The Guardian yesterday published an interesting debate between Abbas Edalat – an Iranian anti-war activist – and the former Conservative Foreign Secretary, Malcolm Rifkind.
Rifkind appeared very eager for the Iranian government to be brought to heel and characterised it as a spreader of destabilisation in the region. Edalat, on the other hand, pointed out that Iran has not invaded another country in over 250 years, while the real invaders and aggressors are to be found somewhat closer to the capital cities of the USA, the UK and Israel.
Unfortunately, it does seem that a covert war against Iran is already underway. Recent months have seen the assassination of a number of Iranian scientists and some mysterious explosions at Iranian military sites.
Just when you thought that our ever-so-civilised Western leaders had seen enough innocent blood shed in the Middle East they seem more than ready to spill even more in support of the terrorist Israeli state.
