Mohammad Khatami, the former president, who attended the meeting. The Islamic Iran Participation Front warned of an escalating crisis with the international community, calling for a review of Tehran’s nuclear policy.

At a meeting of the party attended by 200 people, Mohsen Mirdamadi, the party’s secretary-general, said: “The government should refrain from its adventurous policies.”

This is very clear division but the Reformist party and Iran Pan Islamic party know that Amhadinejad is dealing Iran nuclear issue according to policies set by Khemeini because he has the final authority to make decision on Iran nuclear issue. The Reformists and Iran Pan Islamic party should also understand that abandoning their nuclear program will never satisfy US and its European allies, they will find new accusations against Iran pushing them to the corner until they give power to someone like Hamid Karzai Nouri Al Maliki Pervez Musharraf.

There is no statement from Ahmadinejad or Khemini on the latest sanctions but CNN reported that Iran military mocked US and Israel with parade with creating US flags and David cross. Also reported from Pentagon that US military has start developing 30 thousand pounds bunker buster bomb in preparation of Iran invasion, but the Chief of Staff also said that Iran crisis must be resolved with negotiations not military confrontation.

Iran – Bush next target.

Posted by QB on October 19, 2007

The Bush crazy, insane, psychopathic, and brain damaged is focused on Iran nuclear weapon which does not exist at all and if Iranian decided to build Nuclear Bomb it will take ten years to build. US European allies wanted to impose tough sanctions on Iran outside UN Security Council, Ehud Olmert rushed to Russia to talk to Putin. The Bush corrupt regime used all sorts of fear tactics before the invasion of Iraq, they used sounds bites like “mushroom cloud”, “danger for Israel Security”, “helping suicide bomber in Palestine” for Saddam Hussein to achieve their goal of invading Iraq. Bush believe that Iran nuclear program will lead to WWIII which is the most stupid assumption, there were plenty of journalists in that press conference who did not tell him that Iran is no threat to world peace, it will be US European and Israel who will start the WWIII, if these governments take military action against Iran.

The best course to take on Iranian Nuclear Program to let the IAEA do their work. There is no proof of any wrong doing by IAEA on Iran Nuclear Program, its the paranoid leaders of US Germany France UK trying to make it a big issue.

There is no way US or its European allies with Israel can get away with military action on Iran Nuclear facilities without facing the fierce response from Iran, the stupid military action will lead to WWIII. The whole Middle East will be the battle ground with Iran attacking its military bases in Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Iraq and Hizbollah Syria and Hamas will join the fight by attacking Israel. Death and destruction will be the result with no clear victory for any country. The US has to nuke the whole Iran for complete victory.

This is interesting that Bush regime was blaming Iran for supplying weapons to Talibans, Afghanistan puppet government deny these charges by saying that they don’t have the proof that Iran is supplying these weapons. The Foreign Minister also said that Iran is Afghanistan’s neighbor friend who has major role in reconstruction of his country.

Changed the first line with Ric suggested words for Bush (Grumpy Lion) who will be taking time off from blogging and concentrate on his writing. Ric when finish and publish his novel will be best seller, I am sure,

Bush – Iran Nuclear Weapon lead to WWIII.

Posted by QB on October 18, 2007

Bush suppose to talk to the reporter on domestic issue on Wednesday instead he talked about Iran Nuclear Weapons. The moron said that Iran Nuclear Weapon could “leads to WWIII”,

“I’ve told people that if you’re interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing” the Iranians from gaining the means to make nuclear weapons, he said.

Who are these people? I believe are the American people, who have become paranoid by Bush regime fear mongering that they will immediately believe what he is saying because they are brain washed by government and mainstream media propaganda. The recent poll taken recently show that majority of Americans want military action against Iran without realizing the consequences of such attack. Bush statement is complete lie again, it is the US government and its European allies, who will be lead to WWIII. Putin is right advising direct talks to solve the issues with Iran. Bush again is hiding the truth by not telling the people that Iran is ten years away from developing nuclear bomb, if they are wanted to develop nuclear weapon, Iran insists that their nuclear program is for peaceful energy purposes. IAEA blasted US Intelligence report. Bush repeated the biggest propaganda lie that Ahmadinejad wanted to destroy Israel. The fact is that media has overplayed this “Wipe off the map” propaganda ignoring Ahmadinejad actual sentence which was “The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time”, the Imam in this sentence was Khomeini. CNN Fox News and the European print media spread rumors instead of actual news with biased to achieve the goals of Zionist. The majority of Americans and European believe that Ahmadinejad wanted to “Wipe Israel off the map” is excellent example of twisting the facts. Ahmadinejad called for regime change in Israel not the destruction of people and country. Putin support Iran peaceful nuclear program.

