    So it seems that washington is thinking what I was thinking might happen. Essentially, they used this nuclear deal to influence Iran into their fold to counter Russia and China and get Iranian oil into Europe.

    In other words, they want to make Iran a vassal again to be uses against Russia.

    There was never a different plan just like Cuba being now used to be another slave after decade long punishment, abusement, bombardment of their state leaders with hundreds of assassination attempts all failed and torturing folks on their soil, occuping their soil and refusing the country to have any possibility of the so loved and so advertized free market the west always is proud off.

    Bit of a misfire on getting Iran 'into the fold'. After all, did Kerry expect Iran to fall in love with America after all the talk of nuking it, using Stuxnet to disable its facilities, assassinating its nuclear scientists and US supplying chemical weapons and intelligence to Saddam who managed to kill 600,000 Iranians during the Iraq-Iran war?

    This follows the "Iran’s military capabilities, including its ballistic missiles, are exclusively for legitimate defense; these equipment have not been designed for the capability to carry nuclear payloads and thus, fall outside the scope and the jurisdiction of the UNSC resolution and its annexes" comment last week.

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said a speech by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Saturday vowing to defy American policies in the region despite a deal with world powers over Tehran's nuclear program was "very disturbing".

    "I don't know how to interpret it at this point in time, except to take it at face value, that that's his policy," he said in the interview with Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television, parts of which the network quoted on Tuesday. "But I do know that often comments are made publicly and things can evolve that are different. If it is the policy, it's very disturbing, it's very troubling," he added.

    Ayatollah Khamenei told supporters on Saturday that U.S. policies in the region were "180 degrees" opposed to Iran's, at a speech in a Tehran mosque punctuated by chants of "Death to America" and "Death to Israel".


    Extracted from http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/07/21/us-iran-nuclear-kerry-idUSKCN0PV0KA20150721

    This article (with no reference to the transcript itself) gives the impression that he was screaming "death to America" during the speech, whipping his radical followers into an anti-American frenzy and handing out AK-47's and suicide bomb vests as they left the mosque. This article is very selective in the way it mashes quotes and its own commentary.

    "Whether the (nuclear) deal is approved or disapproved, we will never stop supporting our friends in the region and the people of Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain and Lebanon. Even after this deal our policy towards the arrogant U.S. will not change," he said, as cited by Reuters.

    Not reported by Reuters: "The Americans say they stopped Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. They know it's not true. We had a fatwa (religious ruling), declaring nuclear weapons to be religiously forbidden under Islamic law. It had nothing to do with the nuclear talks, "Khamenei mentioned.

    I saw the speech live; I don't know Farsi but I didn't hear anyone crying out during his speech - it was all rather calm and civilized actually, what was subtitled anyway, he read his prepared speech from a sheet for about 20 minutes or so, using some uncharacteristically strong language in places but overall it was fairly standard.

    I wouldn't expect such a speech to in any way reflect future Iranian policy either; it was just a celebratory statement really.
    However, at the same time, I hardly expect Iran to suddenly become best friends with America. They have way too many conflicts of interest. Iran will just carry on promoting its national interests and doing as it wants; if that brings it into more conflict with America than so be it - if America gives it some leeway though, they might keep from stepping on each others toes for a while.

    In economic-political integration terms; I definately think that Iran will move towards the SCO and BRICS - this is pretty much an Asia-wide trend now, and it will work to improve integration with Russia and China.
    However, at the same time, I feel that it's quite an independence-minded country and will always maintain some distance from any alliance. Now that the EU is open for business, Iran will work to build relations with them too, in order to provide some balance against too much dependence on Russia and China.

    Iran's leader calls for continued anti-US struggle

    As negotiators at Iran nuclear talks labored to make headway, the country's supreme leader called Saturday for the struggle against the U.S. to continue, in comments suggesting that Tehran's distrust of Washington will persist no matter what the outcome of the talks.

    Iran’s supreme leader slams ‘arrogant’ US



    Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of Iran, still hates the United States.

    “Even after this deal, our policy toward the arrogant US will not change,” he declared at a Tehran mosque, his speech punctuated by chants of “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!”

    The speech, given to mark Eid al-Fitr, the end of the holy month of Ramadan, was his first public comment on the landmark nuclear disarmament deal made last week with the United States and other world powers.

    Iran has no reason to love the US or Israel... these sanctions have been imposed based on the accusation that Iran was trying to get nuclear weapons... with no evidence two nuclear armed countries have imposed severe economic sanctions against a country they have no proof against for trying to develop nuclear weapons like the weapons they already have.

    All their bullying and sanctions give Iran every reason to want to have nuclear weapons, yet they have no evidence that they are trying to get a nuclear weapon capability...

    Why would there be any question as to whether they like Israel or the US or not.

    Iran Ballistic Missile Program is Unaffected by Nuclear Deal







    According to the latest reports stemming from the P5+1 talks, Iran is now insisting that UN sanctions on its ballistic missile program be lifted as part of a long-term nuclear accord.

