Obama and the Evil Empire threaten war against Iran

Obama uses UN speech to threaten war against Iran
By Bill Van Auken
26 September 2012
President Barack Obama postured before the United Nations Tuesday as the champion of peace and democracy, while threatening war against Iran and demanding a crackdown against the wave of anti-US demonstrations that have swept the Middle East.
This, Obama’s fourth address to an opening session of the UN General Assembly since taking office in 2009, was saturated with hypocritical invocations of “American values” and lies about Washington’s actions on the world stage.
The US president delivered an unmistakable threat that the US is preparing to launch yet another war of aggression, this time against Iran, with potentially far bloodier consequences than those it has carried out in Afghanistan and Iraq over the last decade.
“Make no mistake: a nuclear-armed Iran is not a challenge that can be contained,” Obama declared. “It would threaten the elimination of Israel, the security of Gulf nations, and the stability of the global economy. It risks triggering a nuclear arms race in the region and the unraveling of the non-proliferation treaty. That is why… the United States will do what we must to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.”
Asserting that there is “still time” for the US to force Iran to cede to its demands by means of diplomacy, he added, “that time is not unlimited.”
The facts are that international inspectors have found no evidence that Iran has embarked on a nuclear weapons program or is doing anything other than developing nuclear power for peaceful purposes. Israel, which is supposedly threatened with “elimination,” has built some 400 atomic weapons while refusing to sign the nuclear non-proliferation treaty and categorically rejecting any inspection of its secret nuclear program. If there is a threat of an arms race in the region and a breakdown of the non-proliferation agreement, this Israeli nuclear stockpile is its source.
Obama’s speech came one day after the US Treasury Department claimed to have uncovered links between Iran’s state oil company and the country’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, providing a pretext for escalating its unilateral sanctions against banks doing business with the company.
Meanwhile, the US has assembled its largest ever armada in the Persian Gulf, including two aircraft carrier battle groups, a new “forward staging base” vessel, and half of the US Navy’s mine-sweeping fleet, all of which are participating in joint exercises with warships from over 30 countries.
Much of the US president’s 30-minute speech was dedicated to the recent upheavals that swept the Middle East and predominantly Muslim countries in South Asia and Africa, with crowds attacking US embassies in over a dozen capitals. Describing the protests as “mindless violence,” Obama lumped them together with the September 11 attack by an Islamist militia on the US consulate and a CIA headquarters in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi that killed US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
Obama declared these events “an assault on the very ideals upon which the United Nations was founded—the notion that people can resolve their differences peacefully; that diplomacy can take the place of war.”
What insolence! After a decade of US wars that have claimed the lives of over a million Iraqis and Afghans, the US president is the last person to lecture the people of the Middle East on how to “resolve their differences peacefully” and the advantages of diplomacy over war.
Obama added, “If we are serious about these ideals, we must speak honestly about the deeper causes of this crisis.” However, he did no such thing. Instead, he treated the anger against the US as merely the product of the crude anti-Islamic video “Innocence of the Muslims” and of those who promote “hatred of America, or the West, or Israel.”
There was nothing in the speech about Washington’s wars, its unconditional support for Israel’s oppression of the Palestinians, or its reliance on dictatorial regimes and absolute monarchs to secure semi-colonial control over the region and its energy resources.
Obama went on to present a potted history of US reaction to the so-called “Arab Spring” that began with working class uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt early last year. Washington, he claimed, had “supported the forces of change,” had been “inspired by the Tunisian protests,” had “insisted on change in Egypt,” and had “supported a transition in Yemen, because the interests of the people were not being served by a corrupt status quo.”
Anyone familiar with the recent history of the region knows that the American president is lying. The US government was so “inspired” by the revolt in Tunisia that it approved a $12 million military aid package to the dictatorial regime of President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali to help it beat and shoot the demonstrators into submission.
It pursued the same policy in Egypt, seeking to the bitter end to prop up Hosni Mubarak, whose regime had been kept in power with US military aid and political support for three decades. Only after it was clear that the two dictators could no longer cling to power did the US shift policy, working to salvage as much as it could of the old regimes.
As for Yemen, the US-backed “transition” has kept in power a regime that is virtually identical to the old one, with the dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh replaced by his vice president, and with the US carrying out far more intense military intervention, with dozens of drone assassinations and special forces raids.
Obama presented the US-NATO war for regime-change in Libya as well as the attempt by Washington and its allies to topple the government of Bashar al-Assad in Syria as a continuation of this “Arab Spring.”
In Libya, he claimed, the US intervened under a UN mandate to protect civilians. In reality, it brazenly violated this mandate, waging an aggressive war that led to the deaths of tens of thousands of Libyans. The proxy forces it supported on the ground included the same Islamist militia elements that killed the US ambassador in Benghazi. Its aims, as in Iraq, were not humanitarian or democratic, but predatory—principally to assert US hegemony over Libyan oil reserves, while denying control to its rivals, particularly China.
Obama repeated his demand for regime-change in Syria while expressing concern that the current civil war “not end in a cycle of sectarian violence.” In reality, the US has done everything it can to stoke sectarian warfare as part of its scheme to mobilize the Sunni monarchies of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States, as well as Al Qaeda-linked militias, in a campaign to bring down the Syrian government and thereby weaken Washington’s main regional rival, Iran.
The US president offered no proposal whatsoever on the Israel-Palestine question. Instead, he called for the region to “leave behind those who thrive on conflict, and those who reject the right of Israel to exist.” This amounts to a blanket endorsement of Israel’s illegal occupation and its continuous expansion of settlements in West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Echoing the bellicose rhetoric of his predecessor, Obama spoke three times in his address about “bringing to justice” those who attacked Americans abroad. It was a not-so-subtle reminder of the US president’s status as “assassin-in-chief,” holding weekly meetings at the White House to choose targets for execution by US drone attacks.
The hollow rhetoric, hypocritical sermonizing and bullying threats received a tepid response from the assembled delegates. The US president had not a single new initiative or original conception to offer. The speech only made clear that his administration will continue to employ military aggression, economic pressure and CIA destabilization to secure US control over the Middle East and its energy wealth, all the while posing as the patron of “democracy.”

