Little bit of history incase you all have forgotten the reasons..
Since the 1950’s US has been derailing Iran’s political progress.
US overthrew a democratically elected government of Iran. There isn't a bigger crime than interfering in a sovereign nation’s internal affairs for
personal gain. That is the text book definition of terrorism.
Since then, US have conducted series of hostile acts by US toward Iran. Come 1979 revolution, the US allowed the late king to enter US for medical
treatment. That decision conjured up images the horrific crimes committed in the 50’s by US in the minds of certain young revolutionaries. To
prevent another derailment, they seized the US embassy. We know what happened next.
The average American who didn't know Iran existed before that moment. I know because I was in US at the time. Naturally people ate up the narrative
they were fed.
There has never been an act of terror committed by an Iranian against America.
Sadly the same cannot be said for US.They supported and provided
chemical weapons to Iraq during the eight year imposed war on Iran.
On July 3rd 1988, a passenger plane shut down intentionally by Us Navy in cold blood. The captain of the warship was awarded with a medal of
“bravery” by the Teflon President Ronald Regan. As of late there hasn't been an apology.Evidently, it is brave to shoot down an unarmed passenger
plane in Iran’s own territorial water.
Take notes of these brave
acts and then let me know who is the hostile forces here.
And many more……
These small samples of the recent history and that is what made the revolution popular with the masses was its narrative of taking a stand against the
Mr. Mehran Janghorbani once wrote..
There are many practical reasons and one very, very important cultural reason. the US has reneged on its promises several times and has shown
itself to be fickle and wayward with its commitments. Perhaps the most striking moment was actually how they behaved with the deposed Shah, a long
time ally and bosom buddy. When he was no longer in power and became a liability they discarded him like a spent tissue.
Later on, Reagan made lots of promises to us none of which he honored after we played our part. For us, a promise is sacrosanct, that is why we can
never stop aiding Assad even if he is doomed, that is why we need to support Hezbollah and the Palestinians even if it goes against our national
interests. You may find this to be medieval and naive but for us, a man's word is his worth that is why our supreme leader and our politicians are
very careful in what they say, once they say something, honor dictates that they abide by it. In the US however, politicians' mouths are way ahead of
their brains and they chatter away like there is no tomorrow, obviously, the next day they change their minds to suit their current
It is actually a wonder how anyone at all trusts the Americans.
