Why Iran’s nuclear drama took center stage

Uncategorized Comments (7)

Sharmine Narwani at the Huffington Post lays down a fact that is absent from almost every MSM news about the latest iteration of the Iranian nuclear program. Excerpt:

Fact: The current rate of inspection of Iran’s nuclear
facilities is an inspector’s visit every other week. It is by far the
most heavily enforced inspections regime in IAEA history. Approximately
half of these visits are unannounced.

Per the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), member states have the right
to enrich uranium. Iran signed onto the treaty the year it became open
for signature, in 1968, a year after the United States provided Iran
with its first nuclear plant, and two years before the NPT came into
force. In 2002, it became known that Iran was pursuing a nuclear
enrichment program, which it acknowledged in 2003, and subsequently
opened its doors to the IAEA to place these facilities under the
required safeguards.

But, after enduring years of scrutiny, Iran started complaining that
the cycle of questions never ends. In a letter to the Agency’s board of
governors on June 17, 2009, the Permanent Representative of the Islamic
Republic of Iran to the IAEA argued:

“After six years of the most robust and intrusive
inspection in the history of the Agency, and in spite of the continuous
declaration of the Director General (of the IAEA, Mohammad El Baradei)
in over 20 reports to the Board of Governors, that there is no evidence
of diversion of nuclear materials and activities to prohibited purposes
(i.e., weaponization), the issue is still on the agenda. The simple
question is: why?”

 She continues:

So what’s with the relentless scrutiny of Iran’s nuclear intentions?
Let me go out on a limb here: Iran, which is a major oil producing
state in a strategically important region, has a very independent
foreign policy stance on issues that are of concern to the United
States and many of its allies. They don’t like that. Israel, the US’s
main regional ally, needs to keep itself relevant to Western powers now
that the Cold War is well and truly over, divert attention from it’s
own covert nuclear weapons stash, and avoid accountability for its
failure to address the Palestinian issue. It needs a big old bogeyman.
Enter Iran, the convenient scary kid on the block. Iran isn’t exactly
an angel — it has powered up its anti-Israel rhetoric to stay relevant
on the Arab and Muslim Street. These two blocs clash, and they seek
continuously to curb the other’s influence.
