Iran is being set up for “an unprovoked
03/31/06 "iranian.com" -- --
Professing to be the greater civilization, the intellect is
deliberately disassociated, sanity is interned so that greed may
proceed and allow the savagery of the greater to prey upon the
less. While mankind strives for nobility, there are some among
us who contemplate such base decisions that would threaten the
existence of another nation. Those same powers who would
refute that man is born under one law, and so they bound him by
another, targeting him with nuclear weapons.
Alarmed at such baseness, Philip Giarldi, A former CIA
officer, in an
August 1, 2005 issue of The American Conservative
warns that Dick Cheney has issued a request for using tactical
nuclear weapons against Iran. More troubling is that the use of
nuclear weapons is not conditional on Iran being involved in the
act of terrorism against the United States. Otherwise stated,
Iran is being set up for “an unprovoked nuclear attack”.
Ms. Rice who is rather smug about having earned herself a
major victory by getting everyone on board in referring Iran to
the United Nations Security Council, can also invite these same
nations to share this crime against humanity. Dr. Jorge
Hirsch, professor of physics at UC, San Diego, in his remarkable
video emphasizes the
consequences of a US nuclear attack on Iran. Each bomb
would deliver an incalculable number of corpses, the radiation
fallout, both immediate and residual, unparallel in magnitude to
the tragedy witnessed in Hiroshima and Nagasaki 60 years ago.
Subsequently, as each country races to acquire an A-bomb to
protect itself against an attack by a nuclear-armed aggressor,
we watch the dwindling of our civilization. It is said that
when a rich man declares war, the poor man dies. Today, with
the mockery of the IAEA and the UN Security Council, and above
all, with the United States issuance of nuclear tactical
standby, it is not just a single nation that is at risk of
demise, but man’s progress. The hideous claws of war have
gripped Western political leaders and motivated by greed, they
are committing cultural genocide/suicide. Apathy fuels this
In a democracy, leaders are transient – more or less. The
people will be held accountable for the darkest hours in
history. How tolerant can history be, and indeed should it be?
The people should demand that the voice of reason and justice
prevail. If Americans wish to be a law-abiding nation, then
they must protest the use of tactical nuclear weapons on a
non-nuclear armed NPT member signatory.
The use of these weapons will be defined as war crime under
the 1977 Additional Protocol I to the 1949 Geneva Conventions.
An indiscriminate attack in which the attacker does not take
measures to avoid hitting non-military objectives, that is,
civilians and civilian objects. There is no doubt that the
radiation from these nuclear weapons would kill civilians!
U.S. citizens must determine their future. Will Americans be
known as a nation that put out the lights of civilization by
enabling its elected officials to commit heinous crimes and kill
en masse in their name? Will we stand by and allow mushroom
clouds be the legacy that this administration will leave our
children, or will we realize that we should put a stop to
genocide and call on this administration to recall its
despicable policy of nuking innocence.
Although the US has not ratified the Additional Protocol I,
this provision is considered to be part of customary law and
therefore binding upon all parties to a conflict.
