Another article, from a respected British news agency, states that "China gave no hint on Wednesday of giving ground to U.S. demands to curb Iran's oil revenues, rejecting Washington's sanctions on Tehran as overstepping..."

The sheer tranquility with which the United States and civilized Europe carry out this campaign with incredible and systematic acts of terrorism is enough to shock anybody. Just look at these lines reported by another important European news agency: "The murder on Wednesday of Iranian nuclear specialist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan [a scientist at the Natanz nuclear plant] was the fourth attack to kill a leading scientist in the country in almost exactly two years."

On January 12, 2010: "Massoud Ali Mohammadi, a particle physics professor at Tehran University is killed when a booby-trapped motorcycle explodes outside his home in the capital."

On November 29, 2010: "Two attacks target leading Iranian nuclear scientists on the same day. Majid Shahriari, a key member of Iran's Atomic Energy Agency, is killed in Tehran by a limpet bomb attached to his car. His colleague Fereydoon Abbasi Davani is also targeted by a bomb attached to his car, but escapes." The car was parked in front of the Shahid Beheshti University in Tehran where both men worked as professors.

On July 23, 2011: "Gunmen shoot dead Dariush Rezaei-Nejad, a senior scientist who is reportedly associated with the defense ministry, and wound his wife as they waited for their child outside a Tehran kindergarten."

On January 11, 2012 -- the same day that Ahmadinejad traveled from Nicaragua to Cuba to give a conference at the University of Havana -- scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, "a deputy director at the Natanz nuclear enrichment facility, is killed in a car bomb blast outside the [Allameh Tabatabai] University in east Tehran." As in previous years "Iran once again accused the United States and Israel."

The killings represent a systematic and selective slaughter of brilliant Iranian scientists. I have read articles by known Israeli sympathizers who write about crimes carried out by Israeli intelligence services in cooperation with the United States and NATO as if they were the most normal occurrence.

At the same time, Moscow news agencies report that "Russia warned that in Syria a similar scenario is developing as to that in Libya, and added that this time the attack will be launched from neighboring Turkey.

"The secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, said the West wants to "punish Damascus not as much for repressing the opposition, but because it is unwilling to sever ties with Tehran."

"NATO members and some Persian Gulf states, operating according to the Libya scenario, intend to move from indirect intervention in Syrian affairs to direct military intervention....This time the main strikes forces will not be provided by France, the U.K. or Italy, but possibly by neighboring Turkey."

"Washington and Ankara are now assumed to be negotiating a "no-fly" zone over Syria, where Syrian armed insurgents can be trained and concentrated, added Patrushev."

News is not only coming out of Iran and the Middle East, but also from other parts of Central Asia near the Middle East. These reports show the great complexity of the problems that can arise from this dangerous region.

The United States has been led by its contradictory and absurd imperial policy to get involved in serious problems in countries such as Pakistan, whose borders with Afghanistan were drawn up by the colonialists without taking into account culture or ethnicities.

In Afghanistan, which defended its independence against English colonialism for centuries, drug production has multiplied in the wake of the Yankee invasion. Meanwhile, European soldiers, supported by drone airplanes and armed with sophisticated US weapons, carry out deplorable massacres that increase the people's hatred and ward off any possibilities of peace. All this and other dirty actions are also reported by Western news agencies...

"WASHINGTON, January 12, 2012 -- US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta called the actions of four U.S. marines who urinated on corpses in Afghanistan 'utterly deplorable.' The video of the act was circulated in the Internet.

"'I have seen the footage, and I find the behavior depicted in it utterly deplorable,'

"'This conduct is entirely inappropriate for members of the United States military and does not reflect the standards of values our armed forces are sworn to uphold.'"
