NIAC wants you to buy "Peace" for (the low price of) Freedom

Balatarin

Today on planet NIAC, peace, or "Peace" is on sale. All you have to do to buy peace is sell your freedom. Which is reasonable to NIAC. I mean it's not like you are using your freedom for anything anyway, and mostly it just sits in the corner of your 3rd car garage gathering dust, and moss. And mold. Next to the treadmill you never use.

 

Today's latest offer from NIAC is a simple one. Sign their pre-written petition which largely states; "I support a peaceful solution with Iran, I do not want another war." Which is grammatically incorrect, since it implies that Iranians wanted a previous war with Iran, but that this time, we don't want this additional war with Iran.

 

I know this is semantic on my part, possibly pedantic too. But if we intend to speak and write English petitions, I would hope we would want to do it correctly. For example you don't see me writing incorrect Farsi (a lot). Certainly I don't use Farsi for the real important stuff. Like on the internet. That and apparently Farsi is largely wasted on most Iranians.

 

But punctuation, clarity, and national linguistic pride asion the one hand, NIAC wants you to put aside everything else you might want, and once again, do as you are told, as they see fit, and now just shut up and listen and blindly support the continued damnably ignorant  US-Iran negotiations and their singular true purpose which is to use 'Diplomacy" to help Iran and the US to find a way to live together, make some much needed money for the various backroom players and key negotiators on both sides, AND allow Iran to continue developing nuclear material. Whose ONLY purpose is to build a bomb.

 

I know, I know, those of you who always do, will now argue that Iran has never been proven to be seeking a bomb and the usual apologizes that follows the most cowardly gullible portion of our fast fading society. You would still like to give this Iran (of all Irans) the benefit of your doubt. And require people like me to do the same. I wish I could. Clearly, unlike me, you haven't seen enough Iranian on Iranian rape and murder and crime, apparently to convince you yet. No problem, take all the time you need.

 

Although can you hurry it up? We are running out of it.

 

Additionally, if Iran was really concerned about "Energy", it would buy about 1500 of GE's top of the line Generators and could even sell the electricity to the Gulf states as much needed hard currency non-oil derived revenue. None of the reactors built so far have any serious power-up capacity, compared to the 700 years of proven natural gas reserves that Iran has to fire up GE generators. By merely turning on a very safe tap.

 

Did I mention GE enough? Because that is a lot of carrots with almost no stick. Certainly a lot of lettuce.

 

Since the plans Iran is using to develop nuclear "power" are the same outdated plans the nuke-seeking Shah had drawn up, and was about to implement in order to get in on the Cold War action he was watching play out between the US and the USSR, directly in his own back yard, I will now call "LIAR!!!" on Iran's false bearded claims otherwise today.

 

But back to NIAC and why they confound me, or think any of us are this stupid, gullible and willing to sell off our aspirations of freedom, just to help this Iranian government gain strength and continue to curse us, instead of collapse and allow us to get on with our true destiny. 

 

That NIAC does not see how making the Iranian government stronger, actually harms us.

 

I know that the argument NIAC makes is a reasonable one. But to me at least, it is a naive one. But it could very well work in theory. Just not practically. The idea is this; by getting the US and Iran to discuss "differences", war with Iran is averted (not that the US can afford the PTSD and other mental health care costs of another war for decades to come, possibly forever), and that once war with Iran is off the table, "other things" can be discussed. I'm guessing NIAC means "reform". because NIAC subtly hints at it every 4th or 5th paragraph. Although NIAC is careful to NEVER mention the one and only thing ALL Iranians (hyphenated and over caffeinated outside of Iran, and comatose and heavily sedated inside Iran) actually want. Which is freedom and a secular somewhat democratic government instead of old folks telling young folks to hate Jews, what to wear, and not to dance in public (so much).

 

NIAC never mentions or admits or lifts the slightest manicured fingernail to fight for that which we don't have. Yet they continue to solicit funds, and argue the most embarrassingly moronic positions one can imagine. Stunningly insulting words that come out of unequally oppressed NIAC mouth like this, are simply unacceptable.

 

That NIAC thinks that you can calm a deadly hornet's nest by offering them a bit more honey.

