Iran And "The International Community "
By Brkić Sulejman
Here we go again! Now it’s Iran. Bush, again mumbling something
about Iran’s being a threat to the world, the same crap as about
Iraq. But this time, the west European countries (the ”traditional”
allies) are at it, too.
Isn’t it strange how all these countries, the USA, Israel, England,
France, Germany…with all their weapons of mass destruction, feel so
easily threatened? Why shouldn’t Iran be a nuclear power? The U.S,
England, France, Israel, Russia, China, Japan (yes! Japan, too),
India and Pakistan are.
These idiots are the cause of nuclear proliferation. If they are so
concerned about the safety of the world they should lead by example
and dismantle their nuclear weapons.
When the U.S, Israel, England France and Germany talk about the
safety of the world being their main reason to object to Iran’s
possessing nuclear technology, what world are they talking about?
They are the only ones (as always) who feel threatened. I don’t hear
about Thailand, Bhutan, Bulgaria, Latvia, Vietnam, Zambia… feeling
threatened. I mean, really, what world is in question? The world
comprised of the U.S, England, Israel, France, Canada, Germany,
Italy, and Japan?
The world of GREED?
The O.E.C.D world? The world made up of the G7 the E.U the IMF,
World Bank, WTO, N.A.T.O, the UN Security Council, NAFTA, Wall
Street, OIL interests, cheap OIL. Is this the world we hear so much
about? Because, if this is the world the West is worried about, then
it is a world of SHAME that is in question, a world of deceit,
greed, wars, theft, colonialism, capitalism, imperialism... An
opulent white world born out of mainly colored peoples slave work,
sweat and blood and their natural resources.
If this is the world that is in danger then it might as well be done
We hear again words of shame, words like ”the UN Security Council”,
“UNSC resolutions”, “International community”… I thought all this
didn’t exist anymore. I thought the UN was finally dead, the coup de
grāce being the (another) illegal US-UK-led war against the Iraqi
people in order to rob them of their OIL. But let’s face it, the UN
was never very much alive. Actually, there never was a UN. All there
was was the(UN) Security Council, a band of criminals bent on
tearing the natural resources of the world at any cost.
Although I am far from being a fan of the ruling Mullahs in Teheran,
I still remember the Shah, Reza Pahlavi, a friend of the West, which
means “the International Community” and oppressor of the Iranian
people, a vicious dictator who was propped up and kept in power by
the West, robbed his people blind and made himself and the West even
richer and who eventually gave birth to the Mullahs. So, I urge Iran
not to put its fate into the hands of “the International Community”.
When you hear “International Community” on the news, what countries
pop up in your mind? Albania, Burkina Faso, Burundi…? Of course not!
The countries that pop up in our mind are usually the US and whoever
follows (pretty much the same faithful dogs : Israel, England,
France, Germany, Italy, Japan…) or G7, EU, NATO, W.B., IMF, WTO…
it’s always the same gangsters anyway.
This ”International Community” that is so worried about the safety
of the “world”, that claims the higher moral ground, a higher sense
of justice and is so vociferous in its proclamations of being the
defender of democratic values, human rights and protector of the
“civilized” world, this ”International Community” is the same one
that has betrayed millions of people around the real world in need
of human rights, democracy, justice…
Millions have been killed, tortured, oppressed, persecuted,
exploited…as a result of the criminal policies of our angelic
”International Community”, because what mattered and still matters
the most today is the economic interests of this ”International
Community” of SHAME!
Here are just a few names, a few peoples that were let down by our
”International Community”, the savior of the “world”: East Timor
(200 000 killed), El Salvador (75000 killed), Chile (between 10000
and 30000 killed), these murders (in Chile) started on September 11,
1973 with a coup against the democratically elected president
Salvador Allende, orchestrated by the U.S and welcome by “the
International Community” and brought to power the fascist general
Augusto Pinochet. Although this tragedy took place on a September
11, too, ”the International Community” seems to have a very
selective memory when it comes to remember the victims of its
Vietnam (between 2 and 3 million killed), Laos, Cambodia, The Kurds,
the Palestinians (robbed of their land and kept in huge prison camps
by the only ”democracy” in the middle East: Israel), Rwanda(close to
1 million) Zaire (the Congo), Sabra and Chatila (between 2 and 3
thousand Palestinians killed), San Su Kyi, Lumumba, Leila Zana,
Nelson Mandela, the Tibetans, 1.6million Iraqis, including 600 000
Iraqi children, who were killed by US-imposed, West European-backed
(read ”International Community”), wrapped in the UN flag economic
sanctions. For about 12 years, since the end of the Gulf War up to
the current illegal war again against Iraq, the Iraqi people kept
dying (600 000 children) like flies under the watchful eye of the
humanists that comprise the “ International Community”.
