When Are We Going to Stop the Iranian Masquerade?
At a press conference in Tehran today, Ali Larijani, Iran's top nuclear negotiator, reiterated that his country won't renounce its right to enrich uranium and might reduce its oil exports in response to UN sanctions.
Once again, Iran uses the oil blackmail to influence our policies and it can easily do so, as it has the world's second largest natural gas reserves (after Russia) and the third largest oil reserves in the world. How ironic is it that a country that pretends to be desperately in need of (nuclear) energy is using the very fact that it hold so much (oil) energy to force us to agree. Is that not the biggest masquerade, or farce, of all time?
Iran does not need nuclear energy, but needs a nuclear bomb. And until we recognize this fact and confront Iran accordingly, we will expose ourselves to great dangers. Speaking of which, letting the Russians negotiate on our behalf may prove to be a highly dangerous move, as Russians are too biased toward Iran to be trusted.
This farce would be almost funny if we were not dealing with the most dangerous Islamo-fascist country in the world and with a weapon that can destroy the planet in a matter of minutes.
Some would say that even if Iran gets nuclear weapons, that would not be a threat to Europe and to the US, but just to Israel. But that would be as stupid as saying in the 30s that Hitler would only be a threat to Austria… We are dealing with a country led by fascists driven by the desire to impose Islamic law on the world, and strategically placed in the middle of a region that holds the largest reserves of oil. Do we want Iran to have nuclear bombs? If not, it would be about time to stop this masquerade…
