Promoting Phony Biden Regime Outreach to Iran
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Throughout its 42 year history, US policy toward Iran has been all about regime change — wanting lost control of the country, its resources and people in 1979 regained.
Everything the US threw at Iran failed.
In 1980, Jimmy Carter’s national security advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski orchestrated what became nearly eight years of devastating Iran/Iraq war.
Hundreds of thousands were killed on both sides. US war by other means followed from then to now.
As long as Iran remains free from US control, normalized relations will remain out of reach.
Since taking office a month ago, Biden and hardliners surrounding him continue failed maximum pressure.
Unlawful Trump regime sanctions remain in place with no indication of lifting them.
Iran is considered an enemy of the West — solely for its sovereign independence, not for any threat it poses.
Repeated claims otherwise and related ones are fabricated.
No US-led Western outreach to Iran with good intentions exists — nor has it since its liberating revolution.
US policy toward Iran seeks compliance with its imperial demands — offering nothing in return but empty promises to be broken like always before.
The NYT claims otherwise. Like other establishment media, it provides press agent services for the national security state, Wall Street, and other corporate interests.
It’s hostile to journalism the way it’s supposed to be, truth and full disclosure on major issues banned in its daily editions.
On Friday, it falsely claimed that Biden seeks “to restart nuclear talks with Iran (sic),” adding:
The US “took a major step on Thursday toward restoring the Iran nuclear deal ( sic) that the Trump administration abandoned, offering to join European nations in what would be the first substantial diplomacy with Tehran in more than four years (sic).”
Time and again, the Times invents its own fabricated reality.
US diplomatic outreach to Iran as it should be was never on the table and isn’t now.
Banned by Trump and hardliners surrounding him, Biden regime policies toward Iran follow a similar pattern.
As discussed in same day articles, so-called US outreach aims for Iranian compliance with its unacceptable demands in return for empty promises to be broken like always before.
The above is standard operating procedure by the US toward all nations free from its control.
Under Republicans and Dems, the US remains implacably hostile toward Iran.
No evidence suggests a change of policy ahead.
If Biden was serious about engaging with Iran diplomatically according to the rule of law, he’d rejoin the JCPOA with no pre-conditions and lift unlawfully imposed Trump regime sanctions — both steps as a show of good faith.
Instead, he and hardliners around him falsely suggest that legitimate actions taken by Iran lower its threshold for developing nukes.
Iran is falsely accused of all sorts of things unjustifiably. Ignored is its compliance with the rule of law, its cooperative outreach to other countries, seeking confrontation with none.
The US and E3 are in breach of its JCPOA obligations, not Iran.
In the Middle East and Central Asia, Washington and its imperial partners continue forever wars of aggression against invented enemies.
It continues all-out war on Iran by other means with no signs of backing off.
The Times ignored all of the above while reinventing Biden’s agenda toward Iran.
Saying he and E3 counterparts seek “to restore the 2015 nuclear accord with Iran” is belied by their actions.
Instead of setting the record straight, the Time blamed Iran for hostile US policies that show no signs of changing.
Saying it’s it’s “unclear whether the Iranians would agree to join discussions” — citing its customary use of anonymous sources — the Times ignored Iran’s willingness to engage with all nations willing to be part of good faith diplomacy.
The US goes the other way, why engaging with its officials by Iran and other nations free from its control is an exercise in futility.
Betrayal always follows. As for the JCPOA, Biden regime actions show no intention of rejoining the agreement as affirmed by Security Council Res. 2231.
They want the landmark deal revised to include provisions that weaken Iran militarily, wanting the country vulnerable to US/NATO/Israeli aggression.
What Biden regime hardliners want they won’t get.
Nor would any responsible leadership go along with their unacceptable demands.
For its part, the Times falsely accused Iran of “support(ing) terrorist groups” — a US/NATO/Israeli specialty the self-styled newspaper of record ignores.
It also ignores nearly a decade of US aggression on Syria, while criticizing Iran’s legitimate support for its ally.
The Times maintains the myth of an Iranian nuclear weapons threat.
On all things Iran and other nations free from US control, it wages an endless war of words that include a litany of bald-faced Big Lies — deep state supplied taking points.
All sovereign independent countries the US is hell bent to transform into pro-Western vassal states by brute force or other dirty tricks are nonbelligerent ones threatening no others.
In stark contrast, the Times supports US wars by hot and other means on invented enemies, including Iran.
It’s hostile toward peace, stability, equity, justice, the rule of law, and governance in Washington serving the rights and interests of all Americans, not just the privileged few.
It wages information war on truth and full disclosure, state-approved propaganda featured instead.
