    Kourosh Ziabari: Who pays for the loss of life in Iran? Tis is a simple fix. All Iran has to is behave like a civilized nation and not like state run by raving lunatics. You can’t blame others when your misdeeds lead to you being blackballed. [...]

    Don’t take it personal, but you Muslims are stupid if you don’t unite!

    The new Nazis (Jews, Christians, etc.) will murder you!

    Don’t you get it? Nobody in the West cares about your lives!

    Sir, The United States (at the behest of the British government and present day British Petroleum) did participate in the 1953 coup that toppled the government of Prime Minister Mossadeg. It has since publically stated its regret for the incident (which fell on deaf Iranian ears). In early 1979, the Shah had rightfully lost the support of his country. The United States chose to not support him and allow the Iranians to determine their own destiny. The US was actively seeking to maintain relations with the new Islamic government. As a sign of gratitude, on November 4 1979, the Iranian government declared war against the United States. The purpose of this was to humiliate and force the resignations of the then Prime Minister Bazargan and his cabinet. They may have understood that they could have been liable as war criminals had America attacked and conquered Iran. Afterward, Khomeini was able to install his own clerical constitution and turn himself into a new Shah. Hence Iranian democracy 2.0 came to an end 7 months after it started. Formal relations were suspended in March 1980. Iranian embassy personnel were given 72 hours to vacate Washington DC. The Iranian embassy remains preserved with dignity. The American Embassy has been turned into a museum of horrors with its “art”. Sculptures of blindfolded Americans, Statue of Liberty mockup, and the 1980 wreckage of a rescue helicopter. Across town, there is a memorial to the 1983 Beirut “martyrs” who murdered 241 unarmed American soldiers while they lay sleeping in bed.
    Khomeini chose poorly in endorsing the Embassy takeover. The students could have taken all of the documents and fled into the shadows within 24 hours without official government endorsement … oh well.

    In regards to the Iraq war, Sadaam realized that it was a hopeless stalemate in 1982 and wanted the war to end at Iran’s 1975-80 border. Iran had proven to its neighbors that it could defend itself. Those who had fought and died to that point were national heroes. Instead ‘dear leader’ decided that he wanted to fully conquer Iraq. All deaths after that point are on his hands alone. Giving young boys a cheap plastic key and having them blow themselves up for no viable reason is a crime. These boys never had the chance to live and grow. They never were able to get married and have children of their own. The amount of suffering their families had to go through was/ is equally as unjustified. Lastly, what is so holy about muslims killing each other (especially Shia vs. Shia)? Iraq was weakened with debt and is now torn to pieces.

    In regards to aircrafts, the Iranian government could have all of the Soviet garbage they can muster. If they want nice viable western aircrafts/ parts, they should seriously consider re-establishing relations with the US. Who would have thought that the Communist government of Vietnam and the USA would have normalized relations and undertake joint military exercises 35 years after the war ended. More than 3 million Vietnamese perished and more bombs were dropped than all of WWII. In closing, does it make sense to give any assistance to a country that is at war with you and chants for your death?

    Saddam only offered peace when he was losing. As soon as he had a chance to regroup, he would have attacked Iran again as he later attacked Kuwait. Saddam was a monster that the USA supported and helped for many years.

    After the xShah slaughtered thousands of Iranians in Zhalleh square, the next day the USA officially gave its verbal support to the Shah, which basically gave him more political power. The USA gave riot equipment to the xShah’s security, and trained the xShah’s savak. So, the USA did support the xShah during the revolution. The US embassy takeover was like a little mosquito bite compared the the massive wounds that the USA inflicted on Iran.

    Actually, Iranians overwhelmingly voted for the Khomeini government.

    The same can be said for the accusers, you know, although the apologist has the unique malady of being able to interpret everything according to their pre-existing dogmatic conclusions.. All we have to do is behave like a civilized nation and not like a state run by raving lunatics. We can’t blame others when our misdeeds lead us to being blackballed. Perhaps you can point to the numerous Iranian invasions of other neutral or peaceable nations, their extraordinary rendition of civilians, and their constant blaming of their own victims for the death rained upon them? Perhaps you can also point out the countries that they’re currently occupying as examples of their barbarism. We tried to take them out, failed, and settled for punishing the whole country with sanctions, but they’re supposed to love us? This article has an Iranian source so you think all you need to do is smear him and his people and this whole issue will go away. But ultimately, people are starting to see the propaganda game for what it is, and nobody on either side is seeing any benefit from it. Perhaps it’s time to ask ourselves if war is a product of human nature or simply a side effect of being forced into survival mode amidst a sea of abundance.

    “Giving young boys a cheap plastic key and having them blow themselves up for no viable reason is a crime.”

    That never happened. That was just Western propaganda from movies like “Not Without My Daughter” which was made in Israel. No one under 16 was permitted into the military.

    “In closing, does it make sense to give any assistance to a country that is at war with you”

    Iran is not at war with the USA. Rather it is the USA that is at war with Iran. The USA helped Saddam murder Iranians. The USA put all sorts of sanctions on Iran right after the revolution including a wheat sanction to starve Iranians. It is the USA that has repeatedly said that all options are on the table, and has funded anti-Iranian terrorists like the Jundallah, and the MKO. Iran has said that it is willing to reestablish relations with the USA, but the USA (under the thumb of the Zionist lobbies) repeatedly opts for hostilities. Instead, the USA obstructs Iran’s peaceful nuclear ambitions and creates all sorts of fabricated and hostile accusations with no proof while the USA helps Israel slaughter Palestinians and Lebanese.