The whole world should rise with one voice against the Evil Empire , USA and destroy it before it destroys the world.

I have good feelings about Iranian. They are 100% biologically the same tribe as high caste Indians. Compared to the noble Iranian, high caste Indians are really shit head nuts. This time USA is really the trouble maker.

I am not convince Iran wants a bomb. Ayatollah Khamenei, her highest leader prohibits a bomb. Iran wants a Japan option. Meaning, it would like to have the technological ability to have a bomb within 1-3 month.

I do not like a nuclear Iran. However, Iran has good reason to own a nuke. Her neighbours and nemesis Pakistan owns nukes. Further away, India, Russia and Israel owns nuke. The international communities does not have good reason denying the proud Persian a "Japan capability".

Israel hates Iran's nuclear research. Because it will neuter all Israel's strategic advantage.

I am an engineering student. After some research years ago, I came to conclusion that even a significant wealthy individuals could, although with much effort engineer a thermo-nuclear device. It is a engineering problem, not a scientific one.

I believe Iran could do it.

The Americans are the gangsters, the judge and the executioner. On one hand they preach peace, preventing wars but will be the first to start a war using fabricated lies. And Obama is lying through his teeth at the UN, branding Iran as the bad guy when the Americans are really the bad guy, with all the weapons of mass destruction waiting to use on the Iranians.

Can the nations of the world stand up and say no to the evil Americans? If the nations of the world are not going to stand up to this evil empire, it will collude with the Israelis to strike at Iran. And they will claim that it was for peace.

Liars, gangsters!!!

Among the super-power, USA is the most benevolent. How about USSR or PRC? Today, even though PRC is not going to war, it support thugs like N Korea, Myanmar, Pakistan, KhmerRouge, Ho Chi Minh, and many of those Arabic dictator that has cause untold misery to many.

For me USA is 60% good 40% bad. The problem is capitalism for its structural contradiction needs to be constantly at war. Unless USA decide to go socialism, it will need to keep waging wars, else the whole elite class will collapse.

We need to criticized USA in a rational way.

While Israel has commited abuses to Palestinians, the most harm towards the Muslim are commited by Arabic dictators who are themselves Muslim. Israel cannot be responsible for all those shit happening to the Arabs. She is just a small dot.

