The Embargo on the Truth About the Iranian Arms Embargo 82


The corporate media in both the UK and US are attempting to portray the Iranian desire to have the arms embargo lifted, as a new and extraneous demand that could torpedo the nuclear deal. This is an entirely false portrayal.

The issue has been included in the talks since, quite literally, the very first Iranian position document. And there is a reason for that. It is absolutely part and parcel of the issue and in no way extraneous to it. If there were any real journalists employed by the corporate media, that is obvious right on the face of UN Security Council Resolution 1747 of 2007 which imposed the arms embargo. The sole and exclusive reason given for the arms embargo is Iran’s nuclear enrichment programme. And it specifically states that, once the nuclear proliferation issue is resolved, the embargo will be lifted.

Paragraph 13 reads:

(b) that it shall terminate the measures specified in paragraphs 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
and 12 of resolution 1737 (2006) as well as in paragraphs 2, 4, 5, 6 and 7 above as
soon as it determines, following receipt of the report referred to in paragraph 12
above, that Iran has fully complied with its obligations under the relevant
resolutions of the Security Council and met the requirements of the IAEA Board of
Governors, as confirmed by the IAEA Board;

It is the United States, not Iran, which is introducing extraneous factors, banging on about Yemen, Iran and Hezbollah, which are nowhere mentioned in the Security Council Resolutions.

The way this is being reported in the media is the exact opposite of the truth. The United States is attempting to welch on a deal which was not only open, but forms the very text of the security council resolution. None of the BBC’s highly paid analysts, reporters, or guest commenters is capable of noting this basic fact.

    “A lot to do with lying hypocrits who rewrite history..”

    ‘Ah. Well spotted Carruthers. We seem to have identified part of the base core personality there. Let’s get it labelled up for the benefit of the other posters on the site and see if we can spot any of the other personalities in there.’

    ‘Thank you Major. I’m reasonably confident that the personality that vehemently denies he said that will be along shortly.’

    ‘Yes you are quite right Carruthers. We have two of the personalities sharing that cranial space tied down and tagged. I wonder how many more there are in there?’

    ‘Perhaps, Major, we could tease out another one by pointing out that at least one the personalities has said, or at least implied, that it is a UK wide Parliament in which the 56 Scottish MP’S are sitting and by definition it is perfectly OK for one Tory MP in Scotland to veto that 56 SNP contingent and the will of the Scottish people. After all, according to one of the personalities that’s what they voted for.’

    You’ve been reading Wings over Scotland again haven’t you Carruthers!’

    ““Once the Palestinian problem is solved the conditions for an Iranian recognition of Israel will be possible,” Zarif said”

    A clever put down, because if the Iranian revolution had not happened Palestine would likely no longer exist, its people bombed and poisoned into extinction years ago.

    Crisis time for the gangster state and therefore a dangerous time for humanity. It looks like the US ain’t going to be invading Iran any time soon. Unless something happens.

    What the IMF and World Bank really fear is the system they created backfiring on them. As soon as loans are made from that starting capital of BRICS the magic of liquidity ratio takes over and that initial $50 billion starting capital becomes (and this is where the magic comes in) worth $400 billion with a liquidity ration of 8:1. What is worrying the banking family cartels of Rothschild and Rockefeller is that they will not the beneficiaries of this ‘complement’ to global banking. They will take us into war of course. They always do.

    @BZ. it would be nice to hop around different proxies, any proxy would do – provided you went somewhere else after half-an-hour! the data-mining offensive capabilities are becoming unbelievable, I’m hearing of advertising/badvertising machines with a terabyte of RAM, and massed GPGPU accelerators. These things can correlate any number of needles vs. haystacks. I think TAILS over TOR on a cheap Pi is a minimum, and very easy to setup, for a not very geo-localised “freedom to search”

    You still need the second Pi for installing an (free) S/MIME signing certificate on your email client
    [email protected] ~ $ sudo apt-get install iceape
    then on a slightly more powerful PC than a Pi, go to https://secure.instantssl.com/products/!SecureEmailCertificate_Signup
    and generate your [GCHQ tracking]Public-Key/Private-Key pair which you collect from

    with your password, once you “downgrade” your GMail preferences to “Lower Security” then you can start using Client based [instead of webmail]*signed* gmail messages that are probably from you, and can selectively be encrypted, should you need to be profiled slightly less, to get further out of the bubble.

    Israel’s Diplomatic Strategy: Attack the Iran Deal, Not ObamaThe Israeli diplomatic echelon was not caught by surprise with the deal reached between world powers and Iran over the latter’s nuclear program on Tuesday, with the working assumption for weeks in Jerusalem being that the deal is a foregone conclusion and Israel must instead prepare for the day after.

    A senior Israeli diplomat told Arutz Sheva on Tuesday morning that Israel isn’t hanging its hopes on the American Congress’s review and vote on the deal, which will be a 60-day process, but the Jewish state will nevertheless try to diplomatically engage with Congress to drum up opposition to the deal.

    The source revealed that Israel will focus its attention on the dangerous nature of the deal, and will avidly avoid condemning US President Barack Obama’s administration for pushing through the deal.

    That tactic comes despite the fact that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday that “there are those who are ready to make an agreement at any price,” sending a barb Obama’s way.

    “There is no point in criticizing the administration for now, because soon we will need to speak with the Americans about the amount of compensation (to Israel – ed.) over this process. We need to attack this very bad deal, and there is no doubt we will condemn it in all ways, but there is no point in shaking up relations with the United States at this point,” the senior source told Arutz Sheva.

