Iran News: Condensed and Highlighted 027

(The better informed everybody becomes the greater the chance that war can be prevented and propaganda can not distort reality. With a couple of clicks you can do your part by simply forwarding this to others.)


(Immediately after 9-11 my days were spent reading everything I could find on the Internet so as to make sense of what had just happened. After two weeks of 17 hour days in front of my computer the conclusion I reached was that there existed a 50-50 chance that America would attack Iran. I made the decision to return to Iran because I knew what side I stood on, and it was not on the side of America. The items on today’s blog can be thought of as a larger and expanded reason of not wanting to be part of what America stands for.)

(And for the next several years after 9-11 everybody below the age of 30 that I met in Iran asked me the same question: “Why did you return?”)

(The answer to that question can be found in the excerpts below. And no, I do not regret coming back to Iran.)

(So today’s blog is not focused on Iran but instead on the larger context, which is Iran’s relationship with America. Not the America most of us conjure up – Hollywood, freedom, flags waving, Super Bowl, and The Land of Opportunity — but America the Empire.)

(And to understand the American Empire there are a dozen writers that are a must read: Noam Chomsky, Tom Engelhardt, Glenn Greenwald, Chris Hedges, Amy Goodman, Juan Cole, John Pilger, Paul Craig Roberts, Jim Lobe, Justin Raimondo, Lind Dinh, plus many more that I have neglected to mention.)

(If you have never heard of these writers then you are simply out of touch with reality, and a perfect candidate to be manipulated by Fox News and the rest of corporate controlled media.)

(Below are some excerpts from the latest writing of some of these writers. Maybe what you read will interest you to continue to read what they have to say.)
