    I remember Muhammed Ali's straightforward statement about why we should not die over someone elses foolishness, and imperialism, now the things that led to the war in Iraq seem to be happening to Iran,
    and still as before, based on lies


    Obama Signs New Iran Sanctions into Law
    Later in the day, President Obama signed into law what the White House has billed the harshest U.S. sanctions against Iran to date.

    President Obama: "With these sanctions- along with others- we are striking at the heart of the Iranian government’s ability to fund and develop its nuclear programs. We are showing the Iranian government that its actions have consequences. And if it persists, the pressure will continue to mount, and its isolation will continue to deepen. There should be no doubt: the United States and the international community are determined to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons."

    The new sanctions target companies supplying Iran with gasoline as well as banking firms tied to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard or its nuclear program. They come on top of the sanctions approved by the United Nations Security Council last month.

    Dangerous Crossroads in World History: Obama’s New Iran Sanctions: An Act of War


    By Shamus Cooke

    Global Research, July 3, 2010


    When the UN refused to agree to the severe sanctions that the U.S. wanted, Obama responded with typical Bush flair and went solo. The new U.S. sanctions against Iran — signed into law by Obama on July 1st — are an unmistakable act of war.


    If fully enforced, Iran’s economy will be potentially destroyed. The New York Times outlines the central parts of the sanctions:


    “The law signed by Mr. Obama imposes penalties on foreign entities that sell refined petroleum to Iran or assist Iran with its domestic refining capacity. It also requires that American and foreign businesses that seek contracts with the United States government certify that they do not engage in prohibited business with Iran.” (July 1, 2010).


    Iran must import a large part of its refined oil from foreign corporations and nations, since it does not have the technology needed to refine all the fuel that it pumps from its soil. By cutting this refined oil off, the U.S. will be causing massive, irreparable damage to the Iranian economy — equaling an act of war.


    In fact, war against Japan in WWII was sparked by very similar circumstances. Franklin Delano Roosevelt spearheaded a series of sanctions against Japan, which included the Export Control Act, giving the President the power to prohibit the export of a variety of materials to Japan, including oil. This gave Roosevelt the legal stance he needed to implement an oil embargo, an obvious act of war. Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor simply brought the war out of the economic realm into the military sphere.


    Iran is facing the exact same situation. Whereas the Obama Administration calmly portrays economic sanctions as “peaceful” solutions to political problems, they are anything but. The strategy here is to economically attack Iran until it responds militarily, giving the U.S. a fake moral high ground to “defend” itself, since the other side supposedly attacked first.


    But the U.S. is provoking militarily too. According to the New York Times: “The Obama administration is accelerating the deployment of new defenses against possible Iranian missile attacks in the Persian Gulf, placing special ships [war ships] off the Iranian coast and antimissile systems in at least four [surrounding] Arab countries, according to administration and military officials.” (January 30, 2010).


    The same article mentions that U.S. General Petraeus admitted that, “… the United States was now keeping Aegis cruisers on patrol in the Persian Gulf [Iran’s border] at all times. Those cruisers are equipped with advanced radar and antimissile systems designed to intercept medium-range missiles.” Iran, as well as the whole world, knows full well that “antimissile systems” are perfectly capable of going on the offensive — their real purpose.

    Iran is completely surrounded by countries occupied by the U.S. military, whether it be the mass occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan, or the U.S. puppet states that house U.S. military bases in Arab nations (not to mention Zionist Israel, a U.S. cohort in its war aims against Iran). Contrary to the statements of President Obama, Iran is already well contained militarily.


    It remains to be seen how closely U.S. allies will follow the new oil sanctions; they will be under tremendous pressure to do so. The European Union has already signaled that it will follow Obama’s lead.

    Obama: No Options off the Table with Iran

    The explosion at an ammunition depot west of Tehran occurred just days days after the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency released a report raising new concerns over what it calls "possible military dimensions" to Iran’s nuclear activities. On Sunday, President Obama warned that no options are being taken off the table concerning Iran.

    President Barack Obama: "The sanctions have enormous bite and enormous scope. And we’re building off the platform that has already been established. The question is, are there additional measures that we can take? And we’re going to explore every avenue to see if we can solve this issue diplomatically. I have said repeatedly, and I will say it today: We are not taking any options off the table."​

    No Iranian or other Arab may call you the N-word ...

    They will call you "abd" (slave).

    The thing is Iranians are Persian not Arab. Their native language is Farsi, not Arabic (but they just may have another name to call us).

    But now it seems that there is a whole generation that does not remember what Muhammed Ali said

    and why he said it, or the fact that white supremists were brainwashing Black folks to support the Vietnam war by lieing and saying "those gooks are calling you boys "Ns""

    Now it seems that the propaganda is now working for Persian colonization as well and to get us to support this zionist madness and another war;

    And it seems as though the Grassroots, 48 years after Malcolm's message to them, are saying the hell with his Message

    In Bandung back in, I think, 1954, was the first unity meeting in centuries of black people. And once you study what happened at the Bandung conference, and the results of the Bandung conference, it actually serves as a model for the same procedure you and I can use to get our problems solved. At Bandung all the nations came together. Their were dark nations from Africa and Asia. Some of them were Buddhists.
    Some of them were Muslim. Some of them were Christians. Some of them were Confucianists; some were atheists. Despite their religious differences, they came together. Some were communists; some were socialists; some were capitalists. Despite their economic and political differences, they came together. All of them were black, brown, red, or yellow.
    The number-one thing that was not allowed to attend the Bandung conference was the white man. He couldn't come
    . Once they excluded the white man, they found that they could get together. Once they kept him out, everybody else fell right in and fell in line. This is the thing that you and I have to understand. And these people who came together didn't have nuclear weapons; they didn't have jet planes; they didn't have all of the heavy armaments that the white man has. But they had unity.

    Interesting how people can get trapped into supporting Imperialism, and excuses to fight white supremist wars by forgetting or rejecting history

    "History is a clock people use to tell their historical culture and political time of the day. It's a compass that people use to find themselves on the map of human geography. The history tells them where they have been, where they are and what they are. But most importantly history tells a people where they still must go and what they still must be"