The US and its European allies stupid polices will lead to WWIII. This is what Fidel Castro said couple of days back, Fidel Castro is right that Bush policies the world to disaster. It is great to know that Fidel Castro think like me which is an honor from oldest revolutionary leader alive.

Putin – Iran assassination plot a bid to ‘wreck’ visit.

Posted by QB on October 18, 2007

Vladimir Putin on his assassination plot in Iran were to “wreck” his landmark visit to Iran. The chances are that CIA and Mossad release this news to stop Putin trip to Iran, or maybe it was Bush and Ehud Olmert the main minds behind this “suicide killing” news. Putin is intelligent enough not to cancel his visit to Iran.

“It was nothing other than an attempt to wreck the visit,” Putin said Thursday during a televised question-and-answer session, referring to a report ahead of his visit to Tehran on Tuesday that suicide bombers were planning to assassinate him there.“It’s harmful for international relations because direct dialogue with states where there are problems are always more productive and a quicker path to success than the path of threats, sanctions or even force,” Putin said.Putin’s comment echoed the reaction of Iran’s foreign ministry, which dismissed the report of the plot as an attempt by “enemies” to break up relations between Russia and Iran.“The reports in some media are completely without foundation and part of a psychological war waged by enemies to disrupt relations between Iran and Russia,” foreign ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini told AFP.

Bush must learn diplomacy from Putin. The majority of Democrats and Republicans also need to learn the foreign relations and diplomacy, all they have to do is borrow some common sense as none of them have his ability. The Presidential candidates have no common sense, common sense is missing in the Congress, Bush cabinet doesn’t have any common sense. All they how to talk tough threatening the whole world. USA has become the menace of the world. This is because the majority of Americans elect the corrupt charismatic lairs for the highest level of their government.

Putin bluntly commented that US wanted to seized the Iraqi Oil.

President Vladimir Putin, in his latest jab at Washington, suggested Thursday that the U.S. military campaign in Iraq was a “pointless” battle against the Iraqi people, aimed in part at seizing the country’s oil reserves.

Putin promise to complete Iran Nuclear Power Plant.

Posted by QB on October 17, 2007

Putin promise that Russia will go ahead with construction of Iran first nuclear power plant after meeting with Ahmadinejad without giving specific date of completion. Iran expected this out from this meeting and they get that Russia is not backing away from its obligations of building and fueling their nuclear power plant. The Caspian nation signed pledge not to allow US and its allies to launch attack on Iran. The declaration signed by Russia, Iran, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan, this is the fist step towards diving the Caspian oil reserves which they failed to agree at their previous meeting in Turkmenistan in 2002.

Putin and Ahmadinejad wants more cooperation between Russia and Iran which will be beneficial for the region.

Iranian officials are not giving the details of Putin nuclear deal. Khamenei tell Putin according to Iran news agency that “”We will consider what you said and your proposal.” Israel Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced to visit Russia on Thursday, few hours after Putin left Iran, which Israeli official described as a a “last-minute, urgent meeting”. Israel with US and European countries are very much against Iran nuclear program, the only country in the region with stockpile of WMD including chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. The sky will not fall down if Iran had couple of nuclear bombs which they are decade away from building. This is the politics at the worst where the whole world have to live under US and Israel dictatorship.

Putin send strong warnings to Bush from Iran.

Posted by QB on October 16, 2007

The Russian President Vladimir Putin is on confrontation course with Bush regime sending strong warnings not to use Caspian nation to launch attack on Iran. Putin also said that none of the
Putin, whose trip to Tehran is the first by a Kremlin leader since World War II, warned that energy pipeline projects crossing the Caspian could only be implemented if all five nations that border the Caspian support them.

