CIA is the foremost criminal organization in the world

CIA is the foremost criminal organization in the world

Kourosh Ziabari - American journalist and political commentator Sherwood Ross believes that CIA is the world's foremost criminal organization and that the anti-Iranian sanctions of the United States and its European allies are contrary to the principles of human rights. "Iran is one of the world's most peaceful nations. It has not made war on a neighbor in modern times. Its crime is oil. The U.S. overthrow of the elected government of Iran in 1953 came about at the behest of the UK, whose British Petroleum antecedent was driven from the country for cheating the Iranians out of their fair share of the proceeds from the sale of oil," he says. Sherwood Ross is an award-winning journalist who formerly worked for the City News Bureau of...

U.S. Human Rights Policy is Self-serving and Duplicitous

  Kourosh Ziabari - Political commentator and university professor George Katsiaficas believes that the wave of revolutionary uprising which has encompassed the Middle East and North Africa may further implicate the other regions of the world and has already shown its effects in countries such as Gabon, China and even the United States. "The courage of Iranians in 1979, their withstanding of ferocious repression by the Shah and his forces, was evident for people all over the world, and inspired Haitians and Filipinos to overthrow their dictators," says Katsiaficas. George Katsiaficas is a renowned university professor, sociologist, author and activist. He is a visiting American Professor of Humanities and Sociology at Chonnam...

Free Syrian Army targets civilians for supporting the government

Free Syrian Army targets civilians for supporting the government

  Kourosh Ziabari - Almost 18 months after the beginning of unrest and violence in Syria, the Syrian people are waiting for peace and tranquility to once again rule their homeland and their destroyed lives. The Syrian people are embattled in a war which a number of Western powers and regional states have launched against their country, and the only conceivable reason is their resistance against the expansionistic policies of Israel and NATO who want to bring Syria to its knees and turn it into a new ally for the United States in the Arab world. The Western mainstream media have tried to portray the unrest in Syria as a continuation of the Arab Spring and the popular revolutions that swept the Middle East since almost one year...

U.S. decline? America, A Country Controlled by Warmongers

U.S. decline? America, A Country Controlled by Warmongers

  Kourosh Ziabari - Although the United States has been a politically prosperous and economically successful country, it’s becoming difficult for its leaders to continue maintaining what some political analysts call the “military industrial racket” it has been holding throughout the past decades. To study the decline of the U.S. Empire does not mean that one is happy with the fact that the United States is losing its economic and political dominance and power, but it leads us to the understanding that how a country that was once the number one superpower in the world has become an entity that is now in the hands of a small elite of warmongers who are ready to forfeit the national interests of the nation for the sake of...

The U.S. has failed to suppress Iran’s Islamic Revolution

  Kourosh Ziabari - Former Chief of Army Staff of Pakistan Army General Mirza Aslam Beg believes that the people of Iran, despite tolerating the biting impacts of economic sanctions, have successfully withstood the mounting pressures from the United States and its allies and now have reached self-sufficiency and power to determine their destiny. "The sanctions and embargos have caused misery to the people of Iran, particularly on the issue of acquiring Nuclear Technology for peaceful purposes. I reckon that Iran has achieved, what they wanted to, and now they should declare to the world, Come and see, what we have achieved, and how honest we have been in saying that, our quest had been for the nuclear technology for peaceful...

U.S. is allied with and actively supports Al-Qaeda

U.S. is allied with and actively supports Al-Qaeda

  Kourosh Zibari - American political commentator believes that the United States has been constantly allied with Al-Qaeda and supported it militarily and financially. "Major media have recently had to acknowledge that US-NATO interests are aligned with Al Qaeda in Syria, of course overlooking the fact that the US and Sunni States also recruited and armed these soldiers of fortune. What the Obama administration has sought to do with the alleged murder of Bin Laden in May 2011 is to close the chapter on the old, villainous Al Qaeda and open a chapter on the new and friendly Al Qaeda. This narrative is slowly unfolding, while Americans are instructed on a different bogey to fear, which now appears to be homegrown terrorism," he said...

Sanctions are some kind of warfare used by the U.S. and allies

Sanctions are some kind of warfare used by the U.S. and allies

Kourosh Ziabari - American political author says that the United States and its allies impose sanctions against independent nations in order to destabilize those countries, create political chaos there and install puppet regimes which are subservient and obedient to them. “Sanctions are indeed a form of warfare used by the United States and its European satellites. The very purpose is to make the population suffer, so that the people will turn against their own leaders, throw them out, and accept leaders more acceptable to Washington. That has been the purpose of sanctions against Cuba for decades. It was the purpose of sanctions against Serbia and against Iraq,” said Diana Johnstone in an interview with Tehran Times earlier...
