Int'l norms violated by US delisting of MKO

Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said the United States violated the international norms by removing the name of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as the MEK, NCR and PMOI) from the list of terrorist groups.

"The United States suddenly prepares a ground to strike the Monafeqin (Hypocrites, as they are called in Iran) grouplet from their terror list, and they, in fact, disrespected international norms and human criteria by such actions," Larijani told FNA on Sunday.

He said Washington's claims about war on terrorism as well as promotion of democracy and human rights are no more than empty words which meet no action. "As a matter of fact, they (Americans) are looking for servants to obey their orders and if then their actions fall in the domain of terrorism, they won't care."

"Americans took similar measures in Afghanistan and they continue doing so now," Larijani went on saying.

He said the US delisting of the MKO revealed once again to the Iranian nation that "Americans are an accomplice of those who assassinated Iran's leaders and our scholars".

Contradictions and Hypocrisy: Professor Obama lectures the Muslim world

On Sept. 25, Professor-turned President Barack Obama lectured the Muslim World and world leaders during his annual address before the United Nations.

The beautifully crafted speech of the Nobel peace laureate would have been believed - and better received - had it simply been genuine. The president's appeal for rejecting violence, spreading peace among nations, while emphasizing the vital use of diplomacy in international relations, as well as his call for respecting the rule of law, due process, and cultural understanding were remarkable. But unfortunately, they were simply not credible.

In his speech, the president admonished the Muslim World by underscoring the important belief that people must "resolve their differences peacefully" and that "diplomacy" should take "the place of war." Laudable words, but only if America practiced what it preaches.

In his seminal work A Century of U.S. Interventions, based on the Congressional Records and the Library of Congress' Congressional Research Services, Zoltan Grossman chronicled 133 U.S. military interventions by the most active military in the history of the world, between 1890 and 2001. Similarly, William Blum's study A Guide to the World's Only Superpower, covered 67 interventions between 1945 and 2000 that, according to him, resulted in the deaths of 13-17 million people. In his book The Fall of the U.S. Empire - And Then What?, European intellectual Johan Galtung listed 161 incidents of American overt political violence between 1945 and 2001, including 67 military interventions, 25 bombings, 35 political assassinations (or attempted ones), 11 foreign countries that were assisted with torture, and 23 interferences with elections or the political process abroad. And all that was before the 9/11 attacks.

Revealed: Army scientists secretly sprayed St Louis with 'radioactive' particles for YEARS to test chemical warfare technology

The United States Military conducted top secret experiments on the citizens of St. Louis, Missouri, for years, exposing them to radioactive compounds, a researcher has claimed.

While it was known that the government sprayed 'harmless' zinc cadmium silfide particles over the general population in St Louis, Professor Lisa Martino-Taylor, a sociologist at St. Louis Community College, claims that a radioactive additive was also mixed with the compound.

She has accrued detailed descriptions as well as photographs of the spraying which exposed the unwitting public, predominantly in low-income and minority communities, to radioactive particles.

David Hicks forced to take high drug doses in Guantanamo

David Hicks in Sydney recently.
Guantanamo Bay detainees, including David Hicks, were forced to take high dosages of anti-malaria drug mefloquine despite showing no signs of the disease, a practice likened to ''pharmacological waterboarding'' by a US military doctor.

Questions have been raised about whether the mass administration of the drug to detainees was a secret, illegal experiment after a medical journal article last month by an army doctor, Major Remington Nevin, highlighted the ''inappropriate use'' of the drug and asked if its use had been motivated by the drug's psychotic side effects.

The US Centres for Disease Control issued a warning against the use of mefloquine on anyone suffering psychiatric disturbances or having a previous history of depression. Dr Nevin also warned high doses of the drug could cause brain injuries.

Mr Hicks has long claimed he was drugged against his will. Evidence including previously secret reports and witnesses including a Guantanamo guard and New York lawyer Josh Dratel support Mr Hicks' claims.

U.S. forcibly drugged all Guantanamo prisoners with scopolamine

New evidence has emerged that all Guantanamo Bay detainees, including David Hicks, were drugged involuntarily with a substance that has a long history as a truth serum.

Recently declassified US documents revealing medical procedures have shown that scopolamine was administered to all detainees taken to the Cuban detention centre.

The documents, which were standard operating procedures for nursing staff, were obtained by the independent US news outlet Truthout, and reveal that the rationale for the drug's use on all detainees was to prevent motion sickness.

However, US military experts have said that scopolamine is not recommended for motion sickness because of its severe side effects.

Iran's Imminent Nuclear Weapon

© Stuff.co.nz
Here's some context behind the claims that Iran will imminently possess a nuclear weapon.

It started a long time ago (but not, unfortunately, in a galaxy far, far away):
1984: Soon after West German engineers visit the unfinished Bushehr nuclear reactor, Jane's Defence Weekly quotes West German intelligence sources saying that Iran's production of a bomb "is entering its final stages."US Senator Alan Cranston claims Iran is seven years away from making a weapon.
Seven years away? And did they have a bomb in 1991?
1992: Israeli parliamentarian Binyamin Netanyahu tells his colleagues that Iran is 3 to 5 years from being able to produce a nuclear weapon - and that the threat had to be "uprooted by an international front headed by the US."

1992: Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres tells French TV that Iran was set to have nuclear warheads by 1999. "Iran is the greatest threat and greatest problem in the Middle East," Peres warned, "because it seeks the nuclear option while holding a highly dangerous stance of extreme religious militancy."

