Iran is in good need of a political scrubbing.

There are plenty of people in Iran just praying that their nation is next on the hit parade.

"The resolution adopted by the board of governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) says Iran must resume full suspension of all nuclear-fuel-related activities and asks the agency to verify Tehran's compliance."

Or what? The IAEA will sulk?

Iran Threatens to Stop Oil Exports

(The article is in Dutch, but has been translated to English)

TEHERAN - the Iranian parliamentary energy commission has warned that oil can use as a political weapon against possible sanctions. The country react with that is able to international strafmaatregelen because of the core programme of the country, will communicate to the Iranian press office Mehr Saturday. According to the commission member Shokrollah Attarzadeh against olie-exporten of the country can answer sanctions to iran with a complete stopzetting of the oil export from the Persian golf. He did not say thereby if such a blockade would find also the export from the Arab emirates. The international nuclear energy agency (IAEA) iran Thursday all nuclear activities has called to stop. The UN organisation has not yet referred the question to the Security Council, which sanctions could impose.


Iranian media calls for oil embargo!

The Tehran Times runs a column in Sunday's edition calling for an oil embargo as response to the US/European pressure and possible sanctions.

Here, the column is run by the Mehr News Agency:


Oil embargo best response to nuclear boycott

By Hassan Hanizadeh

Thursday’s resolution of the International Atomic Energy Agency Board of Governors, issued under pressure from the United States and the European Union big three, actually indicated that the status of international organizations, including the IAEA, has declined seriously in the face of the blackmail of the neocolonialist powers.

The resolution was ratified despite the fact that the Islamic Republic had proven its good faith and observed all IAEA regulations.

Unfortunately, under the tutelage of the U.S., the EU trio of Britain, France, and Germany drafted an unfair resolution against Iran by fostering disunity among the member states of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM).

The resolution, which violates the terms of the Tehran and Paris accords, was ratified to meet the objectives of the Zionist regime and the United States.

Many political analysts say the IAEA resolution also violates the terms of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty because the NPT states that signatories have the right to access nuclear technology meant for peaceful purposes.

The double-standard policy applied by the U.S. and other Western countries to the nuclear issue and other global issues is one of the most significant challenges facing the modern world.

Although several countries, including the Zionist regime, Pakistan, and India, are producing nuclear weapons, and most of them have conducted nuclear tests, the United States and its Western allies are trying to deprive Iran of its right to gain access to civilian nuclear expertise.

This double standard on international issues obliges NAM members, including the Islamic Republic of Iran, to review their relations with the West.

The U.S. and other Western countries are making use of the natural resources of various countries, including the fossil fuel resources of the Middle East, to power their military and civilian industries.

The continuation of the unequal relationship between Third World countries, particularly Muslim countries, and the U.S. and other Western countries, which have adopted an unfair attitude, will never benefit the countries of the global South.

Therefore, the oil-rich countries, including Iran, which possess the most significant pressure lever, should wisely use this tool to punish the Western neocolonialist countries.

Oil is the lifeline of the West, and most of the West’s military industries are dependent on it. Therefore, it is the most potent economic weapon for settling scores with neocolonialist countries.

The Iranian nation clearly has the right to stand up to the dictatorship of the EU3 and the U.S., and the best act of resistance would be to impose an embargo on oil sales to those countries.

Iran is a country with great potential to respond to Western meddling.

Therefore, after consulting with some OPEC countries, Iran should propose plans to confront the hegemonistic actions of the West.

Islamic countries must unite and formulate a political strategy to respond to Western neocolonialist countries, since the efforts to prevent Iran from accessing nuclear technology are the first step in the plan to prevent other Islamic and Third World countries from developing this vital technology.
