Brazil Lauds US Iran Agreement and Deplores that it Was at Hand and Rejected by the US Three Years Ago1

On May 17, 2010 Turkey and Brazil brokered a deal with Iran for it to ship abroad uranium to be refined beyond the level needed for energy generation abroad. This breakthrough was as good, if not better than the one President Obama reached this week, but at the time, while the White House gave positive signals about the proposal, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton rejected it, revealing and projecting a mystifying mixed signal impression.
Speaking at the Brookings Institution think tank on that occasion , US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton then said that the United States had a “very serious” disagreement with Brazil over its approach to curbing Iran’s nuclear program, stating further that the Brazil-Turkish approach makes the world “more dangerous, not less,” and that the US had voiced its “serious disagreements” to Brazilian President Lula.
Today, in an interview to the Folha de São Paulo published on November 27, 2013, the Secretary of Defense of Brazil, Celso Amorim, stated that three years were lost as a result of the rejection by the US of the 2010 deal which had been agreed to by Iran, and in his analysis about the reason the plan had been rejected by the US he suggested that internal and external political factors were to be blamed.
President Obama should therefore further be lauded for displaying the strength of character and conviction by therefore dismissing the internal political factors and the external undue pressures brought to bear by the Israeli and Saudi Arabian leaders, as he not only embarks on a diplomatic conflict resolution on the specific issue of Iran’s right to refined uranium for the peaceful electrical power generation objectives, but as well he will most probably embark in experiencing and engaging with Iran on other issues as a result of this beginning of a thaw in the 30-year frozen relationship with Iran after its 1979 revolution which ended the tyranny of the Shah dynasty which came to power in 1953 after the UK and the US intervened to crush the democratically elected government of Mossadegh during which Moslems and seculars lived in harmony with each other.
It is noteworthy that on the same day, the same newspaper, reports that Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, also referred to as “Hillary Clinton’s nightmare”, has gained momentum in a probable quest for the White House in 2016.
It is finally further most noteworthy that there is no evidence that Iran has had any intention to weaponize nuclear energy, that it has signed onto the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and, that in contrast Israel has not only not signed on the the NPT Treaty, but has secretly developed an arsenal of nuclear weapons starting in 1969, as revealed to the London Financial Times in 1986 by nuclear worker Mordechai Vanunu who had left Israel to live with his brother in Australia.
After Vanunu’s interview in London he was violently abudcted in Italy by Mossad agents and whisked in a speedboat to a freighter which took him back to Israel where he has spent 11 years in solitary confinement for warning the world about this program.
It must finally furthermore be noted that Israel proliferated its nuclear energy weaponization technology to the racist South African Apartheid regime as reported documentably on by Sasha Polakow-Suranski in his book titled “The Unspoken Alliance”.
