L’Europe, ou la trahison de soi-même

La condamnation de l’Iran pour l’attaque contre Aramco, solennellement proclamée par ce qu’on nomme les E3, – Allemagne, France & UK, – est une infamie complète, sans compter la stupidité et l’inculture de l’acte. Elle a été décidée lors d’une réunion en marge de la session de l’ONU, à l’instigation, nous dit Finian Cunningham que nous croyons sans peine, du Premier britannique Boris Johnson. Cette condamnation ne repose sur aucune preuve, même si la présomption n’est pas dénuée de fondement, – mais il s’agit dans ce cas d’une présomption de culpabilité alors qu’une déclaration solennelle qui se place d’elle-même, geste typique de suprémacisme anglo-saxon, dans le droit fil rouge du droit international traduit en anglo-américaniste, devrait d’abord s’en tenir à la présomption d’innocence. Dans ce cas, dit encore Cunningham que nous suivons encore, les E3 signataires du JCPOA ont liquidé le JCPOA pour répondre à la volonté capricieuse d’un homme à l’esprit complètement préoccupé d’un narcissisme projeté sur les ruines de l’empire américaniste en cours d’effondrement.

Que les Anglais préoccupés des restes assez rances du grand empire du Royaume-Uni, donc également en cours d’effondrement, que ces Anglais-là aient monté ce coup, aucune surprise à avoir ; la dernière chose qu’ils montreront avec l’Union Jack lorsque le navire achèvera de sombrer, c’est leur perfidie accordée à leur servilité pour leurs “cousins” d’Outre-Atlantique. Que les Allemands aient suivi, pas de surprise non plus : cette puissance émasculée diplomatiquement et politiquement, espionnée et privée de toute souveraineté par son protecteur-proxénète, mais assise sur de bonnes affaires qui tout de même commencent à prendre eau, a toujours su manier la servilité par contraste avec ses périodes de folies meurtrières. Que la France ait suivi...

Ces trois points marquent bien l’embarras où l’on se trouve de porter un jugement arrêté sur cette nation, au point où elle en est, avec un tel président à sa tête, alors qu’elle pleure un autre président qui fut plein de qualités si humaines et revigorantes, voire d’éclairs de grandeur politique, mais dont l’œuvre principale fut et reste la trahisonde ce dont il ne cessa de se réclamer.

Même si l’on croit à la “culpabilité” de l’Iran, la grandeur et l’honneur d’une diplomatie est d’aller à la cause première de la séquence, qui est la haine, la vulgarité, l’illégalité, la piraterie des actes américanistes contre l’Iran depuis des décennies (y compris 1953 et la chute de Mossadegh dont Obama président a officiellement reconnu qu’elle résultait d’une machination des USA), – et ces actes américanistes, d’une façon éhontée et stupéfiante de gangstérisme depuis l’arrivée de Trump et la sortir du JCPOA. Devant ces évidences, une diplomatie d’honneur et de grandeur et l’honneur devrait tirer les conséquences de ce qui précède en matière de responsabilité, d’autant plus aisément que la puissance américaniste est aujourd’hui réduite à la stupidité de la brute en déclin accéléré.

Macron a fait un discours remarquable pour le sens de la chosele 27 août, il est incapable d’en tirer toutes les conséquences dans soin action. Ainsi fixe-t-il sa véritable envergure d’homme d’État, et dans ce cas son incapacité de résister à un pouvoir dont on sait pourtant (pour ceux qui lisent la presse libre, pas pour les réseaux officiels, compris les services de renseignement de l’ère des Pieds Nickelés) qu’il est totalement à dérive comme une nef des fous dans une tempête répondant à une crise climatique dont nul ne sait ni le sens, ni les conséquences.

La position européenne ne fera que renforcer l’Iran dans sa volonté de résister, et peut-être même de frapper préventivement ; comme le Japon à Pearl Harbor, note Jacob Hornberger, sauf que Trump n’est pas FDR et que “D.C.-la-folle”-2019 est un déchet caricatural, une inversion dans le même registre de Washington-1941. La trahison de l’Europe par elle-même, exercice coutumier...

Johnson, Trump’s Jester versus Iran

Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson showed his true colors this week when he led the collapse of European support for the nuclear deal with Iran. What’s more, it was pathetically evident that Johnson was pandering to US President Donald Trump.

Since the clownish figure of “Boris” took over Downing Street in July, it was  predictable  that the hapless Johnson and his wobbly Brexit ambitions would make him ever-more reliant on the American president in order to negotiate a post-Brexit trade deal with the US. That, in turn, would mean Johnson being more sycophantic than British leaders usually are in indulging the White House and its foreign policy goals.

This week, predictions of Johnson’s kowtowing to Trump were fully delivered on, when he stabbed the nuclear accord with Iran in the back. On the way to the UN general assembly in New York, he  declared  it a “bad deal”.

