Cheering thy enemy
when have these people begun giving a damn about the welfare of
the Iranian people?
July 18, 2003
I read with interest Paul Klebnikov's
mullahs: Who Controls today's Iran? and I confess, if it had
been published by a magazine that gave a damn about Iran and Iranians,
I would not have a problem with
However, it was published by the "beloved" FORBES Magazine,
based in New York. And the FORBES financial establishment has long
been an integral part of the "Military-Industrial Complex" with
deep ultra-Zionist connections and interests--and by the way and
not surprisingly at all, it used to praise the Shah of Iran and
denigrate Dr. Mossadegh, among its other inhuman traits and pursuits,
such as the naked lust for money, regardless of consequence.
I see no need to remind anyone that the term "Military-Industrial
Complex" was first used by a former right-wing Republican
President of the U.S., who was also a General-and who, by
the way, signed the order for the CIA's overthrow of Dr. Mossadegh's
democratic government, as mentioned in the July 4th editorial article
in the Boston Globe newspaper, referenced below.
Hence, Mr. Klebnikov is writing for the right-wing (and Zionist)
influenced FORBES, the "sister" magazine of the Wall
Street Journal, so no wonder he demonizes a whole country and civilization
by saying: "A nuclear threat to the rest of the world, Iran
is robbing its own people of prosperity."
I wonder since when have these
people begun giving a damn about the welfare of the Iranian people?
I am sure ultra-traitor puppet-wannabes such as Reza Pahlavi,
Massoud Rajavi, Rob Sobhani, and their Naziesque neo-conservative
ultra-Zionist "friends," will
cheer wildly for such unbalanced articles.
Where is a mention in this article of the massive corruption
in Iran under the Shah? What about mentioning the massive economic
and political corruption in today's heartless America?
There is no doubt that in today's Iran we have a good deal of
economic and political corruption by people who CLAIM to know "God." I
have called this our "indigenous" corruption, in
the following recent e-mail post (July 4th) on the discussion listserv
of the small Internet-based organization, the Iranians for International
I really think it is important that we see the "darkness" radiating
from the "West" (and from the rabid expansionist Zionism--which
seems to be fully controlling the U.S. foreign policy, especially
in the Middle East), in all its varied HORRIBLE manifestations-the
darkness that is in fact destroying our fragile planet by its naked
selfishness and racist opportunistic aggression-and dropping
depleted uranium on innocent people is only one incredibly vicious
example of its criminality.
Given all this, if we Iranians have our own indigenous darkness
to contend with, it is better not to beg the Military Industrial
Complex to come and help us, because it is deeply deeply deeply
racist and selfish and DOES NOT CARE ONE BIT about Iran or Iranians.
Recent history has clearly shown that this vicious military-industrial
complex (with its branch office in Israel) DOES NOT GIVE A
SHIT about Iran or Iranians at all, whatsoever. Please forgive
for my language.
I don't like right-wing politics of any kind. But the more
the likes of Reza Pahlavi, Masud Rajavi, Rob Sobhani, M. Ledeen,
etc. advocate naked "depleted uranium" aggression against
Iran (and of course they constantly bullshit about liberation and
bringing "democracy" to fool ignorant people-ask
Iraqis for verification), because right wing neo-colonialists and
Zionists (and those under their control) have racist HATRED and
want to USE my beloved ancient land-they desire the total
subjugation of Iran at the hands of Bush, Sharon, etc. (i.e., at
the hands of the military-industrial-media complex), these days
I am being pushed politically toward even the right wing of the
Iranian government, despite my vomit-strength distaste for its
abusive self-defeating policies. At least these are indigenous
criminals-not imposed by "civilized" criminals from
Unlike some, I do not see the darkness of the "civilized" West
any less dark than I see our indigenous darkness. Look what they
did to Dr. Mossadegh--that inhuman policy has not changed a bit-as
we approach the 50th anniversary of that unforgivable crime against
our nation and the betrayal of the democratic development of
a large portion of the 3rd world.
I would like to bring this article to a close by simply
pasting my July 4th letter to the editor of the Boston Globe, in
to an editorial article it published
the same day.
In it I have expressed my opinion regarding Iran's "nuclear
issue, among other more historical observations:
Dear Boston Globe Editor,
I am an Iranian American cultural psychologist,
the founder of Tucson's on-going 24/7 peace vigil-now [as of July
4th] in its
106th day of non-stop operation, www.interfaithful.org
you can see, I have chosen to entitle my comments below as:
Wants to Forbid Democracy and Independence for Iran
In his July
4th Boston Globe editorial, A lesson from Iran on regime change,
H.D.S. Greenway quotes Stephen Kinzer, quite correctly,
that ''but for the
[1953 CIA] coup [which overthrew Dr. Mossadegh and brought back the dictatorial
Iran would probably have become a mature democracy" and "... much
of the terror [of the Americans that Iranians feel today] comes as a result
covert action 50 years ago."
Greenway goes on to say that: "Today... Rumsfeld
and the neo-conservatives around him talk of changing the present Iranian
then quotes Kinzer again that: ''There is nothing new in the world except
the history you
do not know.''
Much of what Mr. Greenway states is right on. Except that
I believe that the "Military
Industrial Complex," (which President General Eisenhower warned the
nation against in no uncertain terms (but now Bush and his brazen neo-conservative
company do not even feel the dishonest public relations need to even superficially
its complete dictatorial control of the U.S. government) has not changed
destructive and horribly selfish mind in these past 50 years.
The Ruling Complex
does not want Iran or any other country in the 3rd world (except Israel--superficially)
to be a "democracy," "mature" or not.
The Complex knows the history quite well. Its deliberate "kiss of death" support
of the Iranian students or of the reformers in Tehran is to kill the democracy
movement, fully purposefully.
Let us not be blindly naïve. The Complex's opposition
to Iran's nuclear development is not to prevent Iran from developing
nuclear arms, but
her from becoming energy independent (not hungry)--which would lead to
Iran becoming truly politically and economically independent--not
addicted to the
of non-renewable oil.
From the inhuman standpoint of neo-conservative colonialism,
this would be a bad lesson to learn for all other vulnerable 3rd
dignity and freedom--and also bad for the right-wing expansionist ultra-Zionist
interests in the Middle East. Therefore, the criminal racist policy
of 50 years ago (overthrow of Dr. Mossadegh's government) is knowingly being repeated
in a different form in today's Iran.
The most concrete manifestation
of this racist policy is the consistent undermining and enmity toward
President Khatami and the indigenous democracy reform movement
of Iran, from all right
wing corners, Washington, Tehran, and of course, Tel Aviv.
Shame on short-sighted hegemonic tribalistic selfishness, on
this very fragile and fast warming planet. Shame!
