The G-8 held negotiations in Canada on new round of sanctions against Iran to stop its uranium enrichment ambitions last week. Agreements and progressions were reached among the eight industrial nations of the world regarding fresh measures against Iran, officials involved in talks said. Of course, what the negotiation results will accomplish, taking into consideration that the past eight years have only bought Iran time to inch closer to the bomb, is something time has to tell. In today’s world, political and security crises have different roots.
Once again the world witnessed the Iranian peoples’ determination to achieve freedom.
Today, the last Friday of Ramadan, known as ‘Quds Day’ in Iran, a day historically associated with Iranian extremists. For thirty years the ruling mullahs’ regime in Iran his used this day’s Friday cermone to campaign against Israel and justify the presence of its war and terror machine throughout the Middle East.
But this time in Tehran, Tabriz, Shiraz, Isfahan, and other cities, the Quds day events took a new turn.
Today, the Iranian people marched the streets chanting that neither Israel nor Palestine is their concern but what they care about is their own country, Iran and its freedom.
From the early hours this morning large crowds of people gathered in streets in many cities of Iran defying Basijies and Revolutionary Guards forces who tried to stop them from demonstrating.
Many clashes between the crowd and security forces have been reported and some demonstrators were arrested.
The March 7 parliamentary elections have heralded a new era for Iraq, pushing aside the incumbent Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki and officials with ties to Iran while opening way for a new slate of politicians hoping to mend serious sectarian divides. But, as a U.S. military official in Iraq told the Washington Post, Maliki and his allies "have no intention of giving up their regime," something that could threaten the hard earned post-election gains for progress and stability and harm US troops withdrawal timetable.
