Prove Ahmadinejad Wrong – How?


Image by mashleymorgan via Flickr

It’s really very simple.  And, it’s something that millions of Americans have been asking for, for a very long time.  Conduct an independent, non-partisan, impartial investigation of the events of 9/11/2001.

They did not treat the World Trade Center, or the Pentagon, or Shanksville PA as they should have – as a CRIME SCENE.  No.  President Bush and Co. decided it was much better to DECLARE WAR on the “systematic use of terror as a policy” in order to forego what is expected in a modern democratic society.

The “investigations” – if you can honestly call them that – that they did do were far from independent.  They ignored many questions, and did not adequately answer many others.  And, even these “investigations” were done under duress.

Instead of relying on the hollow rhetoric of Ahmadinejad’s  remarks being “inexcusable”, “offensive”, and “hateful” –  and walking out on his speech in a gesture of mock outrage – why not prove him wrong?

Maybe . . . because they can’t?  It’s more likely that they just can’t afford for him to be proven correct.

    Yes, this may be true. However, we mustn’t forget that the Extremist fanatics hardly wish us well, and whether it’s understandable or not, Iran is in a very difficult situation now as a result of Ahmandinajads statement whether justified or not. It was reckless to have said this publicly in view of the number of people who’d love for our military to take them out. I don’t want to see that happen. I have a particular liking for a number of Iranians I’ve known in this country, and happen to know they would like for us to rescue them from this backward regime. But we all know from experience in Iraq and Afghanistan how destructive that would be for the Iranian people. I don’t think I could bear another blood bath in another middle eastern country. The reality is that Obama is not just dealing with the Iranians alone, he is also dealing with the pressure from Israel, pressure from the military Industrial complex, and all the hawks and greedy corporations in the republican sector who thrive on war.

    I think we should keep a very low profile regarding pressure from this 9/11 sector right now. There are many who would like to take us out too, and that is also a reality. I was disappointed in his statement. I think, however, he was caught off guard. I think he could have simply said, that as far as the Iranians are concerned, they need to deal with their own complicency as concerns 9/11. and the issues currently before us.

    Diplomacy exists for the purpose of defusing hot and dangerous issues. In ignoring that traditional safeguard and in making the statement he made in his address before the U.N. (the whole world), he made a huge diplomatic blunder. So, in fact, his behavior was despicable. That conversation, if appropriate at all belonged in private talks between Obama and himself. And whether or not we let the attacks occur, they were carried out by middle eastern religious zealots and terrorists. Under the circumstances, Ahmandinajad had no right since Iranian leadership complicancy had bloodied their own hands by the mere fact of the pleasure they felt that such a disaster had happened in the U.S.

    That particular segment of the extremists in the muslim nations that hate us so much is as bad as our war mongering Hawks in this country. These two may deserve each other, but not at the cost of millions of innocent lives.

    Obama is looking at a far more complicated picture of the world than we’re able to witness.I believe we have to stand back, and hope he will be able to navigate around this confrontation.

    I don’t believe it was reckless. I think it was calculated. He’s not just a shrimpy little, scruffy faced guy in a permanent windbreaker. Like his opinions, or not, this man does have a lot on the ball. In light of everything that has been going on lately, he realizes that he’s very limited in terms of diplomatic bargaining chips, and that sometimes the “Don’t tase me, bro!” approach is ultimately *safer* than suffering in silence.

    I couldn’t care less if he laid the blame on Mother Teresa, Santa Claus and Mom’s Apple Pie. If it would shake this country out of its stupor, and force us into conducting a truly independent, non-partisan, impartial investigation – with public oversight – into the events of 9/11/2001 – including various intel and events that lead up to it – then it would be worth it.

    I’m sick of being treated like the proverbial mushroom. I’m not so naive that I think that complete transparency is a possibility at this level, but this goes way beyond our leaders, supposedly, knowing *what’s best for us*.

    I totally agree with you, and am content that you will continue to push for that. My only reservation is in the explosive nature of things in Israel and Palestine. these negotiations are once again compromised by Israels returning to building once again on one of the areas in question. The Israeli launching of a so called shipment of supplies to Gaza is probably an attempt to stop or in the very least upstage the International peace activists flotilla of ships from many countries planned to be launched shortly with their deliverance of essential food supplies and building materials in support of the Palestinians. I feel certain that the International flotilla will go as planned unless there is an obvious and dangerous confrontation over this. Even so, I’ve a feeling the peace people are prepared for anything, and would lay their lives on the line for the success of this mission if necessary.

    Yes, I know. I’m off issue, as usual. there are so many of them… you know… issues ! ! !

    And my friend, you are anything but a mushroom.

    Relevant detours are always welcome, ma’am! I’m very disappointed that Israel has decided to end the moratorium on building in the West Bank. This demonstration of bad faith can only produce a negative outcome. This could be the “set-up” for the big one. I sincerely hope they reconsider, or the U.N. and or U.S. – somehow – intervenes.

    . . . but, I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    If the last ten years of bloodshed isn’t enough to drive home the fact that absolutely nothing can be solved through violence, I don’t know what is.

    How can we get them to just stop?

    You know, I think the answer is demonstrated in a local one, such as the dominance of Jewish membership in the Ramapo public School board. there is a problem in the thinking of someone who gets himself elected to a board in their district, but doesn’t believe in putting his children in public schools. That shouldn’t be allowed. Particularly when one of the public schools in the area is encouraged by the board to sell, and sold to a Yeshiva for such a bargain price. Conflict of interest… don’t you think ?

    I think School board members should be elected out of parents of past or future students of that school district, for purpose of ensuring proper interest and the betterment of the schools under that Board.

    I can’t imagine that the Jewish Ramapo Board members would think it proper for a parent from a public system to sit on their Yeshiva Board if that parents child was not currently in attendance or wouldn’t someday be in attendance, or had never been in attendance in the past, or if that parent was not Jewish, and had no interest in Yeshivas.

    The voters should have been made up of the active , past or future parents of children who attend the school, not a vote from a general population that is predominantly wedded to another school preference other than a Public education.

    My thought is, that if we can solve that problem here, perhaps there’s hope to shape a different attitude in Israel.
