IRAN ACCUSES SIEMENS OF SABOTAGING ITS NUCLEAR EQUIPMENT

If you’ve been following the ongoing nuclear soap opera regarding Iran’s nuclear program, then maybe you missed this one:

Iran Accuses German Siemens Of Sabotaging Its Nuclear Plant As Turkey Sends Heavy Weapons To Syria Border

Now, I’ve been maintaining for many many years that Germany is one of those “crypto-nuclear” powers, and indeed, have posted a number of articles here about their capabilities. Siemens is one of those companies that was heavily involved in Germany’s postwar nuclear industry.

Zero Hedge’s conclusions here are, in my opinion, entirely correct:

“…after Stuxnet one would expect nothing less than every form of conventional and “new normal” espionage thrown into the pot to cripple the only peaceful argument Iran would have for demanding nuclear power, which by implication would mean that all ongoing nuclear pursuits are geared solely toward aggressive, military goals, of the type that demand immediate military retaliation by the democratic superpowers. No, what is stunning is the implicit admission that Germany’s, and Europe’s, largest electrical engineering company, has been not only quietly transacting with none other than world peace (as portrayed by the MSM) enemy #1, Iran, but instrumental in its nuclear program.

“Obviously it took a Stuxnet second before Siemens denied everything and then some. Via Reuters:

‘Siemens denied the charge and said its nuclear division has had no business with Iran since the 1979 revolution that led to its current clerical state.’

As noted in the article, Zero Hedge also suspects certain Companies in Langley, Virginia, as being involved, and again, I think they’re on to something. After all, it wouldn’t be the first time that that Company has sold equipment and or software to an “enemy” with the express purpose of sabotage. One need only think here of the whole relationship between INSLAW, its PROMIS software program, and the famous (or, if you’re Russian, infamous) Farewell Spy case, were a French mole inside the KGB (or those incorrigible French!) helped orchestrate the “theft” of some tainted software into the Soviet Union, which was used by American intelligence to blow up a Soviet gas pipeline.

Zero Hedge continues:

“Siemens rejects the allegations and stresses that we have no business ties to the Iranian nuclear program,” spokesman for the Munich-based company Alexander Machowetz said.

“Oh well, Iran must have bought all those Siemens nuclear centrifuges, concrete dome and steam plant in near perfect condition on eBay from anonymous sellers (who accept PayPal and even credit cards as long as the purchase does not have an Indonesian shipping address).”

The inevitable result of all these shenanigans is eminently predictable. If Iran’s nuclear program was indeed intended for peaceful purposes as its ayatollahs have consistently reassured us(a proposition I for one find very dubious), the actions of western companies in planting deliberate sabotage devices can only propel such programs into unpeaceful directions, and to seeking other “business partners” from which to purchase the necessary equipment, like Russia and China, thus driving Iran more and more into the orbit of those two countries.

Now, there’s a question that persistently goes unanswered here: if Iran’s nuclear program is of such concern because it has the equipment (via Germany) to enrich uranium, why isn’t anyone questioning what Germany is doing with such technology in the first place, when their treaty obligations forbid the production of atomic, biological, or chemical weapons on German soil? Why is it acceptable for Germany(and, for that matter, the other great Western nuclear proliferater, France) to proliferate nuclear weapons-capable technology to almost anyone, and not be acceptable for Iran to buy it?

There is a key theme here, and I hope you’re paying attention: France and Germany are the cat’s paws in the game of deliberate nuclear proliferation, and, if Iran’s accusations are credible, sabotage (can anyone say Fukushima here?). Why the theater? Because most people will simply not even understand that there are probably technologies much more deadly – and much more usable – than nuclear or thermonuclear weapons. (Think weather derivatives here, folks…and while we’re thinking weather derivatives, aint it funny that Ahmadenicablooey recently accused the USA of causing the draught in his country?)

See you on the flip side.

    I’m not sure how you feel about the reporting over at Veteran’s Today. My feeling is it can run from the outlandish to the very insightful, depending on who is doing the reporting. This jumped out at me in a report by editor Gordon Duff:

    “The bases were supplied through the Georgian port of Poti with cluster and bunker-buster bombs being delivered beginning June 10, 2010. Units of the Russian Navy observed the deliveries and reported the incident to a world press that suppressed the story. The ship delivering the illegal arms were flagged American, the USS Grapple.
    In consultation with intelligence operatives, it was found that the USS Grapple had been leased to Germany who had then allowed Israel to use it to deliver bombs to the Black Sea port under American naval identity.”