It was an extraordinary U-turn by Britain which up to now had endorsed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the formal name for the nuclear deal, along with Germany, France and the European Union, as well as Russia and China. The accord was signed in 2015 by all of the above plus the US with the aim of lifting economic sanctions off Iran in return for curbs on its nuclear program.

When Johnson was previously British foreign secretary (2016-18) he fully supported the JCPOA in line with the European bloc, Russia and China. Up until this week, it was the US which had alone defied international consensus after Trump unilaterally reneged in May last year on America’s signature to the UN-endorsed nuclear treaty.

Now Britain’s Johnson has thrown his weight behind Trump’s repudiation of the accord. For the British premier to disparage the landmark nuclear agreement as a “bad deal” was an astounding turnaround in London’s policy. The British have gravely undermined the international consensus by pandering to Trump’s rhetoric about the JCPOA being “the worst deal ever” requiring renegotiation with tougher and wider restrictions imposed on Tehran.

The creepiness of Johnson is something to behold. Asked about the JCPOA on route to the UN, he said: “The reality is, as President Trump rightly said, it was a bad deal. It had many defects. Iran was and is behaving disruptively in the region. If it was a bad deal – and I’m willing to accept that, it had many, many defects – then let’s do a better deal. And I think there’s one guy who can do a better deal and one guy who understands how to get a difficult partner like Iran over the line and that is the president of the United States.”

As if he couldn’t ingratiate himself any further, Johnson then went on to describe Trump as a “very, very brilliant negotiator.”

And, of course, Trump, the fragile egomaniac that he is, was suitably delighted by those saccharin words. He lavished  praise  on his “good friend” Johnson, calling him “smart” and “a winner”. (Despite a supreme court in Britain this week sanctioning Johnson as lawless and a fraud for suspending parliament.)

For Washington, the sterling service Johnson is providing is to unravel the JCPOA in accord with how the American president dictates it should be. It is a wonder how the US and now Britain are allowed to unilaterally abandon international obligations based on spurious assertions.

The day after Johnson’s jumping tricks for Trump, the European Union was next in line for acting the fools for the Americans.

Britain, France and Germany – the so-called E3 – issued a  joint statement  in which they condemned Iran for carrying out air strikes against Saudi Arabia’s oil industry. Johnson had come to that dubious  conclusion  the day before without providing evidence. It was clear from his bluster that he had no evidence whatsoever but was merely parroting the Washington “highly probable” trope. Now though, the E3 were also endorsing the same accusations against Iran, again without any substantiating details to support their provocative claims of Iranian aggression.

Furthermore in their joint statement, it was also evident that France and Germany were shifting significantly towards the US and British position of repudiating the nuclear accord.

The statement read in part: “We reiterate our conviction that time has come for Iran to accept negotiation on a long-term framework for its nuclear program as well as on issues related to regional security, including its missiles program and other means of delivery.”

In addition, rubbing salt into wounds of insult, the European countries urged Iran to get back to diplomacy and to “refrain from choosing provocation and escalation.”

By going along with the US, British and Saudi demonization of Iran over the oil industry attacks on September 14, rather than investigating claims by Houthi rebels that they were responsible and not Iran, the French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angel Merkel are paving the way to collapse the JCPOA entirely.

Note how their call for a “longer-term framework for [Iran’s] nuclear program” and monitoring of “[Iran’s] missiles program” is tantamount to aligning with Trump’s demand for the JCPOA to be scrapped and renegotiated. No doubt, if it comes to that, the terms enforced on Iran will be even more onerous and intrusive than they already are under the existing nuclear accord. The bad faith and duplicity here shown by Western powers is staggering.

Following the joint statement by Britain, France and Germany, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani  slammed  the “baseless” allegations against his country as “destructive”.

Iran said the Yemeni Houthis had every right to self-defense after four years of relentless Western-backed Saudi aggression against that country. Instead of lecturing Iran, Britain’s premier Boris Johnson should stop selling weapons to Saudi Arabia, said Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif.

Notably too this week, US-backed Saudi air strikes  killed  at least 20 civilians in Yemen, including seven members of a family taking shelter in a mosque. Yet, Britain, France and Germany “condemned” Iran for aggression while stating “solidarity with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”

With mealymouthed duplicity, the Europeans said they continued to support the JCPOA. But it is patently obvious they are doing their best to eviscerate the accord.

Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi  said  of the European joint statement: “The statement showed that the European parties have no strength or willpower to counter US bullying.”

He said that the JCPOA has been in a dead-end since Trump’s withdrawal in May 2018 because of European “paralysis”.

What Britain’s Boris Johnson has done is obey his master’s voice in Washington and bring the European minions into the Trump fold of sabotaging the nuclear agreement. It’s a time-honored function of Britain-the-butler to serve US interests for hegemonic control over European affairs.

Incredibly, given all the damage and chaos inflicted on Europe by Johnson’s Brexit shambles, it is apparent that clueless European leaders can nevertheless be still played along for fools by Uncle Sam’s court jester in London.