Putin want Iran nuclear issue to be resolved with negotiations without threatening Iran because Iranians are not scared at all to these threats. Ahmadinejad agree with Putin on what he said for military action and building piplelines. This strong message is clear indication that Russia is not willing to impose tougher sanctions on Iran as proposed by US France UK Germany and any attack on Iran will be resisted by Russia and hopefully China. The Russian President did not see any clear evidence that Iran is building nuclear weapon. Iran is not happy with Russian delaying in building their nuclear power plant is another issue which will be discussed during Putin visit and the chances are that he will promise to complete this nuclear power plant in near future.

Putin committed mistake by allowing US to build its military bases in Russia neighboring countries after 9/11, now realize that it is danger to its own security. Putin, like rest of the world leaders, did not had the courage to standup against Bush madness and stupidity without any opposition of any kind. The world leaders let him do whatever he wanted to fight “war on terror”, did not oppose Afghanistan invasion, did not stop him to invade Iraq, let him build military bases all around Russia. Putin is now showing courage to oppose the invasion of Iran and stealing their Caspian Sea Oil reserves,

The Bush regime along with all the Presidential candidates, who wants to attack Iran nuclear facilities, will attack Putin like mad dogs on his statement from Iran and that is all that they can do. The other problem with US is that majority of people really don’t analyze the facts correctly, they just accept all the mainstream media propaganda. They do not realize that Iran if had nuclear weapons will not be any threat to US or Israel because these countries had stockpile of WMD which can destroy Iran completely. Iran knows this very well and they are not stupid to use nuclear weapons attacking Israel, they simply can’t take that risk, also Iran do not have capability to attack US. This is in the best interest of the world peace to deal Iran nuclear issue with negotiations instead of any sort of military confrontation. According to Putin Iranians are not scared of US and its allies threats.

The presidents of the five Caspian nations agreed in Tehran today to prohibit third countries from using their territory for attacks on one another “under any circumstances.”

The declaration, signed by Iran, Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan, is the first step in reaching a treaty on dividing up the energy-rich sea. The countries failed to reach an accord at a previous summit in Turkmenistan in 2002.

The assurance of Caspian neighbors is great win for Iran and US must reconsider its policies of aggressions with coming back to diplomatic negotiations.

Ahmadinejad – Rule out direct talk with US – Demonstrations – Criticism of his domestic enonomic policies.

Posted by QB on October 8, 2007

The Iranian President Ahmadinejad rejected any conditional direct talk with US demanding Iran to stop uranium enrichment. Iran rejects all U.S. preconditions for talks, Ahmadinejad asserted in response to U.S. President George W. Bush’s recent statement, in which he said he is ready to negotiate with Iran if the Islamic Republic agrees to halt its uranium enrichment program.

No one has the authority to bargain away the Iranian nation’s nuclear rights, the president stated.

Ahmadinejad said he is prepared to hold a debate with Bush about global problems, as he has said before.

“We believe a public debate will help promote world peace,” he observed.

The Tehran University students stage a protest against Ahmadinejad at Tehran University, where he was speaking at the start of new academic year.

“Ahmadinejad is Pinochet! Iran will not become Chile,” the students shouted, the witness said.

The students were demanding the release of students, who are held in Iran prisons for writing articles which are considered insult to Islam. Last year students staged protest against Ahmadinejad at Tehran University, setting his picture on fire and shouted “death to the dictator”. These demonstrators were confronted by Ahmadinejad’s supporters who shouted “Shame on you hypocrites! Leave the university!” This is democracy, there are people who support Ahmadinejad and there some people who had no fear criticizing him and his policies.

The students who are in prisons for publishing articles should not be send to jail for expressing their opinion. This is the problem with all the Muslim countries, they do no allow the open discussion on religious issues, which is necessary to bring the overdue reforms. The religion must be open for intelligent debate, instead of expecting everybody to accept the religion defined by Imams thousand year back. The Sunnis and Shiite religious scholars must open their minds and interpret Qur’an message, examine very carefully all the hadiths (Sunnis Shiites Talmud) which will create unity, tolerance and bring back the real Islam.

