This is duelfers report



In testimony on the progress of the Iraq Survey Group on October 2, 2003 he revealed to House and Senate committees that the ISG had found that Iraq had a network of clandestine laboratories containing equipment that should have been (but was not) disclosed to the UN inspectors. He also said that the ISG found an undeclared prison laboratory complex and an undeclared Unmanned Aerial Vehicle production facility. The Iraq Survey Group also found out that a UAV had been test-flown out to a range of 500 kilometers even though the agreed upon limit was 150 kilometers. Iraq lied to the UN about the range of that particular UAV, Kay said.
He testified that Iraq had done research on Congo Crimean Hemorrhagic Fever and Brucella but had not declared this to the UN. Iraq also continued R&D work on anthrax and ricin without declaring it to the UN.
ISG found nuclear research materials and centrifuge parts hidden in the home of Iraqi nuclear scientist Mahdi Obeidi

Kay told the committees that between 1999 and 2002 Iraq attempted to obtain missile technology from North Korea that would allow them to build missiles with a range of 1300 kilometers, far beyond the UN limit of 150 kilometers that Iraq agreed upon in UN Resolution 687. They also sought anti-ship missiles with a range of 300 kilometers from North Korea.
"With regard to delivery systems, the ISG team has discovered sufficient evidence to date to conclude that the Iraqi regime was committed to delivery system improvements that would have, if OIF had not occurred, dramatically breached UN restrictions placed on Iraq after the 1991 Gulf War," Kay testified.

The Palestine Mandate
The Council of the League of Nations:
Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have agreed, for the purpose of giving effect to the provisions of Article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations, to entrust to a Mandatory selected by the said Powers the administration of the territory of Palestine, which formerly belonged to the Turkish Empire, within such boundaries as may be fixed by them; and
Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have also agreed that the Mandatory should be responsible for putting into effect the declaration originally made on November 2nd, 1917, by the Government of His Britannic Majesty, and adopted by the said Powers, in favor of the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, it being clearly understood that nothing should be done which might prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country; and
Whereas recognition has thereby been given to the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country; and
Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have selected His Britannic Majesty as the Mandatory for Palestine; and
Whereas the mandate in respect of Palestine has been formulated in the following terms and submitted to the Council of the League for approval; and
Whereas His Britannic Majesty has accepted the mandate in respect of Palestine and undertaken to exercise it on behalf of the League of Nations in conformity with the following provisions; and
Whereas by the afore-mentioned Article 22 (paragraph 8), it is provided that the degree of authority, control or administration to be exercised by the Mandatory, not having been previously agreed upon by the Members of the League, shall be explicitly defined by the Council of the League Of Nations;
confirming the said Mandate, defines its terms as follows:

For reference.

United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181

On 29 November 1947 the United Nations voted a plan for the partition of the British Mandate territory of Palestine to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict in the British Mandate of Palestine. The plan came to be called the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine or United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181. The plan was approved by the United Nations General Assembly by 33 votes to 13, with 10 abstentions.
The plan would have partitioned the territory of Palestine into Jewish and Arab states, with the Greater Jerusalem area, encompassing Bethlehem, coming under international control.
Initially the British had proposed a Palestine divided between a Jewish and an Arab State; but in time changed their position and sought to limit Jewish immigration from Europe to a minimum. This was seen by the Zionists and their sympathisers as betrayal of the terms of the mandate, especially in light of the increasing persecution in Europe (leading to the Holocaust). It was met with a popular uprising and guerilla war from Jewish and Arab militant groups, often viewed as one of several factors that forced the British to hand the problem of Palestine over to the United Nations. The failure of the British government and the United Nations to implement this plan, prior agreement between the Jewish Agency and King Abdullah to divide Palestine between them, and rejection of the plan by the Arabs resulted in the War for Independence, also known as the 1948 Arab-Israeli War.

Ok lets see if you can understand theres history pre 1953 and even 1948.. In regards to Iran.
How about Who ran Iran 1925-1941? Could it be the Shahs Dad? Reza shah Also lets be perfectly clear Of the time were talking about the Rise of Communism, And Fascism, National socialism, Pan arab ideals, Baathism was formed out of these movements etc.
His foreign policy, which had consisted essentially of playing the Soviet Union off against Great Britain, failed when those two powers joined in 1941 to fight the Germans. To supply the Soviet forces with war material through Iran, the two allies jointly occupied the country in August 1941. An autocrat and supporter of modernization, Reza Shah initiated the development of modern industry, railroads, and establishment of a national education system. Reza Shah sought to balance the influence of Russia and Britain by seeking out assistance and technology from European powers traditionally not involved in Iranian affairs, but when World War II started his closeness to Germany alarmed allied powers Russia and Britain, Germany's enemies.
In summer of 1941 Britain and the USSR invaded Iran to prevent Iran from allying with the Axis powers. The Allies occupied Iran, securing a supply line to Russia, Iran's petroleum infrastructure, and forced the Shah to abdicate in favor of his son, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

http://www.britannica.com/eb/article-6144/Reza-Shah-Pahlavi

Without world war 2 there would be none of these issues regarding Israel since the Holocaust is seen as the Main catalyst for the Jews getting there homeland. In regards to Iran as well its obvious the Communists and the British were involved not the USA we came later.