    Iran is believed to have the largest strategic missile force in the Middle East, producing short- and medium-range ballistic missiles, a long-range cruise missile, and long-range rockets. Although all of its missiles are conventionally armed at present, its medium-range ballistic missiles could deliver a nuclear weapon if Iran were to build such a device.

    http://www.businessinsider.com/iran....ut-2015-7?IR=T

    The main Iranian ballistic missile force consists of Shahab 3, Shihab 3B and the newer Sejil-2 two stage ballistic missile.

    The Iranian Shahab-3B missile is said to be a derivative of the 1,000-1,300 kilometer range North Korean Nodong-1. The Nodong missile was developed by North Korea with Iranian financial assistance. In 2005 Iran claimed for the first time to have developed and produced a laser gyroscope INS system coupled with GPS as backup. With that guidance system, the Shahab-3B could archive an accuracy of around 30-50m CEP or even less. This new improved accuracy was apparently the reason why the warhead weight has been significantly decreased - to suggested 500-750kg. This, namely, is sufficient for pin-point target attack capability.

    Iran has successfully tested an optimized version of the solid-fuel Sejil-2 missile. This new version of the Sejil-2 is faster during the powered flight portion of its trajectory and also during the re-entry phase. It is also harder to detect for anti-missile systems, as it is covered with anti-radar material. The new highly maneuverable missile is also more efficient as it requires less amount of time for prelaunch preparations.

    Iran, like many non-Western countries still seems to understand the word 'honour'. 'Keeping your word' and 'telling the truth' seem to be part of the lost art of diplomacy in many countries now, especially those who have spent their future generations' wealth since the early 1970s and are now hopelessly in debt.

    The US team at the Talks was an example, almost no diplomatic/military/nuclear expertise, it was heavily Department of Commerce. Having failed to turn any of the countries the US has 'dealt' with recently into consumer led commerce customers for US multi-nationals and banks (those who pay the bills in Washington) since they are all wrecked, the US and the bankers are now desperate to get into an educated and young population country like Iran. Turning it into another debt laden basket case where the 0.1% financially rape the rest of the population.

    I just hope that the country's leaders keep their nerve as its going to be very tough withstanding the Western pressures, the bankers will show no mercy to get their way. The moment we see the 'Vampire Squid' Goldman Sachs in country we will know that their future is in really deep trouble.

    Well, well, how about this then?

    VIENNA, July 23. /TASS/. Iran may start liquefied natural gas (LNG) supplies to Europe in 5-10 years, Iran’s Deputy Oil Minister Amir Hossein Zamaninia told TASS on Thursday.

    Iran may increase gas production to 1.1 bln cubic meters daily by 2017 — official

    The deputy minister said such option is more preferable than building a gas pipeline to supply gas to European nations. Zamaninia said the price in Europe now is much lower than in South-East Asia and therefore there is no sense in pipeline gas supplies to Europe. Europe may become the market for Iranian gas in the mid-term, the official said at the Iran/EU investment and trade conference.

    Zamaninia said the EU always consumed Iranian oil. Europe may be a market for the Iranian gas in the mid-term and long-term, he added. The deputy minister said natural gas will remain the preferable energy source in the foreseeable future. Iran and the EU may reach long-term relations in politics and the economy and in oil and gas sphere, Iran’s deputy minister said.

    I agree with pretty much everything you said, but would add that companies like Halliburton that make lots of money in construction programmes... rebuilding countries the US military destroys... often it doesn't matter whether a consumer society is created... as long as the country derives income from oil exports you can trash a country like Iraq... how are they going to pay for the rebuild?

    As long as oil is cheap it is generally good for the US economy and the west in general... no matter who gets the contracts to actually pump the oil.

    In many ways the US has evolved into a vampire economy that chews up and spits out little countries... destroy them with your military and then charge them top dollar to rebuild and reap the benefits of cheap oil as a result...

    Pretty much nail on the head there Garry. Destroy the infrastructure, get the contracts for replacement along with military gear for self protection (lower standard of course), the combination carefully priced to take a high proportion of the oil revenue leaving just enough for food and nothing for indigenous investment. Target country now a forever vassal. Job done, get a bonus from the banksters.

    Problem with Iran is that neither the infrastructure or military was destroyed so (failing a strike) now the only way to bring them to heel is financial. Hence my 'vampire squid' reference. This 'war' is not over by a long chalk, its just that us, the public, will not see its actions as they are on screens in NY/LON.

    Iran to Buy 90 Planes Annually to Revamp Ageing Fleet

    Tehran plans to purchase around 90 Boeing and Airbus planes every year in a bid to upgrade its ageing fleet of commercial airliners, a senior aviation official said on Saturday.

    "We need to add 80 to 90 airplanes (to the fleet) each year in order to have 300 young and active airliners by the next five years," Mohammad Khodakarami, deputy head of Iran's Civil Aviation Organization, told Tasnim news agency in Tehran.

