Attack on Iran – possible reason for Nick Harvey sacking?

News have emerged in Daily Mail that Nick Harvey, former Lib Dem Defense Minister might have been sacked due to his views against an attack on Iran.  Daily Mail claimed Nick Harvey of saying he was “fired by Nick Clegg to allow Deputy Prime Minister to sign Britain up to an Israeli – US attack on Iran’s nuclear installations”.

If this news is true, we could undoubtedly assume that the Cameron Government has not learned anything from history of past 2 decades.  Wherever US and its allies have intervened in recent times, they have made a mess out of each situation, whether it is Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya.  Each intervention resulted taking Middle East one further step closer to deeper instability in the region in specific, and world in general.

As posted once earlier, what is Iran’s crime? That they want to go ahead with nuclear programme? Is nuclear programme a privilege available only to the developed, western countries? Iran has already confirmed several times that their nuclear programmes are only for peaceful operations in the country. They even welcomed UN to inspect their nuclear sites.

Even if we agree for argument sake that Iran wants to develop nuclear weapons, what is so “never-ever-before” heinous approach in that motive? Is this item only in agenda of Iran? How many other countries already have nuclear weapons in their kitty?

Have no doubt. I do not support nuclear weapons. My strong viewpoint is that the world should get rid of all of its nuclear weapons.  But it should be done in a phased manner, with the country with largest collection shedding them first. And not by threatening other nations.

How desperate can one be, to secure few votes?!

Mitt Romney has thrown in the ever-favourite subject for an aspiring Republican candidate – hints of war against yet another sovereign nation, Iran.

Romney, while in UK few days ago, has earned the displeasure of UK newspapers, politicians and common public. Media, public, politicians and common man all hate the same person! A nice achievement, which not so many can aspire for – that too within 24 hours of arrival!

Romneyshambles is still making waves in UK newspapers, radio/TV media and social-sites. Hence he had to do the “right” thing to canvass those voters back in USA who might still be unsure whom to vote for.

What were Romney’s words at Israel? He said that his country has a “moral imperative” to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

US has “moral imperative” to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons!  Let us ask Mr. Romney few simple, straight-forward questions here:

  • Were in this whole world was the first nuclear weapon designed?
  • Which country made the first nuclear weapon?
  • Who used it first against another nation, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people?
  • Who still has the largest collection of nuclear weapons?

Answer to all of above questions is – US of A!

Each of the crimes attributed against Iran on nuclear front – design, development and “possible” deployment of nuclear arms – was first committed by none other than USA. The same country, for whom Romney says “has the moral imperative” to stop Iran!

Not only above, Mr Romney in his speech also referred to Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, something the current US administration and most of the international community do not do, given the sensitivity of the issue.

Is Mr. Romney a fool or ignorant at that low-level?  Of course, not!  He has two not-so-hidden agenda:

  • Ensure that the US weapons lobby have no doubt they have the “right” presidential candidate for election run.
  • Secure votes of rich Israeli power groups and guarantee their full-fledged support (financial including).

Let us go back to Iran. What is Iran’s crime? That they want to go ahead with their nuclear programme? Is nuclear programme a privilege available only to the developed, western countries? Iran has already confirmed several times that their nuclear programmes are only for peaceful operations in the country. They even welcomed UN to inspect their nuclear sites.

Even if we agree for argument sake that Iran wants to develop nuclear weapons, what is so “never-ever-before” henious approach in that motive?  Is this item only in agenda of Iran?  How many other countries already have nuclear weapons in their kitty?

Have no doubt. I do not support nuclear weapons. My strong viewpoint is that the world should get rid of all of its nuclear weapons.

But it should be done in a phased manner, with the country with largest collection shedding them first. And not by threatening other nations. […to be continued…]
