Why would Tero Varjoranta, the deputy director general and the head of the department of safeguards of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) responsible for inspections of nuclear facilities in Iran resign? The answer is simple, he wanted nothing to do with Donald Trump’s false flag actions against Iran!
Thankfully, these inspectors have some integrity.
Don’t forget we have John Bolton in office. This is the same guy who went to the retired Brazilian diplomat, Jose Bustani, who was then serving as the director general of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), was trying to negotiate with Iraq and Libya to allow chemical weapons inspectors into their borders and to have them agree to destroy their chemical weapons, and said: “You have 24 hours to leave the organization, and if you don’t comply with this decision by Washington, we have ways to retaliate against you,” he reportedly continued. After a pause, Bolton reportedly said, “We know where your kids live. You have two sons in New York.”
The US was reportedly not fond of Bustani’s outreach to Iraq and Libya, and Bolton, who was one of the primary architects of the Iraq War that began in 2003, himself visited Bustani to pressure him to step down from his post. “We can’t accept your management style,” Bolton told Bustani in 2002, as Bustani recounted to The Intercept.
Bustani was taken aback by Bolton’s directness, but did not back down, according to The Intercept.
“John Bolton is a bully,” Bustani told The Intercept.
Bustani told his family about the encounter, and his son-in-law, British politician Stewart Wood, said the incident stuck out in his memory.
Bustani told his colleagues at the OPCW about the encounter, and one former official who was in the room at the time, Gordon Vachon, said Bolton had made another threat to Bustani as well.
Vachon told The Intercept that he recalled Bolton saying Bustani “could go quietly, with little fuss and restraint on all sides and ‘without dragging your name through the mud,'” he said.
And so, here we are in 2018, and Varjoranta’s suddenly resigns just days after the decision of the United States withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.
“The Director General appointed Massimo Aparo Acting Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Safeguards on 11 May 2018. Prior to this, Mr Aparo was Acting Director, Office for Verification in Iran, since 1 March 2016,” the press service of the agency said in its website.
US President Donald Trump earlier this week announced that the United States would withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The president also vowed to re-impose the highest level of economic sanctions against Iran in response to Tehran’s development of its nuclear program.
History is repeating itself. We know now, Iraq no Chemical Weapons were found in Iraq. And Bush’s pretext for war was completely erroneous. Trump, it seems, will be repeating history.
Don’t get me wrong, Iranians hate the Mullahs. But, Iranians don’t want to become another Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan or Syria. Once again, millions of Iranians will die, in a manufactured war, and millions more will become refugees around the globe.
By the time war begins in 2019, Britain will be out of Europe, and the Europeans will be ‘forced’ to eat these Iranian refugees! Brexit was NOT a coincidence. This has been a multi-year, systematic effort on the part of “West” to completely and utterly undermine Iran and Iranians.
War is afoot. And the outcomes will be tragic. Worst of all, it will be undertaken once again on a false pretext.
