Usually reliable and impeccable sources have informed me, that the mathematical formula above defines the New World Order and the logic of current geopolitics. In sum and effect, one sexy Iranian life, is worthier, than, the lives of 1400 persons in Palestine.
This usually impeccable sources informed me, that Israel Defense Forces or IDF conducted a brutal military action, of the scotched-earth variety, and as a consequence, 1400 persons, were killed unsung in Palestine. These Palestine persons comprised or included children, grandmothers and the infirm. This is not ancient history. These brutalities were inflicted on Palestine in January 2009!
Then, spring-showers came and May-flowers followed, June 2009 arrived as a natural cause of events. And on June 12, 2009, Iran engaged in a democratic experiment, albeit, imperfect by all accounts. There were suspicions and complaints against a perceived heavy-hand of the Iranian government of the government of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, president of Iran, whose finesse, politesse and diplomatic skills are arguably indistinct.
As it turns out, this Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have been accused of not playing by the fleeting and ever shifting rules of the geopolitical nuclear weapons club. A club to which membership is determined solely your ability to engage in strategic ambiguities, so long as, your sanguine deceit is underwritten by powerful friends. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is not photogenic, does not have friends or clout. It is even doubtful whether he has Arab and Persian family, other than those who are too willing to betray him and collaborate with outsiders who are keen at frustrating his nuclear club membership aspirations. Who decides nuclear which nation may acquire and possess nuclear capability? What are criterion such determinations?
So far at least, to be a nuclear power, all you need is the audacity. Then fortify such audacity with a few chess moves. And you are in. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has audacity perhaps. But he has no underwriter friends. Saddam Hussein’s attempts at strategic ambiguity caused him his throne, and then his life and the ruination of Iraq. Saddam did not have nuclear weapons or chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction, but Saddam’s imitation of strategic ambiguity, opened his unguarded flank and he was walloped by those who had other plans for Iraq and the rest is, unfolding history. The Straits of Hormuz and the entire Gulf of Persia will never be the same.
Similarly, Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has enemies in high places. These enemies pounced on the indisputably flawed Iranian elections on June 12, 2009. And all hell broke lose and it was all bedlam thereafter. There were what appeared to be choreographed, orchestrated and synchronized bashing of the government of Iran and the men at its pinnacle, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in particular. The government and the press in the Western world were on the same page and coordinating efforts to unhinge the government of Iran in regime change engineered by some unseen hands from outside Iran. Agents of the United States government took the extraordinary steps of demanding that Twitter.com postpone scheduled technical maintenance. All, order to allow, Iranian demonstrators, agitators, and their handlers, outside Iran, to coordinate unsavory activities against the legitimate government of Iran.
Is it just me? I think that it is not farfetched to deduct from all these, the role played thus far, by Iran’s nuclear power ambitions. Iran’s continues to insist that she is pursuing nuclear, for civilian energy or peaceful purposes only. But after the June 12th elections, the pursuit of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Iran intensified. Declared and otherwise known enemies of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, under the guise of wishing Iranian good elections, and governance, went full blast against Iran. Western governments and Western press, in unison, uniformly attacked Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Iran, without reserve.
It will be recalled, the Western press it was, which never questioned or take to task, the warmongering war drums of George W. Bush, former president of the United States, as he sought to invade and occupy Iraq. It will be recalled that Western press were willingly, and even eagerly embedded, trading away their press freedom and independence. And after June 12 2009, Westerners approvingly, and suddenly, named and extolled a theocrat Mir-Hossein Mousavi, a clear renegade retrogressive conservative retrograde; a reformer! Suddenly! These obvious affront and shenanigans of endorsements by the Western governments and press, pretended to ignore Mir-Hossein Mousavi’s record as part of the ruling conservative clubhouse member in Tehran! Again, telling that country who their leader should be. or what leader among them is palatable tolerable to the West’s desires for Iran?
While the protests in Iran were on, coming across as coordinated and engineered by Iranians, with apparent help from outsiders, or handlers, including employees of British Diplomatic outpost in Teheran. The government of Iran, presided over by no other than a torn on the flesh of the West, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, cracked down on protesters and sundry agitators. There were reports that many Iranian citizens were injured or maimed or even killed. Molotov cocktails were and blazing fires featured prominently in the post election news reports.
In this admixture outrage and crackdown, there were reported deaths of about 69 Iranian civilians. An unknown person killed Neda Soltani, in circumstances that were not sufficiently clear. Meanwhile, so many protest posters borne by Iranians were prefabricated in English! I guess and suppose that the governing Ayatollahs respond more rapidly when beseeched in English? Why not in Farsi? Persian Languages are too sonorous and lame? Or is it that the posters were produced in an English speaking diplomatic outpost, as have been alleged by Iran, and then customized for CNN worldwide viewing audience for effect?
But, Western governments and western press have insisted all along, that Neda Soltani was killed by Iranian agents or security forces. Even though the jury was out, regarding specificities surrounding the murder of Neda and some other Iranians who died in post election rancor, stampede and violence.
Democracy and freedom, liberty and the rule law for all, are excellently wonderful concepts, there are simply nothing better. But this should be seen as quite distinct, from the idea of force-feeding democracy to peoples in democracy starved nations worldwide. Force-feeding of anything, no matter how ordinarily wonderful creates resistance, by the victim of force-feeding. Particularities and peculiarities of conditions and multiple variables on the grounds, in many nations dictate the quality of democratic ideals and other fine ideals which can be established or foisted easily or with phased efforts. We cannot presume to know what is good for every nation on earth.
