Iran Issue: Is the Boss Always Right?

In all Probability Iran issue is giving a hidden feeling that the mother earth is underway to bear the pain of a terrible war. In spite of Iran repeating it again and again that its nuclear programme is for running its nuclear energy established and for increasing its electric production with the help of nuclear energy but America is not willing to accept it. It says that `Iran is telling a lie and it is adamant on its uranium enrichment programme only to manufacture its atomic weapons.` Iran`s answer goes that although its uranium enrichment programme is not at all for manufacturing of atomic weapons yet it is its personal affair whether when and how many atomic weapons should be manufactured or not by it. As Iran is an independent country having independent thinking and independent thoughts so America or any other country should have no objection on its manufacturing of atomic weapons.
In the meanwhile, an American spokesman scien mc comarck in his fresh statement has anxiously expressed his views that Iran has manufactured different parts of atomic weapons. Now chief scientists and electronic engineers of Iran are busy day and night in their try to assemble their different parts. Comarck is of the view that Iran has got the desired technique and progressed a lot in this direction.
Undoubtedly America has been successful to convince the countries of the world in this matter. It is quite clear by its success in international Atomic energy agency. Now according to America, there is a great possibility of danger in the world by the atomic weapons of Iran so it is not desirable for Iran to manufacture atomic weapons. In stead North Korea has openly & clearly told America that it has so many atomic bombs that it can strongly face any American attack. North Korea has refused to reveal the number of atomic weapons should remain a secret. This blank answer of North Korea could not multiply the worries of America. Why` Because, now it is the turn of Iran & not of North Korea. Iran & America will face each other; this is what was being waited for the last thirty years. Since the time, when the royal rule of Ahmed Raza Shah Pahelvi, who was the promoter of American interests in Iran, ended by Islamic Revolution. Since after the reign of Iran came in the hands of Islamic fundamentalists, Iran`s mainstream of thought changed & there was a `U` turn in the policy of Iran towards America.
The policy of Shah Pahelvi, who like all other countries of the world used to weave the process of development of Iran & thought of taking Iran on the roads of strength & power by becoming a puppet in the hands of America was completely dismissed. Now Iran has adopted the path of self sustenance & self dependence. All the supporters of Shah or America, who were controlling the top posts, were shot at to death. Three decades ago, Islamic power of Iran had given a message to America that GOD is supreme & more powerful than America. Now how could America hear it, when most of the Arab nations worked as puppets of America, Iran is going against it.
American attack on Iraq was condemned by most of the countries of the world & even in America itself. American President George Bush replied it in a very philosophic manner. He said in a recent statement that undoubtedly the reason of attack on Iraq may be wrong but the attack was right. It means that the `boss is always right.` Right in the same way why is Iran starting its Uranium enrichment programme & whatever the world may say about it but what America says is right. That Iran is going to manufacture atomic weapons & its atomic weapons are fatal for the world. Now this Shia majority country may have to face the wrath of American army in the near future. This expectancy is gaining strength day by day. The main reason is that this time is most suitable for American army. Under the pretension of Iraq & Afghanistan, a sufficient number of its soldiers are present in Middle Asia. Under the prevailing circumstances, if there is a war, American army can easily fight against Iran because of its pre-prepared army basis in Kuwait & Iraq.
Now the question arises if there is a war, will it be a like of Iraq, whose result is much ado about nothing. It may be a war for a week or with unimaginary results. It is important to have a look at the history of Shia community. This nation, who accepts `Hazrat Ali` as its 1st Imam takes inspiration from Hazrat Ali & his sons `Hasan` & `Husain`. Every year on the eve of `Moharram`, remembering the sacrifice of its third Imam Hazrat Imam Husain in Karbala, it undertakes astonishing deeds as shedding its own blood & walking on the burning charcoal, follows the ideals of Hazrat Ali that `Honorable death is better than despicable life`. Following this policy, Imam Husain fought against cruel Syrian King Yazeed, sacrificed all the members of his family but thought it better to keep Islam alive. He didn`t accept Yazeed as Islamic King. It seems that this nation will have to undergo the same type of test & another `Karbala` is waiting for it. There is an assumption in Shia community. `In incidents like Karbala, martyrs live forever & nobody remembers the cruel persons.`
But, will the Shia community of Iran be able to fight against America as Hazrat Husain fought with the courage that faces the cruelty` With the change of time, it all has changed. Now if American statement is accepted that Iran is near to its preparation of atomic weapons then if war is thrusted upon it, will it not use them in the war` Some experts believe that long before, Iran has attained the ability to produce atomic weapons. Some experts accept that Iran equipped itself with nuclear weapons. If all these arguments are accepted then just imagine the scene of coming war. Now it is meaningless to doubt Iran that it will use the nuclear weapons, because by now only America has been an accused of using atomic bombs on the Japanese cities, Nagasaki & Hiroshima. So America has been the most irresponsible & not trustworthy in this matter. Now if, `The boss is always right` & the danger is from Iran & not from America then what will be the horrors if Iran uses the atomic weapons`
To know it, we shall have to have a look at the consequences of that atomic attack which was done by America at 5:29 a.m, on July 16, 1945 from the desert of Alam Grado Town of New Mexico on Japanese city, Nagasaki. This terrible blast by atomic weapon plan resulted in immediate death of three lacs of people & the effect of its radiation can be seen on all its citizens till now. The intensity of its blast was equal to twenty thousands tons of explosion. There was a four kilometer deep ditch at the place of blast. A big colored & shining cloud of smoke up to height of 12 kms appeared in the sky. At a distance of hundreds of Kilometers as if the sun was rising. Even a blind girl, who was standing 15 kms away form the spot, saw shine of the blast with its blind eyes.
It was the horror of an atomic explosion done in 1945, a twentieth century explosion, which is beyond description. Obviously the horrible consequences of 21st century atomic bomb may be used by Iran, America or any other country is beyond imagination. God forbid! If this mother earth has to ever face the atomic armaments war, but as is said, `The boss is always right` then every thing is right except you. This American policy will be responsible for the upheaval of this earth because war is nothing but destruction & devastation of humanity. As Sahir ludhianvi, a renowned Urdu poet said:
Isliye aiy Sharif Insano, Jang Taltee rahe to behtar hai,
Aap aor Hum, Sabhi ke aangan mein, shamma jalti rahe to behtar hai!!
`It is better to avoid war so that a light will remain visible in our yards.`
