Japan Times: People “fed up with the shroud of secrecy” in EDITORIAL: Fukushima — Starting to smuggle in journalists — Must rely on media for help


When real data finally released prosecutions of liars needs to begin; Chief liar Yukio Edano, Japanese and U.S.  "mainstream media" corporations and individual "journalist" liars; is impeachable offense for Obama; Japan Times starts to cover it's ass

Fukushima health concerns, Japan Times Editorial, Nov. 8, 2011:

“Increasingly [those forced from their homes as a result of the disaster] are fed up with the shroud of secrecy thrown over the Fukushima plant and the abandoned towns and villages where families had lived for centuries.”

Yukio Edano
“The less media coverage there is, the more they worry that their plight will be forgotten—and the less pressure there will be on Tepco to cough up proper compensation. That appears to be one reason some are starting to take the law into their own hands and smuggling journalists into the forbidden zone.”



  

Iran, U.S. and Ethical-Religious Reasoning


America would not have half the problems it does if it would just stay the hell out of other countries and their business; Obama and Netanyahu talk as if Iran bombing done deal; International public, Americans have only themselves to blame for not stopping it

In his classic study "Suicide" (1897), French Sociologist Emile Durkheim coined the term anomie. Anomie derived from the Greek word "lawlessness" and according to Durkheim, it was "the lack of moral consensus and normative control in society, resulting from a breakdown of traditional authority." Since then, anomie has been used by Sociologists to describe the disintegration of social controls and ethics, specifically in modern industrialized societies undergoing major transitions. Sociologists observed individuals, including political leaders, who no longer felt accountable to each other nor constrained by traditional and moral constraints. They believed this kind of extreme narcissistic behavior and egotistical elitism led to the breakdown of social contracts and interpersonal relationships and bonds. Anomie also caused insecurity and alienation, even suicide.

This is it:  If not stopped, madmen will start WWIII
It is little wonder, then, that Iran believes the United States is not following a "rational" approach regarding its foreign policy. While proclaiming an end to the U.S.-Iraqi War and a complete troop withdraw, the U.S. is significantly increasing its military presence in the region. Even though the U.S. claims it wants to improve relations with Iran, it constantly threatens Iran with more punitive sanctions and believes Iran is the "biggest threat."

    And while the U.S. is "prepared to militarily engage Iran," a leaked report just revealed Israeli leaders are trying to secure Cabinet consensus for an attack on Iran's civilian nuclear installations. President Barack Obama's warning to keep "unprecedented pressure" on Iran makes the U.S. appear it does not really want to establish a meaningful dialogue with Iran. It also makes U.S. leaders seem immorally arrogant and deprived of understanding.

Those that think Amhadinejad won't bomb Israel are insane
The Persian Gulf and its strategic importance and valuable resources is not the only gulf separating Iran and the U.S. In the words of Iran's Foreign Minister, the U.S. is "not following a rational and prudent approach. The Americans always have a deficit, unfortunately in rationality and prudence.." This gulf, this deficit in foresight, is the inability of the U.S. to utilize and pursue ethical and moral reasoning. Unlike Iran's foreign policy, which is based on a more traditional and moral approach to analysis and decision making, the U.S. is incapable of mustering the intellectual skills necessary to apply ethical principles fairly to Iran and Persian Gulf region. With its egocentrism and technologically superior attitude, not to mention a militant-like criminality in foreign affairs, or anomie policy, the U.S. has imposed irrational judgments while undermining its own principles.

Bombing of Iran's refineries will drive oil up to $500.00 U.S. a barrel
Since Iran's Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran is still trying to reverse decades of U.S.-imposed anomie behavior and unethical reasoning. The amalgamation of a theo-democracy is somewhat unique in modern times. Although the U.S. feels threatened by such a government, specifically due to its own secular and materialistic society, Iran has tried to forge a representative system based on Islamic laws. From an ethical and reasonable viewpoint, Iran protects the rights of its ethnic and religious minorities. With regards to its religious precepts, Iran and its Supreme Religious Leader has declared the use of nuclear weapons an abomination, or a sin against God. In modern times, perhaps there is still an important place and use for ethical-religious reasoning, a religious democracy, especially in light of America's absurd foreign policies and its suicidal tendencies.

    In the U.S., the breakdown of "pro-life" religious and moral constraints has led to a foreign policy based on covetousness and self-righteousness, instead of honesty, integrity, justice, respect, and equality. 

The U.S. Navy will take the brunt of casualties in the Gulf
Consider the lies and misrepresentations and distorting of facts surrounding the preemptive war against Iraq. Not only were weapons of mass destruction never located, but the war cost Americans trillions of dollars and killed 5,000 U.S. troops. Almost one million Iraqis were died while millions more became homeless refugees. But this is what occurs when American Exceptionalism and militant materialism violates the basic principles inherent in objectivity, honesty, empathy, and respect. Militarily forcing others to live up to standards the U.S. routinely violates, like torture and preemptive war, is clearly a violation of the principles inherit in justice and equality.

    As in many other parts of the world, the U.S. is no longer pursuing ethical reasoning in its foreign policy or decision making processes. If it wants to truly improve relations with Iran and other nations, it must start to develop and acquire the principles of understanding and integrity. Recall that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights encourages "...recognition of inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world...Disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind..." The U.S. could model this kind of ethical reasoning by withdrawing all of its soldiers and military fortresses from the Persian Gulf. It should also recognize Iran's right to pursue peaceful nuclear energies for hospitals and universities.

