It escapes my comprehension to identify the juridical and moral grounds upon which big caliber leaders as Obama, Hollande and Cameron - though comfortably relaxed over gigantic arsenals of tactic and strategic atomic weapons – could allow themselves to deny Iran its right to develop its own Civilian-Use Nuclear Programmes; claiming that from here onwards, though only in theory, it can develop atomic weaponry (to go from the 20%uranium enrichment needed for civilian applications to the 90% minimum enrichment required for the Atomic decades would pass).
It is said that Iran makes part of the Axis of Evil. And why is that? The Khomeini’s Iran has never aggressed anyone, if ever it has been aggressed by Saddam’s Iraq, encouraged and backed by western states as long as he served their interests, expropriating Teheran from a victory legitimately conquered in the battle field.
It is still being said that Iran foments international terrorism. There is not a single solid proof. While it is a proven certainty that Mossad did assassinate four Iranian scientists working for the Nuclear programmes (imagine what would’ve happened if the roles were inverted).
And it is said that Iran is a Theocracy. So what? Not all states must become a copy of western democracies. In any case, if a Theocracy isn’t a democracy, it is neither the single man government; it is a well articulated regime that cannot be put on the same level with dictatorships of the various Somozas or Pinochets and Saddam that the west, Americans on top, have shamefully supported and even imposed (right Mr. Kissinger?).
Differently from Israel, Iran has signed the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty; Accepted the AEIA inspections imposed by the International Community and, through the ongoing negotiations, is proving willing to submit under more intrusive and capillary inspections; just to preserve its elementary and sacrosanct right to develop its own Civil Use Nuclear Energy.
What could be required more? Maybe if we stop considering ourselves the absolute ‘GOOD’; then the ‘EVIL’ would be less aggressive and distrustful to our regard.
These lines are translated from the article of Massimo FINI, on today’s ‘Il Fatto Quotidiano’, entitled: “Are we sure of being superior than IRAN?”!!
Think about it every time you unconsciously repeat Big Brother’s motto: “Iran is Evil”.Pass On The Word.
