A looming war against Iran?
February 4, 2007
Again the American Administration headed by the nefarious Bush and Cheney are insistently trying to convince the world that Iran is a danger, to which end they are concocting a strange cauldron of lies and false facts, at the time that they say their intention is not invading Iran.
It is clear that the attitude of China and Russia in the United Nations and in their trade relationships with Iran, has been substantial to make Bush say that they are not invading – despite the endless tirades Israeli politicians care to launch against the Iranian regime.
In my opinion the strategy here is simply egg Iran to act by provoking it with continuous assaults on Iranian interests in Iraq, by taking Iranians as hosts for the mere fact that they are Iranians and, consequently, according to Bush/Cheney’s mentality suspects of terrorism.
So far what I have seen is real terrorism is the Israel and US’s behaviour, something that can be clearly named State Terrorism. The invasion of Lebanon by Israel, the intervention of the Israeli military advisers in the Kurdish North of Iraq, the threats Israel is uttering against the Ayatollahs’ country are to my view nothing but provocation.
The American public opinion is growing against the bellicose attitudes of their President, but their President, assuming his usual dictatorial “poise”, openly defies his “subjects” and strides forward to his pre-conceived target : dominance of Iran by any means, be them direct attack or inner subversion of the country so as to change its regime. Bush appears more and more like the classical school yard bully.
In the meantime, the European Union lying on its laurels. Or toadying to the US.
I know what I am saying is not new, but I had to say it nevertheless.
A way to let out steam.
