Some highlights from the Nonaligned Movement summit's final declaration.


TERRORISM:


Denounces the brutalization of peoples under foreign occupation as the gravest form of terrorism. Asks that terrorism not be associated with any religion, nationality or ethnic group and that it be recognized that the struggle of peoples under colonial or alien domination does not constitute terrorism.


MIDEAST CONFLICTS:


Strongly condemns "the relentless Israeli aggression launched against Lebanon." Promotes a revival of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Supports the Palestinian people's "inalienable right to self-determination in their independent and sovereign State of Palestine, with East Jerusalem as its capital."


NUCLEAR IRAN:


Defends the right of all countries to use atomic energy for peaceful purposes. Declares even the threat of attack against peaceful nuclear facilities to be "a great danger to human beings and the environment." Recognizes the International Atomic Energy Agency as the sole authority on nuclear verification. Encourages Iran to cooperate actively and fully with the IAEA to promote confidence and a peaceful resolution of the issue." Calls for a "nuclear-weapon-free zone" in the Middle East, including Israel.


UNITED NATIONS:


Calls for more equitable representation in the United Nations by increasing the size of the Security Council and curtailing or eliminating the veto power of the five permanent Security Council members. Suggests allowing council vetoes to be overruled by a two-thirds majority of the General Assembly.


DEMOCRACY:


Reiterates that democracy is a universal value based on the freely expressed will of people to determine their own political economic, social and cultural systems. Reaffirms that while all democracies share common features, there is no single model of democracy, that it does not belong to any country or region, and that sovereignty and the right to self-determination should be respected.

A good example of what happens when your alignment is out of adjustment. A good mechanic can fix them relatively cheaply. It would save them on tire wear and make handling a lot easier.

I hope someone in State and CIA are watching these developments. We are so quick to condescend to those countries in our backyard. Granted this is coming from Debka, so a shakerful of salt is necessary:

...and those aint BB guns they're pointing...

DEBKAfile is reporting that there were some meetings that not all member nations of the Non-Aligned Movement were privy to this past week in Cuba. Three nation's "leaders" in particular met behind closed doors to discuss their work in "maintaining clandestine ties with underground and terrorist organizations":

Iran’s Terror-cum-Intelligence Networks Thrown across Three Continents

DEBKAfile Exclusive Intelligence Report

September 20, 2006, 5:53 PM (GMT+02:00)

While the leaders of the Non-Aligned Movement nations were making speeches at the 14th conference of their movement in Havana in mid-September, three groups of intelligence experts were off in a well-guarded corner next door to talk about matters far from the conference’s main theme of how to develop backward economies and societies.

Iranian, Cuban and Venezuelan teams were putting their heads together on ways of translating their leaders' hostile rhetoric and slogans into effective war action against the United States.

DEBKAfile’s Exclusive intelligence and counter-terror sources disclose that the three teams were made up of intelligence officers and civilian officials on the staffs of the three rulers; their job is maintaining clandestine ties with underground and terrorist organizations.

After the NAM conference ended, the Iranian and Venezuelan teams moved their talks to Caracas where Ahmadinejad continued his talks with Chavez on Sept 17 and 18.

Interestingly, Iran’s Islamic revolutionary leaders have maintained warm ties of cooperation and mutual assistance with Castro’s Cuba since they came to power in Tehran in 1979. They admired his revolutionary zeal and consistent anti-US policies. Tehran also exploited Cuba’s economic straits to deepen its penetration of the country with a view to setting up an Iranian base in Cuba for its continental operations.​

"Iranian continental operations in the region." Any guess as to what those operations would be?

How about Iranian missiles in Caracas and La Habana? To wit:

DEBKAfile’s Iranian sources report that Ahmadinejad also talked persuasively to Chavez about making a show of deploying a few Iranian-made 2,000-km range Shahab-3 missiles – first in Venezuela then in Cuba – as a menace to the United States.

Chavez has not given Tehran his answer. But both he and Castro will think twice about granting this request, for fear of crossing one line too many for the Bush administration to swallow. However, Iranian ambitions to harm American know no limits.​

Of course, neither of these "leaders" has the cojones to make any decision while the decrepid bearded cadaver is still breathing:

They did agree that anything decided during the Iranian and Venezuelan presidents’ Caracas talks would be put before the Cuban ruler. They also decided that their intelligence teams would meet again during the UN General Assembly session in New York later this week. After discovering this plan, Washington refused the Iranian president’s “aides” – presented as journalists - entry visas to New York on Tuesday, Sept. 19.

The three-way talks have thus far yielded a solid decision for Iranian intelligence agents, some of them sabotage specialists, to be sent soon to Cuba and Venezuela. They will operate in the guise of road network and industrial development experts. Their real mission will be to conduct surveys on the practicability of using Cuba and Venezuela as bases for subversive activities against the United States and other parts of Latin America.
Perhaps now some in the Bush Administration will wake their asses up and realize that those little thorns in the side castro and chavez are more than just "a little prickly."
