Obama's duplicity as he claims to want to make a deal with the Iranian government while using any tools he can to interfere in the country's ostensibly peaceful nuclear power development. Just another reason for Iran and other Middle Eastern nations to seek development of better technology including nuclear weapons so they are not at the mercy of the over militarized American Empire which does not respect the sovereignty of any nation which does not kow tow to the United States of America. Obama believes what is good for America and American corporations no matter how self-serving and corrupt.
Report: Obama Ordered Attacks On Iran's Nuclear Program : Information Clearing House
June 01, 2012 "Haaretz." -- -- Shortly after taking office in 2009, U.S. President Barack Obama secretly ordered sophisticated attacks on the computer systems that control Iran's nuclear enrichment facilities, the New York Times reported. According to the report, Obama decided to expand attacks that had begun during the George W. Bush administration. The report said that the Stuxnet worm, the existence of which became public in 2010, was developed by the United States and Israel as part of a joint effort to sabotage the Iranian nuclear program.
Obama reportedly decided that cyber attacks should continue, even after Stuxnet was publicized. According to the report, internal Obama administration estimates show that the sabotage effort set the Iranian nuclear program back 18 months to two years, but many experts, both in and out of government, are skeptical of this assessment.
The report comes almost a week after the internet security company Kaspersky Lab announced that it had uncovered a 'cyber-espionage worm' designed to collect and delete sensitive information, primarily in Middle Eastern countries. Kaspersky called the malware, named "Flame," the "most sophisticated cyber-weapon yet unleashed." It said the bug had infected computers in Iran, the West Bank, Sudan, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
It is rather hypocritical of Washington or NATO to condemn another nation because a number of civilian deaths occurred during an attack on enemy combatants since the US and NATO have been involved in numerous massacres in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and do nothing when other countries such as Bahrain go out and slaughter dissidents, protesters, unarmed innocent civilians.
Under George Bush and under Obama there has been an ongoing cover-up and Media blitz to dismiss or downplay or just plainly lying to defend US and NATO troops slaughtering of Muslims in their extension of the bloody Christian /Western Crusades to crush all resistance by Muslims or Arabs or even Persians(Iranians).
Evwen Obama appears to believe that the anger over American military interventions is really just a Public Relations matter and the innocent blown to kingdom come be damned.
In Iraq alone the number of dead Iraqis is somewhere around a million but we are told they were all "Terrorists" and each was a threat to America and Western Civilization.Or the officials and the media collude by underestimating the number of civilians killed as in "collateral Damage' or a matter of sectarian or tribal violence. Even though it is apparent the American military's strategy at times was the British strategy of divide and conquer by sowing the seeds of suspicion and discontent against those who are seen as somehow different because of religion or customs or ancient blood feuds and a bit of good old fashioned racism.
In part it is America's racist view of the peoples and nations of the world which gives them the right to treat all non-Americans as being at the very least not as good as an average American if not quite a bit less deserving of equality or the rights granted to all of humanity except those the Americans hate, distrust, or patronize.
As Madame Allbright was dismissive of the half a million Iraqi children who died during America's draconian sanctions which were inhumane and basically genocidal treatment of the Iraqi people.
Or Condoleezza Rice's* infamous observation that the deaths of hundreds of thousands in Iraq or the butchery in Gaza by the Israelis was just a matter of the birth pangs of bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East.
The Americans have been tasking part in massacres on American soil since British colonial period and into the 18th and 19th centuries slaughtering Native Americans because they didn't fit into America's own sense of it's God Ordained right to conquer as much of the land belonging to Native Peoples as they could. The supposedly freedom loving democracy promoting believers supposedly in the "Rights of Man" enslaved millions of black people to make themselves rich . Most of the other colonial nations such as France, Portugal, Spain were no better slaughtering and enslaving aboriginal peoples from the artic circle down to the tip of South America.
When You Hear About Massacres, Reach For Your Truth Detector When is a massacre a massacre, and how can we find truth in the fog of intense war propaganda? By Danny Schechter June 01, 2012 "Information Clearing House"
-- That’s a question that is being raised anew in the aftermath of the dreadful Hula massacre. The sight of dead children and torn bodies on the ground in Syria offers up sickening images that have already led to new calls for international military intervention, expulsions of Syrian diplomats, UN condemnations and self righteous finger pointing at the government in Damascus that denies responsibility with claims that most of the western media has rejected.
It’s hard to argue that an atrocity has occurred, what with 90 civilians slaughtered including 25 children.
Western governments seemed to make coordinated comments heaping all the blame on Syria.
The story was initially framed by western governments. UK Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt said, "We are appalled at what appears to be credible reports that the Syrian regime has been responsible for the deaths of 92 civilians in Houla, including 32 children. The UN Head of Mission has been able to confirm the numbers and also that artillery tank shells have been used. If this is the case then it's an act of pure, naked savagery and we condemn it in the most strongest possible terms."
The American journalist Russ Baker began sounding a note of caution on his
“We keep getting reports of atrocities committed by the Syrian government. Those reports may well be accurate. But the truth is usually a bit more complicated in war zones. If news organizations don’t start adopting a higher standard for their reports, another Libyan-style intervention, complete with massive bombing and untold civilian casualties, may be inevitable.
The news out of Syria gets more and more appalling. But so does the quality of the journalism.”
