Just recently it has been revealed that the United States wants to build a Spy Drone base in Australian territory.
The Cocos Islands just north of the mainland are a gorgeous and unique environment with pristine beaches,
tropical settings- a serene quietness and its tiny population mind you are mostly Muslims.
Little is regarded at how the locals would feel
knowing their island paradise is to turn to a noisy base for US spy planes. Australian prime minister Julia Gillard is not
ruling out the opportunity – of course not seeming the brown nosing that woman has done for a certain Obama.
As this is happening lately the United States and Iran have been having sparring matches with each other,
yet one thing that we must make clear is that intimidation wont win you any friends. As much as i love the
American people and many of its values i have to say that the policies in that country are abysmal.
What other nation in the world could get away with harassment, bullying, sheer intimidation and a
crawling sense of threats? When you look at American Bases in the region around Iran it is more than
clear who is intimidating who- maps show the US bases almost circumnavigate the nation.
Americas support for Israel seems to distract it, considering the only actual attacks thus far have
been within Iran- remember when some of its top scientists were recently blown up in their own
countries by what appears to very likely be Israeli Mossad agents? Terror has occurred in Iranian land
already, if such a thing happened in the United States- we would be assured bombs would be falling.
I am over the American superiority complex…look we get it- you are a nation that is proud,
the land of the free and the brave. Yet your foreign policies and intimidation tactics are worrying,
not only are they worrying for the Iraqis, Afghans, Libyans & others- it is worrying for your own nation.
When you see your own protestors taking over the streets, when you see weeping widows holding up
portraits of their men killed for these previous wars- it is clear that a brand new war with Iran would
only equal hell for all parties involved.
I say let us push back this “super power” and not fear a loss of relations if we don’t live up to its
every demand. Let us say “No!” without fearing that they would not have our backs if we needed them.
Australia needs to be independent and think for itself. Why would we support Spy Drones here in
the Southern Pacific? Who is there to spy on? Why are they spying on them? Do we not ask ourselves
these questions and doesn’t suspicion cloud our minds?
Sorry America but intimidation wont win you friends, it only creates enemies not only abroad but
also enemies within. Enough with the bullying and taunting, no nation likes to be smeared; trodden
and left to hang in shame to the public.
My Auntie came back from Iran over a year ago and she said it was an amazing country. The people
were hospitable and ever so warm, the culture was unique and different and despite its many
flaws it is not hard to imagine why we have such a warped image of a country we know so little about.
Wake up people.!!
Peace- Salam Alaykum
