No, not all of you, but some of you appearantly are...
America freed Iraq from a bunch of murderers and rapists and you have the nerve to call us those names? You quote from Al Jazeera and expect us
to beleave you??
Yes, America freed Iraq from the criminal rule of Saddam Hussein whom America had supported and armed to the teeth for many years, during which
America very well knew about his autrocities... But America did not free Iraq for the sake of the Iraqi people being free. America freed Iraq for
several entirely selfish reasons. Iraq's and Afghanistan's invasion was just part of a major plan of controlling the entire Middle East, Caucasus
and Central Asia -- The richest region in the entire world when it comes to natural resources. Iran was always considered the big prize, but it was
also always considered the most trickiest of all. So the implementation of the plan has just begun. We haven't seen even half of it all yet!
Hairiri's assassination was also part of this plan and so was the assassination of Ahmed Shah Massoud, the legendary pro-Iranian leader of the
Northern Alliance who was assassinated two days before 9/11. But it's not only about money, it's also about imperialist ambitions - about
showing the world that the Soviet Union is gone now, and that no country can stop the U.S. anymore - the U.S. can do whatever it please and will do
just that without any regards to what the rest of the world thinks or says! And it's also about religion. Since the U.S. wants to control this
vast area, it also sees the necessity of being able to maintain their control in the long term.
If you travel outside of the U.S., you will find that in most countries of the world it is not American troops that have invaded, but rather American
"culture". I just picked up the TV guide for the small European country where I currently live, and counted that some 90% of all the programs
showing this week on the different channels that I have originate in the U.S.! 90%!! And then there are all the locally produced shows that are
copied from the original American ones, like all those boring reality shows of all sorts. If you head for the movies you will find the same results.
Music for the youth - such as hiphop, rap and rock, is predominantly produced in the U.S. Most of today's teenage fashion is also inspired by the
American homeboy culture of the ghettos. MTV can be seen virtually all over the world today, and FOX TV is part of my basic cable package where I
live. American culture and values are also spread through news networks such as CNN, NBC, and MSNBC which can viewed via either cable or satellite TV
in many parts of the world. Now, as long as there is nothing harmful involved, I do not oppose the export and import of culture as such. And in
this case I think there are both harmful and not harmful comonents involved. But culture can also be used to extend influence and control over other
societies. And while the exchange of culture does not need to involve direct governmental involvement, it can often serve the political and
financial interests of the exporting country. And this is indeed the case for the U.S. Imagine how all the American films and series that we see
here can in the long run change our values and norms, and even traditions. As a result we can see that Halloween and valentine's day, which have
never in the past been celebrated here, now are celebrated in a rather major way.
Now, Iran has also started in a major way to get involved in the export of culture, but in a different way than the U.S. and with an entirely
different cultural menu. Iran's menu largely consists of Radio and TV broadcasts in almost all the languages you can imagine - Iran has also
launched a 24 hrs very sophisticated and professional news channel in Arabic, catering to the Arab world, the so called "Al-Alam" news channel.
And it is reported that most Iraqis rely on Al-Alam for their news now. Iran also produces films, movies and documentaries that have recieved award
after award at numerous international film festivals around the world and are being showed on TV in many countries including the U.S. Iran is one of
the world's largest publishers of all kinds of newspapers, magazines, and books, that are printed in many languages and sold not only in the Muslim
world, but also beyond. Art exhibitions of both traditional and contemporary art, the performing arts of various kinds, scientific symposiums,
lectures and intellectual dialogues are all also part of Iran's increasing cultural activities inside and outside of its borders.
Now, let's go back to what I said about the real intentions of the U.S. in the Middle East, Caucasus and Central Asia, and that the big prize is
Iran, and that the Bush junta is more determined than ever to cause the fall of Iran. The U.S. knows that the major obstacle for its desire to
control this whole vast and extremely rich area is nothing and nobody less than ISLAM. The materialistic, sex and violence oriented American culture
does not get along with the anti-materialistic, family and moral oriented Islamic traditional values. If the U.S. wants to maintain its control over
this vast domain of the Islamic world in the long run without running into fierce resistance from all corners, it will need to change these
traditional values of the people there. And the only way to do so is for the U.S. to get rid of Islam. This is the new crusades, and do not
believe for one second that it was a mere coincidence that Bush jr in his speech right after 9/11 stated that a new crusade will be launched. He knew
what he said and he meant it! 9/11 was part of this plan. It was the only way the U.S. could land its troops in the backyard of China and Russia
without any resistance. How could any country say no to the U.S. "war on terror" after such a horrific ordeal as the WTC attacks? Something of
that incredible and shocking scope was needed in order to shut the world up, and even create empathy on behalf of the rest of the world for the U.S.
And the U.S. would gain a whole package of benefits so that it could implement its vicious plan, including the worldwide campaign to discredit and
bash Islam and Muslims. And we see how things are continuing to unfold in this direction. As a result, people around the world are openly making
racist remarks about Muslims that would have been unheard of prior to the U.S. campaign. People in many societies have increasingly become more
racist in many ways. FOX TV News bluntly propagates racism and talks about a "Muslim invasion of Europe". And what happened to the religious
freedoms and tolerance that these societies were taking so much pride in and which is part of their constitutions?
