An interesting piece on Dr. Mohamed El Baradei appears in The NY Times today:
“Dr. ElBaradei, who is 65, seems unfazed, even energized, by all the dissent. He alludes to a sense of destiny that has pressed him into the role of world peacemaker. He has called those who advocate war against
“crazies,” and in two long recent interviews described himself as a “secular pope” whose mission is to “make sure, frankly, that we do not end up killing each other.” Iran
Those that advocate “war” and seemingly anything that actually gets in the way of
Day in, day out they spout. For decades
“Despite Iran’s long history of nuclear deception, Dr. ElBaradei’s supporters cite his vindication on Iraq — no evidence of an active Iraqi nuclear program has been found — as reason to listen to him now.
This “disastrous war” is in part to draw a wedge in the region. This “disastrous war” is one of the things we have going for us with this Iranian situation.
Many of those that do not support El Baradei and his failed efforts is best represented by this, from John Bolton:
“He’s naïve and idiosyncratic and that amounts to being dangerous. His argument for years was that he could talk
out of being a nuclear threat. Then it was, ‘O.K., we’ll just let them experiment.’ Now it’s, ‘you’re never going to get them to give up.’” Iran
In May, following VP Cheney’s statement from an aircraft carrier of the Iranian coast that the U.S. was prepared to use naval power to prevent Iran from ‘“gaining nuclear weapons and dominating this region,”’ El Baradei offered this matter of fact quip:
“The fact of the matter is that one of the purposes of suspension — keeping them from getting the knowledge — has been overtaken by events.”
Which at the time, DeMediacratic Nation noted:
“Missing from El Baradei is any sense of irony that he and his cohorts are the very ones responsible for the events outpacing talks.”
The international community, whether represented by the U.N. or not may be starting to see things differently as
should be allowed to enrich uranium for power generation provided there is close monitoring by U.N. inspectors to ensure it is not trying to develop atomic weapons.” Iran
Inspection and negotiations has gained nothing, but more time and the furthering of the Iranian “peaceful nuke” program. Agreements made, whether made will be more advantageous for
The past 30 years has seen the patient implementation of the Islamic Republic’s aim toward domination of the region. Following the Gulf War their nuclear program began after they surmised Hussein would not have had to leave
From Presidents Carter to President W. Bush, administrations have failed to take
Continuing on as we are will not prevent
Knowing what is what and having knowledge of the truth is difficult enough these days, in part due to the media’s naïve flair for missing the real story. If the international community does not get its act together and work in unison along the economic and sanctions line; one tactic will remain (if it isn’t already too late) and that will be military. At that point all the previous history of our difficulties with
