I found your "evidence" lacking. You are mistaken in assuming that failure to agree with you means a failure to look at your points. I have given evidence as well: Would I be justified in saying that since you do not now agree with me, you must not have looked at it?

What keeps on being ignored is that the war in Iraq is a triumph for the fanatics behind September 11th. It's helped them, it continues to help them. It might get presented as a "war against terror" but in real terms it is a war engineered by terrorists as a way of extending and deepening their power and influence.

Going back another step, of course, it's down to the architects of September 11, since without that Bush would never have been able to take the USA to war in Iraq, and Blair wouldn't have tagged along behind.

And, since the Iraq war has suited Al Qaeda down to the ground, it's another of their successful atrocities - and this time they got someone else to do it for them.

If Wolfgang is going to go around twisting people's words and taking them out of context to make irrelevant and highly questionable points at the expense of the people he is targeting, he is not making a coherent point, nor is he contributing to coherency in the discussion itself. Quite the opposite... he is creating confusion and he is obscuring real points that others have made.

Some may be interested to read what a quite conservative German newspaper (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) has written recently about Blair/Iraq/London. Yes, it is really conservative, but keep in mind McGrath's warning that European conservatives don't look so conservative to Americans.

"Blair is a master at denying claims that no one has made and making demands to which no one can object. First, he denies that the Iraq war has been a cause of terrorism and then he demands that we combat terrorism, condemn its methods and pull out its roots. Indeed, the only concession Blair has made is to admit that Iraq is becoming a recruiting ground for terrorists...The Iraq war was neither approved by the UN nor backed by the Arab world, and that's why people are able to propagandistically denounce it as an 'imperial crusade'. It's true that this war did not create terrorism, but it has encouraged it." (I pinched the translation from DER SPIEGEL)

While Mudcat was down, I picked out a few quotes. They are absolutely not aimed at any individual.

From Branch Rickey, Dodgers general manager who broke baseball's color barrier:

                He that will not reason is a bigot.
             He that cannot reason is a fool.
             He that dares not reason is a slave.

From me, I suppose:

             Back in the '60s, people often used the term 'heavy'. I once suggested that

                   "Sometimes 'heavy' just means that you've overlaoded your wagon with shit!"

From comic Don Rickles:

                   "Don't cross swords with someone who knows how to use one."

I never would have bothered with your or Bearded Bruce's way of expressing the causes of the deaths in Iraq. McGrath of Harlow's (or should it be McGrath's of Harlow?) one-eyed selectivity in when or whom he criticises in these threads was my target.

It is very easy to throw out allegations and comments without checking up on whether these are actually in accordance with the evidence, and some people do it constantly, even when it would only take a couple of seconds to check.

When we make some factual assertion about some issue which is relatively obscure, or subject to controversy, it is elementary good manners to provide links to sources.

And yet when Carol does that she is repeatedly attacked and insulted as if doing that kind of thing was a mark of obsession and imbalance. I wish that some of the people who lay into her would take a bit more care to check up on their facts, and to indicate their sources.

P.S. I wouldn't say that the US and Britain are always wrong (although they usually are). The way I would tend to put it is that the US and Britain almost always have a self-serving hidden agenda that is pursued at the expense of the civilians of many countries less powerful than them. (And this is what makes them wrong... because it is wrong to kill people and/or subjugate them for money/oil/power, etc.)

Long Live The Shah

http://www.sedona.net/pahlavi/content.html


If we're going to go down that partucular road, let's try this one on for size...

The Biography of Dr. Mohammad Mossadegh

"- Dr. Mossadegh was elected to the Parliament from Tehran, and it was during this period that the Qajar dynasty was overthrown and Reza khan declared himself the King of Iran. Mossadegh strongly criticized the Kingship of Reza khan, and when the sixth Majlis ended, and Reza Khan became the absolute dictator of Iran, Mossadegh was forced to stay at home for many years. During the last years of Reza Shah's reign, when most of the political figures were either deceased or had surrendered to the Pahlavi regime, Mossadegh was arrested and exiled for several months, but finally he was sent back to his Ahmad Abad country estate under house arrest. After the occupation of Iran by the British and Russian armies in 1941, Reza Shah was forced to abdicate and exiled to South Africa until his death, and Mossadegh returned to Tehran...