The students who demonstrated during Ahmadinejad speech were all arrested, according to one Iranian living in Tehran. This was not reported in any news.

PS: Need help from people living in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Jordan, Syria, Iran to give me the accurate news from inside these countries.

Hilary Clinton – Barak Obama – John Edwards are like Bush.

Posted by QB on October 4, 2007

Hilary Clinton is running her Presidential campaign on experience promising to bring end to Iraq war but will keep the majority of troops in Iraq. She also promise to engage in diplomacy to resolve the issues with other countries but it look like she would not be any different than Bush if get elected. Hilary Clinton is trying to be on the both sides of the issues, trying to please Democrats to end Iraq war, trying to please Republicans with passing resolutions against Iran. Hilary Clinton Democratic front runner, probably will get the nomination, will again be the bad choice like John Kerry who was nominated on the question of electable defeating Howard Dean, who according to my own reading had the better chance to defeating Bush in 2004.

The stunning admission by Democratic frontrunners Clinton, Obama, and Edwards that they might keep U.S. troops in Iraq beyond 2013 “is tantamount to an announcement of a permanent occupation that could cost U.S. taxpayers $5 trillion and bankrupt any opportunity to address health care reform, education, jobs, or any other domestic policy initiatives,” Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich said today.

The other two Democrats front runner are not different than Hilary Clinton. Obama opposes the Iraq invasion but he is promising new confrontations with crossing Pakistan borders, John Edwards who voted in favor of Iraq invasion, did applogize his vote in 2004 bid for Vice Presidency, support keeping us troops in Iraq. Hilary Clinton also believe in using limited nuclear weapons in Iran. There is no difference between Democrats and Republicans when it come to dealing the present world crisis, with these tough talks without even analyzing the consequences of their stupid actions.

The US government politicians take advantage of Americans ignorance with spinning the Middle East issues with the security of Israel. The following is an excellent example of this spin.

“‘Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran,’ John McCain sang to the tune of Barbara Ann.McCain then added, “Iran is dedicated to the destruction of Israel. That alone should concern us but now they are trying for nuclear capabilities. I totally support the President when he says we will not allow Iran to destroy Israel.”

This is the most stupid answer he give to reporters, which am sure is applauded by the majority of Republicans. The Americans really don’t know that there is no danger of Israel destruction with stockpile of Nuclear, Biological Weapons they possessed. Israel is capable of destroying all neighboring countries including Iran. The other fact is that  media has overplayed this “Wipe off the map” propaganda ignoring Ahmadinejad actual sentence which was “The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time”, the Imam in this sentence was Khomeini. CNN Fox News and the European print media spread rumors instead of actual news with biased to achieve the goals of Zionist. The majority of Americans and European believe that Ahmadinejad wanted to “Wipe out Israel of the map” is excellent example of twisting the facts.

The polls conducted by Fox News show 51 percent Americans support Military action against Iran and over 80 percent believe that Iran nuclear program is aimed at producing nuclear weapons only 6 percent believe that Iranian nuclear program is for peaceful purposes. The US Senate and House of Representatives have passed a non binding resolution declaring Iran Revolutionary Guards “terrorist organization”, Hilary Clinton voted in favor of this resolution like other 75 Senators. This is the deja vu before invasion of Iraq with majority of Americans public and politicians lost their sanity which caused the Iraq mess. Bush will take advantage of these polls and Senate and House of Representative non binding resolutions to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, that will be bigger blunder than Iraq invasion.

The Bush regime, if decided to attack Iran, will be fighting another war for Israel on cost of American tax payers money and human cost. Iran if had nuclear weapons can’t take risk to using it on Israel because they know the consequences of such attack.

Dennis Kucinich is the only Democratic Presidential candidate who can bring the US troops home from Iraq, can defuse tensions with Iran with diplomacy has really no chance of getting nomination. The result Bush will evacuate White House for someone like him Democrat or Republican.

Who is Evil? Ahmadinejad or Bush.

