"The blood of 80 million Iranians"
The United States government, the entirety of the Democratic and Republican parties, has killed millions of Iraqis in the most beastly way. No one has objected loudly enough to stop the slaughter.
On top of that, virtually every Democratic and Republican politician has voted to give massive support to Israel.
So Israel slaughters thousands more Palestinians, thousands more Lebanese, and howls for the blood of 80 million Iranians.
I hope to see all of these politicians tried by the International Criminal Court at the Hague.
Virtually every U.S. politician, from the most pitiful Michigan student government member to the mightiest Congressmen and Presidents, is hip-deep in the blood of Arabs and Afghans.
They would like to be exonerated of their guilt for this slaughter. But they cannot be exonerated; they will be found guilty, guilty, guilty.
Starving Iran to make Washington love you
Virtually every U.S. and Israeli politician is ready to re-open Auschwitz and barbecue Iran.
The starved, burnt corpse of Iran is the most dearly treasured political currency in Washington today.
Even a few desperate Palestine solidarity activists are ready to starve Iran, just to buy some love from Washington. I heard one of those activists say, "Let the sanctions and diplomacy do their job"!
I ask them: Don't you remember that Israel and America are thuggishly choking Gaza with sanctions? Why are you approving their thuggishness against Iran?
That grinning rapist called America
Every year since 1953, Iranians have been attacked by that grinning rapist known as the United States:
First, a bloody U.S. coup d'état;
Then, decades of torture by SAVAK;
Then an eight-year genocidal war;
Then the U.S. shoots down a big Iranian passenger plane;
Plus decades of devastating economic sanctions;
Plus assassins trained by America and Israel.
Don't play innocent – here is what you did to Iran
Ever since 1951, when Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh became Iran’s first democratically elected Prime Minister, Britain and the United States have been screaming that Iran was somehow a “threat” to the world.
In 1951, Britain was already telling the United Nations Security Council that Iran’s effort to nationalize its own oil industry was a "threat to the security of the world."
For the next two years, Britain did everything to starve and panic Iran.
'The U.S. news media compared Dr. Mossadegh to Hitler. Do you see how easily white people accuse Middle Easterners of being “Hitler”, simply for demanding independence?
In 1953, the United States launched a violent coup d'état against Iran. The entire political spine of the nation was crushed.
Dr. Mossadegh was caged and mocked by his tormentors. Life magazine called him “Mossy”.
In 1954, the New York Times crowed that ‘Today Mossadegh is where he belongs – in jail.”
For the next 25 years, Iranians were tortured and killed by SAVAK, which the United States and Israel trained.
Then in 1979, Iran freed itself from U.S. domination. So it became the target of a genocidal war backed by the United States’ allies. By the mid-1980’s, the United States was urging Saddam Hussein to bomb more of Iran, and was providing him with the means to do it. Over a million Iranians and Iraqis died.
Even now, the United States says it is ready to "obliterate" Iran. That is exactly how Hillary Clinton made the threat. After her threat, President Obama named her as his Secretary of State. That is the soul of liberal U.S. opinion.
The soul of conservative U.S. opinion is represented by Senator John McCain, who happily sang "Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran" to the tune of "Ba Ba Ba, Ba Barbara Ann," during his campaign for the U.S. Presidency.
Among famous American politicians, even the least rabidly Zionist are still… rabidly Zionist. Here is Congressman Ron Paul giving Israel the green light to attack Iran or anyplace else:
"I believe I'm the only candidate who would allow Israel to take immediate action to defend herself without having to get our approval. Israel should be free to take whatever steps she deems necessary to protect her national security and sovereignty." (Ron Paul, interviewed in Ha'aretz, Dec.28, 2011.)
Iran has never invaded anyone. Israel has invaded almost everyone in the Middle East.
Iran's civilization is not built on stealing Arab land.
Israel is a racist thugocracy; It stands for the robbery and rape of the Arab world.
So I say – keep your dirty hands off of Iran's throat.
I say – cut off every penny to Israel.
I say – stop spending trillions on killing Muslims.
I say – spend those trillions to re-build Detroit and every inner city in the United States.
