" Production of weapons of mass destruction is legalized murder"prohibited in Islam."
President Obama, like George Bush, labels Iran a rogue nation that has become "isolated" in the world. If that's true, nobody told the 120 nations of the Non-Aligned Movement, which unanimously supported Iran's right to develop the full cycle of nuclear energy. The non-aligned countries comprise a majority of the Earth's population and two-thirds of the UN General Assembly. However, the permanent members of the UN Security Council run the show.
That must, and will, change, Ahmadinejad told his guests:
" Any time there is war or transgression, a member of the Security Council is present. So, who is there to complain to?
" The United Nations was created to manage world affairs"but management is under how many [countries]? One? Two? Three? If we want to establish justice, everyone must participate"equal participation in the management of the world."
It is a message with which the vast bulk of humanity agrees -- which is why the Non-Aligned Nations took its stand, and why the United States and its imperial junior partners have few cards to play other than war and threats of war. Peace is the last thing on Washington's agenda, as the Euro-American crucifixion of Libya, and now Syria, attests. Stanley Klein, a "Jewish lawyer" who spoke at the Iranian dinner, had it right: "If the U.S. cannot convert a country into a client state, then it prefers a weak or failed state."
At this stage in history, the United States exerts all its energies to make the world fail . With each passing day, more and more people of the Earth come to the realization that, for humanity to succeed, the U.S. empire must be dismantled.
