Iran’s currency, the rial, has been continually plunging, mostly due to western (U.S.) sanctions. These sanctions are brutal, and are an act of aggressive war against Iran. The purpose of the U.S. government sanctions are to specifically harm innocent Iranian citizens. With the value of the Iranian money only 1/3 of what it was a year ago, and down over 60% just this past week, all the people in Iran are suffering; especially concerning the cost of food, a vital necessity.
Many businesses have been forced to close, and in many cases, business owners have lost millions of dollars. With this massive inflation, most all the citizens there are being harmed, and Iranian families are obviously concerned about their future.
One thing most arrogant and apathetic Americans don’t consider, is that these families are little different than their own. They sit down in the evening and share thoughts of the day. Kids go to school, and come home to have dinner with their family. Mothers teach their daughters how to cook, and fathers teach their sons how to play yo yo. The streets are busy, and love and play are evident.
In this case, U.S. sanctions are not meant to destroy the wealthy, but are supposedly meant to curb the non-existent drive to attain a nuclear weapon by Iran; a weapon, I might add, that would serve no country’s interest more than Iran’s due to U.S. and Israeli imperialistic threats. But in reality, the sanctions are intended to inflict great damage upon the common man and his family. The hope of the aggressor nation, in this case the United States, is that the common people will suffer greatly due to economic turmoil and lack of life’s necessities, including proper medical care, thus causing civil unrest and chaos. This scenario is already taking shape.
“The U.S. government has stated that it sees the rial’s plunge as proof Western sanctions are having a big impact on the Islamic republic’s economy.”
Obviously, the U.S. government is pleased that it is causing so much harm to a nation and people that have not attacked any country in over 200 years. The uncontrollable laughter by Hillary Clinton and James Baker outlined in my earlier post, when they were ecstatic over the prospect of destroying Iran and murdering its people, should serve to expose the callousness of these demonic politicians toward any that do not bow at the alter of the U.S. fascist state.
One day, the tables will be turned. One day, the United States will be the one being aggressively attacked. One day, Americans will be suffering due to a collapsed economy; a collapse caused by the current empirical desires of this country. One day, sanctions could be levied against America, as all empires will eventually fail. One day, we could see massive inflation; our money could literally become worthless overnight. One day American citizens will fear for themselves and their families due to aggression from tyrants; more likely from within than not. One day!
This can only be avoided if and only if the people of this country demand that all U.S. aggression stop immediately, and all wars end. All troops overseas should be brought home, and all foreign military bases should be closed permanently. The government will have to be stopped in its tracks from continuing these heinous policies, and its power eliminated. Most government agencies, including the Federal Reserve, should be abolished.
These things and more must happen if we are to avoid in the future the same consequences that have befallen all those who have been, and are being brutalized by the U.S. government and its military. Little time is left before the worm turns!
