This is what the Republican-elected, property-developer-president in the US White House in Washington has specifically threatened to do to the sovereign state of Iran: which action is presumably endorsed by the UK Conservative government – for it has said nothing to the contrary.
And the crime allegedly committed by Iran – to develop a nuclear deterrent such as that already possessed by Israel. In fact, Israel is estimated by American Scientists to have up to 400 nuclear weapons of mass destruction. Iran has none.
The population of Iran – one of the world’s oldest civilisations – in 2019 is nearly 83 million – ten times that of Israel. And Trump has threatened to kill every Iranian man, woman and child in the entire country whilst Britain and the world stay silent in the face of such openly threatened genocide. Never before in history has such a terrible threat of specific mass-murder been made.
What type of world do we now live in where a demented head of state and his family are in command of the most powerful military force on the planet and who has made a direct threat to liquidate over 80 million souls? A world where the United Nations and the Security Council that represents the international community of nearly two hundred nation states, remain silent in the face of such a heinous threat?
Maybe it’s just a nightmare from which we will awake. For if not, then our children have no future within a world gone mad. More insane even than in the extermination camps of Treblinka and Birkenau in the atrocities perpetrated by Germany in the Europe of World War Two, just over seventy years ago.
The threat by this demented American President must be countered by Europe, Britain and the entire international community. The fact that he was democratically elected is of no consequence. Hitler was also elected to be Chancellor in the Germany of 1933, from which time he proceeded to obliterate large parts of Europe. As a consequence, an estimated 50+ million people died, worldwide.
If that sounds familiar, it is. There must be regime change urgently. If not, then this world will be no place for children, or anyone else, anywhere on the planet. For all that will be left will be a deserted Trump Tower with shattered glass in an otherwise obliterated and radiated New York, standing in mute testament to another elected dictator who was allowed to rule the world for an instant in time.
