CASMII's Statement and Demands on the US-Iran Standoff

We believe the Western alliance is unfairly singling out Iran with a propaganda campaign that is paving the way for war. The United States and Great Britain label Iran as a threat to peace, even though it is they who have illegally invaded Iraq and destabilized the region. Similarly, the U.S. and its allies play politics with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty by reneging on their own pledge to disarm, by refusing peaceful nuclear co-operation with Iran, by sharing American nuclear know-how with India, a country that Washington earlier branded a nuclear outlaw, and by failing to sanction Pakistan, another nuclear nation with a shaky, undemocratic government. In committing these breaches, the Western bloc is not supported by the majority of the world's public opinion, which believes relations among sovereign states should be governed by international law and treaties. The US through its covert operations and support for the MEK, actually listed as a terrorist organization by the US and EU governments, has been fomenting ethnic conflict in Iran and under the cover of its "democratization program" carries out a destabilization program in Iran, clearly illegal in international law and under the UN Charter. In support of the rule of law in international relations, we issue the following list as our minimum demands for change in the foreign policies of the U.S., its allies and international agencies toward Iran.
Complete Coverage
If the US isn't planning an attack on Iran then why the sanctions? Why are we provking them? In My View of It, we will be at war with Iran before Bush leaves office in '08 despite the fact that he and his administration deny all suggestions to the contrary. Basically, what Iran is telling us is that any form of sanctions on Iran will hurt the Iranian people and serve as a prelude to war, as happened in the case of Iraq. We call on the UN Security Council to lift all sanctions and we call on the U.S. and its allies to accept Iran's offer to negotiate without preconditions. We call on the United States to end existing trade sanctions against Iran and free Iran's frozen assets, in accordance with earlier agreements.

In my view...we'll be at war with every country, civilized or not, before W leaves office. Seriously.
