The United States and its European allies – the old imperialists and the new
– tell their countries’ populations that Iran is isolated in the world,
and will have to get rid of its nuclear energy infrastructure
in order to be allowed back into what they call
“the community of nations.”
Among the power groupies that call themselves
journalists in the West,
Iran is routinely referred to as a “pariah” nation, lurking at the very edge of civilization and sanity.
The United States, by this reasoning,
is showing great wisdom and forbearance,
for not having already unleashed its carrier task forces,
Special Forces commandos,
and swarms of drones
on the crazed,
the U.S., in it infinite goodness,
enforces a strangling economic and oil embargo,
to make the Iranian nation scream.
The Iranians are lucky,
Americans and Europeans are told,
that the U.S. holds back its friends in Israel,
who are eager to give the ayatollah’s in Tehran a lesson in how to behave.
whatever happens at the end of this game
to force Iran to give up its lawful right to own and operate the full industrial cycle of nuclear power,
[ or its own debt-free based economic system ]
western audiences are assured that the “international community”
Iran is a global outcast.
CNN and the New York Times tell us so every day.
[ So do these people ]