If you want me to find the biggest culprit, the Al-Saud family that Sunni mullahs tell everyone Muslim to revered is the mother of all scumbag.

USA most benevolent?

Beg to differ, no nation has ever been more vile than the Americans.

Toxic financial products, creative marketing, weapon sale, instigation false fabrication, imposition and of course mass killing in many others' lands since the day the Whites stepped into the Land of the Red Indians to annihilate them.

Was there a worse villian?

USA has given Singapore its prosperity, as well as the 3 other tiger. USA fought a war that save China from japan. USA tries to save IndoChina from PRC.

I am not convince of skewed numbers of Amerindian decimated under USA. If it happens in USA, same thing could happen in Canada as well. (how come no one accuse canada for that)

But I agreed that USA's good dominance of the world is eroding as baby boomers took over. Now, they are no longer that good.

And Islamist, especially Sunni could not get the fact that actually they screw themselves. Look at Dubai and Gulf states, they could have bring in millions of unemployed Arab Muslim to work and to bring them up the skill set and technology.

What those Sheikhs did. They bring in all the FT Indians. Wonder why muslim never fuck their greed Sultan and Sheikhs including the mother fucker later Sultan Iskandar of Johor.

Why you buggers keep complaining about USA ?

Who give Redbeans Blogger, Google, Wordpress to blog ? PRC , India , USSR, PAP ?

I will agree with Veritas. USA may not be perfect, but i definitely prefer it over PRC, India, USSr, and other countries. They do more good than harm. They have capitalism balance with democacy. Why do we have here ? Pure Greedy morally corrupted government that bent on using autocratic rule to give themselve wealth and power.

India is the most fuck up country and especially the high caste Indian is the most wicked maggots that you don want them in your house. (I do not mean middle or low caste Indian is very good but I am willing to give confident of doubt)

We must be careful about importing these people. I studied history as hobby. I do not make such strong comment without really over-whelming evidence.

If you read my comments often, I do not hate
1) Japan, even if it harm China
2) USA
3) Iran, even if it is same race with high caste Indian

I am really extremely into Buddhism, the most crystalline form of Dharmic religion. Yet I really resent India. I have very strong reason for this.

“I like the US. But at the same time I think my country is an imperial country that is going downhill, and our leadership does not even acknowledge the confesses Gravel.“Phony triumphalism has turned into a device to make
Americans live in fear of a terrorist attack, yet you are a thousand times more likely to catch cancer than ever be hurt by that,” he points out.“All I can say
about what the US is doing – it‘s immoral,” Gravel says, explaining that “as a result of 9/11, we have altered our moral compass. And people began to get used to brutalizing each other.”“We Americans used to think ‘oh, what happened in Germany could never happen with us!’ Well, it is happening with us. And it is happening to the detriment of our global position.”“In Afghanistan, in Iraq and in Vietnam at the era, all American soldiers died in vain,” Gravel claims, recalling the millions of war victims in Vietnam, which is now developing along its own path, regardless." unquote

The Americans still believe that they can hit others and others cannot hit them. When the muslims get their act together and bring the war to the Americans, it will be very painful and shocking. Other than 911, they can hit the Americans everywhere. There is no need to face the American military might headon. Just taking down the Americans on the street will be enough to break the morale of the American people.

It is time the American people stop their govt and arms merchants from killing and maiming people across the world through wars. War is nearer than they could imagine.

Anon 3:25 PM is spot on.
Sooner or later, all Americans
will be targetted for reprisal and
wars will be fought in the US itself.

All the other non-American Whites will
also become collateral damage as a consequence too.

Election time is coming in the US, so expect more war cries, more breast beating and more promises of dealing with the enemies.

Who can do better in pulverising China, Iran, North Korea and the like? Politics is the same everywhere. The show must go on, until after the election. Then everything gets forgotten! Just enjoy.

Wars will be brought to the doorsteps of American homes since they love war so much.

It's true. All throughout their existence, The US is under the perception that it's distance from enemies makes it safe from attacks.

That is why they were so fearful of Russian missiles in Cuba. That is also why they are worried about China having aircraft carriers that can project a strike closer to their shores. Hardly a threat of any severity right now, but will be in time to come.
