U.S. hopes IAEA report on Iran justifies attack

Now that a more pliable leadership is in place at the IAEA, the US government and its proxies can barely contain their excitement over the prospect it will legitimize the march to war:
U.S. says IAEA report on Iran next week critical | Reuters: (Reuters) - A report due next week from the IAEA nuclear watchdog will be an important point for the world to assess whether Iran is meeting its obligations, the White House said on Thursday.

Earlier, U.S. President Barack Obama said he had discussed his concerns about Iran and its nuclear program with French President Nicolas Sarkozy ahead of the G20 summit and both had agreed that international pressure needed to be maintained on Iran.

"The IAEA is scheduled to release a report on Iran's nuclear programme next week and President Sarkozy and I agree on the need to maintain the unprecedented pressure on Iran to meet its obligations."
What these bozos never mention is their own culpability in the nuclear proliferation game, or their own obligations to reduce and eliminate their stockpiles of nuclear weapons under the NPT. While vociferously lambasting Iran for its supposed transgressions, the US and its crying club fails to mention its darling Israel's absence from the NPT's. The Iranians are surrounded by nuclear states and the US military machine, and yet these posturing hypocrites deem themselves the arbiters of whose defensive needs are legitimate.

The rules of the game are quite simply, whoever has the biggest arsenal makes the rules.

The Israelis, in particular, are the worst of the rogue states in their utter disregard for international norms and agreements. They are constantly pushing their big, dumb enforcer to stymie votes critical of Israel in the UN security council, and so never have to deal with the kind of condemnation that the US puts countries like Iran through, when Iran's track record of aggression against its neighbors is negligible compared with the murderous regime in Tel Aviv.

While all states are immoral to one degree or another, the world has gone mad because of propaganda and manipulation by powerful interests to legitimize their crimes, while those who oppose and resist are cast as the worst of the worst. They hardly qualify, but who is left to honestly judge?
