They bombarded #Sardasht in the year 1366. We are close to the anniversary of that crime. Is it a minor crime to bombard a city with chemical weapons and to kill thousands of people including children, the elderly, youth, and men and women? And the whole world was completely silent. This is a world in which all news agencies, newspapers and television networks reflect the fall of a cat or a fox into a pit. In such circumstances, these news agencies begin to rant about the efforts of such and such an organization to bring this animal out alive or to help a marine animal that has gotten stuck in the beach to go back to the water. The world makes a fuss about such things, but it remains silent about the chemical massacre of a city.
By “the world”, I do not mean nations because they do not have any tool and means. By “the world”, I mean those powers that control propaganda apparatuses. To put it in simple Farsi, I mean America, England, powerful western forces and the Zionists. It is these people who control the promotional environment in the world. It is they who do not allow anything to happen without their approval.
