The lands were where the law and Justice started. Emperor Dayukku was known for his Justice. His descendant, Emperor Cyrus the Great came up with declarations of human right for the first time in the history of humanity.

The lands were where extremism and violent started. Emperor Darius the Great's violent practice continues on today by the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) and the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Emperor Darius the Great said, "I send my servant, to find, Fravartish, and arrest him, bring him to me, I suppose, that was my desire. Now he is walking in his way to me, as known, now (he) is with me, as known, his ears, (h)as known his noise. I hurt him very much, cut it off. One of his eyes, I take out, in our road, tie him down, in front of my castle, on my walkway. This is my work, can you see, after that I am king, (tell) the people of Hagmatâna, those who separate from me, is not wise. ". See 73, 74, 75 and 76 in column 2 of Behistun Inscriptions by Hamma Mirwaisi below.

The document above is the root of the violent practices in Iran. The Iranian people are suffering for thousands of years. Iranian people's stories are the stories of the unfortunate nations on earth, because of the violence is always above the laws.

Fravartish II, grandson of legendary Emperor Cyaxares I, of Median Empire stands up against unjust practice by Emperor Darius the Great. Emperor Darius the Great killed the son of Cyrus the Great, the last Emperor of the Median Empire. And he took over the country illegally. He butchered people from the Median and Persian regions and others who stand in his way.

The story of Emperor Uvaxshtrahyâ (Cyaxares I) of the Median Empire

The son of Emperor Phraorte (Fravartish I), Emperor Uvaxstra or Cyaxaras [56], became the third Emperor of the Median Empire after Emperor Ashurbanipal of Assyrian Empire killed his father. He was also known as Hvakhshathra (Hva-kh-sha-thra), meaning he is the Shah of Shah's. The Median Empire originated the name because, for the first time, the Median Emperor ruled over many different nations with different religions, each of which had its own Shah. They, however, only paid taxes to the central government in Ecbatana.

Xasro (from the Kurdish) or Kayxosrew (Uvaxstra, 625-585 BC) is another title, meaning, "He is better." He made the mistake initially of continuing the war with Assyria, but he stopped when he realized he was not succeeding. During the Assyrian war, his father's army was supported by the Scythian people under King Madius, son of Protohyes [57]. They remained with Emperor Cyaxaras after his father was killed, but when he stopped the war, they followed him to Ecbatana. In Ecbatana, the Scythians seized power and took over the Median Empire, forcing the young Emperor Cyaxares to submit to King Madius of Scythia, another branch of the Airyanem Vaejah nations (653-625 BC). Madius declared himself King of Kings of the Median Empire and he ruled the Empire for many years. His rule and his army later brutalized the Median people; they treated the population badly and in their own homeland.

The Median and Assyrian war

Emperor Cyaxares was the most brilliant politician, organizer, planner, and religious and military leader of the Median Empire. He built many religion temples for Anahita [60] throughout the Median Empire. He immediately reorganized and modernized the Median army. Learning from past mistakes, his military reputation exceeded those who preceded him. He was the first to divide the military into separate units: archers, spearmen and cavalry. He trained his army in military procedures and in how to command; the army learned techniques on how to be effective in war. The military became organized as a military force with discipline, instead of being a mob as they were before. The military was divided into special units of warriors. Those who were to attack in front and be ready to die for the cause were called Bears ("Hurt or Kurd") followed by Tiger ("Elam") and leopard ("Parsa").

He never favored the Median people over any other branches of the Airyanem Vaejah people. He always said that unity among the Airyanem Vaejah nations was the key to its survival in the presence of Semitic aggression. He even brought back the Scythians to join him in the war against the Assyrian Empire.

He realized that war needs alliances and logistic supplies to achieve a successful result. After all, he was preparing to attack a large empire with much experience in war. The Assyrian Empire has been around for a long time; they were a force not easily defeated. He was a determined leader and desired vengeance for his father's death. He called on the Madayu relatives from Parsu, Scythian, Parthian, and other branches from the Airyanem Vaejah nation. They joined him because they also had been abused by the Assyrian Empire.

He realized that King Nabopolassar [61] of Babylon also hated the Assyrian Empire even though they were both Semitic peoples, because Assyria abused every nation in the region, even one of their own. He formalized the alliance by having his daughter, princess Amytis (Hamy-tis, meaning "the beauty all yours"), marry Prince Nebuchadnezzer II, son of King Nabopolassar.

The alliance attacked the Assyrian Empire from the north and south simultaneously. They entered Nineveh, the capital, in 612 BC, three years after my birthday; Astyages was born five years before me. The Median and Babylonian armies rooted out all Assyrian resistance in the region.

After the defeat of the Assyrian Empire, the Babylonians added western territories to their Empire and Media added territories east of the Halys River. The region had peace for a time after the Assyrians were no longer a major military force in the region.
