Stephen Harper is preparing Canadians to support a war against Iran by saying for the second time it is “the most serious threat to peace and security in the world”,
Iran has no nuclear weapons as does North Korea, China and Russia nor has it made war on other countries. Rather than this it fought off an invasion by Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, at that time an American ally being supplied with weaponry to avenge their consulate having been overrun.
Canadian Forces have gone to war against Iraq, Serbia, Afghanistan and Libya, not out of threats from these countries to us, but at the behest of the United States.
Iran poses no threat to Canada. Iran poses no threat to Canadians. An Iran War will come about through an attack by Israel, which considers it alone ought to possess nuclear weapons in the Middle East.
In one respect Harper is correct. Iran poses the “greatest threat to peace and security in the world”, not in itself but in that should it be attacked China and Russian spokesmen have both said they will take action. Action resulting in World War III.
Stephen Harper said he would change Canada. He has. Canada is not seeking to influence Israel and the United States to arrive at an accommodation with Iran, thereby bringing peace to the Middle East, as did Prime Minister Pearson . Rather than this, acting as a “peacemaker”, he has placed us in the position of being a “powder monkey” prepared to follow whatever directions Israel and the US choose to take.
