Before outlining my attitude toward the article and its contents, I wish to make the following things clear from the very start. First of all, I have
little to no respect for the leadersip of Iran, either its secular, or religious leadersip. They have variously disgraced thier own people with thier
behavior, and have held them back with double standards, and placing greater importance in showing off to the rest of the world, than they have in the
interests and needs of thier own people.
However, that does not mean that I automatically agree with the psychopathic, paranoid, and above all hipocritical western power block, when it shows
such indecent rudeness, in assuming without a single publically known bit of proof, that Iran is actually in the midst of constructing a nuclear
weapon. The reality of the situation, as far as anyone can make out, is that the western power block has decided that since Iran is not a democracy,
and since it has a shady past with regards to its behavior toward its neighbors, that it CANNOT operate a totally peaceful nuclear program. It has, as
far as can be ascertained, come to this conclusion based on little else than xenophobia and idiocy.
If Iran can make its nuclear power plant work effectively and elegantly, then its power needs will be met, and comfortably too by all accounts. As it
is, as with many nations in the region, access to power is not as easy as it could or should be, and if Iran is to modernise, technologically and
socially, then it must be allowed the same access to power and services that require that power, that you or I would expect at home. In the long run,
this will mean more people becoming net literate, as the vital power supplies that govern hard wired machines will be constant or with less
interuptions (meaning less complications and hard drive errors caused by a rapid and unorthodox shut down of any system using mains power, rather than
batteries) . This alone could drive social reform in the nation, without the need for any of this territorial gonad waving, that the big wigs in world
politics partake of.
