Conquering Iran a dream or reality

In the dieing days of his presidency George Bush and his cronies are trying to beat up propaganda against Iran. Xenophobia and Islamophobia are the real motives behind this propaganda. Whenever, a non-Western country tries to acquire advanced technology the West starts crying.

Whether it is China, India, Pakistan or Iran, the West do not want non-Western countries to thrive and become stronger to challenge the Western hegemony. For example, there were many restrictions on India to acquire space or nuclear technology. Same is the case with Pakistan. The West has also tried hard to stop technological advancements in China as well.

The dream of subjugating Iran to accept the Western hegemony is not achievable. The West could not control Hezbollah and Hamas. How it can control Iran? The price to conquer Iran is beyond the West’s imagination.

USA and the West as a whole have not learned their lessons in Iraq and Vietnam. Iranians are eager to teach them the final lesson.


  • While I agree with your argument that the US has remained stubbornly protective of its hegemonic grip to power in many places (Latin America, Iraq, etc.), I disagree with the motives you offer.

    Israel is a valuable US ally, providing the country with intelligence and a military foothold in the region. Attaining nuclear weaponry would level the playing field between Israel and the surrounding, hostile nations.

    The current rhetoric against Iran should be viewed not as a prelude for invasion (why bother now that Iraq has been illegally occupied?), but as a move to maintain the unfair dominance of a military ally.

    Imperialistic moves such as this should be denounced in the strongest possible terms, most especially by the American people ourselves.

    That said, we must take care in issuing threats or embracing violent factions out of anger and frustration, lest we become that which we would fight against.
