IAEI Chief Whines About Israel



The UN, specifically Chief UN nuclear watchdog Mohamed ElBaradei, is a bit upset that he was not consulted prior to Israel bombing Syria’s nuke facility.  We all know what a bang up job he and his crew has done over the years right?

Chief UN nuclear watchdog Mohamed ElBaradei Sunday accused Israel of
taking “the law into their own hands” with a raid on Syria, and
demanded more information about what was hit.

Neither Israel nor the United States has furnished “any evidence at
all” to prove that the Syrian site bombed last month was a secret
nuclear facility, the director of the International Atomic Energy
Agency told CNN.

“That, to me, is very distressful because we have a system; if
countries have information that the country is working on a
nuclear-related program, they should come to us. We have the authority
to go out and investigate,” he said.

“But to bomb first and then ask questions later, I think it
undermines the system and it doesn’t lead to any solution to any
suspicion, because we are the eyes and ears of the international

What a joke. 

Israel understands, from experience, that the UN will not lift a finger to prevent Syria from getting a nuke.  Case in point Iran.

The IAEA first reported that Tehran had failed to comply with its
obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in 2003.

980 days later,
on March 29, 2006, the Security Council finally became seized of the
matter of Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Since then we have watched how long
it will take the Security Council to live up to its UN Charter
obligations to (a) determine Iran’s behavior constitutes a threat to
international peace and security, and (b) take serious action to
maintain peace and security.

ElBaradei and the UN are incompetent, corrupt lackeys. There is no use for the organization in its present state.  A world body that puts the worst dictators on a human rights commission has become a joke.  A joke which needs to be dismantled piece by piece. 

Caroline Glick wrote a piece on the UN just today which fits nicely with ElBaradei’s whining:

Take for example the head of the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency Muhammad elBaradei’s recent remarks on the subject. Speaking to Le Monde on Monday, elBaradei asserted that it will take Iran between three to eight years to acquire a nuclear arsenal. Consequently, he argued, there is no reason to consider conducting a military strike against Teheran’s program. There is still plenty of time for diplomacy, or sanctions or even incentives for the ayatollahs, he said.

ElBaradei’s statement is only interesting when it is compared to a statement he made in December 2005 to the Independent. Back then Baradei’s view was that Iran was just “a few months” away from producing atomic bombs. But then too he saw no reason to attack. As he put it when he warned that Iran was on the precipice of nuclear weapons, using force would just “open Pandora’s box.” “There would be efforts to isolate Iran; Iran would retaliate, and at the end of the day, you have to go back to the negotiation table to find the solution,” elBaradei warned.

Given that the IAEA’s Egyptian chief has been unstinting in his view that no obstacle should be placed in Iran’s path to nuclear bombs, what makes his statements from 2005 and today interesting is what they tell us about his changing perception of the West’s intentions. At the end of 2005, he was fairly certain that the West – led by the US – lacked the will to attack Iran. By making the statement he made at the time, he sought to demoralize the West and so convince it that there was nothing to be done to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.

Now, when faced with a real possibility that the US or Israel or a combination of states are ready and willing to attack Iran’s nuclear installations, elBaradei seeks to undermine them by questioning the salience of the threat.

Sometimes it seems that the only reason elBaradei is in place at the UN is to ensure that enough Muslim nations get
nuclear weapons so that when they attack Israel they have a reasonable
chance of succeeding at their goal, specifically wiping Israel off the map.  How else can we view his conduct?  A few years ago when we thought Iran was just about to get that nuke he didn’t want any action taken against Iran.  A few years later he says Iran is many years away from a nuke, so no action taken either.  Oh, btw, according to Debka the US and Israel has solid evidence that Syria was trying to get a nuke….much better evidence then we have on Iran:

President Bashar Assad was personally involved in Damascus’ nuclear deal with Pyongyang. Documentary proofs of this, obtained from the presidential bureau and signed by Assad in person, are now in the hands of the US and Israeli intelligence services, DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources report. In one, Assad hands down a specific order in his own handwriting that North Korea not be charged for Syrian goods, including an annual shipment of 100,000 tons of Durham wheat for five years worth a total of $120 million. This is the equivalent of the value of the reactor for producing plutonium up to its most radioactive stage, which North Korea promised Syria.

A high-ranking Western intelligence source speaking to DEBKAfile described the evidence against Assad in US and Israeli hands as solid and much closer to a smoking gun than the West has turned up against Iran’s nuclear program.

And what does elBaradei and the UN want us to do with this kind of information?  Hand it over to them and then wait 3-4 years before they get around to sending a strongly worded letter of some sort.

What a disgrace of an organization.

Not yet ready for prime time is the news that is starting to drip out in the post analysis of the Syria site taken out is that there are right now two more places of interest within Syria that might be on the lets deal with this now rather than later list. You can gather this up if you know which blogs are even with their low profile originating from members who are active people in the intel establishment that carefully screen what little they are willing to put on the net for review.

Why in the world President Bush supported keeping this idiot in the U.N. is beyond me. Everything he has been involved with has been screwed up, but then so has everything the U.N. has been involved with since the day it was formed. No accomplishments, all failures, except for wasting billions of dollars of our taxpayer money.

If el Baradei wants to be kept in the loop, perhaps he needs to have something to offer.

STOP! Or we will say “STOP!” again!

Baradei is just another Blixm (see also Team America)

Oh, and let’s not forget

1) Hans Blix was head of the IAEA and almost declared Iraq free and clean just before the son-in-laws defected and revealed the nuclear program

2) el Baradei said Saddam didn’t have a nuclear program, but he completely washed over the fact that he could restart his program at any time because so much was still in tact, AND he dismissed the massive amounts of nuclear matl found in the country that could have been used for dirty bombs.

UN is Utterly Nonsense

They had their chance to stand up in the 90’s against Saddam, and instead kissed his ass for Oil For Food kickbacks

Since then, the org’s died.

The General Assembly is neutered by the block voting of the Organization of Non Aligned countries which is a group of over 100 of smallest players who only vote to keep the welfare rolling in and letting the good times roll.

Hey Curt

Could you please change the default for email notification to off so you have to opt in instead of having to opt out every time you comment.

JustADude, great suggestion and now fixed. Thanks.