Unlike the U.S., Iran has not trespassed nor invaded other peoples sovereign territories. Neither has it instigated ongoing wars and conflicts that have led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and caused millions of refugees. At some point, the U.S. must recognize its delusional internalized realities are not mirroring the realities of the global community, let alone its appalling behavior. Calling the withdraw from Iraq a serious mistake, or believing U.S. leadership in the Persian Gulf is "essential," merely reveals more unethical-unreligious reasoning. With this kind of immoral thinking, expect more suicidal conflicts and more alienated and suicidal veterans.(1) If the U.S. continues to punish Iran and other popular movements, beware of a gnawing hunger that will someday eat the flesh of the usurper.(2) 

    Be forewarned too that too much sacrifice can turn a heart to stone.(3)

Rice Says U.S. Must Bring Down Iran Government


The books, giving each other medals, now Rice plays hand at "hide in plain sight;"  instead of hiding like any sane person about to be charged with War Crimes would, pulls a Rove/Cheney:  Go on Prime Time, spout the most outrageous bullshit possible, remain unrepentant, warmonger

Why is this woman not in jail?  Why are Bush, Rove, Rumsfeld and the rest still walking around free?  Why hasn't Rove been forced to comply with subpoenas issued years ago compelling him to testify?

Former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says Washington must never take the military option off the table and do everything in its power to bring the Iranian government down.

    Rice told This Week political affairs program of ABC television network on Sunday that the US should consider even tougher penalties against Iran's government and “be doing everything we can to bring it down.” 

Insane, power-mad, thinks she's omnipotent, gender confused
She stressed that the US should never take the option of military force off the table when it comes to dealing with Iran, AP reported.

The US and its allies have intensified their anti-Iran rhetoric ahead of the IAEA report on the country's nuclear program.

On November 4, Israeli President Shimon Peres said that an attack on Iran was becoming increasingly more likely.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the Knesset October 31 in an effort to garner support for a military attack on Iran over its nuclear program.

    Supported by Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, Netanyahu argued that Israel should proceed with efforts to encourage the West to exert more economic and political pressure on Iran.

    He also emphasized that any action against Iran should be carried out in full coordination with the United States.

    Israel, which is widely believed to possess over 300 atomic warheads, along with the US accuses Tehran of pursuing a military nuclear program.

If Iran is attacked, there will be a lot more of this
Under pressure from Washington and Tel Aviv, the UN Security Council has imposed four rounds of sanctions against Tehran. Washington and the European Union have also adopted unilateral measures against Iran's energy sector.

    While Israel refuses to allow inspections of its nuclear facilities or to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty based on its policy of nuclear ambiguity, Iran is a signatory to the NPT and has been subjected to snap International Atomic Energy Agency inspections due to its policy of nuclear transparency.

    Israel has recently test fired a new long-range missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads. The test was carried out at the Palmahim air base in central Israel.

    This three-stage Jericho-3 missile which is capable of delivering a 750-kilo warhead to a distance, is estimated to have a range of up to 10,000 kilometers.

    Paradoxically, the new nuke-capable missile, which can target many parts of the globe, is not considered a threat in the eyes of the West.

Ahmadinejad Says Iran Can Challenge U.S. Without Nuclear Weapons UPDATE 0135GMT

*  IAEA JUST GAVE OBAMA AND NETANYAHU REPORT SAYING IRAN HAS/WILL HAVE NUCLEAR CAPABILITY

All "new" intelligence coming out of U.S. "mainstream media" is ancient; desensitizing of sheep continues, war distinct possibility; a U.S. strike on Iran would open door for using 25th Amendment on Obama

Agencies
11/08/2011

 Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday that the Islamic republic did not need a nuclear bomb to confront the U.S., in comments made ahead of the release of a new report from the U.N. atomic watchdog.

     "If America wants to confront the Iranian nation, it will certainly regret the Iranian nation's response," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by the IRNA news agency. "They are saying that Iran is seeking the atomic bomb. But they should know ... we do not need a bomb ... Rather we will act thoughtfully and with logic. History has shown that anyone acting against the Iranian nation regrets it."

War with Iran an act of insanity
Earlier Tuesday, Iran's foreign minister Ali Akbar Salehi said during a visit to Armenia that the U.S. and other Western nations have no proof that Iran is developing nuclear weapons.

"There is no serious proof that Iran is going to create a nuclear warhead," Salehi was quoted as saying by AFP during a visit to Armenia. "The West and the United States are exerting pressure on Iran without serious arguments and proof. We have repeatedly stated that we are not going to create nuclear weapons."

    The U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is set to release a report Wednesday detailing new evidence of Tehran's drive to make nuclear weapons.

     The report points to a former Soviet weapons scientist who allegedly tutored Iranians to overcome key technical hurdles, The Washington Post reported.

     Iran also was helped over the threshold of nuclear capability via crucial technology linked to experts in Pakistan and North Korea.

     Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei told reporters Tuesday that Tehran should "show flexibility and sincerity and engage in serious cooperation with the agency" while urging the IAEA to be "just and objective."

     "China is against the proliferation of nuclear weapons and opposes the development of nuclear weapons by any country in the Middle East region. It is imperative to prevent new turbulence in the Middle East security situation," Hong said.

    The upcoming IAEA report is likely to further stoke simmering global tensions over Iran, with Israel considering the possibility of a preemptive strike and the UK said to be making military preparations to support any U.S.-led action against the Islamic nation.

    On Monday, Ahmadinejad said the U.S. and Israel feared Tehran's atomic program but insisted that it was for peaceful purposes only.
