We Must Help the Iranian People to Dislodge the Vicious Doomsday Mullahs in Iran.
We no longer have any choice. We can no longer engage in the same old practices to deal with the massive and debilitating threats that face humanity. We must band together and pool our resources to meet the challenges.
Our planet’s problems are no longer local problems that parochial thinking and practices can address successfully. We cannot squander even an ounce of our sorely needed energy in petty squabbles and personal fights.
Unlike anything encountered in recent memory, the formidably complex and unique situation in today’s world poses an enormous challenge. It defies any conventional solution, and simply resorting to civil disobedience is the equivalent of fighting off a pack of hungry and blood-thirsty wolves with toothpicks!
The Western leaders must know that Ali Khamenei or his handpicked President, Ebrahim Raisi, and his ilk are not interested in any substantial negotiation, compromise, or a live-and-let-live policy. The Islamic Republic has no respect for the olive branches being extended to it by the Obama/Biden or Biden/Obama administration; it continues with full speed ahead in its quest for nuclear weaponry — and the power to intimidate the region as well as the entire world.
The best predictor of the future is the past. The religious fanatic mullahs’ record is one of deception, dissimulation, betrayal, violence, and much more. These Quran-trained and directed agents of a wrathful Allah can never be trusted. They are master schemers. They have been in the business of scheming for centuries. They have perfected the art of deception, double talk, double-dealing, and treachery.
The Western world must rid itself of the “happy talk” as we tranquilize ourselves by reasoning that these doddering old-world religious fools may be mischievous, but they could never do actual harm. Oh, sure, they might be arming some Iraqi Shiites, killing a few. U.S. soldiers provide a little support for Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas terrorists in Palestine, building several bases in South America and Africa, murdering Iranian people, and calling for the eradication of Israel—but they have no global destructive capacity. After all, we pacify ourselves that we’re not exactly talking about criminal masterminds like Hitler, or are we?
I do not claim to have all the answers, but I have a fair idea of where to begin. It is high time to realize that we are not dealing with the same social factors or even the same people of four decades ago. We need to collaborate on this effort and invite others who can contribute to this cause without placing personal fame and secondary gains ahead of the ultimate goal of re-educating, rebuilding, and liberating Iran.
We should envision an Iran that will allow the seeds of its ancient wisdom and goodness to grow and flourish again through art, music, poetry, and social dynamics. The U.S. has, in FREE Iran, its best friends in the entire Islamic world. The U.S. must help these Iranians to dislodge the vicious doomsday Mullahs, not as an act of altruism but as a prudent measure of enlightened self-interest.
