USA slipper bikkjene løs!
Posted by Fredsvenn den oktober 1, 2012
MEK, det iranske mujahedin, er bråkmakere og fiender av det iranske og det irakiske folk. Eneste som vil ha dem er CIA, USA, ettersom de lar seg bruke i deres destabiliseringspolitikk. Jeg har kranglet med disse folka før og bl.a skrevet titalls av sider om dem. MEK har ingenting å gjøre med den iranske opposisjonen. Ifølge dem skulle Iran ha hatt utviklet atomvåpen for allerede flere år siden, men de kommer med så mange løgner at man ikke kan ta det de sier for seriøst.
«Obama serves as the smiley-face mask for the same militaristic policies left behind by George W. Bush and his Neoconservative handlers.»
The move by Washington last week is, in effect, giving full approval to the MEK’s terror and assassination campaign in Iran. It is a stark reminder of Washington’s unwavering warpath towards Iran.

Here’s a thought experiment: imagine that there is a terrorist network in the USA that has been responsible for hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths over several decades.
The group declares itself dedicated to destroying the US government and has been involved in car bombing urban centres, kidnapping and murdering members of the country’s security forces, and assassinating government scientists, as well as perpetrating countless random murders on businessmen and ordinary families.
Now imagine that the Iranian government announces a new policy in which it does not consider the above clandestine group a terrorist entity. That policy means that the network is free to raise money in Iran to fund its terror campaign against US citizens and to lobby for political support among Iranian lawmakers and ambassadors.
The US has removed the dissident Iranian group Mujahideen-e Khalq (MEK) from its terror blacklist, CNN reported on Saturday.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton formally removed the group after sending a classified opinion to Congress earlier in September. The organisation had been designated a terror group by the US since 1997.
The decision made by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton enabled the group, also known as the People»s Mujahedeen of Iran, to have its assets under U. S. jurisdiction unfrozen and do business with American entities, the State Department said.
Worthy to mention that when the Bush administration sought to justify its attack on Iraq in 2003 by accusing Saddam Hussein of being a sponsor of “international terrorism”, one of its prime examples was Iraq’s “sheltering” of the MEK. Its inclusion on the terrorist list has meant that it is forbidden to provide any “material support” to that group.
However, removing MEK from US black list assures that violence used by the US and its allies (including stateless groups) can never be terrorism, no matter how heinous and criminal!
The PBS documentary series «Frontline», reported, in October 2007, CIA supports Anti-Iranian organizations such as the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (also known as the MEK or MKO) which has been involved in terrorist activities within Iran. Iran has demanded that the US stop supporting the MEK in exchange for stopping its support of Shiite’s in Iraq. The show quoted Vali Nasr, author of The Shia Revival as saying the Iranians had hoped that the fall of Saddam would destroy the MEK, which is generally unpopular in Iraq…the MEK operated in Iraq as an arm of Iraqi intelligence against Iranian operatives in Iraq, against Shi’ites and against the Kurds. And, in fact, one of the major pressures on the United States to round up the MEK and put them in a camp did not come from Iran; it came from [Iraqi President] Jalal Talabani…. And I think at a third level the Iranians look at the MEK issue as a test of U.S. goodwill….»
Richard Armitage disagreed that MEK was being supported. «Richard Armitage, U.S. deputy secretary of state, 2001-05, said… «I’ve heard through some interviews that in some of the discussions leading up to the invasion that Ryan Crocker had said to the Iranians that the MEK would be treated as part of Saddam’s army, the implication being [it would be] on a target list, which wasn’t exactly what happened after the war.
«I don’t know about that specifically, but we had discussed the MEK more pointedly after the invasion. And there were some in the administration who wanted to use the Mujahideen-e Khalq as a pressure point against Iran, and I can remember the national security adviser, Dr. [Condoleezza] Rice, being very specific about it, saying no, a terrorist group is a terrorist group.
«That was exactly the point of view of the State Department as well. We wanted the U.S. military to disarm the MEK and contain them. … And eventually we did disarm the major weapons [from] the MEK. Then we … engaged in a broad effort to try to resettle these people, but we were very unsuccessful in getting them settled in foreign lands….»
New evidence was cited in a 2012 New Yorker article by Seymour Hersh regarding U.S. government assistance to MEK: “It was here [the Department of Energy’s Nevada National Security Site] the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) conducted training, beginning in 2005, for members of the Mujahideen-e-Khalq…. Funds were covertly passed to a number of dissident organizations, for intelligence collection and, ultimately, for anti-regime terrorist activities. Directly, or indirectly, the M.E.K. ended up with resources like arms and intelligence. Some American-supported covert operations continue in Iran today, according to past and present intelligence officials and military consultants.”In the same article, Robert Baer, a retired C.I.A. agent, is also on record as stating: “They [the U.S. government] wanted me to help the M.E.K. collect intelligence on Iran’s nuclear program[.]”
Støtte til Jundallah:
Jundallah, or Jondollah (جندالله, lit. «Soldiers of God»), also known as People’s Resistance Movement of Iran (PRMI), is a militant organization based in Pakistan that claimed to be fighting for the rights of Sunni Muslims in Iran. It was allegedly founded by Abdolmalek Rigi who was captured and executed in Iran in 2010. It is believed to have between 700 to 2,000 fighters and is said to be responsible for killing 154 and injuring 320 Iranian citizens since 2003, while Jundullah commanders claim the group has killed up to 400 Iranian soldiers. The group has been designated a terrorist organization by Iran, and the United States and it has been linked to, and taken credit for, numerous acts of terror, kidnapping and the smuggling of narcotics. According to many sources, the group is linked to al-Qaeda. Iran has been critical of the U.S. and U.K. governments for allegedly supporting Jundallah. Several other sources such as the ABC News, Daily Telegraph, and journalist Seymour Hersh have also reported that Jundullah has received support from the United States against Iran.
Reports confirm, in this regard, that military exercises are currently (September 2012) being conducted near Iran’s territorial waters, and are “intended to simulate Iran’s response to a US-Israeli attack, namely what actions will be taken by allied forces in response to military retaliation by Iran”. (Michel Chossudovsky, ““Warship Diplomacy”: A Prelude to All Out War against Iran?», Global Research, September 26, 2012.) Underwater drones are part of the war games. Will unmanned armed submarines be used for “clandestine mining” against Iran in the Persian Gulf?
Zionismens største forbrytelse:
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad condemned the crimes committed by Israel against the Palestinians and other world nations, and said the Zionists’ biggest crime is that they attribute themselves to the Jewish community who are peace-seeking people. The occupation of Palestine is only the small portion of the crimes committed by the Zionist regime […]
