nobel laureate for peace urges against military action in iran  

Posted by SjP in

At a youth peace conference in Los Angeles, feminist Shirin Ebadi says a confrontation by the U.S. over nuclear development could cause a setback in human rights in her native country.

According to the Los Angeles Times:

Iran's leading feminist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate said Saturday that a military confrontation between the United States and Iran over nuclear issues would strike a disastrous blow to her nation's struggling human rights movement by strengthening the hard-line Islamic regime.

In the article, Ebadi is quoted as saying:

"If there is a military attack on Iran, people will forget their differences with the government, and they will defend their country," she said in an interview. "It will also damage our human rights movement, because the government will expand its powers and limit freedoms using the excuse of national security."

Now, I ask you...what does she know? She's not a governor or even a former mayor who can see Russia from her own backyard. So what can she possibly know about human rights. Iran is a nuclear threat and I say "Bomb Baby Bomb" so we can "Drill Baby Drill". Read the entire article here.

Speak the Truth!

Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old SjP ain't got nothing more to say.
