You’ve GOT to be kidding: Look what Iran just said to the rest of the world about nukes

Standing before the assembly Monday, at the United Nations (that entity in New York that has provided almost no bang for our buck), Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Iavad Zarif lectured other countries and told them they need to dump all their plans to update or extend the shelf life of their atomic weapons. And there was the oh so predictable tirade against Israel, whom he labeled a “threat” to the region because they reportedly possess nuclear weapons — a fact which no one would even know for sure, had President Obama not decided to end a decades-long policy of keeping a lid on the information.

Zarif got to the real heart of the matter when, ” Speaking on behalf of the 120-nation Non-Aligned Movement, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told signatories to the 1970 nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) that there should be no limits on the transfer of nuclear technology and know-how to NPT signatories.” In other words, he wants his nuclear armed bubbas to be able to legally pass him all the ingredients for weapons and not have any blow back.

Let me get this straight; Zarif wants all the members of the NPT to disarm or down grade their programs, alleging that this is what they agreed to do as NPT members, but he then wants some of them to ignore the treaty when it comes to giving him the technology and material his country needs to start WWIII? He wants to have his yellow cake and eat it too!

As the Jerusalem Post reports, “We call upon the nuclear-weapon states to immediately cease their plans to further invest in modernizing and extending the life span of their nuclear weapons and related facilities,” Zarif said at the start of a month-long review conference taking stock of the NPT, the world’s benchmark disarmament treaty.”

“Reductions in deployments and in operational status cannot substitute for irreversible cuts in, and the total elimination of, nuclear weapons,” Zarif said.”

“He added that Iran and the other 117 non-aligned nations that are parties to the NPT are “deeply concerned by military and security doctrines of the nuclear-weapon states as well as that of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization,” which he said permits the use, or threat of use, of atomic weapons.+

So, having sharpened its hypocrisy to a fine edge, Iran now wants all members of the NPT to disarm while Iran has its nuclear arms program — I mean its peaceful civilian arms program — on a fast track. Not only that, but Zarif is using the microphone at the UN, the organization to which his country gives the third finger salute on a weekly basis — to call for other countries’ disarmament. I love these guys!

Iran exists in an alternate universe and it comes over to ours whenever it wants something, the UN is sort of like its portal for communicating with us. The problem is that Iran’s self awareness completely vaporizes in transit. It might have something to do with the whole “beaming them up” thing, not sure.

He is NOT ignoring the treaty, he’s saying EXACTLY what the treaty is based on, namely that nuclear states should share the benefits of peaceful nuclear technology in exchange for these countries agreeing not to acquire nuclear weapons and to reduce their own nukes with the goal of total elimination.

Iran is no position to be suggesting, dictating, or asking anything of any other state or the international community as a whole. It has hidden its nuclear ambitions and cheated on the agreements it has made for over a decade. Once Iran starts leading by example, maybe, and that’s a big maybe, others will take it seriously, until then, Iran should really just be quiet.

Can you name one country that has not cheated on agreements?

That’s not the relevant question. Can you name another country besides Iran and perhaps North Korea that on a daily basis calls for the destruction of another country? Is there another country out there that sponsors terrorism to the extent that Iran does…so an even more relevant question is: what right does Iran have to lecture anybody else?

I’m no fan of Iran, but let’s be fair here. The U.S. LIED to go to war and killed who knows how many innocent people in Iraq. By your logic, what right does the U.S. have to lecture anyone when it has recently pretty much actually destroyed a country?

The US didn’t “lie,” first Sadam Hussein use chemical weapons to kill his own people, the Kurds. Second, intelligence from around the entire world was used to make that decision and some 40 countries were on board with Bush’s “Coalition of the Willing.” Are you saying that 40 other countries also lied or that Bush was clever enough to trick all of them? There was an intelligence failure, no doubt, everybody gets that by now. But again, are you honestly comparing the US’s record with Iran’s? It’s like apples and oranges.

Saddam used chemical weapons in the 80’s-when he was an american ally(by the way, how many Vietnamese were burned by napalm used by the US?) The “coalition of the willing” was made using many incentives, debt relief or rescheduling for example. The US lied, pure and simple, the UN inspectors were telling anyone who would listen that Iraq is no threat. Like I said, I’m no fan of Iran, but it amuses me that a country which invented, has the greatest number of, and USED nukes is lecturing others on the subject.

You’re missing the point, all I’m saying is that Iran is the very last country in all the world that has any right to be at the UN lecturing anybody about nuclear weapons. And I don’t understand how that regime could lack self-awareness to that degree. Does the US have a perfect record of decision making and foreign policy successes? Of course not, but which country does? It’s all relative in international affairs. This is on the same level as if North Korea were lecturing the rest of the world about human rights…it would be just as big of a… Read more »

I guess I just don’t understand why you think it’s so hypocritical of Iran to state exactly what the non-proliferation treaty outlines.

I’d like to see Iran follow its own advice and adhere to its own standards that it has set for the rest of the world before it lectures anybody else. That’s all. Again, this is all relative, to compare Iran to the United States isn’t helpful. The two aren’t even on the same plane of existence. Iran has been a pariah state since 1979, the burden is on that country to demonstrate that it is ready to reengage the West in a meaningful and trustworthy fashion. Wagging its finger at the world from the UN just looks foolish, regardless of… Read more »

I guess I just disagree with you on the level of “evilness” of Iran. It has not invaded any country and I don’t think it contributes to instability in the Mid-east as much as is made out. In terms of comparison, in terms of domestic rights for its citizens, then yes the US is far ahead of Iran. However, in terms of international violence and bloodshed, I’d say the US has Iran beat by a fair margin.

No side will live up to it’s obligations. The winner will be the biggest liar. Then and only then truth shall be shed. Unfortunately millions will die needlessly. War is hell and man hasn’t learned jack. After this war it’s certain the only thing man will fight with will be sticks and stones.

Mainly believable. I’m agnostic, but the one-world government stuff is coming. For World Peace™ of course.
