Americans Should Pause Before They Fall For Leftist Hopes Of Utopia Dreamery Via The John Kerry Led Nuclear Non-Proliferation Negotiations With Iran

There has been talk that the goal of the current John Kerry led Department of State is to get Iran to sign the 1968 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and then the whole issue of Iran building nuclear weapons will be resolved upon their promise by signature to that document, or words to this effect.  Really?  


The Financial Times of London recently interviewed iranian President Hassan Rouhani concerning its nuclear program and its intents there, as well as bringing up the Syrian War Crisis.  

http://video.ft.com/v/2878742620001

While talking "Peace", it is sufficient to say that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's facial language betrays his internal intent all too clearly.  Psychological Operations (Psy - Ops) Warfare predates the Cold War between the United States and the Communists of the Soviet Union and China.  And many of its applications and techniques are readily available and made known to the general public at large.  Those who wish and want to know, in the Western World, from a public library or through retail purchases or via the internet, can know to even an excellent proficiency (depending on source material, dedication, base subject intelligence and ability to thought rationalization and problem solving processing capability).  

The Washington Free Beacon  reports 
that the immediate windfall of Obama's recent release of sanctions against Iran begins with an extra 500,000 barrels of oil sales per day for at least the next 6 months.  

Even prior to negotiations, as a condition just for talking with them, the Iranians insisted on and got the release of an Iranian nuclear scientist  Mojtaba Atarodi.  http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2013/11/29/U-S-Released-IranianScientist-As-Part-Of-Nuke-Talks-Before-Geneva-Agreement

This action of "appease first, the negotiate" appears to follow the illegally appointed Secretary of State John Kerry's lead.  In the first Presidential debate between Senator John Kerry, and President George W. Bush, Senator Kerry laid out what is now the Obama 100% assured for failure policy. 

http://www.foxnews.com/story/2004/10/01/transcript-video-debate-1/



LEHRER: Senator Kerry, 90 seconds.

KERRY: With respect to Iran, the British, French, and Germans were the ones who initiated an effort without the United States, regrettably, to begin to try to move to curb the nuclear possibilities in Iran. I believe we could have done better.
I think the United States should have offered the opportunity to provide the nuclear fuel, test them, see whether or not they were actually looking for it for peaceful purposes. If they weren't willing to work a deal, then we could have put sanctions together. The president did nothing.


 The current apparent  "Kerry Policy on Iran"  as instituted, 



appears to begin first with a full compromise to allow Iran to NOT have economic sanctions, and later to even provide them with even MORE nuclear material under a “trust” that it will be for peaceful purposes, when they are on record demanding the nuclear destruction of both Israel and the United States of America in the name of the coming final and Great Anti-Christ or Mahdi of Islam, and of their ideas of what is moral to them to do. 

 The deception is evident in the Financial Times interview Psy-Ops Facial language of Iranian President Rouhani at the first link given above
(and available there only for as long as the FT retains it there).

 There is a clear and genuine concern, frankness, truthfulness, when Iranian President Hassan Rouhani  first discusses the invasion of foreign terrorists into Syria.  This is the honesty marker and baseline by which Psy-Ops then measures the rest of the interview.  When Rouhani says he will use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes only, he is almost off the scales with deception.  When Iranian President Rouhani says he will talk to the United States and Syria, he says so in a disgusted way that is in excess of 60% that makes his comments highly probable that he would, even though he clearly detests both nations.  That detesting of both Saudi Arabia and the United States running off the Psy-Ops baseline for the interview in the context of what was being discussed, tells those in the Community and then others they inform if they will bother to relay the information, that no deal with Rouhani can be trusted to be honored by the Iranians...not even one that in anyway in regard to themselves or in regard to their (for once) "good guy rescue" role to a wronged by the U.S. and Saudi Arabia regional ally of theirs.   


Have The Pacifists So Soon Forgotten The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Violations By The United States, U.S.S.R., United Kingdom, and China?  

There has been the erroneous claim that if Iran sets their diplomatic pen to the 1968 NuclearNon-Proliferation Treaty,   http://www.fas.org/nuke/control/npt/text/index.html
 and that this somehow means that the Iranians are now "suddenly"  honest in their intent to develop their nuclear material only for peaceful purposes.  Anyone intelligent and informed individual or group of individuals (such as a think tank) of people over the age of  45  in this nation has no excuse to believe this nonsense.  None.  

