Will Brazilian President Lula Squash the Nuclear Beef Between Iran and the West?

According to Pepe Escobar, there’s a good chance:

“Iran has all but agreed that Brazil should be the mediator between Tehran and the United Nations – rather than the axis of the US, Britain and France inside the UN Security Council, plus Germany – to finally settle the Iranian nuclear dossier. According to the Fars news agency, after his visit early this week to New York, Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad, in a phone call with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, told him that Iran had agreed with the Brazilian proposal for a nuclear fuel swap deal for the Tehran research reactor, which produces medical isotopes for cancer treatment. The proposal will be discussed in detail when Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva visits Tehran by the end of next week.”

President’s Cairo Speech: A New Beginning

This is his greatest speech so far IMO, not only because of his words and delivery- but for what he’s trying to accomplish.

He’s the man to mend the torn relationship between Islam and the West.

Bibi plays Barrack

Once again great commentary by TRNN and Pepe Escobar to expose the poli-tricks taking place.

These days I cant watch the one-sided corporate media  in cahoots with special interests. A typical example is  CNN’s head correspondant Wolf Blitzer who used to be a lobbyist for AIPAC. (wtf!?) I think it’s safe to say our news is a bit one-sided… (sigh) I digress.
