Iran: The looming war – the continuation of Western idiocy

Iranians are proud citizens of the world, it is said that Iranians are wise, they also have a proud history going back to the start of human civilisation. Their culture is rich. They are among the biggest oil producers on Earth (6th.) The strait of Hormuz is important, lots of oil go through there.

The media are showing pictures of US warships far from home – near Iran. The USS Abraham Lincoln and the USS John C. Stennis are fearful machines with atomic reactors, 90 planes and about 6000 men each, and other classified equipment. They have been on duty in Irak, and are now ready for more missions. A war may be coming – and that would be pure idiocy.

There will be a presidential election in the US later this year, and candidates are taking their positions. All candidates are hot against Iran, so warmongering seems to be the way to become president of the US!

The West have sanctions against Iran, the latest being an oil import ban.

Iran had a prime minister Mossadegh that was engineered out of his position by US and Brit intelligence they say. The Shah was installed they say with help from same. Iran has tried to nationalize its own oil resources – surprise –  succeeded and now has about 80% of its national income from oil. Iranians have a notion – shared by many – that oil should not be burned. They want to find better uses for it.

They have had a nuclear programme since at least the 1950s trying to build nuclear power stations to produce electricity. Many nations have assisted in the building of these installations. This has clearly not been a success – it is difficult to find firm evidence of producing power stations – and now have a nuclear programme of research, uranium enrichment and say they are working to build nuclear power stations on an independent basis.

The Iranian view is that a development of nuclear weapons is not in the national interest of Iran, there would just be an escalation in the area. They will not have it – it just increases the security risk.

There is also the fact that Israel has nuclear weapons, and have not signed the NPT, along with India, Pakistan and North korea.

Recently 5 Iranian nuclear scientists were killed by “unknown attackers” without Western media saying much about that.

The IAEA have not found conclusively that Iran has a weapons programme, the information we are given through the media is coming from US sources – with a little help from Israel? – as assessments and allegations – no firm proof seems to have been found. This has been going on for a long time, and the pair of Cheney and Rumsfeld have been at it too.

Iran have many friends in the nuclear business – Argentine, France, Russia, lately Venezuela. Iran as well as many other nations – Brazil, Turkey, at least a dozen –  want to do their own nuclear programs including enriching their own uranium – without pushing and pressure from anybody – they insist on independence.

For Iran this is really about the right a nation has to do what it wants. The IAEA’s El-Baradei says that “many other nations are enriching uranium without the world making any fuss about it.”

This is clearly a complex mixture. The question of how China sees it could come up too. It should also be noted that China is a big buyer of Iranian oil.

It seems a conflict is consciously being built by the US and its allies, the real threats, the proven threats are coming from the West, piece by piece. Their ships are cruising around in a threatening manner waiting for orders to release their weapons. The US i going on regardless: “The push to boost the power of the the 30,000-pound “bunker-buster” bomb, known as the Massive Ordnance Penetrator MOP is part of stepped-up contingency planning for a possible strike against Iran’s nuclear program, say U.S. officials.” (WSJ). There is an obvious US agenda showing itself!

It is not in the interest of the world to let the US continue these kind of schemes. Moving their wars from place to place? Now it is Iran – what next? There are deep changes coming, the US has less than 5% of the world’s population, many other and bigger nations can not let this activity go on much longer.

The IAEA is not allowed to do its job as there obviously are higher agendas afoot, there are many others involved with their own many faceted agendas, a dangerous situation is being created, there is media spin, intelligence workers buzzing about. The West are clearly the provocateurs – alleging and assessing, but again being unable to show proof.

What kind of nation is Iran? About 67 million people – a little more than France – oil rich, famed culture going a long way back, relative freedom, although religious control can be harsh. They are wise – they would not do what the creators of the  allegations and assessments are putting out into the world. We should talk to each other – any way.

Are we wise?
