New world order means new alignment and that's what we are witnessing. Yes, Russia's emergence along with China and partially with Latin America is positively creating new political centre with its own economic and bit military bond!
Whatever the outcome and whatever the EU's stand may be, this new 'world order' will weaken US!

  


Not necessarily that US will weaken. Whole world sick to the bone of war. Natural for balance of power to change, but when war is off the table, it could bring about global prosperity, fair trade benefiting all & economic stability.

“It is very important that in the Hague, when there was a vote on the decision on the role of the OPCW in implementing the program of chemical weapons destruction in Syria, a special clause was inserted urging all countries which have not yet done so to sign the convention,”

It should be compulsory that all countries sign the OPCW. That includes the US & Israel. US is a main player at making the laws, expecting other countries abide by them while US is quick to break very laws they made when it suits their interests. Proud of Iran & Pres Rouhani. US should get the Zionists out of their hair without delay.

All America has to do is drop about 30 daisy cutter bombs on Israel and a huge amount of the worlds problems will go up in welcome smoke.

I have to wonder what an impartial observer, say a visitor from another planet, would think of the goings on in the Middle East. Muslims killing Muslims, Arabs hating Jews and vice versa, Major world powers picking sides in small countries civil wars, alliances being made and governments being toppled, everyone placing the blame for the ongoing strife on someone else, and all of this over long dead plants and animals whose remains happen to be flammable. I would have to believe that visitor would have no choice but to report back that there is no intelligent life on this planet.

Israel is, by far, the most dangerous, powerful, and unstable nation in the Middle East. The world must press Netanyahu to surrender Israel's WMD, and to forcefully remove them if he refuses.

Thank you to everybody who is trying to make the world a nuclear and WMD free zone. Our grandchildren and theirs will thank you. Just cleaning up the weapons and waste we already have without creating additional suffering will be quite a task.

It's a start, now if only the US will keep their word....don't count on that one, they will find some excuse to botch things up you'll see.

I'ts really obvious that Obama should support Iran's disarmament plan; that would be the right thing for him to do. In the past he has bent over backwards to please Netanyahu. I hope that this time he will grow some balls and defy him.

 

Geoff King 30.09.2013 13:16

The way Netanyahu is looking at Obama it would seem he is not real happy with his puppet.

I think Israel might have religious reasons for not wanting peace deals. Because they rejected Jesus they are still waiting for the coming of the messiah and are getting impatient so are trying to create the conditions for his coming. As a Christian I want Israel to be safe but they need to stop been so Aggressive and only act in self defence.

Something is very fishy here. If Israel is US’s best friend and ally why needs Israel WMD that could wipe out hundreds major cities worldwide? This friendship in not based on mutual respect but sheer domination. RT viewers know who is dominating who. It is only possible because of the leverage of the monopoly to create money out of debt by some (as a consequence) very wealthy individuals controlling those Central Banks. The IRI is refusing to play this game out of respect to its believes and humanity. Therefore it must undergo sanctions and other forms of punishments.

Nuke israel, give peas a chance

  


I gave peas a chance, and I do not like how they taste.

Surely, Israel must see the benefits to its security if Iran and US come to an agreement not only on the nuclear issue but also on other Middle East contentious matters which appear to be on the agenda. Failing that perhaps Bibi and other antagonists should resort to sitting in buckets of ice to sooth the burning sensation given that this time it all appears to be "let's go forward from here" atmosphere amongst the adversaries.

first of all the Russia and Iran involvement in Syria current peace mission which averted the the US bombing ,devastation, saving the hundred thousands life in whole averting the inflaming the whole middle east is historic peace initiative infact Russia foriegn Minister is deseved of Nobel peace prize. secondly middle east disarment is iran another historic peaceful initiative should be implemented not only for sake of iran but for sake of israel too. but zionist arrogance and supercilious and psychopathic mentality never accept and meet the reality.

The Cold War between Russia and the US was based on mutual destruction. If you nuke us, we will nuke you. While very scary, it worked quite well. Since we will probably never see the end of nukes on the planet, perhaps the answer is to give them to all nations. Everyone might then be too scared to start a war. On the other hand.........

WMDs, like all weapons are deterrents against attack. When one nation has them and their enemy does not, that is an unfair advantage. Historically, Iran has not attacked another country for around 200 years. Israel cannot say the same. Therefore, for Israel to demand that Iran get rid of WMDs, while they retain their own is hypocritical. This also applies to nuclear weapons, which we know Israel has. What gives them the right to say Iran cannot have them as well? The very last country that should have any say about who can own nukes is the USA, as they are the only nation to have used them to kill 100s of thousands.
