I have 5 fans: Become a Fan. You'll get emails whenever I post articles on OpEdNews
I am a native of Iran (pronounced Eeran NOT Eye-ran). After living and working in many countries, I have become an international business expert. I am an independent business Professor and documentary film producer about environment and creatures in it.
I have spent most of my professional life as a university Professor and as an Advisor to companies seeking to streamline their operations and to make them more efficient. My Doctorate Degree is in Quantitative Methods, Production and Operations Management.
Proper name where Iran is located is called: West Asia (not the wrong term of Middle East). The term Middle East is a fake and artificial term invented in the 20th century for the benefit of rationalizing British (and hence European) imperial interests.
My professional and personal experience has convinced me that the world has become more dangerous and threatening. I have created several NGOs to protect what is left of the environment and of the creatures in it and to preserve historical heritages with emphasis on Iran's heritage and contributions to this world.
* A rose by any name will smell sweet, a crime by any name will still be foul.
* In order for peace to exist, there has to be justice for all people and for all nations.
* Seeking Justice is meaningless if it is not translated into action.
* Life is life for men and for all creatures.
* Hunting is not a sport. A real sportsman defends on his own strengths, not on a firearm.
* Give a man a gun, he will kill someone; give a man a bank, he will kill everyone.
* People should not be indoctrinated with lies, only to learn the truth later - - every time a truth is told, some new understanding and tolerance between people and nations can take root.
* Poor does not mean stupid. Rich does not mean civilized and smart.

* Happiness isn't where you find it. Happiness is where you create it.
Why P5 +1 nuclear agreement will set a dangerous precedent
As long as Iranians remain independent, Western and Russian policies and goals towards them will not change. They will continue their covert and overt operations to control Iran's natural resources. The weakening of Iran because of illegal sanctions will continue after a period of calm that may last for a few years. Nothing will change for Iranians or their human lives or their human rights.

In 2014-2015 time frame, a number of people who had read Iranian oil contracts and agreements have spoken that there were a possibility that the Iranian government during Shah's regime did not realize the term of the contracts was limited to the time while Shah or his regime (Pahlavi) remained in power.

Remembering Iran Air Flight 655 incident
On July 3 in summer of 1988, the USS Vincennes, a U.S. Navy warship, shot down an Iranian airplane (Iran Air flight 655 -- an Airbus A300 civilian airliner) over the Persian Gulf with a surface to air missile. The ship was in an Iranian water and the incident took place in Iranian airspace.
Ping-pong diplomacy had a positive impact on the China -- United States relationship in the early 1970s.
Will wrestling diplomacy work to ease the tension between United States and Iran?
Lip Service to Human Rights: What Are the Causes?
In view of "human rights," Western countries have no credibility with the surviving people in the Persian Gulf region. In order to work with the citizen participants in these uprisings, the West must deal honestly with the historical background of its involvement in the Middle East and recognize that ultimately, despite having military power on their side, political dictators, and the economic interests will not survive.

Human Life Should Be the Priority!
It appears that the "international community or police" is opposed to Iran being prosperous and to the well-being of its people. Certainly, that is what their actions in the name of "human rights" seem to indicate.
Illegal sanctions on Iran and its people must be lifted!

Possible Boycott of 2011 AFC Asian Football Cup in Qatar
"Persian Gulf" reflects Persian contributions to the whole world and the sacrifices Persians made to keep the gulf open so that other nations could benefit from it. Iran, Uzbekistan, and others must boycott the 2011 AFC Asian Cup games in Qatar if any name other than Persian Gulf is used.

Immigrants As Scapegoats
Most Western countries didn't care about the immigration issue when their economy was doing well, but that's not the case now. Banks, Insurance companies, and Military industry have ruined the quality of life throughout the world. All races have been affected, stop blaming the powerless. Address real issues such as global warming, phony money lending practices, and depletion of natural resources of third world countries.

The Priceless Heritage in a Name
The Persian Gulf Organization has received many complaints from its members in the past several weeks that the Western media again has started using an incorrect name instead of Persian Gulf. The USA and Western military officers, especially those stationed in the Middle East intentionally use "The Gulf," or "Arabian Gulf" in their presentations. It seems that the Western countries media want to antagonize Iran or Iranians.