Posted by QB on September 26, 2007

The protesters at Columbia University holding up billboards where the most populars slogans were “Go to Hell” and “Evil” there were many billboards with Ahmadinejad portrayed as Hitler. Why were these people so angry against him? Two reasons Israel and Jews. There is absolutely no freedom of speech allowed to criticize the wrong policies of Israeli government and Jews in US and Europe.

Who really deserve to go to hell and is pure evil and close to Hitler? Ahmadinejad or Bush?

  • Ahmadinejad did not invade two sovereign nations and did not killed over million innocent people.
  • Bush did invaded Afghanistan and Iraq causing death and destruction on these countries killing over million innocent people.
  • Ahmadinejad is pursue his nuclear program which according to IAEA is not in violation of NPT is not acceptable.
  • Bush did use phosphorous bombs and cluster bombs in Falluja killing thousands of Iraqi civilians.
  • Iran is not allowed to have nuclear weapons.
  • US has all the WMD nuclear, chemical, biological which posses real danger to the world.
  • Israel is the only country in Middle East with nuclear weapons which is supported by US which is main cause of that region instability.
  • Ahmadinejad democratically elected President of Iran not acceptable to US because he criticize Israel and US policies of aggression and oppression.
  • Bush who was appointed by the Supreme Court is infact dictator denying US citizens their civil rights.
  • Ahmadinejad is accused of human rights violations.
  • Bush is in violation of Geneva Convention and human rights abuses with secret prisons, holding prisoners without any charges, torture, taping phones.

These are the few points which clearly show that Bush is EVIL, Bush is Hitler, Bush is dictator, Bush must go to HELL.

A regional security pact to calm the Middle East

Posted by QB on May 13, 2007

This is excellent article and I agree with what Patrick Seale has written.

A regional security pact to calm the Middle East

By: Patrick Seale
The failure of the Bush Administration’s Middle East policy is now so catastrophic as to pose a danger to international peace and security. It is high time the United States stepped aside and turned the region’s problems over to local powers.

What can be done? In my view, Saudi Arabia, the Arab world’s real heavyweight, should join its Gulf partners in offering Iran a wide-ranging security pact. The Arabs would guarantee not to allow their territory to be used for a U.S. attack on Iran, while Iran would guarantee not to use Shi‘a communities to destabilize the existing political order in the region.

Such a pact could help stabilize Iraq and cool Sunni-Shi‘a tensions. It might even be the only way to persuade Iran to give up whatever ambitions it may have to acquire nuclear weapons.

At the same time, Egypt should be given a wide Arab mandate and massive international backing — from Europe, but also from China, Russia and India, as well as the United States —to sell the Arab Peace Initiative to the Israeli public as a matter of urgency. This offers Israel peace with the entire Arab world if it withdraws to its 1967 borders and allows the creation of a Palestinian state.

The situation is grave because of America’s deplorable record. Its smashing of Iraq —for fabricated and fraudulent reasons — has led to a strategic, political, and human disaster unparalleled in the modern history of the Arab world. The United States has itself paid a heavy price for its criminal folly, but not nearly as heavy as that paid by the wretched Iraqis whose collapsed state has opened the door to a hell of utter lawlessness.

America’s destruction of Iraq has shattered the balance of power between Arabs and Persians, which for centuries was a key to the region’s stability; it has created an Iraqi refugee problem of mammoth proportions, matched only by that of the Palestinians driven from their homes by the creation of Israel in 1947-48; and it has ignited a cruel civil war between Sunnis and Shi’a, which threatens to set the region on fire.

The United States should get out at the earliest opportunity before it does more damage still.

Originally aimed at eliminating Al-Qaeda and its Taliban hosts, America’s war in Afghanistan has turned into a doomed struggle with the powerful Pathan tribes which dominate the east and south of Afghanistan and straddle the frontier with Pakistan. These are the men now fighting under the revived Taliban banner.

The unfortunate President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan (whose minister of interior was nearly killed by a suicide bomber last week) is caught between American pressure to prevent cross border infiltration into Afghanistan and the natural instincts of the fighting men in Pakistan’s tribal agencies to rush to the aid of their tribal brothers in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, much of Afghanistan is raging against America and its puppet government in Kabul for the ghastly casualties inflicted on the civilian population by indiscriminate U.S. air strikes and other abuses.