    Even at the lowest of the selected age spectrum, of those as young as 45 and upwards from there, we have all seen and been cognizant of the SALT II Treaty.  Most of us have been cognizant of the SALT I Treaty whether we wanted to be or not.   The issue freaked most of the nation out at the time, and the 3 major networks that WAS television at the time (CBS, NBC, ABC) made it a very big deal and impression in the midst of a protracted U.S.- Vietnam War.   Anyone who lived the 1970s and paid any attention to the newspapers, the television and news radio, or had a subscription to TIME Magazine or what have you, could not escape being aware of SALT I and SALT II 


Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT I & II)


and what they were all about.  In spite of signing a nuclear non-proliferation Treaty by the two principal powers, the United States and the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republic, treated that same Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty as if it were toilet paper: even more worthless than Prime Minister Chamberlain’s 1938 Peace Accord with Adolf Hitler, because in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty of 1968, both parties had no intention of honoring what they agreed to.  That Treaty was for others to sign and follow.

The Strategic Arms Limitation Talks II (which was never finalized under the excuse that it was because the U.S.S.R. invaded Afghanistan) had to remind the U.S. and U.S.S.R. to be    
“Mindful of their obligations under Article VI of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons…”
because they we technically in chronic violation of the same Treaty, even though they would not directly say it that bluntly.

Article IV
1. Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with articles I and II of this Treaty.
2. All the Parties to the Treaty undertake to facilitate, and have the right to participate in, the fullest possible exchange of equipment, materials and scientific and technological information for the peaceful uses of nuclear energy.
Article VI
Each of the Parties to the Treaty undertakes to pursue negotiations in good faith on effective measures relating to cessation of the nuclear arms race at an early date and to nuclear disarmament, and on a Treaty on general and complete disarmament under strict and effective international control.

By an emphasis of Article 4.1,.2; it is clear that the presumption was a curbing and then a stopping of new weapons of war at an “early date” as stated in Article 6 of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.  Also, in SALT II we are told that in 1979, the intent of SALT II  was about  


"Reaffirming their desire to take measures for the further limitation and for the further reduction of strategic arms, having in mind the goal of achieving general and complete disarmament,
Declaring their intention to undertake in the near future negotiations further to limit and further to reduce strategic offensive arms,"


limitations that never took place until the Arms Race created a bankruptcy condition upon the U.S.S.R. that de facto ended the Nuclear Arms race between the two powers.


In December of 2010, the U.S. Department of Defense, released this short video:

But 1550 Nukes aren't really 1550 Nukes under the Obama 

Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty upon the United States.  

No.

         When I stated that the START Treaty pushed by Obama counted as one nuke,  http://brianroysinput.blogspot.com/2010/12/obama-on-behalf-of-russia-suckers.html  

http://brianroysinput.blogspot.com/2012/02/see-i-told-you-soobama-unilaterally-is.html 

 http://brianroysinput.blogspot.com/2012/12/obama-20-world-where-united-states-has.html 

  I was NOT kidding nor exaggerating.  NOT even slightly.

         A May 2012 Classified Report to Congress, redacted and de-classified and released on September 20, 2012, under the Freedom of Information Act http://www.fas.org/programs/ssp/nukes/nuclearweapons/DOD2012_RussianNukes.pdf  states twice on page 2 that conventional heavy  bombers are THEMSELVES counted as if a nuclear weapon:

Note that under New START Treaty counting rules... "each deployed nuclear capable  heavy bomber counts as one nuclear warhead·…

 3 (U) Under New START Treaty counting rules, each deployed heavy bomber counts as one deployed nuclear warhead."  


Then on November 27, 2012, we have the Internal Security Advisory Board (ISAB) report being asked to assess a strategic reduction of all United States Nuclear Weapons to very low numbers or to even zero (pp. 17-18 of the pdf)
   http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/201403.pdf   


While Obama disarms the U.S. Military, he gives every advantage to its enemies to go ahead and do a first strike or develop nukes so it CAN do a first strike on the U.S., with an eventual "no retaliation" capability on our part.  And the leaders in the Federal Government behave as if they have been dopified on prescription drugs, or utterly corrupted, or brainwashed or perhaps even scared into just pretending it all isn't happening.

