We forget about the radical changes that came about in politics the last 60 to 70 years.

If you see where civilization was heading and where we’re at now, I wonder if we as citizens of the world, through the decades were really aware of what we voted for and how wise it was??

I wonder if the global village will not eventually become a local catastrophy for this planet??

With respect, just believe in “Truth is stranger than fiction” and you can bring your blood pressure down and add a few more years to your life and maybe by then a miracle will answer all your questions.

Pity for China and Russia though, they lost a golden opportunity to reinforce this notion when they voted in favor of more sanctions albeit they were under manipulation by US and Israel.

You assume that somebody can ‘manipulate’ nations like China & Russia. That implies that 100’s people who work for foreign relations in these countries are … stupid.
Nop. USA/West just ‘paid’ them enough so they stopped supporting Iran.
Russia got 4 modern vessels from France. China got another 3-4 months ‘free’ currency manipulation.

Most people see logic in both Iran rush for nukes as well as Israel gamble to avoid Iran with nukes.
FIY
Iran has more American blood on its hand than any other nations in Meddle East. Iran supports every shia militia in region that fight US in Iraq; NATO in Afghanistan, fight governments in Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq and Said Arabia etc.
Very few people naive enough to see Iran as peaceful nation.

It seems that it is more about the pecking order in international affairs .There is no democracy or proper constitution to regulate the conduct among nations and there absolutely is no equality .Some dictate and others obey ,that is the principle .

Can it get any more ludicrous than this?

Since when is it ok to use threat of an attack on a sovereign nation to get sanctions imposed as Israel has done in lobbying China to vote for sanctions on Iran. Surely the country that is threatening military attacks needs to be censured and warned of severe consequences if they should carry out such attacks. Especially when such an aggressor as Israel is in illegal possession of nuclear weapons and remarkably no western nations have called for accountability of such illegal weapons yet they went to war and killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis on mere suspicion that they possessed such weapons.

Where is the justice?

Where is the even-handedness?

Where is the fairness?

Where is the accountability?

Who are really the evil ones in this whole saga?

Lately the West appears to have taken on the role of being the least moral players on the world scene while Brazil, Turkey, China and Russia appear to be more honest brokers. Pity for China and Russia though, they lost a golden opportunity to reinforce this notion when they voted in favor of more sanctions albeit they were under manipulation by US and Israel.

Why is Israel allowed to have nukes but not Iran? Just because there is an awful lot of Israeli and Jew money going into the US politicians’ pockets…. I say change the way polical parties are funded in the US and we’d me moving in the right direction to a better world. No one should be allowed to give large sums of money to political parties. That corrupts.

Anyone thinking Iran merely seeks regional power is naive, or just plain hoping their leaders are rational human beings. I would think they will say “Mission Accomplished”. Then they will wait for their fictional Mahdi to return before the warheads rain down on themselves.
