THERE'S A RELEVANT WORD THAT THIS ARTICLE LEAVES OUT: ISLAM. THE WAPO STATES IT LIKE THIS: " [IRAN] ... shifted its operations from Dubai to farther east in Asia," - ASIA!? JUST ANY OL' ASIAN NATION!?
The Iranian businessman was looking for high-quality American electronics, but he had to act stealthily: The special parts he coveted were denied to Iranians, especially those seeking to make roadside bombs to kill U.S. troops in Iraq.With a few e-mails, the problem was solved. A friendly Malaysian importer would buy the parts from a company in Linden, N.J., and forward them to Iran.
... Despite multiple attempts by the Bush administration to halt illegal imports -- including sanctions against several Dubai-based Iranian front companies in 2006 -- the technology pipeline to Tehran is flowing at an even faster pace. In some cases, Iran simply opened new front companies and shifted its operations from Dubai to farther east in Asia, the officials said.
... Iran, a veteran of such schemes, appears in the documents to be increasingly adept at using front companies, which pose as schools or private laboratories conducting business through seemingly legitimate Web sites, the Justice Department records show. If discovered -- as happened with the Dubai-based Mayrow General Trading in 2006 -- the businesses frequently reopen under different names in other locations.
... By 2007, the Dubai-based operation had been almost entirely replaced by the Malaysian networks, the ISIS study found. Yet, while perhaps less conspicuous than before, the Dubai network probably continues to exist, though in a different form. Typically, the new front companies will not be discovered until long after crucial technology has left American shores aboard ships ultimately bound for Iran, Albright said.
THEY ARE DELIBERATELY LEAVING SOMETHING OUT:
- WHAT DO DUBAI, IRAN AND MALAYSIA HAVE IN COMMON? LANGUAGE? NOPE.
- IT'S ARABIC IN DUBAI, PERSIAN IN IRAN AND MALAY IN MALAYSIA.
- IS IT BAD RELATIONS WITH THE USA? NOPE.
- THERE'S ONLY ONE THING: ISLAM.
- AND THIS ARTICLE LEAVES THAT WORD OUT - IT'S NOT MENTIONED EVEN ONCE.
Islam is the official religion of Malaysia, and the Government actively promotes the spread of Islam in the country and its friendship with other Muslim countries.IF THE WAPO WAS INTELLECTUALLY HONEST THEN THE ARTICLE WOULD SAY "PAN-MUSLIM NETWORK ARMING IRAN DESPITE USA SANCTIONS." BECAUSE, IT'S THE GLOBAL JIHAD, STUPID!
BUT THE WAPO - LIKE ALL GOOD OL' LIBS - WANTS US TO BELIEVE THAT ISLAM IS "A RELIGION OF PEACE".
