He's killed millions of humans- and his New Statesman piece is proof he wants millions MORE killed.  As to Iran, he likely won't stop until he's restored some leftover Pahlevi to the "Peacock Throne".

JKR

How has he killed millions?

Who would Iranians elect if they had open elections in Iran? I don't think it would be a leftover Pahlavi but neither do I think it would be someone supported by Iran's  ruling class of Mullah elites.

In the Anti-Muslim Wars(Iraq & Afghanistan), up to two million died.

And I'm no fan of the existing Iranian regime, but it goes without saying the West would only bomb Iran in the hopes of replacing the mullahs with a new Shah- that they would never allow Iran to be a democracy.  The West proved they would never allow a democratic Iran, once and for all, in 1953, when they overthrew Mossadegh, the democratically-elected president of Iran, and insisted on replacing him with a Pahlevi restoration.  It was that restoration that made the events of 1979 inevitable.

The West allows there to be a democracy in Iraq so why wouldn't they allow one in Iran?

Uh, NDPP...YOU want to take this one?  I think you could explain it better than I can.

NDPP

That Iranian people are the only ones qualified and entitled to make decisions regarding their government.

JKR

How can the Iranian people make decisions regarding their government when the mullahs there won't let them?

Is that the democracy that nicely asked the occupation force to leave and have been ignored?

JKR

That's the one. I didn't say they were a powerful democracy.

Begs the question of what is a democracy if it has no territory that it is the sovereign authority over.

JKR

Is Canada sovereign since we are partially dependent on the U.S.?

Canada was not sovereign until the passage of the Westminster Act in 1931. Prior to that our armed forces were under the authority of the British High Command. After WWI all the colonials demanded a change since the English officers were arrogant incompetent assholes. I think currently with the integrated NATO command it can be argued we have reverted to the pre-1931 hierarchy except the arrogant incompetent assholes directing our armed forces are now American.

NDPP

That sounds about right.

JKR

It's a travesty that the arrogant incompetent assholes directing our military are not Canadian!

G7: What's the Point?

Tariq Ali: G7 merely a PR campaign to prepare western populations for action against China, Russia (and vid)

https://www.rt.com/shows/going-underground/526379-tariq-ali-campaign-g7/

On this edition of Going Underground, we speak to author and activist Tariq Ali. He discusses the purpose of the G7 meeting, which he believes is to prepare populations for action against Russia and China, drilling in ideological commitment among their citizens. He also talks about the role of NATO  nations in creating multiple refugee crises..."

In Full: Joe Biden and minders meet Boris Johnson in Cornwall ahead of G7 summit

Perhaps explains why there is no scheduled 'meet the press' for the upcoming Biden/Putin summit.

George Galloway: After Biden's addled appearance at the G7, we can only hope he's never left alone with the nuclear codes

https://on.rt.com/baa1

"...It was all theatre macabre, of course. The G7 represents neither the world's democracies nor its largest economies. Canada can be there only out of sentiment. Indonesia, India and other truly large democracies are excluded. The second largest economy in the world, China, likewise.

Europe's largest country, indeed the world's largest country - Russia is persona non grata over the 'invasion' of Crimea. But the US/UK invaders of almost every nation in the world sat at Her Majesty's pleasure. And China and Russia were still there, of course, living rent-free in the heads of those who were in attendance. It was a Cold War romp that descended on England's green and pleasant land.

And it was as regrettable a sight as poor old Joe shuffling around like an embarrasing elderly relative. We must hope that Mrs Biden is never indisposed, leaving her husband alone to kick the nuclear football."