He then cited conflicting reports by different media organizations, noting:
“All these reports were based almost entirely on the word from activists on one side in the conflict, not from journalists or neutral observers. That is not journalism. Why are there not more journalists actually in these places reporting? In the past, reporters always managed to get into conflict zones. And, notwithstanding Syrian government controls on access to these areas and the obvious physical dangers attendant to work in such places, news organizations should be able to hire Syrians who will be diligent, careful and precise.”
He reported that the BBC was already backing down from the categorical blame it had heaped on Damascus, writing:
“But at whose hands they died remains a matter of contention.”
Many news stories implied that Syria was interfering with the UN’s peacekeepers even as Kofi Anan said, “In my meeting with the president, I expressed appreciation for the cooperation that the Syrian government had extended to the UN, enabling us to deploy the military observers quickly.”
While the Assad government is being denounced for using artillery against civilian areas, Norwegian UN monitors reported that “corpses had been found with their hands tied behind their backs and signs that some had been shot in the head from close range.”
Anti-war groups cite this evidence to suggest that armed militants - perhaps including foreign Jihadis known to be operating in Syria - are committing massacres to encourage foreign involvement, like the role played by NATO in Libya that brought down the Gadaffy regime which has now been replaced by a more Islamic political presence.
* "Birth Pangs" Condoleezza Rice:
Condi like George Bush and President Obama think the deaths of thousands and even hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians is just part of the process of bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East.
Many Americans were duped into believing President Obama would no longer wage war on the rest of the world but they and we were wrong.
: see for instance at Time.com,"Condi in Diplomatic Disneyland" By TONY KARON Wednesday, July 26, 2006
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice faced a thankless, all but impossible task in trying to sell the Arab world on the U.S. policy of delaying a cease-fire so that the Israeli military can continue its anti-Hizballah campaign. But her case was hardly helped when she explained that the violence that has already killed more than 400 Lebanese and turned more than a half million into refugees represents the "birth pangs of a new Middle East." Phrases like that — and her rejection of the call for an immediate cease-fire on the grounds that "whatever we do, we have to be certain that we're pushing forward to the new Middle East, not going back to the old Middle East" — carry a revolutionary ring that scares the hell out of America's allies in the region. It was revolutionaries like Lenin and Mao, after all, who rationalized violence and suffering as the wages of progress, in the way a doctor might rationalize surgery — painful, bloody, even risking the life of the patient, but ultimately necessary. Social engineering is not surgery, however, and its victims find little comfort in the homilies of its authors.
Arab leaders, moreover, have learned to be suspicious of Rice's revolutionary ambitions — just a year ago, she spoke of spreading "creative chaos" in the region. Iraq, after all, is Exhibit A of the Bush Administration's "New Middle East," and it's a bloody mess that is growing worse by the day. Now, for Act 2, the Arabs are being told to sit quietly while Israel tears Lebanon apart, after months of watching it slowly throttle Gaza through a U.S.-backed economic blockade, and then bomb it for weeks on end. Hardly surprising that the Arabs — from the U.S.-backed autocrats to the beleaguered liberal democrats and the rising Islamists — see little to cheer in the Bush Administration's "new Middle East."
Rice's midguided revolutionary rhetoric is only one of the mistakes the Secretary of State made on her ill-fated mission to the MIdeast. Some other lessons the Administration will need to absorb quickly from its crash course in Middle East diplomacy:
Diplomacy means not only talking about your adversaries, but also talking to them
And from AlJazeera:
Rice Sees Bombs As Birth Pangs By Aljazera 07/22/06 via Information Clearing House
"Aljazeera" -- -- Condoleezza Rice has described the plight of Lebanon as a part of the "birth pangs of a new Middle East" and said that Israel should ignore calls for a ceasefire.
"This is a different Middle East. It's a new Middle East. It's hard, We're going through a very violent time," the US secretary of state said.
"A ceasefire would be a false promise if it simply returns us to the status quo.
"Such a step would allow terrorists to launch attacks at the time and terms of their choosing and to threaten innocent people, Arab and Israeli, throughout the region."
She was speaking on Saturday after meeting with members of a United Nations team that had just returned from the region.
More than 300 Lebanese civilians have been killed in 11 days of Israeli air and artillery strikes against Hezbollah, the armed Lebanese Shia group.
The present round of fighting between Israel and Hezbollah broke out after Hezbollah kidnapped two Israeli soldiers in a cross-border raid on July 12.
Rice will travel to the Middle East some time next week. Her itinerary has not yet been announced.
Call for negotiations
Hezbollah has offered to release the two soldiers if Israel frees Palestinian prisoners held by Israel.
But Israel has said that Hezbollah must release the soldiers unconditionally and says that it will not halt its offensive until Lebanon implements UN resolution 1559 and disarms Hezbollah.
For more insight into the mental acrobatics of Condoleezza Rice and others in positions of power. She had no problem defending torture nor did Karl Rove, Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney, John Yoo all of whom would be in prison if President Obama was a man of integrity.
But of course these are well educated snake oil sales persons who to defend their beliefs they decide on their own which techniques of interrogation are torture even those these techniques are all characterized over the last few centuries and then codified into law as being forms of torture. Even language becomes another tool to be used and distorted word made to convey meanings they were never meant to.
Condi Must Go!
