I Hope that Peace Will Be Established Between Iran and U.S.

I Hope that Peace Will Be Established Between Iran and U.S.

  Kourosh Ziabari - Iran Review: Although Iran and the United States have not had close diplomatic relations for more than three decades, and despite the fact that the two countries have been at loggerheads over many grievances, academic and cultural exchanges have usually brought the two nations closer together and created opportunities for increased mutual understanding between the two peoples that in spite of their greatness and magnificence, have usually failed to take note of each other’s concerns and sensitivities. It’s possible to remove the acrimonies of the past in the Iran-U.S. relations through constructive and meaningful dialog and negotiations. Academicians, scholars, intellectuals and media people can play...

Global Capitalism Is In the Midst of Its Most Severe Crisis

Kourosh Ziabari - Fars News Agency: Prominent American sociologist Prof. William I. Robinson believes that the United States government is the biggest perpetrator of terror in the world and its military adventures across the globe have claimed the lives of millions of innocent citizens. According to Prof. William I. Robinson, “if we define terrorism as the use of violence against civilians for political objectives, then the US state is the world’s leading terrorist.” “US intervention abroad in the 20th century – the forging of a US empire - claimed tens of millions of victims, inflicted untold suffering, and set back the aspirations of freedom and democracy in dozens of countries,” said Prof. Robinson in an exclusive...

My exclusive interview with FBI whistleblower Coleen Rowley

Kourosh Ziabari - Fars News Agency: Prominent American peace activist and FBI whistleblower Coleen Rowley believes that the United States is violating the international law by supporting the rebels and terrorists in Syria. According to Coleen Rowley, “the US funding and arming” of the terrorists and insurgents in the crisis-hit Syria “mostly through US’ ties with Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, to help the Syrian opposition fighters topple Assad, are all acts of war and actually also violate international law.” “Even threats to bomb are supposed to be illegal under international law, i.e. under the Kellogg-Briand Treaty, later engrained in the Nuremberg Principle that wars of aggression be considered the ‘supreme...

My exclusive interview with Senator Richard H. Black

Kourosh Ziabari - Iran Review: For more than three years, Syria has been engulfed in a deadly conflict that has so far claimed hundreds of lives and displaced, orphaned and widowed thousands of others. At the outset, there were people who claimed that the unrest in Syria was part of the democratic, revolutionary wave sweeping the Middle East and North Africa known as the Arab Spring, but it’s now clear to everyone, both friends and foes, that the unrest in Syria is a proxy war to which tens of countries are contributing for one end: bringing down the government of President Assad. Syria has now turned into a battlefield for the face-off between the government forces and ordinary people loyal to President Assad and trained...

My exclusive interview with former Italian Foreign Minister Emma Bonino

Kourosh Ziabari - Iran Review: When Emma Bonino visited Iran in December 2013, she was the first European Union foreign minister who would travel to Iran in nearly one decade. Her trip was applauded by those who favored a peaceful settlement of the disputes between Iran and the West over Tehran’s nuclear program, and irked those, including the Israeli regime, who find their interests in the continuation of the conflict and animosity between Iran, the United States and the European Union. Following the resignation of the Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta, President Giorgio Napolitano named Matteo Renzi as the new Prime Minister in February 2014, and the cabinet was reshuffled. As a result, Emma Bonino is not the foreign minister...

The US Wars Are Based on Partial Truths and Outright Lies

The US Wars Are Based on Partial Truths and Outright Lies

Kourosh Ziabari - Fars News Agency: Award-winning American journalist Robert Koehler says the conscious members of media should resist the warmongerings of the conservative politicians and work to promote peace and stability globally. “The idea that a war can be waged justly is the beginning of the problem. Every leader who has an interest in waging a war will, of course, claim that this war is absolutely necessary and absolutely just. That’s how it was a decade ago when the “war on terror” got underway,” said Robert Koehler in an exclusive interview with Fars News Agency. “Forget all those other wars, forget Vietnam. These wars are necessary. And the corporate media always goes along with the present justification,...

Key Evidence Shows the US 2004 Presidential Vote Was Stolen

Key Evidence Shows the US 2004 Presidential Vote Was Stolen

  Kourosh Ziabari - Fars News Agency: A renowned American political scientist and author tells Fars News Agency that there’s ample evidence showing the 2004 presidential election in the United States was fraudulent and stolen by George W. Bush. According to Prof. Robert J. Fitrakis, the Republican Party used all the instruments at its disposal to deceive the American people into believing that George Bush was the real victor, while he was declared the winner of the election thanks to the extensive and widespread cheating and vote-rigging in different US states such as Ohio where numerous irregularities were reported. “In certain black voting precincts, up to 51% of the population had their names removed. When these...