    Back in April, Iranian Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi announced preparations for major investment in Iran's civil aviation industry as soon as the international sanctions are lifted under a comprehensive nuclear deal.

    According to the minister, Tehran is in extensive talks with foreign companies to refurnish its air fleet and develop its airlines, the Tasnim report said.

    On July 14, Iran and the 5+1 Group of international mediators (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) finalized the text of an agreement on Iran’s nuclear energy program in Vienna.

    Later, the 15-memebr United Nations Security Council unanimously passed a resolution endorsing the text of the deal.

    Switzerland Lifts Sanctions Against Iran


    Swiss government calls lifting of sanctions 'a sign of its support' for nuclear deal's implementation.


    REUTERS - Neutral Switzerland will officially lift on Thursday sanctions against Iran that had been suspended since January 2014, the government announced on Wednesday, citing a deal last month between Tehran and six big powers to curb Iran's nuclear program.
    "The Federal Council (government) wishes today's steps to be seen as a sign of its support for the implementation of the nuclear agreement and its interest in deepening bilateral relations with Iran," a statement said.
    The deal that Iran struck with China, Russia, the United States, Germany, France and Britain aims to rein in Iran's nuclear program in return for relief from UN, EU and U.S. sanctions that were crippling the Islamic republic's economy.

    The Swiss sanctions had banned trade in precious metals with Iranian state bodies and set requirements to report trade in Iranian petrochemical products and the transport of Iranian crude oil and petroleum products.
    Switzerland will also introduce a new exemption clause that lets Berne implement UN Security Council resolutions on Iran.
    The government said Switzerland wished to "promote a broad political and economic exchange with Iran" but would monitor implementation of the nuclear deal.

    "Should implementation of the agreement fail, the Federal Council reserves the right to reintroduce the lifted measures," it said.

    Russia has offered Iran to localize a part of the production when acquiring Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft, president of Russia's United Aircraft Corporation Yuri Slusar said Wednesday.

    "The Iranian side expressed an interest in acquiring the Sukhoi Superjet 100. In return, we are offering large-scale localization of these aircraft in Iran," Slusar said.
    He added that the Iranian side has voiced its readiness to buy up to 100 aircraft.

    "The agreement on Sukhoi Superjet 100 deliveries could be signed here at the MAKS tomorrow if the negotiations are successful," Dr. Ali Vatani, the deputy for technology development of the scientific and technological department of presidential office told RIA Novosti.

    Iran signs MOU with China to cooperate in Chinese construction of two nuclear reactors at Chabahar




    TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi in a meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Beijing explored avenues for reinvigorating and bolstering mutual cooperation.

    During the meeting in the Chinese capital on Thursday, Salehi and Wang underlined the need for the further expansion of bilateral ties, specially in the field of nuclear cooperation.

    The Chinese foreign minister conveyed to Salehi an invitation letter for his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif to visit Beijing soon.

    Salehi arrived in Beijing on Wednesday morning for an official three-day visit.

    Salehi met Chairman of China's Atomic Energy Authority (CAEA) Xu Dazhe on Wednesday evening.

    During the meeting, the two sides signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on nuclear cooperation.

    Salehi also visited the China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC), China Institute of Atomic Energy (CIAE) and some other Chinese institutions which are active in field of peaceful nuclear programs.

    The AEOI is willing to develop cooperation with Chinese Atomic Energy Authority on construction of small new power plant with the capacity of 100 megawatts with cost-effective expenses in light of the capability to generate electricity for limited area, produce industrial steam plant and desalinate water.

    In relevant remarks on Wednesday, Salehi said Tehran was conducting negotiations with Beijing to construct two 100-MW nuclear power plants.

    "We are in talks with the Chinese over the construction of two 100-MW power plants," Salehi said, addressing AEOI staff in Tehran.

    He also referred to the contract signed with Russia on building two other nuclear power plants, and said, "God willing, the construction work will start this year."

    Salehi expressed the hope that 4 new nuclear power plants would start workshop operations in the next 3 to 4 years in Iran as well.

    He also referred to Tehran's achievements in nuclear talks with the world powers, and said, "They failed to materialize all their objectives, at least in technical aspects."

    "China and Iran are mulling a $1 billion deal that would see China trade 24 Chengdu J-10 fourth-generation fighter jets in exchange for control of Iran’s biggest oil field for two decades, a report in the Taiwanese newspaper Want Daily said Thursday. The oil field in question is the 350 square-mile Azadegan field, which produces around 40,000 barrels of light and heavy crude per day. It’s currently operated by the National Iranian Oil Company and is thought to be the largest oil discovery in the country in 30 years.

    The China National Petroleum Corporation had previously signed a $2.5 billion deal in 2009 to produce 75,000 barrels a day at the South Azadegan oil field over a 25-year period. However, work to develop the field for production was canceled in 2014 because strict sanctions imposed by the West against Iran were beginning to affect Chinese financiers of the deal. A similar $2 billion contract signed in 2009 for the North Azadegan field has continued throughout sanctions."
