Lack of morals

First published in Letters by

SO IRAN is now our best friend because they are militarily helping the Iraq government in their internal war, and it is expedient for us to resume a political relationship with Iran.

This proves that when push comes to shove, our government has no morals. They will cosy up to anyone who suits their aims, thus showing they are beneath contempt.

Geoff Robb, Hunters Close, Dunnington, York.

No Geoff Robb, that is not what it shows.

What it shows is that despite the pleadings of the warmongers, Blair and Israel's Netanyahu, the West was never convinced that Iran's nuclear programme was a threat, otherwise they would not embark on this collaboration. Neither was the public.
The present rapprochement with Iran has it's dangers. But Blair and Netanyahu, who both backed the disasters in Iraq and Afghanistan wanted another killing zone in Iran. Had they had their way, based on lies and bogus stories (as in Iraq) about Iran's intentions, their flames of their catastrophic misjudgements might have engulfed us all

Mr Robb seems to have forgotten that Iran recently elected a new, more moderate leader. If we're to help Iran back into the International commiunity, then its onl right we look to increase relations and approach them as friends.

Or we could keep our noses out of the internal affairs of foreign countries which are none of our concern?

Then all buisness would dry up and you'd be out of a job and homless.

International relations are about trade and jobs.

When did I say we should stop doing business with them? How would not trying to sort out civil warfare on the other side of the world lead to me being jobless and homeless?
There was a time when Britain was a superpower and could do pretty much anything it wanted to in any country in the world. That time is long gone.
We need to concentrate on running our country and stop trying to be a peacekeeper or police force in other countries.
