Are We Close to Negotiation or War with Iran?

February 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 135

Okay so, suffice it to say that whatever we read in the news is probably BS, take a recent set of articles not long ago about the showdown over Iran's nuclear weapons production. One set of news stories tells a tale of deceit by Iran, and an acceleration of their uranium enrichment according to the IAEA and United Nations. Another, talks about the Iranian Regime telling the world that it will negotiate but that the nuclear program will go on and increase no matter what, and regardless of international media propaganda against them. Finally, an article appeared stating that US Intelligence Agencies doubt Iran is making a nuclear bomb.

Okay so, which is it, and what can we believe. Are these articles saying that Iran is enriching uranium for nuclear fuel for their peaceful energy production, but definitely not to make nuclear weapons? Even so, then why did Iran recently kick out IAEA Inspectors and purposely avoid questions, refusing to even acknowledge or answer them? What are they hiding? And why would they risk economic collapse over an attempt to conceal nothing, or that their big bluff and secret is that; there is no secret at all?

There was an interesting article in the New York Times entitled; "U.S. Agencies See No Move by Iran to Build a Bomb" by James Risen and Mark Mazzetti, published on February 24, 2012, which stated; "Even as the UN nuclear watchdog said in a new report Friday that Iran had accelerated its uranium enrichment program, American intelligence analysts continue to believe that there is no hard evidence that Iran has decided to build a nuclear bomb."

Of course, that same day the NYT reports in an article entitled; "Atomic Agency Says Iran Is Making Fuel at Protected Site," by David E. Sanger and William J Broad - that the IAEA says Iran has accelerated their nuclear enrichment program. Perhaps, we are on the verge of negotiating with Iran, and our intelligence agencies at the request of the President and the Obama Administration has downplayed any accusations prior to a physical meeting of the minds between our two countries.

And back to my original comment. Apparently, we can't believe anything we read in the newspaper, especially when there are two conflicting stories in the same newspaper on the same day, not to mention what's on Russian TV, the BBC, Al Jazeera, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, The Economist, Foreign Affairs, The New York Times or any of the other major newspapers around the world, including the collection of thoughts by the Council on Foreign Relations - and yes, I read and listen to all of it.

The reality is that anyone who really knows isn't telling, and anyone who is telling doesn't know. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on.