1992: Joseph Alpher, a former official of Israel's Mossad spy agency, says "Iran has to be identified as Enemy No. 1." Iran's nascent nuclear program, he told The New York Times, "really gives Israel the jitters."
So was there a bomb by the late 1990s?
1995: The New York Times conveys the fears of senior US and Israeli officials that "Iran is much closer to producing nuclear weapons than previously thought" - about five years away - and that Iran's nuclear bomb is "at the top of the list" of dangers in the coming decade. The report speaks of an "acceleration of the Iranian nuclear program," claims that Iran "began an intensive campaign to develop and acquire nuclear weapons" in 1987, and says Iran was "believed" to have recruited scientists from the former Soviet Union and Pakistan to advise them.

1997: The Christian Science Monitor reports that US pressure on Iran's nuclear suppliers had "forced Iran to adjust its suspected timetable for a bomb. Experts now say Iran is unlikely to acquire nuclear weapons for eight or 10 years."
So now we're looking at a nuclear-armed Iran by 2007. Scary stuff, right?
2007: President Bush warns that a nuclear-armed Iran could lead to "World War III." Vice President Dick Cheney had previously warned of "serious consequences" if Iran did not give up its nuclear program.

2007: A month later, an unclassified National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran is released, which controversially judges with "high confidence" that Iran had given up its nuclear weapons effort in fall 2003.

June 2008: Then-US Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton predicts that Israel will attack Iran before January 2009, taking advantage of a window before the next US president came to office.

May 2009: US Senate Foreign Relations Committee reports states: "There is no sign that Iran's leaders have ordered up a bomb."
And Iran still doesn't have a bomb today - all of those reports, all of that scaremongering and warmongering was wrong. Both the CIA and Mossad agree that there is no specific evidence that Iran is working on nuclear weapons today. And many experts believe that even if Iran were working on a bomb it could take up to ten to fifteen years.

The 2012 Collective Shift & the Secret History of End-Times Prophecies

With the advent of the internet came the Information Age, where it has become possible to spread and find information about almost anything with unparalleled ease and convenience - information that, as little as a couple decades ago, would have been extremely difficult if not impossible for most people to obtain. More data than any one of us could ever assimilate is now at our fingertips, and news of most global events is available practically instantaneously. Where information is suppressed, it finds its way to the surface, sooner rather than later. We carry the internet around with us in super-powerful laptop computers and handheld devices, and culturally, in our everyday lives, we now spend more time online than not, whether for work or leisure.

Everything is plugged in! In a relatively short time-frame, our global society has become a vast network of information movers, like a giant brain network, processing and sharing data with our counterparts within this greater body of humanity. It's no wonder our collective paradigm is shifting and it's no wonder the deepest patterns of our subconscious/archetypal makeup - understood as ancient mystery teachings and prophecies, tales of power and spiritual allegories, epic adventure stories and legends of old - have emerged in the forefront of our consciousness, becoming compelling topics of interest.

Fear of war or food shortages? Iran quietly makes massive wheat buy

Paris/Hamburg - Iran's state grains agency GTC has discreetly snapped up around 1 million tonnes of milling wheat in the past 2 weeks mostly from the European Union, traders said on Thursday, showing increased ability to import food despite financial sanctions.

Iran has in the past exported wheat but Western sanctions aimed at its disputed nuclear programme coincided with a bad harvest, forcing the country to quietly enter global markets and make substantial wheat purchases to feed its large population. While sanctions don't target food shipments, they make it difficult for importers to obtain letters of credit or conduct international transfers of funds through banks.

"They are buying bigger volumes than what was expected, they have big needs...," one trader said, adding European origin was currently the most attractive.

Assange-Mossad ties unveiled

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange
The aftermath of the last world altering months may mean life or death, war or peace for millions, perhaps the entire world. Real conflict in Syria, the attempts by others to expand regional conflicts, tribal feuds and ethnic rivalries into war of aggression is becoming openly recognized, perhaps for the first time in history.

Since the days of Machiavelli, war through deception has been the rule but the information age has made deception a more powerful tool than ever imagined.

Perhaps it is time the tables were turned and the "deceivers" were to receive some of the recognition they have, for so long, been denied.

Today's story will involve Julian Assange, Wikileaks, Israel, and the Mossad. Along with Netanyahu, Assange has tried to insert his way into the American election on the side of a losing candidate whose platform is simply war with Iran. Some explanation is needed.

His recent statement, theoretically to the United Nations, one attacking President Obama, always sparing any mention of Israel or the rights of the Palestinian people, are cheap showmanship, utter lies and a form of "holocaust flag waving" he learned from Netanyahu.

Mossad organized attack on US consulate in Libya: Analyst

An American military analyst says the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad, organized the attack on the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi, Press TV reports.

Israeli forces produced the anti-Islam film, released it and led the attacks against the US consulate in Benghazi, Gordon Duff said in an interview with Press TV on Friday.

US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans were killed on September 11, when rocket-propelled grenades were fired on the US consulate in the eastern Libyan city.

The incident took place while a group of people held a demonstration against an anti-Islam movie produced in the United States.
"The attacks against the US consulate in Benghazi were, we believe, stimulated, paid for and organized by Israel's Mossad and they had nothing to do [with the Libyan people]," he added.
Referring to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Thursday, Duff argued that "it is unusual hearing someone as radical and extremist as Netanyahu talk about others."