 

You can't. When you capitulate with this evil Iranian government, you make them stronger. More convinced they are right and YOU have come around to their way of thinking. The suggestion that somehow by the US caving in now, and reducing the sanctions, that Iran respects the US this time is retardedly ludicrous. An insult to ludicrously retarded people in fact. And proven so, by the Tehran boys choir singing an emotional arrangement of "Marg Bar Amrika", a-capella, in public. Clearly meant to re-affirm the national mantra of hatred, on the day of the equally staged revolution celebrations. This very week!

 

So, go ahead, sign NIAC's petition, and continue to delude yourself that it is helping things calm down. But know this, you are signing it with the blood of your own, and you are signing away your soul to boot. All so that the illegitimate and powerful in Iran can continue to spew their hatred in your capitulating name, and argue the most ridiculous proposition, that somehow God now wants Iran to hate everyone into submitting to their will and the new world order they think is written in the romantic poetry of the Quran. As big a failure as that has been.

 

As these negotiations are sadly proving. It's working.

 

Our position as free-Iranians outside of Iran, or free-thinking Iranians inside Iran should be that we will not accept any details, minor items, trade terms, IAEA inspections, unverifiable % of enrichment limits, or any other negotiations that do not first define Iran as an illegitimately ridiculous state, and acknowledge the criminal oppression of Iranians, from being free.

 

On the side of Uncle Sam who has been painted as a less than honorable, inappropriate touching uncle in this, anything less than acknowledge in the right to Iranian freedom now, is another point in favor of continued brutal dictatorship, and a complete abdication of the US' claim as "...the defender of freedom and liberty in the world."

 

Since certainly this all sounds ridiculous and idealistic to you readers (and I'm sure NIAC is snickering too), juts look at how far we are from our own rectifiable truth. That we would call a simple exclamation and aspiration to be free and liberated, ridiculous and idealistic.

 

Voy!

amirparvizforsecularmonarchy I Love Waterfalls and Find One of the most humorous things in the world; is the notion that Americans are a greater force for good & more civilized than Nazi's, Mullahs and Communists.

Supporters of the IRI are crying foul. However this is ridiculous for a people that mostly hate them.

Reality due to the poor management of Iran , the people have no trust of the mullah chadori regime of rape and torture to death. A Regime that can kills an innocent Neda has no credibility left, especially when she opposed them and it goes on to blame her death on israeli's. What a desperate bunch of liars and thieves we have that kills an innocent doctor like http://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/aug/25/iran-doctor-murder-kahrizak-rapes

or another innocent doctor http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/tehranbureau/2009/11/kahrizak-doctor-dies-first-lady-appears-in-public-in-rome.html who can trust a regime that came to power by exploiting western manufactured social turmoil and based on lies while burning innocent Iranian people alive in cinema rex and blaming the innocent Iranian Monarchy for their heinous acts?


The Iranian People are being tortured to Death `nd those who want to normalize relations with them are acting grossly inhumane and with out any care for freedom, human rights, decency, democracy, Peace, Justice or Progress. So long as Western Democratic Systems are not exactly acting on principal or educating their own people on their crimes and lies. The Iranian People can not trust the west and their supposed support for human rights and democracy, being the Primary cause for bringing the mullahs, based on planning and organization and preventing anyone from acting on their removal. Democratic systems are not trustworthy, so why would we want a system that can not abide by law for ourselves? We are scared of having a dictator? How stupid are we, when we can have a king that abides by the law and therefore can never be a dictator or abuse absolute power. It is the Corporate backed by Military Dictatorship and autocratic Despotism and Super corruption of the west we need to be concerned with. People power in reality does not exist there as they pretend, it is only choices based on manipulation and deceit and those with the money always win in this system of torture and indefinite detention.

Apparently this hits a nerve with those traitors who oppose the late shah and those who are backing the IRI.

A masterpiece. Telling the truth as it is. I understand why NIAC and IR supporters should be very upset with the above article.

Actually between Julian Assange and Snowdon, I don't think anyone honest believes the USA is democracy by the people, for the people of the people, nor do the people have access to power regardless of their votes. US' claim as the defender of freedom and liberty in the world was a joke used during the cold war when it may have had some relevance. In reality is the USA is the most tyrannical and corrupt system of government unleashing wars yet seeking credit for democracy and the nobel peace prize at home. It's just beautiful in a way, to see where supporters of democratic systems are standing, having been exposed for what they are good for and how unlawful, immoral, corrupted and criminal democratic systems are.

ain't that the truth, the usa used human rights and democracy deceitfully to trick and poison the country to its own demise with out a great and noble king, now the emperor has no clothes and everyone can see he wants extremism not freedom and liberty, maybe not these extremists but he has others in line. Freedom and Liberty do not go with "democratic systems" which have stolen more freedom and thwarted more human progress than any system of government.