    Thank you for that information regarding search engines. I used to rely on Google ten years ago. Not sure I can go to that time-expense and inconvenience of changing everything I have become familiar with. But the university project seems like a good idea. Then somebody can sell me the Gizmo that gets round the MSM garbage and to the real stories.

    What is worrying the banking family cartels of Rothschild and Rockefeller is that they will not the beneficiaries of this ‘complement’ to global banking. They will take us into war of course.

    That is just part of the blow! The more unforgivable event is the Iranian negotiations with the 5+1 (why could they not put six is a mystery, but hey that is idiosyncrasy for you) coming to fruition.

    I have always mentioned that zionistan was designed and brought about, as an independent clearing house for the relevant bankster dynasty. The proof of the pudding is the lamentation of the nat’an’yahoo about the unfreezing of the Iranian bank accounts which were frozen under sanctions (why do people ever trust any of the banksters with their money beats me?). All that free money (zilch interest payable, remember it is under sanctions) sitting there and earning the relevant banksters oodles of interest and dividends as the various books are cooked. Suddenly the rightful owners turning up and taking it away, hence the; “darkest day in history”! As the lower than the pondslime nat’an’yahoo has gone on record saying.

    Googling “Israel’s Diplomatic Strategy” got it top of the page for me in Arutz Sheva, YKMN, And it came up in a prior search for “Iran Israel” too, but seems to have gone now. No shortage of Arutz Sheva hits, btw, a very good source for the official Israeli line. Thanks for the response on proxy servers: however I’ve noticed little difficulty in finding what I’m looking for so far. This may be down to the server I’m on. Specifying http://www.google.com/ncr is also a good idea.

    Thanks for the extra damning pdf Ba’al, the date on it is Sep.1996, it fits perfectly, a couple of years of planning the event, action preps etc. finding the right stooge probably wasn’t that hard and then in 2000, the presentation of a false blueprint.

    It has to be one of the most primitive CIA actions ever planned. When will we see the reality program, reliving the event on our screens?

    From the Wikipedia entry List of earthquakes in Iran:

    Iran is one of the most seismically active countries in the world, being crossed by several major fault lines[1] that cover at least 90% of the country.[2] As a result, earthquakes in Iran occur often and are destructive.

    “Always known you were part of the lying hypocrits set.”

    ‘Wake up! Carruthers! Wake up! By Jingo I think we’ve found another one!’

    ‘Eh? Wha,….another what sir, I mean Major?’

    Another personality Carruthers.

    Sorry sir, I mean Major. I was having that dream again I was telling you about. The one with the flying pigs with the mutilated genitalia and the starving bankers.’

    ‘Or was it the other way around?……’

    ‘Carruthers!’

    ‘Yes sir, I mean Major.’

    ‘Pull yourself together. ‘

    ‘Sorry Sir, I mean Major. What have we got?’

    “Always known you were part of the lying hypocrits set.”

    ‘Hmmm. I’m not convinced sir, I mean Major. This seems to be another manifestation of the earlier personality we tagged as the core base one. You know, the one with all the bile.’

    ‘By jove I think you’re right Carruthers.’

    ‘Again.’

    ‘What was that Carruthers?’

    Nothing sir, I mean Major.’

    ‘If only Freud were still alive, eh what Carruthers!’

    ‘Quite sir, I mean Major. Although looking on the up side, or perhaps that should be the down side, this particular gestalt entity we are dealing with is keeping the spirit of Freud’s nephew Berneys burning as right as ever. There might be a paper in this about inter generational psychosis.’

    ‘Steady now Carruthers. Don’t forget those in there have a lot of help from a number of fellow travellers on this site in that department. Their contribution would need to be acknowledged.’

    ‘You’re right sir, I mean Major. Although it has to be said that at the moment the usual suspects seem to be AWOL. It’s like tumbleweed out there. Perhaps they’ve hired a charabanc and gone on the local gentleman’s gentleman club daytrip trip to the seaside. Do you think all the boys and girls still get a ten shilling note to spend from the Club Committee funds?’

    ‘Yes. You may have a point there Carruthers. That chap Fred with the multiple personalities is batting on his own today and I suppose one must give credit where it’s due, trying to shoehorn SNP BAD, SNP EVEN BADDER,SNP EVIL WICKED, GIBBER, GIBBER, DROOL, into a discussion on the international talks over the Iranian nuclear power programme does demonstrate a unique level of deranged fetishism.’

    ‘Quite sir, I mean Major. It would be interesting to find out what the other personalities think about that. Particularly the one which denies everything the core base personality says.’

    ‘Well keep at it Carruthers. And try and stay awake.’

    ‘Yes Major.’

    ‘Good man!’

    Given that your Russian search engine is state controlled perhaps unsurprisingly it didn’t find this:

    And your searches in English or your usual prejudices missed this

    and in particular the following comment

    “The Russian state media published various disinformation articles saying that Kara-Murza, Jr. had suffered an overdose of depressants. But his physicians and family denied these claims.”

    Thanks to Clarke and others. So how does the media construct and disseminate its blinkers.

    How are no go issues or angles signalled? And

    how are they communicated without blowing the whistle on the narrowing or spinning of reporting?

  • fedup

    Thanks to Clarke and others. So how does the media construct and disseminate its blinkers

    The trends are set during “briefings”; spokespersons, editorial, lunch appointments, etc. Once the direction of narrative is formed then the question remains how to get the foot soldiers toe the line, which is done through various sub-editors, and editors, oversight and “corrections”. Presto the consensus prevails, and the hamburger munchers get told what they have just thought out all by themselves!
