Iran Continues Preparations to Defend Itself in Case of Imperialist Attack

AP reports today that:
Iran said Wednesday it has successfully test-fired a "top secret" missile, the third within a week, state-run television reported.

The report called the missile an "ultra-horizon" weapon and said it could be fired from all military helicopters and jet fighters.
Unlike the 'peace' movement that mobilized throughout the West in opposition to Uncle Sam's attack on Iraq, in the case of Iran these groups - in particular the pro-occupation MoveOn.org and United for Peace and Justice - have remained notably silent. Their quiescence in the face of Uncle Sam's $75,000,000 PsyOp onslaught has created a sense of inevitabilty on Sam's Plantation that its Jackboots will attack Iran.

Iran's wargaming over the past week has blunted that feeling, putting the ingenuity of the Persian people and their ability to withstand and defend themselves against the pending sneak attack on display for the world to see.

With these exercises, Iran has called Uncle Sam's bluff. Two months ago President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that Iran's enemies "cannot do a damn thing" to prevent them from developing nuclear technology. In the same speech, he addressed those enemies - chief among them Uncle Sam and Apartheid Israel - directly: "We do not need you at all. It is you, who need the Iranian people."

Clearly Iran has learned the lesson of history. Its leadership knows that in 1953 the CIA organized and carried out a coup in Iran, overthrowing the democractically elected Premier, Mohammad Mossadeq, after he nationalized Iran's oil. The coupsters then undemocratically replaced him with the Shah, who they armed to the teeth.

Ironically, because the Shah and his secret police proved ruthless agents of Western imperialism, Uncle Sam even helped the Shah's Iran develop a nuclear weapons program.

Iran finds itself locked into a situation where they must either cower and retreat or stand up to the savage beast of Empire - they do not have the luxury of a middle-ground. While some liberal 'peace' activists may disagree, the fact remains that Iran's recent wargame has done more to avert an attack from Uncle Sam, NATO, and Apartheid Israel than anything they could cobble together even if they really desired 'peace'.

The hypocrisy of the white liberal 'peace' movement on Iran shows that those oppressed by the ruthless boot of imperialsm cannot rely those who act as the soft-imperialist 'yin' to the hardline 'yang' of Uncle Sam's corrupt ruling order. As has occurred in Iraq, they must mount a defense of their own. Even if the wargames are met with chagrin from soft imperialists, the ongoing military exercises serve that precise function.
