On Jan 8th 2007 a United States submarine collided with a 300'000 tonne Japanese oil tanker in the Straits of Homuz. This went almost completely
unreported by the Western media. A few articles in the Dubai and Australian media is all. This quite simply didn't happen. In 2005 US submarine
Philadelphia collided with a Turkish merchant ship in the Arabian Gulf, this also happened, but at the same time didn't. A few days ago we were
informed US aircraft carrier, USS John C Stennis will depart for the Gulf region. This will be the second to enter the region.
This military build up in the Middle-East is totally unjust. The Iranian nation over the 5 years has been systematically surrounded by the United
States and its pathetic little 'allies'. The Iranians are of course 'like Hitler', 'evil' and their civilisation is gernerally inferior to the
west. The big boys are playing their international game of empires from the Kremlin, Whitehouse and wherever the hell else. Be it 'providing
security' or 'supressing evil', its the same old games with fancy new names.
To the North Georgia's 'Rose' revolution has installed a pro-US government - the new Georgian government has of course reduced the 'ethnic
cleansing' and 'torture' that was taking place beforehand. While the new Georgian government was dealing with these issues the US has armed and
trained the new Georgian military, and decided they would like to stay and provide 'security for the Georgian Nation'. The bases are being built.
To the East the United States has invaded Afganistan.
To the West the United States has invaded the sovereign state of Iraq.
To the south is a sea swarming with aircraft carriers, patrol ships and submarines, so many they continuously collide, and of course - the massive US
air deployment in Qatar.
This current situation in the Middle-East is total madness. It has nothing to do with terrorism and spreading democracy. It is an expansion of empire,
nothing more, nothing less. The leaders can find their reasons, they always do. I do not support the Iranian or American Elite, I support the ordinary
people of both countries who are soon to get #ing killed.
