Bashing Invented US Enemies

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Nations refusing to sell their soul to higher power in Washington are automatically considered threats to its national security at a time when its only enemies are invented.

No real ones existed throughout the post-WW II period so nations free from US control were reinvented as threats despite posing none to other countries.

US dark forces wouldn’t get away with their shenanigans if establishment media refused to go along.

Instead, they operate as press agents for powerful interests, cheerleading what demands condemnation.

Invented US enemies wage peace. They support cooperative relations with other nations, confrontation with none.

They comply with core international law principles.

In stark contrast, the US, its European allies and Israel are hostile to what just societies hold dear.

They partner with US war on invented enemies by hot and/or other means.

They’re flagrant law breakers, notably breaching key UN Charter principles.

Yet nary a critical word is said about their crimes of war, against humanity, and other wrongdoing by establishment media — supporting abuses of power instead of demanding accountability, according to the rule of law.

Opponent of journalism as it should be NYT has been a press agent to wealth, power, and privileged interests since the mid-19th century, especially in recent decades.

It’s been militantly hostile toward nonbelligerent Iran since it ended a generation of US-imposed tyranny in 1979.

Last week, an anti-Iran piece by its editors defied reality about US/Iranian relations as they’ve done many times before.

Discussing ongoing JCPOA talks in Vienna virtually certain to fail because whatever may be agreed to by the US and subservient E 3 nations can and almost certainly will be reversed with a stoke of the pen in their capitals at a time and for invented reasons of their choosing.

Claiming otherwise by the Times ignores reality.

Yet it continues pushing the nonexistent threat of an Iranian nuclear weapons program it never had, abhors, and wants eliminated worldwide before these WMDs eliminate us.

The Times: “(U)nless Israel and members of Congress get more assurances that Iran’s nuclear program will be peaceful (sic), the deal will always be at risk of unraveling under the pressure of Israeli attacks or new sanctions imposed by another American president.”

Some inconvenient facts the Times ignores along with no evidence of an Iranian nuclear threat include the following:

These nations alone are nuclear armed: the US, UK, France, Russia, China, India, Pakistan, North Korea and Israel.

Among them, the US, UK, France, Israel, as well as perhaps India and Pakistan, endanger humanity by possible use of these WMDs.

Yet not a critical word is mentioned by the Times or other establishment media.

Russia, China, and North Korea maintain these weapons because of threats to their security by the US and its imperial partners.

Their defensive stockpiles pose no threat to other nations because they wage peace, not war.

Over 50 world community nations use nuclear energy in about 220 reactors, according to world-nuclear.org, adding:

These reactors produce energy to supplement or in lieu of other sources. 

They’re also used to produce medical and industrial isotopes.

Except for nonthreatening North Korea and Iran, no other nations using nuclear power are criticized by other countries and/or establishment media.

Defying reality as it does time and again about invented US enemies, the Times called on Iran “to clear up lingering questions about its past nuclear work” that don’t exist.

In its annual assessments of possible threats to US security, its intelligence community cites no Iranian nuclear one because there is none.

As an NPT signatory, Iran has always complied fully with its principles.

The same goes for the JCPOA. Claims otherwise by the US, E 3, Israel, and establishment media are fabricated.

Why should abhorrent of nukes Iran alone among the world community of nations have to prove anything about its legitimate nuclear program to anyone.

At war on humanity USA, UK, France and Israel have lots of proving to do to nations threatened by their rage to dominate them.

Like many times before on invented US enemies, the Times turned truth on its head, claiming that “Iran has never come clean about (earlier) weapons-related nuclear work (sic)” — no evidence suggests was ever undertaken.

“International inspectors” found nothing suggesting a clandestine nuclear weapons program by Iran.

The Times lied suggesting otherwise.

No incriminating Israeli “documents” about an illicit Iranian program exist.

What Netanyahu earlier claimed was and remains fake news.

Israel has been nuclear armed and dangerous for decades.

IAEA inspectors aren’t allowed anywhere near its bomb development and production facilities.

Yet the Times and other US major media remain silent about what’s evident to the world community of nations — what poses a major threat to humanity.

Iran alone is singled out for (unjustifiable) criticism because it became free from US imperial control 42 years ago.

No nation is more intensively monitored by the IAEA than Iran.

Yet the Times defied reality by demanding that its ruling authorities should “let inspectors do their jobs (sic)” — while remaining silent about nuclear armed and dangerous Israel.

Unlike US-dominated Western nations, Israel, and their imperial partners, Iran complies with its international law obligations.

No evidence suggests otherwise, none suggesting a secret nuclear weapons program.

Instead of acknowledging it, Western nations, Israel, and their press agent media falsely accuse Iran and other independent nations from US control of all sorts of things they had nothing to do with.

What the Times called a JCPOA diplomatic breakthrough in 2015 was illusory as things turned out.

Its editors falsely called the landmark agreement “flawed (sic).” 

Its only flaw that matters is how easily the US was able to walk away — perhaps killing the deal.

If nonbelligerent Iran’s rights were respected by the US, West and Israel, no JCPOA deal ever would have been needed.

Because of its independence from US control, nonthreatening Iran has to prove what’s not asked of any other nations.

Because of unacceptable Biden regime demands no responsible government would accept, the JCPOA as unanimously approved by Security Council Res. 2231 is gone.

Even if restored in new form — what’s highly unlikely — the US can and most likely would walk away again as easily as in May 2018 for reasons as easily contrived as by Trump regime hardliners.

There’s no ambiguity about the bottom line.

The US can NEVER be trusted. Whatever it may agree to isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.

Good faith diplomatic outreach by Iran, China, Russia, and other nations free from its control is a waste of time — betrayal virtually certain to follow like every time before.

Instead of explaining the above reality, the Times and other establishment media falsely blame nations harmed by US ruthlessness for its high crimes committed against them.
