New Study of Napoleon Highlights Ramifications for the 21st Century
Former French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte -- Napoleon I -- in exile on Elba, blaming Talleyrand and Fouche for his predicament, said: "If I had hanged Talleyrand and Fouche, I would have been still today on the throne." When the news reached Talleyrand, he said: "Napoleon, instead of of hanging me, should have listened to me."

KERRY's FOREIGN POLICY
" A Kerry administration would abandon Bush's commitment to promoting democracy, including by military pressure and/or action. Instead, the US will adopt the "soft power" method, using public diplomacy, battle of ideas, education, development aid, and human rights. (Here, the document echoes themes developed by Carter in 1976 .) This takes us back to detente during the Cold War in which preserving the status quo was more important than reshaping the world on the basis of democratic ideals. "

"The United States must in the long run maintain and expand its global presence through decency, fair play with real respect and compassion for the people of these nations. With Iran especially, the United States does have a debt of decency. Consider Eisenhower's CIA backed coup to eliminate democracy in Iran (1952); Or Carter's active assistance in the demise of the Shah and promotion of Islamic militants (1979). Or even Reagan's back room deals with the same Islamic militants to swing them against Carter and delay the release of the hostages to win the 1980 presidential elections. And the subsequent arm sales to both sides extending the Iran-Iraq war resulting in 1 Million deaths and injured."

HAPPY 4th OF JULY - LET FREEDOM REIGN!
[Words of support and unity from the blogosphere!]


President Bush Slams Mullahs!
(TIME TO DEFEND THE IRANIAN PEOPLE IN THEIR FIGHT AGAINST FANATICISM)

"We see the struggle in Iran, where tired, discredited autocrats are trying to hold back the democratic will of a rising generation"
[George W. Bush]


The Fears of the Terror Masters
"If we want a peaceful Iraq we will have to confront the mullahs...Just as in the case of terrorism, if you want to win the war against the world's leading executioners, you must fight for the spread of freedom."
[American Scholar - Dr. Michael Ledeen]



My Fellow Iranians..
"The anniversary of the 18 Tir, the Iranian Students National Uprising, is once again upon us. The 18th of Tir (July 8th) has become a symbolic struggle and resistance against the tyrannical, totalitarian and barbaric regime of the Islamic Republic. Our very brave and courageous freedom lovers have been challenging the very fabric of the foreign occupiers of the Iranian nation. Iranian people have demanded a total annihilation of this Totalitarian State of Islamic Barbarity and Terror, which lacks even the most basic human compassion and human rights."
[Amil Imani]


Iran's Summer Persecution
"As the anniversary of the anti-government uprising of July 1999 approaches, widespread arrests of students and women are taking place. Some students are nabbed from their dormitories by plainclothes Revolutionary Guard agents, while many others are served arrest warrants."
[Nir Boms and Reza Bulorchi]


THE MULLAHS ARE ABUSING, RAPING & SELLING IRANIAN FEMALES (Young Girls)!
"In Iran for 25 years, the ruling mullahs have enforced humiliating and sadistic rules and punishments on women and girls, enslaving them in a gender apartheid system of segregation, forced veiling, second-class status, lashing and stoning to death."
[Donna M. Hughes]


Human Rights Crisis in Iran
"'The European Union's weak response to continuing human rights violations in Iran is deeply disturbing," said Whitson, "It's time for the European Union to condemn Iran's record of persecution and torture and to set real benchmarks that the government must meet.' Human Rights Watch called on the Iranian government to release all political prisoners and effectively prohibit torture immediately."
[Human Rights Watch]


Mullahs' Reign Of Terror in Iran
"There are several reasons for their (Mullahs) longevity. Iran's geography, its oil and natural gas resources, and the European Union's policy of engagement are among them. In this article, however, my focus is on the main factor: the unbridled, systematic, and highly organized suppression of Iranian citizens and dissidents. Iran's democracy movement must bring this structure of terror down before genuine change can be realized."
[Roya Johnson - American Thinker]


What Can I Do?(It's the West's soft power we need)
"We need your soft power, and all of it. We need it in a barrage of heavy-media artillery, think-tank platforms, and the solidarity of Western NGOs. We need U.S. and EU campus events with young Iranians "yearning for freedom" standing hand in hand with Western students. We need Western artists lending their music and their voices to the Joyless Generation."

Iran's May 2004 Human Rights Violations!
"A group of Iranian boys and girls will be sold in an auction today in Fojeyreh, United Arab Emirates."

Thousands arrested in Iran!
"It's to note that the Islamic regime uses often false labels, such as, "Drug Trafficker", "Spy", "Rapist", "Hooligan" or "Bandit" in order to qualify its opponents. Such policy helps the UN and the Mullahs' European and Japanese Collaborators to justify the continuation of their relations with a repressive and terrorist regime vis a vis their public opinions."


UK has no problem continuing and building ties with the Murderous Mullahs!
"The British government has taken a different view with American government over the relationship with Iran. We believe we ought to have in a process of engagement, frank discussion; some of it is pretty robust," Symons said.

