HUMAN first, then a proud IRANIAN

This blog represents the way I see some of the most significant events impacting the world and its citizens. This blog also represents how I react to the events as a member of humanity with a voice, a determined voice that insists to be heard. The voice of an Iranian who loves his country but his priority is humanity; humanity without border. I will say what I want to say, when I want to say it, and how I want to say it, but I will never lie. I will also listen; I promise.

Who pays the price?

Last night, I saw more complete clip from beheading of the young American in Iraq. Almost all night, I could not take the images off my mind. I was walking in between my little children's beds; watching them, touching them and trying to feel how I would feel if what happened to that American, no, to that human being, had happened to my children. I was trying to put myself in the shoes of that guy's father. ...But, I was not able to even imagine that.

While sitting down in front of the Iraqis one of whom was reading a prepared statement in Arabic, not understanding the statement, he didn't even seem to know what was coming in a few minutes. He was sitting quietly and perhaps thinking that they were taking the video shots to tell the Americans that they had him.

Part of the statement was reading:
"For the mothers and wives of American soldiers, we tell you that we offered the US administration to exchange this hostage with some of the detainees in Abu Ghraib and they refused," the statement said.
And in other point the statement said "So we tell you that the dignity of the Muslim men and women in Abu Ghraib and others is not redeemed except by blood and souls. You will not receive anything from us but coffins after coffins and slaughtered in this way,". Read it here. At one point the statement said that this was in revenge of what Americans did to Iraqi prisoners in Abu Ghraib. It also said, "You and your soldiers will regret the day that you touched the ground of Iraq."

After the statement was read he was pushed down, and his head was cut off. You could feel the agony, you could feel the struggle, you could feel that the guy couldn't believe what was happening to him, and could feel how brutal we; human beings, have become.

He was a civilian, not a soldier. According to his family members, he was a pro-war civilian who had gone to Iraq for business opportunities. Whatever he was, at best he was either greedy or desperate for the money, which is up to $1000/day (tax free) or may be he was just plain stupid to be in Iraq, the land he had no business being in. But greedy, desperate or stupid, none of them qualifies anyone to be killed and that should not result in such a horrific end.

Regarding this horrific event, "Dark House" spokesman Scott McClellan said, "This shows the true nature of the enemies of freedom,...We will pursue those responsible and bring them to justice.". My message to this idiot is; Fuck you! What freedom you fucking hypocrite? You don't even know what freedom is. You are even gradually taking the freedom away from your own people. Fuck you and your stupid president and his murderous gang. You and your president never understood what the result of occupation would be. You and your president never understood how one would feel to have his country occupied and his people tortured by foreigners in their own land. You and your president never understood....many things. You never understood, because you didn't need to understand, perhaps because you knew you would continue living your empty but comfortable lives, no matter what. This young guy is dead now, but no, your kids are safe and sound and busy drinking. You won't even go to the washroom without your bodyguards covering your asses. Yeah, it is easy to talk tough. You don't pay the price. Worse comes to worse, you will lose the elections and will not be re-elected. So what? You people are already ultra-rich. You will live like kings, in the "Dark House" or any other mansions of yours. You are no humans. What have you accomplished by this occupation? 13000 Iraqis are dead. Over 700 US soldiers are dead. A country is in ruin and chaos. Religious fundamentalism has grown with an unimaginable rate that otherwise would not have grown if it wasn't because of your policies. You have become the best marketing and recruiting agents for the fundamentalists.

But no, your masters, the big business are happy and that's all that counts to the bastards like you.

No more words for now!
