US, IAEA, and Regime Change Aspirations

Yukiya-Amano-says-Iran-co-001.jpg

As Israel prepares to launch a military attack on Iran, UN's IAEA conveniently releases a report on the Iranian nuclear program. The report comes out just days ahead of the seasonal meeting of the board of Governors, which is scheduled to be held in Vienna from November 17 to 18.

Iran's envoy to the IAEA, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, cited the following problems:

The Iranian envoy to the IAEA further said that Amano's latest report was prepared under pressure by the United States, adding that the IAEA chief has violated the Agency's Statute as a result of submission to the US demands.
Soltanieh noted that Amano has made several mistakes in his new report, the first of which is violating the agency's principle of confidentiality by publicly distributing unproven documents related to a member state.
Amano's second mistake was submitting the documents to five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council one week before they were distributed to IAEA member states, the Iranian envoy added.
“This is in contradiction with [iAEA] Statute because all members…have equal weight and a vote,” Soltanieh pointed out.

Earlier IAEA reports finds no evidence of Iran producing nuclear weapons

Last year, Jason Ditz, reported in
:
Though US officials have repeatedly accused Iran of making nuclear weapons they have never provided evidence of this assertion, and the IAEA has continually verified the non-diversion of Iran’s nuclear material.

So a year later, IAEA is now all of sudden claiming that Iran may have dual-use capabilities? What changed in a year?

IAEA chief sacked
and replaced
by a loyalist

In 2009, IAEA's chief and lead negotiator Mohammad ElBaradei was sacked. His crime, he wasn't partial enough something the US and Israel did not appreciate.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has indirectly criticized ElBaradei for "muddying the message" to Iran and has also said that "the IAEA is not in the business of diplomacy. The IAEA is a technical agency that has a board of governors of which the United States is a member."
Former prime minister and current president of Israel, Shimon Peres, has said that "there are holes in the (IAEA) apparatus for deterring a culture of nuclear weapons, as in the case with Iran, but the agency certainly has done much in the prevention of nuclear weapons from reaching dangerous hands." In a different reaction, former Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Shaul Mofaz has called for ElBaradei to be impeached.
In September 2007, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, warned about the potential dangers of a nuclear Iran. He stated that "we have to prepare for the worst, and the worst is war." In response to Kouchner, ElBaredei characterized talk of attacking Iran as "hype", and dismissed the notion of a possible attack on Iran. He referred to the war in Iraq, where "70,000 innocent civilians have lost their lives on the suspicion that a country has nuclear weapons." He further added "I do not believe at this stage that we are facing a clear and present danger that requires [that] we go beyond diplomacy."

In 2009, then Japanese Ambassador, Yukiya Amano, took the reigns of the "wild and dissenting" IAEA. In November 2010, British newspaper The
reported on a U.S. diplomatic cable originating a year earlier in Vienna and supplied to the newspaper by
WikiLeaks
, detailing a meeting between Amano and an American ambassador. The author of the cable summarized a statement by Amano in which the latter offered that he
"was solidly in the U.S. court on every key strategic decision, from high-level personnel appointments to the handling of Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program."
(Wikipedia).

We don't want a solution, we want regime change

Last May,
hinted towards the true nature and objectives of the IAEA:
According to the former IAEA president and lead negotiator, Mohamed Mustafa ElBaradei, he was “on the verge of a solution on several occasions” and politics always foiled the efforts. In particular, ElBaradei accused U.S. and European officials of withholding important documents. “They weren’t interested in a compromise with the government in Tehran, but regime change - by any means necessary,” reported ElBaradei. He also noted the difficulty of trying to broker talks under these circumstances.

It was never about finding the truth, the imperialists want
regime change
.
