“The western media gives the impression that it is the comments of the new Iranian president about Israel and Iran's nuclear program which, in the context of US's "war on terror", are the root cause of the present conflict. However...the anti-Israel and anti-US slogans in Iran were far more radical in the earlier days on the revolution in 1979, in the American hostage crisis 1979-80 and during the 8 year Iran-Iraq war in 1980-88 that Saddam -- with the backing of the west -- waged on Iran.

  
Furthermore, according to all western intelligence Iran is at least several years away from being able to develop a nuclear weapon capability even if it does decide to follow this path, for which there is no evidence at all. Thus none of the propaganda in the western media can possibly…justify threats of sanctions and the option of military intervention.

 

We need to see the underlying reasons for the situation elsewhere.”

-- Prof. Edalat
