Two young persons. She, 19, he, 23. They wanted to marry, against the
wishes of their families. They belonged to different sects within the
same body of religion, and to two different nationality groups. They
were trying to escape their home country to a neighboring one so they
could begin a life together. The girl´s family found them, and handed
them over to an irregular but powerful local armed force. They were
murdered, one shot each.
What really matters is the country of destination of the dead: Iran.
The country of origin: Afghanistan.
Of course, this piece of news which I am summing up from a Buenos Aires
newspaper will be used to support Obama´s effort into Afghanistan, and
perhaps to whitewash the public image of the Iranian "regime" (soon to
become an "administration" in journalistic doublespeak, if the Afghan
option really becomes cetnral to the US).
But there is another side to the whole story: that the Taliban (the
local armed force) were delivered, fed and brought up by both Saudi
Arabia and USA. When speaking of Iran, these small tragedies should be
taken into account. Not to support the imperialist whitewash, and so on.
But to be careful at the moment of raising charges agaist those "theocrats".
I have always found it very funny that since the Iranian revolution
almost everybody has come to forget the deeply theocratical character of
the Saudi, Emirati, etc., "administrations". And of their scions.