    I think this lengthy report is well worth reading as it dissects some of the motives, alliances, and military capabilities of some of the countries in Eurasian zone. My guess is an attack on Iran is going to result in a lot of land grabbing by many parties including Russia who may actually have this interest in mind and therefore might not be privately opposed to a western attack on Iran. And if things don’t go well for the western powers (Israel and the US) I think the Russians may not only see adversarial regimes topple including the US and Israel, they may also have an opportunity in seizing former Soviet regimes that were in league with the western attackers such as Azerbajan.

    I don’t know where Germany or China fit into this mix. Turkey, according to the article, hopes to annex 30% of Syria and maybe a few more neighbors as well. Maybe Germany is opting for neutrality and commercial gains while China will just land grab in the far east? It seems pretty clear that not just Israel and the US have cooked up a battle plan to get them a piece of the pie. I would even expect this thinking to spill over into South America.

    A lot more interested parties in a broader world war than I thought.

    Given the old Baghdad railway project and the proposed Quatar gas pipeline to connect with Nabucco through Syria it seems Germany has an interest in shoring up its Sunni sphere of influence at the expense of Iran and bypassing Russia as an energy provider.

    Given Iran’s northern region is Turkic and borders with the Caspian gas riches it makes sense that Iran is the stumbling block for German access to central Asian energy and balkanizing the country would suit its strategic aims.

    When looking at America’s foreign policy
    look toward Israel.
    They administer it, & the US implements it.

  5. Tor says:

    Yeah, Germany pursues the technology openly. Doesn’t seem to be a big deal. I would think we would be much more concerned about North Korea, but I still remember when they announced, “Hi people…We got Nukes now…Hope that’s not a problem.” We were busily pursuing those rusty barrels of fertilizer, gas cans, and an old broken down RV, in a some junk yard in Iraq, which was undoubtedly, a dangerous mobile weapons lab.

  6. Frankie Calcutta says:

    Germans intentionally pushing the Iranians to the side of the BRICs while transferring technology to them as well?

    I wonder if somewhere in this simmering, yet to be mideast conflagration, the behind the scenes string pullers in Germany are hatching a plan to evict, with political cover, some of the 18+ million Turkish guests now living in Germany? Possibly a Turkish invasion of Syria, condemned by Germany, will be the starting point? Pacifist indigenous German population pitted against a zealous pro-war minority of immigrants?

    Just a wild hunch.

      Hi Frankie,

      your wild hunch may not be so off-kilter as you think- but Germany is a lot better off with the amount of Islamics than Great Britain or France (just go to the Alsace in France on the German border)- due to the thousands of workers employed there in the Peugeot car factory you’ll hear more Turkish “mük-lük” or Arabic “allowachazhim” than French or Alsatian German-

      and it never ceases to amaze me how much Arabic/Turkish I hear spoken by passers-by on the streets here in SW Germany- but: Russian is just as common-

      I just think that all of this induced “multi-cultural” mish-mash is a despicable agenda of conflict-lovers who will financially/politically profit from induced strife

      hope you are well- regards-

      Larry

        sorry to have been slightly off-topic with my previous posting- but if Iran is accusing Siemens of sabotoging it’s nuclear equipment and knowing Siemens’ miserable track record of designing something as simple as the initially disasterous street car systems of Nancy (France) and Basel (Swizterland), how could one assume that everything “Made in Germany” is infallible?-

        it isn’t- I know- I live in Germany-

        maybe Iran discarded Siemens because of its fallibility and the whole thing reported in the press was a complete 180 degree turn of the truth- we’ve been through this before

  7. terminally skeptical says:

    I recall a story from a few years of how a suspected CIA virus was downloaded by an Iraqi or Iranian scientist and later unwittingly uploaded by him onto the operations program of their nuclear power plant. The facility became infected and incapacitated despite prophylactic measures taken to keep the outside world from tampering.

    But now we’ve stepped into a new era where the latest weapons are invisible and leave us almost nostalgic for the days when wars were wars and you could tell a war by a confluence of bombers, fighters, cruise missiles etc. Cyber currency sabotage and bogus gold, manufactured droughts and floods replace fields laid to waste by ballistics, man-made earthquakes born of the same technology as invisible beam weaponry. Tricks of modern warfare all hidden in plain sight. Considering that Israel possesses the same scalar technology that brought down the 9-11 towers and that Germany used to bring down the Russian ICBM in Norway December 2010 why is Israel still concerned about Iran’s ability to manufacture weapons grade fuel?

      They have purposely been destroying economies/currencies for sometime, in order to get their wet dream realized:
      A One World Currency(electronic),
