I listened to an item on Today this morning in which IAEA supremo Mohammed AlBaradei was praised for his constructive engagement with the psychotic Iranian regime. Given that the Mullahs have run rings around the IAEA for years now, I wondered exactly WHO the BBC had found that holds such a view? Step forward Hans Blix! Remember him? He was the guy who set himself up as an arch enemy of George W Bush and an appeaser of Iran and thus he becomes a BBC hero. And as for the fulsome praise for Mr AlBaradei, I suppose it is justifed seeing as he has come out and declared that the biggest threat to peace in the Middle East is…ISRAEL.

    I’m willing to bet that they didn’t mention this was the same Hans Blix who when heading the UN atomic commission (IAEA) investigating nuclear weapon development in Saddam’s Iraq,  in the late 80’s and 90’s denied continually that Iraq was engaged in such a project.
    Until Israel destroyed it!

    The fact that he was used again by the UN after this fiasco, and is given any credulity by the media shows where their allegiances lie.

    O/T here but has anyone else seen the lack of fuss the BBC is making over ‘Pakigate’? I guess if you’re NOT related to Maggie Thatcher the BBC doesn’t think racist comments matter?

    Kim Jong Il: Hans Brix? Oh no! Oh, herro. Great to see you again, Hans!
    Hans Blix: Mr. Il, I was supposed to be allowed to inspect your palace today, but your guards won’t let me enter certain areas.
    Kim Jong Il: Hans, Hans, Hans! We’ve been frew this a dozen times. I don’t have any weapons of mass destwuction, OK Hans?
    Hans Blix: Then let me look around, so I can ease the UN’s collective mind. I’m sorry, but the UN must be firm with you. Let me in, or else.
    Kim Jong Il: Or else what?
    Hans Blix: Or else we will be very angry with you… and we will write you a letter, telling you how angry we are.
    Kim Jong Il: OK, Hans. I’ll show you. Stand to your reft.
    Hans Blix: [Moves to the left]
    Kim Jong Il: A rittle more.
    Hans Blix: [Moves to the left again]
    Kim Jong Il: Good.
    [Opens up trap, Hans falls in]

    You must have missed the FOOC coverage of an Irishman who lives in Palestine and who’s converted to Islam. It was about as rosy and glowing as you could imagine.

    In a sense, the BBC’s adulation of both psychotic left wing ideologies and Islam isn’t as incoherent as it first seems – after all, both are out to destroy western Christendom.

    Teddy Bear, dunno about the dates. Israel destroyed Iraq’s nuclear reactor in 1981 or 2. Actually that was quite an event – the squad flying 50 feet above the Saudi Arabian and Iraqi deserts (in daylight) to avoid radar then taking turns to bomb the Koran out of the reactor, also at an incredibly low altitude, the last plane swooping down to take photo evidence of the damage from a few dozen feet.  It was so fast that I believe the Iraqi anti-aircraft guns failed to get off a shot – or at least any accurate shots. The Iraqis thought at first it was the Iranians because they were at war with them at the time.

    The Israelis attacked on a Sunday because they wanted minimum loss of life and they thought Hussein would give the foreign technicians the day off. In fact they were going to work but it was still too early and only one was killed.

    Re al Baradei, it seems clear that his function is simply to obfuscate, fiddle and delay to facilitate the development of the next Islamic bomb. But he is Egyptian so he’s probably a Sunni and as worried about Shia iran as any other Sunni. So I guess the jury is still out. Re Israel, well Mohammed al Baradei would hardly have anything positive to say about the country so I’m not sure that is even news. But he rarely speaks about Israel so it’s interesting that he’s opening his mouth now about the country.

    Too True – you’re right about my dates being off, but the facts nevertheless were correct. I gave the dates off the top of my head, but after rechecking, Blix was the director general of the IAEA from 1981-1997 and either was completely fooled by Saddam, or chose to turn a blind eye. Either way he announced that the Iraqis were not involved in trying to construct nuclear weapons, until it was shown otherwise.

    Guest 21:40:08,

    I couldn’t agree more.

    Teddy Bear,

    Blix is an idiot and a typical lefty appeaser of  dangerous tyrants.


  8. Teddy Bear says:

    TooTrue, Your assessment of Blix is one that any level headed normal thinker would conclude.
    So the worrying element is why the UN wanted to use him again in Iraq following his first failure, and why our media has failed to highlight this when reporting on events surrounding it?

    Another lie that has been repeated by our leftwing media in that there was no connection between Saddam and Bin Laden, forcing the conclusion that Bush and Blair had alternative motives for going into Iraq. In fact the Guardian itself reported in 1999 that Saddam had offered Bin Laden asylum in Iraq. This is before Bush came on the scene.

    There are sinister forces at work, and no coincidence that the word sinister derives from ‘left’.
