U.N. still hopeful about Iran’s nuclear intent

with one comment

The International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei, speaking at a joint news conference in Tehran with Iran’s top nuclear official, said Sunday there is a “shifting of gears” in Iran’s confrontation with the West to more cooperation and transparency and he announced that international inspectors would visit Tehran’s newly revealed uranium enrichment site on Oct. 25.

“I see that we are at a critical moment. I see that we are shifting gears from confrontation into transparency and cooperation,” said ElBaradei.

“As I have said many times and I continue to say today, the agency has no complete proof that there is an ongoing weapons program in Iraq,” ElBaradei said. “There are allegations that Iran has conducted weaponization studies. However these allegations we are still looking into and we are looking to Iran to help us clarify,” he added.

The U.N. failed to learn from lessons given by Iraq, N.Korea and Syria

Owing to the nature of the U.N., the organization is not capable of learning from past experience. As a result it is doomed to repeat past failures. The situation with Iran and her nuclear ambitions mirror those of Iraq, North Korea and Syria.

If history is any teacher we can expect the U.N. to allow Iran to buy needed time to complete her program by continuing to engage in “encouraging talks” which always leave U.N. participants “cautiously optimistic”.

At the end of this trail is a nuclear armed Iran with a new set of toothless resolutions and fruitless sanctions with associated condemnation of any attempts by Israel to defend herself.