      Some Pacifists today, like those over at Ron Paul's Institute, 

are upset that current Republican Party's House of Representatives Majority Leader   Eric Cantor mistrusts the Iranians, and they cite that words, mere words in the 1968 Non-Proliferation Treaty in Article 4

Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with articles I and II of this Treaty.


is sufficient to stop the Iranians from breaking that promise.  Talk about naive.  This is precisely just one example among many as to why Ron Paul never got more national backing.  Here is the 1968 Non-Proliferation Treaty and what countries signed it, ratified it,  and when.   More comments will follow below this insert.

__________________________

TOTAL: 185 (Total does not include Taiwan or SFR Yugoslavia, which has dissolved.)

NOTES:

a - Dates given are the earliest dates on which a country signed the Treaty or deposited its instrument of ratification or accession.

-- whether in Washington, London, or Moscow. In the case of a country that was a dependent territory which became a party through succession, the date given is the date on which the country gave notice that it would continue to be bound by the terms of the Treaty.

b - Effective 11/25/75.

1 With Statement.

2 The former German Democratic Republic, which united with the Federal Republic of Germany on 10/3/90, had signed the NPT on 7/1/68 and deposited its instrument of ratification on 10/31/69.

3 Extended to Netherlands Antilles and Aruba.

4 Extended to Aguilla and territories under the territorial sovereignty of the United Kingdom.

5 Russia has given notice that it would continue to exercise the rights and fulfill the obligations of the former Soviet Union arising from the NPT.

6 The Republic of Yemen resulted from the union of the Yemen Arab Republic and the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen. The table indicates the date of signature and ratification by the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen; the first of these two states to become a party to the NPT. The Yemen Arab Republic signed the NPT on 9/23/68 and deposited its instrument of ratification on 5/14/86.

7 On 1/27/70, an instrument of ratification was deposited in the name of the Republic of China. Effective 1/1/79, the United States recognized the People's Republic of China as the sole legal government of China. The authorities on Taiwan state that they will continue to abide by the provisions of the Treaty and the United States regards them as bound by the obligations imposed by the Treaty.

* Entries with asterisk have NPT safeguards agreements that have entered into force as of 10/31/92.

** Non-NPT, full-scope safeguards agreement in force.




So, whatever happened to The United States and the Soviet Union as 1968 original member signatories?  Did they stop proliferating  or producing Nuclear Weapons?  What the hell were the Nixon SALT I and the Carter SALT II treaties all about if we weren’t still creating and developing these arsenals because the two nations diplomatically signed a Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty that was adhered to?   Yeah, only it wasn't adhered to, not even for a few years.  
 




“Overall, today’s warhead inventories are considerably

lower than the Cold War peak of more than 70,000

 warheads in the mid-1980s….”

Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists 2013 69: 75 (@ page 76, paragraph 2)

Hans M. Kristensen and Robert S. Norris

Global nuclear weapons inventories, 1945-2013



   And NOW, in 2013 ff., we are just supposed to stupidly and unthinkingly accept that Iran  is just going to keep to a non-proliferation treaty that even the 2 principle signers of the pact could NOT keep to for just 3 years before having to sign a reduction in nuclear warhead rate of speed proliferation treaty?    Yeah, right.  Give me a break. 

Despite also signing in 1968, 

the British Government also ignored the self-same Treaty: 
  
(See the opening sentence in the ff. pdf on page 69 @ 


the Chinese signed in 1995, and in the very opening sentence regarding China in 2013, we read:

Abstract
The number of weapons in China’s nuclear arsenal is slowly growing, and the capability of those weapons is also increasing.”

Hans M. Kristensen,   and Robert S. Norris
 Chinese nuclear forces, 2013
Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists 2013 69:79-85 (at page 79).


 Signing the 1968 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, or any 

other Treaty by Iran or the United States or any other

 country without a determined measure of retaliation and

 punishment for violating it, therefore means nothing,

 except as a Public Relations means of 

"excuse convenience" for those who wish to foster or 

further lying to the public.   


That's my input.
