US/EU/Israeli Anti-Iran Axis of Evil
by Stephen Lendman
With rare exceptions, colonized EU bloc countries march in lockstep with Washington's geopolitical agenda — even at the expense of their own interests.
The US and Israel long ago agreed to challenge Iran's nonexistent aim to develop nuclear weapons.
They're also allied against the Islamic Republic's legitimate ballistic missile development that's solely for self-defense.
A nonexistent Iranian threat was invented to unjustifiably justify US-led war on the country by other means.
Since taking office, Biden abandoned the idea of engaging with Iran diplomatically. Claims otherwise are fabricated — based on his actions since January 20.
He continues Trump's hardline policies, notably maximum failure that includes breaching international and US constitutional law.
No evidence suggests a change of what's going on.
Biden and hardliners around him invent reasons to continue endless US war on Iran by other means.
It's solely for its sovereign independence, its legitimate unwillingness to sacrifice its international law affirmed rights to US imperial interests.
Biden showed he's committed to continuing US forever wars by hot and other means against China, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, and other invented enemies.
No real ones existed since WW II ended.
Instead of reversing Trump's unlawful breach of the JCPOA, returning to compliance and lifting illegally imposed sanctions on Iran, Biden continues the same hostile agenda going nowhere.
He proved to Tehran that like Trump, he can never be trusted no matter what he or other regime officials say.
The US and E3 remain in noncompliance with their JCPOA obligations, not Iran.
Demanding that Tehran go along with their unacceptable demands wrecks the landmark agreement.
If they remain unbending that seems highly likely, the JCPOA will dissolve altogether — where things are heading.
During his Wednesday press briefing, Blinken spokesman Price continued his hostile to Iran drumbeat of Big Lies and mass deception like the following defiance of reality, saying:
"Iran distanced itself from several of these key constraints (sic). Its nuclear program has become more advanced (sic)."
"Its breakout time…to build a nuclear weapon (narrowed to a) handful of months (sic)."
No illicit Iranian nuclear program exists, no intent to develop nukes, no threats posed by the Islamic Republic to any countries.
Big Lies and mass deception by US, EU, and Israeli officials falsely claim otherwise.
On Wednesday, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh slammed Netanyahu's "bigoted lies" to push endless Iranophobia.
"Angry at losing his dupe in the White House," he continues his war of words on Iran by proliferating Big Lies, what he's done for years.
On Wednesday, Israeli war minister Benny Gantz pushed the Big Lie of an Iranian nuclear weapons threat, saying:
"The IDF is currently working to build up our forces and is preparing itself for any scenario, including one in which we would need to take action to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons" it abhors, doesn't seek and wants eliminated everywhere.
Like Netanyahu and other Israeli officials, Gantz failed to mention that Israel is the region's only nuclear armed and dangerous state.
Nor do Israeli or US media raise the taboo issue — even though there's no ambiguity about Israel's open secret, including about its chemical, biological, and other banned weapons programs.
Despite no Iranian threat, Gantz falsely claimed otherwise, saying:
The US and EU must "end (Iran's nonexistent) nuclear project (and include) longterm effective oversight and inspection, (along with) put(ting) a stop to Iranian entrenchment in Syria, Yemen and Iraq (sic)."
No Iranian program exists to develop and produce nukes or other banned weapons.
No nations may legally interfere in the internal affairs of others.
All nations may engage with others diplomatically.
They may legally aid allies defend against foreign aggressors or other illegal interference in their internal affairs.
Unlike serial lawbreakers USA, the EU bloc and Israel, Iran respects and complies with its international obligations, according to the rule of law.
Separately, Israeli foreign minister Gabi Ashkenzi falsely claimed that "the Iranian policy is a declaration of intent to continue developing hidden nuclear capabilities (sic)."
No matter how often the Big Lie is exposed and refuted, it refuses to die because US, EU, Israeli hardliners keep it alive to continue their hostile anti-Iran agenda.
There's no end to anti-Iran saber-rattling bluster and bluffs.
Israel wouldn't dare attack Iran without US permission and involvement.
If its territory is struck preemptively by a foreign aggressor, a stiff price will be paid.
The world community knows that Iran's legitimate nuclear program has no military component.
The Islamic Republic banned development of these weapons long ago.
Israel is a regional menace, the US and NATO global ones, not Iran.
According to an Axios report, the US and Israel established "a strategic working group on Iran" in 2009 after Obama/Biden met with Netanyahu.
The group is now headed by Biden's national security advisor Sullivan and his Netanyahu regime counterpart Meir Ben-Shabbat.
In the coming days, it'll convene to discuss "intelligence surrounding the Iranian nuclear program (sic)."
On Monday, Netanyahu met with war minister Gantz, foreign affairs minister Ashkenazi, and other regime national security and intelligence official to discuss engagement with their US counterparts on confronting a nonexistent Iranian threat.
Hardline US policy toward Iran shows no signs of softening.
If this policy continues in the coming weeks and months — what seems most likely — a window of opportunity for Biden to engage with Iran responsibly will be lost.
