by Jim FetzerThe situation is completely absurd. Iran has not attacked any other nation since 1775. It has signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty. It has allowed inspectors. All 16 of our own intel agencies concluded in 2007 that Iran was not pursuing nuclear weapons, which they reaffirmed in 2011. Even the Mossad reached the same conclusion in 2012--three weeks before Bibi Netanyahu went to the UN to declare precisely the opposite! Now we have hysterical opposition to the P5 + 1 agreement that governs its non-existent program. And we even have calls from Times of Israel to nuke Iran!
The members of the United States Senate appear to be completely oblivious not only of the history of the Iran nuke program but even of the Geneva Conventions. Under the Geneva Conventions of 1949, Article 33, no one may be punished for a crime that they did not personally commit. The sanctions we are imposing on Iran are a form of collective punishment that qualifies as "a war crime". We committed a war crime by imposing a "No Fly Zone" over Iraq, which led to the death of 500,000 Iraqi infants. No wonder we (the United States) are in such serious straits abroad!
And the situation regarding ISIS is equally absurd, because ISIS was created by the DIA in order to "isolate Syria" and make it easier to attack. We have the document that proves it! The Iraqi Army shot down two UK cargo planes delivering supplies to ISIS and subsequently shot down a US chopper doing the same. We have ISIS members sporting US Army tattoos. And the ISIS "beheading" videos were shot on a stage in Hollywood. We have been lied to again and again by our leaders, who must be held to account. Contact the Congress and complain!
