What our government is doing in the Middle East is Terrorism! Chomsky makes a good case for this in "Hegemony or Survival." The United States and
CIA overthrew the democratic leader of Iran in 1953. Once we overthrew their democracy, we replaced it with our puppet dictator, the Shah. The Shah
was a brutal dictator who murdered and tortured many. Once he was in power, US and British oil companies were operating over 50% of the oil wells.
By the way, we supported Iran's right to nuclear energy then....now they're next on our hit list.
Saddam Hussein was also "our" dictator for a while. We gave him billions plus weaponry to murder Iranians. Even gave him chemical weapons. Even
gave him the nod to invade Kuwait. He took the bait, and we invaded Iraq. Also, reinstated the dictator in Kuwait.
And don't need to tell anyone about the lies that brought us to war with Iraq again. Don't let the government or media fool you, we own that oil.
We now have permanent bases throughout the middle east. The reasons to go to war were propaganda...no WMDs, no imminent threat, and no links between
Iraq and 9/11.
The government tells us that its all about spreading democracy. This too is propaganda. The CIA coup on Iran's democracy is proof. Our cozy
relationships with dictators in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Kuwait, etc is also proof. The truth is that our government would rather support a dictator
any day, as long as he's goes alone with our agenda. We even give them tons of money and weapons to exterminate any opposition to their power.
Things will get worse. The US foreign policy started out as one of self defense only...we didn't intervene in other country's affairs. After WWII,
all that changed. Preemptive war became accepted if we were sure that we were being attacked, we could strike first. Now, its a policy of Preventive
war...this is scary because now we can wage war based on our opinion that some country may wage war on us one day. Don't need any proof of anything.
We can just say that Iran would like to have WMDs and say they would use them, and this is all we need to justify war. Think about it...with this
policy we could justify war with just about anybody.