There are more copies of Mein Kampf sold in Arabic today than in any other language. In fact, the only volume more popular in Arab homes is the Quran.
The Arab world has the lowest standard of education in the world, save for sub Saharan Africa.
And why Are the protocols of Zion still being passed around as reality when they were debunked like 100 years ago :).


Again A piece of History is just that a Piece the puzzle must be put together.. Blame us First when you dont even recognize the sequence of events that led to our involvement its quite hillarious

    I'm fully aware of Irans history. I made a vid some time back. Which is why I know you failed to mention that the US and the UK were responsible for the coup d'etat which removed a democratically elected government.

    As for the "development of modern industry, railroads", yes, it helped get the oil out quicker, and wasn't done for the benefit of the Iranian people. Perhaps they would have preferred to hang onto their democracy.

    Whos bullying who? Hezzbollah started the war in 2006? By launching rockets at an israeli town crossing the border and killing and kidnapping Israeli soldiers.

    WHy is it that jordan, and Egypt that want nuclear power will get it because they are going through the IAEA and through the world to get such power and technology.. And the USA has no problem with this.

    IRAN was BUSTED RED-handed LYING they developed there program through AQ kahn a man only interested in selling weapons technology to the muslim world He even attempted to sell this to IRAQ but saddam thought it was a CIA plot..

    Iran can have nuclear power if it ONLY goes the right way about it not by Lying about it which it did?

    Why lie and cover up things if its only for peacefull purposes?

    When AQ made the bomb he did not SAY its the pakistani bomb he said the ISLAMIC BOMB..

    Bullying 3rd world countries.

    Look who was bullying it was NORTH KOREA threat after threat.. IF we did not give them fuel oil, food they would declar war? Let millions of there own people starve?

    Peace is not PEACE if your blackmailed for it

    Again pieces of a puzzle are just pieces you cant say oh 1953 project ajax without explaining or even trying to see what led up to it?

    The USA was not involved first it was British and the Russians that forced the Shahs father to hand over power to his son...

    That oil was being used by who? the Soviets, the British..

    Again wheres the Communist blame in any of this? All i see is people bashing the USA over something that in the beginning had nothing to do with US..

    Reza shah was axis leaning thats the main reason he was forced out thats what the Soviets and british used as an excuse to switch the reigns of power.

    Again when was america out there? As stated the US officially apologized for its action in operation ajax back in 2000.

    Again all this is connected with world war 2, communism, fascism, world war 1, the ottoman empire. Everything leading up to it.

    Whats the BIGGER picture? Teza shah also played the powers off each other. The reza also abolished the power of the tribes and disarmed them from my understanding..

    Again what democracy?

    Ahmad Shah Qajar was the Shah before Reza shah took over.. ..

    Mohammad Mosaddeq was ousted For a reason?

    Due to a multitude of disagreements with his former allies, especially the communists and Islamists, and disagreements with the Shah and with the parliament over his handling of talks regarding compensation of the British side, he dissolved the parliament using a referendum to avoid impeachment. This act was characterized as unconstitutional by some of his closest allies as well as opponents, and led to the Shah's dismissing him from office on August 16, 1953

    How about the CIA's involvement in Chile in 1973 ? Which lead to mass murders, and incarceration of people with different political views. Please stop blaming everything on communism or liberals; the US is not completely innocent, and you know it.

    THE CIA DID NOT EXIST man... when the Shahs dad was abdicated and his Son put in power in what 1941..

    The CIA was not created till when 1947?? Reza shah ran Iran from like 1925-1941...


    Again what are you talking about? Im talking about REZA shah and was referring to the other shah before him.


    Mohammad Mosaddeq was ousted For a reason?

    Due to a multitude of disagreements with his
    former allies, especially the communists and
    Islamists, and disagreements with the Shah and

    Again the Russians and the british were involved way before the USA was..

    What your referring to happened in what 1953? Im talking about all the events that led up to 1953..

    The CIA had nothing to do with Reza shahs removal since it did not exist.

    The CIA was Formed 26 July 1947..

    Again Im not sure what your refferring to the 1953 removal of Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh?

    Again Im referring of things up to 1953.. The reza Shahs son ran Iran from 1941-1979..

    And it was in defense of British oil interests not american oil interests regarding that so called coup

Most of the time this had to be accomplished by working with unsavory characters, which was the responsibility of the CIA.

    Yes the communists had already infiltrated western spy networks.. The nazis are the only ones that had any real experience against them... Ex nazis were pulled in extremely fast. Soviets also took some in as well though