ey Voy, well said, NIAC and UK, France, Germany, Russia, China and now the USA want to make nice with the blood thirtsy brutal IRI and sell all Iranians for less than nothing. This is what you get for Out of Total Stupidity opposing to one of the most peace loving Iran loving Progress loving, Modernization loving, Development loving and Human Rights Improver and calling his service to Iranians being a Nowkar to the west which had to pay for its alliance to Iran through free access to the most advanced country in the world, from its education to its defense technology. Still some lie about a great king and misrepresenting him as a dictator, corrupt thief, claiming his savak tortured, he was installed by the USA and not the more honest and realistic reality the Iranian military, land owners and the church. If the CIA had such capabilities in 1953 then why the wars against syria, iraq and libya, what you can't oppose a leader there and have him peacefully replaced and you have to use a military, but in Iran you had this magical pill that gave you unique powers? CIA couldn't do a damn thing with out the shahs team not then and not today. At least they know the truth before they intentionally pay for many pHds, to misrepresent the history of 1953 and writing books stating the opposite to the reality.

...... And then the CIA which installed the Shah, somehow lost this capability for now and forever more, so thats bring up the key question...... how stupid are so many Iranians? The CIA involvement was Irrelevant in terms of capabilities within Iran, the team responsible for operation ajax tudeh, fled the country after their plans fell through, it was the following 2 weeks where the shahs team where were the most powerful and united with in Iran changed the mossadegh intrigue to fail and favor Iran. US participation was not in terms of money or planning, its value was it gave Iran political cover against the uk and russia to no longer have them interfere within Iran or risk war with the USA. It was wise to let the CIA and the USA be a partner of Irans furture by the shah in his own teams efforts secure his throne. It meant that Iran under the shahs team could keep the UK and Russia honest in favor of winning over Iranian favor in the fruitful years to come for Iran.

As for Iranians Clearly a people with so little wisdom can not be ready to participate in a democracy, it is pure madness to suggest it is even beneficial despite its immense losses in sovereignty and independence. Iran has many other hurdles to climb over in terms of freedom and justice, before it can develop the wisdom of its people enough to run a democracy, peacefully and truthfully.

choghok Your enemie's enemy is necessarily not a friend.

Once again the rhetoric pro Israeli lobby is throwing in the air, Iran has oil and gas why use nuclear energy. The question can be put also to USA, russia, britain and many others? The answer from Iran is simple because the want to sell their oil and gas, it is their only hard currency. Also they want to advance in technology.

And also when has NIAC has asked for selling democracy? Is being for politics against democracy, then it would automatically mean that being pro war means democracy. So war equals democracy in your book. Afghanistan should by now be the most democratic country, or Iraq.

Iran doesn't want to advance nuclear technology, if they did they wouldn't buy it from the Russians.

Iran wants a nuke. Or at minimum the respect that claiming to have one seems to get you these days.

Nothing more. The proof is how fast the US has come calling once Iran claimed to pass the enrichment threshold that makes everyone so nervous.

I doubt that Iran wants anymore than to use this threat to get respect, and to be the perennial thorn in the side of the US and Israel. After all that is 2 of the 3 foundation principles or pillars of the Islamic Republic.

I never said NIAC asks you to sell democracy. I am saying that NIAC is asking you to accept and fund their efforts to undermine what should be our only quest, the acquisition of freedom and Democracy.

By asking you to forget all of that for now, and accept diplomacy that benefits the US (not the Iranian people) and this Iranian thug government (Again, not the IRanian people) NIAC is asking you to pay them fundraising dollars, while you put aside what should be our ONLY aspiration.

NIAC asks you to do this. and for the most part "you" (people who support NIAC) do.

That's my problem with all of this "Shut up and support diplomacy:" edict.

screwing for virginity doesn't work, but some say imposing dictatorship using war or coup like the IRI for democracy is just the greatest idea.

Amou Varg, somehow I don't think he is supporting the petition to go and provide a link to it. http://www.niacouncil.org/site/News2?page=NewsArticle&id=10249 here is info on the aim to normalize with Iran and making the USA complicit in keeping and defending the IRI and its agreement with them.

they want the IRI stronger to keep them against the will of the people and their human rights. The west in practice loves extremism and its associated regression for Iran.
