US hostile threats against Iran escalate, By Andrew Taylor, Fri. Sept. 18, 2009




Hillary Clinton threatens Iran over an alleged nuclear program
Clinton said: "Our message will be clear: we are serious and we will soon see if the Iranians are serious"

The US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today escalated the American war campaign against Iran. The Secretary stated that Iran has refused to prove that its nuclear aspirations are peaceful and that this has "profound consequences" for world security. In other words, The US and its colonial-fascist powder-monkey Israel plan to disturb world peace unless Iran becomes fully compliant with Western reasons of state.

In sum, Mrs Clinton said the Obama administration's offer to negotiate with Iran remains, but the US possesses the power to impose yet more penalties and a tighter isolation unless Iran comes clean and confesses to nefarious military nuclear ambitions.

She also said that time is running out for Tehran to show it is serious about addressing US concerns about its nuclear program and that the question would be at the top of the US agenda at next week's UN General Assembly session.

In a speech at the Brookings Institution that served as a preview of the American agenda for the U.N. meeting, Hillary Clinton stated that: "Iran's continued failure to live up to its obligations carries profound consequences for the security of the United States and our allies...Our concern is not Iran's right to develop peaceful nuclear energy, but its responsibility to demonstrate that its program is intended exclusively for peaceful purposes."

The US will attempt to ramp up its demagogic campaign against Iran in league with the UK, France, China, Germany and Russia in the UN Security Council. The six nations claim to have offered a package of "incentives" to Iran in order to induce the Islamic Republic to halt activities that could at some point lead to technological access to atomic weapon production.

Iran, which has always insisted its nuclear program is peaceful, has not as yet accepted the American package of incentives despite ominous threats from Imperialism that its refusal to do so will bring upon it fresh US sponsored U.N. sanctions. Iran is currently suffering under 3 layers of US provoked Security Council sanctions.

The meeting at the U.N. is set for Sept 23rd. One week after the Meeting on Oct. 1, top diplomats from the six countries will meet Iran's chief nuclear negotiator to gauge whether Iranian capitulation is forthcoming.

U.S. officials have long made the claim that Iran is trying to create an atomic weapon, but it has not usually been a claim shared by others, particularly China and Russia, which have refused to impose new sanctions on Iran. Now however, since the US has offered Russia a carrot by withdrawing the threat of an eastern European anti-missile system, hopes are high in Washington that a Moscow quid pro quo gesture may be in the works.

Of course no mention was made by Mrs Clinton about aggressive Israel's stockpile of 200 plus nuclear Missiles.

An overview of the 1934 Toledo Auto-Lite strike - Philip A. Korth & Margaret R. Beegle

LIBCOM.ORG A summary by Philip A. Korth and Margaret R. Beegle of the 1934 Toledo Auto-Lite strike. Originally appeared as the second chapter of I remember like today: the Auto-Lite strike of 1934, an oral history. The strikes at Auto-Lite in Toledo in the spring of 1934 secured a victory for the fledgling Automobile Workers Federal Union Local 18384 of the AFL and permanently altered the nature of worker-employer relationships in Toledo. This victory assured that working men and women in Toledo would have some power over their working lives and a voice in their community. Workers in Toledo today owe a debt of gratitude to the "unholy thirteen" who huddled over the fires burning in drums in front of Auto-Lite and who dreamed of freedom and dignity. And as today grows out of yesterday, so the workers in 1934 faced a set of conditions and attitudes shaped decades before by the industrial evolution of Toledo, the development of the automobile industry, and the historical strugg…

A US-Supported Coup in the Making in Nicaragua by Carlos Dada, 10 July, 2018

Jacinto Suarez, a legislator and the International Secretary of the Daniel Ortega’s FSLN, tells El Faro it’s all a conspiracy “to overturn the government”. Likewise, he justifies the use of paramilitary forces to aid the Police. Photo: Fred Ramos
By “the oligarchy, the drug dealers and the poor people on the right”
By Carlos Dada(El Faro / Confidencial) HAVANA TIMES – In Nicaragua the media that don’t belong to the government or the presidential family are overflowing with voices demanding the exit of President Daniel Ortega, but there are very few individual Sandinista voices there. The responsibility for such views falls mainly on the Sandinista Front Party and the public officials.  They won’t talk to reporters. There’s generally only an official version, delivered directly by the Vice President Rosario Murillo, using the government’s own communications media. That’s why an interview with Jacinto Suarez merits a higher profile.  Suarez is one of the most influential men in the FSLN. …
