China ‘not OK’ with joint statement on Iran

[China's] reluctance reflected the East-West divide among the six world powers that just two weeks ago appeared to be in agreement about how to engage Iran over enrichment and to persuade it to give up technology that could be used to make nuclear arms.
Emphasis on "appeared to be." Administration officials are, after all, masters of deception.
"China is not OK and Russia might follow" Beijing's lead in opposing the joint statement, said a diplomat accredited to the meeting, [on condition of anonymity].

Another diplomat said China appeared to be feeling pressure from the Nonaligned Movement, which last month emphatically backed Iran in its nuclear standoff with the West.

Russia's stance was less clear. But Moscow for months has hindered attempts by the United States and its European allies to turn up the heat on Iran in the U.N. Security Council.

[S]igns of discord Monday reflected continuing differences despite the public show of unity.

One diplomat said Britain, France and Germany - the three European nations participating in the six-nation Iran package - were modifying a draft statement on Iran hoping to secure Moscow's and Beijing's backing on a final version.

Other diplomats spoke of more potential divisions. China, Russia and possibly Germany might push to allow Iran some tightly controlled small-scale enrichment rather than see talks founder.

Russia and China also might balk at enforcing selective U.N. sanctions on Iranian officials and activities.
But of course, the US won't settle for anything less than a green light for military action.
Chief U.S. delegate Gregory L. Schulte called on Iran to respond positively to the offer for talks - and suspend enrichment . . .

"The next decision needs to be taken not in Vienna but in Tehran," Schulte told reporters.

[But, when] asked if Iran would suspend enrichment for the sake of negotiations, spokesman Gholam Hossein Elham repeated the government line that enrichment is Iran's "obvious right."
You can see where that's going - NOWHERE. Just where the US wants it to go.

You heard it here first.., well sort of. Our country the United States of America is probably going to bomb the hell out of Iran. It was supposed to occur this month or next, but with this latest propoganda drive it could occur even later.

Chinese leaders are practically salivating at the idea of the US/UK getting bogged down in Iran without any international support. The already over-stretched US military will then be half a world away and completely incapable of doing anything to stop China's long-term goal of repatriating Taiwan.

US leaders are total idiots. Any PC strategy gamer knows there is a limit to how many armies you can build and maintain and thus a limit to how many places you can use military might. Any PC "tycoon" gamer knows that if you deficit spend long enough, you won't even be able to make the interest payments.

They have lied so much and so often that they have lost touch with reality and believe that the laws of math don't apply to them. The laws of nature don't care about fantasies and the crash of the superpower will be quite enjoyable to watch!

They crash of the superpower may be quite enjoyable to watch, for some, but unfortunately the ones responsible will not be the ones who suffer. They will be rewarde for doing their jobs perfectly.

The destruction of the US is the main part of the NWO plan, so things are going along right on schedule.

"Or suppose a king is about to go to war against another king. Will he not first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand? If he is not able, he will send a delegation while the other is still a long way off and will ask for terms of peace." (Luke 14:31-32)

A lot of anonymouses tonight, including me.

The neocons are all total idiots sitting in their ivory towers, never having experienced the hell they order other people into on their behalf and they laugh at the one they consider a real idiot - George Bush, who truly believes he makes decisions.

Some day, the Chinese will be marching over our land and it will all happen because of these idiots.

Absolutely correct that the US is determined to war with Iran, and plunge the middle east into hell - order out of chaos and all that. America will move the goalposts and demand outrageous capitulation and perhaps toss some synthetic terror into the mix.
It will quickly go nuclear, and not just the depleted uranium.

There was a time when countries, especially the commies ones, boast of a five year plan to do this or a ten year plan to do that, like building one thousand schools or doubling the number of hospitals etc etc. but uncle sham being the kind of philanthropist that he is, thinks that charity begins at other peoples homes. So he concocted a five year plan to do seven nations, I mean spread democracy to Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and (altogether now) Sudan. With iraq down, Syria and libya co-opted, Somalia down but not out, only iran is left.
I think the attack is on. after coming all this way and with the biggest prize in sight , to stop now would mean that everything achieved in this past years, at a cost of trillions of dollars, thousand of lives (not that it matters to them I guess), the trashing of us reputation in the world – all these would be for nothing.

china salivating at us’s impending disaster in iran ?
The invasion of iraq nullify all the Chinese oil deals with buddy saddam. China’s plan to run pipeline thru afghan become a pipedream after the fall of khartom.
They say follow the money, follow the oil. How about follow china. ?
Afghan, iraq, and now iran , sudan….where there’s china, theirs is uncle sham.
Why all this bleating about humanrights abuse in burma but not Indonesia or India for example? Hell burma is supplying natural gas to china for one.
Why was uncle sham badgering Malaysia and Indonesia to let us warships help patrol the Malacca straits ? let’s get it from the horse mouth, as a freeper at the free republic put it “if we ever want to get the Chinese by their balls, it would be at the Malacca straits where 90% of their oil pass thru”. Don’t dismiss the freepers as nut balls, their thinking usually mirror those in the cia or pentagon, great minds think alike sort of.
(I had a link to that insightful piece before, but I just lost five years of archive when I formated my hard disk recently after a virus attack, oh yes I don’t have a back up [sic], I can no longer find it in google, not even in their cache, previously I could retrieve any article from the google cache just by keying in some key words, even if the link had broken, but these days when a link is gone you cant even find it in the google cache, kinda weird)

“The fact that the biggest of these is China , and that America’s other foreign adventures also seem to have as their goal the control of energy supplies to that strategic rival, only adds further piquancy to what is, otherwise, an all too banal case of modern imperialistic meddling.”
China is seeing all its energy sources taken over one by one, I don’t think the Chinese would have time to gloat on uncle sham’s plight if another one, iran, bite the dust.

I still think that the Iran 'Nuclear Issue' is an excuse for an attack on Iran as the US response to the proposed Iranian move to sell it's oil in a currency other than USDollars. I wonder what will happen when russia furthers i's proposed ideas of establishing oil sales in Rubles....?
