Iran and the P5+1 world powers yesterday agreed to meet in Baghdad on May 23 after holding a "positive meeting" in Istanbul in which they agreed on almost nothing. Iran has no intention of halting plants that enrich uranium to 20% - well beyond what's required to generate electricity - and the U.S. has no intention of lifting the sanctions.

    Sure they agreed on something. The P5+1 nations agreed to continue to pretend that they would really do something to stop Iran from acquiring nukes, and the Iranians agreed to continue to pretend that they might be reasoned with on that subject. Agreeing to continue pretending is pretty much all that's needed to have western leaders say that a meeting was a "success".

    First, they need to stop Germany from providing Iran technology and the materials. Only then, will they stop Iran's nuclear ambitions. With SIEMENS still active as Iran's "nuclear pusher", Iran will continue to act stoically in the face of danger.

     

    Iran is laughing at the US and the UN, as they cannot even control Germany, who are acting in direct violation of several UN Security Council Resolutions.

     

    If the UN cannot even control it's Security Council, how should it ever hope to control a rogue state like Iran from being supplied with all the nuclear technology they want from Germany, themselves a UN Security Council Member?

     

    Germany is the key, put Berlin on notice to the world. If you are not with us, you are against us. Whatever happened to that?

     

    IMEADIATE SUSPENSION from UN Security Council, and cautionary probation, for a period of no less than five (5) years.

     

    This is no secret.

    At the annual shareholder meeting, which took place on January 24, 2012, in the Olympiahalle in Munich, a member of STOP THE BOMB confronted the Siemens board with questions regarding Siemens' Iran business. The Siemens Directors declared that they will continue to fulfill their "legal obligations" with Iran. The trade volume with Iran deals in 2011 amounted to 450 Million Euro. Siemens still runs a department in Tehran with 185 workers. The trade volume decreased 34% compared to the preceding year, which shows that it amounted to round about 682 Million in 2010.
