Don’t believe all the US lies on Iran. America’s sole aim is to get the country it ‘lost’ in 1979 back in its grip

Let’s not pretend US actions or words on Iran have any legitimacy. The real ‘threat to the world’ comes from self-righteous warmongers in Washington, not from Tehran.

We’ve heard it all over the past week. Iran is a “threat to the world”, a “sponsor of terrorism”, is “destabilizing the Middle East”, and the international community must “cooperate” over this grave threat by implementing crushing United Nations sanctions on the country, including an arms embargo, as part of a “snapback” option against it. Shamelessly, Mike Pompeo positions himself once again as a champion of freedom, claiming he is on a self-righteous mission to stop the tyranny of Iran from “obtaining a nuclear weapon”.

Except it’s as unconvincing as it is tedious and dishonest: The world yawns, but also itches in frustration as it is lectured to by a Washington which demands they fall in line with measures, which have no legitimacy or standing under international law whatsoever. The US wants to have its cake and eat it with Tehran. It has withdrawn from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and ceases to be a party to it, yet behaves as if it is still a party and that Iran are the ones in violation of it. One rule for thee but not for me.