And many more millions of others.
Now, just a few more words about N.Mandela. Mandela, a black South
African man, had actually to fight in his own country for the
liberation of his people against a white minority racist regime! :
APARTHEID. He was labeled as a terrorist, arrested and thrown into
jail and left to rot there right up to 1990! Meanwhile, our
alrighteous ”International Community” kept doing very profitable
business with apartheid, that white minority racist regime that
lasted until 1994. That was 12 years ago! Bravo the ”International
When Mandela, at last, was to be released from prison in 1990, guess
who was opposed to his release? No less than the current vice
president of the United States of America: Dick Cheney (although,
I’m sure he was not the only one). Mandela himself in an interview
with the U.S. Magazine, Newsweek revealed this fact, published on
Wednesday, 11 September 2002. Excerpts of this interview can also be
found on BBC news world edition, Wednesday, 11 September 2002.
And let’s not forget Srebrenica, a place located where I come from :
Tito’s Yugoslavia. Now that area is called Bosnia and Herzegovina.
In July1995, between 7800 and8000 men and boys were executed,
slaughtered by the Serb military and paramilitary forces during the
1992 – 1995 war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in an area that was under
the protection of the “United Nations. Srebrenica was even declared
a “safe area” , a “haven”. This massacre took place in the heart of
Europe, it was the worst massacre since the end of World War2.
It occurred right under the noses of the leaders of the three
European countries that are these days so concerned about the safety
of the “world”, so much so that they are even considering supporting
a military action, undertaken by the U.S.A and its proxy Israel
against Iran to stop it from developing nuclear technology. The
three European countries I have in mind are: France, England and
Germany, all members of the UN ”Security Council” of which two are
permanent, France and England. These hypocrites want to protect the
“world” when they couldn’t even stop 7800 to 8000 men and boys from
being killed in a small town (located on their doorstep) like
Srebrenica. Maybe the people of Srebrenica should have applied for
EU membership before the massacre in order to get better protection.
When the ”International Community” threatens Iran to force it to
give up its nuclear program in order to make the world safer, I
wonder if its thoughts of safety include the Chechens, the
Palestinians, the Iraqis, the Sudanese in Darfur, the campesinos and
the Indios being massacred in Colombia by death squads backed by the
cheap – natural resources - hungry U.S. and its west European
vassals and Japan (read: ”International Community”) …or the 30 000
daily deaths caused by hunger due to economic policies of the
”International Community”…Will all these peoples and many other
oppressed ones feel safer once they find out that Iran has agreed to
get rid of its nuclear technology? Who or What will really be safer?
The flow of cheap OIL to the West and Japan (the ”International
In light of this record of atrocities approved of by ”the
International Community”, Iran should really speed up the
development of its nuclear technology in order to defend itself
against these vultures.
Iran shouldn’t either count too much on the anti-war “movements” in
the West or here in Japan. I mean, take a look at Iraq. Close to 200
000 Iraqis killed for OIL so far! You see any outrage? But two bombs
go off in London or two buildings go down in New York with some
collateral damage, then and only then there is outrage! ”The
International Community” goes into uproar, it is the end of the
(white) world (of privilege), (white) civilization is in danger,
“democracy” and “peace” are under fire. Yeah, sure, the anti – war
“movements” in the West and here in Japan, we’ll do our usual thing,
just like with Iraq, get in the streets, parade, shout slogans “No
war! Peace now! Don’t attack Iran!”, we’ll walk, dance, sing
“Blowing in the wind”, carry banners (some with very “aggressive”
messages). It will be very colorful, joyful… hell, it might even be
better than Le Cirque du Soleil, and all of these “protests” will of
course be non-violent! Peaceful, superpeaceful, ultra-peaceful! And
then, if our governments despite our strongest objections don’t back
off and submit to our will and attack Iran all the same, well, we’ll
just have to… go home, I guess, and wait for the next war, as usual.
Therefore Iran should really hurry and develop whatever it needs to
protect itself from us, I mean, ”the International Community”.
