Bush brands Iran leader a ‘tyrant’

WASHINGTON, Sept 5 (AFP) Sep 05, 2006
US President George W. Bush on Tuesday branded Iran’s president a tyrant and compared leaders in Tehran to Al-Qaeda terrorists who cannot be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons.

“America will not bow down to tyrants,” he said in the second of a series of election-year speeches defending his handling of the war on terrorism and Iraq. “The world’s free nations will not allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon.”

Bush accused Iran of funding the Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah and other groups “to attack Israel and America by proxy” and said Hezbollah was second only to Al-Qaeda in the number of US citizens it has killed.

“Like Al-Qaeda and the Sunni extremists, the Iranian regime has clear aims. They want to drive America out of the region, to destroy Israel, and to dominate the broader Middle East,” said the US presidents.

But, he said, Shiite extremists have done something Al-Qaeda only dreams of by taking over Iran in 1979, “subjugating its proud people to a regime of tyranny and using that nation’s resources to fund the spread of terror and to pursue their radical agenda.”

“The Iranian regime and its terrorist proxies have demonstrated their willingness to kill Americans, and now the Iranian regime is pursuing nuclear weapons,” said Bush.

The US president quoted Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as saying, in an August 15 speech, “If you would like to have good relations with the Iranian nation in the future, bow down before the greatness of the Iranian nation and surrender.”

“If you don’t accept to do this, the Iranian nation will force you to surrender and bow down,” he quoted the Iranian leader as saying.

“America will not bow down to tyrants,” he replied.

Yes indeed. More of the same inverted speech that we have come to know and love from The Great Satan. Lest we forget, lets look yet again at why there is an Islamic regime in Iran, and just who precisely is responsible for putting one there:

Operation Ajax (1953) (officially TP-AJAX) was a covert operation by the United Kingdom and the United States to remove the nationalist[1] cabinet of Iranian Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh from power, to support the Pahlavi dynasty and consolidate the power of Mohammed Reza Pahlavi. The idea of overthrowing Mossadegh was conceived by the British. They originally asked President Truman for assistance, but he refused. When Eisenhower became president in 1953, the British proposed the idea once again, and this time, the Americans agreed to help.

Rationale for the intervention included Mossadeghs socialist political views and his nationalization, without compensation, of the oil industry which was previously operated by the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (which later changed its name to The British Petroleum Company) under contracts disputed by the nationalists as unfair. A particular point of contention was the refusal of the Anglo-Iranian Oil company to allow an audit of the accounts to determine whether the Iranian government received the royalties it was due. Intransigence on the part of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company led the nationalist government to escalate its demands, requiring an equal share in the oil revenues. The final crisis was precipitated when the oil company ceased operations in Iran rather than accepting the Iranian government’s demands.

The newly state-owned oil companies saw a dramatic drop in productivity and, consequently, exports; this resulted in the Abadan Crisis, a situation that was further aggravated by its export markets being closed. Even so royalties to the Iranian government were significantly higher than before nationalization. Without its own distribution network it was denied access to markets by an international blockade intended to coerce Mossadegh into reprivatization. In addition, the appropriation of the companies resulted in Western allegations that Mossadegh was a Communist and suspicions that Iran was in danger of falling under the influences of the neighboring Soviet Union. But Mossadegh refused to back down under international pressure.

For the U.S., an important factor to consider was Irans border with the Soviet Union. A pro-American Iran under the Shah would give the U.S. a double strategic advantage in the ensuing Cold War, as a NATO alliance was already in effect with the government of Turkey, also bordering the USSR.

In planning the operation, the CIA organized a guerrilla force in case the communist Tudeh Party seized power as a result of the chaos created by Operation Ajax. According to formerly Top Secret documents released by the National Security Archive, Undersecretary of State Walter Bedell Smith reported that the CIA had reached an agreement with Qashqai tribal leaders in southern Iran to establish a clandestine safe haven from which U.S.-funded guerrillas and intelligence agents could operate.

Operation Ajax was the first time the Central Intelligence Agency was involved in a plot to overthrow a democratically-elected government. The success of this operation, and its relatively low cost, encouraged the CIA to successfully carry out a similar operation in Guatemala a year later.

Widespread dissatisfaction with the oppressive regime of the reinstalled Shah led to the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran and the occupation of the U.S. embassy. The role that the U.S. embassy had played in the 1953 coup led the revolutionary guards to suspect that it might be used to play a similar role in suppressing the revolution.

The leader of Operation Ajax was Kermit Roosevelt, Jr., a senior CIA agent, and grandson of the former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt. While formal leadership was vested in Kermit Roosevelt, the project was designed and executed by Donald Wilber, a career contract CIA agent and acclaimed author of books on Iran, Afghanistan and Ceylon.

As a condition of restoring the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, the U.S. was able to dictate that the AIOCs oil monopoly should lapse. Five major U.S. oil companies, plus Royal Dutch Shell and French Compagnie Franaise des Ptroles were given licences to operate in the country alongside AIOC.

Operation AJAX

Now, look at the text properly inverted to show what it REALLY should say:

TEHRAN, Sept 5 (AFP) Sep 05, 2006
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday branded America’s president a tyrant and compared leaders in Washington to Al-Qaeda terrorists who should not be allowed to posess nuclear weapons.

“Iran will not bow down to tyrants,” he said in the second of a series of election-year speeches defending his position on the ‘war on terrorism’ and Iraq. “The world’s free nations should not allow America to posess a nuclear weapon.”

Ahmadinejad accused America of funding the Israel government and other groups “to attack the Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah by proxy” and said America was second only to Al-Qaeda in the number of US citizens it has killed.

“Like Ohlmert and the Israeli extremists, the American regime has clear aims. They want to remove democracy from the region, to destroy Iran, and to dominate the broader Middle East,” said the Iranian president.

But, he said, Americans have done something Al-Qaeda only dreams of by taking over Iraq, “subjugating its proud people to a regime of tyranny and using that nation’s resources to fund the spread of terror and to pursue their radical agenda.”

“The American regime and its terrorist proxies have demonstrated their willingness to kill Iraqis, and now the American regime is pursuing our nuclear weapons,” said Ahmadinejad.

The Iranian president quoted American president Bush as saying, in an August 15 speech, “If you would like to have good relations with the Amercan (sic) nation in the future, bow down before the greatness of the American nation and surrender.”

“If you don’t accept to do this, the American nation will force you to surrender and bow down,” he quoted the American leader as saying.

“Iran will not bow down to tyrants,” he replied.

And there you have it. Not difficult to do, and certainly not as difficult as a W.S. Burroughs cut up where you can, “find out what it REALLY says”.

And now, from the IHT:

Some Americans didn’t support my decision to remove Saddam Hussein. Many are frustrated with the level of violence. But we should all agree that the battle for Iraq is now central to the ideological struggle of the 21st century. We will not allow the terrorists to dictate the future of this century, so we will defeat them in Iraq. […]

And when we multiply by 1/x:

The question is, can YOU multiply that by 1/x?
