Iran: Mutually Assured Contention

U.S./West Cold War strategy secretly equipped Israel with nuclear capabilities the purpose of which was to direct a stand-off threat toward the U.S.S.R. It should then come as no surprise that Russia would look for the same facility, with the help of various not-so-black vesicles, to counter the move.
The great Danger accompanying Mr. Obama’s myopia is twofold (primarily):
(1) he’s hopelessly anchored to a virulent contempt for U.S. Military-Intelligence-backed hegemony.
(2) he and his coterie are completely ill-equipped to grasp the ultra-frenetic weave of cross-purpose-interests that defines the malignancy that is the geo-political-economic sewer.
Although I am fully convinced that Mr. Obama’s firmly corrupted intent is to lie waste to the U.S. socio-political structure, I do not believe he intends to walk the planet into a nuclear confrontation. However, mutually assured contention, as we continue to experience, easily overrides rational thought and always at the expense of the American people’s best interests. The so-called Iran Nuke Deal is, in every way, an affirmation and a predictable extension of this “great danger.”
The following are a select group of responses to questions/comments received after the original article was published. We believe you will find them of interest.
#1: As we stated at the time of the red-line breach of Assad (Syria), met by yet another non-response from the U.S. Administration, it is “…inevitable that in the not too distant future we will see Iran move to fill the vacuum created by the U.S. absence; this will be most visible as Iran works to topple unstable U.S.-backed regimes in Iraq, Yemen and Qatar. A move, by Iran, in this direction will bring the threat to the doorsteps of Saudi Arabia which, due to the absent American presence, will force a military response by the Saudi’s and into a direct confrontation with Iran. The U.S. has a security agreement that guarantees an American Military Response to a direct threat aimed at Saudi Arabia. If Mr. Obama takes the same foreign policy approach he applied to Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and Egypt then that will leave one last man standing; Israel.”  
#2: In this single point there is no excess in any efforts to emphasize that, in no way, can Iran or any other country, be permitted to develop or possess militarized nuclear capabilities.  To do so, particularly in any volatile region, is to allow the proliferation of a regional and global threat that cannot be contained.
#3: There is yet another point that needs mention as well: What of the security risks to those countries within reach of an Iranian nuclear tipped ICBM? If this country would challenge any Nation posing a threat to its existence then how, in good faith/conscience, can this Nation’s people stand idly by when their representatives license, by their actions, a direct threat to a defenseless people?  We will continue, in ways too numerous to count, to pay a price for our self-imposed tolerance.

Iran: Is it all about staging?

Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, Shia/Shiite stability threat, regional threat, navigational threat (Persian Gulf), Russia/China satellite, a thallic sense of integrity particularly where infidels are concerned, the fact that Iran already possesses the technology and capability. If it is, principally, merely a discussion over “suspension” and not “elimination” then, if only to pen a few examples of the painfully conspicuous, the question still remains: Why a Deal with Iran and is the scheme even possible?

Congress: Suffering Fools

National policy should be the domain of the whole of the U.S.; argued and articulated within the confines of the American public and the wagering of their elected officials. To telegraph or appeal, directly, internal policy disputes to an adversary are not a display of strength but a peevish display of weakness.
The only characterization describing the condition of mind consuming 47 U.S. Senators (all Republicans), at the moment, is brazen stupidity. All they needed to have done was educate the public of the risks and dangers (factually and without hyperbole), urge them to express their concerns to their elected officials and sit back and watch the Administration create yet another Foreign Policy failure. Now, along with the entire U.S. Administration and the negotiating team, all they’ve done is elevate the level of shame and further destroy the Influence Capital of the U.S. Ensuring that the U.S. will be forced into a military confrontation with Iran and even worse, a surrogate battle with Russia; suffering fools.
Where the U.K. had only one Neville Chamberlain the American people have a great majority of 435 Members of Congress leading a National Death-March meanwhile the Administration simulates their notion of National Stewardship no different than a group of community organizers fighting over a federal grant. Their failure; your price!
The following are a select group of responses to questions/comments received after the original article was published. We believe you will find them of interest.
#1: What if? Now there is one scenario that needs considering: The entire scheme is merely an effort to draw Iran into a false euphoria; pull them into a battle in Iraq and on into Syria in an effort to expose their military chain of command and hopefully draw ISIS into Iran.
Yes, I know it may seem extreme, but one rule never to be broken when analyzing foreign policy, is to avoid at all costs, filtering a perspective thru your own regime of thought. No one, not Russia, China, E.U. or Middle-East States want to see Iran nuclear so then why has it been so difficult to obtain a Global Consensus on prohibiting that from occurring? Here’s why; the Threat of a Nuclear-Armed Iran is a far more effective form of leverage than the bomb itself.

A Shelved Nuclear Solution

The bias toward the continued and uninterrupted use of the highly volatile and extremely low-efficiency Uranium-based reactors is an extension of this Nations weapons development programs and profitability demands of Multi-Nationals GE and Westinghouse.
Despite the obvious and expanding risk of catastrophic events (3-Mile Island, Chernobyl and most recently Fukushima) as well as the aging and increasingly problem-plagued inventory of aging U.S. Reactors – nearly half of the 104 reactors are over 30 years old – it is unlikely that these powerful influences are going to release their hold and move on to a safe, efficient and environmentally neutral power source. The Thorium-Based Reactor, technically known as a Molten-Salt Reactor (MSR), was developed by nuclear physicists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory thru the leading efforts of Administrator Alvin Weinberg.
His simplicity-by-design MSR set records for continuous problem-free operation while his continued advocacy for increased nuclear safety and development of MSR’s won him early termination by the Nixon Administration in 1971 and the entire program was shelved. While the U.S. naps, China has taken the Weinberg research moving fast-forward with its own development program. It’s so very difficult to fathom that this Nation would willingly cede an advantage of its own making (and one with numerous environmental and economic benefits) to the inbred presumption that we must first serve the interests of an economic complex. One that preys upon a people whose personal industry subsidizes its very existence.
This kind of stupidity has no half-life and will continue until it is forced out of the equation.  If the topic interests you then I recommend reading the following article and watching the imbedded video contained therein.
