“we got a good military and we can take down governments”
2007: 5 Star General Wesley Clark speaks truth to Democracy Now:
“memo from secretary of defense: how we are going to take out 7 countries in 5 years – starting with:
- and then finishing off Iran.”
The overarching goal: the US must stay the dominant force of the globe and sell the most oil.
What about all those values of “all men are created equal” and thus worth equal, which does not mean blind tolerance to crimes.
well… concerning our “values” “the West” just has fallen back to the very dark middle ages with Abu Garaib and Guantanamo-torture and all.
he even had a website called StopIranWar.com
Stopiranwar.com is a site devoted to creating awareness on a variety of topics related to Iran and the conflicts that surround this country. The fact that the middle east is a very volatile region is far from being a secret; therefore we have considered that our site has a very important role in terms of informing all those who want to know more about what is going on in this region. We have taken special interest in Iran, in its president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and in the Israel and Iran prolonged issues. Being this such a complex area, full of religious, ethnical and political differences, we have decided that the best approach to this very sensitive topic is by reporting simply the facts instead of expressing opinions on the different chapters that will be reviewed here. Our readers will have the chance to get all the right details to decide by themselves what to believe in terms of Israel and Iran, and the conflicts that for many experts have the region on the edge of an imminent war between these two nations. In recents years, Iran has begun to explore the nuclear power science, which has many political analysts very worried about Iran Nuclear efforts and the negative implications that could arise if they really developed a nuclear weapon program. Even though international organisms have made very clear statements in terms of sanctions and pressure to Iran, they have insisted in ignoring them and have moved on with their Iran nuclear ambitions. Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has become known for emitting extremely controversial public statements such as the one given at a university in the U.S where he guaranteed that Iran did not suffer from the western disease called homosexuality, for example, and the repeated challenges to the international community have added more instability to the region.
In terms of the information that you will be able to find, there will be historical facts, statistics and all kinds of news and interesting reports about the past, present and possible future conflicts. We will analyze both countries Israel and Iran, and provide a full panorama on what an Iran nuclear war would represent for the area and for the rest of the world. Besides all that, you will have the best chance to get to know Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the person the politician and overall controversial character. Also, we will take a glance at Iran nuclear program, what it means to the region, what the international community has said about it, sanctions, Israel’s take on the situation and of course our government’s point of view.
Iran, officially known as the Islamic republic of Iran got this name in 1935, and was referred to as Persia by the western world before that year. Iran is a big country (18th in the world) and its population exceed the 74 million mark. Its official religion is the Shia Islam and the official language is Persian. Amazingly, its early history can be traced back to the year 3200 BC when the first civilization emerged in that area. Iran is ruled by a theocratic constitution that was approved after the islamic revolution back in 1979. Then, in 1980 and trying to take advantage of a country weakened by the revolution, Iraq decided to attack Iran giving place to the Iran-Iraq war. This war ended 8 years later, with almost a million Iranians dead and massive deaths accused by chemical weapons used by the Iraqi forces. Later in 2005, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was elected president.
As far as Israel and Iran goes, their relationship has worsen and worsen since the Islamic revolution. In fact, commercial ties and even diplomatic relations are literally non existing. Iran’s government does not recognize Israel as a country and refers to it as a Zionist regime on occupied territories. The fact that Iran elected Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (hardline) in 2005, has contributed to increase the tension between both countries. In recent years a war between these two countries, seems more than imminent, and it has probably not taken place due to the international diplomatic efforts. Ties between terrorists and Iran have also been established, creating a lot of instability in the neighboring countries and the whole region. Due to the fact that Israel does have nuclear weapons and Iran is starting with their nuclear program, experts believe that a conflict between these two nations could end up drawing a great number of other countries into a large scale war.
It is clear to understand why it is so important to try to stop a possible Iran nuclear war from happening, and that is why we have decided to call our site Stopiranwar.com. Learn about the efforts being made to bring peace to this region, the efforts that have been made in the past and all the efforts that will be required in order to avoid a war that could trigger a possible WW III.
