PressTV: ‘US threat to nuke Iran is criminal’

Sat Dec 24, 2011 1:46PM

Francis Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois

A distinguished American expert on international law says the US government threatening Iran with nuclear war amounts to internationally accepted criminal act.

Francis Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois at Champaign, further noted that when Obama administration officials say “all options are on the table,” against Iran, they are, in fact, alluding to a nuclear war which is prohibited by international law.

Addressing the 18th conference on “Direct Democracy” in Feldkirch, Austria, on nuclear deterrence, Boyle added that the US government is threatening to attack Iran “under the completely bogus pretext” that it might have a nuclear weapon.

He added that as the sole global authority to monitor nuclear activities, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has already refuted charges against Iran as “simply not true.”

The legal expert stated that Article 2 of the UN Charter “prohibits both the threat and the use of force except in cases of legitimate self-defense” and the US wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan, “do not qualify under that definition.”

The professor also said that nuclear weapons and “nuclear deterrence” have “never been legitimate instruments of state policy, but have always constituted instrumentalities of internationally lawless and criminal behavior.”

Boyle noted that the former US President George W. Bush’s doctrine of preventive warfare, which has not been officially repealed by Obama, was in fact, concocted by the Nazi lawyers for the Nazi defendants at Nuremberg and was rejected at that court.

“If we don’t act now, Obama and his people could very well set off a Third World War over Iran that has been already threatened publicly by (the former President George W.) Bush Jr.,” he asserted.

He added that the governments of all the nuclear weapons states – including US, Russia, France, Britain, China, India, Pakistan, and North Korea – are “criminal” for threatening to exterminate humanity.

“If mass extermination of human beings is a crime, the threat to commit mass extermination is also a crime,” Boyle said.

The professor noted that the US today is engaged in “ongoing international criminal activity” for “planning, preparation, solicitation, and conspiracy to commit crimes against peace, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and genocide.”

“The design, research, testing, production, manufacture, fabrication, transportation, deployment, installation, storing, stockpile, sale, purchase, and the threat to use nuclear weapons are criminal under well-recognized principles of international law,” Boyle added.

He concluded by saying that the leaders of NATO states which “go along with US nuclear policies are all accomplices as well.”

      Amazing! I used to get their stuff, but I never subscribed.I wasn’t crazy about their analysis :) Thanks and hugs, ~Jean

        Yeah, this is a major blow to the neocon hub. And what’s really cool is that they won’t be able to turn around and start crying ‘cyber attack’ because it turns out that this “world-class” terror/counter-terrorism site wasn’t even encrypting their customer data! It was all stored online as plain text – and now it’s all posted on the web in the same format – LOL

        There’s been another interesting thing going on over on Kerry Cassidy’s Project Camelot blog – I was watching for updates, but I don’t see anything past 12/22 so I guess she hasn’t heard more, But…somewhere out here (I can’t remember if it was Ben, or ???) there was a post about the first transactions in the ‘new’ banking system taking place? This is what Kerry posted:
        12/21 Extremely Unusual Banking Activity
        It has taken me until this morning to get the ok to release this info. The following is from a source with substantial background in the financial sector (both traditional and unorthodox by the way)…

        Systems Stat – Current UST (United States Treasury) in Lock down on Currency comp upload of all Exotic & Major Currencies in progress, NOW.

        * Pentag*n & all upper level 3 letter agencies on 24/7 call in conference concerning re-adjustments of Worldwide currencies in action for 48 hr. systems from BIS have been activated.

        * All currencies reading 00.000 on all Bank computer screens. Active NOW.

        * Cannot get any answers from ABN AMRO, BOL (Bank Of London) UBS, Credit Swiss, or any other Major World Banks on what is taking place.

        * Have never seen this before. Ever, Anywhere!

        * Analise – Unknown

        * System status – Unknown

        * This could be a system adjustment. – Unlikely.

        * Conclusion – Unknown at this time. – Extremely Unusual Banking activity.

        12/22 Update
        * Up-Date – 12/22/11 5:17 P.M. EST

        * Systems Stat – Current UST Lock down still in effect, although the extra teams have been allowed leave as most of Computer Up-Loading is now in Place.

        * Two of the 3 Letter Agencies still in Lock down. Conformation from 4 sources (Pentag*n, 3 Letter, Local Banks) have Confirmed this is taking place.

        * Banking Screens on 138 different Currencies still Showing 00.000 , Although fluctuations in Rates are beginning to appear.

        * Still no Answers from European Banking System, however they have been notified to expect a large change in all Currency Rates.

        * Again, We have never seen this before and neither have the Banks.

        * Analysis – Not enough Data at this time to support any type of Conclusion.

        * Critical – An Attempt will be made to by B.I.S. (Bank of International Settlements), IMF, W.B. (World Bank) U.S.T. to Re-Align or to RV (Revalue) all Currencies Worldwide Simultaneously. I Repeat Simultaneously. This has never been attempted in the History of Modern Banking. Ever.

        * This is scheduled to take place within a 24 to 72 Hour period from NOW. *NOTE – Still unknown if this is physically possible.

        * We are not sure what to Expect at this time. We are following it hour by hour.

        * Conclusion – Unknown – Extremely Unusual Banking Activity.

        Interesting, huh? I’m not sure what happened after that – I can barely understand what she’s talking about (ha) but it sure sounds intriguing! It occurred to me that this took place on Thursday in the U.S., but it would be Friday in other countries – and most banks don’t run an update between Friday and Monday (may be Tuesday this week due to the holiday) . Keep an ear to the ground I’ll let you know if she posts an update.

          Drink, I’m just getting to read this now, but I’d already read much of it before. Yes, something is going on, and my sense is that they are getting ready to announce the new banking system, which I have talked about for a long time. Well, the important persons talking about have been Ben and David – and probably others whose names I don’t come up with now. This is the beginning of NESARA . . . or, at least, I hope it is.

          Before I read your comment, I made another similar post . . . check it out . . . and yes, if you are able, please keep your ear to the ground . . .

          Merry Christmas and hugs,
          ~Jean
