"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against
the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better,
but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse
than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking
primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions,
to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley
"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination.
All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.
"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
I’ve posted the recent text of the agreements reached BW IAEA and Iran. I wonder how hard one should fight to stop this campaign of DISINFORMATION against Iran. I am beginning to run low on steam! Reaching out for help.
Take heart, I know this is a harrowing time. I am hoping and praying the Iranian-American lobbies in Washington, though dwarfed by the belligerent Israel Lobby, will be working the diplomatic channels and that Russia, China and Europe might be more active in acting as counterweights to this current US administration. Iran’s involvement (as an observer, a status denied to the USA) in the emerging Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) might well be important here.
You have a great post there about the IAEA and it deserves to be widely read and transmitted. I will bookmark it as a delicious link in service of this. You are doing what you can and what you do is valuable. Encourage others to do what they can.
