Nationality of Terrorism
This week when some Iranians blew themselves up, in a supposed attempt to kill Israeli diplomats, the Israelis, the USA and others have been quick to blame Iran, accusing it of terrorism tactics.
Let us look at this more logically for a moment.
The reason why they accuse Iran is because they feel it may be a reciprocal attack, after Israel murdered some Iranian scientists. Now that was an act of terrorism.
An Iranian man studied hard at school and became a specialist in a particular field. Just as any American would do, he then sought to get employment for his efforts. Being a patriot, he was quite content to work for his government in the field for which he had become proficient and working in order to receive, a decent wage with which to maintain his family.
One day an Israeli, for whom he may never have known, from a country he may or may not have had views about, kills him.
- Who is the Terrorist?
Why is it when the US is trying to fight a war on terror, they are themselves using terror tactics? Who is and what should be done about it?
- Is the War, on Terrorists or Terror?
We are told that we are winning the war on terror. Is this true? What will define success and is it possible to have two winners?
So even if the Thai police did ascertain that the attempted assassin of the Israeli diplomats was from Iran. What does that mean?
Out of the 19 terrorists that supposedly took part in 9/11: 15 were Saudis, 2 were from The United Arab Emirates, one was from Lebanon and one was from Egypt.
I did not see the US immediately blame one of these countries for the actions of any of their citizens. They instead blamed Iraq and Afghanistan. What is the difference here?
War on Terror
To apportion blame and execute the Iranian scientists for the Iranian government’s nuclear program is like executing the pilot of the aircraft involved in the Hiroshima bombing. To say that the action of any one of its citizens abroad is automatically by order of that persons government, would mean that the marines flying the SS flag were doing so under orders. The truth is we know that the marines were in their government’s employ: that has yet to be determined of the Iranians.
If Israel wants to come to its own conclusions, then that is their business and they should keep it to themselves. Especially when they know that all actions create a reaction.
The US government should not interfere or comment in any way. It is between those two countries only and Israel was the initiator. It should not be allowed to be used as a tool of the American elite to foster talk of war or conflict.
To fight a war on terror means to fight acts of terrorism from whichever quarter they may arise. Not to do so would mean that you are using the term “war on terror” as an excuse to fight personal battles and these battles, when undertaken by a government, should be with the blessing of their people, having first informed them of the facts.
For politicians to promote a war for their own and a few friends personal gain is in itself, an act of terror, against their own citizens.
- CNN Biased
Why would the CNN disregard and ignore an expert they themselves brought in? What is the truth? What effect does it have on the International community?
- Are Nuclear Weapons, Deterrents?
We are told that countries have nuclear weapons as deterrents only. Is this true? If this is true, then why are we creating the needs for more countries to acquire their own deterrents?

With troubles escalating in the Middle East what is the talk of chemical weapons and what role is the US playing?
