The NYT Slams Sino/Iranian Partnership

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

The NYT earlier accused China and Iran of “defying (the) US” by negotiating a 25-year economic agreement it falsely called a “military partnership” as well as a trade deal.

As discussed in a same-day article, the historic agreement enhances economic and strategic ties between both nations at the expense of US imperial aims to weaken and undermine their development.

The Times is hostile to anything beneficial for nations free from US control.

According to international law, meddling in the internal affairs of other countries is strictly prohibited.

Yet it’s core policy for the US and its imperial partners, defying the rule of law.

No nations may legally interfere with the right of world community nations to engage with others politically, economically, financially, technologically, and militarily for self-defense against possible aggressors.

According to the Times, the Sino/Iranian agreement will “creat(e) new flashpoints with the US” — falsely implying they’re at fault for daring to defy US war on them by other means by advancing their own development.

Supporting US wars by hot and/or other means against nonbelligerent nations threatening no one, the Times opposes Sino/Iranian efforts to undercut US policies against them.

In return for large-scale Chinese investments in Iran, Beijing will have access to its vast oil reserves at discounted prices for the next 25 years.

The Times: The Sino/Iranian agreement “shows that…China feels it is in a position to defy the United States, powerful enough to withstand American penalties, as it has in the trade war waged by Trump” that continues under Biden.

Earlier, the State Department said the US “will continue to impose costs on Chinese companies that aid Iran,” falsely calling the country “the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism.”

Clearly, that dubious distinction applies to endless US wars OF terror, not on it.

They rage endlessly by hot and other means at home and abroad.

China and Iran foster peace and cooperative relations with other countries — polar opposite US rage for unchallenged global dominance, including by brute force.

Separately in response to the draft Sino/Iranian agreement, the State Department invented its own reality, falsely claiming:

“By allowing or encouraging Chinese companies to conduct sanctionable activities with (Iran) (sic), the Chinese government is undermining its own stated goal of promoting stability and peace (sic).”

Longstanding US policy aims to transform both countries — and other independent ones — into pro-Western vassal states ruled by US installed puppet regimes.

Instead of denouncing its imperial lawlessness, the Times and other establishment media provide press agent services for its dark forces.

The Times and other Western media oppose whatever benefits nations free from US control.

The mutually beneficial Sino/Iranian agreement to be formally agreed to on Saturday is strategically and economically important for both countries.

It’s why the US and its press agent media like the Times opposes it.
