I watched Obama’s “message”. It was pompous double-standard talk.
Obama accepts that Iran should take its “rightful place in the community of nations”, but adds significantly: “That place cannot be reached through terror or arms.” The measure of Iran’s greatness is not “the capacity to destroy”.
Honestly, what is he expecting? That the Iranian people bow to the US? Knowing that the latter supported Hussein when he went on his murderous rampage to the East, that Washington has ties with the Mujahideen Al-Khalk, that it’s got a couple thousands nuclear bombs, that it’s one of the greatest arms dealer the world has ever seen, that it uses terror on a regular basis?
The argument of “stop enriching uranium because I said so” doesn’t work. Especially not given the American support for the Shah, Israel and its numerous bases encircling Iran.
What? Are you jealous or something?
Excuse me, but if you seriously do not get why that speech was pompous self aggrandizing nonsense…
The US is going to lecture Iran about international relations and the responsible use of nuclear power and military might?
The only nation ever to have dropped the bomb and that has intervened in Iran again and again which lead to millions of dead Iranians is going to lecture a nation that has not started a war for over a century?
The Iran must live up to the US standards?