No Way Out!
"Wake-up Call: Iran is at war with us.."
[American Scholar, Dr. Michael Ledeen]


THE MURDEROUS MULLAHS!!
"'The apple is ripe and ready to fall - and, if the Americans and the British don't help us to shake the tree, I can assure you that they won't get any slice of the economic action after the regime falls!'. We have been duly warned."
[Ann Leslie]


Keep Out of Iran So Long as The Mullahs Reign..
"Britain is widely hated in the Middle East and is seen as the principal architects of all the misery in the region, including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and puppet sheikdoms in the Persian Gulf. Today, after failure, the British are trying to leverage the United States' vast resources to achieve their own strategic goals.."
[Jalil Bahar]


Give The Youth A Chance
"Any political movement that aims to overturn the power and machinery of a State requires united perseverance, strong leadership, hopeful determination and adequate resources. Resources are the intellectual capabilities and mental stamina of the group coupled with expertise, experience and connections and fortified by financial strength. The former is vested in the young patriots, while the latter relies upon the elders. The ultimate success of this movement is dependent on this formula."
[Shahla Samii]


Our message: Cooperate or face the consequences.
"The Iranian mullahs' support for terrorism, their repression of their own people who so obviously yearn to be free, and their appalling human rights record are reasons enough to change the regime. Their ambitious nuclear weapons program makes regime change in Iran more than desirable; it makes it necessary -- now. And to achieve that, we should deploy every lever we have -- diplomatic, economic, and even military -- until we get the necessary result.."
[McInerney & Vallely]


Prevailing Principles
"Britain's effete diplomats are wrong. Their belief that Muslim countries should not be held to basic human-rights standards is racist."
[Michael Rubin]


The Summer of Discontent Looming in Iran
Iran's democracy movement offers the only chance for real change in Iran through peaceful means. The United States' security concerns could only be alleviated if and when the rule of law and democracy prevail in Iran. We should, therefore, give priority to efforts aimed at ensuring respect for the human rights of Iran's citizens and Iranian dissidents striving to establish secular and representative governance in that country.
[US Alliance for Democratic Iran]

"Unfortunately, it is illusory to think that the change in Muslim societies will come from within, alone. Four interrelated factors are hindering a successful internal and autonomous change: oriental despotism, the rentier economy, the domination of Islam, and external interventionism. These elements constitute a Gordian knot which can only be cut off by Alexander's sword. The USA's intervention in both Afghanistan and Iraq must be understood as an imperative chirurgical intervention to break this vicious chain."

" The United States has now the historic opportunity to side with the millions in Iran in their call for a United Nations supervised referendum as the last peaceful recourse to regime change in Iran."
[Alireza Jafarzadeh]


The Mullah's New Draconian Agenda
" Nevertheless, far from being a thorn on the side of the regime (as he is portrayed by the Western media) Khatami has a proven record of commitment to the preservation of the country's dictatorial system. He himself is a full member, as it were, of the theocratic ruling club. This ruling club is now panic-stricken about losing its grip on the country."
[Iran va Jahan]


Royal Gift To The Ayatollah (ISLAMIC MAFIA CLERICS)!
"After all, one of the key themes in the mullahs' attempts to demoralise the Iranian opposition has been that the West talks big about freedom, but that when the chips are down, democracy is the least of its concerns. The regime asserts that the Europeans, in particular, will do business with whoever is in power in Teheran. As of today, it is hard to disagree with the Islamists' cynical analysis."

[Winds Of Change.net]


Islamic Clerical Regime 'Has Secret Atomic Bomb Project'
"But the presence of US troops either side of Iran - in Iraq and Afghanistan - is a reminder to the regime that Washington retains the declared option of "pre-emptive" military action. Clear-cut proof of a secret nuclear weapons programme in Iran would be an acute embarrassment for Jack Straw, the Foreign Secretary, who has invested heavily in "engagement" with the clerical regime."
[telegraph.co.uk]


Proof That Islamic Regime in Iran Backed Terrorism
"As the war on terror progresses, the Bush administration is seeking to put pressure on hard-line clerics in Iran, deter their use of terror, stop weapons of mass destruction and encourage pro-democracy forces - at least, that is what the president says. But the message sent by the repeal of the Flatow amendment, and by the refusal of the State Department to back up the president's promise to support the pro-democracy movement in Iran, suggests a policy process the president does not control, say former National Security Council officials.."

"The so-called "reformers" do not propose to reform anything. They are not asking for the Guardians Council to be abolished.

How to Deal with Iran's Mullahs? Recall Reagan
"Without a free press, a democracy would wither and die; with a free press a dictatorship would crumble. In the annals of history, no dictatorship has survived the onslaught of a free press. The newspapers that have been shut down and the journalists and students who have been imprisoned and routinely tortured seek a civil, democratic society based on the ideals of peace, equality, justice, transparency and a genuine representative government."

Iran: A "Sort" of Democracy
"Even if the Council of Guardians allows all the so-called "reformists" to stand as candidates the forthcoming election would still be far from democratic. The reason is that no one who is not a Khomeinist of one sort or another is allowed to stand for election to anything."

Out of Misery, Hope
Lastly, Mr. President, please do not forget that what you and your allied forces have begun in Iraq and Afghanistan can only bear fruit if the Iranian problem is solved.

Allow us to make this plague the last to afflict the Iranians; allow us to make 2004 the year of Iran's liberation.

Let My Father Go!
The United Nations has become nothing more than a tool for the festering European coterie of imperialists who fancy themselves to be the arbiters of propriety. But what propriety? The Europeans may pride themselves on their intellectual heritage, but a continent whose citizens often loathe each other from country to country and who does not practice what it preaches is nothing more than duplicitous.
