Iran’s 20% uranium for hospitals is legal; Obama lies and pimps to attack Iran just like Bush

The Non-Proliferation Treaty, initiated by the United States, is clear:
Article IV: 1. Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with Articles I and II of this Treaty.
2. All the Parties to the Treaty undertake to facilitate, and have the right to participate in, the fullest possible exchange of equipment, materials and scientific and technological information for the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. Parties to the Treaty in a position to do so shall also co-operate in contributing alone or together with other States or international organizations to the further development of the applications of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, especially in the territories of non-nuclear-weapon States Party to the Treaty, with due consideration for the needs of the developing areas of the world.
Nuclear medicine requires medical isotopes for diagnosis, such as CT and bone scans, and treatment. For example, the US averages using medical isotopes over 40,000 times every day. The leading US professional organization, the American Nuclear Society with over 10,000 professional members, endorses nations’ inalienable right for the small amounts of 20% enriched uranium for this purpose. For a more technical explanation of Iran’s legal nuclear medicine needs, read this.
President Obama, like his war-making predecessor, is lying to the American public and the world regarding Iran’s lawful right to produce medical isotopes under the safeguards of the International Atomic Energy Agency. He claims the production of medical isotopes “leads to weaponization,” a fallacious “slippery slope” argument as valid as producing an x-ray machine “leads to killing people with radiation.”
“Despite the posturing that the nuclear power is only for civilian use ... they in fact continue to pursue a course that would lead to weaponization, and that is not acceptable to the international community.”
The US leading representative to other nations, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, also lies by omission that Iran has this lawful right, and instead chooses to discuss “regime change” with continued lie of omission that the US overthrew Iran’s democracy from 1953 to 1979 and then backed “regime change” by supporting an unlawful War of Aggression invasion of Iran from 1980 to 1988. This fascist propaganda is echoed by Obama’s national security advisor.
Moreover, Iran is in full compliance with NPT and the US is not. Iran's president NEVER threatened Israel; such a claim is perhaps the easiest propaganda to debunk by taking 5 minutes to read the alleged "threat" perniciously repeated by "leadership" and corporate media.
The deluge of lies similar to what preceded war with Iraq demands our expectation of a false flag attack by the US to kill our own citizens, blame Iran, and attempt to ride public outrage to war.
The 5-minute video below and written analysis here gives explanation to Ms. Clinton’s manipulations to blackmail for votes of sanctions against Iran.
This propaganda, you will notice, is exactly the same that proceeded the US unlawful invasion of Iraq. Such Wars of Aggression are unlawful and most accurately understood as treason against the United States, as the evidence clearly proves.
