The leader of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has rightfully called on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to suspend America for constantly threatening to use nuclear weapons against  his country and other states;  and his bold stance could be a significant opportunity for the non-European world to stand up to western terrorism.

The leader of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called on the IAEA to suspend America after its constant threats to use nuclear weapons against Iran and other states.

Ahmadinejad argued at the two-day nuclear disarmament conference hosted by Tehran that America was the only country to have committed an atomic crime against Japan when they bombed the citizens of Hiroshima and Nagasaki killing 200,000 people.

Ahmadinejad was particularly angry that in recent months the US government has threatened Iran with a nuclear strike should they continue with their nuclear programme to acquire an alleged nuclear weapon.

He pointed out that the structure of IAEA and Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT) was undemocratic and called for a fairer body where Latin America, Asia and Africa had the right to veto decisions made by the powerful members such as the US and Europe.

Nuclear deception

The contradictions of the NPT are obvious, five members of this treaty are nuclear powers, they are the United Kingdom, France, Russia and China. The irony of this treaty is that while countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America are encouraged not to develop nuclear weapons, countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom reserve the right to use nuclear weapons against their enemies. The NPT effectively leaves non-western countries powerless to defend themselves against imperialist ambitions by the leading world powers. It is arguably a great deception to mislead countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America so that they remain at the mercy of the west.

Just like in the run up to the war in Iraq the mainstream media, the US government and the Pentagon are releasing a string of press releases to build a case for attacking Iran, and just like the war in Iraq, the case they are building is a lie. A lie spun to ensure that the US controls the vast energy resources and strategic locations in that region.

One such lie occurred when the Obama administration along with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and French President Nicolas Sarkozy announced in September 2009 that Iran had a nuclear enrichment facility in the city of Qum, what the media did not tell the public was that Iranians had themselves revealed this. (Kimberley: Global Research: April 2010)

Another aspect of the media’s drive to deceive the public into accepting war with Iran is the fact that the obvious economic interests to the west is left out of reports.

In a Global Research website report on March 18, 2010, Finian Cunningham said, “Critics have long suspected that the real reason for US and other western military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan is to control the Central Asian energy corridor.”

Natural gas is set to become the key fuel resource for the world economy and the Middle East contains the bulk of those resources with Iran being the leading country in that region with the largest gas reserves.

Once again the media is beating the drums of war with lies and unsubstantiated Pentagon sources to gear the public up for an attack on Iran, and once again many people will be duped.

Ahmadinejad rightfully called for America to be suspended from the IAEA, this is unlikely to happen simply because just as with the United Nations international bodies serves the interests of the powerful.

What could be significant however, is if the non-European world support Iran and call for countries like the United States to be held accountable for their crimes. Unfortunately, united action like this is still a dream.
