The position of the United States and Israel regarding Iran’s nuclear program is simply stunning in its blatant racism and hypocrisy.
Considering the brutal and extensive interventions in Iran’s affairs by the US, as well as the war of aggression initiated by Saddam Hussein’s Iraq (at the behest of and financed by the US and its allies) that cost Iran over a million lives, it is Iran that is the threat to the stability of the region?
And while Israel is permitted to have nuclear weapons (approx. 200) without question, Iranians cannot be trusted to have even one because they are so irrational that they would commit national suicide by attacking a heavily nuclear-armed Israel with their first and only warhead?
As a result of this hypocrisy and racism, we are treated to the spectacle of a nation with the largest nuclear stockpile, teaming up with a nation with the largest “concealed” nuclear stockpile, to threaten a nation with NO nuclear weapons at all (much less a stockpile) about the right to enrich uranium.
This entire charade would be laughable if its consequences weren’t so tragic.