Meanwhile, Iran is taking steady and confident steps towards becoming an industrialised country. Iran is actively, very ambitiously and successfully
working on developing into a largely self-sufficient, industrialised, and technologically advanced world power. Iran has a level of scientific,
technological and infrastructural expertise at this point that it exports its expertise to third world countries primarily in Africa, Asia and even
Latin America. And it is also culturally very active in these same regions. Ofcourse it still has a long way to go to become a fullfledged
industrialised world power. But it's surely heading that way, and pretty much on its own. Iran is also very busy developing and expanding a
sophisticated infrastructure Contrary to what many believe because of the EXTREMELY biased media coverage of Iran, Iran is actually very progressive
in many social, cultural and political aspects. Surely there are many negatives involved as well, but the world would be very surprised if they knew
about some of the progressive stuff going on inside Iran. Just this year some 80 dams are being built across the country, and that's in addition to
the 274 which already exist. (Only a few of these were built during the Shah's time, prior to the Islamic revolution) Iran is also very busy
developing its tourism industry and has set a side a budget of $80 billion for this year to develop and expand its tourism infrastructure. The
president of the International tourism association or whatever it is called expressed his confidence that Iran within a few years will become one of
the hottest tourist countries in the world because of its extremely varied climate and nature, with snowcovered mountains and skiing, dense woods,
apl-like mountains, deserts, tropical landscapes and beaches, and because of its ancient and sophisticated civilization, highly refined arts, the
biggest collection of museums in the Middle East and one of the biggest in Asia.
So, how would it look for the U.S. with its vicious plans in that vast region to have an Iran in the middle of it all, which is the only country
except Egypt which is a real natural national state, and which has a historical and cultural influence that reaches far beyond its borders in every
direction in that region - an ISLAMIC Iran that will be a powerful, progressive, modern, industrialized, advanced and highly influential power, and a
popular tourist spot? It wouldn't look good at all! First of all it would send the signal to all other Muslim countries that an Islamic theocracy
managed to do all that on its own. And it will also send a signal to the world telling it that its biased coverage about Iran and Islam was nothing
else but just that, and it will show the world that an Islamic country can also be very progressive and advanced in all aspects.
But more than anything else, such a power in the middle of the delicious cake that the U.S. wants to cut up for itself will pose as a rival to the
U.S. and Israel and their interests, and this is the biggest reason why the U.S. and Israel will do whatever is in its power to make sure that Iran
falls. But they will not succeed, but that's another story alltogether.
The U.S. will loose this war on Islam - It has already gone too far so that it's beyond repair. However the furhter they go the worse the
consequences will be for them eventually. It will thus also loose control over the Caspian Sea and Persian Gulf oil, and over the vast natural gas
reserves of Central Asia, which is one of the reasons it also invaded Afghanistan. Surely the transgressions and agressions of the U.S will lead to
a very nasty and devastating world war eventually. This is the reason why the Chinese, Russians, Indians and Iranians are expanding their military
might. Then afterwards, an entirely new and fresh world order will emerge which will be much more fair than any that we have known until now.
The problem with Islam is people like you will never accept responsibility for their fellow Muslims crimes, instead you spread LIES about Americans to
inflame other weak-minded folk who don't know any better.
"Fellow Muslim crimes" - that's very qute! Just as you as a Christian will not accept responsibilty for the crimes of the crusaders, whitch
hunters, child molesting priests, anti-abortion terrorists, Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, KKK, or Jeffrey dahmer and other Christian serial killers, I
as a Muslim REFUSE to accept responsibility for something that neither I nor any of my relatives or friends have any part of. Just how incredibly
ignorant and stupid can you be? You are the one spreading lies about Muslims, and weak-minded is exactly what you and most others who voted that
stupid and vicious Texas clown and murderer into office for a second time are!
Saddam and his sons committed rapes, murders, wars and atrocitys in the MILLIONS, yet you would never dream of attacking them...cause their
Muslim also right? If a fellow Muslim commits these crimes.....thats fine right? Not worthy of your time.
Yes, and Saddam and his sons were supported by the U.S., armed by the U.S., and promoted by the U.S. for all those years, while the U.S. knew of all
the autrocities they committed against their own people. You know it sounds to me that you have a pretty low iq and that you as a result have been
brainwashed by the evil evangelic body snatchers the way you speak about us Muslims as if we were some horrible species from another planet. Did it
ever cross your mind that Iran and Iraq were involved in an 8 year long war - well, Iranians are Muslim and Iraqis are Muslim too.....DUH!!! Get
it??? And what about the 57 bodies of innocent Iraqi Muslims found in the Tigris river who the "Muslim" insurgents killed. You're just a waste of
my time! You're too uneducated and unintelligent.
Your Islamic religion is Evil in the purest form, its still stuck in the 12th century and we Christian Americans are gonna drag Islam into the
21st century so Islam can have a future and perhaps more reasonable Muslims than you can start speaking out and confronting the Hypocrisy that I see
in your ramblings.
You don't know anything about Islam to know whether it's evil or good. YOU are definitely the one stuck in the 12th century man!!!!! And you
"Christian" American fascist criminals who steal money from poor innocent and utterly naive people are not going to drag us anywhere. You can drag
yourselves to hell. And you shouldn't even take the word "hypocrisy" in your mouth before you have learnt what it means. And once you have
learnt what it means you will know just who are the hypocrites! Heil Bush!
