Netanyahu draws a red line for the U.N. general assembly
When Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced to the U.N. about its future plans, he would not know how much controversy it would bring. And it brought a lot.
On Sept. 22, 2012, Ahmadinejad attacked the United States and west European nations, calling them arrogant powers ruling for military dominance. He made sweeping claims about these nations capturing and enslaving millions of Africans, being ready to drop bombs on any country by citing the dropping of bombs in World War II on Japan, and dominating the U.N. security council. He questioned their ability and temperance to be international leaders and said that they have only brought misery and pain to other countries.
A few days later, Ahmadinejad called for a new world order to escape the West’s dominance over Iran. He argued that the only reason the U.S. has been interfering with Iran’s nuclear enrichment program was to gain dominance over their country. The U.S. is extremely pressured to negotiate a peace treaty with Iran in not only time but also external influence from Israel, Iran’s distant neighbor.
Benjamin Netanyahu drew a red line on a bomb and exclaimed to the U.S. that if they did not act soon, Iran would have bombs ready to attack Israel and the United States. Although not directly stating, Netanyahu insinuated that the U.S. should go to war against Iran and gain dominance over the nuclear enrichment facilities. However, many analysts and experts say that if the U.S. were to attack Iran, Iran would only speed up its bomb building and unleash it ahead of schedule. Israeli leaders are openly contemplating military action against Iran.
The whole big mess is somewhat attributed to the anti-American feelings in the Middle East. Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, and other countries are both scared and angry about the United States’ military occupation in the Middle East. If peace talks do not happen quickly, bombs may be dropping soon.