... - The people of Iran who were angered by Mossadegh's dismissal, revolted in favor of him and Ayatollah Kashani (who was a close ally of Mossadegh at that time), and against the new government and the Shah. After 4 days of bloody revolt, the people defeated the Ghavam's government and the shah's army, and once again Mossadegh became Prime Minister...

... - By controlling the Defense Ministry (previous War Ministry), Mossadegh succeeded in cleaning the army from corrupted officers, and this act angered the Royal Court.

    - In March of 1953, the Royal Court with the help of a group of clergies, expelled army officers, and ruffians, decided to perform a conspiracy plan against Dr. Mossadegh. The plan was that on the first day of March, the Shah would leave the capital for Europe and pretend that Mossadegh had forced him to leave the country. On the other hand the ruffians and expelled army officers would gather in front of the Royal Palace to avoid the Shah's departure. At the same time when Mossadegh comes out of the Royal Palace, they would attack and murder him. But since Mossadegh suspected the conspiracy at the last moment, he escaped the scene.

    - General Afshar-Toos, the loyal police chief of Mossadegh's government, was brutally murdered by the Royal Court's agents and the expelled officers.

    - Because of the continues disputes between the Parliament and the cabinet, and following the Majlis member's abdications, Mossadegh declared a national referendum to let the people choose between dissolvement of the Parliament, or cabinet's abdication. In this referendum (which was criticized by many figures, because of the separation of the Yes and No ballot boxes, and not being held at a same time in Tehran and other cities), the majority of the votes were for dissolvement of the Majlis, and it was dissolved in August of 1953.

    - On August 16, 1953, with accordance to an American-British designed plan, the Shah issued Dr. Mossadegh's dismissal, and the chief of the Royal Guards carried the formal notice to Mossadegh's house (which was also his Prime Ministry office) and was ordered to occupy the house by the Royal troops. But when the troops reached the Mossadegh's house, Mossadegh's guards immediately arrested the Royal Guard's chief and his troops. The coup was publicized and the Shah escaped the country for Italy.

    - On 17th and 18th of August 1953, people poured to the streets in support of Mossadegh and the status of Mohammad Reza and Reza Shah were pulled down all over the country.

    - On August 19, 1953, the intelligence services of U.S.A. and Britain (CIA - MI6), enforced a more precise and expensive coup d'etat plan, and this time succeeded in overthrowing Mossadegh's government. On this day, after bribing some of the grand Ayatollahs, army officers, ruffians, and the prostitutes, the coup makers pulled large mobs into the streets to demonstrate against the national government of Dr. Mossadegh. Because of the police chief treachery, the coup makers reached the house of the Prime Minister and after several hours of bombarding the house and bloody battle with the small group of Mossadegh's loyal guards, they entered the house and after plundering it, they burned the house."

Here are some key statements from my last post:

       "After the War, Stalin reneged on his promise to withdraw Soviet troops. Instead he used them to support secessionist regimes in Azarbaijan and Kurdestan. When Iranian public opinion, backed by international diplomacy and United Nations pressure, forced the Red Army to withdraw, Iranian forces under the command of the Shah marched to these north-west provinces, and in December, 1946, the secessionist movements abruptly collapsed.

Political instability continued in Tehran, however, and the government of Dr. Mossadegh, a nationalist Iranian to be sure, became embroiled with the still all-powerful Anglo-Iranian Oil Company. Efforts to create a new and vigorous society where blocked. because of continuous quarrels with Britain over the nationalization of our oil industry. This period of tension and instability ended in 1953."

Yep, once again the pesky Commies in Russia had a hand in the instability, wanting oil-rich Iran in their sphere of influence.

aa- I have read part of Kinzer's book and it is vomit.

Regarding how we'll never know what that part of the world would be like without Western interference, so what?

So nothing, if we don't engage in the kind of speculation that you were engaging in in your 24 Jul 05 - 05:34 PM post. Such speculation serves no useful purpose, and only tends to promote the stereotyps that are an all to common part of our daily discourse these days, and that do, ultimately, get used to justify treating Muslims and people from the Middle East as less than human, or as lesser humans. We are not in a position to judge them because of where they are now, since we contributed greatly to that particular state of affairs.
