Observations of the other:
Iran both respects and fears USA.
USA has not treated Iran well.
And Muslims have their own cultural
paranoias. And Iran's Shiite's especially
the 13 th Imam clan are levels above
in terms of paranoia.
Abberjonny over compensates for his
fears of both his and Irans feelings of
inadequacy with empty threats and
They did declare and herbal cure for
This over compensation is a form of
FEAR relieve, and actually stress relief.
This was most recently demonstrated
in the announcement of the "Punch"
for the West. on the 11th.
The "Punch" was telegraphed on the 8th
notifying the IAEA they were going to
start enrichment to 20%, and ask them
to be present.
Iran is still crossing all the "T's" and
dotting the "i"s.
And that is very important.
They are still working with in "the"
There is some fear there.
And Iran is crossing a great divide.
Iran's intellectual growth has been remarkable,
they have experienced cultural shocks that
have crippled other societies.
Iran's culture has moved quickly from
something almost out of the 1800's era
to the 1950's in a very few generations.
They adapted, in Afghan the Taliban are
trying to turn time back to the 1800's
as a result of culture shock.
The Shah did rush Iran into the 1950's.
And without a huge bloody war the Iranian
people switched from a Monarchy to a kind
of theocracy which wants Nukes.
The Persians are remarkable, but
why did they chose this course and
Looking at even Iran's recent history
we may see some of the reasons for this
If we just take it as a given US didn't
do well for the Iranian people during
the Shah, which may be before some
of the even older generations memories,
they have reasons for concern.
The US took in the Shah for medical reasons.
And refused to let the Iranian doctors examine
Iran seized the American Embassy and
took the Americans hostage.
An act of WAR.
But it was Carter, and Zbigniew Brzezinski .
US backed the Shah.
They gave the Rezā Shāh Pahlavi, Shah of Iran confused signals about
the developing civil war, refused to let the new regime check the Shah's
health when they gave him entrance to US.
He didn't stop the Iraq invasion of Iran when they had a solution to
the hostage situation in hand.
And finally didn't condemn Iraq for using chem weapons against Iran
and voted in UN against sanctions on Iraq for use of chem weapons against
Iran had committed a seminal violation of US sovereignty in seizing
the US embassy and took hostages. For 444 days,
and Iran didn't get their asses kicked, which they expected,
they expected to pay a price for this they didn't and this confused the hell out of them.
And the al Qaeda cult pulls a 911.
And the worlds biggest dog
just shit on the neighbors yard,
( Iraq ) cause they were bad, Iran
had been at war with Iraq for 7 years
and it had been a draw.
And this big dog just put in new owners
in the house in 100 hours, but the kids like them.
And next door the dog attacked for
911,just 15 hours after 911 attack and drove
the Taliban out and has
been fighting them for 8 years. ( Afghan )
And behind them those neighbours have
nukes, but even then the big dog fires
missiles at al Qaeda in the neighbours yard.
( Pakistan )
But the Persians understand retribution.
And this supplies some succor and
And Iran thinks a gun might help protect
them, ( nuke ) against the dog, but Iran
has been talking out loud in the neighborhood
about shooting and killing the neighbors across
the street ( Israel ). Who do own many guns.
And the Iranians have been providing shivs and knifes
to the neighbor gangs, Hamas, Iraq resistance, Taliban
in Afghan ( IEDs ) and big rocks to Syria.
And there is fear among all the neighbors they might
start selling guns to the gangs, then every house will
want a gun ( nuke).
But these guns ( nukes) can kill millions of people.
And talking, visiting and trading to the psychotic neighbors on the other side of town
who might be selling guns ( N. Korea ).
And the big dog has told them they can't have a
gun. And has even blocked off some of their checking accounts.
And the big dog will blow up anywhere they put a gun.
There must be a way the big dog can provide
security assurances for the Iranian house in the middle of all this.
Where they maybe don't feel they need a gun.
Yes I know its over simplified but I think the flavor is right.
