Never in the long history of Iran has a threat had such disastrous potential as the current threat of US attack. In the past when the Greeks, Arabs, Mongols, etc. raided, destroyed, divided the country, there was always the potential for a strong leader to rise up in the future and re-unify the land.
Post US aerial bombardment of Iran (similar to the attack on Serbia) central government will fall and every ethnic group will take their own pound of flesh. The ensuing statelets will be busy squabbling and fighting for generations to come and that's exactly what the US desires.
And the sad thing is that there won't be any possibility to reverse the damage in the future, as the big bullies through the security council will make sure of that.
For those who think, well that's not necessarily a bad thing, I ask if this a good recipe why don't we have a broken up United Kingdom or Switzerland (with united French, German and Italian nationals)? Why is Europe becoming the United States of Europe?
Some may still believe in the US' honourable intentions! They only have to look back at the post WW II history of the world to see that the US has done its damnedest to destroy democracies and prop up dictatorships in the developing world (Middle East, Africa, South and Latin America are all dotted with the US' handiwork's).
I appeal to Iranians of every faith, ethnicity and political background to wake up to this imminent threat and help the British public understand the facts about Iran by engaging with the media and challenging their lies. The British public should understand that there is no evidence of Iran attacking another country within the last two hundred years. Even the current political system with all its shortcomings has not attacked any country during past 28 years. That's more than what can be said about the UK and US within the same period.
