Preventing another war

Preventing another war.

 

We often hear the argument that Iran’s regime is the worst in history and all Iranians should focus their energy and efforts to bring down this regime.  American media is also filled with rhetoric against Iran and additional terms used after 9/11 such as Islamo-Facists which is commonly used by those who know nothing about Iran or the region.

 

When Bush went to war with Iraq we all know by now that he cherry picked the intelligence reports and even relied on false intelligence and information.  His last option for Saddam was that he and his sons should leave the country or else.  He also used Saddam’s ruthless behavior as another basis for wanting to free Iraqis from his dictatorship and bring them democracy.  Something he was dead set against, nation building, during his 2000 presidential campaign, but that’s another subject all by itself.

 

We are now faced with yet another campaign to start another war with Iran.  The premise is always the same, diplomacy is our first option.  What diplomacy are we talking about?  Israeli war games in the Mediterranean or US war games in Persian Gulf? Just because we listen to drummed up diplomacy by the Bush administration doesn’t mean that everyone, including many in US Govt or media agree with it.

 

There are enough outlets in America to have understood what NIE report said, how we ended up in Iraq war and how dangerous it is to continue this path.  Others simply believe what they are being fed. Iran is a pariah and all roads end up in Rome.  Any discussion should keep this basis as a matter of fact.

 

Iran can’t be trusted but US and Israeli foreign policy can be trusted.  The only reason US is not at war with Iran is because of the massive failure in Iraq and not having enough boots to walk in Iran, otherwise Bush and Cheney’s dream of regime change their way in Iran would have had come to fruition.  The only reason we see diplomacy with Europeans, not Iranians, is because US lost all of its legitimacy in the world and the only reason you see Europeans not saying much is because they don’t want to embarrass US any more.

 

They want to exercise and war games as much as they want and as soon as Iran tests some missiles, they cry foul.  Are US or Israel expecting their bombs and missiles to just hit the nuclear targets and destroy everything without anyone saying anything?  Is that how it goes?! Same attitude was used in Lebanon and how much did it cost Israel? It is obvious that US military is no match for Iran.  It was obvious in Iraq.  But what did that get the US? What happened to all the promises made prior to the war? How much is oil now? How much did US spend in Iraq and how much more is it going to be spent?

 

Now another side of the story is about Iran’s violation of human rights and women’s rights and so on.  Well, that is a problem for Iran.  Women’s groups are fighting in Iran.  One of them won the Nobel peace prize and the fight goes on.  Did they ask for foreign military help?  Do they even know how to use foreign military help?  Let us fight our own battles.  There have been far worse regimes in the Iran and the world in the past, present and future.

 

When you compare Iran to fascism, you are being charitable to fascists.  People in Iran are living their lives and are the best allies of America in the region.  Better than Israel who wants to keep the war going in the region.  Who in America knew about Shiites and Sunnis?  It is time to face the realities and stop talking about war if you really want peace.

 

Iranians brought down one dictatorship and can deal with existing and future ones.  It just takes time but it is our right to do it ourselves.  Of course people can claim to do it for us, but they are just as mistaken thinking by turning Iran’s clock back by 30 years they can bring peace to the region.  Unless of course you are willing to kill millions of souls and if you’re willing to do that, then why are we wasting our time and talking about it?  No sense in talking about pre-emptive strike killing millions.  It is just as dead of an idea as giving legitimacy to racism and sexism.  We’re supposed to look to future not to past, ask for peace not war. If you want peace don’t start a war.

    Of Course, Iran working towards Nuclear weapons.

    Can you blame them for it? Two national governments on their borders have been overthrown. Israel has threatened them with air strikes…

    A Nuclear Weapon is a defensive weapon.

    Ever notice that North Korea and Pakistan can resist the United States,,, What do they have in common?
    They are both Nuclear Powers.

    It is simple bigotry that Iran is not being allowed to develop atomic weapons. Why shouldn’t an Islamic hereditary theocracy be allowed to build I.C.B.M.s?

    A nuclear middle-east will be a peaceful middle-east because of Mutually assured destruction. Mutually assured destruction kept the peace between the United States and the Soviet Union for decades.

    Atomic bombs are defensive weapons because they make victory impossible for anyone.

    Nuclear proliferation is going to happen sooner or later any way.
    Technology always spreads. Gunpowder was invented by the Chinese, but now everyone has it. Even the most isolated illiterate tribesman carrys an assualt rifle when he goes to war.

    In the future, every Mullah, Generalismo, and Warlord will have the ability to hurl nuclear weapons at one another. But, they will also be threatened with the same thing coming back at them. War shall become obsolete and peace shall prevail.

    Support Iran, Support Nuclear Proliferation, Support World Peace.

    Iran has stated nuclear weapons are not in their strategic interest and I believe it is not. They are not claiming nuclear weapons and IAEA confirms in their report and Iran is treated this way. Imagine what would happen if they claim they want these weapons!

    A nuclear war is not in anyone’s interest and everyone suffers immensly. So beating the drums of a war is a grave mistake.
