Post The Persian Complex

Today I saw an article on NYT Opinion section. I though it might be interesting to all of us.

Quote:
IT is easy to label Iran's quest for nuclear energy a dangerous adventure with grave regional and international repercussions. It is also comforting to heap scorn on President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his earlier denial of the Holocaust and his odious call for the obliteration of the state of Israel. The rambling intransigence expressed in his recent letter to President Bush offers ample insight into this twisted mindset. Yet there is something deeper in Iran's story than the extremist utterances of a messianic president and the calculated maneuvering of the hard-line clerical leadership that stands behind him.

We tend to forget that Iran's insistence on its sovereign right to develop nuclear power is in effect a national pursuit for empowerment, a pursuit informed by at least two centuries of military aggression, domestic meddling, skullduggery and, not least, technological denial by the West. Every schoolchild in Iran knows about the C.I.A.-sponsored 1953 coup that toppled Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh. Even an Iranian with little interest in his or her past is conscious of how Iran throughout the 19th and 20th centuries served as a playground for the Great Game.

Thanks mate, for bringing the subject!

In my opinion the problem we face is not centered in the right (or not) of the Iranians developping nuclear power. No my friend, as a citizen I fear as much the nuclear power of Iran as I fear the nuclear power of the USA or any of the other countries that already have it. There are no good ones in this basket! They are all evil forces! And the USA leaders have proved in the past (Hiroshima and Nagasaki) that they have no moral authority for dictating any rules in this respect.

While it is still time it's important to create a public opinion wave in the sense of destroying all nuclear weapons no matter where they are!

Cheers!
