Blix: West approach on Iran 'hypocritical' Wed, 14 May 2008 17:53:20
Former UN weapons inspector Hans Blix hammers world powers for their 'hypocritical' approach to the Islamic Republic's nuclear issue.
In a recent interview with Channel Four News, Blix said the West's approach to Tehran's nuclear standoff is in marked contrast to that of North Korea.
"The North Koreans have been offered guarantees against any attacks from outside, the Iranians have not been offered this as far as we know, nor have they been offered diplomatic relations which the North Koreans have been," said the former IAEA chief.
"When you see talks now with the North Korean and the Iranian, they sit there and are told by the US and other, who retain all these weapons, you should not have all these nuclear weapons, that it is a danger for you, it is not a danger for us, it is for the safety of the world that is very hypocritical," Blix affirmed.
He explained that Washington's recently-adopted 'policy of containment' is failing to resolve international issues, stressing that 'there are many things that can be done on the Western side'.
The Swedish politician, who led the hunt for Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction, is widely considered as one of the vocal critics of Washington's invasion of Iraq in 2003.
"Today the reason for the Zionist regime's existence is questioned and this regime is on its way to annihilation."

-------------------- Wouldnt us hypocrites have to act this way to be considered on par with this lunatic? Blix is such a useful anti American idiot.
“Hello, I’m Hans Blix, and I have the IQ of toast.”
I thought he was dead.
I take great comfort in knowing that one day he will be.
He may have a point, we could just “eliminate” the Mullahs and ImaDinnerJacket.
Hey Hans, STFU, USMC Sempre Fi.
I thought the same thing, but alas, it was only in a movie.
“Ignorance is Blix”
Touche! Very, very good!
Blix and Mohamed El Baredi(sp?) make me sick.....talk about hypocrites, when there are problems in the world, they call on the U.S. to do something and when we do...they criticize us. Why didn’t Blix and El Baredi push the United Nations to stop Saddam from killing his own people? imho, these men are partly to blame for the Iraq war.....they instigated against Saddam and when it hit the fan, they changed their tune.