This is a war America’s NATO allies should never have joined. Far from eliminating “terrorism,” the war in Afghanistan, like the war in Iraq, has become a “terrorist factory,” creating whole armies of men bent on revenge for what America has done to their shattered societies.

The way to defeat Al-Qaeda —essentially a parasitic body feeding on other people’s conflicts —is to put an end to these wars, not to expand them. The urgent priority is not to stoke the fires of war but to lower tensions as much as is humanly possible and bring about calm and security so as to allow much-needed reconstruction to begin.

In Iran, the United States is in danger of making an even graver mistake than in Iraq and Afghanistan. It began by handing Iran two precious gifts: the (temporary) defeat of the Taliban and the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. This freed Iran from old enemies and potential threats on both its flanks, allowing it to emerge as a leading power in the Gulf, with extensions into the Levant by means of the Tehran-Damascus-Hizbullah axis.

The United States and its Israeli ally then took fright at this new challenge to their regional hegemony and have sought to put the Islamic Republic back in its box. They have together mounted a world-wide campaign to isolate Iran economically and politically, threatening it openly with armed attack.

As a “message” to Iran, the United States has sent two powerful carrier battle groups to the region and — again with enthusiastic help from Israel — has sought to undermine Iran’s banking system and starve it of international credits by pressuring major banks to stop dealing with it. These are illegal actions, which go far beyond the sanctions authorized by U.N. Resolutions.

In demonizing Iran, the United States and Israel have focussed primarily on its nuclear program, portraying it as an “existential threat” to Israel and a danger to the entire world. This is dangerous propaganda with little basis in fact.

Iran is many years away from being able to manufacture atomic weapons, even if it wished to do so, which is by no means clear. It is perfectly entitled to the peaceful uses of nuclear power under the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which it has signed but which Israel, India and Pakistan have not.

It is worth recalling that the possession of nuclear weapons can protect a country against attack, but that such weapons cannot be used against more powerful enemies without risking national extinction. I do not believe the Iranians are contemplating national suicide.

The present American and Israeli position is that they will not tolerate a nuclear-armed Iran. That is what they say. But what does it mean? What if Iran enriches uranium for peaceful purposes, as it is entitled to do under the NPT, but stops well short of a military program? Will the United States and Israel go to war to prevent that? It would be a catastrophic error.

There is hardly a corner of the region where U.S. policy has not spread mayhem. The latest victim of its diplomacy is Somalia, where the Ethiopian intervention it encouraged has caused a bloodbath and enormous human misery.

Last summer, it encouraged and supported Israel in its all-out war against Lebanon —a gross overreaction to a relatively trivial border incident.

The result has been to demonstrate Israel’s vulnerability to missiles and asymmetric warfare, to dent the deterrent capability of its army, to demoralize its population and expose its leaders as a bunch of incompetent and morally-dubious politicians.

The United States has followed Israel’s lead in seeking to undermine Hizbullah, the victor in the Lebanese war, and to boycott Hamas, the victor in democratic Palestinian elections. It has thus made bitter enemies of two popular and deeply-rooted resistance movements, which have sprung up in response to Israeli aggression and occupation.

Instead of urging Israel to make peace with its neighbors —the only long-term guarantee of its security —Washington has funded and turned a blind eye to its occupation and settlement of Palestinian and Syrian territory and has provided political cover for its aggression against Lebanon and for its extraordinarily brutal treatment of the Palestinians.

There is now serious talk of a third intifada, which would set the desperate Palestinian territories alight and carry death and destruction into Israel itself.

On a visit in April to the West Bank, Louis Michel, the European Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Assistance, noted that the situation in the territory had never been worse. Some 60 per cent of the population is living below the poverty line on two euros a day or less. Some 35 percent of the population — 1.3 million Palestinians — are going hungry. More than half the children suffer from anemia. A quarter of the population have no access to drinking water. Hundreds of Israeli check points rule out any possibility of economic development, reducing the population to a situation of permanent siege and permanent terror. Does Israel’s security justify such measures, Louis Michel asked?

Is it not time regional powers took their destiny into their own hands, free from external, and specifically nefarious American, interference?
